Doll houses: A Childhood Tradition

Dollhouses are one of the great treasures of childhood. Who doesn’t remember all those hours spent rearranging the doll house furniture just so, or playing out thousands of scenarios that mimicked real life. Doll houses gave us the chance to explore real life, while remaining safe at home.
Doll houses remain just as popular today as they were in our own childhood, still allowing children to give flight to their imaginations. And today, doll houses come in so many styles, there’s something to catch every child’s interest. The 4-Sided Playhouse by Maxim is sure to delight any child. It’s colorful, open sided construction leaves room for multiple children to play together. Your children will spend hours in cooperative, creative play.
The Savannah Dollhouse by KidKraft is reminiscent of the lavish homes of the old South. There are plenty of charming details in the design. The downstairs bathroom has a claw foot tub, and the grand staircase leads you to the upper levels. The wooden construction of this dollhouse means it’s built to last, and would make a wonderful heirloom your child can pass down to future generations.
For play on the go, try the Fold & Go Dollhouse by Melissa & Doug. This lightweight doll house is ready to fold up and go at a moment’s notice, with a convenient carrying handle. It comes with two figures, and eleven pieces of furniture, and your child will love the working garage door.
