A must have for the nursery, play mats can usually be used from the day your baby is born all the way until they are crawling. This innovative, colourful design from ‘Baby To Love’ extends the play mat’s usability in that it is multipurpose. Courtesy of its clever fastening and folding system several different positions can be used. At 55 inches it is a decent size. Easy to adjust with sturdy fixings the thick base padding is perfect if you have solid floors, so that your baby will be comfortable on a mattress for as long as he is playing. The non-slip, breathable material is easily wiped clean.

To create a safe learning environment, fold up the edges to keep crawlers enclosed, support early sitters and fill full of balls for extra fun. We love this unique feature which allows several different positions for rest, relaxation and play.
