I know that when you hear about dollhouses you first think about toys for young girls. The truth is that there is a lot more to dollhouses than toys. Since their invention in 17th century Germany, the miniature houses have become the love interest of many children and adults collectors. Many have created large collections of dollhouses that are worth a considerable amount of money.

In the early days, handmade dollhouses were the toys of wealthy children. It was not until the 20th century and the introduction of cheap manufacturing material such as plastic that this toy became mainstream. Today you can find a large variety of dollhouses from relatively simple to very complex that are purchased to be admired than played with.

If you are looking for a great hobby that is something other than collecting stamps then consider becoming an antique dollhouse collector. You will be very surprised how intricate and interesting the history of this toy is.
