When buying a crawling blanket or play mat for your baby, you should think about where you want to use it. The right size and suitable material are decisive factors in crawling blankets. Your child must be able to romp around and crawl on the blanket. Therefore, please pay attention to a sufficient size before buying a play mat. Neither should it be too small nor too big for your little one. Bear in mind that you might want to take your play mat with you to grandma and grandpa.
A play mat that features a size of 100 x 135 cm is a good compromise in terms of size and mobility. The play mat should also be soft and have a thick pad so that your baby is provided with ample padding to roll over and move around. When your child is still very young, we recommend you to opt for a play mat that features a washable pad so that you can wipe away mishaps in a quick and hygienic way. An appealing design with bright colours also provides visual stimuli and fosters the senses of your child.
Also, keep in mind that your baby will begin to put his baby toys and other objects into her mouth. Even blankets can be taken and then put into the mouth as soon as your little one has learnt how to grasp and hold objects. Therefore, you should be sure that the materials and fabrics do not contain any harmful substances.
A play bar or activity centre refers to a play mat or crawling blanket that comes with an additional bar on which figures or toys are attached – that way, they keep your little one entertained and provide visual stimuli. That way, the visual and haptic abilities of your child are fostered. Many activity centres also feature musical elements that promote your baby's coordination and response capacity.
An activity centre stands out as a good investment since it can be used for a very long time and accompanies your child up to the crawling age. After that, the mat can be used as a play blanket. When buying a play bar, you should also pay attention to the size of the mat and make sure that you get a model that can be wiped clean easily, is free from harmful substances and has got a thick surface.
