Small Wonders Spooky Suite Wooden Doll's House £48 @ Very

24 August 2015

Spooky House

I don't know about you, but I have had tears over Christmas presents a couple of times. It wasn't from the children. I was the one sobbing over whether or not I could afford to give my boys a decent Christmas. No parent wants to see a disappointed face on that special day, so that's why it's vital to plan ahead if money is tight. Get that BIG present out of the way now and save £££'s with this Small Wonders Spooky Suite Wooden Doll's House from Very. It was selling at £100 and is now reduced to just £48. That's a super saving of £56!

The Small Wonders Spooky Suite Wooden Doll's House has piqued my interest as it's got the traditional element from being made of wood. However, it's a modern 'Gothic' themed toy. I am liking that fusion, and it's certainly different from a lot of the sickly sweet pink editions you see in toy stores.

It has three storeys and even has LED light detailing. You also get a ten piece furniture set, a plastic ladder, two glow-in-the-dark corners and 100 glow in the dark stars.

You can pick up your order for FREE from a local participating shop when you opt for Collect+, or pay £3.99 to have it delivered to your front door.

    While I understand that pink and more pink can put you off as I'd much rather the neutral theme for all toys just the way it was when we were growing up, I don't get the fascination with the spooky dark world we' re encouraging our kids into. It seems to be a subtly growing market with kids growing up with a comfortable idea of things we'd consider 'evil' when we were growing up... remember Snow White's evil step mother? Are we creating a grey area between good and evil making the ground too familiar for little ones who should be enjoying happy things and learning fundamentals like kindness, compassion, understanding, helpfulness etc., along with the definitions of right and wrong, that will be a foundation they carry with them... after all, they'll have all their grown up years to experience the wickedness in the world won't they? And hopefully they'll use good sense rather than evil for evil!

    Thanks for replying! I don't suppose I have ever looked at the 'spooky' toy market as a dark side but I can see your point. Personally, I think it's a toy market phase and something else will soon become cool for a while. Thanks for getting in touch, you put across a very interesting viewpoint. :D
