My Top 3 Playroom Mirrors & The Benefits of Mirror Play for Children Development

Updated: Nov 15, 2023

Are you setting up a play area for your little one(s) aged from infancy to 6 years? As a Playroom Designer and Early Childhood Educator, I highly recommend adding a mirror to the mix! Children LOVE looking at themselves in the mirror but it's not just for the added fun, there are critical developmental benefits to consider.


Mirrors play a vital role in fostering various aspects of Children's Development, including brain development, spatial awareness, empathy, motor skills, and the cultivation of confidence.

And much more! Join me as I share my top 3 picks for kid-friendly room mirrors, each selected to enrich your child's developmental journey.


This mirror comes in two sizes and two options of either the white or black frame. I love the oversized mirror as it provides so much space and opportunity for mirror play. This one is also a great option for basement playrooms as it helps to bounce light around the room making the space feel bigger and brighter.

I love this mirror! It is a great size and the curved oval shape adds some softness to any room. This mirror comes in three different frame options including black, white, and gold.

I have been using these mirrors for years! I used to use them in my kindergarten classroom and have been using them with our kids at home in so many different ways. We have painted on them, added them to sensory play, taken them outside, put infant sensory bottles on top of them and so much more. There are so many possibilities! These mirrors aren't very large however, they are acrylic making them super safe to use with kids and they are very affordable! I would say that they are a must-have for any kid's space!
