I just wondered if anyone else is enjoying the development of imaginary playmates with their toddlers? Dd has made a friend named Alice who has a friend named Argon. Alice is very small and doesn't talk very well so she needs dd's help to speak. Argon is Alice's other friend and he usually accompanies her on her visits. Alice has become a wonderful playmate and she actuall helps me from time to time as well. I think they met at "school" (another fabricated place.) They are in the same class. Mrs. Bean's class that is. In Mrs. Beans class they do all kinds of things like finger paint, sing, and eat candy. She also has to take the bus to "school" but often misses it and has to return home. I'm loving this delightful little world she has dreamed up and dh and I take great pleasure in playing along with her. So, anyone else have a toddler who has an imaginary world?

Ds has an imaginary friend that is a shark, he lives out in the bay with his dad, but visits here a lot.<br><br>
He also went with us to Kansas this summer, but was sick there. I guess sharks don't do so well in Kansas!

dd1 has always had her imaginary playmate "casey" who has now given birth to ten children. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> there have been other playmates come and go, but casey has always been number one.<br><br>
now dd1 is 4 and said the other day how casey isn't actually a "real" person. but still we talk about her from time to time. and now that dd2 is 2 1/2 yrs she is getting more into the imaginary friends.<br><br>
it's so sweet and i believe such a healthy expression of a creative mind.

Ds started this about 2 months ago. I LOVE it. His friend is "little ma ma", she apparently is a teeny tiny version of our dog, "big ma ma". Little Ma Ma(our dog's name is Maddie, so it doesn't sound like mama) is always with us, even if we forget to bring her. She can fly, usually alongside the car. She is cloned into the hundreds, because Uncle Mike can step on her and ds just takes another out of his pocket. She eats like a baby horse, out of our hands, and not like a dog, out of a bowl. There are very specific rules for her, things she can and cannot do. The best part is watching him get other people to play along with it. Nothing like watching our single 30something friends reach out to take an imaginary dog and play with it to melt your heart!<br><br>
He also introduced himself to a waitress as Buzz Lightyear the other night. Says he's a space ranger and has wings. He plays dangerous jumping games with my dad that freak dh out. But hey, he's ok, he's Buzz Lightyear, he can fly!
