Ever since we first started carving, we have given our children dolls to play with. They love being able to play multiple characters, live out fantasy worlds, and play with different scenarios. This is actually a vital part of children’s development, and it helps them to put themselves in other people’s shoes, discern right from wrong, develop their communication skills, and understand what their place in the world is. But with so many dolls out on the market today, how do we know which one is best suited to our child’s needs? We’ve had a look at some available dolls and picked our top ten dolls for kids.
