Playing with dolls allows a girl to imagine what it feels like to be someone else. A girl identifies with the doll and pretends all kinds of scenarios that may or may not reflect her own life. Girls often work out their struggles through the medium of the doll and the imaginative play they create around the doll. Girls develop their feelings and social skills by playing with dolls, too.
Doll play can be a fun way to try to work out how people interact with each other. While imagining conversations between herself and the doll and between dolls, girls try to understand what is behind what people say to each other. These pretend conversations may not represent a girl's conscious understanding, but may express her underlying feelings around events and situations. She is trying to find her way in the world of social interactions.
Young children use their imaginations to explore what it feels like to live another person's life. If a child plays with a doll that looks like someone different from herself, she may develop a deeper understanding of people who look different. She may learn that despite outward appearances, a doll is a doll and a person is a person, too.
But the main reason girls play with dolls is because playing with dolls is fun. If it stops being fun, girls will simply move on to playing with something else.
