Dollhouses for Girls

Updated on October 19, 2009


Girls who love to play with dolls, would probably enjoy a nice dollhouse, and whether you have a homemade one that has been passed down in your family or you purchase a new one, your child will love it.

There are many dollhouses that you can purchase ranging from your child's first dollhouse to a more complicated and elaborate dollhouse that your child can grow up and use as she grows. Dollhouses go from pretty simple with just a few rooms to pretty elaborate with multiple rooms, sounds, and lights.

Depending on what kind of dollhouse you are looking for you may want to check out those below. Just be leery of small parts and young children, and make sure that your child's dolls will fit. If you get a dollhouse that is too small, then Barbie just may not fit.

But, if you feel crafty, you can take a few trips to your local home improvement store to purchase supplies to make your own dollhouse. Your daughter can pass it down to her daughter and granddaughter. 

There are many options that you can consider. Just remember to keep your child's wants, needs, and safety, in mind.

      Had the barbie (w/elevator) as a little girl and I loved it! My 6-yr old is asking for the same one - problem is, I already bought one; just not Barbie. My dilema is: Do I return it and go for the Barbie one?
