Mobile Playrooms improve the hospitalization experience of children while receiving medical care.

Convenience and Portability

Playrooms are designed to be efficiently wheeled from one room to the next, serving a great number of patients.

Specially Manufactured

Mobile Playrooms are hospital grade carts, custom-built for the Foundation based on strict specifications.

Customizable Content

Mobile playrooms are customized to meet the needs of each hospital based on its patient population.

Lifting the Spirits of Hospitalized Children!

Created from an Unfulfilled Need.

We discovered very quickly that most children's needs do not follow playroom operating hours!

Limited Schedule & Availability

Operation/supervision of the hospital playrooms typically are restricted by the availability of any hospital’s human & economic resources! When Oscar was hospitalized it became obvious pretty quickly that most children do not follow the schedule of playroom hours.

Intensive Care Units

There are times when the children, due to their diagnosis, medical condition or treatment are unable to leave their bed / room and go to the traditional playroom, thus completely missing the opportunity to engage in play even if limited.

Lack of Children's Services

We discovered that of 5,500+ hospitals throughout the US, few facilities have a playroom available at all and children are left to find entertainment on their own.

Close to 120 Mobile Playrooms!

Thanks to generous donations we now have close to 120 Mobile Playroom units in the U.S. and around the world.
