Baby Slinger – Just Like Mama!

Watching your children play with dolls can be like looking through a mirror at your own parenting.  Not the part where they grab them by the ankle and drag them up the stairs, of course (thunk, thunk, thunk).  Rather, pay close attention to how they cuddle and care for their little pretend babies and you will get a heart-warming affirmation of your nurturing.

Children use dolls to role play and process their day.  And they mimic what you do with them and their siblings.

That’s why I love the Corolle Doll Sling.  My kids love to zoom their dolls around in strollers–anything with wheels is a huge hit.  However, our doll strollers got more use than our real stroller.  And my preschool-aged daughter wants to be able to carry her baby doll the same way I carry her baby brother–in a sling.  We made a DIY pouch sling out of one of her old t-shirts but it wasn’t really a “hands-free” carrier.  The Corolle Doll Sling is a front-pack carrier that enables my daughter to carry her baby doll everywhere.

If I were to do a design tweak, I would add a tie or buckle in back or have the straps criss-cross so they do not slide down on longer “baby doll wearing” walks (something you can easily do yourself by tying a ribbon in the back).

The colors are great on this cute doll carrier and your little one will love to carry her special dollies around everywhere she goes!

Bebe TresorThe perfect doll to carry along is Bebe Tresor. Corolle has the cutest interactive features and Bebe Tresor coos, giggles, babbles, and cries–just like a real baby!  My children have a great time “comforting” a crying baby doll and playing with a doll that giggles.

My children want to bring their dolls everywhere but a doll stroller is not always convenient and I do not want them to forget or lose their “friend”.  A doll sling is a great way to keep a favorite baby doll close by.

Doll play builds empathy.  And my little ones feel very important caring for their baby dolls–just like Mommy and Daddy!
