Playmats Direct will soon be you and your baby’s favourite place to relax and play. We’ve answered all your frequently asked questions below. Read on to find out why you should add our playmats to your area…

What is a Playmat?

A playmat is essentially a comfortable flooring that is specifically designed to encourage exploration and development. The playmat can also include detachable toys or a play gym. Toys, mirrors, teethers, and rattles will often be attached to the play gym. Depending on your needs, you can just use the mat or you can assemble the gym for extra activities. A playmat can be placed anywhere in your house! We love to keep our playmats in the playroom, but also frequently move them into the living or dining room! Playmats are made with premium EVA foam for a soft, sleek finish. The EVA foam is anti-bacterial, child safe, and easily cleanable!

What Are the Advantages of Using Playmats?

There are so many advantages to using a playmat for your baby! Playmats help with both mental and physical development. They are a fantastic way to bond with your little one, while also keeping them entertained and challenged!

So, what are the advantages of using a playmat? Firstly, baby playmats give them the confidence to explore new things. Babies are prompted to touch new objects, play with new sounds, and move in different ways. All of these things make your baby more curious and resilient. Playmats are designed by experts to encourage freedom of movement and experimentation. This freedom helps them make their own choices and gives them the courage to explore more of the world.

Secondly, a playmat is a great place to do tummy time! Tummy time is one of the most important ways babies develop their fine motor skills. Fine motor skills are things like walking, sitting, standing, jumping, lifting, and kicking. Tummy time helps your baby’s neck and shoulder muscles grow stronger. Strong muscles are essential to encourage your baby to crawl and walk! Our playmats are a safe, comfortable place for your baby to do their 1 hour of tummy time per day!

Can you believe it, a playmat is also a fun way to help with your child’s cognitive development! This is because playmats are a fantastic place to create a fun learning environment. We love to put a play gym or other interesting activities on our playmats. Playmats help your child learn visual perception, language skills, two way communication, exploration, and independence through the mat. All of these things are essential in developing cognitive functions like memory, language, thinking, and reasoning. Playmats intrigue a baby’s mind and help them grow!

Finally, a playmat will keep your baby entertained! A playmat, at the end of the day, is designed to entertain your baby. Playmats are a soft, safe space for your baby to play. The comfortable padding in our playmats helps to keep your baby’s hands and feet protected from harsh floors. Babies are encouraged to move around, play with their toys, and have fun on our mats! A special design like our Nordic trees, jungle, or space pattern will add extra stimulation to your baby’s play time routine. Playmats are designated spaces for your baby to have fun, experiment, and enjoy themselves!

These are only a few of the amazing advantages of using playmats! There are so many other benefits like fostering independent play, self discovery, sensory stimulation, and critical thinking!
