For children, a door can be many things: Protection against the Big Bad Wolf or a howling blizzard. A welcoming entrance to a land where kids rule. A threshold they can control, welcoming friends and banishing enemies. Add in a few play accessories and the door often becomes a focal point of imaginative play.
The “who-goes-there” peephole is perfect for demanding a secret password or an oath or loyalty.
Dutch doors add versatility to children’s play. Open the top panel and you’re ready to open a drive-thru restaurant or a fortune telling business. Conversely, open the bottom panel and you’ve created a doggie door.
A “speaking tube” connects the indoors and outdoors in this play house, allowing you to communicate secretly with someone on the outside. A must-have for those under siege, trying to get a message across enemy lines!
Even the birdhouse needs a door, in this case a round one just the right size for a plump sparrow.
