If your little one loves playing with dolls then a dollhouse may be the best gift that you can get them. It’s going to give them somewhere to play with their dolls and it’s going to help them with their imagination. Playing house with their dolls can be a whole lot of fun, and depending on the type of house that they have, they’ll use different dolls with it. Take a look at our top features to figure out which type of dollhouse might be best for your little one and then see what’s out there.
Age Range: What age is the dollhouse intended for? If you have an older child you want a dollhouse that’s designed more for them. If you have a younger child you may want something with larger pieces for them to use.
Dimensions: What are the dimensions of the dollhouse? You want something that will easily fit in the space you have available. You’ll be able to choose a dollhouse that works for them and for what’s available at home.
Material: What is the dollhouse actually made out of? Is it made with wood or plastic? These two materials are most common though you may find pressed board or something else. They impact durability and style.
Pieces: How many pieces do you get? Are you going to have to assemble your dollhouse or is it ready for your little one as soon as it comes in? The pieces help you figure out the value you’re getting for your money too.
Includes Dolls: Do you get dolls with the dollhouse? Maybe your little one doesn’t have dolls yet or maybe they always want more. If it comes with dolls you know they’re going to fit perfectly with the dollhouse too.
Weight: How much does it weigh? You want something that you can easily move around if needed but that your child can’t tip over. A moderate weight could be important for this so it’s secure but still mobile.
There are more dollhouses out there than you might think, and each one of them is going to give you some different features. Your little one might have a preference for the style of dollhouse they get, but maybe they’re not picky. Take a look at each of these and see how each one is going to work for your child (or children) and whether it’s the ideal fit for their dolls and their interests.
