Role play is a fantastic way for little ones to learn and develop their communication, creativity and imagination. According to current research, a child’s ability for creativity and cognitive flexibility are closely linked to role play. This means that little ones should exercise and train their brain’s to imagine as early as possible and we have a wide range of role play toys from Little Dutch to help to develop this.
Another reason for Role play is the social and emotional benefits that little ones obtain from it. It's common to find children placing themselves in an imaginary setup and this helps to develop empathy and understanding, along with creative thinking. Through role-play, children can learn how to manage their emotions and our range of Role play toys from Little Dutch and sold by us (Mabel & Fox) are a great way to support this.
Along with the benefits above, role play helps to develop language and communication skills, widening little ones' vocabulary and enabling them to communicate better to the friends and families. It can also help to develop their problem solving and physical development too!
