Every child builds an imaginary house at one time or another. By doing this, they express their creativity and get a chance to use their imagination. This is important in their education as it gives them an opportunity to learn about family and homes. By providing your child with a wooden dollhouse, you also give them a chance to aid creativity and imagination. The history of dollhouses goes back a long time. They were first built more than 400 years ago.
During the 1600 to 1700’s, miniature wooden houses were built for wealthy families which used them as ornaments in display cabinets. They were first built for adults who appreciated the finer details and structures of these miniature houses. At that time, they were extremely expensive and fragile, therefore children were forbidden to even touch them.
As the years went by, the designs started to get more modern. Wooden dollhouses became the most popular toy for girls at that time, which made it one of the most popular gifts as well. This created a whole new era where little girls started to play ‘house.’
These days, doll houses come in a variety of shapes and sizes. They even come in multiple stories, which makes them even more realistic. By creating their own fantasy home, little girls can freely express their own personality. This is also where many girls starts to learn role-playing with their family and friends.
Dollhouses are also available in many other materials like plastic, but these are proven not to be as reliable as the ones made out of wood. Wooden houses are stronger than other materials, and if the wood is adequately treated, the dollhouse can last a very very long time. Wood also gives the house a more natural and realistic look, which makes it more attractive. Many people spend a lot of money to build the miniature dollhouse of their dreams. They even furnish it with little cupboards and small furniture. Toys can get quite expensive if made from proper wood, but this will also ensure that it is good quality.
If you are wondering what to buy for your little girl, consider getting her a wooden dollhouse to play with. They might seem boring or old-fashioned to you, but they always get the attention of little girls, even as the years go by. Capture your childs heart with a play dollhouse, you will be glad you did!
