This is something we would have wanted as a child. The bookcase by ChildCraft does double duty as a dollhouse. The simple lines of the bookcase make it a nice storage piece for the nursery. When your child is older, remove the books and supplies and let her use it as a grand dollhouse. And just when you think she's outgrown dollhouses, you can remove the pitched roof and it converts to a bookcase suitable for an older child or young adult. It can accompany her off to college - from board books to text books. It's available in a maple or white finish and sells for about $250 here.
