Step 1: Read the included storybook to set the foundation for play.
Many, many parents and grandparents have told us how surprised they were at how long their children played with these sets and how engaged they were. Starting a play session by reading the book together gives kids a cozy, safe and fun place to start. And then they can actually build a world that looks just like the one in the book, which can be so validating for them! Finally, they have characters and a plot - and they may act out the story or make up their own version.
Some children will repeat the story from the book over and over again. And some will incorporate their other dolls and figures into the story.
It will be magical to watch them play!
