Meet Kevin Gatlin of Playtime Bed Sheets

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kevin Gatlin.

Kevin, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Because of space, my wife would use our son’s bed as a desk, but it wasn’t until I visited a friend whose son was sick in the Hospital did I realize that there was very little stimulation for kids confined to their Hospital beds and rooms! So, with the help of passionate teachers and parents, we created Playtime Bed Sheets.

Playtime Bed Sheets extended the play area of the room and provided kids a place where they can play, learn, sleep and heal! We quickly realized our Playtime Bed Sheets and Slumber Bags was exactly what the Doctor ordered for kids everywhere! With over 50 interactive games they provide the perfect daytime alternative to excessive TV watching, electronic devices, and the perfect structure to get kids to bed!

Playtime Slumber Bags have over 25 interactive games perfect for slumber parties, play mat or cozy cover! Best of all, no game pieces required! You can play all Playtime games with just coins or cut-out paper! And when the day is done, your child will fall asleep with good Playtime thoughts and memories!

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Its never a smooth road theirs always potholes and uneven roads to travel. Our first production run we paid double what it should have cost us to produce are Playtime Bed Sheets.

We were able to sell out, but it left us no money to invest in the next production run so luckily we were able to partner with the manufacturer who covers the manufacturing cost and as a percentage of sale return on each unit sold!

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Playtime Bed Sheets – what should we know?
We created smart bedding bed sheets and slumber bags for kids in various places like Hospitals, homeless shelter, orphanages, RV’s campers, and residential homes.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
My wife and the teachers who helped me create the bed sheets.
