Playing with dolls and play sets is an activity that nourishes child development far more than we give it credit for - for both girls AND boys. Here are 5 reasons why playing with dolls should be considered important for the growth of young boys and girls.
Children learn important social skills when they ‘play house’. They learn to talk to each other kindly and cooperate while they mime feeding their baby dinner and putting it to bed. Young children love to mimic the activity of everyday life. Given the opportunity, boys love to play house too - because ALL children love to copy real life and dolls and play sets allow children to mimic that.
Dramatic play develops children’s imagination, sense of responsibility and is one of the best examples of learning through play. Children also get to expand on a set of practical vocabulary words, and also practice empathy and seeing things from different perspectives.
