It’s not often that I come across a product that I fall head over heels in love with, but this is one that I have found myself talking about nonstop since it’s arrival, even to my non-parent friends!
A month or so ago I was on the hunt for a play mat for my nephew. We had a regular one – you know the type – one that starts as a baby gym with arches and dangly toys and once your small person can sit up you remove the arches and are left with a small scrap of a mat with tickly bits and scrunchy bits and squeaky bits. We got to that point with he didn’t like it. The mat we already had wasn’t what we wanted at all. The downstairs of our house is all solid wood and stone floors and it just wasn’t thick or big enough for my roly polying little madam, but I couldn’t find anything suitable for love nor money so I made do and improvised with a king size duvet underneath for extra padding.
This did the trick, but looked an absolute shambles – and the extra padding may have protected madam from the hard floors but the whole thing still wasn’t big enough now that she was on the move.
Then, as if by magic, an email popped up in my inbox from a company called Squishy Mat. – makers of luxury memory foam play mats for babies – asking me whether I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. As soon as I looked at their website I realised that this mat was exactly what I had been looking for.
If you are looking for a play mat I would wholeheartedly recommend you check this company out. If, like us, you have hard floors at home then this is an essential! No other play mat out there compares to this one. Squishy Mat. Baby Play Mats are available to buy from the Squishy Mat. shop here starting at $34.95 for The Skinny Mini
