From beautiful to therapeutic to frivolous fun, dollhouses appeal to the voyeur in all of us -- even noted sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer, who still plays with dollhouses. And they have a special appeal to her that stretches back to Nazi Germany.

Chip Reid reports on an exhibition at the National Building Museum in Washington, where miniature houses make a big impression.

Manhattan Dollhouse

Finally, affordable real estate in the city! Young architects and designers in the making will be wowed by the dozens of Architectural Digest-worthy houses that pack this quaint, 30-year-old Murray Hill Store. Here, dollhouse kits, as well as preassembled minimansions, dolls and dollhouse components (i.e. moldings, windows and furniture), are sold to novice and accomplished dollhouse builders alike. Tots crowd the aisles to gape at the teeny dining rooms and impressively well-stocked kitchens and discuss what color they want to paint their own prospective homes.

Owner Edwin Jacobowitz prides himself on his personal service, and you’ll often see him offering help in choosing among the store’s 300 wallpapers or building a Classic Colonial from a $250.00 kit. Doll up your house with any of the sort of hundreds of accessories, including ice-cream makers ($5), rug beaters ($3.50) and Kingsford charcoal briquettes ($6). Just remind your curious tykes that there’s a no-touching rule here, and keep an eye on roving hands.”
