Playdate Importance and Some Playdate Ready Home Ideas


Playdate Importance and Some Playdate Ready Home Ideas

Playdates provide lots of developmental and social benefits no matter what ages your children are. They promote opportunities for interaction between playmates that help develop several crucial skills.

Playdate activities for kids give children a social experience that leads to physical and mental growth. These social play gatherings also develop positive behaviours such as sharing and creative play. And of course they are often loads of fun.

So what is a playdate? It is a pre-arranged time for young kids, toddlers, and even teenagers to get together and play various activities. The key idea behind playdates is to let children interact more often with each other in a less formal environment. Sometimes the activities can be semi-organised and structured, like a ball game or bike riding. Or the kids can just empty out the toy box, make a mess and use their imaginations to play games.

Benefits of Play Dates

Some major Playdates benefits for kids include:

  • Sparks Creativity and Imagination: When kids play together, they exchange ideas and learn from their peers.
  • Improved Social Skills: By playing together, social skills are enhanced along with positive character development. If parents are involved, it helps if they become role models during play.
  • Increases Self-Confidence & Self-Esteem: Confident kids are always ready to take new challenges both at home and school.
  • Emotional Benefits: A playdate is all about playing and exploring together, leading to comfort in sharing emotions and thus, developing a deeper bond with peers.
  • Improves Physical Health: Playdates can involve physical exercises like running, jumping and climbing. This uses up energy, improves flexibility and stamina, and generally bolsters physical health, which may help prevent obesity.
  • Improves Attention Span: Playdates can help improve the attention span and concentration of toddlers and older children.
  • Creates Long-Lasting Friendships: When playing together, kids develop close friendships, reduce stress, and learn to get along with others.

Play Date Home Ideas

Indulge in Sensory-Seeking Activities

Sensory stimulations always give a special thrill to young children. For sensory stimulations, nothing can be better than Soft Plays for kids. Toys like Sensory Clever Block toys or Sensory Sunshine Toys can be a lot of fun and calming at the same time.

Give Them an Indoor Gym

It is one of the best playdate activities that kids can indulge in majorly because kids get the benefits of outdoor playing while being indoors. Get a nice jungle gym for kids and see them get super excited as they play with ropes, monkey bars, jumping, climbing, and hopping all day long.

Some Affordable Play Date Ideas Include:

  • Painting: Painting gives hours of entertainment to kids and is a great outlet for their creativity. It's not just a solo activity, as painting is also fun in groups. Moreover, it's affordable and easy to get started.
  • Play Darts: This can be fun for kids and parents alike. Kids-friendly darts are made using quality plastics or Velcro and are safe to play with.

Final Words

These were some easy and fun-filled playdate ideas. Pick the one that suits everyone in the room, including the kids and yourself.

Indoor gym helps my kids stay active and healthy.

I have finally found the Swedish Walls in Australia at Tinnitots! And I have recently purchased Swedish Corner Wallbars for my children.
I’m very happy with the quality. It’s was very easy to assemble (not harder then IKEA). It’s a very steady and strong construction, easy to adjust to either right or left corner of the room.
My kids absolutely love it, they became stronger and more confident in themselves climbing up and down. Great release of energy for the 3 year olds, especially when it has been raining this year so much! Overall very happy with the purchase and highly recommend! Thank you Tinnitots for the great service!

Sensory playmat

Absolutely thrilled with our sensory playmat. With 4 kids ranging from 3-10 they all love using it.
Tinnitots has excellent communication would order from them again!

brilliant addition to the clinic

These have been a great clinical addition to the clinic. Kids love them and I have had no hesitation in suggesting them to families when clinically indicated.

thanks Tinnitots

The best sensory toy ever!

I have purchased 10 large tiles, a combination of firm and soft ones. To say they have been popular would be an understatement! First of all, they look and feel fantastic: great colours and attractive designs that represent natural things like shells, cones, sticks, etc. The plastic they are made of has no odour which is great for young children. Secondly, the mats are loved by all - from tiny babies to feel the textures with their hands to 5 yo kids who love walking and running on them! Not to mention parents who also enjoy a nice foot massage stepping on those tiles. Since we have started using them in our centre (about 3 weeks now), we have had so many positive comments from parents and squeals of joy from kids when they are on those sensory mats. The tiles are easy to put together and modify the layout, there is no problem cleaning them and storing in a box. I am even thinking of getting some more!

Fantastic!

The mats are a wonderful addition to my classroom. Other teachers want them and students play with them all day. Also the best customer service! Thank you!!

Love this!

My 20 month old son really enjoys playing with the bear! Looking forward to reaching him how to tie shoe laces with it when he is a bit older. Really good for his fine motor skills

Tres contente !

J'ai offert ce busy-board à mon fils pour ses 1 an & j'en suis très contente ! Thank you Tinnitots.

My boy loves it

What a fantastic activity cube. High quality and finishes are perfect.Highly recommend.
Thank you for excellent customer service too.

Christmas Present

Great product, easy to assemble and strong. Delivery was quicker than expected as well so there was plenty of time to have it assembled in preperation for Christmas day for my daughter.

Must have for toddlers!

My favourite toddler product yet! A must buy! Our little ones loves climbing up when we are in the kitchen to help with the dishes, preparing food or just being at our level. It has taken away so much of the stress of meal times when he used to be in my feet making a mess pulling everything out and wanting my attention! He is now happy to see what is going on and mostly play in the sink! It has developed his autonomy so much! Thank you for an awesome product!

Must have!!

The most beautiful quality busy board. Amazing product and fantastic customer service.
A must have toy - keeps my toddler entertained and engaged

Awesome addition

We love the slide/climbing wall. Sturdy and versatile and it looks awesome with the climbing triangle.

Wooden Pikler Triangle W1

Love it

We love our climbing triangle! The best price we could find for something that is such good quality. Our 1 and 2 year olds love it and it looks great!

Happy Fathers Day

I bought the Wooden Indoor Pikler Gym W3 for my 2.5 year old son, and we assembled it on Fathers Day. It is very well made, and easy to construct (I am a Mechanical Engineer with a background in Product Engineering), and I am confident it will be reliable and long lasting. My son loves it, he quickly mastered the slide and ladders, and in the following days gained the confidence to try the climbing wall, and rope ladder. It is great to watch him gaining valuable gymnastic skills in the safety of my living room. The price was more than I planned to spend, but the value for money is excellent. Definitely recommended! I should add Thomas was very helpful with my pre-sale questions, delivery, and a follow up phone call to make sure I was happy with the purchase, great customer service!

Excellent product and customer service!

Firstly the customer service was incredible. Within minutes of purchasing the sensory board I received a tracking ID email to the courier service. I received the parcel the very next day and had a text follow up from Tinnitots to confirm they had seen the parcel had been delivered and had I received it ok. The quality is fantastic and it is exactly as shown in the photos. I highly recommend Tinnitots to anyone looking for amazing and interactive children's toys. The price is certainly worth it, you can see that the board is built to last and with such great customer service, especially during covid, I can't speak more highly of the products and of Tinnitots.

Great product

Great customer service. Product is very well made and so easy to assemble. Perfect in our therapy clinic for young children.

Best & Favourite Purchase

Absolutely LOVE this pikler for my 7month old daughter! We spend so much time with it. We got the larger one so she can eventually grow into it! It is a great size really easy to assemble. Absolutely recommend to all those who are thinking of purchasing!

Another Fabulous Product

Colourful, solid, beautifully finished like all of the Tinnitots products. I have bought 3 of these for my Gymbaroo centres and the children love them from crawling babies to preschoolers.

Awesome Climbing frame

We love everything about the gym. It looks beautiful and is so solid, safe and appealing.
The Gymbaroo kids love it and it makes a great addition to our babyroom.
