Lil’ Gumdrop Dolls are 7.5" by 0.25" thick wooden dolls with Velcro to attach polyester felt clothes. Dolls are made from 1/4” MDF wood, which is very strong, and splinter free. Each doll comes with 56 outfits, from seasonal clothes to costumes of every kind.
The doll clothes are delivered uncut on sheets of felt. The clothes are designed to be cut as close as possible to the black outline for best fit. Some imperfections may exist in the unused felt.
Dolls may be cleaned with a lint-free dust cloth, or a slightly dampened cloth, then wiped dry. Clothes may be ironed (polyester setting) on the back side if needed.
Recommended ages 3+.
Kids love them for:
♥ Quiet time
♥ Car rides
♥ Story time
♥ Wherever their imagination leads them!
You could also use the dolls to have your students dress up the dolls according to the weather! There are so many outfits to choose from to match each season! They are perfect for morning meetings or circle time!
Sunny is adorable, would be great for days when the students have inside recess. Just set the dolls out on a table, and their imagination does the rest!
If you are doing a unit on fairy tales, Molly and other Gumdrop Dolls would be great for re-telling activities!
If your students get finished with their work early, they can quietly play with the dolls until the transition of the next center or lesson.
The dolls help exercise their fine motor skills, imagination, problem solving skills, small motor manipulative skills, and retelling! They can recall stories, tell their own stories, and even write down stories that they create with the dolls!
