Welcome to the dollhouse of your dreams! You’ve got four amiable roommates who all share one stylish wardrobe and go shopping together at the farmer’s market every weekend, always coming home with ingredients to make a flaky fruit pie. Or occasionally, a buttermilk chess pie.
Your new digs consist of patterns and prettiness everywhere you look, with adorable surprises under every flap. You’re dreaming…or are you? This lovely plush dollhouse will have little ones happily immersed in its imaginary world. It’s a great tool for pretend play that’s portable, carried from room to room in the house and toted out and about during mornings at the café with mom or on long road trips in the car.
What stories will your little one come up with about the girls who call this unbelievable dollhouse their home? Here’s the beginning of a story told by Avery.
Lulu and Her Teddy Bear (She named the doll with pink hair “Lulu.”)
“Lulu wanted to make a pie once. And eat it with her teddy bear with some tea. She had to get the ingredients that she needed to make a pie. It was going to be a apple pie. So she got the apples and then she had all the ingredients at home in the pantry that she buyed a long time ago. She always wanted to make a apple pie…”
Anyone want to imagine what happened next? Let’s just say it was a happy ending.
Thank you to The Land of Nod for sending us the dollhouse for this post.
