If you find yourself in a position that puts you in charge of a waiting room where children habitually come, whether it is a doctor's office or a bank, it is to your best interest to keep in well-stocked on toys and games! It is important to remember that children are not tiny adults and that they may not always be interested in waiting quietly. To ensure a quiet and peaceful wait for all your patrons, make sure you keep the smallest occupants of your waiting room entertained!
One benefit of making sure that your waiting area is well stocked with waiting room toys is that you give the children's parents time to fill out paperwork in peace. You may need them to give you insurance information, or fill out forms or consult with the front desk. This all becomes more difficult if they are trying to wrestle their children or keep them entertained. If you can provide something like a building block set or a castle playhouse, the kids will definitely let their parents work. Waiting room toys can also keep a child occupied if the parent needs to discuss something sensitive with someone at the office. Rather than having a child hanging on and listening, he or she can be sent to play instead.
Another thing to remember is that waiting area games will put children at ease. If you are a pediatrician, you already know that children can occasionally have a great dread of going to your office. When you put out doctor office toys that will distract and entertain them, they lose some of the fear that they develop. Having waiting room toys can put them at ease and take their mind off the coming visit. If they can associate their visit with fun kitchen play furniture, they'll be a lot easier to bring in, something their parents will thank you for!
Indoor play toys can also ease up on other negative emotions as well. No child does very well when bored, and sometimes, that's exactly what a waiting time signifies. A child who has been stimulated and entertained is a great deal more attentive and pliable than one that has been waiting for half an hour. Thirty minutes can seem like an eternity to a child, so make sure that the wait is pleasant. In addition, you can always start conversation by asking what the child was playing with or what he liked best.
Remember that when buying waiting area play centers, you don't have to buy one toy for every child that is in your waiting room. Activity cubes and activity tables are all toys that can be shared by more than one child at a time and when you have one of these things as the focus of your play area, children will inevitably be drawn to it. Children are much easier to entertain when playing with other children, and activity tables will definitely get them playing with each other. These toys are also excellent for the waiting area because they cannot be pocketed or taken away. You don't have to worry about a child walking off with it, and you can ensure that all the children who come to your office get to play with it.
Don't think that your doctor office toys need constant care to keep clean either! While you may wish to avoid soft toys that are easily damaged, plastic toys and wood toys are easy to clean and put away. Most of the time, an occasional wiping with soap and water will keep your play area clean and fresh for its next visitors. When you are thinking of buying waiting room toys don't be afraid of clutter! Many professionals balk at toys because they feel it will create an untidy and distracting appearance. To the contrary, you can keep your play area clear by making sure that you have plenty of places to hold the toys. Small shelves can be found of course, but for a more attractive option, take a look at the toys storage benches or toys storage shelves. Both of these options can store reception room toys and provide a wonderful surprise for the child who takes a peek inside.
If you have any input into the design of the waiting area, make sure that you include some good waiting room toys; it can make everyone's life a lot easier!
