Many little girls (and lets face it, big girls to) would love to get a doll house to furnish and to play with their dolls. They just have a lot of fun playing house with dolls and furniture they can move around to get different decor inn the house.
Building a doll house is really a fairly easy job,particularly if you start with a simple plan which is easy to follow. A doll house can be made from thin plywood, wall panelling, hardboard or even heavy cardboard.
I have seen really nice doll houses built from the heavy cardboard that TVs and stereo equipment come packed in. You can get any amount of this free from the dumpster at any electronics or furniture store.
It can be cut with a sharp utility knife so you don't even need much in the way of tools to do the job. with plywood or hardboard you will need a table saw or circular saw. Even a jig saw in fact will suffice.
You can find free plans for doll houses at our website. http://www.vintageplans.org
