Bennett House by brinca dada is an oasis in the sea of glitzy toy houses. Heavily influenced by the De Stijl movement of theearly 20th century, it emphasizes lines, squares and rectangles in asymmetrical patterns while minimizing color. Fans ofRietveld's Schroder House will recognize another influence. Architect Tim Boyle explains how Bennett House breaks out of thetownhouse genre: "Townhouses are typically a stack of floors with a few windows on each floor, and no inside/outsiderelationship. I prefer architecture that reveals structure and engineering, hence windows extend past floors to show the weightand thickness of the structure."
Bennett House is more than just a pretty facade--its clever design and use of space invites play whether open or closed. Thetownhouse features a two-story living room, elevator, roof top pool and glass rail balconies in both the master bedroom andchildren's bedroom. And Bennett House is made of CARB-certified woods and non-toxic, lead-free paints and stains, so it iseasy on the environment.

Comments about Bennett House:
Let the buyer beware. This dollhouse looks nice in the photos but they are very misleading. As is mentioned in another review, this house is put together with screws. You can't see the screw heads in the photos, but you can in the one you assemble. They look terrible.
The assembly instructions are incorrect and missing information so it took me 2 days to assemble it, not the 2 hours they said it would. The brown paper that is left on the windows is virtually impossible to remove completely.
Also, the "swimming pool" they advertise is actually just a large hole in ceiling/floor. Like I said, very misleading.
The elevator is a nice idea, but it doesn't actually stay in place when you raise it. This means it takes 2 people to use it because of the location of the nob used to raise and lower it. It's basically a nob on a dowel and a string, which lets go as soon as you take your hand off the nob. They should have included a latch to hold it in place.
I attempted to contact Brinca Dada about these problems and they were impossible to reach. They only communicate by email and only answered when I finally threatened to contact Visa. Very bad Customer Support as you can see.
So what it comes down to is this, the design was a nice idea in theory, but they did very poorly in the execution. If I hadn't spent so much time putting it together and it wasn't so difficult to send it back, I would. Luckily I got it on sale at least. DO NOT PAY FULL PRICE. It will cost you at least $30 at the hardware store purchasing missing screws and covers for the screw heads.
