Creative Parenting Expert, Nikki Bush has put together loads of different types of dolls that both girls and boys can play with.

Creative Parenting Expert, Nikki Bush looks at dolls that both girls and boys can play with and why is it important that children play with dolls.

Bush says dolls are for everyone because we are all born to care for something smaller than ourselves.

Dolls bring out the caring and nurturing aspect in children and they are an opportunity for kids to practice caring for somebody or something, says Bush.

The play pattern of nurturing, because it is innate in all of us, whether you are a boy or girl we need to give an opportunity for children to get in touch with that part of themselves.

Nikki Bush, Creative Parenting Expert

Dolls give children an opportunity to be the mommy, daddy, a teacher or a doctor who is taking care of a child. Children are usually on the receiving end of that caring but with dolls, they can be those adult role models... they get to practice what they experience in real life.

Nikki Bush, Creative Parenting Expert

Children get to play some of their inner emotions by playing with dolls, they get to play their inner state in an appropriate way and that's a healthy thing to allow children to do, to get their feelings in order.
