Made to Match
Our Sleeping Beauty doll dress is wonderful on its own, but it is even better to complement our Sleeping Beauty dress up dress for children. The doll dress is a miniature version of the dress up, crafted with a commitment to quality and comfort.
Both the Sleeping Beauty dress up and the doll dress are made from the same fabric and materials. Your little one will adore how well their costume matches with their doll or plush animal.
Whether you buy both dresses as a set or buy the doll dress later as a gift, your child will love these products. It’s the perfect birthday present, Christmas present, or surprise gift before or after visiting a fairy-tale-themed theme park.
Mom Designed With Kids In Mind
As a company founded by moms, we understand how important it is for children to play dress up and play with dolls. We also know that dress ups and doll clothes are too often poorly designed.
That’s why we have eliminated everything moms hate about doll clothes:
- No poor quality fabrics
- No glitter
- No dry-clean only
- No tricky zippers or buttons
Now, your children can play dolly dress up for hours, and you can relax. If your child spills chocolate milk on their doll’s Sleeping Beauty doll dress or gets it soaked in mud, you can simply throw it in the wash. In no time at all, your little ones will be back to playing happily.
Is Playing With Dolls Good For Children?
If you have a little prince or princess, you probably have a box full of dolls and stuffed animals. But are those toys just taking up space? Parents may wonder if playing with dolls is truly helpful for their children.
Good news: doll play is great for kids and can lead to developmental growth!
In a study on the effects of doll play on children, conducted by Gerson et al. at Cardiff University, researchers found that “doll play activates brain regions which are associated with social information processing and empathy, indicating that doll play enables children to rehearse, use and perform these skills even when playing on their own.”
In other words, through doll play, children can practice using empathy and compassion. They can improve their social skills by acting out scenarios, even when engaging in solo doll play.
This study is groundbreaking because it supplies neurological evidence to support Jean Piaget’s theories that play is beneficial for children.
Doll play is also great for modern kids and families because it provides a natural break from screen time. By encouraging your children to engage in doll play, you help them practice using their imaginations, becoming less reliant on tablets and smartphones for entertainment.
Is Doll Play Beneficial For All Children?
Societally, we have been conditioned to see doll play as something for young girls, but both boys and girls can enjoy and benefit from doll play. Gerson et al. reported that the “benefits of solo doll play were shown to be equal for both boys and girls.”
Both boys and girls develop neurologically when they engage in doll play. As a parent, you don’t need to worry about your child engaging in doll play if it doesn’t quite fit into gender norms. Your child, regardless of gender, can learn and develop their social skills when allowed to play with dolls.
Indeed, allowing your boys to play with dolls may be highly beneficial to them. In an article about toy play, Kevin Zoromski pointed out that “all play leads to higher achievement in developmental milestones for children who are given the choice of how to play and what to play with.” So go ahead and let your little ones play how they like.
