Many children spend hours playing with dollhouse toys, carefully arranging and dramatizing the scenarios. Not only are kids thrilled with it, but there are numerous educational benefits to playing with a miniature dollhouse:
1. Imaginative Play: Dolls promote imaginative play, which is important for children’s development. Adults often discount pretend play as it seems to have no purpose. However, it is a key component of learning for children of all ages. Research has found connections between imaginative play and cognition, social skills and language skills. This type of play allows children to practice their social skills, deal with any troubling or upsetting event, develop their conversational vocabularies, learn empathy and increase their creativity.
Some parents are troubled by pretending that children seem to reject the “real” world. However, a child who insists on being a superhero or a princess is not denying reality. For a child, it is an intricate experiment to discover the limits of imagination and reality, as well as explore how someone else might see, think and feel. The logical rules still apply and children often think of elaborate solutions to problems.
When children play together with dollhouse miniature toys, skills such as self-control, taking turns, sharing, listening and improvisation are further developed. Don’t assume that games are limited by sex. Both girls and boys enjoy playing with realistic figures and houses, as they reflect their own life experiences in the world.
2. History lesson: Miniature dollhouses often have a historical context, so each building, in addition to the accompanying dollhouse toys, portrays a particular moment. Dolls can wear appropriate clothing and use period furniture. It is an excellent way for children to learn about the past and how people lived. They can evoke a favorite historical event or a scene from a story. Alternatively, it is always possible to play indefinitely.
3. Coordination: Playing with a miniature dollhouse requires fine motor skills, the same ones that are important for writing, playing musical instruments and other life activities. Dressing up little dolls and organizing dollhouse toys also develops hand-eye coordination and encourages concentration.
4. Creativity: Dollhouse toys come in all possible shapes, from tiny stained glass and painted to cars. A miniature dollhouse might have an elegant garden, with a rocking horse in the nursery along with a dining table loaded with real dishes and intricate foods. Some children continue to make their own clothes or furnishings, further increasing their use of imagination, creativity, fine motor skills and concentration. They may decide to collect pieces and develop a rewarding hobby.
When playing with dollhouse miniature toys, younger children will only use a few figures and simple furniture and let their imaginations take care of the rest. Older children get excited about more detailed accessories and more realistic settings. As children grow, they appreciate the limitless possibilities offered by a miniature dollhouse with detailed and realistic toys and figurines.
