When kids play, they mean business. Playroom and classroom equipment must be able to withstand the rough-and-tumble antics of a child, as well as foster his and her growth and development. The best playroom furniture is not only decorative, but also able to provide children with a safe environment to enhance their physical and mental development, and renew their energy.
Bodies in Motion
Small children need big activity to grow and develop muscles, fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination.
A soft but durable foam balance beam helps fine-tune balance and coordination. Covered in easy-to-clean vinyl, these modular foam beams can be combined to form a variety of lengths and shapes. The wide, sturdy base of each beam offers stability for little feet.
Create a customized play area with a soft indoor playground. You can find individual pieces, or get sets of 8- and 11-piece soft foam shapes crafted of durable, brightly colored vinyl. The pieces may be combined in a number of ways to fit your daycare or playroom, and can vary day to day as the children get older and larger.
Kid’s Activity Mats are soft foam mats with a smooth, vinyl covering meant to provide a safe, clean and padded area for play. Dirt and spills can be wiped away with a damp cloth, and the sturdy but soft foam mats are easily disinfected. Lightweight and portable, activity mats are available in a variety of colors, lengths, and thicknesses to accommodate almost any daycare, classroom, or playroom need. A variety of playful designs are available such as fishbowl, artist palette, and interlocking puzzle piece themes. Each mat is waterproof, fire-retardant, and suitable for soft play activity.
Younger children benefit from physical activity as well and have great fun with the Toddler Tumble n’ Roll. These soft foam tubes are hollow, allowing a small child to climb inside and be safely cushioned while being rolled by a playmate or teacher. Each tube is issued with a removable foam core that can be used with the tumbler or played with separately.
Activity Tables offer busy fingers colorful, interesting ways to boost fine-motor skills and develop hand-eye coordination. These clever constructions combine brightly colored moveable beads with sturdy wires in many shapes and patterns, and they are perfect for classrooms or playrooms.
Bodies at Rest
Kids play hard, pouring energy into everything they do. When it comes time for their little gears wind down, they need somewhere to rest. KinderMat Nap Mats provide safe and comfortable nap stations for tuckered tots. Constructed in the USA of quality materials using eco-friendly processes, these mats are durable and multi-functional. Nap Mat Covers provide even easier cleaning and fun patterns, too.

Sheets and blankets are available for the cots as well. Rest cots are moisture-proof and easily made portable with a carrier conversion kit.
If the kid’s aren’t quite ready for nap time, it may be time for kid’s foam furniture sets. They can play a quiet game of house, or settle in to read their favorite book with these sofa foam sofas, chairs, and end tables. Let their imaginations run wild with “my size” furniture that’s guaranteed not to stub toes or bruise elbows!
