~I received InRoads PlayTape for review, but I also am a purchaser. This tape is pure genius!~
From the moment I saw InRoads PlayTape I knew I must have it. It is one of those products that made me have one of those “Why did I not think of this!?” moments. We have literally thousands of toy cars in our house and just like the founder of InRoad Toys realized, there were lots of cars but no roads. Thankfully that father was a lot smarter than I and created this magnificent simple solution, PlayTape.
It comes in multiple colors: Black, Orange, Purple, Red and Blue; as well as varying sizes for vehicles – 2in (1:128 Scale) and 4in (1:64 scale). My photos show the 2in for comparison.
The PlayTape comes in a roll, is made of paper and is easy-tear; which makes it easy for children and they don’t need to use scissors. Plus, it’s repositionable, leaves no residue upon removal and it is recyclable! I’ve pulled the tape up and placed it down in multiple spots. It sticks to any flat surface easily. I’ve also placed it on flat carpet without much difference.
There is so much fun to be had when you can make roads on your floor. We create little buildings and get out tiny stop signs, orange cones and add in all his toy car washes, garages and shops! It’s a lot of fun to have little construction trucks pretend to put the road down for the cars! PlayTape adds so much to imaginative play. It was like the missing piece of the puzzle.
I’ve set up little roads in all the rooms of the house with cars… which means pretty much all of them. We even have roads on our kitchen table that hold down a Cars placemat. This gave me the idea that you could also use the PlayTape Roads for crafts for car fans! Or use them to make decorative trimming around a room or bed. The ideas with this tape are limitless!
The other type of PlayTape you can get is Train Tracks. There are the Classic Series Tracks, the Trolley Tracks and even Thomas & Friends Tracks! These are all 2in width, but go up to 60ft rolls. It’s the perfect gift for those who love trains, especially if you cannot afford a whole train set or can’t fit one in your home. Kids can still collect all their favorite trains and make their own little train tracks all over the house! I love it!
If you are looking for the perfect summertime entertainment, especially for rainy days, or a gift for a big car fan… you absolutely need this. I honestly do not know how I ever went without it.
You can find InRoad Toys PlayTape in their shop. Make sure to check the width of the road you want and how much track you need before purchasing. You can thank InRoad Toys on their Facebook Page and/or @InRoadToys on Twitter.
