Horse-riding doll

We’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors lately due mostly to the weather but also to add to the realism of the horse-and-doll scenes.

Frances spends all of her doll time setting up scenarios but doesn’t actually play. Once the setup is achieved, she moves on to another scenario. There is no imagined interaction between the doll and her surroundings once everything is in place.

When she was being evaluated in 2013, the developmental paediatrician noted that her use of toys did not include storylines.

It’s subtle to the casual eye but very obvious once you know what you are seeing.
