We were thrilled to be included in their review recently of the best baby activity mats. Yes we love being included - even better when we win their awards - but honestly it is the testers honest feedback which we make a beeline for... you'll see just some of their thoughts below ☺
Munchkin and Bear Luxe padded play mat, from £94.95
– best for comfort
Age: From birth | Awards: Gold – Nursery accessory, MadeForMums Awards 2021
What it is: A durable play-mat that is suitable for any room, provides insulation from cold floors, is waterproof and wipe-clean. It’s made of non-toxic, shock-absorbing material, with a 1.5cm-thick foam core. It is available in two sizes (Medium: 1.4m x 1m x 1.5cm thick (2.4kg) and large: 2m x 1.4m x 1.5cm thick (4.8kg).
Why we love it: This mat is perfect for those with hard-wood floors – or even those who have carpets they want to protect from baby mess! It’s much less frustrating to use – and prettier – than the classic jigsaw mats that do the same thing.
Not only is it a safe, comfortable place for your baby to play, it looks great and can be used as a yoga mat, too!
Ify, MFM tester and mum to Eliana, 7 months, says,
“Eliana is more mobile being on the play-mat, as she is able to practise her crawling every day. Eliana and her elder sister sit on the mat and play together. It is worth the money in the sense that it is very easy to maintain. You literally just have to wipe down with a damp cloth, and because of how it is made it doesn’t absorb dirt or liquid, so you don’t need to bother about how to keep it clean constantly.”
Julie, MFM tester and mum to Geraint, aged 21 months, says,
“I’d be very surprised to come across anything better in the form of a play mat! You certainly see the quality in the product from the minute you open the box. It feels almost like a plush carpet.”
