Sarah's Silks Playsilk - Rainbow
According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, 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.
Inspire Creativity & Imagination
Simple and natural, PlaySilks have been recommended for nearly one hundred years to encourage children to use their imagination and creativity. The sumptuously soft feel of PlaySilks is ideal for developing babies. Wispy enough for a tiny baby to manipulate, PlaySilks provide a wonderful sensory experience. They are great for "peek-a-boo," and the lovely texture and translucency of the PlaySilk makes it ideal for "hiding and finding" games with your baby. Easily stuffed into a diaper bag or purse, PlaySilks make a soft, filmy, easy-to-pack comfy for traveling little ones.
Sarah's Silks Provide Hours of Imaginative Play
As your babies grow, so does the versatility of their PlaySilks. Little girls can become princesses, and little boys can become 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.
This Natural Toy Is Remarkably Durable
Silk is remarkably durable and can withstand years of play. We recommend hand-washing with warm water and a mild soap, then drying in a dryer set on low for a few minutes to restore the softness and remove wrinkles. For some odd reason, many children enjoy washing their PlaySilks and hanging them outside to dry. It is a wonderfully peaceful experience, so let them do this often!
Light, flowing silk. Hand hemmed. Dyed with non-toxic dyes in the USA. Packaged in a lively paper wrapper that gives ideas for play. Safety tested for ages 3+.
We have other playsilks, but Sarah's Silks are probably the most durable of them. The rainbow silk is getting a lot of play!
I love that this playsilk inspires creativity. My 4 year old daughter loves playing with it as a cape. And my baby loves playing peek-a-boo with it. She just coos at the colors with excitement.
I have bought this for boys and girls ages 2-4 and it is a huge hit. This is great for any tot to play. It has been used as a cape, baby blanket, and so much more!
These play silks are so versatile for open ended play. Everyone just loves them. The Sarah's Silk Playsilk in rainbow is gorgeous, so soft against the skin and a delight to play with. Kids will play with them in their own ways, from dress up capes to running outside trailing them behind and spinning with them. For more ideas on play silk uses, I love the style of storytelling Waldorf schools use, where they use these as backdrops and little wooden figures to tell stories. We love to do that with our silks!
I really wanted to buy this for my daughter when she was a baby still, bu I wasn't able to until recently (she is now 16 months old). I'm pregnant so I figured if she didn't like it the new baby would get use out f it. I really underestimated the versatility of the silk! The kids (she has two older siblings) all use this for a variety of things, and I love seeing them get so excited about a toy that doesn't operate on batteries or make obnoxious sounds. Great for 6 months-5 years ;)
