Let’s be real... Dolls are in!
As Canada’s Authority on Play, we believe in the benefits of doll play—for every kid!
With the release of the new live action Barbie movie, kids are seeing
captivatingly colourful imagery and sensing the excitement for all things Barbie—and they may be curious!
Though the film is geared toward teens and adults, it opens up a great opportunity for caregivers to introduce younger kids to doll play, and to learn about the benefits of stepping into the magical world of dolls!
Doll play activates brain regions that control social skills, like empathy and compassion. It also aids in the development of key milestones, such as fine motor skills and speech and language.
Every doll offers a different way to play (and dream)! And there are so many to choose from!
