Dolls houses have been a fixture in kids world of play for hundreds of years. The simple reason is that dolls houses offer children the chance to explore and act out situations and experiences from real life in a safe and inconsequential way. Put simply they are great way for children to rehearse for real life. Many dolls houses have become heavily gendered towards girls but given the space and encouragement to explore dolls houses they can become equally engaging and important for boys.

Emotional intelligence comes from children acting out scenes from everyday life. Spatial awareness is enhanced as children arrange the furniture.
