I have two playstands. One is downstairs with a canopy, and the other is in Lucia's room without a canopy. In the first one, I put a lot of Waldorf toys on the shelves and a kitchen set in the middle. She played in that every single day for two years. When I added one to her bedroom, I laid an organic toddler sized futon on the floor of the playstand and just clipped a silk over it. She loves it just as much as the other one, and leaving it empty has really encouraged lots more play........who'da guessed. She drags dolls and silks into the empty one and plays for hours.
