Maileg’s little sister mouse is beautifully detailed and comes in her own ‘matchbox’ complete with bedding (a padded mattress, pillow and blanket). What little girl wouldn’t love tucking her new friend into bed at night – a gorgeous gift!
Little sister mouse is wearing a pink spotted skirt over a pink body suit (only the skirt is removable). Little sister is made from 100% cotton, her eyes, mouth and nose are embroidered and she has a cute leather tail.
Her box is made from extra heavy duty cardboard with vintage style illustrations.
Playing with dolls provides a rich opportunity for your child to develop language skills and extend their vocabulary – from naming parts of the doll’s body and the clothing the doll is wearing to using verbs and action words for activities in which the child engages the doll, as well as exploring words for feelings.
It also provides children with the opportunity to make sense of their world, bringing it down to a manageable size and allowing them to describe and act out some of the things that they observe.
Perhaps most importantly, doll play can help children to develop skills in nurturing and caring for others. During play, the child engages in activities that makes them responsible for the well-being of their own baby as they practice caring for it. In carrying, holding, feeding, and rocking a baby doll, children are practising being loving to others.
Size: Little sister mouse is approx 10 cm high
