Pretend Play

SORT BY:
Keep children occupied and happy with pretend-play toys they can use to act out their favorite stories and fantasies. Each toy is rated for a particular age group to keep your students safe. Multi-packs make these toys cost-effective for schools, daycare centers, and church nurseries.

Encourage Imagination
Participating in pretend play stimulates a child's development, and these toys provide all the characters, clothing, and activity sets that children need to bring their stories to life. Children can wear costumes or use puppets to act out the books you read, helping them to understand vocabulary words and story development. Students can embellish plain canvas puppets as their favorite book characters, allowing you to combine art and literature in one lesson.

Boost Social Skills
Pretend play brings children together in groups, making it easier for shy children to participate and teaching everyone to share. Combine the toys with lessons from early childhood resource books to teach children about other cultures or demonstrate appropriate interactions with individuals who have special needs.

Child-Safe Materials
These pretend-play toys include soft materials and age-appropriate details to protect children while they play, helping you keep a room full of little ones safe at all times. Costumes include hook-and-loop closures so that children can put the clothing on easily and safely.

Classroom Sets
Stock your classroom with budget-friendly multi-packs of costumes, blocks, modeling dough, and puppets to give children plenty of options for pretend play. Setting up several play stations around the room keeps children busy and reduces conflicts, allowing you more time for one-on-one teaching and interaction.
