The psychology of play

Yesterday, i was very stressed, and I decided To change Aimee.

I felt so much better, the stress just melted away, as I prepared and changed her. I wondered what was happening, so I looked it up .

It seems adults need to make time for play, because it releases endorphins (happy hormones) . For example, men with train sets, desk toys (like those magnetic balls, etc) and board games, or even word searches, or anything else that just lets you relax, and de stress.

This gives the brain chance to relax, and when playing games with others it is very therapeutic and allows for bonding and communication.

This might be why clubs that have game afternoons etc do so well!

yet another haul and a photo shoot !!

All the clothes that I bought recently!

I had a doll clothes trying on session yesterday, since I bought more clothes on Friday! I really should stop buying baby clothes. Im running out of room! storage is at a premium and its getting even harder with my new hobby!!! Im cramming everything into my workroom and its getting a little too cosy LOL!!

I hope you like the pictures. Here’s how I am storing my girls:

This is actually a wash basket, since it is the easiest and cheapest option. Of course Id love to have a proper cot to show them off in but I just don’t have the room!!!

How do you store/display your babies? Id love to know!!!

I watched a brilliant video by Raendom Reborns on Youtube, and in it she tells some important information on storing reborns.

The Video Link is :https://youtu.be/pSySs8xLeaM

She also links to some articles about the subject.The best one in my humble opinion is :

This one

I hope all this info helps! it helped me (my wash basket has holes and is covered with a muslin cloth to keep the plastic away from direct contact with my girls.)

take care!
