Playsilks are the most versatile toy there are, besides a box and stick.
They are a natural prop for anything you can imagine:
*hot lava/a fire
*a cape, skirt, genie pants
*a headdress veil
*grass to feed your horse, water to sail a boat on
*a doll carrier
*soup to stir in a pot
*a scarf to dance with
*peek-a-boo a baby
*tie on a stick to make a flag
*take on trips to play in the car and hotel rooms
*hide under one
The possibilities are only limited by your imagination-and kids have plenty of that!
Playsilks are 90cm squares that come in a wonderful variety of colors.
Our silks are dyed with non-toxic, eco friendly dyes and have been safety tested for children. Hand wash and hang dry. Our Playsilks are hand washable with mild shampoo or dish soap. Hang dry and iron on medium to restore their shine.
Dimensions: 90 x 90 cm
Children have always used found items to create toys and props for imaginative play. Around the world they have used their mother’s scarves and pieces of cloth to make toys. Picking up a piece of cloth, a piece of wood, or a common housebound object allows children to use their imagination in a different way than giving them already formed objects. Putting their creative forces to work is important for creative thinking in adulthood.
A basket of colored playsilks is one of the best additions to a child’s playroom. It is amazing to see what children create with them.
Some children make costumes like capes, skirts, pants, hats, veils, animal tails and more. The next day the same silks become green grass for their toy animals to live on, blue water to sail the boats, or a rainbow can appear in the sky above them. Many children wrap their dolls in them or tie them on as a sling to carry a favorite animal or doll around in. They can be used to build forts with the sofa cushions, for a puppet show curtain, and for magic tricks.
