Pretend play gives children opportunities to explore different settings in a safe and supportive setting. It helps your child to try out real life situations or imitate different kinds of dialogue, which help develop their vocabulary and linguistic skills. For example, Under the Nile Organic Broccoli can be a great way for children to simulate healthy eating habits and for you to discuss what this means. As simple characters, Tomato, Carrot and the rest of the veggie pals can help your child discover and explore new settings like a garden or a grocery store. By taking part in pretend play, your child is stimulated intellectually and is encouraged to explore and develop his or her creativity.
