Babywalking keyboard / carpet

Babywalking keyboard

BABYWALKING KEYBOARD provides a funnier and easier way for babies to learn walking. When learning walking on the floor, a baby may fall down and get hurt. By virtue of its soft material, the piano keyboard-like carpet can avoid their hurt. When a baby steps on one of the keys, the key with pressure induction makes a corresponding sound and the light around the key is turned on. Therefore, the baby will have more drive to learn and the sound can also train babies’ ear. Furthermore, the carpet is powered by solar batteries and the solar panels look just like the black keys of the keyboard.
