Rose has started to understand that she can pretend.
We learned this when she decided that an unused wall plug timer was a camera. The timer is the same shape and had a dial on the front like a camera. I love to see her imagination grow and it was super cute to have her “take” pictures of things. What I didn’t like was thinking that she was going to poke her eye out.
Pretend play is very important for learning but I would prefer Rose to do it with these awesome toys instead.
