Which doll pram is right for your child?
Playing with doll prams has many developmental benefits. In addition to encouraging movement, it helps develop fine motor skills, balance, gross motor skills, and physical strength in children. It facilitates imaginative play and provides a risk-free play environment to explore new ideas.
Some parents may find it difficult to choose the right doll pram for their child with so many options available. Don’t worry if you are one of these parents. The following are some factors to consider before purchasing a dolls pram:
Age of Your Child
In order to prevent any potential injuries and to maximize your child’s learning, it is important to choose age-appropriate toys. Make sure you buy a doll pram that is appropriate for your child’s age. Some doll prams have small detachable parts that are considered potential choking hazards so read the label and warning.
Additionally, doll prams come in a variety of sizes and styles. Your child’s height will help you choose the right doll pram. Handles shouldn’t be so high that your child has to tiptoe to reach them and not too low that she has to stoop down to reach them.
Even if your budget is tight, you can still surprise your child with a doll pram. There are doll prams that come with accessories such as bedding and blankets. Do not worry if the doll pram you are interested in does not come with accessories. Either you can buy them separately or you can make your own. You can use muslin cloths as blankets and bedding. Online resources exist for DIY doll blankets if you are an arts and crafts enthusiast.
Types of Doll Prams
Doll prams are either made from plastic or wood. Although most wooden toy prams and plastic toy prams are in the same price range, buying natural prams has many advantages. The environmental impact of plastic is now well known to most of us. They are not biodegradable and it takes thousands of years for them to break down. Furthermore, plastic products require a lot of energy resources, which contributes to increasing carbon emissions.
Alternatively, wooden prams are made from sustainable materials. A wooden toy has a classic look and is good for the environment like any other wooden toy.
A doll pram with so many features like adjustable handles is often more expensive than a simple toy pram. Don’t worry, simple doll prams don’t mean boring. It really comes down to personal preference. Even a simple doll pram will provide your child with plenty of fun playtime. Another feature to consider is the size of the pram. Be sure that the doll you plan to buy fits into the doll pram that you are planning to buy.
