    Why Choose Our Mat?

    Below are the 5 essential factors which make up a good baby mat. We will give you a brief overview of each to help explain exactly why all our play mats are the best on the market.

    What Makes a Good Play Mat?

    - Non-toxic

    A non-toxic mat is at the top of our list of what makes a good play mat for a reason. If a baby mat has toxic properties to its makeup, we recommend not purchasing it.  

    We have created an article that dives into this topic in more depth : 'Baby Play Mats : Are You Buying The Safest Option?'

    - Good Shock Absorption

    In the early months of a baby's life, a lot of time is spent on a playmat. The mat should provide a safe environment by providing enough cushioning and support when the inevitable trip and fall occurs. 

    - Waterproof and Easy to Clean

    We all know how messy newborns up to toddlers can be. From drool to a Crayola piece of art, you are going to need a playmat that is waterproof and easy to wipe clean. Look for a mat that is completely waterproof and can simply be cleaned with a soapy damp cloth.

    - Portability

    A good play mat will be large enough for your baby to move around and have a lot of space to explore their environment. Being large means that they take up a lot of floor space. A good play mat will be easily packed away, either by rolling it up or folded to store away easily.

    - A Great Design

    You will be pleased to know that the days of brightly coloured play mats filled with cartoon animals are gone. Today there is a great selection of designs to suit every households' tastes from the more minimalistic Scandinavian style to up-to-date bold designs created by talented Australian artists.

    It is important to note that the old cartoon styled designs served to allow newborn babies to focus on bold and contrasting patterns. However, this ability can also be achieved without compromising style.

    Play mat benefits for your baby:

    • Cognitive, Visual and Motor Skills development.  
    • Stimulates a baby to crawl and use legs, hands and arms to explore.
    • Perfect for tummy time and yoga.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions.

    How to clean your play mat

    How do I clean my play mat?

    Warm soapy water with a damp cloth to wipe down every day use is all that is needed. Damage may occur if you use harsh cleaning agents like bleach, so it is best to avoid them.

    Play Mat Pet

    Can my pets play on my mat?

    Our play mats are very durable, but like everything they have their limits and pets nails and claws can get sharp! It is best to keep your pets off your mat as puncher marks may occur.

    Baby Play Mat Non-toxic

    What are your play mats made of and are they non-toxic?

    Our mats are made from a high density polyurethane and are made to the highest international standards. You can rest assured that our mats are safe for your little ones.

    Play Mat Roll

    How do I store my play mat?

    Most of the time your play mat will be left on the ground, however if you need to store it, it is best to roll up the mat as it is when it is delivered to you. Two velcro straps are included to keep your mat nicely secure when rolled up and stored away.

    Play Mat High Chair

    Can I place my play mat under a high chair or couch?

    Our mats are designed to be super absorbent and flexible. Due to this, placing the mat under hard and heavy objects will cause them to dent and is not recommended.

    Baby Play Mat Sun

    Can I use my play mat outside?

    YES! As our play mats are 100% waterproof they make a great safe and soft environment for you and your baby to enjoy some sunlight. Prolonged exposure to the sun may fade the colours of your mat however, so it is best keep your mat out of sunlight for most of the time.

    Padded Play Mat Vacuum

    Can I vacuum my play mat?

    Vacuuming your mat is not recommended as some vacuum heads have harsh bristles that my scratch and damage your play mat.

    Baby Play Mat Shoes

    Can I wear shoes on my play mat?

    We recommend taking off your shoes whilst using your play mat. Some shoes like high heels may cause permanent denting to your play mat.

    Play Mat Edges

    The edges of my new playmat is lifting up, is this normal?

    Yes, this is perfectly normal! When taking your new mat out of your box for the first time, unroll it in the reverse direction and place flat on the floor. This may take up to a couple of days to relax.

    Play Mat Age

    At what age is suitable to purchase a play mat?

    Purchasing a play mat when your baby is first born is a great idea, even when your baby is not mobile. It provides a safe and comfortable space for you and your baby to get to know one another.

    Play Mat Crawling

    When do babies crawl and roll?

    All babies start crawling at different ages so you should never worry or push your baby to crawl as they may not be ready. Below are 7 simple ways to encourage your baby to crawl. Remember, let them be the teacher!

    Crawling has many benefits in helping baby development, including strengthening muscles, helps with flexibility, brain and vision development, and improves posture and balance, to name a few.

    Such a beautiful mat design compared to others in the market! It goes so well with our decor 😀 so glad that we made the investment as it used for nappy free tummy time (as it's waterproof) is easy to clean, is a beautiful addition to bubs play pen plus I use it as my yoga mat sometimes.

    Really great design and quality. Couldn’t be happier. Customer service was also excellent! The playmat was shipped promptly and when the couriers accidentally delivered to the incorrect address, Skye was very kind and helpful over email trying to sort it out. Have had many compliments on this beauty.

    I have bought a Moses basket with stand and a playmate from Young Folk Collective and cannot rate the quality and aesthetic of each product high enough! 

    Our Moses basket is beautiful and sturdy and stayed with our son from his first night home until he was ready to move into his cot at 5 months. It is beautiful quality and looks exactly as described online. 

    The playmat is one of my favourite products to date. It’s very thick and soft so perfect for kneeling on, and cushioning those many falls as we are learning to sit up. It’s a beautiful pattern that is fun but also funky and fits with our home decor without being loud and gawky. The patterns are very stimulating and my son loves looking at the butterfly’s and mushrooms and flowers. Super easy to clean and move around also! 


    ⭐️   ⭐️   ⭐️   ⭐️   ⭐️

    Such a beautiful play mat and the quality is amazing and I love that it comes with two different patterns, makes it super versatile. Suits our retro themed nursery and I can’t wait for our little man to become earth side, so he can spend hours playing on this gorgeous mat. Thank you 🙏🏻 🙌😊❤️😍

     Ordered two play matt’s and was so pleased with the service, I had even changed my mind on the design I wanted and they were so friendly and were able to amend my order. The mats are so soft and squishy very comfy to sit on with your little one! The patterns are so nice and compliment our house and our little ones eyes are drawn to them! Couldn’t ask for a better play mat and the size is perfect! The best thing is it doesn’t get squished and stay squished it bounces back to original padding.

     Gorgeous products - the orca Moses basket is absolutely gorgeous and I can't wait till my little one arrives! I also bought an extra large playmat which is so super soft and the size fits our play room perfectly, both my older kids love sitting on the mat and I love how easy it is to clean vs the rug we used to have in there.
