New Activity! Open Play in Downtown San Rafael at Cucu's PlayHouse

Cucu's Playhouse San Rafael

Marin Mommies presents a sponsored article from Cucu's Playhouse, San Rafael's new spot for music and movement classes in Spanish.

Cucu's PlayHouse just added a fun activity to their schedule that can be enjoyed by all Marin families with little ones 3 month to 6 years old, even if they are not interested in learning Spanish.

Starting this Friday, they will be hosting Open Play times for children to experience their space outside of regularly scheduled classes. Children will have access to educational, sustainable toys, not within a structured activity, but as a time for them to just play, using their creativity and imagination.

Their beautiful playroom is carefully rearranged for this activity, to encourage independence and concentration. Just the right amount of toys are made accessible, to make sure that the children do not feel overwhelmed and that they enjoy them fully, increasing the chances for deep play.

The selection of toys partially rotates every two weeks, which makes for an interesting and engaging experience that fosters kids' curiosity. The toys are placed on low, open shelves, to give them the power to decide which toys to pick.

Cucu's PlayHouse carries a hand picked selection of toy brands, chosen because of their sustainable practices, materials and design quality. They focus on toys that are designed with child development in mind. You will find great toys from NIC & Glückskäfer, PlanToys, Haba, Eco-Kids, Grapat and Sarah's Silks.

Materials: the vast majority of the toys are made out of wood, silk, and other natural materials. Pigments used on the colored toys are non toxic, water based dyes. A few of the Haba toys have small BPA free plastic parts for functionality needs.  

These are some of the toy categories available:
  • Baby learning toys
  • Push and pull toys
  • PlaySilks
  • Dolls and Dollhouse
  • Stacking and sorting toys
  • Active Play 
  • Pretend Play
  • Water Play
  • Musical toys
