Waiting Room Toys Guaranteed to Keep Children Busy

Waiting Room Toys
Waiting Room Toys

Children love having something to do while they wait, and parents appreciate the distraction when they arrive at an appointment and find a play space devoted for their child's entertainment. Toys featured in an office lobby or waiting room provide the opportunity for fun while passing time and can even serve as a diversion for nervous little patients waiting to see the doctor.

Any place you expect children to visit, whether it tailors specifically to children such as pediatric offices, children's dental clinics, daycare or school as well as any businesses such as a car dealership, hair salon, bank or library in which children could likely be in attendance will benefit from the structure of a play corner. 

These spaces allow otherwise energetic children to focus that energy in a safe and specific environment designed for imaginative play. Appropriate waiting rooms toys create a relaxing atmosphere for bored or anxious children, for which parents will be grateful. Amuse your little patients with an interesting blend of play options and watch their faces light up at the discovery that you've thought of everything.

Let's look at some options for your office:

A favorite among children is the activity table. These waiting room toys come in a variety of activity options, such as building block tables and train table options. Many tables have multiple play functions, such as magnetic play and rollercoaster bead mazes to name a few. These surfaces allow for big imagination in a small package to accommodate nearly any size office space. Look for tables composed of wood for lasting value.

Kids can play and explore with play cubes available in just about any theme to match your pre-existing decor. These cubes come in varying sizes depending on the space you have allotted, and feature educational activities on each side such as puzzles, matching games, beads and wires, mazes, or gears for busy little hands. With all toy pieces built in, play cubes are easy for busy offices to maintain.

These panels fit safely and securely on the wall and feature such activities as tic-tac-toe, alphabet or memory games. Mirror wall panels will captivate the youngest of children. Wall toys are the perfect solution for offices short on floor space and come in many different sizes and shapes. Hang them at a child friendly level, and these space savers make for plenty of smiles with boys and girls of all ages.

What office is complete without offering kids a choice of fun books or magazines to look at while they wait. A hit with babies and toddlers who can read with their parents in addition to older kids who can read independently, bookcases or similarly popular browser stands offer a fun and playful space to store favorite reads.

Get Moving! Top Tricycles for Your Little Mover and Shaker


Tricycles make a great foundation for teaching kids the fundamentals of pedaling and steering. Along with developing gross motor skills, kids learn independence through trial and error as they test and push the boundaries of their skills. As they discover that moving their feet certain ways results in forward and reverse motions, they also begin to gain control over their movement and balance. Their athletic ability will grow with practice and persistence, all while they enjoy the pleasures of outdoor play.

Tricycles come in a variety of shapes and sizes. It's tough to know which one will best suit your child. From grow-with-me trikes, to four wheeler converts to retro classics, we have compiled a list of tricycles in order to help you make an informed purchase.

If you are looking for a one-stop-shop tricycle, you've struck gold. This 4-way trike grows with your child, from 9-months all the way up to five years of age. It easily converts from infant trike to steering trike, learn-to-ride, and finally classic trike. For the early stages, the pedals become footrests while push handles allow an adult to steer. A secure three point harness and high back allow for safe riding or driving. Equipped with a stroller-style sun shade that shields from sunrays, a removable tray with cup holder, and covered storage bin, this tricycle is ready to roll.

Your boy or girl will love this exciting 3-in-1 tricycle. This versatile trike goes from a four wheeler mini quad, to trike for a toddler, all the way to your child's first 2-wheeled bicycle. A chain guard that is completely enclosed and puncture proof tires make for safe riding. Parents will love the unique quick wheel change that takes the bike from four, to three, down to two wheels.

This classic trike makes a stylish statement. The sturdy all-steel construction, solid rubber tires, durable steel spokes and comfortable leatherette paddle saddle seat are set for the long haul. The adjustable handlebars grow with your child. For an added cool factor, this tricycle boasts a real, battery operated LED headlight. Make this bike truly special for the little one in your life and personalize it with their name, nickname or initials.

Your little princess will be the bell of the ball in this classic retro tricycle. She'll be riding in style with chrome accents straight out of the 1930s.
