InRoad Toys ~ PlayTape!

I have boys and most little boys I know LOVE cars and trucks, tractors, bikes….machines of any sort really.  With three boys in this house we have quite the collection of mini cars like Hot Wheels and Matchbox.  When I found out about PlayTape by InRoad Toys I knew immediately that it would be a hit with my boys.  Even my little one year old daughter quite enjoyed driving the cars and trucks on the road tape!

PlayTape is just like wide masking tape but with roads printed on it.  Such a great idea! The boys rolled out the tape in many different combinations to create streets.  They created their own little town and used blocks to make houses and stores. 🙂  I love watching them create and build.

The tape was easy to use but required a careful hand so my nine year old was in charge of creating the streets.  Thankfully the tape is easy to move around in case of a mistake, or in my son’s case, a change in design.  PlayTape comes in different widths and colours and also has curved pieces.

We used our PlayTape on our foam mats in the play room as well as on carpet.  It worked well on both surfaces but my boys preferred the smoothness of the foam mats.  You can use the tape on any kind of surface; I am sure you could even try it outside on the sidewalk!  Once the boys had finished with the PlayTape roads and decided they wanted the floor space back to create new games and adventures they easily took the tape off.  The PlayTape didn’t leave any residue and I didn’t even have to help to clean up. That’s always good news for a mom!

PlayTape is such a fun product.  It encourages creativity and imaginative play and it is easy to use.  Two thumbs up from this mom. 🙂  You can buy PlayTape here.

    Play Tape sounds like a great product. Kids would have so much fun crating and playing with their roadways.

    I’m sure this tape would be highly appreciated wherever kids are found. I think it’s a great idea and am pleased to read that it works well both on carpet and foam.

    Oh my I can see hours of fun with these play tape strips !

  6. Very cool that this tape can be placed any which way throughout the house!

  7. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    So if it sticks well to carpet and foam how about wooden floors? Does it come of them easily too?

  8. Debbie White Beattie says:

    This is a much less expensive option for kids to have a road to drive their cars on

  9. Elizabeth Matthiesen says:

    Of course in my last comment it should read ‘Does it come off them easily too?’ I can’t quite believe I spelt that wrong, I was lucky the grammar police didn’t come after me. LOL
