Playing dress ups in a Doctor outfit is one of the simplest, yet greatest joys for your toddler. It brings out endless imagination in young children and allows them to not only develop life skills, but a chance to dream and to live out those dreams through play. It’s fantastic to watch your kids play make believe, and just enjoy expressing their imagination in so many different ways.
