The nurturing bond between mother and a child is something that spans years, cultures, and even species! Little ones are never too young to learn about nurturing, which is why our Nursing Nana and Nursing Nina are such great toys for young children. Our Nursing pets encourage nurturing through role play. Nursing Nina and Nana support children’s social and emotional development through play. Caring for the little puppies and kittens allows them to act out the bond they’ve learned from their caregivers, thereby, learning how to care for others and how to comfort them. And strengthening these skills is important in building close relationships and maintaining friendships. It takes many years for these skills to mature, even us adults are still trying to master them!
