9th March 2018
A new survey by conducted by home developer, Strata, which quizzed over 2,000 children aged 3-11, has revealed some amazing ideas.
Strata asked the participants to describe their perfect home with no restrictions on creativity and imagination (One practical child wanted 12 toilets so he never had to queue - so you get the level of thought put into this).
Top 10 kid’s dream home features:
1. Magic homework room that does the work for you
2. Water slide staircase so you never have to walk
3. Dinosaur park with its very own scientist
4. Trampoline floors to bounce from room-to-room
5. House robot
6. Sausage-llama as a pet
7. Christmas market all year round
8. Petting zoo where David Attenborough works
9. Shark tank
10. Twelve toilets so no-one ever has to queue
Living inside Disneyland is also a dream for most, just as long as all the characters are there and the rides are free.
Almost 60% of children wanted to replace traditional kitchens with a sweet shop and ice cream parlour, where they’d have unlimited access to sugary treats.
One in four want a water park in their garden, closely followed by a zoo filled with exotic animals.
If not Disneyland, girls want to live in a beautiful castle at the top of a hill, with almost one third (32%) dreaming of this, whereas boys prefer the thought of living in a super-cool treehouse.
When it comes to materials, boys want their treehouse to be made from multi-coloured building blocks, whilst girls dream of edible chocolate walls covered in glitter and rainbows.
If homes had special powers, most children want their home to fly and teleport anywhere in the world in a single second. Invisibility and time travel were also top choices for one in every five.
When given the chance to invite their favourite people and characters to live with them, The Minions came out on top with over one third of children wanted to live with the little yellow friends.
