Toy Review: Chad Valley Large Baby Playmat

I was on the lookout for a large playmat for Little Miss. We have some lovely little ones which are great for taking out with us and were perfect when she didn’t move but now she is rolling and crawling we needed something larger. So when Argos contacted me and asked me if I want to review something from the Chad Valley Baby range I knew straight away their Large Baby Playmat (£29.99) was the one for me.

The playmat is a really good size, big enough for two children to play on. It’s really bright and has a mirror, plastic teething rings, a butterfly and different sounds. It’s also padded.

Little Miss automatically went for the teething rings! She likes rolling around the playmat and playing with the different elements.

The playmat is just the right size for our living room and folds up small and goes into the toy box for an easy tidy up.

If you are looking for a large baby playmat that this is a great choice. At £29.99 it’s not going to completely break the bank and you will get a lot of use out of it.

The Chad Valley Large Baby Playmat is currently half price £14.99 which is a bargain! Would make a great new baby gift or put aside for Christmas.

Argos have a great selection of Chad Valley Baby products.


Review: Catching Stars Robot Playmat

Catching Stars is a fab online shop that designs makes and sells Teepees, cushions and playmats for children.  Fed up with the boring designs out there for children Roz started to design her own and with her business partner Sarah set up Catching Stars.

Little Miss was sent one of their Robot Playmats £43 to test out. The first thing I noticed when it arrived is it’s nicely padded and is nice and bright.

We tried it out straightaway and Little Miss seemed very happy on there.

It’s really well made and has lots of interesting patterns on it which Little Miss enjoys when she has tummy time.

The playmat has a water resistant base so you can use it outside and we have!

It can be folded up and taken out with you, perfect for picnics or trips to the park. We will be taking it on holiday with us next week.

The playmat also comes in a butterfly design which is really sweet. Matching cushions are available, though I have my eye on a tepee!

The playmats make a great new baby gift.
