Learning Along With Your Child - How Dolls Can Help You and Your Little One

Updated: Dec 17, 2023

There are so many ways you can create a special bond with your child; but nothing comes close to the priceless memories you can create with our Cinnamon Annie Dolls.

There is nothing quite like the bond between a mother and child; it can be a joyful and meaningful experience but it can also require some learning. Our children can teach us as much as we teach them. Playing with our dolls is one way you can teach and learn!

Here are some of the ways dolls can help to teach both your child and you!

Learning Responsibility: Being a child isn’t just about having fun, it’s about learning the necessary skills to take care of yourself as you get older. Sure, there are chores we give our children but we can also cultivate this sense of responsibility by doing something fun with them and playing with dolls.

Early Discovery: Doll play helps your child explore and discover. It also allows you to discover them! Try paying attention to what interests your child the most during playtime. Do they enjoy making cute dresses for their doll? Do they love fixing their doll’s hair with colorful ribbons and bows? Do you find them constantly checking the ‘temperature’ of their doll? Learning what interests your child is important because it helps you get to know them on a deeper level!

Self-Scrutiny: Children reflect their mother’s behavior. By watching your daughter or son play with their “child”, you may come to better understand how you mother your own children. Instilling and nurturing qualities such as kindness, compassion, and patience in our kids is essential. Watching them, you’ll be able to understand what your child needs more of.

Help your child embrace diversity: One of the beautiful things about our Cinnamon Annie dolls is their diversity. They are handmade in diverse skin shades, hair colors, and sizes. We make brown and black dolls to reflect the diversity that other dolls do not reflect. Your child may see their own beauty in this doll; or, perhaps this will raise their awareness of diversity. We intend to help eliminate biases from the world.

You can become a better mom for your child in exciting ways and Step Stitches is here to help. By purchasing our dolls, let your child’s learning journey be yours as well.
