Advantages of a foam play mat
SAFETY- foam mats are so hard and stiff that the child can move freely on them as if on the floor, but so soft that if the little one shakes and accidentally hits the head on the ground, it will not be painful or dangerous for him.
FUN COMFORT – foam play mats are so stiff that they do not curl or roll while playing. Some parents simply unfold a blanket folded in half on the floor. The disadvantages of such a solution are quickly revealed when the child begins to crawl or crawl. The blanket curls up and the child tangles in it, which makes it difficult for him to move around. If we put a blanket directly on the tiles or wooden floor, it will slide, increasing the risk of losing balance and falling.
HARD SUBSTRATE- according to physiotherapists, the child develops better when exercising on a hard surface. It is pleasant than a mattress on the parents’ bed or sofa, but more demanding, thanks to which the child makes faster progress. This is the best place to do exercises with your child, especially if you have increased or reduced muscle tone.
HYGIENE– baby floor foam mats are very easy to keep clean and do not accumulate dust or mites, which is especially important for children prone to allergies. From most mats, food stains can be easily removed with a damp cloth or baby wet wipe.
EDUCATIONAL FUNCTION – colorful foam mats, puzzle type, with removable elements can be a great help for a child learning to recognize colors, first shapes, animals, letters, and numbers.
THERMAL INSULATION – this is especially important on tile floors, which are cold even in summer, which can be unpleasant for a child, and in the autumn and winter also promote colds. Foam mats insulate very well, that’s why our little one will certainly not get cold while playing.
POSSIBILITY OF CHANGING THE SHAPE AND SIZE – by choosing a puzzle mat we will be able to modify its dimensions according to your needs. We can spread the whole mat, e.g. in a children’s room and use it as a rug, we can also spread a fragment of it to play in the living room or take it with you on vacation or a picnic.
