Parents will agree when we say that one of the most challenging things about living under quarantine (aside from online learning!) is keeping the kids engaged and active indoors.
Since playdates and visiting the park or playground isn't an option, looking for activities they can enjoy while staying in the comfort of home is a must.
Perhaps this is one of the reasons why many moms and dads are getting busy setting up playrooms or improving kiddie rooms.
For interior designer Vera Villarosa-Orila, it involved designing and creating kiddie furniture pieces for her two-year-old son, Bravo.
"It was brought about by the ECQ in April. Bravo kept asking to go to the playground every day. I almost bought him a wooden playground but decided against it because even if I already accepted that our condo is now his playroom, the set will take up too much space," she shares with Smartparenting.com.ph.
With space as an important consideration for Vera, she also thought of ordering a play sofa online. However, given quarantine restrictions and expensive shipping fees, the interior designer thought of having one made with the right specifications. Thus, tinyspace was born.

The design and production of tinyspace took less than two weeks, with Vera asking her trusted upholsterer to work on it following a rush timeline.
They coordinated via phone call and chat, with photo updates sent almost every day.
The main pieces of tinyspace include 4" and 6" foam with muslin cloth lining and washable fabric that's locally sourced.
Vera had zippers installed to make it easier to wash the fabric since spills and stains can be unavoidable during playtime.
The two larger pieces, which can be folded in the middle, also have handles for hassle-free storage and movement.
