Detailed description of the proposed utility model
In the accompanying drawings of FIG. 1 of FIG. 11F schematically shows a children’s game center 10 comprising a floor mat 20 and a frame structure 30 that is removably attached to said floor mat 20, wherein the children’s game center 10 is bendable so that it can accept the floor mat 20 of the first configuration (can be seen in FIG. 1 , Fig. 8 and Fig. 11C), in which the said removable frame structure 30 is located essentially in the same plane with the floor mat 20, so that it is possible to perform the function of continuing the last and second configuration (my but see in Fig. 2 - Fig. 7, Fig. 11A, Fig. 11B and Fig. 11D - Fig. 11F), in which the removable frame structure 30 is raised relative to the floor mat 20, so that it is possible to perform at least one a function different from the function that the removable frame structure 30 performs in the first configuration, which will be described in detail below.
The floor mat 20 has a soft cushion-like body having an upper surface 24 (see FIG. 1) and a lower surface 26 (see FIG. 7), so that in the first (flat) configuration of the floor mat 20 (see FIG. 1, FIG. 8 and Fig. 11C) its upper surface 24 is completely accessible for external influences, and its lower surface 26 is protected from such effects, since it faces the floor, soil or other surface on which floor mat 20 can be placed. Floor mat 20 contains the base part 21 and two auxiliary parts 23 and 25. The boundaries between the base part 21 on ol mat 20 and its supporting parts are given the axes A 1 and A 2 (see. FIG. 1, FIG. 2 and FIG. 11C) along which the floor mat 20 is bent with bending the its subsidiary parts 23 and 25 relative to its base portion 21, as described in more detail below. It should be understood that the material of which floor mat 20 is made allows it to be bent along other lines that can be drawn along floor mat 20 (such lines are not shown in the drawings), if such bending is not of any other kind of interference.
The floor mat 20 may be made, for example, of a sponge, of foam, etc., and may be provided with a fabric coating onto which printed or embroidered patterns or patterns suitable for the child may be applied. The upper layer F 1 of said fabric coating (see FIG. 11C) and its lower layer F 2 (see FIG. 11F) may be provided with at least some of their fasteners, for example, those sold under the trademark Velcro ™ , in order to enable the detachable attachment of game elements T (see Fig. 11A, Fig. 11B, Fig. 11D and Fig. 11E).
It should be understood that other illustrations and / or patterns can be applied to the upper layer F 1 and the lower layer F 2 of the fabric coating, and they can be provided with various types of fasteners for attaching toys; in addition, they can be equipped with additional children's entertainment elements so that a children's play mat or a children's play center is obtained — these can be toys that affect the senses, mirrors, pillows, objects that can be nibbled, tactile toys, etc. . The said layers F 1 and F 2 are usually made of impervious to liquids and washable materials.
The frame structure 30 comprises a base portion 31, which has two opposed base elements 31a and 31b and two arched elements 33 and 35.
The frame structure 30 can be made in the form of an integral part, or in the form of a prefabricated unit, the elements of which can be separate elements connected to each other in an integral or detachable manner, while the frame structure is made with the possibility of its bending along the axes A 3 and A 4 (see Fig. 3 and Fig. 11B), which are usually in line with the axes A 1 and A 2 mentioned above, together with them making the connection lines of the arch elements 33 and 35 with the base part 21 of the floor mat 20. The axes mentioned A 3 and A 4 are located at a distance apart from edges 23b and 25b of floor mat 20, respectively, and are spaced apart a distance determined by the base elements 31a and 31b of the frame structure 30.
It seems preferable to such a solution in which the frame structure 30 is made of a material different from the material of which the floor mat 20 is made, in particular, of a material more rigid than the material of the floor mat 20, for example, of plastic, and covered with a woven layer, for example , similar to the one covered with floor mat 20. Alternatively, the frame structure 30 may have core rods that are made from rigid to flexible material, such as steel, fiberglass, plastic, etc. and enclosed in a softening layer made, for example, of a sponge or of foam material, usually placed in a pillowcase made of patterned fabric.
It should be understood that the frame structure 30 may contain only some of the above parts, for example, it may cover only the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 to ensure attachment to its base part 21, or it may cover the base part 21 of the floor mat 20 and only one of its auxiliary parts 23 or 25.
The base members 31a and 31b of the frame structure 30 are connected to the base portion 21 of the floor mat 20 along their opposite edges 21a and 21b (see FIG. 1 and FIG. 11E), respectively, and are substantially the same length as said edges 21a and 21b. In the solutions illustrated in the accompanying drawings from FIG. 1 to FIG. 11F, the base members 31a and 31b of the frame structure 30 are formed by the edge regions of the base portion 21 of the floor mat 20. However, other solutions are possible, such as those illustrated in the accompanying drawings of FIG. 13A to FIG. 14, in which the base members 31a and 31b of the frame structure 30 are detachably attached to the base portion 21 of the floor mat 20.
The arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 according to the external outlines coincide with the corresponding auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 and are made with the possibility of attachment, detachable, to their respective edges 23a, 23b, 23c and 25a, 25b, 25c (see Fig. 2 and Fig. 11E). However, it should be understood that the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 may be given a different shape, and / or they may differ from each other in size and shape.
The fastening elements between the base part 21 of the floor mat 20 and its auxiliary parts 23 and 25 on the one hand and the base part 31 of the frame structure 30 and its arched elements 33 and 35 on the other hand may be fasteners of another type; as such, for example, fasteners marketed under the Velcro ™ trademark, or snap-in snap fasteners, or Velcro tapes, as in the embodiments illustrated in FIG. 13A - FIG. 14. It should also be understood that the frame structure 30 may be further provided with fastening elements instead of or in addition to fastening means of the floor mat 20.
Arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are made with the possibility of bending along the axes A 3 and A 4 , as shown by arrows a 1 and a 2 (see Fig. 3), so that their parallel end edges 33a and 35a (see Fig. 4) can be brought together or become brought into contact with each other. Arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are made with the possibility of a fixed connection with each other at their edges 33A and 33b. To this end, the arch elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are provided with fastening means, which may include fasteners of any type, for example, fasteners marketed under the Velcro ™ trademark, or snap-fastened push-button fasteners, or Velcro tapes, as in the embodiments illustrated in FIG. 13A - FIG. 14. However, it is not necessary that these arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are in contact with each other in a raised position, and they may contain additional fastening means (for example, such as can be seen in Fig. 15A). The proposed children’s play center can optionally be equipped with a fastening means that allows side elements to be fastened together and to control their height above the floor mat (not shown).
The above-described fastening of the arch elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 to each other makes it possible to hold them in a raised position above the floor mat 20 and to prevent their uncontrolled folding.
The raising of the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 can be achieved by any suitable connection with the base part 31 of the frame structure 30 or the base part 21 of the floor mat 21. In particular, the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 can be hinged with the corresponding base by elements 31a and 31b of the frame structure 30 (both constituting the whole with the latter, and in a detachable manner), as shown in the accompanying drawings of FIG. 1 of FIG. 14B. Alternatively, the said arch elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 can be hinged directly with the base part 21 of the floor mat 20 (as can be seen, for example, in Fig. 15A, and as will be described in more detail below) in spaced apart relative to each other mounting points .
Children's play center 10 can be made with the possibility of changing its shape with the adoption of various configurations, each of which is determined by the position of the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 and / or the position of the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 with respect to each other and the base portion 21 of the floor mat 21. In particular, the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 may be raised, while the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 remain in the same plane as the base portion 21 of the floor mat o mat 20 (see FIG. 2, FIG. 6, FIG. 11A and FIG. 11E), or the raised position may be attached to the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 together with one or both auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat ( see Fig. 3, Fig. 4, Fig. 5, Fig. 7, Fig. 11B, Fig. 11D and Fig. 11F), thereby creating different configurations of the children's game center 10, as will be described in detail below.
In the configuration of the children's game center 10 illustrated in FIG. 1 and FIG. 11C, the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20, together with the corresponding arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30, are in the same plane as the base part 21 of the floor mat 20, forming a flat floor mat. In this configuration, the frame structure 30 is attached to the floor mat 20 along its entire periphery and serves as a continuation of the floor mat 20.
In the configuration of the children's game center 10 illustrated in FIG. 2 and FIG. 11E, the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 are in the same plane as the base part 21 of the floor mat 20, while the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are raised in relation to the base part of the floor mat 20, so that their end edges 33a and 35a are brought into contact with each other over the base part 21 of the floor mat 20. With this arrangement, the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 with the base part 21 of the floor mat 20 form angles a 1 and a 2 (see Fig. 2), respectively . Said edges 33a and 35a are fixedly bonded to each other, as described above. In such a configuration, the children's play center 10 is used as a game mat, in which the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 serve as game arches mounted above the floor mat 20. As can be seen in FIG. 11A and FIG. 11E, the arch element 33 of the frame structure 30 may be provided with openings which are intended for tying the game elements (toys) T. It should be understood, however, that both arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 may be provided with such openings, or for removable attaching the hanging game elements (toys) T, other means can be used (for example, the means that can be seen in Fig. 13A, Fig. 13B and Fig. 14).
In the configuration of the children's game center 10 illustrated in FIG. 3 and FIG. 11B, the raised position is only given to the arch element 35 of the frame structure 30, while the arched element 33 of the frame structure 30 remains in the same plane as the base portion 21 of the floor mat 20.
In the configuration of the children's game center 10 illustrated in FIG. 6 and FIG. 11A, the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 are bent under the base part 21 of the floor mat 20, which results in the creation of a soft and compact game mat, the dimensions and shape of which correspond to the dimensions and shape of the base part 21 of the floor mat 20.
In FIG. 9 and FIG. 10, the children's play center 10 is shown in a configuration providing its portable state, in which the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 and the arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are folded to form a flat bag, which can also be equipped with a handle 81 (see FIG. 10) or a bag (not shown), so that it is possible to easily carry the children's play center 10. As can be seen in FIG. 8, a children’s play center 10, both with and without a frame structure 30, can be rolled up.
In the configuration of the children's game center 10 illustrated in FIG. 4, FIG. 7 and FIG. 11F, both arched elements 33 and 35 of the frame structure 30 are given an inclined position together with the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 with the formation of a tent or tunnel for creeping as if having walls of height h 1 . In this configuration, the upper surfaces 23 ′ and 25 ′ (can be seen in FIG. 4, FIG. 11C and FIG. 11F) of the respective auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 face inward, to the base portion 21 of the floor mat 20, while the lower surfaces 23 ″ and 25 ″ (in FIG. 4, FIG. 7 and FIG. 11F, only the surface 23 ″ can be seen) are facing outward and can form a panel for gaming activity having gaming zones 70 (can be seen in FIG. 7 and Fig. 11F), which can be made with the possibility of removable attachment of game elements (games ears) T (see. Fig. 11F), or to provide children with the opportunity to carry out game activities of a different kind.
A box-shaped configuration can be given to the children’s game center 10 (can be seen in FIG. 5 and FIG. 11D), in which the auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 are attached to the respective arched elements 33 and 35 only along parts of their side edges. In particular, the auxiliary part 23 of the floor mat 20 is attached to the arch element 33 of the frame structure 30, respectively, along the parts 27a and 27b (see FIG. 5 and FIG. 11D) of its side edges 23a and 23c, while its edge 23b is not attached to the arch element 33, and is bent towards the base part 21 of the floor mat 20. The auxiliary part 25 of the floor mat 20 is attached to the arch element 35 of the frame structure 30, respectively, along the parts 29a and 29b (not visible in the drawings) of its side edges 25a and 25c, while its edge 25b is not attached to the arched element 35, and is bent towards the base part 21 of the floor mat 20. Inverted auxiliary parts 23 and 25 of the floor mat 20 form side walls of height h 2 , which is less than the height h 1 created by the tunnel configuration.
In FIG. 12A - FIG. 12G depicts a children's play center 90, which differs from the above-described children's play center 10 only in the oval shape of the auxiliary parts 91 and 93 of the floor mat and arched elements 95 and 97 of the frame structure.
In FIG. 13A, FIG. 13B and FIG. 14 illustrates other configurations of children's play centers according to the proposed utility model. For reasons of convenience, those elements of the children's play centers 100 and 200 that are similar to the elements of the children's play center 10 are provided with similar numerical reference signs obtained by adding them to the number 100 or 200 (adding the number “1” or “2” in front), respectively.
In the configuration of the children's gaming center 100 illustrated in FIG. 13A and FIG. 13B, the arched elements 133 and 135 of the frame structure 130 are made with mating parts 134 and 136, which can be made of partially or fully breathable material, for example, mesh fabric, for removably attaching auxiliary parts 123 and 125 of the floor mat 120 to them. This the solution is that the edges 123b and 125b of the respective auxiliary parts 123 and 125 of the floor mat 120 are detachably attached to said mating parts 134 and 136 near the edges 134a and 136a, while the side edges 123a and 123c and the side edges one 25a (not visible) and 125c are removably attached to respective arched elements 133 and 135 of the frame structure 130.
The floor mat 120 is provided with fastening strips 141, which are configured to cover the corresponding arched elements 133 and 135 of the frame structure 130, thereby providing the possibility of their fastening to each other with the possibility of separation. It should be understood, however, that said releasable bond may also be provided with other type of fasteners, for example fasteners marketed under the Velcro ™ trademark, or snap-fastened snap fasteners.
As for the means of fastening the auxiliary parts 123 and 125 of the floor mat 120 to the mating parts 134 and 136, any type of fastening elements, for example, fastening elements marketed under the Velcro ™ trademark, snap-fastening push-button fasteners, can also be used as such type, or zippers. One example of such a bond is illustrated in FIG. 14, in this example, the mating parts 234 and 236 (not visible in the drawing) are attached to the auxiliary parts 223 and 225 of the floor mat with fixing strips 241, similar to the fixing strips 141 mentioned above.
Said mating parts 134 and 136 are also provided with toy holders 140 (see FIG. 13A), which are made in the form of loops with which game elements (toys) T can be removably attached to these mating parts 134 and 136.
In FIG. 13A illustrates a children’s game center 100, which is given a box-shaped configuration similar to that of the children’s game center 10, which is illustrated in FIG. 11D, wherein the auxiliary parts 123 and 125 of the floor mat are bent to form two opposing walls around the base part 121 of the floor mat.
The structural solution of FIG. 14 of the children’s game center 200 is basically similar to the design of the above-mentioned children’s game center 100, differing from the latter mainly in that the base elements 231a and 231b of the base part 231 of the frame structure are detachably attached to the base part 221 of the floor mat with fixing strips 243.
In addition, the arched elements 233 and 235 of the frame structure are provided with fastening strips 251, which enable these arched elements to be attached, in a detachable manner, to the auxiliary parts 223 and 225 of the floor mat.
In the accompanying drawings of FIG. 15A of FIG. 19B illustrates yet another configuration of a children's gaming center 300 according to the proposed utility model.
Said children's play center 300 comprises a floor mat 320 (see FIG. 15A, FIG. 17A and FIG. 18) similar to the floor mats 20, 120 and 220 discussed above, and a frame structure 330 that is connected to the floor mat 320 with the possibility of separation.
Mentioned floor mat 320 contains a base part 321 and two auxiliary parts 323 and 325 and is configured to bend along the axes L 1 and L 2 , which are sewn along the said bending axes L 1 and L 2 and divide the floor mat 320 into said base part 321 and auxiliary parts 323 and 325.
The frame structure 330 of the children's play center 300 in question comprises: a first arched element 341 that is releasably attached to the base portion 321 of the floor mat 320 at attachment points 302 and 304 located adjacent to the bend axis L 1 and located at a distance from the edge 323a of the auxiliary portion 323 floor mat 320, and a second arched element 345, which is detachably attached to the base portion 321 of floor mat 320 at attachment points 306 and 308 located adjacent to the bend axis L 2 and at some distance from the edge 325a of the auxiliary portion 325 of the floor mat 320. The attachment points 302 and 306 and the attachment points 304 and 308 of the respective arched elements 341 and 343 of the frame structure 330 are spaced apart from each other by the length of the respective edges 321a and 321b of the base portion 321 of the floor mat 320.
As shown in FIG. 15B, the arched elements 341 and 343 of the frame structure 330 form imaginary surfaces S 1 and S 2 , respectively, the corresponding base lines 391 and 393 of which are located on a straight line with the previously mentioned inflection axes L 1 and L 2 , and the aforementioned surfaces S 1 and S 2 form acute angles β 1 and β 2 with the base portion 321 of the floor mat 320 (these angles may also be right).
It should be understood, however, that the location of the mentioned baselines 391 and 393 of the surfaces S 1 and S 2 on a straight line with the axes L 1 and L 2 is not a requirement, and they can be located parallel to these bend axes or at an angle to them. Alternatively, the baselines 391 and 393 of the surfaces S 1 and S 2 may be located on a straight line with the corresponding edges 321a and 321b of the floor mat 320.
Each of the arched elements 341 and 343 contains a rigid core (not visible), which is made of hard to flexible material, for example, steel, fiberglass, plastic, etc. and enclosed in a softening layer made, for example, of a sponge or of foam material, usually placed in a pillowcase (shell) of patterned fabric.
Arched elements 341 and 343 are attached to floor mat 320 using push-button fastening means 350 (see FIG. 16A and FIG. 16B). In particular, the arched elements 341 and 343 are provided with fixing flaps 351 and 353 (not visible), respectively (see FIG. 16A), which are bent for detachable attachment by push-button fixing means to the bottom surface 326 of floor mat 320. It should be understood however, it is possible to use other fasteners, for example fasteners, marketed under the trademark Velcro ™.
Arched elements 341 and 343 are equipped with toy holders 345 (see Fig. 15A), which are made in the form of loops, with which game elements (toys) T can be removably attached to these arched elements.
The frame structure 330 also includes a mating part 370 of the arch elements 341 and 343, which is fixedly connected to the arched elements 341 and 343 along their upper sections 342 and 344, respectively, the mating part 370 to them sewn. It seems preferable to such a solution in which the mating part 370 of the arch elements is partially or fully made of partially or fully breathable material, for example, of mesh fabric.
It should be understood that the mating portion 370 of the arched elements can be fastened to the arched elements, fixed or removable, using any other fastening means.
The mating part 370 of the arch elements is provided with toy holders 373, which are made in the form of loops, with which the game elements (toys) T can be removably attached to this mating part 370.
The frame structure 330 may also include connecting means 360, which is detachably attached to the arched elements 341 and 343 and is configured to fix the latter in the transverse direction relative to the base portion 321 of the floor mat 320. In the configuration illustrated in the accompanying drawings of FIG. 15A of FIG. 17C, the arched elements 341 and 343 are fixed at a distance from each other, however, it should be understood that they can be detachably fixed directly to each other, for example, as described above when considering children's play centers 10, 100 and 200.
Said connecting means 360 of arched elements 341 and 343 comprises a pair of fastening elements 362 and 364. Said fastening elements 362 and 364 are provided with a pair of retainers 363 and 365 arranged to be supported on arched elements 341 and 343 of the frame structure 330 due to friction. Said fastening elements 362 and 364 are made of rigid material, for example, plastic.
With this technical solution in the assembled state, the arched elements 341 and 343 of the frame structure 330 are attached to the base part 321 of the floor mat 320, so that the mating part 370 extends between them, and said fastening elements 362 and 364 are fastened to the arched elements 341 and 343 to provide them fixing relative to the floor mat 320 and keeping them at a distance from each other. In this design, the mating portion 370 of the arched elements 341 and 343 serves as a permeable roof filling the space between the arched elements 341 and 343.
In the construction shown in FIG. 17A, FIG. 17B and FIG. 17C, the auxiliary parts 323 and 325 of the floor mat 320 are removably connected to the arched elements 341 and 343 using strips tied to the arched elements 341 and 343, fixed to the floor mat 320 at the periphery of the latter. Accordingly, the children's play center 300 may take different configurations depending on whether all or only some of the strips 381 are tied to the arched elements 341 and 343, so that the children's play center accepts the following configurations: the partially closed configuration shown in FIG. 17A (similar to the configuration shown in FIG. 3 and FIG. 11B), the tunnel configuration illustrated in FIG. 17B (similar to the configuration illustrated in FIG. 5, FIG. 11E and FIG. 13A), and the tent configuration illustrated in FIG. 17C (similar to the configuration illustrated in FIG. 4, FIG. 7, FIG. 11F and FIG. 13B).
As mentioned above in the description of other children's play centers according to the proposed utility model, in such configurations in which at least one of the auxiliary parts 323 and 325 of the floor mat 320 is attached to the corresponding arched element 341, 343 of the frame structure 330, its lower surface may operate as a game pad 322 (see FIG. 17C), as it is provided with various game elements, such as toys, removably attached to the game pad 322, pockets, Velcro sections, or any other children’s entertaining elements so that it turns out a children's play mat and / or children's play center - these can be toys that affect the senses, mirrors, pillows, objects that can be nibbled, tactile toys, etc.
Auxiliary parts of the floor mat can be detachably attached, directly or indirectly, to the arched elements of the frame structure using any other suitable means, as described above in the description of children's play centers 10, 100 and 200. For example, the fastening elements 362, the mating part 370 and / or 264 and arched elements 341 and 343 may be provided with fastening means, such as fasteners marketed under the Velcro ™ trademark or fastening strips that are removably attached to the corresponding means for attaching auxiliary parts to the floor mat.
The frame structure 330 is completely detachable from the floor mat 320, as can be seen in FIG. 18, FIG. 19A and FIG. 19B. The technical solution consists in the fact that the fastening elements 362 and 364 are made with the possibility of detaching from the arched elements 341 and 343, and the arched elements 341 and 343 together with the mating part 370 are made with the possibility of detaching from the floor mat 320. In this configuration, the floor mat 320 and arched elements 341 and 343 may be folded for carrying (see FIG. 19A and FIG. 19B). It should be noted in this connection that the mating part 370 is laid between the arched elements 341 and 343 (see FIG. 19A), so that it does not interfere with their approach.
It should be understood that any of the structural elements 10, 100, 200, and 300 mentioned in the description of the children's game centers can be applied, separately or in combination with others, in any of their configurations and modifications. In addition, all of the above-mentioned children’s game centers according to the proposed utility model may be assigned any of the configurations described above.
It should also be understood that the location of the junctions of the arched elements is not limited to those points indicated above. For example, each arched element can be connected to the floor mat at the same edge.
