Suggested Toys for PCIT Sessions

Below you will find toys commonly used by therapists in PCIT Sessions.  If you have additional toy suggestions, please contact us.

Important notes:

  • 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.
