I don’t know about you, but my favourite toys when I was little were my dolls and soft toys.
Children don’t seem to change on this point – they are always fond of dolls and soft toys. These are the toys they gain comfort from and are often their best friends and companions, especially for little children. Even adults find the right one cute and an acceptable gift.
If you know anything about us at The Toy Wagon, you’ll know that toys are not just for fun! Toys are so much more than that when they align with a child’s development. It would be easy to think that Dolls and Soft Toys fall into the “just a toy category”. But no, they are more than just lovely, cute, and cuddly, dolls and soft toys - they have a real role to play in your child’s development.
One of our favourite things about these sorts of toys is their ability to teach your child empathy and enhance their nurturing abilities. We always joke about giving a little one a doll now, could help with getting looked after better in our older years - haha!
But truthfully, these are helpful tools for parents and teachers raise children who are compassionate and sociable individuals which are only some of the admirable traits for our kids future happiness.
These toys are a great way for kids to create a whole new world where they can engage in pretend play where they can be who they want to be. When they play house, they learn to communicate as they create their own narratives with their dolls such as enjoying tea time, or playing mum and dad and taking their ‘baby’ out for a work. They display emotional exchanges with their peers learning how to comfort others and develop sympathy through their actions.
These toys really do help our littlest family members discover things about themselves like who they are and how they fit in.
They can also act as a great buddy for a child bringing comfort and consolation during their growing years. Our kids will have a lot to overcome as they grow up. A cuddly toy can bring comfort to a kid and can always be an enthusiastic playmate for them.
We invite you to explore our wonderful line of dolls and soft toys from our trusted brands and find a perfect buddy for your special little one.
