Colorful and easy-to-clean play area

Large play center features a wall of built-ins designed to house toys, games, sports equipment, musical instrument and art supplies. The play equipment is easy to keep organized, and is out of sight when not in use. A television set fits behind one set of double doors; the set pulls out on its base and swivels for use.

Junior-size worktable and colorful box “chairs” are surfaced with durable laminated plastic. Boxes double as stools for reaching higher storage areas. The play area is linked to outdoor play yard by tall sliding doors. The doors feature practical sections of marine plywood at the bottoms; this plywood withstands accidental knocks given by trucks and other toys, and doubles as a children’s pin-up board for drawings.
