Playing House With Dolls

Dana and Kelsey Play House with Our Generation Dolls

Dana and Kelsey sit on the floor with their new dolls from Christmas.  Kelsey brushes her dolls hair so that it is nice and smooth, while Dana dances her doll around.  Dana suddenly turns to Kelsey with her eyes wide, "You know what would be really fun?" she asks.

"What?", Kelsey replies, giving Dana a perplexed look.

"We should build a house for our dolls!", Dana excitedly exclaims.

"That is a great idea!" Kelsey agrees. "I'll go get the blocks."  Kelsey runs upstairs to the toy room.  She trudges down the stairs with a huge barrel of blocks, dumping them at Dana's feet as she gets close to her.

"Let's get started," Kelsey smiles as she picks up a few of the blocks.  "I'll build the bottom layer and you can build the top," she tells Dana

Kelsey get the front of the house done, including a window and a silver front door.  Dana starts to put on a second level.  She has to be very careful.  If she doesn't balance the blocks just right, they will topple over and knock the whole house down.  She carefully adds more blocks to the top.

The front of the house is done, so Kelsey starts on the side.  She likes using all sorts of different blocks. "This is going to be one interesting looking house." she comments.

Dana smiles at her, but continues to concentrate on the roof of the house.

Pretty soon the bottom walls of the house are done.  Kelsey helps Dana with the upper level.  "I think I'll build a tower over here," Kelsey declares.  "That way our dolls can look out over the beautiful landscape"

"That's a good idea," agrees Dana.  "I think I'm almost finished with building the house.  Once you're done with the tower we can put our dolls in it."

Kelsey carefully balances the blocks to make the tower.  She is so excited to play with her doll in the house that she and Dana built.

Kelsey finishes the tower, steps back, and surveys the house that she and Dana built.  "Looks good," she says.  "Let's pretend that your doll lives here and my doll is coming to visit yours."

"Okay," Dana says as she grabs her doll.  "She is going to be waiting for you inside the house."  Dana puts her doll inside the house as Kelsey goes to the front of the house.  Her doll knocks on the front door.  In a high voice Dana asks, "Who is it?"

Kelsey responds, "It's Kendra.  I just moved in across the street."

"Hi! My name is Lana," Dana squeaks.

"Come on in.  I'll show you around." Dana says as she turns her doll around and walks her in through the door.  Kelsey follows her with her doll.

Dana's doll, Lana, shows Kelsey's doll, Kendra, the living room, with a couch that looks out the window, the bedroom area, and the upstairs tower.  "I'm going to stay down here and relax on the couch for a bit." Dana says in her Lana voice, as she walks Lana to the couch.

Dana sticks her hand through the window of the house to set Lana on the couch.  "Oh I love this house!" Dana exclaims in her high pitched Lana voice.

Kelsey puts Kendra up in the tower.  "I can see forever up here." she says for Kendra.  "I can see my house!"  Kelsey and Dana giggle.

They continue to play with their new house.  They peek trough the windows, sit on the couch, and climb to the tower.  As Dana is taking Lana out of the house she knocks one of the blocks down and a few more tumble down after it.  "Oh no!" Dana exclaims with a worried look.

Kelsey takes Kendra out of the tower, purposefully knocking a few of the blocks down as she does.  She looks at Dana with a mischievous grin.

Crash! Kelsey kicks the front of the house.  Dana laughs and knocks the roof of the second floor.

"The house is getting attacked by giants!" yells Dana in elation.  Kelsey and Dana make quick work of knocking down the rest of the house.  Laughing as they do it

"That was way too much fun!" laughs Kelsey.  "I'm not sure what was more fun; building the house or knocking it down."

"Knocking it down!" says Dana.

Kelsey smiles, "Yeah…knocking it down was awesome!  Well let's clean it up now."  Kelsey and Dana pick up all the blocks and put them back in the barrel.   They smiled the whole time that they were cleaning.  "We'll have to do this again sometime.  It was way too much fun!" Kelsey says.
