The Doll Family

Melissa and Doug Doll family

Children may have difficulty articulating feelings about a family situation such as a new baby, a divorce, or grandparents moving in. This set, with grandparents, mother, father, daughter son and baby, helps us act out our perceptions of family life and major events, opening the door to discussing a variety of family situations.

Everything you need for your very own marching band is included in this child friendly musical instrument set. Various instruments provide a wide range of sounds, exposing children to different tones, volume, and rhythm.
For children who might be sensitive to volume, use repeated gradual exposure to increase tolerance for loud noises. Also a great way to prepare children for an upcoming school concert or their first music class.
