Soft Toys are Closely Linked to Child Development
Did you know that soft plush toys or stuffed animals and dolls are closely linked to the development of your little ones? Don’t be surprised if these toys become your child’s imaginary friends and cuddly pals your little one doesn’t let go. Here are some key advantages of letting your children play with soft toys:
- Comfort: At a younger age, children are still grappling with the complexities of everything around them and cuddly toys offer them the much-needed comfort. They can cope better with their infant emotions, stress, and anxiety which they may or may not be able to express at that age through words or in any other manner.
- Social Skills: When your infants are clinging on to their favourite toys, it is laying the foundation of important social skills. During their pretend play, they mimic everyday activities that they go through with you and take on the role of a parent or caregiver with their toys. This in turn fosters discipline, compassion and empathy, and prepares them for a variety of future social interactions.
- Linguistic Skills: While your children are playing with their soft toys they are most definitely having a conversation, even if you hear them babble, or can’t hear them at all. As a parent, you can nurture this communication by engaging in a pretend play where the toys talk back to the children. This will encourage your toddlers to start talking and using a language to communicate with their cuddly pals. These play conversations are sure to improve the linguistic skills of your little ones.
