Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.


Parents and experts alike tend to agree that doll play, a smaller part of imaginative play, is an intrinsic part of the development of little girls as well, increasingly, of little boys. And doll play is one of the oldest documented forms of play. Doll-like figures have been unearthed in ancient archeological sites and dolls are featured in some of the earliest literature. Family photographs often show children at play with dolls, and it is easy to see how they imagine the doll as a real baby, and duplicate parenting activities.
