Playmats are the perfect play mates for kids when they are beginning to get active. Checkout our best selection of unique and educational playmats for babies and toddlers.
Why Playmats for Kids?
As babies start growing, they need toys that will help them discover the world around them. But because they are still not grown up to handle more complicated toys with smaller parts (it’s also not safe to provide them with such toys), you need to provide them with softer toys.
Foam based playmats are perfect for babies over 6 months, or whenever they are spending more time on their tummies and rolling around.
Play mats provide great cushioning for smaller kids and because of the various themes printed on them, these also capture the attention of the little ones thereby increasing their curiosity.
Some play mats come with grow-with-me features that allow them to be useful even after the baby starts walking.
Alphabet Play Mats
Alphabet Play Mats encourage children aged 2-3 years to explore letters and numbers and also improves their hand-eye coordination. These also make for a great gift for children.
Alphabet mats contain numbers and letters of the alphabet and is a simple way to enhance your child’s interest in letters and numbers. The colorful illustrations on the mat encourages little children to crawl on the mat and explore the alphabets and numbers, which will help enhance their curiosity to know more about letters and numbers.
Alphabet rugs can have a combination of alphabet, numbers, colors, and shapes, and some mats are double-sided wherein they have alphabets on one side and numbers or shapes on the other side. These are mostly made from foam or fabric.
These and other puzzle play mats also create a delightful place for your baby’s tummy time; they can lie down, crawl, roll or play on it.
These playmats are also very portable; you can take it outdoors, to the park, to the grandparents place; you can use these on hardwood or grass. The pieces can be packed to a compact size making it easy to transport and to store in the toy zone. These are made from non-toxic material and are water-resistant. These are also very easy to clean; you just need to wipe the various pieces with soft, damp cloth and let then dry.
