My childhood is filled with many happy Christmas mornings, so it was hard to narrow it down, but there is one gift that will always hold a special place in my heart. For months leading up to Christmas, I begged and pleaded for a dollhouse. I dreamed of a place for my dolls to call home without the worry of my older brother’s GI Joe soldiers invading. When I woke that Christmas and raced towards the tree, I did not see the dollhouse I had longed for, but there was something better waiting for me. Santa had brought me a dollhouse that I could build myself!
I cherish the memories I have of my dad and me bonding as we assembled the dollhouse together. The dollhouse was something I was proud of and cherished. I loved being able to pick the colors for the walls and selecting the furniture for each room. Maybe that’s where my love for design began!
Now, many years later, my two-year-old daughter is asking for a dollhouse. While she may still be a little young to build her own, there are plenty of options on the market for the young dollhouse dreamers! Here are a couple of my personal favorites.
