Father’s day is just around the corner! This is a special day for fathers who have time to spend with their children, and it gives many families a chance to celebrate together while strengthening their bonds as a family.
However, many fathers find themselves at a loss at what to do when it comes to playtime with their doll-loving children. Have no fear, The Queen’s Treasures has some tips on how dads can engage in playtime that is meaningful, fun, and exciting.
- Don’t Be Afraid! Playing with dolls is just like when you were a kid. “Even though some dads might now have grown up playing with dolls… it’s never been a better time to start and challenge yourself to something new” says The Dad Blog. If anything, dolls are exactly like the action figures or toys you may have loved when you were younger. Make sure to relate with your child and engage with them in ways that they find the most comfortable and familiar. Even if it involves you helping to put doll clothing on their 18” doll and hosting a tea party, those will be precious moments that neither of you will forget once they’re grown.
- Playtime Can Also Be a Good Time to Learn! Even if playing with dolls is something new to you, you’re definitely not the only one who has something to learn! By watching what your child imagines and expresses when they’re playing with their 18 inch dolls, you’ll be exposed to the inner workings of their mind and cognitive development. A child’s communication is at its most honest and fluent when they are given room to use their voice through their toys. In addition, you can also use this honest opportunity to teach them life lessons. Playing pretend “restaurant” can help you teach your child how to treat food workers kindly, how to comfortably order food independently, and even how to handle money! The possibilities are endless, and that’s what makes playtime the perfect time for you to learn about your child and to make sure your child develops the skills for living a full and happy life.
- Safety & Quality - A Toy’s Promise from you to them - Playtime is absolutely the sweetest and dearest time of your child’s life. It’s important to make sure all of your children’s toys are safe for them to enjoy. Here at The Queen’s Treasures, we always encourage parents to not only to engage in play with their child, but to also make sure every toy and plaything is safety-tested and free of health-threatening chemicals.

Playtime is a gift of immense love that only you can give your child.
