GGUMBI / Playmat


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The GGUMBI playmats are designed for kids. Before launching our product, there were no mats like ours. They were just simple mats having one function. Instead, our bumper mats can be transformed into twelve different forms. Children can play with it in many different ways, e.g. transforming the mat into a playing area or a tunnel. Moreover, it is not an ordinary mat like a door mat or a Yoga mat. It features a Nordic design and diverse functions. You can see the differences through uploaded images and a video file.
