Like most families that I know, we celebrate Easter with our family and our children receive Easter baskets. We have always told our children the real reason we celebrate Easter, and have shied away from the Easter Bunny story. When I am trying to find goodies to fill the Easter baskets, it often becomes a challenge to find anything that is the least bit "religious." I have found Resurrection Eggs and some Christian stickers, but usually all you can find as a toy is an Easter bunny, duck or baby chick. This year, I have the perfect gift for the Easter basket, the Jesus Sees Us Doll and Book!
Never heard of it before? Neither had I until I was offered the opportunity to review it. My family fell in love with the wonderful book and the little ones loved having a tangible item that represents Jesus. I had never seen a Jesus doll before, and I love it! Want to know more? Here is the story behind the doll and book.
How do you introduce your child to Jesus?
Imagine your children took the same interest and wonder in Jesus and the Christian message as they did in princesses, fairies, and elves… Jesus Sees Us is a packaged Jesus Christ doll that has the same comforting power as a child’s favorite toy or blanket, but is rooted in lessons that last a lifetime. Children respond to the comfort of tangible items when they are young, so why not make that item Jesus and the comfort He gives to ignite their faith? The accompanying book is a tool to assist you in engaging your child and starting the conversation about Jesus’ teachings.
By the time a child turns three years old, he or she already has the capability to relate to Jesus. Children can understand that, like them, Jesus was a baby with parents who loved Him. They can understand that Jesus grew up to be a man who loved everyone and taught people to do the same. Children become excited and inquisitive when they can master these facts, ultimately making them more open to deeper conversations and ideas about faith.
The Jesus Sees Us doll is an integral part of fostering your child’s initial introduction to Jesus. Even though we talk to our children about Jesus or take them to Sunday services, they are not always able to understand the importance of the Christian message. Jesus Sees Us is a tool that makes Jesus, His teachings, and the concept of faith both relatable and positive to young children by introducing Him as the loving and forgiving presence in our lives. The doll becomes the tangible connection to the stories and lessons in the book. He is the touchable source of comfort that a child can relate to. The Jesus Sees Us doll has a soft body and a warm, welcoming face. His arms and hands are open, inviting your child to hold him, engage with him, and pray with him. The Jesus Sees Us doll allows your child to “play out” the valuable and timeless lessons of the Bible.
The Jesus Sees Us Doll and Book is a wonderful way to get your kids interested in learning more about Jesus. I have noticed that they will use the doll and play out some of the Bible stories. The Jesus doll is also perfect for them to sleep with. It is comforting to them to have something tangible to hold on to at night and know that Jesus is with them.
