8841159115282Hape’s new DIY dollhouse is a dream come true for little interior decorators! With three floors of moveable props as well as wall accessories, this house can be transformed and re-invented for play over and over again. Bright contemporary wallpaper distinguishes the rooms and invites kids to add their personal touches. Empty frames in different sizes can be filled with personalized drawings or photographs and even a TV show for the family room. Want to move a wall lamp, shower, mirror, sink, or wall clock? Just pull it off the magnetized wall and place it in its new spot. My family of three sisters got right to work (play) as they grabbed a figure and started their story, “Mine’s going to get something to eat!” “Wait for me,” as she joined her sister in the elevator and “My girl is going to take a shower.”A favorite feature is the clear elevator that takes the housemates up to each floor. My 9 year-old friend commented, “That’s a pulley “ as she recognized the rope system for moving the elevator. Who knew a little engineering lesson was embedded in this dollhouse? My friends were so disappointed when it was time to go as one said, “When I grow up, I want to live in a house just like this–it’s modern!”
