LorettaRose, LLC toy company recently made a special My Pal® Zoroastrian doll dressed in 18 inch doll clothes, every purchase of which will yield a $5 donation to the Zoroastrian Association of Greater New York (ZAGNY).

Have a fashion show.
Acting out a fashion show isn’t just a girl-thing anymore. Some stores, like My Siblings Dolls, sell a pair of girl and boy dolls with a slew of choices for smartly designed 18 inch doll clothes and accessories. The siblings are sure to have fun changing their toys’ clothes.
While many parents will like their kids to be close in age, responsible family planning doesn’t make this possible at times. As such, one child might have started attending school already, while the other is still too young and has to stay home. This shouldn’t be an issue with siblings, and the older one can give the younger one an idea of how school is like through dolls. In cases where another child in school or at home has a learning disability, like autism, for instance, parents can buy dolls that come with a special booklet that unwittingly teaches children about compassion for their differently abled peers.
The researchers determined the results of the experiment with the help of a state-of-the-art eye tracker which recorded the babies’gaze upon the items. Interestingly enough, results showed that the infants—boys and girls alike—held a longer gaze when the dolls were placed in front of them, as opposed to the cars.
One of the topics focused on was the male infants’preference for boy dolls over mechanical toys, which defied sex-related preference for toys. Admittedly, further research needs to be done to determine what causes the gender switch in older children, specifically those older than five months up to three years of age. Other scientific studies suggest that physiological changes (hormones) play a big role in the switch of preference not only for toys but also for other objects.
