Assalam aleykoum warahmatullah wabarakatuh,I start all post apologising if my English is not perfect but I’m French living in UK for a year and a half.
Today i am talking about Dolls.
Every girl like To play With Dolls, pretending To be a mum, learn thought game and identification.
Thats why I bought Aamina.
I think you all heard about this doll, read some reviews or saw some videos.
Bi-lingual Arabic/English 16″ soft plush doll that speaks( teaching Islamic greetings, surra el Fatiha with translations) and sings in English (Islamic rhymes about Allah~ subhanahu wa ta’ala, prophet Muhammad ~salallahu alayhi wasalam, salat, 5 pillars of Islam…) with Interactive hands, feet and nose (sneeze and say “al hamdulillah”).
My daughter has 7 months. I used it since birth, pressing for her, repeating everything and singing the songs along with the doll. It makes her smile, al hamdulilah.
I start to read to her aswell since birth.
Although now it a little bit hard as she always want to eat the books !
What I like about this doll: very educative, child can learn the meaning and when to use words like Al hamdulilah, in sha Allah, fi amanilah , subhan Allah. They learn what to say before reading and the first sura.
What I don’t like about this doll: I think that she is wearing a little too much make up for a doll. Why dolls always wear make up, aren’t we pretty without it ?
I aswell started dolls makeover and I think I will continue, because I want her to be able to identify herself as a Muslim while playing with dolls.
And I think it’s good that some Muslims women started making hijabi dolls as we only had one doll option in western countries. Blonde with short clothes.
Children learn about everything by playing. So I will definitely create accessories for her dolls, even the blonde’s if my family will gift her one.
I just ordered this one (I love eyes shut’s dolls) and the rabbit ears are easy to grab for a baby.
And blue with white dots cotton fabric to make her a legging and her name initial on the top.
I remember when I was a child I always wondered why my blonde doll didn’t have any underwear… Funny thoughts… But as I had to wear them why she didn’t ?
I post when my baby is asleep and I finished my chores, so be patient it’s sunnah ❤️
