Four Fun Ways Dolls Can Enrich Your Child’s Life

Help Children to Learn Manners

Host a doll’s tea party and encourage your child to use “please”, “thank you” and “excuse me” while talking to her guests. Want your little boy to be more polite? Ask his doll to use the magic words and let him be responsible to ensure that the doll does so. You’ll be surprised at how quickly he’ll start using “pleases” and “thank yous” himself.

Soothe Fears and Anxieties

Dolls have the knack of being a child’s best friend, companion and confidante. If your child is scared about starting school, you can get him a special doll for school. {Check out our My Pal Doll for School}. Night-time fears can be soothed away by letting your child snuggle up with his favorite doll at bedtime.

Reinforce Learning

I remember as a child, my sisters and I would hold class for our dolls and repeat everything that we learnt that day at school. It was so much fun and while we didn’t realize it then, it helped reinforce our own learning in the easiest way possible. Today, I see my daughter do the same thing with her My Pal for Going Green doll!

Encourage Nurturing and Loving Behaviour in Children

Dolls are a wonderful way of encouraging children to be kind, loving and compassionate. Let your child “adopt” a doll and take care of him as you do. You can help a child be more compassionate towards a friend or a sibling with disabilities by getting him a doll, like the My Sibling Dolls, and inspiring him to be more understanding.

Does your child play with dolls? How do they enrich his life?
