Dramatic Play

“Dramatic play permits children to fit the reality of the world into their own interests and knowledge. One of the purest forms of symbolic thought available to young children, dramatic play contributes strongly to the intellectual development of children.” - Piaget 1962

Every Educaid offers a wonderful selection of dramatic play resources and props. They include dress ups for role play and creative play, including native New Zealand bird and butterfly wings, career and Kapa Haka dress ups.

Our extensive home corner resources include dolls (made in Europe) that are anatomically correct with fully sealed joints that allow bathing! The dolls prams and cradles are made of beech and birch wood and the baths are made in Germany. 

Our other home corner resources include props for playing ‘shop’, laundry props and brooms and an extensive collection of kitchenware made in Denmark that carry the Nordic Eco label symbolised by the Swan. The play food includes many fruit and vegetable props to model healthy eating.

Our small world section includes a large selection of people, animals and animal stations, vehicles and vehicle stations and mats.
