Hertz Furniture’s huge selection of soft play toys, cushions, riding toys and play yards will make an exciting addition to any classroom or preschool gym. These vinyl toys are safe and easy to clean. If you are looking for a way to liven up an early-childhood learning space in a stimulating, educational way, soft play equipment is an excellent choice.
With many little ones playing and exploring in your classroom, it can be difficult to maintain a clean, germ-free environment. Soft play toys that are made of fabric can easily become stained and absorb germs. Unlike fabric, vinyl will not absorb stains or germs. It can be quickly cleaned on a regular basis, or in the event of an accidental spill. Easy cleaning is important in an environment where babies, toddlers and preschoolers play in close proximity because it prevents germs and colds from spreading.
Create your very own indoor playground with a set of climbing shapes. Our great selection of large shapes can be arranged in a myriad of ways to promote problem-solving and gross-motor skills development. Children can choose to play with individual pieces such as tunnels and slides, or practice running, climbing and tumbling through a whole obstacle course.
Children’s Factory soft climbing toys can be fastened together safely in a number of different configurations. Caregivers can make obstacle courses that are progressively challenging or focus on particular skills. Young learners will just love coming into school in the morning to see the new courses that have been created just for them. Alternatively, little ones can express their creativity and take initiative by designing their own challenges.
Babies need to spend time on their tummies and lie on the floor in different positions in order to develop important coordination skills and strengthen particular muscles. Colorful cushions enable babies and little ones to rest or sit on the floor comfortably. They come in a wide selection of fun animal shapes including ladybug, bee, caterpillar, turtle, alligator and more. They provide the perfect venue for tummy time or a bit of calm relaxing.
Worried about crawlers and early walkers getting injured when they trip and fall on the classroom floor? Play yards keep curious crawlers and beginning walkers in a safe enclosed area, while providing plenty of space to move around, explore and play. They are even large enough for caregivers to step inside and take part in the fun or sit down and read a book with students.
Another enclosed padded space that can be tons of fun is a cushy ball pit. Soft padded walls keep lots of colorful balls enclosed in the pool as young ones practice grasping, throwing and distinguishing colors. Ball pits encourage children to explore textures and play together.
Soft riding and rocking toys let little ones feel like the big guys with their very own vehicles. Unlike hard plastic toys, soft riding toys mold to fit the child for comfortable sitting and support. They can be enjoyed individually or in groups as children rock and ride independently or race and practice steering around.
For some extra fun with soft play toys, consider adding mirrors to an obstacle course. Young students will just love watching themselves as they maneuver around and learn to conquer new challenges. As they observe their own movements, babies and toddlers will develop greater awareness of their bodies and improved spatial sense.
Hertz Furniture’s soft play equipment will fit right into your preschool or daycare classroom. Whether you have a whole gym to fill or just a bit of extra space for a new item or two, we have a number of fun educational pieces that are sure to spark the curiosity of your little explorers. If you aren’t sure how to arrange your climbing toys or play yard, or you just need some help choosing the ideal soft animal cushion, contact the Hertz Design Center for free design and project help.
