More about Dolls' Houses
Dolls houses have been around for a very long time, it's even purported that they have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs! The history of dolls' houses is tied to that of the wealthy really until the early 20th Century. Early dolls' houses were built to show off wealth and status and were not considered toys, only slowly moving towards being children's toys. Then in the early part of the 20th Century, Queen Mary’s Dolls' House was built and the profile of dolls' houses shot up and they started to become collectors' pieces.
Today dolls' houses are popular across the whole world and loved by children and adults alike. The collectors' market is thriving as the dolls' house hobby picks up new fans and people design, create and develop their own miniature worlds. Children are spoilt with a wide range of choice from Cowboy themed dolls' houses to more traditional 3-storey designs.
Dolls' houses are also therapeutic and extremely relaxing. Your mind will wander off as you focus on the small, fine details in your dolls' house and you can spend hours day-dreaming about what you will do in your make believe mansion. They offer the mind a never ending play ground, you may think a dolls' house is finished, but truly, you can go on developing it and changing it for many years to come. If you get bored of one style, simply re-do it. The possibilities are endless. The only limit is your imagination.
