Below you will find toys commonly used by therapists in PCIT Sessions. If you have additional toy suggestions, please contact us.
This is not an exhaustive list, these are toys often used by PCIT Therapists.
You do not need to purchase all these toys to conduct PCIT. Therapists often have a minimum of 10 toy options available at their clinic, with a variety of options available for younger and older children.
Many therapists have 25+ toy options, and a designated toy closet or cabinet (or toy room).
Several purchasing options exist for most toys. We have only listed one example below. For example, LEGOs are available in a wide variety of pieces (e.g., 200 pieces, 400 pieces) and themes (e.g., Star Wars).
Also, similar toys are available by different companies. For example, we have listed PicassoTiles below, but similar toys (e.g., Magna-Tiles) exist.
