Top 5 reasons your little one needs a waterproof playmat in their life

 Hello there, fellow exhausted parents! Are you tired of constantly cleaning up spills and stains during your little one's playtime? We’ve been on the road for 6 months now and I can seriously say anything that makes life easier is a winner for me.

We decided to take our play mat with us and it has come in handy for eating, playing and relaxing. One of the most beneficial features we've found while travelling is its waterproof nature. Which has inspired me to share with you why you need a waterproof play mat.

While perfect for messy play there are so many benefits to the waterproof play mat - such as saying goodbye to stressful clean-ups and hello to worry-free play! Our Freddy & Co play mats are designed to withstand anything your little bundle of joy throws their way.

Let's dive in and explore my top five reasons why you absolutely need a waterproof play mat!

  1. Mess-Proof Fun: Imagine this... your child is having a blast finger painting or exploring sensory materials, but you're constantly on edge, fearing the inevitable spills and stains on your precious carpet, tiles, patio or wooden floors. A waterproof play mat comes to the rescue! With its waterproof surface, you can let your little one unleash their creativity without worrying about permanent damage to your floors. Plus, spills and messes are easily contained on the mat, making clean-up a breeze and saving you valuable time and energy.

  2. Durability: Kids can be rough on their play surfaces. That's why a waterproof play mat is a must-have investment. These mats are designed to withstand the demands of active play, ensuring long-lasting durability. Whether it's a teething baby, a wobbly toddler, or an energetic pre-schooler, a waterproof play mat can handle it all. Made from high-quality materials, these mats are built to withstand spills, stains, and even cushion rough play, ensuring they'll be a reliable companion throughout your child's early years.

  3. Easy to Clean: Bid farewell to hours spent scrubbing and treating stains on traditional play surfaces. A waterproof play mat can be wiped clean effortlessly. Simply grab a damp cloth or sponge, give it a quick wipe, and voila! It's good as new. No more worrying about deep stains or lingering odours. Our only tip is the quicker you clean up afterwards the easier it is! For more tips on how to clean your play mat - view our blog here.

  4. Versatility: Not only do waterproof play mats offer protection during messy play, but they also serve a variety of other purposes. These mats can be used for outdoor picnics, family gatherings, or as a comfortable surface for your baby to practice tummy time. All our designs have educational features like alphabets, learning opportunities or vibrant illustrations, providing an interactive developmental experience for your little one. With their versatility, waterproof play mats become an essential part of your child's playtime and beyond.

  5. Portability: As parents, we know the importance of being prepared for playtime wherever we go. Waterproof play mats are lightweight and easy to roll up, making them highly portable. Whether you're heading to the park, visiting family, or going on vacation, simply roll up the mat, secure it with its Velcro straps and you're good to go. These mats are a convenient solution to ensure your child has a clean and safe play area no matter where they are.

A waterproof play mat is an absolute game-changer for both parents and children. It offers mess-proof fun, durability, easy cleaning, versatility, and portability, making it an indispensable addition to your playtime toolbox.
