DIY Dollhouse Kit – Miniature Greenhouse Robotime “Cathy’s Flower House”

Today, I’m showing you a new dollhouse kit I received from Robotime / RoLife. It’s from their DIY houses series, Cathy’s Flower House. Since it’s a dollhouse kit, you will have to build pre-assembled items on your own. It also comes with a manual that contains all the instructions from building the house, furniture, and flowers to LED light installation.

I remember seeing this in Banggood and I really wanted this kit for my Nendoroid, Cu-poche and toy photography.  I would like to thank Robotime for sending me this sample.

Watch the video of how I made the dollhouse kit here:

Aside from the miniature furniture and the greenhouse, I also made tons of miniature flowers. These are printed flowers provided by the kit for you to cut out, fold and create.


Everything is detailed and I wanted to make sure that I made it right.


I love how the flowers look so real.


Patience is the key to finish all these. I recommend to take your time and enjoy every bit of it.



At night, the greenhouse looks very well-lit and realistic.


I feel like I want to get inside this tiny greenhouse and look around it, perhaps relax a little bit.


In the morning, I set up the dollhouse outside our garden and took some pictures.

A little bit of sunshine in your greenhouse.



By looking at the right angle and composition, you can get a picture of this dollhouse that looks real.




A Nendoroid can fit inside the greenhouse only if you put her inside first before attaching the house frame to the floor. I envy my Nendoroid, the little one enjoys the lovely view inside the greenhouse.

Someone’s tending the flowers ❤


Oh! It’s Nendoroid Miho Azuki of ‘Bakuman’.


I’m in a hurry so I only took a few pictures. I’ll try to re-arrange the greenhouse for toy photography and will share some more.

    Oh wow someone really put some thought into this model kit, it’s so elaborately designed, it’s not just “cheap” plastic ^^. I like gardening and plants, so this kit is quite appealing to me.
    Judging from the video (with the always nice music 😉) it takes quite some time to build.
    The result looks lovely and I also like the realistic looking paper plants 😊

      One of my fave in creating videos is choosing the right music, glad you enjoyed it too. ❤ The dollhouse kit is a lot of work, it was also in this project that I accidentally cut my finger. It's quite deep and quite bled a lot. Had to apply pressure and soak it with ice cold water to stop the bleeding. The first ever injury in my history of making dio/rooms. It was hard filming with a band-aid on a finger so I removed it at the last part and it still hurts by the time I put them all together. Even with what happened, I still loved doing the things that I love. I'm happy that the dollhouse turned out really pretty and the video got lots of YouTube views. 😉 😀 ❤

        Sorry to know that you shed blood for the work on our dollhouse. Hope you can recover soon! Best wishes to you!

        I Just got my kit but the instructions booklet is in Japanese. I so welcome all your pictures and video to help me put it together.

    You really bring me the sense of beauty from the dollhouse!, it makes me believe that even a dollhouse has its life! Thank you!

    1. Kixkillradio says:

      Hi, Wayne! Thanks, glad you liked it too. It is my objective to bring them to life and make them realistic. From toys, figures, miniatures to dollhouse. ❤

    2. Kixkillradio says:

      Thank you. It’s all good now and it healed completely. I think I overworked that day because I was too eager to finish it, I was really excited to put it all together. Despite it all, it’s still fun to build this greenhouse. It was delightful to see it with my Nendoroids. My hands are ready with your next dollhouse and looking forward to it, I promise I’ll be careful next time. ^_^

    Your greenhouse turned out so well! I just ordered the kit for myself and after watching your video I can’t wait to start on it! Where did you purchase the grass that you used for outside of the greenhouse? It looks so realistic!

  4. Linda says:

    I received by Greenhouse kit, but the directions are in Chinese. Does anyone know how to obtain the directions in english?

    1. Kixkillradio says:

      Hi! I think it is best to email directly the company. Here’s their contact info:

  5. Annette says:

    Hi Is it possible to download a English version from somewhere of the manual? Thank you

    1. Annette says:

      I was given the kit as a gift so do not know where it came from

    2. Kixkillradio says:

      Hi! I think it is best to email the manufacturer directly

    3. Toni Mounts says:

      I need one as well. Watching the video it shows your manual in English but mine is in Japanese. When I emailed the company they said they are working on an English version. So don’t understand because it says easy to understand and in English.

  6. Mica says:

    Would you please help me? I ordered the kit and my directions are not in English. The company wants me to mail my kit back and they will send out a new one. I’d like to just ask if someone wwho has reviewed the kit would email me the English directions. Thanks so much for considering, Mica from philly

  7. Daphne says:

    Hi, I just bought this to build in China and unfortunately the manual that came with it is in Chinese. Any chance you could share the English version of the manual with me?

    1. Ellen Pekarek says:

      I also need an English copy. I would really appreciate it Thanks

  8. Janice Roberts says:

    Hi, I was also sent the Chinese version of the manual. I have tried contacting robotimeonline and also where I purchased it from and am getting nowhere. Anyone got a copy and could help? I would be grateful. Can do so much without them, but want to be sure with the majority as it is my first build.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    Hi there! This came out amazing! I just ordered it and it will be my third robolife kit. Do you have a recommendation for a type of glue to use? Every type I have tried in the past has smeared all of the transperant sheeting. Thanks so much!
