TUKLUKS – VERSATILE, AWARD-WINNING PLAY MATS FOR EVER-NEW, IMAGINATIVE REASSEMBLY

Vienna, July 2016 – Tukluks encourage kids to grasp basic shapes in a playful way and to lend their dreams tangible, three-dimensional shape. Now, the Viennese toy manufacturer Tukluk (tukluk.eu) behind it all extends its innovative concept from children’s room to institutional use. The robust Tukluks Pro version was designed especially for hard-wearing use in kindergartens, schools, museums and other institutions.

DURABLE, SUSTAINABLE AND TÜV-TESTED

“We only use extremely tough and hard-wearing materials for our Tukluks Pro that are suitable for long-term, sustainable use“, states Benedikt Kirsch, product designer and managing director of Tukluk GmbH. “For us, watching the sheer joy and ingenuity that kids exhibit when playing with Tukluks remains our greatest validation. Now, with our Tukluks Pro, we want to take this experience beyond the children’s room.” All Tukluks are tested by TÜV Austria (the Austrian Technical Control Board) and have received the GS certificate for verified safety.

PATENTED SYSTEM FOR ONE-OF-A-KIND PLAYING ENJOYMENT

The versatile Tukluks Pro are at home in a wide variety of use scenarios for kids aged 0-12. From cuddly corner for tired explorers to rocket-like magic castles conjured up by enthusiastic budding master builders, (almost) anything is possible with these soft play mats. Thanks to their secure, patented magnet system, the mats are easily joined and detached, making Tukluks Pro a valuable play object for any pedagogic and institutional facility.

TUKLUKS HELP KIDS CREATE FANTASTIC WORLDS AND DEVELOP THEIR SPATIAL IMAGINATION

Munich-based child and youth therapist Franziska Pötsch on using the Tukluks Pro: “Playing with Tukluks encourages kids to realise their own ideas in a creative way and gives them a tool to express their enchanted inner world. Tukluks promote cognitive skills, spatial imagination and a sense of how construction works. At the same time, it also develops their social skills – with Tukluks, children experience that doing things together is fun, encouraging them to cooperate and enjoy their play.”
