I'm thinking of getting my 2yr old a dolls house for Christmas, she'll be 2 yrs 8 months by then. I like to plan early, and probably lay by it, so I don't have to store it in my house for months!
I WAS going to get her a Le Toy Van house or a Plan house and dolls (wooden with wool hair) but then I saw the Lundby stuff at a shop yesterday. I'm in love! So much detail, tiny clocks, and lights and tiny bits and pieces. The site says suitable from 3yrs, but with so many little bits I'm worried she'll break/eat/lose a lot of them really quickly.
The Lundby is pretty pricey, but would last a lot longer IF she plays with it enough, but I can't see my inlaws paying $50 for a room of furniture for it as a gift (thought it would solve the eternal"What do we get her" questions each year for a while).
I'm also not sure how sturdy the houses are for a not quite 3yr old.
Am I better off getting a sturdy wooden one (I LIKE wood) to see how much she'd use it, then get a better one in a few years, or bite the bullet and go Lundby right from the start?
I am dying to get a dolls house I can play with and make stuff for!
I don't like the Plan house as much, it's not what I envisioned getting for her, though I hear they are excellent quality.
