MOTHERHOOD: Tech-Free Playtime that Will Inspire Your Child

In Features, Motherhood, Stories by Jessica Jane Sammut

We’ve mentioned in the past that the IVI Play rugs are one of our fave finds from UrbanBaby (our kids spend hours playing on them). Have these tech-free rugs been on your wish list, too? Read on as we have a great offer for you …

Put simply, the IVI Interactive Play Rug allow kids to have good old-fashioned fun without batteries or screen time. Going tech-free will encourage your child to grow their creativity in a safe environment and also encourage play and interactivity with other children.

What distinguishes the IVI Play Rugs from other play carpets is they have different thickness and textures, making them very tactile and more fun to play with. Kids can take out their little cars, furniture from doll or farm house sets and even cake toppers along with bits and bobs from around the house to bring their imaginary world to life.

The IVI Rugs are available in various designs and sizes – here are our top picks:

IVI Play Rug in Mini City

This is the city that never sleeps! Homes along with an airport, helipad, parks and ocean (marina included!) ensure there’s plenty of fun to be had with the little ones.

IVI Play Rug in Twin Houses

A duplex by the beach? Hello! These homes are so gorgeous, we wish this was real-life. A white sandy beach complete with sun lounges will make playtime a breeze. The only decision-making here is which doll will score their own bedroom?


IVI Play Rug in Traffic Blue or Traffic Green

Featuring a typical neighbourhood with homes, a soccer field, parks, basketball court, parking lots and of course, roads. So when do you want to move in? BYO dolls and cars.

IVI Play Rug in Farm

After a change of scenery? This little beauty features a farmhouse by the creek where the ducks live happily and the greenery provides the best backdrop for picnic, horse-riding and animals grazing.


There are other several other designs available too such as soccer, playhouse and racer.
