Hope Learning Toys 'The Friend Ship'
DescriptionThis hand painted Friend Ship set is a top pick for emotional and social development, not to mention storytelling, dramatic play (okay, we could go on…). Use these dolls to help kids convey how they’re feeling through play, which makes the topic of “feelings” less heavy. Not only do children practice recognizing their own feelings, they learn how to recognize feelings in others by noticing the expressions on the dolls faces. In addition, this set offers children an opportunity to discuss aspects of friendship like conflict and empathy.

Play is okay! tip
Use this set to discuss emotional response and regulation with children. Pair the toy with the books "My Mouth is a Volcano" by Julia Cook or "Sometimes I'm Bombaloo" by Rachel Vail and use the texts as jumping off points for discussions about constructive ways to handle emotional experiences.
