Benefits of doll play
Doll play involves children pretending that their doll is real and re-enacting or creating scenes and scenarios they’ve observed or imagined. It can be as little as ‘feeding’ a doll or wrapping it in a blanket, to something more elaborate, like creating an entire storyline with multiple Barbie dolls as different characters. It offers many benefits by helping children develop a variety of physical and social skills.
Whether playing alone or with others, doll play has been shown to assist children in developing social-emotional skills (like empathy and care), flexible thinking, self-control, memory, speech and language skills, and fine motor skills as they learn to create new environments and share ideas and thoughts with others. For many children, playing with dolls is one of the best ways to learn numerous new skills and express their creativity and imagination.
Whether you’re looking for a plush doll perfect for infants and sleep, a lifelike doll or a whimsical one, enrich your child’s playtime with dolls from Myer.
