Comments about Product:
My "child" is 16 now... I purchased these nearly a decade ago, thinking they were sooo expensive, but wanting to try a "different" sort of toy- One that might hold her attention longer than a week. Nearly 10 years later, & she is still "playing" with them... Over the years, these incredible, 3-ft. large squares of pure breezy silk, have transformed into butterfly wings, fairy princesses, pirates, forts (when tied onto table/chair legs), headbands, skirts, entire dresses (w/a safety pin), Roman Toga's, Shiek veils, flags, capes, princess & villains costumes, batman, used nearly every year in Halloween costumes & school plays, etc... Every time her little friends came over to play, they all went 1st for these silkies. Thrown into the "dress up basket" for storage (on those rare occasions we cleaned up!). Sometimes getting juice, kethcup, or Mom's make-up on them- Always easily washed/dryed in the regular laundry (I used a lingerie bag). These are by FAR the absolute best investment EVER- Uses limited only by your child's imagination. Recently, I've been asking my "grown up" daughter if she's ready to let these go... "No Mom, I still play with them!". I always think of these like the large cardboard box that expensive toys come in, where your kids play with the box, for far longer than the costly toy that came in it. These silks are very colorful, breezy- My daughter was just enchanted by the lightweight breeziness of the silk fabric. If you are on the fence, like I was, thinking how "costly" these are- I suggest just go ahead & try them... If nothing else, your kids will be enchanted w/ the silky, breezy texture of these silks, on their skin &/or dancing in the wind (tied to a stick)! My only regret it not buying them even earlier- These can be enjoyed by babies of all ages (under supervision of course!)- Happy holidays- Enjoy! PS- If you want to comparison shop, Google "play silks"... These are the best I found!
