A bit of magic while you wait

Stand, walk, wheel or bounce on 100 coloured tiles to grow images on a screen while you wait for your clinic appointment.

The longer you stay in one spot, the larger the image grows, so kids with the least mobility can create the biggest pictures. Work with other kids to create a wall-sized forest.

Check out this amazing video about how rehab engineers, scientists and artists created ScreenPlay at Holland Bloorview.

This magical waiting room was funded through donations in memory of Dr. Tammy Kagan-Kushnir, a beloved developmental pediatrician in our child development and brain injury programs who died in 2008. It truly reflects the spirit of Holland Bloorview.


Holland Bloorview just sounds like the most amazing place.

this is amazing, amazing, amazing.

That's a good idea for a waiting room. I've seen similar things in children's museums.
