Many of us in the reborn and reborn-like doll community know that our reborn baby dolls can bring joy and value to the lonely elderly, people who have lost a child or those suffering from dementia. What people may not know is many of our dolls are also beneficial for children. Here are the top 5 reasons every child (yes dolls are for boys too!) should have a doll growing up.
Reason 1: Dolls can be educational for children.
When kids play with dolls, they learn caring and nurturing skills.
Reason 2: It’s a bonding opportunity.
Whether it’s their grandmother, aunt or anyone else in their life who likes dolls, if a child also plays with a doll, it’s something two people can bond over!
Reason 3: They are just fun!
Pretend play, especially with dolls, enriches children’s lives and is a bright spot in their day!
Reason 4: Does your child have a sibling on the way?
Having a doll can help them learn how to change a baby diaper or how to sooth a crying baby.
Reason 5: Develop Your Kids Skills.
Whether children are putting their doll in a cradle, dressing them up in a new outfit or pushing them in a stroller, playing with a doll can help develop kids gross motor skills.
