From tummy time to first steps and beyond, the SoftZone Patchwork Activity Mat offers a safe space for your little one to play and grow. Designed for everyday use in daycares, preschools, and early childhood learning environments and perfect for home, this play mat provides a comfortable space for babies and evolves into an interactive play zone for toddlers. Daily tummy time helps babies build strong neck, shoulders, back, and leg muscles so they can roll over, sit up, crawl, and walk. Climbing and crawling are important milestones that support sensory-motor development, fine motor, and cognitive skills. This foam mat is designed with a playful patchwork pattern that features bright and vibrant colors to stimulate movement, curiosity, visual perception, and acuity. The dense foam core is covered in soft vegan leather with a non-slip base for added stability while in use. This classroom rug provides enough space for multiple children to have fun and explore and can be used on any indoor floor surface; adult supervision is required. Double the fun and encourage creativity by pairing this mat with an ECR4Kids Bi-Directional Mirror, 360° Climbers, or Toddler Soft Baby Blocks to create a baby activity center; sold separately.
