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?

October is here, and it means only one thing: Major League Baseball playoffs! Fans all over the country will once again go crazy for their favorite teams and players as they battle it out on the pitch, making this the perfect time for children to follow all the action with their very own My Pal for Baseball boy dolls. My Pal for Baseball is a playmate for children who have a budding passion for baseball. The dolls come with booklets that make play time an educational moment about the sport. The booklets contain informative facts such as the parts of a baseball field, player positions, and other trivia about the major league teams. In addition, they include space for kids to write about their love for baseball, whether playing it with friends, watching it with their family, or collecting cards that depict their baseball heroes.

Every My Sibling Doll comes with a mission: to teach children about being compassionate to others who are developing differently than they do, and to make the seeds of acceptance and understanding flourish through the stories that accompany each doll. One of the ways in which this message is expressed is through the various themes tied with the figures’ handmade 18-inch doll clothes, ideas that include patriotism, peacemaking, sportsmanship, and thankfulness. Another great thing that My Sibling Dolls gives children is the encouragement to use their imaginations by telling their own stories and creating personalities for their dolls. Mixing and matching doll clothes is a great way for kids to make their dolls a true personal companion. With the changing of the season, children are now starting to greet autumn by getting new outfits perfect for these cooler temperatures.

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.
