The Advantages of Playing With Reborn Girls


Social-Emotional Skills.  Children use play to understand their world.  Doll play helps children: practice caring and nurturing (socio-emotional)re-enact interactions with their own caregivers, family, and friends (cognitive reframing) prepare for a sibling (rehearsal).  Irrespective of a child's gender, these abilities are valuable life lessons.  In carrying, holding, feeding, and rocking a baby doll, kids are practicing being loving to others.  They may be modeling how they recall being taken care of 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's children's way by practicing these events to comprehend and begin to create the world their own.  Play is also.  Doing this allows them to increase their understanding of the events.  They can also take on the opposite role, which allows 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 feeling of power and control.  This makes complete sense because children have very little control over their world (for some necessary and good reasons).  Giving a child the chance to have some power and control in play allows them to give it a go in a way.

Playing with baby dolls is also a excellent way for young children to prepare for the arrival of a sibling.  Parents can model ways to care and touch for an infant which could give the sib-to-be a taste of what they can expect.  Also, once the baby arrives, the can care for their own baby doll right alongside dad and mother.  This can be particularly helpful since it is quite normal (for obvious reasons) for the older sibling to never get as much attention once the baby arrives.  Being able to have their own activity -- but still feel connected to 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 very same scenarios with other stuffed toys or miniatures because they feel better connected to them or they need 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 need parents/caregivers to believe that just because a child does not play with baby dolls that they can not understand and practice 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 also have used dolls in therapy to help kids 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 steps taken during bath time, and then they can narrate the measures and relaxation the doll during"bath time" while playing out a simple or elaborate pretend narrative.  (A plastic Potato Head also works great with this experience.)  Parents have been so pleased when their kid finally agrees to get in the bath after practicing with the doll for weeks on end!Grooming & Hygiene: Dolls provide the perfect opportunity for practicing grooming and hygiene skills like brushing hair, brushing teeth, and washing hands.  Potty training: While I don't have a great deal of experience on this front (yet!)  While skills like 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 example:"Uh oh!  Baby has a wet diaper!

reborn dolls boy are a few of the toys that children have played .  Their use was documented around 100 AD in Greece.  There's very good reason for these toys to be long lasting through history.  They are a representation of the child and allow for a child.  Playing with dolls may provide growth for children, regardless of gender while gender roles dictate that dolls are a toy mainly for women.   Playing with dolls solidifies skills that are gained in a child's early developmental years.  When kids play home, they learn to communicate with one another and cooperate.  By taking good care of a doll, they learn how to take care of one another.Responsibility.  By learning social skills that are important at an early age, children are learning responsibility also.  They learn by playing with it how to take care of a doll.  Learning learn to care for their pets, or older siblings know how to care of the younger siblings.  Empathy & Compassion.Another significant social skill that children learn when playing with dolls is the way to process emotions such as empathy and compassion.  Exactly like caring for their doll teaches responsibility, it teaches them to empathize with people around them and allows them to develop into people.  Imagination.Dramatic play, the sort of play that happens when kids play with dolls, helps develop a child's imagination as they experience creative, imagined scenarios with their dolls and other kids.  Language.  Playing with their friends in addition to dolls, children run into situations that are new and special for their own games.  By filling it communicating between one another can strengthen their vocabulary.  By communicating in this way with their friends, children gain insight.


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 offers them opportunities to utilize and practice their speech and language skills.  Let's look at just some of the language concepts that a baby doll can help teach and encourage: Body Parts: Dolls are FANTASTIC for teaching various body parts: eyes, nose, mouth, ears, hands, fingers, tummy, feet, feet, knees, elbows, etc..  Yes, you can teach these with no baby doll but providing another chance to practice tagging this vocabulary can help to generalize the language to other people.  It helps to teach kids that"nose" not only refers to the item on their own face but to all faces.  Clothing Labels: Using the doll and its clothes, you are able to teach the names of clothing items like shirts, pants, shoes, socks, jammies, etc..   Basic Concepts: Use infant with other baby toys (bed, blankets) to teach some basic concepts like: prepositions (infant 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, thirsty, and much more.  For instance:"Is the baby hungry?   Answering"wh" questions: You can ask your child various questions to work on his understanding of those words while he performs.  "Where is baby?"  "Where is baby's nose/fingers/belly button?"  "What does the baby want to eat?"  "Why is the baby crying?"  Social/pragmatic abilities: Baby dolls can be a terrific tool to use to help teach proper social/pragmatic skills.  Children can take turns playing 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 amazing toy that we hope ALL kids .will have the chance to have and play during the toddler years.  This is because baby dolls are packed with potential.  Let's take a look!  Baby dolls provide kids a lot of opportunities for developing fine motor, their cognitive, and abilities.  Kids often find it easier to practice these skills on someone (or something) else until they can apply them to themselves.  And since girls develop not some of their fine motor and self-dressing skills later than boys, it's essential for them to be exposed to more opportunities for practice.  For instance: Dramatizing using a doll: Around two children begin to behave as if their doll can see and interact with them.  They may link several activities with the doll in sequence such as feeding the doll, bathing the doll, and then putting the doll to bed.


Removing clothes: Though some clothing items are easier to remove than others (like those baby socks that never remain on their little feet!) , kids often benefit from trying it out prior to doing this for themselves.  Taking clothing off is usually mastered prior to placing it on and involves removing things like hat, socks (pulling from the top instead of pulling on the feet ), shoes, top, using a pincer grasp to sew, pulling down pants, and unbuttoning huge buttons.   Some common clothing items children can practice on dolls and themselves 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 This ability is expected to emerge around a year and a half and will coincide with the development of skills like zipping/unzipping or holding .  Feeding: As children play skills develop, so do their self-feeding skills!  Playing with a baby doll gives them the chance to practice appropriately holding and using feeding items such as spoons, bottles, cups, forks, bowls, etc..
