Choose the best baby for your "Loved" one.
When chosen correctly, a doll has the power to be a best friend, a source of comfort, and a way to develop character and show creativity. So how do you make sure that the doll you select will be all of those things and so much more?
You can start by choosing a doll appropriate to the little one's age. Every age group uses dolls in a different way, which means you probably shouldn’t buy the same doll for the 1-year-old and the 4-year-old in your life.
Here are some features to look at in a doll to find the right doll for the right age:
During their first year, babies don’t really have the motor and cognitive skills to gently cuddle or play pretend with a baby doll (at least until they get a lot closer to their first birthday).
However, they will absolutely love to look at and clutching baby dolls. It is therefore important to choose a baby doll that has defined, high-contrast features and a soft, squeezable body.
Once an infant transforms into a toddler (around age one), they will want to get as much cuddle time with their new doll as they can. When it comes to choosing a baby doll for this age group, again, the softer the better.
That said, You also need to make sure it is machine washable as the imagination of the toddler is limitless and who knows what they will do with it? Keep in mind that this age group is still susceptible to choking, so keep any small accessories far away!
By the age of two or three, your little ones are really starting to exercise their imaginations. They love playing mommy or daddy and treating their baby doll as if it was their own. Look for a doll that allows movement and promotes discovery, such as one that makes sounds, has a "heartbeat", can be fed or have its clothes changed.
And while very small items are still an issue, you can promote her creativity with sounds, some accessories for feeding, changing, and sleeping.
With independence and freedom taking center stage, dolls for the 4-6 year olds should be all about making the young girl’s dreams come true and being a great momma.
Grade School Girls
Once they have reached the age of seven, little girls do everything with their dolls. They become their best friends, and are always invited to sleepovers and tea parties.
Junior and Beyond Ages
While some girls have outgrown their dolls once they reach the double-digits, many of them just move up to more grown-up versions. Since responsibility and maturity are now present, this is the age to start giving collectible dolls that can be treasured for life.
Dolls are obviously much more than just a toy. They’re an precious piece of our child’s growing up, a connection between the child and the universe of grown-ups. Doll play helps children to investigate distinctive roles through nurturing and offering trusts, dreams and encounters with companion and friend that will always understand them.
Christmas is a time of great excitement and anticipation, especially for children.
