Playboards for Toddlers & Special Needs Children
King Plastic Corporation, a leading manufacturer of polymer sheets, slabs and massive shapes announced that its popular brand, King ColorCore®, is being discovered in toy applications for toddlers and special needs children, thanks to a Minneapolis 501(c)(3) charitable organization, Playtime Tech.

For over 50 years, King Plastic’s innovations, combined with its customers’ imaginations, have led to the creation of entirely new categories of applications including Playtime Tech’s large interactive Playboards, which are mounted on walls in children’s hospitals and other institutions. Playtime Tech also donates smaller hand-held Playboards which cultivate fine motor skills and foster cognitive development in toddlers and children with special needs.

“We are very excited to see an amazing application made from our material,” said Michael Fabbri, National Sales Manager at King Plastic Corporation.

“We’re thrilled to have the enthusiasm and support of King Plastic,” said Dave Graff, Founder and Board Chairman at Playtime Tech. “I reached out to the executive team at King Plastic, who from our research would be the ideal company to potentially come alongside Playtime Tech to help put together a best in class product. King has been fabulous in working with us to get these interactive Playboards into institutions serving toddlers and special needs children. The interactive Playboards have been a powerful means to help patients or siblings visiting their brothers/sisters in children’s’ hospitals, Shriners Hospitals and Ronald McDonald Houses across the Unites States.”

The 33” x 23” interactive wall-mounted Playboards are made with King ColorBoard®, a colorful environmentally stabilized high-density polyethylene sheet. The polymer sheet never needs painting or refinishing, works like wood and it is easy to fabricate using common woodworking tools and techniques.

The 11” x 9” interactive portable Playboards are made with King ColorCore®, the multi-color engravable polymer sheet. It is a superior homogeneous sheet, a product of a unique state-of-the-art continuous process called Polyfusion, and manufactured to the highest standards in the industry. It is environmentally stabilized to withstand the harshest outdoor conditions. The material will not rust, delaminate or rot when exposed to UV, humidity or water. The thin cap layers and bright primary colors make it ideal for signage, marine, playground and recreational applications.
