I recently came across an article on one of my favorite blogs, Sociological Images, called "The Gender Politics of the Dollhouse" by Lisa Wade, PhD. In her article, Wade analyzes this ancient toy in its various forms. Reading the article prompted me to think about my own experience with dollhouses growing up. I was never a "girly-girl," but I did enjoy "playing house" when I was little. I had one of those kid kitchens that I spent hours making pretend grilled cheese for my older brother and I. It seemed only natural that this type of "playing house" would transform into playing house-in-a-dollhouse (deep, I know).
