There is nothing Sissy about a doll.
Dolls are not just for girls.
When I have a stall at a market, I often see boys’ faces light up at my table. For some, it is obvious, for others, a subtle sidelong glance and a gleam in the eyes.
Dolls are important for children. They use them not only to cuddle at night, but as alter egos for themselves. In play they act out problems and issues with use of the doll to help resolve and figure things out. Children love to imitate, it’s how they learn.
A big brother can care for a doll just as he sees Mum and Dad doing with the baby.
There is nothing sissy about that!
