Waiting Room Activities

When it is time to make a trip to the doctor, the wait can seem like ages to children. They tend to get antsy and restless. Any parent knows how aggravating it can be to keep a child preoccupied when they are waiting for their appointment. Investing in an activity cube or a wall mounted toy would help keep their minds set on something rather than running around like mad-people.

Waiting room play tables and wall mounted toys can help keep kids occupied while providing education. Giggle mirrors make their reflection distorted and are quite humorous. Another wall mounted toy featuring Tic-Tac-Toe can teach strategy and the funny people panel toy also provides a good amount of chuckles. Keep them absorbed in a little fun adventure while you’re counting the seconds on the clock with bead mazes or giant play cubes. These toys are fun, have no loose parts and keep kids out of mischief while you wait or speak to a health care provider.
