You may remember the other week I met the lovely Renai from Theo & Mae, the creator of the ‘Anywhere Play Mat’. I’ve followed Renai on Instagram for awhile and absolutely loved the idea of her play mats; soft, lightweight and fashionable play mats with a waterproof backing, that roll up! You can definitely tell a Mama designed these!
The top layer is 100% cotton and comes in 6 gorgeous designs; Cactus, Whales, Stripes, Floral, Swan and Mermaid. I love that Renai has included both gender specific and neutral designs! It has a polyester filling which is SUPER light and soft, perfect for little hands and knees to crawl on, and the backing is a waterproof polyester. To make life SO much easier, there are press studs in the corners to fold before you roll and it’s not only kept in place by the leather straps, they have a handle as well! Bebe can fold, roll and strap the play mat all by himself. Renai kindly gave us a Stripes Play Mat to check out, and we’ve literally taken it EVERYWHERE with us!
We have taken it to the park multiple times, it’s a fantastic size – 115cm Long x 85cm wide – and fits both boys for snacks, Bambino & I while we’re watching Bebe play, and Bambino with loads of room to move about.
We’ve also used them at friend’s houses on cold floors, as a change mat, and at a café so Bambino could stretch his legs. It takes up next to no space in the boot and is SO handy to have!
I cannot recommend these play mats enough, and wish I had one with Bebe and earlier with Bambino (it would be a perfect tummy time mat at home!) and it is now the first thing on my list as a Baby Shower gift. If you’re a mum-to-be, new Mama, Mama to a bub or toddler, or know someone who is… check out Theo & Mae today!
