I think people are tricked into paying a lot of money for things, just because things can appear to be different or are set in a different environment and therefor somehow become more impressive. I’m mainly talking about these” Mommy and Me” or Gymboree classes. This last weekend I went with my cousin and her 1 year old to one of those classes and it was pretty fun. Essentially she is paying $60 a month so her daughter can play in a colorful padded room. I told her to come to our website and look at our soft tiles. For less than what it costs her for 6 months of these classes, she could have her own playroom filled with foam floor tiles that her daughter could use whenever she wanted.
With the incredible selection of SoftTiles, combined with our great gym equipment, and variety play mats for children, you can really create a personalized at home play area for your children. I did a blog a few months ago about the different shapes and other fun you can have with these tiles, so take a look at that for more fun ideas. The only down side is with your cool playroom, all the other parents will want to organize play dates at your house.

A very uplifting letter came in the mail the other day.Â The opening paragraph read as follows:
“Dear Mr. Gonzalez,
On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your generous donation of discounted foam floor tiles
for Savannah’s wish…”Â
Savannah is a little girl who wanted a playhouse and it seems like our foam tiles were just the thing they needed to line the inside of a full size dollhouse for extra padding and protection.Â A very nice pink, purple, and flower patterned soft flooring now decorates the inside of her very own life-size dollhouse.Â We often get requests for donations and while we can not always accommodate, it’s really good to hear from any customerÂ following up with us to give us positive feedback.
For me, this instance was particularly touching because Darla, the program manager, was one of the most positive people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.Â Her absolute dedication to her job and all that it’s about make it pretty inspiring to be a part of it, even if it’sÂ just to provide a service or product.Â It’s people like her that can really make something so trivial as our play mats for kids
, and apply it to give someone in need a little more strength, hope, and joy.Â An important reminder that even when you’re down and out, it’s good to know that there are people out there striving to make a big difference in an innocent little boy or girls life.
