You may think you've covered the basics with your stroller, crib and diaper bag. But one nursery item you'll reach for over and over again will be your play mat.
A play station, a resting area and a makeshift blanket for baby, a high quality play mat will be one of the most treasured items in your nursery. If you're looking to add a new play mat to your home, or gift one to an expecting friend or new parent, here are the key things you need to look out for when choosing your baby play mat.
Lightweight and portable
You'll find that you're often moving your play mat around the home with you. When you need to be in lounge, kitchen or another room, you'll need a lightweight and easily portable mat that you can bring along so baby can happily rest and play while you go about your errands. A vegan leather play mat makes for an ideal lightweight mat, compared to heavier foam mats.
A Quilted Vegan Leather Play mat is a versatile and easy to clean (just wipe off all the droolling) accessory for your baby. Made from high-quality vegan leather, this play mat provides a safe and comfortable surface for your little one to play, crawl, and explore.
Matches the decor and aesthetic of your nursery and home
Not only do you want a vegan leather play mat that matches the theme and decor of your nursery, you'll want to make sure it also matches the aesthetic of your home. Do you love bright colors, or do you prefer your home to have more of a neutral color scheme?
Easy to clean
No doubt, you'll find that you are constantly cleaning your baby play mat. To ensure you're not wasting precious time, it's important to choose a mat that you can clean with minimal fuss. Choose one that you won't need to do another load of laundry.
Generously padded and sized
Your baby play mat will see a lot of love - from playtime, to nap time, you need a mat that can sufficiently support baby's various activities. Ensure you choose a comfortably padded mat that will provide a soft and thick surface to protect baby from cold or hard floors.
You'll also want to ensure the mat is large enough for baby to comfortably move around without fear of rolling off. Our Play Mat comes in a generous size of 120 cm / 53 inches, so there's plenty of space for baby to rest, roll and play.
