Win Doll's House Accessories

Win doll’s house accessories to improve play

Are you good at taking time to indulge in imaginative play with your children? Would you like to win doll’s house accessories?

I think it is important to do so as those sessions make for happy memories that last for years. I still remember playing shops with my mum back in the Seventies. I had a little cash register and we would take it in turns to be the customer or shopkeeper. I seem to remember her using egg boxes as some of the items you could buy. That shows that inventive parents don’t need to spend a whole lot of money to inject fun into their children’s lives. Of course, I learned a lot about adding things up when playing shop. I also remember us making a little house out a clothes horse. My Dad built me my own “kitchen” in the garden made out of paving slabs. It was my own little area and meant the world to me.

“Let’s pretend” opens up a world of possibilities and stimulates creativity. As parents, we can get in touch with our inner child and see stresses disappear as we give ourselves over to imaginative play. Vitally, it ensures we are spending quality time with our children.

My very favourite toy as a child was the doll’s house made by my Dad’s best friend. It had sliding doors and I imagined scenes similar to Downton Abbey taking place in it. I always did have delusions of grandeur!

The lovely people at Big Game Hunters recently sent my daughter a doll’s house family and furniture set. She loves them and has a whole scenario about an opera singing mother going on. Who am I to say the mother looks nothing like an opera singer to me? It makes absolute sense to her.

She commented:

“I like this set because it is so colourful. I like the way that there are moving parts. For example the skating board has real wheels, the drawers and oven open so you can put things in them.”

  1. I have 4 daughters and I KNOW my 4yr old would love this, she’s always creating imaginary families with her toys! I loved my doll house when I was growing up and would always be playing with it

  2. I was a weird kid, lol. My mum would give me a pile of change from her purse and I would imagine they were a king and queen and their entourage. I would polish all the coins with a cloth so they were shiny and they line them up in a parade.

  3. I have always loved dolls houses! I had a ‘Carolyn’s House’ when I was little and loved it! My two little girls received a dolls house for Christmas and love it too! This prize would be perfect for them thank you x

  6. Playing in our little den with a couple of rag dollies named Beet and Eid, my sister’s and I played for hours on end. In the winter we used to go up and play in the attic, carrying on where we left off – my dad still has one of the rag dolls to this day – only he calls he one eye Rosie.

  10. Using a skipping rope around the waist, either my sister or myself used to be the horse and the other would follow behind saying ” giddyup!”…

  11. I love imaginary play with my 2 granddaughters, we pull two chairs together and my granddaughters pretend they are in a bus and they can travel to the seaside, they pull out a blanket and have a picnic (they have arrived at their destination – the seaside) biscuits, crisps and lemonade go down a treat. They can move the chairs back to back – a small distance between them and throw the blanket over the chairs, now they have a tent. Back on the bus and its time to go home. It can be poring down outside but in their imagination they are having a wonderful day at the seaside.

  12. I loved playing horses with my best friend. All we needed was a skipping rope and a bike helmet. Rope around the waist and skipping along…no PS4’s around then!

  13. We would put plastic sheeting over our huge table and arrange paints on top of a large sheet of paper with potato cutouts next to each one. My brothers and I would love it! sadly, I don’t have a big table to do this with my son, but we compromise and use the floor instead. It’s great for bonding

  14. The dining room chairs and the big blankets and sheets to make a den in the front room when I was 6 or so years old, having my dolls all set up for a tea party, spent hours playing with my ‘friends’

  15. We used to tie a pillow to a piece of string and dangle it over the stirway banister and pretend we were playing Moonface and Silky from the Magic Faraway Tree. God knows how we didn’t end up injured dragging ourselves up and down on the rope.

  16. All my Teddy’s would come to life and we would have picnics in the garden, they were also great for playing doctors with

  20. Me and my daughter both love pretending to throw snowballs at each other and chase each other screaming “can’t catch me!” πŸ™‚

  21. My brother and I were promised a trip to the zoo which was then rescinded because of bad behaviour. I was pretty devastated because I was/am animal-mad, but because of that interest I had loads of soft toys so decided that my bedroom was a zoo and Sindy (who clearly had far better parents, in fact her parents might actually be mine because I was clearly adopted) would be given an exclusive visit.
    A few years ago there was an item on the news about ‘virtual’ holidays. A lady with ME was bed-bound but she and her mother ‘visited’ countries by sightseeing online, learning the language and cooking meals from the area etc (didn’t involve imagining being stuck in queues for hours at the airport!). So the value of imaginative play might last longer than childhood.

  22. I loved playing with my Sindy dolls in a dolls house that my dad built out of a bookcase! I could play for hours making up stories with the dolls & my 3 youngest daughters are just the same! My eldest daughter (now nearly 11 never even looked at her dolls LOL!)

  30. i lived on a street in quite a small village and we all went to the same school, so often all played together. we used to love making dens with the clothes maiden and having clubs ‘no boys allowed etc’ not a play park insight but lots of fields and trees to climb we used to beleive we were monkeys…

  31. My daughter went from an imaginary family of Julies to a whole imaginary class when she started school and re-enacted the school day when she got home, with her as the teacher
