If you are a parent or grandparent looking for the perfect gift for a child this this year, have you considered a dolls pram? Ideal for kids of all ages, a dolls pram helps fuel the imagination and can provide hours of entertainment over the Christmas period and beyond.
At Play Like Mum, we create some of the finest, most realistic dolls prams available on the market, so we’re obviously biased as to the why they make such a great toy for your little one.
Keep reading for some of the reasons we think a dolls pram makes the ideal gift this Christmas.
A Christmas Gift For Children Of All Ages
Whilst there is no strict lower or upper limit to the age a child may find a dolls pram a fun toy, children under 18 months might not have the required coordination skills to push a dolls pram, and children over 12 years old may start to develop other interests and move on from dolls on prams.
However, in between those ages, a dolls pram is a fun toy that can help kids develop their imaginative play skills and provide hours of fun. To make shopping easier for parents, we categorise our dolls prams by age as children of younger/older ages will have different abilities and needs.
Nearly all of our models do come with adjustable handlebars too so kids can enjoy their dolls pram, even as they grow taller.
For the littlest of kids, the Daisy Chain Pocket Dolls Pram is ideal. The fixed handle height is suitable for kids aged between 18 months and 3 years. Ideal for toddlers, and little ones starting to explore the world around them and become more mobile, the Pocket Dolls Pram is a simple first pram that will allow your child to operate it with ease and doesn’t contain any moving parts where little fingers may get trapped – toy safety is a key consideration at this age.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the Daisy Chain Pinnacle Double Dolls Pram. This is one of the largest and most realistic doll prams we produce. It’s suited to kids between the ages of 7 to 13. The extendable handles mean even the tallest of children can still enjoy the pushchair.
The Pinnacle is ideal for older children as their interests start to change and they want to toys that represent ‘real word’ objects. The Pinnacle is just like a real travel system and has so many combinations your child will never be bored! Changing the configuration of the pram from double pram to stroller or switching the carrycots around will keep your little one entertained all Christmas long, and beyond.
Dolls Prams For All Children
Once seen as a toy ‘for girls’, dolls prams are actually the ideal toy for all children. Many parents purchase our quality dolls prams for both boys and girls.
What does it mean to play with a pram? A child doesn’t understand gender roles that have been cemented by society – to them, a dolls pram is just a way to push a baby doll out and about. This behaviour is often learnt from seeing parents do the same thing with prams and babies.
Playing with a dolls pram is a form of imaginative play – children use their imagination to help them make sense of the world around them and role playing with toys such as prams is a part of that.
Imaginative play is essential for all children and their development – you can read more about the benefits of imaginary play here.
Value For Money Children’s Christmas Gifts
When you’re searching for Christmas gifts for your kids, top of the list is value for money and longevity.
There are so many disposable, cheap children’s toys on the market now and parents are rightly, now looking for quality items that will last their children years and not end up in landfill.
When you buy a dolls pram from a retailer that has a focus on quality (like us!), you get excellent value for money for a couple of reasons:
Our prams are priced extremely competitively, at least in relation to the quality you are receiving. Our dolls prams are not the most expensive on the market but are extremely high quality. Our focus is on using quality materials to make toys that look just like the real thing and last a long time.
Our dolls prams also provide value based on the amount of play your child will receive. Dolls prams are not a toy you would buy on regular basis – choosing the right one means your child will be able to enjoy their pram for years to come!
Not only will your child enjoy their Daisy Chain pram for years, but because the quality is so good, our toys can be gifted to other children after your child has grown out of their pram – younger siblings or a friend’s child. Our prams are built to stand up to generations of play!
