MATERIALS & SAFETY
Are your baby play mats non-toxic? Do they contain any heavy metals, pthalates or other nasties?
- Firstly, we take the safety of babies and children incredible seriously. We developed our own baby play mats with this in mind, after we were very unhappy with the strong chemical smell of other products we purchased for our own children that were made of PVC and EVA
- Our Munchkin & Bear baby play mats are made from PU (polyurethane) and are certified as non-toxic
- The use of PU (polyurethane) compared to PVC (polyvinyl chloride) creates a safer play mat for your children, without the harmful and toxic chemicals, however still allows for a durable and hard-wearing mat which can be easily wiped clean
- They have been independently tested and have passed the European Toy Safety Standards - EN71-1, EN71-2 and EN71-3.
- Additionally, as our baby mats are one solid piece (not puzzle pieces) they won’t end up being in your babies mouth being chewed.

USING YOUR PLAY MAT
What's the best way to clean our play mats?
- Gently wipe with a cloth or sponge using mild soap and water.
- Please pop over to see our cleaning tips for more information. Please stay clear of bleach / alcohol based or abrasive cleaners.
Is it okay to have underfloor heating?
- Yes, we have it here at HQ! Please note: very high temperatures / prolonged use may have an adverse affect on the mat.
Can I take my play mat outside?
- While they are designed to be left down within your home, they can be rolled and moved easily - particularly the medium play mat.
- Keep an eye on anything sharp when you put it down so the waterproof surface doesn't get punctured.
- The mats are NOT designed for outdoor use and should not be left outside.
- Please note: direct or prolonged sunlight & very high temperatures can cause deterioration of the play mat
Is it easy to roll & move my play mat?
- Your play mat arrives with velcro straps - keep them so if you want to roll your mat up you can secure it and move it simply.
- They are also lightweight so easily portable (medium mats are less than 3kg and large mats under 5kg)
What about pets & my play mat?
We have lots of customers with dogs, cats and other animals who have been 100% fine with their play mats. However it is possible for an animal to break to the surface layer with their claws (and clearly teeth if they like chewing things!). We don’t warranty for animal damage as we just can’t know how different pets will respond to them. Take a look at our video here to hear a little more or feedback from one of our customers here.

Can your baby play mats be ordered in custom colours or sizes?
- The lead time to produce our baby play mats is around 4 months. They are produced in large numbers and unfortunately this makes it impossible to take custom orders or mix and match colours or designs
- We would LOVE to hear your ideas for future designs and colour combinations though - drop us an email on email@example.com
Do you accept stockist enquiries?
- We currently only sell online directly but if you think our product would look perfect in your store please let us know. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
How can we contact you?
- email@example.com or use our Contact Us form. We would love to hear from you.
- Phone number? Well the reason we don't have a phone number listed on our website is because in addition to running Munchkin & Bear, we are the parents of small children (who save their worst behaviour for when the phone rings :-))
- We endeavour to answer all enquiries within 24 hours however during busy periods it may take a few days - I’m sorry.
Can we follow you on social media and say nice things about Munchkin & Bear?
- Yes of course! @munchkinandbearuk (ok this isn't a frequently asked question at all, but we do love it when our customers connect with us and share cute pics) You can also tag us using #munchkinandbearuk or #munchkinandbear
