The Advantages of Playing With real looking baby dolls


Social-Emotional Skills.  Children use play to understand their world.  Doll play helps kids: practice caring and nurturing (socio-emotional)re-enact interactions with their own caregivers, family members, and friends (cognitive reframing) prepare for a sibling (rehearsal).  Irrespective of a child's gender, these abilities are all valuable life lessons.   They may be mimicking how they recall being cared for as a kid, or how they see adults in their world caring for kids.  Just as children copy parents talking on the telephone, working in the kitchen, vacuuming, etc., doll play is no different.  It is children's way by practicing these events, to understand and begin to create the world their own.  Doll play is a way for children to things which have happened in their lives.  Doing this allows them to increase their understanding of the events.  They are also able to take on the opposite function, which enables them to see things from another's perspective (SUCH an important skill to get!) .  Many times children will enjoy taking on the adult role in order for them to feel a sense of control and power.  This makes complete sense because kids have very little control over their world (for some essential and very good reasons).  Giving a child the opportunity to have some control and power in play allows them to give it a go in a secure way.

Playing with Reborn Twins is also a excellent way for young children to prepare for the birth of a sibling.  Parents can model ways to touch and care for a baby which could give a taste of what they can expect to the sib-to-be.  When the baby arrives, the new big-sib can care for their own baby doll directly alongside dad and mom.  This can be particularly helpful since it is quite normal (for obvious reasons) for the older sibling to not get as much attention when the baby arrives.  Being able to have their own activity -- but still feel on the parent(s) and family -- can help a child ease into having an extra member in the household.  Some children will prefer to play out these same situations with other stuffed toys or miniatures because they feel better attached to them or they require the play to be more removed (less real to the actual situation) than playing with baby dolls.  I am mentioning this because I do not want parents/caregivers to think that because a child does not play with baby dolls they practice and can't understand these skills.  However, I do believe that infant dolls offer children something unique that other toys just can't do.

Bathing: Kids can practice giving their doll a bath (with pretend water if the doll is not permitted to get wet)!  This is wonderful for practicing sequencing skills (first fill up the tub, then put on shampoo, then rinse hair, etc.).  I have also used dolls in treatment to help children move past their fear of bathing with them help me give the doll a pretend bath using all the necessary supplies (so that they get used to the sensory experience from the water, shampoo, etc. and can have more control over the experience).  We talk about the supplies needed and the actions taken during bath time, and then they could narrate the steps and relaxation the doll during"bath time" while playing out a simple or elaborate pretend narrative.  (A plastic Potato Head also works great for this experience.)  Parents have been so pleased when their kid finally agrees to get in the bath after practicing with the doll for months on end!Grooming & Hygiene: Dolls supply the perfect opportunity for practicing grooming and hygiene skills such as brushing hair, brushing teeth, and washing hands.  Potty training: While I do not have a lot of experience on this front (yet!) , a kid with an active imagination can really benefit from using a doll to help with potty training.  While skills such as indicating discomfort over soiled pants and sitting on a potty seat with assistance are skills a child must develop in him or herself, they may be played out on the doll either from the caregiver or the child him/herself.  For instance:"Uh oh!  Baby has a wet diaper!  He feels yucky", or "Okay, Baby, time to sit on the potty!"


Dolls are some of the earliest toys that children have played with.  Their use was recorded around 100 AD in Greece.  There's very good reason for these toys to be so long lasting through history.  They are a representation of the child themselves, and allow for a child to acquire a greater understanding of these as well as those around them.  While gender roles dictate that dolls are a toy for girls, playing with dolls may provide significant growth.   Playing with dolls solidifies skills that are obtained in a child's early developmental years.  They learn to communicate with one another and cooperate when children play home.  By taking good care of a doll, they know how to take care of one another.Responsibility.  Children are learning responsibility by learning social skills that are important from an early age.  They learn by playing with it, how to look after a doll.  Learning this skill can help children learn to take care of their pets, or older siblings understand how to care of the younger siblings.  Empathy & Compassion.Another significant social skill that children learn when playing with dolls is how to process emotions such as empathy and compassion.  Just like caring for their doll teaches responsibility, it enables them to develop into people and teaches them to empathize with those around them.  Imagination.Dramatic play, the sort of play that occurs when kids play with dolls, helps develop a child's imagination as they encounter creative, imagined scenarios with their dolls and other children.  Language.  Playing with their friends in addition to dolls, children run for their own games into situations that are new and unique.  By filling it with language that is practical, communicating between one another can strengthen their vocabulary.  Children gain insight into home routines which may be different from their own, by communicating in this manner with their friends.


The baby doll is a toy that can really help open up and expand a child's pretend play.  Children learn a lot of language through their play and play provides them opportunities to use and practice their language and speech skills.  Let's look at just some of the language notions that a baby doll can help teach and support: Body Parts: Dolls are FANTASTIC for teaching different body parts: eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hands, fingers, tummy, feet, feet, knees, elbows, etc..  Yes, you can teach these without a baby doll but providing another chance to practice tagging this vocabulary can help to generalize the vocabulary to other men and women.  It helps to teach kids that"nose" not only refers to the thing in their face but to all faces.    Basic Concepts: Use infant with other baby toys (bed, blankets) to teach some basic concepts like: prepositions (baby in the bed, baby under the blanket), colors, and size concepts (using different sized dolls).  Verbs/Feelings: Use the baby with another baby toys (bottle, bed, clothing ) to teach verbs/feelings/etc.  Like: eat, drink, sleep, sit, stand, hungry, exhausted, hungry, and much more.  For instance:"Is the baby hungry?   Answering"wh" questions: You can ask your kid an array of questions to work on his understanding of these words while he performs.  "Where's baby?"  "Where is baby's nose/fingers/belly button?"  "What does the infant want to eat?"  "Why is the baby crying?"  Social/pragmatic skills: Baby dolls can be a terrific tool to use to help educate proper social/pragmatic skills.  Children can take turns playing with different dolls, and they are able to practice using language to ask questions about the dolls and what they're doing.

Why Kids Should Play with Baby Doll.  The baby doll is such a toy that is fantastic that we hope ALL children .will have the chance.  This is because baby dolls are packed with potential.  Let's take a look!  Baby dolls provide children a lot of opportunities for developing fine motor, their cognitive, and abilities.  Kids often find it much easier to practice these skills on someone (or something) else before they could apply them to themselves.  And since girls often develop not some of their fine motor and self-dressing skills than boys, it's important for them to be exposed to more opportunities for practice.  For example: Dramatizing with a doll: About two to three years old, children start to act like their doll can see and interact together.  They may link several actions with the doll in sequence such as feeding the doll, bathing the doll, and then putting the doll to bed.


Eliminating clothes: Although some clothing items are easier to remove than others (like those baby socks that never stay on their small feet!) , kids often gain from trying out it prior to doing so for themselves.  Taking clothes off is usually mastered before putting it on and includes removing items such as hat, socks (pulling from the top instead of pulling on the toes), shoes, top, using a pincer grip to sew, pulling down pants, and unbuttoning large buttons.  Putting on clothes: Getting clothing on can be tough and is typically MUCH easier when first practiced on a doll.  Some frequent clothing items children can practice on themselves and dolls comprise placing a hat on their head, zipping with some help, putting shoes on, pulling pants up, putting on a shirt, and buttoning huge buttons.  Using both hands in midline: This ability is expected to emerge around a year and a half and tends to coincide with the development of skills such as holding or zipping/unzipping .  Feeding: As children's pretend play skills grow, so do their abilities!  Playing with a baby doll gives them the opportunity to practice suitably holding and using feeding things like spoons, bottles, cups, forks, bowls, etc..
