13. Play Mat

As with a baby gym, play mats can be used from early on, providing stimulation and visual interest for your baby. Used in conjunction with baby gyms, they give you a safe and comfortable space in otherwise high-traffic spaces such as the living room or kitchen. They can also be folded easily and taken along with you. As your baby grows, you’ll want to give them tummy time and a play mat makes a great companion to this vital developmental exercise. With tummy time, baby builds arm, neck and back strength, all essential for eventually pushing up onto all fours and crawling. Many play mats have interesting features to encourage exploration, such as crinkly flaps, mirrors, squeakers and different textured fabrics. The Wimmer-Ferguson Crawl and Discover Mat is a great example. The Manhattan Toy Company Playtime Pond is more aesthetically pleasing to adult eyes, but also has a great deal of interest for the newly mobile child with chimes, rattles and crinkle papers and removable characters to play with.
