Say hello to our Branch Family, a set of four simple wooden dolls with felt tunic and caps. They love living in our tree houses. Their simple non-gender specific design appeals to both girls and boys. Through play, children explore their world and gather essential experiences necessary for their cognitive, emotional and physical development. Children need the chance to explore, ask questions, and to meet and play with other children. Role play, particularly with playmates they know and trust, is a chance for children to use their imagination, be inventive, develop social skills and grow in maturity.
