  1. Greenleaf Garfield Measurments

    Hannah, did you check in the Greenleaf store here, as it shows the dimensions? I just measured mine which is not easy due to the porch and my landscaping.  You will have to look at pictures so you know which measurements I took. I hope this helps: left side of the house (looking from the front it's left side), is 37 inches to the porch and add 2 1/2" for the front steps. The front measures 29 inches. The right side is in an "L" shape, left side is 14 inches and the right side is 17 inches. The back is 17 inches. I hope these are close enough to help you out.
  2. My Garfield Arrived

    Good luck with your Garfield!! Hope you have a big room in your house when you have finished it. I cut the whole right hand section off and when I was at the shingling stage moved the two pieces downstairs and finished it. It would not have fit thru my doorways. I put it in a corner as it needed to be able to turn....big big big. lol  
  3. My sister in law bought me the blue kit which turned out beautiful! Porcelain fridge, toilet and bathroom sink, long wires for the lights. I did change the sofa as the material included made the glue show thru. I knew she bought herself two kits that she would never do so she brought them with her when she flew up so I could do them for her. Imagine my SHOCK to find they were NOT 1:24 scale as advertised. The yellow house must be a 1:48 and the fairy house 1:144. I would not recommend the yellow house. There was no fridge and the bathroom toilet and sink were made of wood and not sure I can wire it as there are only two inches of wire to work with. Fairy house is adorable and fortunately not too many pieces to glue together. In appreciation she sent me the pink house kit and it is beautiful as well. Toilet and bathroom sink ceramic (?), but weird...no fridge BUT TWO OVENS. An oven in the stove and a wall oven. I made the wall oven into a fridge. Do they not have fridges in China?? Anyways, just wanted to give anyone interested in these kits a heads up that only the blue and pink ones are 1:24 and good quality.  
  4. Turntables: best one for the money?

    Oops, I meant the $10.99 metal once is under the rather large Harrison. If it can hold a house that big it would be good for the Beacon Hill.  Good Lord....too many dollhouses.lol
  5. Turntables: best one for the money?

    I bought two from miniatures.com. The first one was wood for $46.00usd (converted to Canadian it's really expensive) plus the shipping, and I used it under my huge Garfield. I wasn't paying that price again so bought another one from them for $10.99usd which is under my Beacon Hill. I like the cheaper one as it turns much easier. I buy most of my miniatures from them when they have their 20% off sale: $46.00  $10.99    
  6. Totally "shocked" "he" called back right away and said he confirmed my purchase from the company I said I purchased from so there is no charge for the pieces.
  7. Got thru this morning to what I call a very unfriendly man. They charge $20.00usd per sheet plus shipping unless you can prove you purchased a kit from them in the last 30-45 days.
  8. Hi Sable: Yes, they are 3 hours ahead of me....I did take that into consideration as well.  
  9. Thanks Holly but I have all this information. This is the phone number I called and this is the email I used. Neither will get me a live person
  10. I've spent 10 days, calling 4 times a day, left a message on their answering system AND emailed them and I can't get anyone to answer or reply at Greenleaf. I need some replacement sheets but hard to order them when I can't talk to anyone. Is there a secret way to contact them?? Getting pretty frustrated.

    Hi Melissa: You were asking about where to buy the Primrose and someone sent you a link to "Quality Toys". I was just wondering if you were able to order from them.  I sent a friend of mine the link as she is trying to buy the Greenleaf Lily and they had a good price. She is snowbirding in Seattle and tried the link but it wouldn't let her order and she couldn't get thru on the phone. Just wondering if you had tried them.

    Thanks, Inge

      Hi Inge,

      Unfortunately, I couldn't place an order through Quality Toys. I kept getting error messages. Hopefully, Greenleaf will have the Primrose soon... fingers crossed! I hope your friend eventually gets her Lily.

      Have a great day!

      -Melissa

      Hey Melissa: Thanks for your response.  Now we know my friend wasn't doing anything wrong.  Weird though.

  12. Here are a few of the pictures of the quality of wood front and back. You can see the back where most of it is not cut through.

    You are sooooooooooo funny....didn't notice because I was looking at all the other really really nice stuff. lol
  14. I bought it from a reputable company and they are replacing it. I took about 15 pieces out and they could not in any way be pressed out as they were not cut through.
