According to researchers, these playthings have unique advantages over other toys because kids know that a plush puppy or a princess doll represents a living thing; they can relate and attach emotions to. Playing with these "friends" allows kids to explore their complex feelings. Stuffed animals also give 2- and 3-year-olds the chance to master people skills, improve their vocabulary, and much more.
