Play silks are super packable and make an excellent travel toy! Pick up a few in vibrant colors! I am happy to do custom orders if you’d like to purchase a set of 3 (or more than 3). Please note that silks are individually hand-dyed and therefore no two are ever exactly identical. It is normal for there to be a slight variation of colors across silks.
If silks need washing, hand wash them with a gentle detergent or even baby shampoo, then hang to dry. Ironing them is unnecessary, but they get extra soft and silky if ironed!
Play Silks are dyed in a rainbow of colors, so please check out my shop page for all the color options.
You can also purchase a set of 3 silks in colors of your choice for a discounted price of $42.
Passive toys make active children. As a mom to two toddlers, I have learned this over the past several years. I've also learned that just about all children are attracted to shiny toys loaded with bells and whistles. Soon after my first daughter was born, it became clear that I much preferred the quiet, simple, good-looking toys to the noisy, bright ones. (And to be honest, my aversion to plastic toys that don't require much input from children is a bit of a sticky subject in our household.)
However, over the past few years, I have had a lot of fun watching my girls and their peers spend hours enjoying their simple, open-ended toys-- many of them Waldorf inspired-- independently and together. It's a real joy to see their little imaginations hard at work, and these toys leave plenty of room for that. An added bonus is that the toys are largely made with natural materials, such as wood and silk, and won't be an eyesore when they are strewn across your home!
The collection at Grace + Eve is made up of whimsical, natural, open-ended toys that will spark children's imagination and inspire hours of creative play. Children will find dozens of ways to play with each of the items in the shop. I make all the toys in the collection by hand, so they are one-of-a-kind, completely non-toxic, and made using natural materials whenever possible.
