Pop Its

Think of how much some of us enjoy popping bubble wrap and then take it to a whole new level. In this reusable version, silicon bubbles are able to be “popped” over and over again. It comes in different shapes, sizes and colors and is lightweight and easy to carry with you. This is a great way to move that nervous energy into the motion of popping. This is an item we include in our celebration baskets for older youth who are new to our Playhouse.


Kinetic Sand and Water Beads

Parents and children can enjoy hours of imaginative play together! Complete cognitive tasks to encourage thought, perception and knowledge in your child. Hands-on play is a great way to prepare your child for school! Place your self-contained bin on a towel to prevent mess while you are scooping, digging and playing with these fun items.

Manhattan Toy Company Winkel Rattle

The Winkel has its characteristic maze of soft tubes that weave and wind their way around a soft center cube that houses a subtle rattle. The cool thing about this maze of tubes is that it always lands upright no matter where your baby throws it! It makes a great sensory teething toy from birth and up, and then turns into a fun and motivating toy for tummy time and sitting. We include these in our celebration baskets to new families of a baby with Down syndrome!



This engineering toy stimulates problem solving, motor skills, and shape recognition; perfect for school-aged games group activities.


The Playhouse LOVES getting gifts too!

Consider visiting our Amazon Wish List and getting a gift for the Playhouse on behalf of that person that has everything they could ever need. You can also share the wish list with your family and friends and ask them to purchase an item in honor of you in place of a traditional gift.


*please note, we did not receive any compensation for mentioning the above items. These are items we personally use in the Playhouse that we find therapeutic and educational. Please consider setting GiGi’s Playhouse Canton as your Amazon Smile charity this holiday season.
