You play a imaginative theater. If you have a toddler, I am sure his or her imagination is way beyond. If you play a imaginative performance, I am sure, your child will be entertained for a while.
You play a theater with your child favourite teddy or toy. You can do miracles with the favourite character and you can send message you want to your child to do what is expected from him or her – for example teddy tells your child how important it is to brush a teethe. How important it is to say thank you and why this is important and polite.
