Pros And Cons Of Electronic Baby Dolls

Sep 5, 2008
Baby dolls have existed ever since someone thought of drawing a face onto a piece of fabric or wood, and have been loved by children world-wide. Toys have resumed becoming more and more sophisticated, and now children demand the very latest in technology for their presents.

But is this good for them?

As parents, you have the duty to care for our child and make him/her happy, but you also have a duty to raise them correctly. This includes supplying the best opportunities to develop educationally and emotionally.

Electronic baby dolls seem so nice at first glance. The commercials on the television are fabulous, and they make every little girl want a baby of their own - just like Mommy!

A baby doll like this will make a child feel like part of the family when Mommy is off dealing with a new baby, because they have a new baby of their own to look after.

There are plenty of down-sides to these dolls, though. Dolls help develop a child's emotional side. A baby doll is something to be loved. A lot of the love we develop for a special toy comes from the emotions we devote into the relationship.

A toy doesn't need to respond. This is all part of the child's development; they are allowed to use their creativity and imagination. The doll can become whatever they want it to be because the reactions aren't limited by the imagination of the doll manufacturers.

These dolls need to have their batteries replaced, which can damage the environment.

The dolls can be very heavy and quite hard. A doll should be nice, soft and cuddly.

There are also up-sides for these dolls. They allow a child to practice nurturing and enable them to develop the skills they will need when they become parents. They are used in schools to help impending parents learn what it would be like to have a baby in the house. These dolls are very sophisticated and can be programmed by the teacher to demand a response from the career at specific intervals. These are a great idea, and they are sure to help deter some teenagers from becoming parents too soon.

These dolls are good when used as learning tools, but not for the younger child. Young children, both male and female, need to develop their imagination, and giving them a pre-programmed doll is not the way to do it.
