A recent study by the UK firm Oxy Insight shows children gain important social and emotional skills through doll play. The results indicate this is true for both cooperative play with others and even while playing alone. This study is somewhat unique in that it actually peeked into portions of the brain of children while playing using fNIRS technology.
Käthe Kruse exhibited at the Nuremberg Spielewarenmesse (Toy Fair) again this year with a booth adjacent to the parent Hape booth in Hall 3A. They were showing a traditional line of dolls and soft toys continuing the over 100 year history of the brand. Also a popular part of the booth, is the new collection of classic dolls for collectors.
For many years, Kaethe Kruse produced a line of organic towel dolls, rattles, and small musicals but these were gradually phased out. Now, organic is making a comeback! You can find these new organic items under "Series | Organic" on the menu bar. We begin with the return of the organic Gugguli doll and two organic towel dolls.
