28 Kids Play Area Inspirations

From Personalized Neighborhood Mats to Collapsible Dollhouse Chairs

— July 2, 2015 — Life-Stages
From digital projections of video games that transform any floor into an immersive activity to interactive games inside hospital walls activated by magnets, there are boundless inspirations when designing a public kids play area for children of young age.

Playful, fruit-inspired furniture are tactile in a way that engages young children, a particularly difficult task especially when someone busy like a galleria or airport gate. When coupled with a floor mat that has been customized to a specific city or neighborhood, kids are also drawn in especially when it relates to themselves. Just two examples, they alone could play a part in communicating to the child that this a play space for them in the midst of a hectic bustling environment.

Additionally, many modern schools and even some retail stores have begun the creation of a sensory-driven play room, where children are easily immersed and often content exploring the various activities.
