Bubba Mat For Safe Playtime

Back in July 2010 a friend posted on Facebook a picture of their baby playing on a beautiful mat out under a tree. I thought the mat was lovely and asked where she got it. My friend informed me it was called Bubba mat, and it could be ordered online. The more I looked into it the more I wanted it. In the end I purchased it and haven’t looked back.

I love, love, love this mat. It has been great while my son has learned to crawl, pull himself up, and eat. For the most part spills and tumbles happen on the mat. Obviously the more he moves around the less he stays on his mat. But to start with this was really useful as we knew it was a safe place for him. Also we encourage his play time on the mat which seems to work really well. To be honest it also provides a nice soft place for us to lay/sit on the floor with our son and play with him.

It is made out of non-toxic PVC this is a soft and most importantly cushioned, and provides a safe place for your baby to play as your baby learns to explore its world. Best of all it is really durable so will easily last well into toddler and even early childhood years. The only thing it’s not is cat proof, my cat tried once to use it as a scratching post and I was beyond unimpressed.

There are five different designs to choose from that are vibrant and colourful. The mats though are reversible with a different design on the other side. So you really get two mats for the price of one. They also are educational with number and abc displayed.

The mats are:

  1. Soft, durable, and versatile.
  2. A large one piece mat.
  3. Can be used indoors and outdoors.
  4. hygienic and non-permiable, it is also easy to clean.
  5. Can be used for meal times to protect the floor.
  6. Perfect for nappy free time.
  7. Comes with a carry bag.

Bubba mats cost AU$199 GST inclusive plus shipping. They can deliver anywhere in Australia and will deliver internationally. So check them out at Softmats.

    They look great, and very tempting. Just a bit pricey. But I guess if they will last for a long time and can be used for many situations, they may be worth it. Might go and check them out at our local Baby Bunting. Thanks for the tip.
