Pretend Play Toys

Pretend play is an important part of your child's development. Nurture your little one's imagination with playhouses, puppets and play tents at Walmart for less.

One of the most common ways that children pretend is by mimicking their parents or other adults. For this reason, toys that resemble real-world objects, like toy phones, play food or plastic tools encourage your child's imagination. Generally, pretend play begins at around 18-24 months and continues well into elementary ages.

A playhouse or play tent is great place for kids to put their imagination to work and play "house" with their dolls, action figures or stuffed animals. With a toy shopping cart and play food, your little one can go "grocery shopping" and even pay with fake money at a toy cash register. Complete the collection with a toy kitchen where your toddler can cook and bake to their heart's content. With an Easy-Bake or Lalaloopsy oven your little one can even whip up some real treats for the whole family.

Arts and crafts are another great way to spark your child's imagination. Art supplies like crayons, paints, Play-doh and clay allow more freedom of expression for the young mind while crafts like needlepoint or birdhouse kits are more instruction and goal oriented. Both of these elements are important at different stages of development. Make sure to check the age restrictions of art supplies and crafts to get a better idea of what is best for your child.
