What is a Rag Doll?
A rag doll is a children’s toy or cloth figure traditionally home-made from spare scraps of material. Rag dolls are one of the oldest children’s toys in existence. Many rag dolls today are made to replicate these traditional home-made dolls. They feature as soft cloth bodies and cotton clothing. As with most soft toys, rag dolls were originally made to bring comfort to young children. Historically, a rag doll was also a way of teaching kids how to sew by encouraging them to make dolls clothes for themselves.
What’s the Purpose of a Rag Doll for Children?
Kids love dolls. Playing with rag dolls encourages children to use their imaginations. Kids love role-play and it is through this type of play that children develop their language, communication and social skills. Playing with rag dolls can encourage nurturing and empathy, essential in every little ones growth. Rag dolls are still as popular as they have always been. Even though some toy dolls have become very glitzy, the simplicity of a rag doll hasn’t lost its appeal. Children are drawn to a soft and tactile rag doll, plus the natural fabric appeal to their senses and will take on a familiar smell bringing comfort to little ones.
