Soft Play Forms

So, we’re sit­ting around Sat­ur­day morn­ing, one kid is watch­ing TV (yes, we know) while the oth­er is play­ing hap­pi­ly with the big, vinyl-cov­ered foam blocks we keep telling you are the most awe­some toy ever.

Gaz­ing in admi­ra­tion at them, we decide that maybe we should buy anoth­er set, as these are five years old and con­stant, almost dai­ly play has start­ed to wear them out just a smidge. It would be nice to have some back up pieces, since we antic­i­pate at least three to five more years of play with them.

So I go to my trusty old link, and there they are at Con­struc­tive Play­things, now for $140. Not bad, but we have a gift cer­tifi­cate to Ama­zon, so, on a whim, I decide to check and see if I can get them through Ama­zon. Not sure what to search for (the man­u­fac­tur­er is unclear) I go with their title/description on the Con­struc­tive Play­things web site, “Soft Play Forms.”

Sure enough, they are list­ed at Ama­zon, though only from a third-par­ty indi­vid­ual, and for a $100 pre­mi­um… but I was much more inter­est­ed in the sec­ond item Ama­zon sug­gest­ed for the search: Soft Play Forms.
