Interview Marie - A Mom On a Mission! ❤️

Q: Where are you located?
A:
 Westchester, NY

Q: How many children do you have and how old are they?
A:
 I have three children: an 8-year-old boy and 6-year-old boy-girl twins.

Q: How did you first hear about Project Playroom?
A:
 A family friend introduced us to Project Playroom!

Q: How might this space help your relationship with your children?
A:
 Before we had our Project Playroom installed, they were too addicted to their iPads and Nintendo Switch which was so frustrating for me to watch, especially as a fitness coach! They now opt to play in their new playroom together rather than spending solo time on screens which makes everyone, especially Mom, happy!

Q: How has the space contributed to your health and recovery?
A: 
Personally, I use the mats for my weekly mat workouts. Such a great, cushioned place to slowly get back to my workout routine. What amazes me is the versatility of the space: I just unhook the hanging equipment and I have my own LARGE gym mat to stretch and do workouts on. Much better than a yoga mat where my movements are confined.

Q: What were your goals in creating this space for your children?
A: 
To encourage more active play in an age of sedentary activities like watching tv, playing on iPads or video games. As a fitness coach and fit mama, my hope is to instill my passion for fitness and exercise in my children at a young age through play. I also wanted to encourage them to play together more, and I can definitely see that happening more and more with our Project Playroom.

Q: What was your experience like setting up and installing our products?
A: 
We were fortunate to have a contractor who is a close friend and his team handled the setup and install. I couldn’t believe how quickly everything was installed and our basement was transformed!

Q: Any design advice for others?
A: 
The best advice is to make sure the products are positioned in a way that connects them all in a system with multiple ways to play. For example: a ladder up the wall connects to monkey bars which go all the way across to the other side but also there is a rope or hanging rope ladder you can climb up to or down from the monkey bars. I also HIGHLY recommend the exercise rings judging by how much all my kids fight over that particular piece of equipment!

Q: Did the products you ordered arrive in a timely manner?
A: 
Yes, the delivery was seamless and products arrived promptly. Very fast shipping! Plus, I appreciated the follow-up emails once a product was ordered, shipped and delivered.

Q: How long did it take to complete the room from start to finish?
A: 
Two weeks, including allowing the paint to dry. The actual installation of the products was completed within a day!

Q: If you could add more products from our store what might you add?
A: 
I would love the cocoon chair and the ninja cones and balls to add to the monkey bars.
