The Role of Toys as Imagination Boosters for Kids

She may be a mighty queen today and a fearless firefighter tomorrow. He may be a doctor, a painter, and a zookeeper all in the span of one afternoon. Children love to create and play inside their own fantasy worlds, a process that contributes greatly to the development of their creativity.

As parents, it is part of your delightful job to provide your little ones with toys and educational materials which will stimulate their imagination actively and safely. For example, toys such as wooden blocks let them build things, while stuffed animals have long been part of story time casts.

American Boy Dolls Teach Autism Understanding

Autism can be a difficult condition for people to understand. While compassion should be shown to those who have the disability, compassion for autism is something that doesn’t naturally occur to many kids, even though the condition itself is a lot more prevalent than most people think.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 out of 68 babies in the U.S. are born with a condition that falls under the autism spectrum. This represents a 119.4 percent increase from 1 out of 150 births in 2000, which makes autism the fastest-growing developmental disability in the country. These facts highlight the need for parents to be more proactive in guiding their children accordingly. To help with this, several toy makers create boy dolls specifically designed to promote autism awareness among children.

Playtime with 18 inch Doll: Imaginative Ideas for Girl and Boy Siblings

Have a fashion show. Acting out a fashion show isn’t just a girl-thing anymore. Some stores, like My Siblings Dolls, sell a pair of girl and boy dolls with a slew of choices for smartly designed 18 inch doll clothes and accessories. The siblings are sure to have fun changing their toys’ clothes. Go educational. While many parents will like their kids to be close in age, responsible family planning doesn’t make this possible at times. As such, one child might have started attending school already, while the other is still too young and has to stay home. This shouldn’t be an issue with siblings, and the older one can give the younger one an idea of how school is like through dolls. In cases where another child in school or at home has a learning disability, like autism, for instance, parents can buy dolls that come with a special booklet that unwittingly teaches children about compassion for their differently abled peers.

Dolls for Boys: It Is Perfectly Normal.

The researchers determined the results of the experiment with the help of a state-of-the-art eye tracker which recorded the babies’gaze upon the items. Interestingly enough, results showed that the infants—boys and girls alike—held a longer gaze when the dolls were placed in front of them, as opposed to the cars. One of the topics focused on was the male infants’preference for boy dolls over mechanical toys, which defied sex-related preference for toys. Admittedly, further research needs to be done to determine what causes the gender switch in older children, specifically those older than five months up to three years of age. Other scientific studies suggest that physiological changes (hormones) play a big role in the switch of preference not only for toys but also for other objects.

There’s Nothing Wrong with Boys Playing with Dolls

As you may very well know by now, the best way for children to learn is through play. In that sense, there’s really no point in making toys gender-specific—girls can play with cars and boys can play with dolls, and both of them can learn real life lessons from the experience. After all, what’s wrong with portraying little boys as nurturers? If you’re raising a son, wouldn’t it melt your heart if he wanted to take care of a baby doll, knowing that it could potentially make him a great dad one day?

Dolls and the Disabled Child: Best Friends

Children with disabilities don’t always find themselves with a plethora of friends. As a matter of fact, studies show that the disabilities they are suffering could even hamper their interaction with their brothers or sisters, much less their friends. This, in turn, leads to problems in socialization even as the child grows up.

Dolls for Understanding a Disabled Sibling

It is unfortunate that not all children are born normal; some have certain disabilities. What makes their situation worse is that their disabilities tend to deprive them of a healthy social life. Studies show that parents of children with disability want their child to be socially well-adjusted. The problem is they don’t know how to make it happen.

Tips to Keep a Doll Collection Looking Brand New

More often than not, people purchase dolls so that their children have something to play with. For others, however, 18-inch dolls are valuable collectors’ items. If you fall in the latter category, you definitely want to keep your dolls in mint condition. This is a simple enough task if you follow the following tips:

Lose the Tan

Are you the type of person that likes to display his or her collection? If so, make sure you display your dolls away from sunlight. Direct sunlight is a doll’s worst enemy, as natural lights easily fade the color of a doll’s skin, hair, and clothes. The worst part is that the discoloration is uneven, making it difficult to repair.

Be aware of how the sun changes its movement patterns as the seasons change. If this proves difficult, you can always add treatments to your windows to keep your display area shaded at all times.

Smoke Outside

Cigarette smoke tends to cling onto a lot of fabrics, but doll clothes fabrics absorb the smell like nothing else. Removing the smell of smoke from dolls is very difficult, even for professionals. If you or a loved one smokes, do so outside your home.

Room Temperature

Take care to store your dolls in places where the temperature is regulated, especially if they are made of vinyl and other types of plastic. Very cold temperatures can lead to cracks along the body of your doll, while very warm temperatures can warp and discolor the body.

Repairing Doll Clothes 101

So you just bought a special 18 inch doll for your child. Along with customized accessories and clothes, your little one is sure to have tons of fun with his or her new pal. Hours of outdoor play, however, can take its toll on the doll’s clothes, resulting in torn seams or loose buttons. Before long, your child would come up to you, doll in hand, and request you to fix his or her buddy’s garb. Here are a few tips for repairing doll clothes you ought to remember:
Popped Seams
Taking care of doll clothes entails almost the same methods and principles as your actual clothes. Take popped seams, for instance; analyze the seam for the original holes and knot the loose threads at both ends. Sew in a thread of the same color as the original thread, with the starting and closing points a few millimeters off the edge of the open seam.
No Buttons?
The doll clothes you buy may include a full suit and tie get-up, or a buttoned dress. Regular dress-up games could eventually lead to loose or lost buttons. Considering how missing or loose buttons can make a doll look shabby, you’d want to sew these buttons back on as soon as possible. Simply grab a needle and thread, position the button on the fabric, push the threaded needle up through the fabric and through one hole in the button, and repeat the process until the button is securely in place.

A Few Tips when Choosing Toys

Toys are one of the things that characterize a child the best. Toys keep a child entertained throughout the day and help stimulate his or her senses. Children are always bound to radiate smiles upon the receipt of a new toy—whether for their birthday or during Christmas holidays.
This is why it is important for parents and guardians to surround their tots with the proper toys to help the latter have the ultimate childhood experience. There are several pointers that thoughtful adults should consider when buying toys for children:
Variety is king. Choosing toys that only function if used a certain way can easily bore any child. It is better to choose a toy that allows children to use it in different ways. A toy that has longevity on its side will make it a child’s favorite.
Use the child’s imagination to your advantage. A child is extremely rich in imagination, so a toy that aids the child in make-believe activities like playing house is invaluable. A girl or boy doll is a perfect example of a toy that mixes well with a child’s role-playing games.
Aim for cross-generation playtimes. Toys like puzzles that can be played by both child and adult will result to more exciting and meaningful playtimes than usual. Toys of this type allow the adult to spend quality time with the kids.

Grooming 18-inch Dolls

Dolls will always be part of a girl’s early years. Childhood is often the time when creativity starts to show, and your little princess will want to deck her dolls in various getups. It may even remind you of the scene in Remember the Titans when Coach Boone’s daughter responds to a quip, with “I’m not playing, I’m accessorizing.” As a parent, you can turn things into the right direction by acquiring new clothes for her dolls, but consider these points first:
Buying the right doll clothes warrants scrutiny on your daughter’s own preferences for clothes. For instance, if she has an affinity for the outdoors and sees to it to bring at least one doll with her every time she goes out, you may help her go for pants and shirts. On the other hand, dresses and feminine accessories work if your daughter enjoys girly stuff like Disney princesses and fairies.
Same Same?
Some young girls have a knack for dressing up their dolls in clothes that match their attire in creative ways. Observing your daughter and watching how she mixes and matches her own clothes will give you ideas on which doll clothes to buy. A veritable array of doll clothes that suit your child’s interests will work wonders for their sense of style. Don’t settle for just one set of clothes. Having a slew of doll’s clothes on hand will allow your daughter’s creativity to fly.
