My daughter is only five but one day, when she came back from the kindergarten she told me something that totally amazed me: “Mom, do you know that Jupiter is my favorite planet in the Solar System?”. I was speechless. I had no idea that she knew what a planet was, but knowing about the Solar System was too much for me. Apparently my girl developed a crush on astronomy and she wanted to know everything about it the first chance she got. So you can imagine I started looking for special posters and rugs for the kids’ room.
To my surprise I found something interesting pretty easily in an online store. Here is the Solar System Rug that you can purchase for about 63 pounds. This rug is perfect for the kids, as it is thick and beautifully colored, but at the same time, it is very realistic, as it respects the geographic shapes and colors of the planets. Of course, the orbit of the planets around the Sun are depicted for scientific purposes, so that they can imagine the exact trajectory of the planets around their star. The point of reference is the Sun itself, places at the base of the carpet with all the revolving planets around it. Pretty colorful, imaginative and also educational, what do you say?
