I was recently contacted by SarahK Designs UK to see if I would like to review one of their play mats. As soon as I saw pictures of what they were asking me to review I obviously said yes. They looked stunning and when it arrived I was not disappointed.
I was sent the Yellow duck quilted play mat and it is beautiful. There are other designs you can chose from which you can see here. My two boys are no longer at an age that they will stay on a play mat but we do use them when playing cars and games on the floor. We also use blankets a lot of the time and this play mat is big enough to have as a blanket for my two year old. And he claimed it as just that.
It is incredibly soft and I think that is what appealed to him. It arrived at a time that we were all a little bit poorly and there was a lot of lazing around on the sofa under blankets. There was some fighting over the blankets as children tend to like to tug at them and wrap themselves in them, but once the play mat arrived the arguing stopped as now Noah had his own blanket. In his own words he said to me 'I love it mummy, thank you for letting me have it.'
The size of the play mat is 80cm x 80cm and is 100% cotton with cotton wadding giving it some thickness. It is reversible so on one side you have the mini yellow ducks and the other green chevron stripes. The whole play mat has an outer frame of yellow and white stripes. It is hand wash or machine washable which is perfect when you have children, because inevitably they will get everything messy.
The play mat would be perfect for when you have a little baby for playing on and also as a pram blanket. The material is so soft and perfect for a baby. The play mats retail at £38.00 plus p&p.
The blanket was even big enough to fit all of the boys in the house under.
