1. Taking care of a doll is a chance for children to reenact real life moments they experience in their daily lives which is important for their social, emotional, and language development.
2. This type of play provides parents and caregivers the opportunity to have a dialogue with their children about transitions that may be difficult for them, like taking a nap (they can practice putting their baby to sleep) or getting ready to leave the house (they can dress their doll and help pack up their favorite comfort items).
3. A stroller provides your children with a wonderful gross motor play activity indoors and outside.
4. When you are out for a walk, a stroller can be helpful for keeping your child focused on taking care of their baby and getting to their destination, rather than running off!
