What does your business do?

AMPED2PLAY INC. was created as an answer to the critical need in education, health, and business for solutions to account for our loss of physical, cognitive, and social ability to adapt in times of change.

At AMPED2PLAY we believe play is the foundation for growth, adaptation, conflict resolution, connection, and belonging. Without play, we fear uncertainty, difference, and we feel constantly vulnerable.

Our play solutions challenge people to connect or reconnect, their relationship to play, using it as a catalyst for personal, professional, individual, or collective change. We believe that play is when we are most open to taking risks, when we feel our most capable and confident.

How has COVID-19 affected you?

We are a small company of 5 people and we have had to cancel our work with all schools, community and business settings for the time being.
We decided to push forward 3 months early and get our ISO PLAY Box out to families, educators and community leaders who need it now.
We have made it our priority to build and ship as many as possible to help families through this difficult time. We will deliver it right to your door (with gloved hands), or send it through CANADA Post as fast as possible.
We are donating 1$ from every box sold to the COVID-Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization.

What are you doing to adapt?

For connection during times of isolation: the play comes to you.
We are launching our ISOPLAY play box 3 months early by working day and night to get it completed.
We know families need this now more than ever. As a small business we want to make a big difference.
ISOLOVEPLAY provides hundreds of physical, cognitive, and social-emotional play opportunities for individuals who are required to be isolated from friends, family, and social events. Each box includes 20+ play materials, play starters, and endless opportunities for play that have been developed by professionals in practice with over 20 years of experience.
Why play in a box? Play is an essential part of staying engaged during a time of illness or isolation. The ISOLOVEPLAY Box creates an opportunity for playful connection, education, movement, challenge, and success. Each product is intentionally chosen to provide multiple play scenarios, in numerous creative ways.

Families who have already had the ISO PLAY Box in their home have told us it made such a difference to their kids day that day and for so many days after. Families are telling us the importance of having an offline option for kids also makes a huge difference for their time and mental health.

What kind of help do you need?

We just want the word out that we have this available for delivery to your door and that it can make a significant difference to send someone play or bring play into your home. We want people to stay safe physically and keep busy mentally.
Research and experience tells us play can make an enormous difference to our physical and mental health.
If people want to order the ISO PLAY Box for themselves or for another family please take a look:

Carnival Cinemas = movie theatre and virtual reality complex open again!

Published on

After 3 months of cinematic silence, digital projects will again come to life at Carnival Cinemas on Friday night.
“It has been a tough 3 months,” said theatre owner Bill Ramji. “This weekend, we come back to life!”
Movie goers can choose from Trolls World Tour, Sonic the Hedgehog, I Still Believe and the classic 1970s
film E.T.
Carnival Cinemas has kept prices steady at $5 and still offers the same snack bar and games arcade center in addition to Ctrl V, their virtual reality entertainment complex.

“We will still offer the same services as before, for meetings, birthday parties, and other rentals to serve our customers,” said Ramji. “We are ready to be central Red Deer’s entertainment hub.”
Over the last weeks, the Carnival parking lot has been home to food trucks, a move which was initiated last year.
“Having food trucks in our lot gives us good visibility,” added Ramji. “Last year we even had a small collectors market day for local comic book and card collectors.”
Ramji noted that movie goers can go online at https://carnivalcinemas.ca/ to view their current film slate and view online trailers.

Also, we continue to offer Video Treatments, also known as Telehealth or Virtual Health. This allows our clients that need to stay home to access treatment.
