More About This Product
What is the point of a dress up dress if it’s too itchy to put on? This lily pad princess dress is comfortable enough to wear all day without compromising on style. The skirt length should fall somewhere around long tea-length to floor-length, based on your child’s height and the size you choose. Refer to our sizing guide above to get the perfect fit for your little one.
This sweet little dress is an award-winning product with a lifetime guarantee. It is soft and comfortable, with no itchy seams or underskirts, and is made for kids to take off and on all by themselves!
Mom Designed with Kids in Mind
Little Adventures was founded by two moms who happen to have 15 kids between the two of them! They put their mom knowledge to good use when designing these specially made dress ups and created comfortable, durable dress ups that could keep up with their kids and their active imaginations.
As much as you want to encourage your child to play dress up, you don’t want to spend your whole day zipping and unzipping or buttoning and unbuttoning their favorite dress. So, we made our dress ups soft and stretchy and easy to put on, enabling your child to do it without you.
And, while you want to encourage your little fashionista, you don’t want to be vacuuming up glitter for the next three months. That’s why all of our dress ups are glitter-free but still pretty enough to please even the pickiest prima donna.
Best of all, you no longer have to wipe away tears when that chocolate-milk-stained dress comes out of the wash three sizes too small because it was dry-clean only (and you forgot to read the tag!). All of our dresses, including the lily pad princess dress, are machine washable. Simply wash and hang to dry.
The Benefits of Dress Up
When your children play dress up, they aren’t just having fun. Dress up play is actually important for children developmentally. Through dress up, children can practice social skills, test behaviors, act out scenarios that enable them to problem solve and develop emotional resilience.
In short, dress up play helps your child to develop cognitively. By providing your children a safe environment to play imaginatively, you give them the space to grow. But don’t just take our word for it. Early childhood educator, Sarah Baldwin, discusses dress up and lists multiple benefits for children, including:
- Engaging your child’s brain and memory
- Giving your child the chance to practice linguistic skills and expand their vocabulary
- Practice empathy and understand it more deeply
- Explore gender roles
- Exercise their imaginations
It’s a good idea to encourage your children to participate in regular imaginative play, such as dress up play. Not only do they get to enjoy being immersed in a world of play, but they also are able to take a natural break from regular day-to-day routines.
Giving your child time to embrace their inner lily pad princess and play dress up regularly is a great thing to do, especially since it will give them a well-needed break from screen time. While screen time isn’t bad, too much of it can impact your child’s growth and health.
For example, the results from an eye-opening study found that “sixth-graders who went five days without even glancing at a smartphone, television, or other digital screen did substantially better at reading human emotions than sixth-graders from the same school who continued to spend hours each day looking at their electronic devices.”
The results were clear: kids who took breaks from screen time were more socially in-tune than their peers. Dress up play is a great way to avoid excess screen time in your routine. Kids will be having so much fun they’ll forget the tablet altogether.
