Criteria Used for Evaluation
Playing with dolls also help children develop their pragmatic skills or social communication skills. This helps them understand that certain social situations may require different manners of communicating. It essentially helps kids to use language for a variety of purposes and to adapt his or her language to the needs of the other person or even the situation. Likewise, pragmatics allow children to follow some of the unspoken rules of conversation. These can all be enhanced by their playing with dolls as they can practice using their language through the different scenarios that they have conceived for their dramatic and fantasy play.
We had to rely on the design of the Monster High Doll, while also making sure that each item was appropriate for the developmental age of children who will play with them on a daily basis. We examined each one especially in terms of benefits that they will have in the development of children. We read through hundreds of customer reviews as well as parent feedback regarding the usefulness in the doll bringing joy to their children or helping their children grow and develop more optimally.
Now, many of these self-help skills require manual dexterity. For example, unbuttoning one’s shirt requires careful and very precise movements of the fingers as each button is carefully slotted out of its buttonhole. Buttoning is a similar endeavor where the different muscles of the fingers must be contracted at exactly the same time so that the button can be slotted through and in its hole. Perhaps, more importantly, is the mastery of using both hands in a coordinated manner. Buttoning, for example, requires one hand to hold the button while the other opens the buttonhole. This also requires hand-eye coordination, precision, and understanding of spatial relations. All self-help activities will require the balance and coordination of both hands. And all of these can be mastered using dolls such as those from Mattel’s Monster High.
Cognitively, kids playing with dolls learn about the different parts of the body especially those that can be readily seen such as the eyes, nose, lips, hair, skin, arms, legs, feet, and a whole lot more. This can also help in their language skills by expanding their vocabulary. You can also teach them the names of the different types of clothes like pants, dress, shirts, socks, and jammies, among other types of clothing. With Monster High Dolls, there’s so much to learn especially with the different accessories that come with each package. The different body parts of the doll, its clothing, and its accessories can also be used to teach kids about adjectives, verbs, or feelings associated with such things. For example, kids can learn that their Monster High Doll is “beautiful” and “tall” and that their dolls can go “hungry” if they are not able to “eat.” If they don’t eat in time, then they will be “sad.”
