There are versions available for different scenarios, but we think the IVI 3D Play Carpets by Luca and Company come into their own when toy cars are involved.
These are really updated and/or premium versions of playmats that have been around for years, in this case soft carpet that doubles up as a play environment for children. Indeed, the thinking behind them os to ‘promote independent thinking and a traditional process of discovery through play’.
But when you go for the traffic version, it’s all about the toy cars, with the road system laid out and read to go, giving hours (if not months) of fun with their mini motor collection and a carpet-sized small town.
The carpets are pretty substantial at 3 x 5ft, as well as being hypo-allergenic, anti-static, stain resistant and made from a non-flammable material. They aren’t cheap though, selling for $150 online (plus delivery costs, especially if you are outside America like us).
