The Dollís house represents this concept of a perfect family home. Dollís houses were originally used for instructional purposes to teach young girls how they should keep their homes. The house represents the ideal that we all strive to achieve. The scale used is deliberate, with scale, humans can exercise control over objects and visualise much larger intended objects. Doll houses are also a key, and very telling, tool in aspects of play therapy.
