A Word from a Psychologist
Written By: Psychologist Natasha Tanic
- Four year old girls gain more independence and self-confident
- Dolls promote a girl’s social and verbal skills
Why Do Girls Love Dolls?
Studies show that kids’ preferences for gendered toys are innate, not socially constructed.
When offered a variety of toys, most girls choose the doll because a social aspect of dolls attracts them as they allow for identification. In addition, dolls provide fun and endless opportunities for play and exploration.
Your little one’s imagination allows her to identify with her doll. By identifying with the doll, your four year old girl learns to express her feelings, manage emotions, and develop compassion.
Also, dolls boost language and speech development, teach girls cooperation, and spark their creativity.
Of course, four year old girls enjoy other toys that provide fun and countless educational benefits such as puzzles, LEGO, blocks, themed playsets, outdoor play equipment, books, and more.
Top Toys For 4 Year Old Girls
Learning Journey Match It – Spelling
One of the best ways for your 4 year old girl to learn is through fun activities and the Learning Journey Match It – Spelling is perfect for that.
The set includes 10 four-piece word puzzles and 10 three-piece word puzzles designed to introduce your child to the art of spelling.
Each puzzle when complete will show an object with the word describing that object on the bottom. The spelling for the object will either contain 3 letters or 4 letters depending on which puzzle your child tries to solve.
For example, let’s say one of the objects on a completed puzzle is a cow. This would be a three-piece puzzle, so each puzzle piece would have part of the cow showing, along with one of the letters to spell the word ‘cow’!
The wonderful thing about this approach is that your little girl is learning how to associate words and spelling with objects. This skill will stand her in good stead when she starts school.
Having both three and four piece puzzle pieces provides her with a degree of challenge to really hold her interest and foster her inner competitive spirit.
