Foam vs. Fabric Play Mats

Once you're ready to let your baby begin exploring their surroundings, it's time to purchase a play mat for your baby. Play mats are an essential part of any nursery, playroom, or living room.

They give your little one a safe and comfortable place to start learning about their surroundings, stimulating cognitive and physical development. But, with so many kinds of baby play mats available, how do you know what type is right for you?

Here at Ludere, we offer two kinds of play mats; French Flax Linen play mats and TPU foam mats. We recommend buying one of each, as they have slightly different uses and applications.

Designing the ultimate baby play mat is not just about pleasing the eye. Safety is the priority, which is why we spent lots of time researching non-toxic, hypoallergenic materials to ensure the time your little one spends on our mats is safe, enjoyable, and educational.

Fabric Baby Play Mats

Our 100% French Linen Flax Play Mats are machine washable, making them easy to clean. The layers of soft natural linen provide a comfortable, portable surface for your bay – just fold it up to bring it to the beach, park, a friend's house for a play date, or to a family get-together. From the bed to the coast, enjoy our play mats anywhere.

Beautifully designed, our fabric play mats can also be used as a blanket if the weather turns cool while you are out. Our play mats are made from high-quality French Flax linen and are stonewashed to make them luxuriously soft from the first time you place your little one on them.

Foam Baby Plat Mats

Our TPU foam play mats are non-toxic and designed with the whole family in mind. We wanted to create a stunning nursery item that was versatile enough to be used by other family members when not being used by the baby.

The perfect complement to any interior aesthetic, our functional and beautiful play mats are the ultimate baby accessory. The soft cushioned surface of our TPU foam baby play mats makes them ideal for tummy-time, nappy-off time, and when your baby is learning to sit and roll.

Style, form, and function

Sitting or lying on a cold, hard floor is no fun, and tummy time is imperative to improve your baby's neck, shoulder, arm, and back strength. Choose a baby play mat that enhances the overall aesthetic of your home while also providing a safe, comfortable, and functional space for your little one.

Ludere is Latin for 'to play,' and our goal is to provide safe, functional, stylish, and high-quality products for your whole family to enjoy for years to come. Whether you choose one of our French Flax Linen or TPU foam play mats, know that when you select Ludere for your baby accessories, you are choosing a little bit of luxury for your baby.
