GIFT GUIDE: THE BEST DOLL HOUSE ideas FOR CHRISTMAS 2021

Get the perfect doll house as a Christmas present this year for your little doll house lover. These 5 wooden dollhouses take the cake.

So what makes a great Christmas present? Doll houses make an excellent present because they spark imagination and creativity which is exactly what kids love!

When you think about the best things in life, often times that list will include some of those childhood memories that sparked a lifelong interest. One memory that stands out from my early childhood was the year I received a doll house as a gift.

The first doll house I remember was a vintage 1990’s Little Tikes dollhouse- you know the one- brightly colored plastic with stairs, a red car, carport and swing, a blue roof. The set came with all of the family members, dad, mom, boy, girl and a baby (maybe 2?).

The deck pulled out and there was a sticker “rug” in the upstairs hallway which divided the two sides of the house. I have many, many memories of playing with this dollhouse day in and day out. Have the memories of your dollhouse come flooding back?

The next dollhouse was a very vintage wooden 3 story dollhouse that was passed down from family. I had lots of handmade wooden furniture, chairs made of coiled beer cans and upholstered by hand with pink velvet fabric. Maybe that’s where my love of pink textiles started.

Not an exact match, but this dollhouse is similar to the one I had as a child.

WHAT IS THE BEST CHRISTMAS GIFT?

While maybe not ranked number 1 (that would be a puppy) it is safe to say that opening up a doll house on Christmas morning and spreading all the furniture across the living room floor, this toy wins year over year.

On a side note, we went the puppy route last year and we now have a 11 month old black standard poodle named BASH.

I’ve admitted the puppy is likely the number one gift of all time, although they are a lot of work, so maybe not, ha! But we also know that doll houses can come in as a close second and also provide years of creativity and independent play for little ones.

We’ve searched high and low for the best wooden doll houses and these 5 dollhouses take the cake for being classy and timeless. There’s no cheap plastic parts here!

Classic Doll House from Amazon

This first doll house on the list is from Amazon. Sometimes convenience takes precedence, so if you are looking for a quick shipping gift, Amazon wins.

For this one, we like that it is wooden and not plastic. It has 3 stories which in my opinion is a must. You have to be able to decorate that attic room – it’s classic Victorian dollhouse detail.

The walls are printed images that have wallpaper, paint and windows/background scenes. There are a few small furniture piece in the doll house, but you can certainly add more or re-wallpaper with your own printed patterned paper.

This is a great entry level, entry price point doll house at $149 on Amazon.

Tree House Doll house from Crate & Kids

Next on our list is this wooden tree house doll house from Crate and Barrel’s kids line, Crate and Kids. I’ve seen plastic tree house toys before, but this wooden take on treehouse meets doll house is new to me, and that’s why I like it so much.

It comes in at a whopping 25″ tall, a little over 2 feet, which is a good size to be able to walk the little woodland critters around the house. It includes tree like branches under the house, an attic and stairs as well as a tree swing- all of the things I want in my own home!

You can purchase the set of little woodland friends separately or play with your own doll house figures in this treehouse combo.

Wooden Blue Dollhouse

This adorable blue roofed, wooden dollhouse is probably my favorite on the list. It’s large with six rooms (including the attic) waiting to be filled with furniture and little people and imaginative play.

I’m listing it in the three places it is sold, because it is selling out fast in each store and it’s only October!

Build Your Own Victorian Dollhouse

The Build Your Own victorian dollhouse is not for the faint of heart- it is just that- a blank house wherein you get to enjoy crafting the molding, trim, windows and door. While it is recommended for aged 3+, I know my 4 year old wouldn’t have the patience to build it.

So for this one, if your kids are really young, perhaps you build it before it goes under the Christmas tree.

If you’re looking for the dollhouse of your dreams, look no further. Because our Victorian Dollhouse is like no other playtime abode you’ve ever seen. With three floors (including an attic), front doors, and even windows that open and close, this detail-rich dollhouse requires nothing more than pure imagination.
