A Miniature Dream House

Friday, December 13, 2013
If you ask any girl with a dollhouse what their favourite toy is, it’s probably going to be their dollhouse. Doll houses are more than a simple toy, they’re actually quite empowering. Children don’t have much say when it comes time to furnish and decorate their own homes, but a kid with a dollhouse is a homeowner, with all the rights and privileges of an adult with their own house.

There are several varieties of dollhouses available, but what really counts is the accessories. Just as a new home isn’t quite yours until you’ve got it just how you like it, a doll house isn’t quite right until it’s got all the right furniture and decor. Looking online for accessories is a great way to select from a wider variety, rather than just trying to see if the local department store has just the right stuff.


Of course, selecting the dollhouse itself is an important process, too. What is your child’s dream house? A nice, rustic place out in the country, or a three story mansion in the hills? Shopping at online toy stores, it won’t be too hard to find just the right home for six inch mom and dad.

Something else to keep in mind is, of course, your child’s age. There are plenty of dollhouses available for older children, full of delicate, realistic windows and functioning doors, as well as perfectly scaled accessories, like dressers with real working drawers. For younger children, though, these more complex dollhouses can be a little too fragile. You may even find some neat doll houses in the baby toys / baby products section when you buy toys online or at toy shops.

Plenty of simple wooden dollhouses are available for the child who’s not quite ready for something made out of delicate plywood and tiny brass door knobs. These include plastic dollhouses, such as those made by Fisher Price, as well as wooden dollhouses, by companies like Pintoys.

Once your child has a fully furnished dollhouse of their own, they’ll need a family to live in that home, of course. Pintoy makes adorable little rag doll style families to occupy your child’s miniature dream home, while Fisher Price offers fully posable plastic dolls, similar to Barbie dolls.

Other accessories offered include dogs, complete with miniature doghouses, dog beds, and food and water bowls, as well as miniature vehicles, such as the Fisher Price Loving Family Minivan and SUV, to facilitate miniature vacations and road trips (or just some daily errands, it’s all part of the dollhouse experience).

One of the great things about good dollhouses is that they become more than childhood pretend play toys. Many adults still have their childhood dollhouses, while others will purchase new ones. In fact, the miniature and doll market for adults is very popular right now.

By providing loads of customization options for the dedicated doll houses hobbyist, it’s sort of the flipside of Railroad Modelling, providing hours of in-depth enjoyment for hobbyists of any age. It can become a passion that grows right alongside the child, into adulthood, as they outfit their dollhouse with more sophisticated features. On the higher end, there is even miniature wallpaper and carpeting you can add to make the home truly your own.

Of course, forgetting for a moment all of the high end accessories you can add onto a dollhouse, the primary appeal of a dollhouse is simple. You get to have your own tiny dream house. With some of the better dollhouses, you can even do some remodelling (once you’ve learned how to operate dollhouse tools and building materials, of course) and other serious customization, all without having to expend the immense time and effort involved in changing your actual home. For both children and adults, this is a wonderful form of expression and a great way to empower oneself.

Before purchasing dolls houses and furniture for your little girl, do not forget to consider the dolls she has in her closet. Big dolls will look out of place in miniature houses.

She can pretend that they are preparing meals in her miniature kitchen, watch television in its living area, or throw a pool party in its vast pool area.

Molly On The Beam!

Friday, March 22, 2013
Hi! Molly here! Yesterday I did my beam routine, and we thought we'd share it with you all today! :) Now I normally wear my gymnastic leotard, but today I was just practicing, not performing, so I stuck with my practice outfit.




Bam! I had just landed my back-handspring when I realized I was being photographed. 







Oh, hello there! Watch me do my glorious cartwheel!










Ta-da! 

Soon, I began getting kind of proud and uhh...well, did something NOT on my routine. That was jumping and then doing a split in the air, then landing. I wasn't supposed to be doing this, because it was too advanced for me. But I had done it on the flour routine, so how hard could it be on the beam? I wanted to show my awesomeness off, anyway.







Jump! Splits! Land! HA! I could do it perfectly!




 However, I landed kind of funny. Uh oh.






I landed to the ground with a thud. All of the sudden, I heard someone let out an air-piercing scream. Then, I realized it was me. Grasping my ankle, I let out a groan of agony. I could barely whisper for my mom. Luckily, she was in there the time I fell, and called 911 right away. 







As I laid in the ambulance, I began to regret showing off.....














Two hours later, I was back home again. I had a cast and crutches. It was kind of hard to walk in them, but I managed.







As I limped past the beam with my crutches, I knew I wouldn't be showing off for a long, long time. 

And I hope YOU never will! I learned my lesson, alright....6 weeks in a cast! I'm going to miss out on practice terribly. :(

NEVER show off, my fellow dollies and their mommies! You will regret it!
