Are you considering getting your child a doll house for Christmas? Doll houses are great classic toys, but they can take up a lot of room and they aren't very adaptable to different types of play. 

Grimm's

So here's our suggestion: get a few carefully selected Grimm's pieces instead, and see where your child's imagination takes them! 

Grimm's

I snapped these pictures earlier today, using only three Grimm's pieces: the large 12-piece rainbow (we have it in regular and pastel), the rainbow semi circles (we also carry natural), and the natural building boards (the rainbow building boards are super versatile as well). Another Grimm's piece that would be a great addition to a modular doll house would be the large boxes. We don't have those at our home, but I'm sure they would be an easy addition to this set up and would be so great as "rooms." 

Grimm's rainbow

With just these three pieces, we made a house, a parking garage, a tent, a corral, and a few boats and slides. So fun!!

Grimm's building board

If you're considering buying a few pieces of Grimm's, just jump right in! They play really well with LEGO, Duplo, Playmobil, Calico Critters, Schleich, and a lot of other toys that you probably already own. 

Grimm's house

My five and seven year-old love small world play. I'd recommend this type of set up for ages four and up. 

Grimm's semi circles

We love using the semi circles as "water" or "grass." They are for so much more than stacking the rainbow! 

Grimm's building boards

The building boards are a little thicker than you might expect. It was really easy to set them up as a corral. 

Grimm's building boards

We absolutely love Playmobil at our house, and they fit right in with Grimm's. The scales go really well together. 

Are there any other Grimm's pieces that you love for creating "doll house" type environments? Tell us!

Love,

Suzanne
