Children friendly: Play Date system by DesignTex

DesignTex launched the Play Date, a two-part wall treatment system that allows children to transform rooms with geometric magnets and colored pens.  The first part is an impact-resistant wall treatment digitally printed with a grid overlaid with large-scale shapes. The second part is a ferrous wall similarly printed with a grid to provide the backdrop for a set of colored magnetic shapes, which are repositionable on the wall and finished with a dry-erase film to create a writable surface.

Play Date utilizes dry-erase film both on its magnetic decals and its supporting ferrous wall. As a result, these decals are not only movable elements on a writable and erasable wall, but are themselves spaces for drawing or writing messages. The decals are customizable in shape and can be digitally printed in a variety of colors and patterns. In addition, each element of the Play Date system may be used independently.
