What do you like about playsilks?
We would love to hear about how your kids play with silks and pretend.

I bought playsilks and capes to use at my daughter’s 4-year dress-up birthday party. She just turned 8, and she still plays daily with everything I bought 4 years ago for costumes, dressup, class performances and toy scene backdrops.
I love the smooth feel of them, how beautifully they take dyes and so fun to twirl and play with!
They are beautiful and my children love them!

I am an early childhood music educator and I love using playsilks for music exploration with students and my own children.

We have no play silks at the time but i am saving for one to drape over the playstands. She gets lots of sunlight in her room so i think she will love all the colors and enjoy the silky feel
My boys love silks. The most regular way the use them is to make landscapes for their woodland animal and gnome scenes. But lately my littlest likes to take one end of a large silk while I hold the other end and wrap himself up like a big burrito. I think he loves the feel of the silk and being tightly wrapped up. I hold him on my lap and pretend to take bites of my giant burrito, which causes lots of giggles :)

I haven’t had a chance to buy your playsilks yet but I’m sure my little ones would live to play peekaboo and go camping under those beautiful rainbow colors ?.
My children play with playsilks every day. They love to use them as capes, picnic blankets, blankets for their favorite stuffed animals, headbands, gloves, masks…
I especially love to travel with play silks. They are dress up and toys providing hours of imaginative fun, and pack down to nothing!
We use them to dress up and to decorate forts!
My son loves peekaboo!
My boys use them for capes, magic shows, space exploration and fort building, just to name a few!
My son loves to use hem to dress up and to dance around!
I love that the play silks allow my girls to use their imagination, they are beautiful, & can be used for so many things from dress up to forts & even gift wrap.

I love how creative play silks encourage kids to be. They come up with 100 ways to use them…most of which never occurred to me. And, that also allows them to be pretty timeless and used for years!
My oldest is 9 now and we’ve had your silks in our home for many years. They’ve had the swords (girls like swords too!) and fairy wings. They’ve built forts and made outfits. I wouldn’t recommend bike riding with a cape on. Just ask my middle son!
These days, it’s mostly my youngest – a special needs little guy who enjoys them. It’s a sensory thing for him. He likes how they feel, he likes how the world looks when looking through them…
We love everything about our silks. The colors are beautiful and they feel so nice. Just recently our rainbow baby’s rainbow silk was ripped to shreds by our dog. We would love to replace it!
The simplicity of these brilliant silks is unparalleled. We can use them for everything from representing the elements to transforming into magical creatures. We capture the wind, float on squares of sunlight and dance among moonbeams. The silks bring us closer to nature.
our kids use silks to dress up, make forts, wrap babies and gifts…
We love all your playthings! Silks, crowns, skirts – they all get used over and over.
My three girls play with our one blue silk non stop! It amazes me to see how many different ways it gets played with and how something so simple can lend hand to hours of fun, laughter, and creativity.
my kids love your silks! thanks for the chance!
Our silks are used constantly, most often as capes but also recently as a playhouse roof, a fox tail, and the top to an Olympic torch!
My children use their silks for so many things but one of the current top ones is carefull wrapping toys etc in silks and then presenting someone in the fasmily with the ‘gift’

Our silks are rarely in their basket at the end of the day.. My kids use them for dress-up, doll cradles, pretend (or real..) picnic/tea-party blankets, fort building. It’s nice to watch them have fun.
I love that fun video!! We play with you silks doing Everything!! Dress up, hiding, tent making, quiet cubby hole building, baby doll carriers, dancing, special lands and oceans for Imaginations to explore….
We love Sarah’s silks! My kids love looking at all the beautiful photographs on your site, also.
I love silk!
My LO’s love to use them as scenes for there animals and peg people. They also love them to us as placemats for ther pretend food.
We use them for picnics and being a queen mostly.
We love to use play silks for dress up, making scenes for our nature table, or spreading out on the floor to make a river or grassy knoll :)
I love Sarah’s playsilks for my girls – beautiful colors, endless ways to play with them, and they take up no storage space.
I love the imagination and joy children have when playing with something that simple like this colorful silks
I love the way play silks can and are anything you imagine. the favorites here are playscapes and dress up.
Sarah’s playsilks have provided my children with hours of open-ended creative play. I love how playsilks have nurtured their imaginations, transforming from all manner of dress up to doll clothes, puppets, forts, flags, and bedding. Thank you for offering such a great product!
My 2 and 4 year old love to dress up and have dance parties!!
I love that my kids silks are used for so many different things from snuggle blankets to baby doll blankets.
It took my son awhile to get into playing with the silks set that I purchased from Sarah’s Silks, but now they become essential backdrops for the scenes he creates – water & oceans, farmland, cliffs, or mountains. They also transform him into a magnificent bird :) They are wonderful!
We have two girls, 2 & 4, who got silks for their birthday. They use them as flags for when they dance, as superhero capes, nests for their dolls, tutus, and that’s just the beginning. Sarah’s silks have been a wonderful addition to our play life!
My girl has a couple silks now and in the last few days they have served as a waterscape, a dress and a cozy nest for her wee one. I love to see what her creativity comes up with!
Our baby’s rainbow mini-silk is her favorite toy. She loves watching the colors float over her and feeling the softness when I brush it on her, and she gets her biggest smiles. She is 4 months old and the silk is also her favorite thing to practice grabbing. I know she will continue to love it and I can’t wait to get more!
Sarah my children of ages 11, 8, and 3 play with your silks every single day. Yesterday they made a flag with a pole and the yellow one an it’s hanging above our sofa. WE were studying the direct democracy in Athens/ greece and they were sure the Romans had a yellow flat :D
There is nothing that compares to Sarah’s playsilks. My daughters used them for years in their imaginative and creative play. Alas, my daughters are now grown up. I plan to someday put the silks in the crate of treasured toys, which are being saved for future grand kids. But, for now I have taken the silks to school with me. I am a school librarian for children aged 3-11. I use the silks often to help bring the literature part of my curriculum to life. One of my favorite lessons to date was using the silks with the book Color Dance by Ann Jonas. The transparency of the silks and a light helped illustrate how primary colors mix to make new colors. Then we danced around with the silks just as the characters do in the book. It was a favorite lesson for my Kindergarteners. Sarah’s Silks have become a wonderful teaching tool that inspires creativity and imagination for my students. Thank you for such a wonderful, creative and enduring product.
My one year old daughter was introduced to play silks in our music class. She goes wild when the silk bin comes out and loves waving the silks to the butterfly song!
I love that they can be anything. One day it’s a love, the next a baby blanket for a doll, the next a sling to carry the doll, then a cape for a superhero, a picnic blanket for a tea party, a sarong, a magical pillow cover, a parachute for a pony, a hiding spot for guess what I’m hiding, an eye cover for hide and go seek (no peeking!) – and that was just last week.
We love Sarah’s playsilks! We have a small variety, but would like to add more! They are great for all kinds of imagination play, my daughter uses them for dress up, baby blankets and more…!
We don’t own any play silks yet but I am hoping we can purchase some soon- my kids love to play dress up and the boys are asking for superhero capes, while our daughter enjoys hats and skirts. They are also all fans of kites; we might try the ribbon wands too!
Our beautiful playsilks are as versatile as our children’s minds are creative! They can be dresses, capes, veils; doors, ceilings, curtains; baby slings, knapsacks, picnic blankets; tents or balloons; bathtime mermaids’ tails; or a soft, silky comfort at bedtime (esp on warm summer nights). Thank you Sarah and team for sharing your wonderful creations with the world.
I love play silks because they encourage so much creativity! My daughter loves using them in dress up in so many ways; lately her favorite way of wearing them is using 2 to make ‘Princess Jasmine’ pants.
Your silks are not only beautiful, but versatile. We adore them! So much so, that even mama has a few! (That would be me!)
These are the best silks! We’ve been playing with them for years :)
My boys love to wear their playsilks, use them as blankets for their pet dogs, and throw their playsilks in the air and pretend they’re fireworks. All kinds of fun stuff!
I have 2 girls who find all different uses for silk. They’re capes, they’re dresses, they’re casts for injured patients. We love silks! My husband and I use them to cover the tv, when we want it out of sight.
My granddaughter loved playing peek a boo, has enjoyed the silk texture with her fingers and also used to gnaw on when teething. No end to the silks’ uses.
My son is getting to an age that his imagination is taking off :) I think he would love the silks for dress ups and fort building. There are just so many posibilities!
My kids love to play dress up, make forts and use them as picnic blankets. Looking forward to the fall when we will do more outside play! Thank you.
Since recieving our playsilks, my son has been a superhero, draping/ them between chairs and pretending it’s at shop and play ingen peek a boo with his little sister. They are just great and versatile.
My 3 year old loves to wrap things up in the silks (like stones, shells, acorns or other special finds) and give them to people as ‘presents’ to open. My 6 month old loves to wrap them around her fingers. Wonderful gifts for children!
There are a billion things my boys use these for in their play! They especially love them as superhero capes!
We love the endless possibility and magic in something so simple. The wonderful tactile qualities and versatility this single product brings to our home are manifold; a single silk is regularly a house, a forest, the sea, a cape, an invisibility cloak, lava, a kitchen, a pool, a parachute for dolls (I could go on)!! What other single toy can encompass so many roles and give this varied joy and encourage so much creative play?! Surely these should be a staple in every home.

I don’t have kids but I have seen Magician Ron enchant many kids performing magic using your amazing silks and one time he pulled them all out and hung them on my umbrella in front of my shop to air them out and I was completely enchanted by how light and beautiful they are! It was completely enchanting and amazing. I’m in awe just remembering them all waving in slow motion and he has So so many! It was completely magical! Keep up the great work!
My daughter uses her (one) playsilk, and a few old silk scarves of mine to make wings, skirts, diapers and blankies for dolls, and her favorite—rigging them up make swings for herself and her dolls. Thanks for the opportunity to win a gift card!
Love the nightsky and rainbow baby blankets, the rainbow skirt, the creativity, simplicity and aesthetic appeal of the lovely dyed silks.
We lost our home and all possessions that did not fit in a suitcase. I kept our Sarah Silks butterfly dress ensemble and ribbon wand. Watching my daughter play with them for 5 years now is such a reminder of what little possessions children need to play. Whenever I mourn our material losses, I think of her twirling in her silks as happy as can be and it teaches me a valuable lesson every time.
Our child sleeps with her Rainbow silk every night. She gently smells and pets it and it soothes her to sleep. We wrap it around lavender sachets every so often and she loves the smell and softness. It is simply the best “blankie” ever!
Lovely video! My “big kids” still love to use their silks! They are used more for head coverings and baby wraps in pretend play and as water and land in scenes with wooden trains and boats.
My 4 grandchildren love Sarahssilks. They play and dance with them all the time. The 3 year old dresses her doll up with them. Sarah’s silks are amazing
My oldest loves to dance around with her silks. She also makes capes for her and outfits for her stuffed animals. My middle child loves making forts with his. My youngest needs her own since her sibling’s are pretty beat up- but recently she has enjoyed peekaboo, tug of war, and having them fall on her head. Ages 9, 3, 6 months
Silks offer such gorgeous color and beautiful textures for young children. Play silks offer such a rich canvas for imaginative play.
For babies: the soft touch and bright colors. For older kids: the possibilities for play and imagination.
Our child is a HSP and silk is one of the only two fabrics she can stand touching! She plays with her silks non-stop “making” them into play animals, dolls, whatever she dreams up. Would love to share some pics with you. We are so grateful for your wonderful silks! Thank you!!
I love that playsilks are perfect for anywhere my kids’ imagination takes them. They are used for dress up, forts, parachutes, capes and creating any play scene. They are our only toy that truly is used every single day.
I love the endless possibilities of play that my kids come up with. We only have the small squares and the kids use them as clothes to dress up their animals and babies. I’d love to get some bigger silks as we don’t have any yet! Good luck everyone! !
My daughter loves her rainbow silk. It is a skirt, a hat, a baby blanket, and on and on. I am about to teach in a classroom for the first time in 14 years. My PreK students will be able to do so much with some silks.
My 6 yo loves to use them for storytelling, dress up and magic tricks. My 3 mo loves to mouth her rainbow scarf teether and blanket.
My two year old uses cloths as bankets for her doll or as scarves. She would so love a set of playsilks!
My two year old uses cloths as bankers for her doll or as scarves. She would so love a set of playsilks!
My daughters wear them in every way imaginable. On their heads as veils or pirate scarves. On their necks as scarves and capes. On their waists as fairy skirts, princess dressed or just “fancy girls.” ;)
My daughter and I put a blue play silk over our heads together and pretend like we’re under water. I ask her what kinds of fish she can see.
At our home, playsilks become capes, head scarves, sashes for pirates and ninjas, pools of water, skies above, and soft lovies.
My 22 month old loves to simply wave them around, pretend they are blowing in the wind by blowing on them, and play peek a boo. I am really, really hoping to get more for landscapes and dress up too!
We love Sarah’s Silks at our house! Our kids are 5, 3, and newest addition due at the end of the year.
My kids love to use the silks as capes, and fairy costumes. I love the colors and texture—they are so beautiful!
Love the soft texture and the creativity that comes with the silks! Hours and years of play!
We love silks because it is one of the toys that spans the ages of our kids from 2 months to 16 years…they all play with them ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
We love silks because they can be anything! We love having different sizes and different colors. They are something that can be used for such a long time – peekaboo with babies to costumes for older children. They are so great for imaginative play!
Our silks are capes and gowns, but also emergency medical bandages, stews and desserts in the play kitchen, snow and rainstorms, the fiery breath of dragons, and more…something new every day!
My kids (5 and 10mo) play with these all the time. They are capes, blankets, magic silks and peek-a-boo necessities.
I love the versatility of the silks. Today the children were making them into nests for their toy birds, yesterday they were puddles on the floor to hop over, the day before they were capes. It never ends!
The kids always find some new way to play with them. They are great for the imagination!
I love the vivid colors and the luxurious texture. We don’t yet own any Sarah’s Silks but love to dance with them at Music Together class (and play peekaboo!). I imagine my little one would also love wearing them as capes and building forts with them!
My daughter got the playsilks sets on her birthday and doesn’t stop playing with them! It’s so nice how they can imagine and play in so many different ways with the silks.
I love the colors. Very bright and beautiful for kids. My children do not currently own any Sarah’s silks but we would love to get some
They are so soft and the perfect size to be almost anything. They are tents, capes, ghost costumes, dance scarves, dresses, so many things. I ordered them after hearing reviews that people loved them, but was skeptical. They were better than I expected, I can’t believe how much my kids love them, and how much I love them!
My boys love to wear them as capes. We have used them as part of a fort. My youngest plays peek a boo with it. We also wave them around to the beat of music. I’ve also used them to swaddle.
My older kiddos love to use our playsilks for capes, belts, headdresses, fairy wings, or earthly elements like water and fire. My babe is loving them for games of peekaboo! :-)
Skirts, capes, blankets, beautiful and inspiring playthings!
They are great for dress up…capes, wings, dresses, belts, etc.
We love play silks at our house! We have a few that have been very loved by the kids here. Music time, dress up, blankies for babies, the list is endless!
We love to use them as capes, parachutes, magical cloaks… It’s endless. Great product!
