A good quality playmat is an essential for babies and kids. The majority of the ones on the market are super bright and colourful and whilst I know colours have their place in a baby’s development, a super bright playmat just doesn’t suit our coastal home. I was gifted us a round Luxe at Play mat at my baby shower from some of my beautiful friends and from the moment I saw it I was in love! We’ve used our mat everyday since Addie was born and because I love to share our favourite products, here are the reasons why we love our Luxe at Play mat so much.
We have the round Sage Scallops / Petal Luxe at Play mat. It’s 1.4m (Diameter) x 1.5cm thick and I love that the mat is reversible. We alternate between the two sides of the mat as I think both sides are just as gorgeous as each other.
I leave the mat in Addie’s room the majority of the time, but bring it out into the living room when we are playing out there. I like the subtle, pastel tones which blend well into our home decor and it doesn’t stand out like bright primary colours on a mat would.
Both sides are also the perfect backdrop for a mini photoshoot!
Safe, Soft & Supportive
Addie spends a lot of her time lying, playing and slobbering all over her play mat so it is super important to have one that is non toxic and free of any harmful chemicals and substances. Our Luxe at Play mat ticks all those boxes!
The mat is 1.5cm thick with a soft foam core and is lovely and soft but also supportive enough for Addie to do tummy time and learn to roll (and down the track crawl and then walk).
Water Resistant and Wipeable
The play mat is water resistant with a wipeable and easy to clean cover which is literally perfect for a baby. Addie drools all over the mat and we give her nappy free time on there too, so can wipe up any spills and accidents if need be.
The Luxe at Play mat comes rolled up and is super easy to roll back up and either store away or take out with you. It’s also lightweight and easy to move around the house. I put it in the kitchen last week and Addie was happy to lay there and play for a few hours whilst I cooked up a bunch of meals for the week.
The Luxe at Play mats feature beautiful hand illustrated patterns, all of which are designed in Australia.
My Luxe at Play mat was a gift from friends and I loved it so much that I recently purchased it for a friend who was having a baby! A few girls in my mums group noticed my mat in some of our Instagram photos and have since ordered their own at our recommendation (and are so happy with their purchase)!
The round mat we have can be purchased for $149 + shipping. Luxe at Play also have a $10 discount code for new purchases available on their website. Whilst not super cheap, the mats are definitely worth it as they are such great quality and would honestly last for many years. I’ll definitely be purchasing another one whenever we decide to have another baby!
We absolutely love our Luxe at Play mat and so does Addie. It is beautiful and such good quality and I know we will continue to use it and love it for many years to come.
