Play House

Your child will be delighted when he discovers that he has a Play House! This small structure can be a real house or a plastic kit. Depending on the age of your child, you can choose between a deluxe house, a classic doll house, or something in between. This will keep your child occupied for hours! If you’re in the market for a new playhouse for your child, consider getting one that is designed with safety in mind.

The Step2 playhouse is an affordable option, made of weatherproof plastic and measuring 4.5 feet by four feet, which is a perfect size for a young child. It’s easy to put together, even if you’re not handy with DIY projects. This playhouse also features a slide, bridge, and tunnel. Inside, your child can play in the playhouse’s two separate sections. If you’re worried about safety, you can purchase a separate playhouse for your child and attach a roof.

Toys and props should not overpower your child. Young children prefer to play with their favorite figurines or dolls. Set out a few pieces of furniture and other props to stimulate their imagination. There’s no need to match the dolls or figurines to create a realistic scene; just make sure that your child has a good choice of dolls. Don’t worry if your child doesn’t like a particular toy – the important thing is that he or she has an opportunity to explore his or her surroundings and use his or her creativity.

As a life coach and licensed psychologist, Dr. Wyatt Fisher says that couples playing house is healthy. “Playing house is a normal stage of the relationship and helps you grow closer to each other.”

The Play House complex opened in 1983 on East 86th Street and Carnegie Avenue. The building included an old Sears store and a new structure designed by Philip Johnson. The theater itself seats 550 people. Playhouse was also home to the Great Lakes Theater Festival until 2009.
