Ruggish Play Rugs - A Stylish Way to Play

$78,833

388

As an Interior Designer and Architect, we wanted our baby to be stylish, and well protected. When it came to play mats, the only options that existed were colorful, foam tiles that are easy to pull apart by little ones, and the cracks collect crumbs, dirt, and liquid.  

When we decided to replace our trendy cowhide rug and create our own, the Ruggish Play Rug was born! 

Designer rugs can cost thousands of dollars, but they don't offer the cushion and durability of a play mat.  Our one-piece play mat offers the look of a rug and the feel of a play mat, allowing you to swap out your expensive rug for a long lasting, aesthetically pleasing, protective product that's a fraction of the price.

Each rug is 4'-6" x 6'-10", and available in two patterns, each with a modern map on the flip side.  

When you purchase through Kickstarter, you will get PRE-MARKET DISCOUNTS. Pricing will increase after our successful campaign!

LULU: simple and geometric, easily transitions into almost any décor!

How our rugs are unlike anything on the market:

  • A ONE-PIECE play mat, the size of a standard rug: 4'-6" x 6'-10"

  • 2-in-1, a stylish RUG with an INTERACTIVE MAP on the backside.

  • HAND CRAFTED FRINGE on our Romy Rug, a KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!

  • Durable, WATERPROOF, easy to wipe (or even hose!) down

  • A layer of MEMORY FOAM provides more cushion than any foam tile, and an exceptionally COMFORTABLE place to play.  Successfully passes the "Egg Test"!

  • Many families even report using them to WORK OUT or sneak in a NAP!

  • NON-TOXIC materials that are free of BPA, Phthalate, Lead, Latex, Formaldehyde and EVA. 

  • Tested to EUROPEAN TOY STANDARDS (higher than USA!)

  • 1-YEAR WARRANTY included, although the product has proven to last much longer!

We've done the research to find the best material for our Rugs:

Over the past two years, we have researched hundreds of samples, looking for a material that can achieve the durability, look and feel that exceeds market standards and home décor expectations. 

Here's what families have said about our Ruggish Play Rugs:

"We LOVE our Ruggish Play Rug!  We have a One-Bedroom, so the Living Room is also the Play Room and it makes me feel almost human again (plus it is so comfortable to lie down on with the babe)!"

-Lisa (and Juniper) from San Francisco

One of the best products I have as a Mom of a toddler and a very vengeful, jealous dog!  My husband said, "Can we fill the house with these?" and he absolutely hates rugs of any kind!"  

-Tien (and Luella +Shelby) from San Francisco

"We are thrilled to no longer have to clean within the cracks of foam tiles anymore!  Not only do our kids love our Ruggish Play Rug, but we love having a comfortable place to join them to play, and work out, too!"

-Lisa (and Dylan +Spencer) from Los Angeles

"When we first had our son, he played on a puzzle piece floor mat because it's the only type of playmat we could find on the market. As he became more curious, he pulled the tiles apart every chance he got, resulting in a frustrated mommy and baby bumps and bruises caused by the hardwood floor underneath. The Ruggish Play Rug quickly become our favorite baby accessory! We love the material because it allows our son to play freely with plenty of cushion and a protective barrier that isn't compromised by his active hands and feet. It's so easy to clean and looks amazing with the transitional style of our home!"    

-Jessica (and Liam) from Dallas

 FAQ: 

How does Kickstarter work? Where does my money go?

Pledge your support or purchase a Ruggish Play Rug, and your money will go toward our large manufacturing minimum.  You will be charged once the successful campaign closes after 30 days. Kickstarter is all or nothing, if we do not raise our goal, you will not be charged!

Are the rug's environmentally safe? 

Yes!  They do not contain BPA, Lead, Latex Formaldehyde or EVA.  They have been tested to European Toy Standards EN71 and can even be recycled (at participating locations) to create new products, such as flip flops! 

Can I use this outside?  

The Ruggish Play Rug is definitely a great place to sit and play outside, but it should not be left in direct sunlight for a long period of time, as it could fade. 

Can pets use the Ruggish Play Rug? 

We have not done formal testing with pets, but sharp objects, such as pet nails, may pierce the material, so it is not receommended. 

THANK YOU! 

This process would not have been possible if it weren't for the support of so many!  

 

 

Risks and challenges

Our manufacturer has successfully been in business for two decades and for the past two years, we have been working closely to build a strong personal relationship. They know the drill, and do it well, making us feel confident that we will have a smooth process.

Final product will vary slightly from prototype, but we will keep you in the loop with photos and updates as production progresses.

There is always the possibility that a production deadline will be delayed, have issues with equipment, or be held up in transit. We will do everything we can to get products out on time.
