What Are Interactive Baby Dolls Used For?

Interactive baby dolls are used to teach childcare and parenting skills, create awareness about child abuse and prevent teen pregnancy. These lifelike dolls exhibit infant behaviors that challenge practicing caregivers to recognize and meet a baby's ongoing needs before taking on the responsibility of raising a child.

Settings on the computerized interactive dolls allow teachers to set crying intervals and create real-world simulations of fussy babies who cry every few hours and require soothing attention. The dolls are equipped to record events that are not appropriate for a baby's care including shaking, unchanged diapers, inadequate head support and failure to keep the baby safely and comfortably dressed for the environment.
