Soft toys help children develop social skills by interacting and learning how to be kind & nurturing to their toy. Adults can also use soft toys to teach lessons, such as having the soft toy "feel" an emotion and then offer comfort and advice to him.
Soft toys provide comfort & security (especially during transition times and when the main caregiver is not available).
Children can develop & practice language skills (soft toys are great listeners!) and also develop creativity and imagination.
