The Best Doll Houses For Imaginative Play

Updated on June 3, 2014

Play With Imagination An Important Part of Development

They were the best dolls and one of the best dollhouses of my childhood. I can remember the Christmas Santa gave me my first . It was made of metal which had furniture, carpet and even a fireplace painted in place. It came with a package of molded plastic furniture and of course a family . I love that toy and played with it every chance I got. I would imagine myself living in that little imaginary world with all the luxuries of a built in pool on the back patio, and a balcony off the master bedroom.

My girls loved pretend play too when they were small. They had lots of furniture, and people to live in mine. I can remember the cute little accessories that came with it such as food, and a refrigerator with a door that opened. When the girls were older we even built a wood one from a kit and built the furniture from a special furniture kit. The girls got to pick the wallpaper, paint and flooring just as if it were a real.

I am sure most children would enjoy having a home of their own. It would make a great gift and if you build one from a kit you will get to spend quality time together. Making furniture can be fun. I like making the curtains and linens for the beds. My eldest daughter decided she would make little pillows for the bed. I think anytime you can spend with your children working together the better. Imaginary play is a great learning experiences.
