My daughter turned 2 years old this week and leading up to her birthday, I looked all over for a doll house. Most are geared for 3 year olds. I didn’t want to get her something too simple that she’d grow out of soon and then feel the need to replace it with a more sophisticated one later.
So here’s what I did instead!
I bought this Plan Toys Modern Furniture Set, which is made from all natural organic recycled rubber wood, but left out a few pieces in the doll house due to its size. My thinking is that these pieces are ones that a child of any age would enjoy playing with. There’s two additional sets pictured – the Plan Toys Doll House Nursery and the Plan Toys City Casual Family of Four.
The house itself? Well it’s pretty “green” too since it’s from a recycled box. If there comes a point later on where she wants an actual doll house, I didn’t add a simpler one to a land fill and saved some money along the way. I’m really hoping Green Girl lives up to her name and continues to like this one though!
I know all of you have great imaginations! What have you recycled into toys for your little ones?
