Welcome to your kiez
kiez is a Berlin colloquialism referring to one’s immediate neighborhood. Hence, kinderkiez is about your neck of the woods from a kid’s perspective. It’s an online tool that allows you to create a physical play mat based on your actual surroundings. In order to achieve this we combine real geodata with the unique and amazing illustrations of children’s book author Laura Bednarski.
Play, learn & discover
kinderkiez is not just great for playing, it’s also great for learning: Discover the way to school or to Grandma’s, reinact the traffic jam down the road or drive your matchbox cars to your favorite playground.
By providing child-friendly representation of the actual neighborhood kinderkiez encourages the development of geo-spatial awareness and offers a foundation for geographical understanding.
kinderkiez play mats are made in Germany. The material offers the perfect mix for our purposes. It allows a high quality printing process ensuring that all details are visible. It’s hard enough for driving cars and soft enough for resting knees. It has durable, premium surface and a slip-proof latex back. It’s washable at 30°C – so a pair of dirty shoes won’t mean the end of the kiez.
Make your own kinderkiez in just a few easy steps.
