(Calico Critters $34.99)

 

Looking for a beginner’s doll house? This is truly a starter house that can be added to over time. A mighty small but charming little house with a front yard or upstairs floor comes with ten pieces of furniture and Bell Hopscotch Rabbit, a motherly looking bunny. It’s part of system with connectable sections that can grow into a mini-mansion. Put it on top of the Brick Oven Bakery or add it to the Luxury Townhouse. The Calico Critters products have been around for years with the many animal families, furnishings, vehicles and other settings. Enjoyed by boys as well as girls, the animal families and settings provide a storybook-like way to encourage imaginative pretend play that is child centered and not pre-made. We suggest you look at the settings available and decide for yourself if you want to start this small or begin with a slightly more elaborate setting. Note: the detailed accessories are very small and are appropriate for children who are well past the mouthing stage and have the dexterity to handle them. Marked for 3 and up. 

SNAP: This mini setting can fit on a wheelchair tray or tabletop. It is solid and somewhat heavy, so we suggest velcro on the table and toy to secure it. That said, this is a charming setting for storytelling, knowing and naming, and child-centered pretend play.
