“Some of my favourite childhood memories are of playing ‘dolls’ with my younger sister.

Playing with dolls allowed me to explore my creativity and imagination by inventing different storylines and customizing hairstyles and outfits. It also allowed me to develop my social skills when I had to negotiate and communicate in order to make the game flow.

Using dolls in therapy is a wonderful way to encourage children to interact with others and practice interpersonal skills, such as turn-taking, sharing, and empathy, whilst utilizing new words and phrases in a fun and safe environment.”
