Wow! The double houses is loaded with play opportunities that will immediately attract children and adults alike, and will keep the play going for more fun and greater developmental benefits. This incredible social space encourages graduated social play. The rich opportunities for children to play side by side and together: porch, bench and table, will help them develop friendships and empathy. The many manipulatable features of the house will spark explorative play amongst the children. The doorbell is a sphere that makes a rattling sound when run in. Its groove. This is fascinating and spurs dramatic play, which again supports language development. The small mirror is a hit and supports self awareness in young children. The house theme has the advantage of uniting even very young children in dramatic and social play.
