Holiday Toy Guide

November 29, 2017

With the holidays fast approaching we are often asked for our suggestions for appropriate toys and gifts. Here are a few of our favorites! (Note that Theraplay is not affiliated in any way with these products, we just love them!)

Notice that none of these toys require batteries, play music, or have flashing lights. At Theraplay we believe in bringing it back to basics when it comes to play and letting children explore and create from their minds.
