Playtime Therapy Bed Sheets

Our mission is to make a meaningful impact by supplying our Playtime Bed Sheets, which can remarkably transform the hospital experience for children. These sheets turn hospital beds into an Edventure space where kids can explore, play, learn, rest, and recover. Additionally, we aim to provide First Responders with our Playtime Disposable Play Pads, a powerful distraction tool. Our ultimate goal is to minimize childhood trauma by creating comforting environments that alleviate anxiety and fear.

Kevin E Gatlin

Hi, my name is Kevin Gatlin. The reason I started my company is I went to visit a dear friend whose son was suffering in the hospital, and my heart ached for them. The thought of my own kids going through such a problematic time brought tears to my eyes. That's when I realized how important it is for children to feel comfortable and happy, even in the hospital. I decided to create Playtime Bed Sheets with the help of my mother and some fantastic teachers. Our goal was to magically transform the hospital bed into an Edventure for kids to explore, play, learn, sleep, and heal. As we worked on this project, we soon realized that our bed sheets could also be a powerful distraction tool for first responders. This has inspired our company to identify sources of childhood trauma and transform them into sources of comfort, reducing anxiety and fear.
