Playtime is one of the most important things of childhood. Imaginary play with has been a welcomed addition to our house now that my youngest turned 3. She and her big sister have created a whole other world by being able to play imaginary things together. One of their favorite things now is roll playing families rolls and life activities with dolls.
We were excited to welcome a new addition to our house: a Hi-Rise Wooden Doll House from Melissa & Doug. With great excitement we opened the large box and discovered the pieces needed to put it together. Taking the time to build a toy together as a family can make this special purchase so much more valuable to your child. It took my girls and me one afternoon to put it together. They had a lot of fun doing it and now it’s “theirs” which down the road will help with them taking care of it.
Plus my littlest one said as we were building “That’s a GREAT idea, Mom! You are a genius!” Truth be told the guide is great and didn’t take much to build it, but she doesn’t have to know that right? I think it’s a valuable lesson for our kids to build projects together and see that girls can build too.
They had so much fun on “Moving Day” as they pretended to unload the furniture and design the house. They used their Wooden Car and Passengers from Melissa & Doug as the moving company. We added this to go along with our doll house. Role playing with vehicles can be a valuable lesson with kids. As we spend a bit more time with our doll house we may even add some new Wooden Doll Family figures. We love adding a little bit of diversity to our toys as well.
By adding a doll house to your home, it’s amazing to see the amount of things children will discuss, learn and imagine together. There’s so much potential for vocabulary and life skills to be learned from this addition to our playtime. Plus it’s a place to help kids work through life’s issues in a safe place. Through doll house play your child can learn so many things.
