World Doll Day With Tiny Tears

Saturday, June 09, 2018


If you didn't already know, today is 'World Doll Day' and Elsie was sent the Tiny Tears Interactive Doll to celebrate. We are big fans of Tiny Tears already and Elsie has two other dolls from the range which she has received over the years. Most children at some point throughout childhood have been the proud owner of a doll of some kind. Dolls have even been dated back to as early as the Egyptian times where wooden dolls were found buried in Egyptian tombs. The strongest role models a child can have are those who nurture them such as parents, teachers, doctors, nurses etc. and so when it comes to role play they can mimic those they look up to by caring for their own babies or children. The stories they can create with a doll are limitless and it is fascinating seeing each child's unique way of playing with them.



Elsie is such a fiery character but put a baby or a puppy in front of her and she suddenly shows her nurturing side. She has always loved playing with baby dolls and pushchairs and any other accessories that they come with. As soon as her interactive Tiny Tears came she had her out of the box immediately and was on the hunt for the baby carrier she got for Christmas so she could take her baby out for a walk. She looked so adorable carrying her around in this tiny carrier.  The interactive Tiny Tears makes a range of sounds, she can laugh and cry and say 'mama'. The funniest thing is whenever the baby says 'mama' Elsie laughs and says 'I'm not mama, Mummy is mama'. She likes to think that she is a loving sister rather than a mummy! Her favourite thing to do with Tiny Tears is sit her on the potty so she can do a real wee. 

What I love most about watching Elsie, and her brother and sister before her, is the memories I will always have of them being so loving and caring towards a doll. I still remember Gracie bathing her dolls in a washing up bowl when preparing for her new baby brother to arrive and Zach and Gracie once arguing about who would get to push the dolls pushchair around on Gracie's 4th birthday. It is something they have all loved at some point.

Do you have any happy doll memories?
