PLAY

Open Ended Play

Put children in the driver’s seat! Their imagination comes to life as they create and explore waytoplay by their own rules.

No Screens No Wires

100% unplugged fun. Waytoplay lets children explore the power of imagination. It’s a gift that lasts a lifetime.

Open Ended Play

No scoreboard, rules, points, levels or end bosses. If your child can imagine, they can create and play to their heart’s content. 

No rules, maps or models. Simply imagine, create and play.

Play Anywhere

Let the imagination lead the way. Waterproof, flexible and durable, waytoplay can be enjoyed indoors and out. The bath, the garden, from the playroom to the beach.
