MobiKiZ - Mobile Playroom

MobiKiZ is an unconventional response to the lack of space at Goethe University Frankfurt. It was made possible by a donation of €2,000 from BBBank and is equipped with a play rug, wooden toys books, paper and crayons, and a portable DVD player with a programme suitable for children for short periods when mum or dad have work to do on campus or need to attend meetings in person, despite having to look after their children.  

In addition, there are various childcare possibilities at Goethe University Frankfurt as well as further family-conscious infrastructure, such as parent-child rooms and baby changing facilities.  

The AStA (Students’ Union) also has a toy box that you can borrow from the porter’s office or use in Café KoZ.   

What does MobiKiz contain?

What does MobiKiZ contain?  MobiKiZ is available in two versions: as handy pilot cases on wheels or as stable baby changing units, also on wheels, for locations where changing facilities are inadequate. The basic equipment of all MobiKiZ is the same, but individual items differ. The basic equipment includes a play rug, wooden toys, books, paper and crayons and a portable DVD player with a programme suitable for children. The exact contents vary.  

A MobiKiZ pilot's case contains, for example:

> Changing mat
> Building bricks
> Books
> Portable DVD player and headphones
> DVDs  like “Mullewapp”
> Coloured pencils
> Wooden toys
