The dolls have been playing a very special role in many cultures since the beginning of the human existence. They have been used in rituals and ceremonies, they were made to become symbol and amulets, and the most important is that they have always been a one of the most valued toys for children.
The dolls are the reflection of humans and especially for children they become the first attempts to discover their identity by playing with dolls and assigning them human roles. Little girls of just 2 years assign a role of a baby to a doll and like to wrap it in the piece of cloth, just like mama did when they were babies. Later they imitate dresses and gowns by wrapping their dolls in colourful pieces of fabrics.
One can go on and on describing how children play with dolls. However, let's turn to the subject of babywearing. This is big issue in the relationship of mother and child has been transferred into the world of dolls and here they are the Babywearing Dolls.
