Default Top coat

Morning all,

I have almost finished painting my daughters doll house (can't believe how long it takes phew). I used an undercoat and then standard matt paint (a few layers). As im sure you can imagine this house will be played with a lot as my daughter is 4, she loves playing with doll houses wherever we go so I'm sure it is going to be a hit I am after advice as to how to avoid the paint getting scratched and chipped? Is there a top coat or clear finish that you can recommend to me please, I would be devasted to see my hard work ruined on Christmas day

Thanks, your help is appreciated x

I've tried googling some paint type finishes but haven't really found anything. Perhaps you could consider sticky back plastic - the transparent type? I've never tried it myself but if you were careful to avoid bubbles etc while applying it then it could look really good.And it would be a completely washable solution for grubby little hands!
