When you have a baby, every month sees a different development milestone. From rolling over to being on their tummies, then rolling back and making a move with sitting up and crawling. Having somewhere safe for them to lay down to learn all these vital skills is really important and that’s why we love the Doubleplay Reversible Playmat Zoo from Skip Hop.
The playmat is a large rectangle and covers 31 square feet so plenty of space for little ones to explore. We have used it in the garden over the summer holidays and it has been brilliant for Freddie to crawl around on and play with his toys.
Reversible and colourful
The playmat features a reversible side so both sides of the mat can be used. Freddie loves to look at the brilliant colours on the Zoo Animal side. There are familiar faces from the popular Skip Hop range printed onto the Zoo Animal side; we love the monkey and the owl, as well as vibrant and vivid blocks of colour and on the reverse there is a modern spotty pattern which is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
I’ve been really impressed with the quality of the playmat. It’s thick and soft perfect for little ones who are finding their balance, learning new skills sitting up and rolling over. You won’t need to worry about little ones banging their heads if they fall back as it’s a really cushioned surface for them to roll back on to.
The playmat is waterproof and is easily cleaned, however it’s best not to leave the playmat outside to the elements. We love that the mat is PVC-free and made from phthalate-free foam so it’s perfect for little ones of all ages.
Easy to store
We’ve been using the playmat around the house over the last few months as Freddie has begun to explore his surroundings. It’s really easy to roll up and move around as well as easy for storing in a rolled up fashion. We’ve been using it lots in our playroom for play dates with friends as well as a safe environment for Freddie to play when I’m cooking the dinner.
The Skip Hop Doubleplay Reversible Playmat Zoo is suitable from birth and will last well into your little ones early years. The playmat is available to buy from Amazon and retails at £87.07.
