just about every house you visit in the country (and actually some in the city) have these wonderful playhouses for kids...my kids spent hours playing! it's the whole make-believe thing that is really wonderful! we are going to build one as soon as we can...these houses are usually delightfully simple and consist of a kitchen, dining table and that's about it! but it's their very own world and from time to time I stopped in for tea! (but usually I wasn't really allowed)
