There are lots of different play rugs on the market to choose from, so what makes ours special? In this post we will tell you about the stand out features of the Funfield City Play Rug, through the eyes of parents and children.
1. It's Round!
This may seem like a silly thing to highlight, but the fact that the play rug is circular is unique in a very positive way. The circular shape enables children to continue their adventures on the roads for longer, passing many more shops and venues en route. The circular shape also lends itself well to collaborative play, with children being able to easily reach all areas of the rug.
2. There are so many different places to visit!
We spent a long time planning what to include on the rug. We recognise that children have different passions. We wanted to make sure that there would be something for everyone, so we included it all! From police station to pizza restaurant, and from farm yard to swimming pool, it's all on there! This means that children can explore their imagination in so many different ways.
3. Materials used are safe and comfortable!
At 51 inches this is a large play rug, ideal for Making Time Together. The rug is made from super soft nylon pile, and has a skid proof latex backing. It is so important to us that your children are safe and comfortable when playing.
4. Different types of vehicles can be used, including trains!
The roads on the rug are perfect for Hot Wheels sized cars, but larger vehicles can take up both lanes and still zoom around. One of the standout features is the inclusion of roads and train track. We know that many young vehicle enthusiasts are not happy with just cars. With our rug they can even combine cars and trains at a level crossing!
5. There's broken road!
If you ask any child that uses our play rug, one of their highlights is always using diggers to work on fixing the broken road. This is another great example of how detailed the rug is in order to encourage creative play.
We hope you can see just how fun our play rug is. Our children use this rug everyday and always find new adventures to enjoy together. Stay tuned for a fun play based learning activity using the play rug later in the week.
