I’ve come up with the best ones for you – covering storage and even some play time. Here are the 10 essentials for every playroom.

1. Storage Hammock
The storage hammock is great for stuffed animals like you see above. But just about any toy can be stored with this handy corner contraption. Clearing up more floor space for whatever activity is taking place in the playroom today is easy once you hang up the hammock!
2. Portable Play Mat
Have the kids ever been playing but you have somewhere you need to be right away? This play mat doubles as a quick storage bag. It easily zips up to transport whatever the kids are playing with at the moment to make your playroom portable. Now they can take it with them to Grandma’s!
3. Chalkboard Decal
No playroom is complete without a chalkboard! The chalkboard decal from Mr. Big Chalk allows you to turn any wall into a GIANT chalkboard. You can make it as big or as small as you want, and you aren’t just limited to walls. You can use it on tables too!
4. Book Rack
The kids’ book rack gives you a colorful option for storing all of the books that your kids love to read. It will look great in any playroom with its bright colors!
5. Construction Table
This table serves as storage for building blocks with a platform to build on and a traditional table when the cover is on. The construction table is an awesome addition to every playroom!
6. Toy Chest
Sometimes trying to find a gender neutral toy chest can be easier said than done! This toy chest comes with a choice of a cute elephant, alligator or pig graphic on the side.
7. Giant Road Carpet
There is a very distinct reason that the giant road carpet has stayed around for as many decades as it has. They are fun for every child and a welcome addition to their playroom.
8. Galaxy Night Light
Such an amazing toy! Turn your playroom into a spaceship traveling through all of the stars with the galaxy night light. It projects dancing lights in all directions and would look great in any room. Especially your playroom!
9. Magnetic Calendar
Not only will this magnetic calendar look great in the room, but it will even help teach your kids about the days of the week, weather, and more! It’s a win-win-win!
10. Shape Sorting Clock
There’s no need for an actual clock in the playroom. Play time has no time limit! However, the shape sorting clock deserves a permanent spot in the playroom to help teach your little ones the concept of time and shape sorting.
Starting up your own playroom can be a wild and exciting time! For you AND your kids! After learning all that you have with the playroom 101 series, and now knowing the 10 essentials for every playroom you are ready to go off on your own and create the best playroom possible!
