Here are three ways Stork Babies help the world......
- Improve children’s self-esteem and confidence
Here at The Fiammetta Toy Company Inc, our basic foundation is children. We truly believe that all children can and should believe in themselves and their abilities. Because of this, all of our beautiful babies come with their own positive inspirational sayings that help children’s self-esteem and confidence, like:
- Have faith in your abilities. You can achieve anything!
- Don’t worry about coming in first, just have fun!
- Don’t worry about what other people think of you, just be yourself. You are the best at that!
We truly believe that if you believe in yourself, so much is possible. And that starts at a very young age! So having children play with dolls that all have their own individual characteristics and unique inspirational/positive sayings, will be a benefit to children to help believe in their own abilities.
- Create Imaginative Plan
I read an article recently in Scientific American Mind (May 2017 edition) by Melinda Wenner Moyer. She says “Free Imaginative play is crucial for normal social, emotional and cognitive development. It makes us better adjusted, smarter and less stressed.” She references a study by Stuart Brown, that states that when he interviewed 26 convicted Texas murderers for a pilot study, he discovered that most of the killers, shared two things in common: 1) They were from abusive families and 2) They never played as kids. Since his earlier study he interviewed 6000 additional people about their childhoods and his data suggested that a lack of opportunities for unstructured, imaginative play can keep children from growing into happy, well-adjusted adults. Free play as scientists call it, is critical for becoming socially adept, coping with stress and building cognitive skills such as problem solving. Free play does not include soccer or other sports or piano etc. Parents are sacrificing playtime for more structured activities as they are concerned about their kids into college. After school hours are being filled with sports and music lessons, reducing the time for imaginative and rambunctious play. Brown and other psychologists’ worry that limiting free play in kids may result in a generation of anxious, unhappy and socially maladjusted adults.
So Stork Babies help to provide FREE PLAY AND IMAGINATIVE PLAY. Stork Babies can fly in the air and be the babies to Barbie dolls. They can cook and jump over flowers…… Whatever your imagination comes up with, they are there for children to have fun with.
