Our Dolls & Soft Toys are useful tools to enhance personal, social and emotional development at all levels. These help provide ideas and incentives to help stimulate thoughts and ideas, nurture imagination, promote discussion, debates and communication, discussion of feelings and emotions, stimulate feelings of empathy, build and boost confidence, self esteem, and rewarding social skills. In the young, dolls and soft toys stimulate the desire to nurture and converse, encourage turn taking, role play and make a fun teaching aid in story times. In the elderly, or a person living with dementia, doll therapy can promote a strong nurturing instinct, and the desire converse, providing companionship, and also exercising and occupying the hands. Having a doll or soft toy to hold, manipulate and nurture, can have a calming, soothing and comforting effect for many, reducing agitation, anxiety, depression and wandering. Whilst those looking on may have concerns that dolls and soft toys are demeaning for adults, the evidence very much results in positive benefits.
