Soft skill is the ability to interact comfortably with others. Soft skills can also be interpreted as personal attributes that can affect relationships, communication and interaction with others as well as skills about personal and social life. It takes conscious effort, commitment and ongoing training to improve individual soft skills. Soft skills may be learned, but not by learning like going to school, but by interacting with others and practicing environmental sensitivity. Therefore, soft skills need to be trained from an early age because at this time the development of language skills, creativity, social awareness, emotional, and intelligence runs very fast and becomes the foundation for further development. Children are very close to toys. Children can spend most of their time playing because the world of children is indeed the world of play. The most effective learning for children is through play activities, but not all play tools are able to train children's soft skills. Games that can train children's soft skills are pretend play. Pretend play is a form of game that contains elements of pretending. In pretend play, the play equipment used will support the "pretend" element. Through pretend play, a child will make efforts to mental representation, meta-cognition, interaction, communication and empathy. This can be used as capital to develop psychological, social and communication abilities that are elements of soft skills. If the child plays pretend play repeatedly, it will be able to strengthen the soft skill stimulation in him.
