Giveaway: Playroom Inspiration From LON

There’s nothing like a playroom to bring on the arts and crafts! Unfortunately, not all of us are lucky enough to have an entire room to dedicate for playtime but the good news is, you don’t need one. A small area in the home ideally located in the family room or just off the kitchen is really all the space your kids need and you require to keep an eye on them! In fact, I recently determined that it was time to make our formal dining room a little less formal and much more functional. I then took my existing breakfast nook and converted it into a playroom – best move ever!


So when shopping for playroom products on the web, our first stop at Little Apple Design is always The Land of Nod…And not just for furniture but for wonderful inspiration!  Sure ample toy storage and a kids table are key for any play area but designating the space with your child’s art or creating inexpensive art of your own is just what you need to add a bit of playroom fun! Here’s how you can do it with a few LON faves….

Paper pom-poms are all the rage in some mommy circles so check out LON’s crafty “Loves Me, Loves Me Not Flower Making Kit“. Why not craft a few flower bouquets with your little girl for display? Hang them from eye-hooks and fishing line from the ceiling or fill recycled vases.

It’s holiday time but garlands can be used year round or inexpensively updated with the seasons. Kick the construction paper rings up a notch with flags or fun phrases. This holiday, try the warm mittens from the “Kids Felt Holiday Garlands” collection.

Now, you can spruce up your kid’s play area by winning both the Kids Flower Making Kit Toy and Mitten Felt Holiday Garland from The Land of Nod.

    Like you said LON is truly an inspiration – seen the table with storage in so many ad’s, deco ideas and true homes. Love it

    This one is easy….the accordian peg racks has always been my favorite. Purchased the pink one 6 years ago to hang in my daughters room to display and hang her purses, coats, and sweaters….then painted it white when my son was born for his baseball hats and jackets. The best thing is that it doubles as “art” for a large wall and very affordable!

    Land of Nod is my favorite kids store. I just love their products and their clever little descriptions and titles.

    I really want that picture frame wall paper, but I also love the Shop Til You Drop Market.

    We are lucky enough to have the space in our house for a playroom. Our formal living room isn’t a space we’d use so we turned it into a playroom…it’s a work in progress but its always a hit and we spend a lot of time in there!

    They have so many great design ideas it’s hard to pick just one but I love how affordable their stuff is compared to their “competitor!” Just wish there was a store in AZ! And the fun names for their products makes it even better to shop!

    I love the felt Christmas Countdown Calendar on the LON website. I’m thinking of getting it for my classroom.

    Not only do I love these chairs, but I love the atari looking guys on the wall. I don’t have a huge house so this theme would be great to combine in an adult’s game room along with a child’s playroom.

  20. 20

    I love the Bin There Done That Floor Book Bin. I like that the kids can see the book covers and not just the spines.

  21. 21

    I love the website. I look at it weekly. I have a 3 year old with a new bedroom and a little girl on the way. I just was looking at window panels on the website today. Love it!

  22. 22

    i’m a subsriber. i have a little one on the way and have been drooling over everything on the LoN site. i especially love all their storage and shelving item as we grow from a family of 3 to a family of 4.

    I love the Land of Nod site! I have a whole folder of ideas I’ve torn from the catalog. : ) My young ‘uns haven’t been quite old enough nor have we had the space for a dedicated playroom. But soon! I’m especially fond of their storage solutions.

    i love the bean bag seats and the table with the built-in roll of paper. it looks so comfortable and i can totally imagine my two sons enjoying hours in a room like that. wish we had the space for a whole room playroom but after seeing all the options in this post, i will definitely be re-examining every space in my house!

    THe All Aboard Train Cases from the Adventureland area of the site is so cute and useful. My daughter would love this for storage for her ‘foofy’ things and also to pack up a load of fun and go to her BFF’s in the neighborhood for a day of crafts. Wow…very cool things not available when my older kids were younger…

    Both of the giveaway kits are great! How fun to make them with my children and then hand them in their rooms. There is so much to love on their site. The Walden Storage Bedroom is a favorite of mine. I love
    the Camp Pennants. Also, the Glad About Plaid Bedroom is wonderful. The Name Garland hung above the
    bed is super. Many thanks, Cindi

    I have ALWAYS been a subscriber, FB Fan and Twitter Follower of Project Nursery! And a loyal LON shopper…but just became a FB Fan and now following on Twitter. But my favorite LON item is definitely the Wolfgang Amadeus Jr. Piano – could there be such a cuter item? My little 8 month old daughter is getting that from Santa this year – will definitely be some music in our household in Dallas!

    The Splat Mats are a great idea, especially since they are made of safe materials. The She’s a Ladybug Bath Pod would be a lot of help with bath toys, it lets them dry, so less worry of them getting germs. The bath toys are so cute, the Scrub-a-Dub-Dub Bath Toy Set, the Animal soap sacks, Tub Puppets, all would make bath time fun & easy!
