Sharing What We Learn From You

Because children learn while playing, our goal is to offer toys that invite open-ended play and encourage self-directed learning among all citizens of play. Hearing how much your child delights in playing with something you purchased from PlayopolisToys makes our hearts sing. We like that feeling. If something does not meet your expectations, we need to know. We strive to build positive relationships and provide responsive customer service. We’re here to work with you.

We want every child to experience the joys of play and to learn to play comfortably with others. Inclusive play brings children of varying abilities together, fostering awareness and respect for differences. When you share an alternative or adaptive use for a toy we sell, you create a ripple effect reaching farther than you know. We appreciate you making the effort and like sharing what we’ve learned. Let’s build a community of shared ideas and information.

Remember the expression “I’ll be there with bells on?” Except for jingle bells threaded onto the laces of toddler’s shoes, I’ve never seen anyone show up anywhere with bells on. Have you? Oops, I think I’m dating myself by mentioning laces on little kids’ shoes.

That could change with Jingle Band, four large sleigh bells attached securely to a colorful web band with Velcro closures. The adjustable band makes attaching around wrists or ankles simple, and as Anne Ward found, multiple bands joined end to end easily encircle a head. She reports her grandson “loves to jingle by shaking his head (no!).”

An orientation and mobility teacher attaches one just above the tip of the cane for beginning cane users. Let’s celebrate all the ways Jingle Band enlivens spirits with their joyful jingles. And please keep those ideas coming. Everyone has something valuable to share.
