Where can I buy a gingerbread house kit? Thanks.

Found 27th Oct 2008
Hi,
My 6 year old son has eating difficulties but he's discovered he likes gingerbread so I promised I'd make a gingerbread house with him for Christmas.
I've found a few online but they all look to be small and pretty naff looking. Does anyone know where I can find a nice, substantial gingerbread house kit that is a reasonable price?

This is my first message so I hope I've got it in the right place and done it properly.
I'd really appreciate any help or advice, as would my little man.

Many thanks

i tried to find one last year and ended up with a tiny rubbish one

could you not use the small ones as a template to enlarge to make a bigger one.

tbh I didn't take that much notice of them just thought they were a bit pricey for what they were ....

You should have a look in John Lewis each year they have some really big ones in, Can obviously get the smaller ones too but have a look anyway

I've certainly seen them in Ikea before now if there's one anywhere near you? Not been this year but had one before from there a few years ago that my niece enjoyed putting together....

Also I'm pretty sure either Aldi or Lidl have them in the run up to xmas, possibly not til December.

If you are near one, Ikea have them in at the moment, sorry can't remember how much they were but can't have been much because I was thinking about buying one!

They are pretty easy to fathom together you just need to make sure the sides are equal, the roof was fun kept the kids quiet trying to get it too fit!!

the wonkyer the better in this house lol

They have them in Ikea for £1.95!

We had a really big one last year, nice soft gingerbread, but it came from our local deli in Betws-y-coed, so not much help I'm guessing- sorry lol

BHS maybe?

We got ours last year from Aldis. Seen them in tesco and BHS already this year. Be warned though they don't always taste good. (Ours last year was yucky)


Oh and welcome to Hukd

just don't forget to have the witches legs hanging out of the oven..........

I realise this maybe a little after the fact now, but, just in case you haven't seen one yet, I bought one yesterday from Lidl, 'Favorina, Snow House' for £4.99.

The box is around shoe box size, looks great - not opened it as its to take to France for niece & nephews.

Cant find a pic anywhere though, soz....

Thank you all for your help. :w00t:
I'm not near an Ikea but we go to Tesco regularly and sometimes we manage to get to an Aldi or Lidl. Especially thank you for the recipe and instructions for a "from scratch" version!
