FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: KidStuff Public Relations Lisa Orman • 608-767-1102 lisa@kidstuffpr.com Skaneateles, NY (December 14, 2011) – Parents appreciate that away from their 24/7 life of computers, electronics and gadgets they can still give their children the wonderful world of playing with dolls. Owning a doll means make-up-as-you-go adventures created by a child’s imagination. German toymaker HABA embraces the play value of dolls and has created even more perks with new dolls, a closetful of sweet clothing for the 16 dolls in the HABA family plus “mini-me” accessories from a table seat to a baby carrier. See them all at the bountiful HABA Booth 319 at the American International Toy Fair in February. In the “mini-me” world of downsized objects – dolls, beds, baby carrier and garments – preschoolers get an opportunity to begin to see their own place in the world and to learn the different roles people play. Academic articles are full of the many benefits of playing with dolls. They can increase cognitive thinking and problem-solving abilities. Allowing your child to be the parent of their own doll allows you to teach them what it means to take on the responsibility of physically and emotionally caring for another person. Boys and girls improve their communication skills and work through conflict resolution as well! Moms know that playtime can also be learning time. In addition to its educational benefits (!) each HABA doll includes that wonderful European design and an eye for detail for which the company is so well known. Their line of doll accessories for 2012 is priced affordably with choices from $11.99. All doll products are designed for play by children 18 months and older. Moms will appreciate that both dolls and their clothing are machine washable! Download Press Release (pdf)
