Dolls are an excellent choice for one of baby’s first toys as they provide several benefits. A doll can help baby develop fine motor skills as she grasps and releases the toy. Dolls also provide sensory and tactile stimulation from their bright colors, various textures, and sounds. Furthermore, a baby’s first doll may become a special security toy. Once baby is older, she will develop instinctive nurturing, language and social skills from imaginative doll play.
