For centuries, wooden doll houses have delighted children of all ages through imaginary play. Much to their parents’ delight, boys and girls have found themselves lost for hours on end creating characters, setting up homes, and developing storylines.
Doll houses are not only fun and creative, but they help to develop social and problem-solving skills as well. For an educational and highly engaging addition to your child’s bedroom or playroom, a beautiful wooden dolls house is sure to be a win/ win for parents and children alike.
Doll houses help children explore the world around them
Today’s children have their pick of many different styles of doll houses - ranging from lightweight and portable such as this Ollie Ella Holdie House, to more extravagant sets like this Hape Doll Family Mansion.
The good news is that whichever style they choose, a wooden dolls house will be sure to engage your child and help them to learn more about family and relationships. By role playing on their own or with family members, children can mimic real life scenarios that will help them to explore emotions, communication skills and develop self confidence in the process.
Playing with doll houses now can provide life lessons for the future
Through imaginary play, there’s no limit to the conversations and situations that can arise. While their imaginations are running wild, children will have the opportunity to expand their vocabulary, develop fine motor skills, create and decorate, make decisions, organize, and find ways to resolve conflict. All of these skills are transferable to real life and will help prepare them for kindy and beyond.
As the child gets older, a doll house can grow with them as they can create more complex scenarios and even more creative storylines. Eavesdropping on the conversations your child’s dolls have with one another can be absolutely hysterical and guaranteed adorable!
From retro to modern, doll houses can match any décor style
