Boys doll houses
The word "doll", unfortunately, has taken on some connotations that we don't find befitting of its purpose. Too often, a doll is something exclusively used by a girl and the name "action figure" is bestowed upon any figurine designed for a boy, irrespective of the doll's bicep girth or the presence of weaponry. Here we will discuss various abodes in which a boy may enjoy himself with a doll, whether it sports a sweater or a bandolier.
Dollhouses are great for boys
While we can't get into the details of the sometimes polemic issue of gender in children, and we certainly don't want to give advice on how to raise children, we are in the position to say doll houses are fun for all children! Inevitably, your son will end up playing with a dollhouse at some friend's house or at school, and whether it is unisex or designed for girls, a good time will be had by all.
An important thing to remember is that children really have no concept of what's "normal." Anything that encourages cooperative play among the kids, at any age, fosters creativity, friendships, problem solving, and sharing. Now we know that eventually the young boys will recognize they aren't getting any respect around the playground for preening a doll's hair (boys will be boys), but until then, what's the harm?
The action figure city doll house
If you aren't all that interested in pitching to your son the idea of a cooperative doll house to be shared with the girls, perhaps this idea is more up his alley. A three-tiered city set mimics the construction and function of a doll house but instead features gritty, tough scenes of subways, underground paths, and street-level urbanity. Perhaps plundering ships on the high seas or defending a castle against advancing enemy action figures is more his cup of joe. Any number of scenarios can be played out in environments like these, and cooperative play with the neighborhood boys is sure to pass the hours and create lasting friendships. Plus, if the previous examples suggest the boys can play on traditional doll houses, there's no reason the little ladies can't enjoy themselves sharing in the capers here.
