Play Mats

You might like to purchase a play mat for a number of reasons including ensuring baby has their own defined space to relax on, to encourage tummy time and crawling, for more than one child to play together on, to take away for play at Grandparents etc, or to have enough space for you and baby to spend eye to eye quality time together. Predominately, play mats are chosen for their contribution in strengthening neck and back muscles in addition to balance skills through tummy time activities. Therefore, many of the mats come with pillows in a half moon shape designed to help support baby in these initial stages. Different textured sections and colours on the mat also help to encourage exploration face down in addition to interactive sections that for example sound when pressed. This all helps in the stages leading up towards crawling and movement.

If you are still unsure about which play mat to go for we have a few more thoughts that might help you in your decision-making. As you know tummy time is a very important activity in baby’s development and as such its best to choose the play mat that you think your baby will engage most in. So choosing bright colours and in particular those mats that offer different themes and sections within it can be good in keeping baby’s continued interest and motivation to move over to the next. With large play mats such as the ‘Tiny Love Discovery Mat’ this is easier to achieve but when baby is very little so much space might be daunting so lying down with baby on it or perhaps folding it in half and making it a cosier environment should resolve this in the early days. There are a few playmats available such as the ‘Taf Toys 4 Seasons Mat’ that has fold up side features creating a cosy zone for baby with soft pictured walls around. If your main interest in a play mat is to develop the neck and back muscles you might like to consider the very unique ‘Lamaze Spin and Explore Garden Gym’ which has a rotating tummy time base that baby rests on and can literally spin horizontally 360’ through the centre of the mat viewing all it’s different sections and the activities within each.

Some mats come with baby safe mirrors so this too will encourage baby to stay on their front and engage their interest in this new friend. Also look out for baby play mats that come with a tummy time pillow as these help to aid baby being on their front and supports while they develop their own muscles to do this. All of the Bright Starts play mats come with a support pillow and the Bright Starts Tummy Cruiser (available in pink and neutral) goes a step further in providing an interesting and interactive view with its raised activity dashboard. When choosing a play mat also look for added value extras included with the mat such as teether toys, peek a boo sections, musical rewards, and different textured surfaces. You can have confidence in your choice as all the brands that we stock are all well renowned and provide for wonderful safe play. With prices from £10 to £50 we hope you can find one that suits all of your and your baby’s requirements.
