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.

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 ?.

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…

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 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.

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!

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.

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 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.

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!

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!

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
