- Baby Dolls
Both little girls and boys benefit from playing with baby dolls. Taking care of a pretend baby helps toddlers learn that other people have needs and teaches them to be sensitive to those needs. Toddlers and preschoolers would love a simple baby doll with a bottle and a diaper to "change," while girls ages 5 to 9 will want a few outfits and accessories to go with the doll.
Pretend play is even better with a dollhouse as a setting for make-believe stories. They're available in a wide variety of styles and sizes, so you can shop for a dollhouse that will go well with your daughter's favorite dolls, whether those are fashion dolls or they are princesses in need of a castle to live in.
