My First Barbie - Doesn't This Take You Back?
For those of us old enough to remember, there was a time when "My First Barbie" was on every young girls wish-list.
Perfect for the young girl looking for her "starter" Barbie doll; I was more than thrilled when I held this iconic doll in my hands for the very first time.
Looking back, I remember spending hours on end with my sister; styling my First Barbie doll's hair and creating makeshift clothes for her imaginary social occasions.
Fast Forward to the present, and in my search for a great toy that would encourage my toddlers imagination and creativity much like my First Barbie doll did for me, I had my mind set on a wooden Melissa and Doug deluxe wooden furnished doll house.
In addition to being furnished, this cute doll house was in strict compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) and seemed to be the perfect gift idea for my little ones.
However, considering the size and price, I decided that a "starter" dollhouse would be the perfect fit for my two darling lovelies. Just right for small spaces, little hands, but big imaginations, I opted for the Melissa and Doug Fold and Go Mini Dollhouse.
Also compliant with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), this mini wooden dollhouse weighs only 2 pounds (about 3 or 4 with the pieces inside) and measures in at 10.2 x 7.5 x 13.5 inches.
In addition to the two flexible wooden play figures (one male one female), this just-right wooden dollhouse comes equipped with eleven pieces of wooden furniture, a wooden flat screen television set (what wooden guy-doll wouldn't love that), opens for easy access and folds for convenient storage, and possesses handles for carrying ease.
Painted in pink with gray-blue shingles, this adorable wooden dollhouse is put together extremely well inside and out. Since the pieces are made entirely from wood (excluding the hair and clothes on the wooden figures), there is no concern over loose/loosening screws or toxic plastics.
A closer look will tell the keen observer how much time and patience was put into each piece, ensuring the safety of the child playing with it.
Meticulous detail has even been given to the edges of each piece (they posses rounded smooth corners rather than sharp hard edges) to prevent accidental injury.
In addition, the pieces are simple and not overly decorated to allow your child's imagination to shine through.
Purchased from Amazon.com for a little under $30; this wooden miniature fold and go doll house is well worth the money spent by moms and dads, in search for the perfect "starter" wooden dollhouse for their little ones - my toddlers haven't stopped playing with it since.
