What actually is a doll's house or a doll's house?
The concept of a dollhouse is easy to explain. It's a mini version of an apartment or house inhabited not by real people but by dolls. Sometimes the doll's house is also referred to as a doll's house. If you live in southern Germany or Austria, you may have come across the term more often. But what is meant is the same in each case.
People had the idea of building a doll's house more than 500 years ago. Back then, however, it was not toy makers who made doll houses. This was done by talented craftsmen and artists. Of course that was very expensive. That's why a doll's house was not a toy at that time, but rather a luxury decorative item. Rich people had their real house built in mini form and could use it to entertain their guests.
In the past, doll houses were not toys, but works of art
There are even real gems among the dollhouses of yesteryear. Some of them can still be admired in the museum today. The Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg, for example, exhibits the Stromersche dollhouse. The little work of art is almost 400 years old and offers so many dollhouse accessories that you still pale with envy today. From horse stables to four-poster beds, you will find everything a doll's heart could have desired in the 17th century. You can see a picture of Stromer's dollhouse here.
Later, the dollhouse turned into a questionable educational toy
Doll houses grew in popularity and became popular as toys in the 19th century. Wealthy families could buy beautiful doll houses and lots of accessories as toys for their children. Because for the first time companies manufactured the products in series. But even for poor people, the toy was not out of reach. They often built themselves simple wooden doll houses or doll rooms.
Back then almost only girls were allowed to play with it. They should be prepared for their role as housewives. That's why there were whole doll's kitchens with all kinds of kitchen appliances early on. In this way, the little ladies were able to learn early on how to find their way around in the kitchen. Luckily, this perspective has gradually changed. Nowadays almost everyone knows that the dollhouse is a toy for both girls and boys.
A great educational toy for many different skills
Doll houses can be huge and beautiful. Other specimens are small and plain. However, this has no effect on the learning effect that you experience while playing. You can train the same skills with the XXL doll's house or the mini doll's room. Through the role-play you promote your social skills and stimulate your imagination. You have to be creative in furnishing and decorating. You'll also become more and more skilled at placing the dollhouse furniture.
