Babies and young children spend a lot of time at floor level. Whether crawling, creeping, rolling, or taking an impromptu nap, we want their space to be comfortable, clean, and to entice them into play and motivate them to new milestones. These soft, washable mats pad hard floors for gentler falls, make for comfortable floor spaces that are easier to clean than carpeting, and invite imaginative play with bright, intriguing colors and patterns. Thin mats are great for younger children who are just learning to crawl or walk, while thick padded mats make great indoor or outdoor exercise spaces for older children getting involved in gymnastics, dance, tumbling, or martial arts.
Foam mats are comfortable and versatile, and this brightly colored, American made version is sure to satisfy. Plush enough to soften falls on hard floors for beginning crawlers and walkers, or for lining a play yard for indoor or outdoor use, it transitions easily for use protecting flooring, especially carpeting, from older children and messier play. Keep paints, crayons, and other art supplies from staining floors without discouraging creative play.
Sometimes early crawlers need some incentive to get up and moving. Learning to crawl is hard work, after all! This baby mat flips up at the edges, allowing you to “fence in” toys, teethers, and rattles, or create a mini ball pit on the floor. Gently throw toys from one side to the other, and encourage little ones to move and explore. Set a musical toy, or one with bright flashing lights just out of reach, and watch those little movers get excited to try again.
