Go for a kit that stocks the shelves with a variety of dress up items for your child. Wedding dresses are often included here or, if not you can add to them. These kits allow children to be as creative as their imagines can make them be. Creativity is one of the most important elements in a developing child's brain. In fact, pretend play is an essential tool for the development of the child not only for being artful and playful, but also for developing the skills of communication, social interactions as well as foundations they will need for school.
