​Pretend Play

2016 Apr 1st

Whether your child is pretending to be a Fairy or a Super hero, they are testing out what their worldview could be! Little dolls, fairy wings, capes and hats allow a very simple item to change a child’s perspective. At BC Playthings we have a large variety of items that allow your child’s imagination to develop! Many a child tries out different roles they witness in their world whether it is the role of a “Mommy or Daddy,” or a “Doctor or Wizard.” Having a few items in a “Tickle Trunk” for a child to explore is a mainstay! Remember the time when a simple piece of silk floated like liquid feathers while you raced around the yard – All while bubbles were blown by a grandparent? See the magic happen for the whole family with a change of a hat, or the addition of a dress or tool kit!

We have our curated Sarah’s Silks on hand and for ordering as well as the Great Pretenders costumes! Sparkly jewelry and real wooden tool kits can be used to explore your child’s world and their many places in it! BC Playthings encourages your family to explore their “inner super hero” or “inner princess” with a variety of face paints as well! Use our Caran D’Ache watercolour crayons to change a cute little face into whatever they so choose! With a dip of the crayon in clean water, the crayon becomes a simple means of creating masks, personas, and possibilities!
