Timberdoodle's Review
Starry Night Playsilk
The best toys for babies are simple, uncomplicated ones that assist them in gaining important skills. So before your baby becomes enamored with battery-eating, limited-use, disposable toys, introduce him to the wonderfully durable natural material, silk.

Wispy enough for a tiny baby to manipulate, PlaySilks provide a wonderful sensory experience. The lovely texture and translucency of the PlaySilks make them ideal for "peek-a-boo."

As your babies grow, so does the versatility of their PlaySilks. Little children can don a cape and transform into royalty, superheroes, or dragon-slayers. Wrap a baby doll, hoist a flag, or just set the table for a tea party; there are unlimited hours of open-ended play with a PlaySilk.

Easily stuffed into a diaper bag or purse, PlaySilks make a soft, filmy, easy-to-pack comfy for traveling little ones.

More fun than I expected!

I got this with some points we had earned, and would not have spent the $ on it otherwise because I thought it may not be that much fun or get used for long, but I was wrong! This has been very popular with my baby boy and his 9 year old big sister, and will continue to be used for many years I imagine. I now want to get a bigger one from this same brand. Oh, and it’s way more durable than I thought real silk would be. Holding up well to playing/chewing/tying, etc (abuse!) 😅

Expensive but good quality

I have a different color of Sarah's Play Silk, but the sentiment is the same. The price makes me wince a bit but the quality is spot on, it doesn't fray or break even after trips in the washing machine and being beaten up by my curious young son. He loves the colors and watching the silk dance about. The silk is, well, silky smooth and good for sensory play.

I really don't like how expensive it is but I remember playing dress up and make believe with play clothes and silks for hours and this cloth will definitely last for a few years as my son grows up.

Sarah's Silks Playsilk - Starry Night

When I purchased our Sarah's Silks Playsilks, I remember thinking how expensive they were (we wanted a few color options and they add up) and almost not going through with it. But the truth is, these things get used every day and are worth it. They are superhero capes and princess gowns and villian hoods. They are backdrops for storytelling with toys, a blanket for a babydoll, or the tablecloth of a pretend picnic or tea party. And my littlest also just snuggles with them at naptime. These are crazy soft and luxurious and everyone loves them. They did spark a discussion and some research into how silk is made, and that wasn't as great. But I can't say a single thing negative about how great playsilks are for open-ended play! Even across age gaps, I recommend having some. My 3 year old, 6 year old and even my 9 year old still play with these.

Most Expensive Piece of Cloth I Own

I want my kids to have the best right?? So I spent $20 on a piece of silk. Everything everyone says is true... it's a great piece of silk. But really all I've used it for is a summertime lovey in the car seat - a cotton swaddle could have done the trick but I preferred how nice and compact this was in my diaper bag. So, yes, we've used it, but for imaginative play, not so much. When we're in the mode of imagination we use whatever blanket is nearest to us, and don't think to go grab this one. If I could go back and customize my infant kit differently I would definitely have spent that $20 on something far more useful.

It's helpful to hear when an item isn't a good fit for a family, as we always hope our customers and their little ones will love everything they get.
