• The name Playapy (play-au-pee) was created by combining the words play and therapy. It is a resource and support system created to bridge gaps in communication and foster the understanding of child development particularly for individuals involved in the lives of children with developmental concerns.

    Pediatric occupational therapist, Amy Baez, created Playapy to open the doors of communication with parents by sharing the ideas and resources available to therapists and also creating products that make play fun, simple, and smart. In doing so, she realized her purpose in life is to bring awareness to the importance of children to learn through play. Read more about her Passion for Play here.
