There are so many benefits of playing with dolls. They help children when they are developing social skills and learning about empathy and compassion. As well as promoting language skills and encouraging imaginative play. Not to mention the comfort and companionship they can give to babies, toddlers children and adults.
Our fantastic range of soft dolls really does have something for everyone. Rubens have a great range of handmade dolls, most of which are suitable from birth so they make wonderful gifts for a new baby and are extremely popular with toddlers. The weighted baby dolls are anatomically correct, boys or girls, and have proved a wonderful gift for children becoming a brother or sister for the first time. These empathy dolls have also been found to be suitable for dementia patients thanks to the weight and the variety of skin colours available.
Additional outfits can be bought for the Rubens and Bigjigs soft dolls making them perfect for dress up and the Rubens baby dolls even fit into real baby clothes and tiny nappies.
