As children we make contact with toys and dolls, they are extensions of ourselves in our everyday life. Most dolls and soft toys are seen by most of us as generically human with signifiers of cuteness, big eyes, and baby like expressions, features and proportions, all the things we can empathize with. Dolls fit within a symbolic order that says "alive." They fit in with the shapes and parts of our bodies; they are a representation for "human being". Through this representation we recognize life. Dolls function as keys to memories and emotions that we have inside us.
