Doll play is more than just fun. Playing with dolls, children are role reversing - becoming a parent rather than child. They mimic their parents actions, speech and nurturing skills. As a result children enhance their vocabulary, dexterity, emotions and feeling of empathy. Doll play allows a child to vent their frustrations, love or even aggression without consequences. It is a safe way to release emotions. In playcentres and preschools, children can spend endless hours playing with doll houses, dressing and undressing dolls and babies and creating a home with play people.
