Baby Get Well
Children do get sick and that can be frightening. This 15" soft-bodied doll will be the right patient for learning to comfort and heal. Doll has voice that tells you how she is feeling if you press her arm gently. Her cheeks get red. She coughs and sneezes and says she doesn't feel good. When she gets her bottle of juice she gets "all better." She comes complete with thermometer, bottle, but needs one 9-volt battery. Is there a doctor in the room?

Easy directions and a lot of fun and learning in this project.

Pretend to be an animal, object, or an action like "taking a bath" or "skating." Children and adults can have fun by playing this game together.
