Avery important skill that toddlers need to develop is empathy. A great toy to help nurture that skill? A baby doll! Giving your child a baby doll not only nurtures the empathy skill, but also allows your child to begin pretend play. In other words, baby dolls are important for both boys AND girls! Your child’s toddler years are the perfect time to start working on these skills needed to help them become caring and compassionate as they get older. There’s no better way for your child to learn these things than by playing with a toy that encourages empathy and pretend play. After all, children do a majority of their learning through play!
