My cousin Anna is a pediatrician who recently shared with me the experiences she had improvising her office’s waiting room arrangements. As a mother of a 6 year old myself, I could completely relate to the problems they have been facing with their doctor office set up in Sacramento. They have had a myriad of patients accompanied with toddlers visiting their doctor each day. As a pediatrician, she has to make extra efforts to see to that a child is comforted right from the moment when he/she steps into the office. A child’s patience and cooperation is put to test especially in doctor offices where the waiting period is enduringly long. What is the solution Anna came up with, you ask? Well, she accommodated a notable part of the waiting room with doctor office toys.
Although, we see that it is a norm to have a small playhouse and indoor waiting room toys in most established clinics and doctor offices, it is the kind of toys and the kind of arrangement you make that proves to be most efficient for both the doctors and their little patients. I have learnt from my cousin that these toys that are designed for the common waiting area of offices and other places of visit are not the regular toys that we buy for our children. These waiting room toys are devised to occupy minimum floor space and also have immovable parts that reduce instances of untidy office environments. These toys also have multiple platforms for different fun and educational games which ensure that more kids get a chance to play with them simultaneously.
Doctor office toys are magical pieces of fun and frolic ornamenting their waiting rooms that are sure to boost the spirits up of their kid visitors. The kids are thus less likely to be a distraction to their parents and doctors during situations that demands privacy. In case of a pediatric clinic, the toys comfort the child patient and make him/her more receptive to their doctor eventually.
Some examples of the new generation reception area toys are the trendy wall panel toys that has obtained profound significance not just as doctor office toys but also as lobby toys in businesses like car dealerships, banks, airports, shoes stores, restaurants and more. These businesses that often have visitors of varied kinds have realized the importance to keep their visitor’s kids occupied with a playroom space so that it does not produce any hindrance during meetings with the clients. The new generation lobby toys also include toys like, wall panels, activity tables and play cubes. These have immovable parts and designed for multiple games that are of immense educational importance mixed with enthusiastic and fun concepts.
Another concern that officials at a commercial office setting may have when it comes to reception area toys are maintaining cleanliness and hygiene in toys. To that concern, retailers have developed wooden toys that have smooth surfaces that do not collect dust particles as much as soft toys do and moreover are rather easy to clean. Good news with wooden toys is they are completely eco-friendly and do not garner harmful chemicals in the form of paints or other chemicals found in synthetics and plastics.
Child safety, education importance, compactness, multi-function, maintenance free, immobility, eco-friendliness, user friendliness and finally the fun factor are the major essentials of reception area toys of the new generation.
