Many toddlers love to tote around a baby doll, but some may want to dive further into that world and try their hand at an interactive, lifelike baby doll that makes sounds and responds to its surroundings just like a real baby. Allowing children, no matter the sex, to play with dolls is an easy way for parents to aid a child’s imagination while they develop social, emotional, and even language skills. With interactive dolls, children learn to react and respond to real-life situations and interact with others. Not to mention, playing with dolls early on fosters a love a caregiving, and nurturing within children so that they may grow into adults who might one day be prepared and nurturing parents. Or, at least, decent babysitters for you one day!
