Kids learn alot about life through play time, whether it’s with games, activities, or their imagination. This can be especially true for the younger kids and playing with dolls, whether they are boys or girls. But not all kids look the same and it can be difficult to explain why certain dolls only have this color skin or hair available! But that’s not the case with these realistic baby dolls from Educational Insights. They have several skin tones, hair types, and both boy and girl dolls to choose from, perfect for playing and make believe.

Benefits of Imaginative Play
Discover a world of imaginative play, an essential part of early childhood development! Imaginative play in general encourages language and vocabulary skills, cultivates social and emotional growth, develops imagination, and helps children make sense of the world and various roles and activities around them. Doll play in particular teaches the importance of empathy and caregiving, provides companionship and support, and cultivates independence. With realistic, just-like-me skin tones and hair, Baby Bijoux is your child’s (imaginative play) best friend.
I love to hear my kids playing when they don’t know I’m listening. Instead of fighting over toys or who broke what, they can be really sweet. Especially when my son decides he’s not too old to play with his little sister and they decide to put several toys in a group to be played with by both parties. It’s so cute to hear them taking care of baby dolls, soldiers, stuffed animals, and more by playing house, animal hospital, or just all around silly play. A lot of times, one will be a stay-at-home Mom or Dad while the other goes to work, or they will pretend to work in a doctor’s office and take care of their patients. Some of those “patients” have some pretty interesting ailments like a stinky foot or a balance problem where they can only stand on their head.
I know when I was growing up, there weren’t too many varieties when it came to skin tones or hair types if you wanted a baby doll to play with. And if you wanted a male baby, it looked like the girl versions but with blue clothes instead. And that’s okay too, but I love that in today’s world, our kids can pick from several different “just-like-me” skin tones and hair types so they have a baby that looks just like them, or instead, like others in the world.
People aren’t just one color or gender, and our kids recognize that at an early age. Why not introduce it into their play time too? They still get to have fun and be creative, all while learning about kindness, care-giving, and physical differences. The realistic baby dolls from the Baby Bijoux line from Educational Insights includes African American, Asian, Caucasian and Hispanic skin tones and hair types. You can pick out the ones they’d like the best, or even several so they have a “family” to play with. It’s okay to notice differences while still understanding that we are all people at the end of the day. This is a wonderful life lesson to be taught at such a young age.
