Where the best toys for kids are concerned, dollhouses are a timeless and functional option. Dollhouses are more than just playthings — they merge fun with cognitive development, keeping your kids engaged for hours on end while you get some much – deserved personal time. A dollhouse also translates to improved social skills. When your kid(s) play with this toy, they get a good grasp of family dynamics and learn to express and handle their emotions — anger, anxiety, irritability, love, joy, happiness and all other human emotions. And of course, this is all thanks to its roll play feature.
I also love how dollhouses encourage teamwork and collaboration between kids. Considering that teamwork is a valuable life skill, you will agree that dollhouses for kids are a must-have! And the creativity it brings to the table? You can’t help but love this valuable toy. The whole process of furnishing and decorating a doll house stimulates mental creativity and development. The act of positioning small items in the often-restricted spaces hones fine motor skills — soon your child or toddler will get a great handle on their motor abilities and grow up strong and healthy. What more could you ask for!
And need I mention how it provides ample time away from the screen — cartoons and kiddies shows are great, but let’s face it, compared to a dollhouse, they have fewer cognitive, educational and physical effects on kids. The benefits, advantages and pros of a dollhouse is a long list, but there’s a drawback — it is nearly impossible to find a cheap and functional one!
Finding a dollhouse that’s less than $75 is like finding a needle in a haystack — daunting and futile. But good news! We found these fantastic cardboard brownstones from the Swedish brand, Our Children’s Gorilla. They are priced at $35 each at Huset, a must-visit store Scando store in LA. This dollhouse is everything a good dollhouse should be and more, and the price tag makes it an “unbelievable” steal! Want more toy recommendations for kids? Learn more on our blog!
