dollhouse

Dollhouses encourage make-believe--pretend play where girls imagine what daily routines happen in each room, what birthday and holidays celebrations take place, and what it takes to manage a household. This particular dollhouse was built in the 1950s by a Rochester fire fighter for his daughter. Years after his daughter had outgrown the dollhouse, his granddaughters imagined a whole new set of narratives about it.
