They include cognitive benefits such as increase in language usage and the awareness that ones thoughts may differ from another persons. Pretend play also allows for expression of positive and negative feelings without repercussion.

It is also believed that pretend play may enhance a child's capacity for cognitive flexibility and ultimately creatively.
