Soft Floor Kids Alphabet & Number Soft Play Mat : Review

Over the past few days, we have been testing out a Alphabet & Number Soft Play Mat from the lovely people at Soft Floor Kids.

About The Play Mat

This is a 40 piece mat, compromising of all the letters of the alphabet, numbers 0-9 and 4 shapes. All the digits and shapes are removable from the mat making it also a puzzle for young children.

The mats are made from high-quality, closed-cell (non asorbing), EVA (Ethylene-vinyl acetate) foam and are 100% non-toxic and formamide free. These mats are safe for hoovering and mopping.

The mats come in a transparent ziped bag so they can stored away safely for use another time (although I doubt we’ll ever store them away now!).

Testing

Having a laminate floor in the Children’s Playroom was becoming a bit of an issue for me as it was uncomfortable to sit and play on for long periods of time so the play mat has become a knee/bottom/life saver all at the same time.

We ordered the play mat on the Thursday evening, dispatched Friday and arrived early Tuesday morning. Lewis and I constructed the mat together as the schools were closed (due to the recent strike action) whilst Leah was napping.

Lewis enjoyed setting up the mat, is was actually nice to see how much he’s also learnt during his first 4 weeks in school. He was able to tell me all the numbers and a fair few letters, and also how to write them.

The mat was super easy to construct and match up the edging pieces. As you can see the edges of the play mat do not have the “jigsaw” ends as each square piece to the mat comes with a removable straight edge, giving the perfect finish to your mat. Lewis was quick to snap up this job as his, matching up the colours and adding the finishing touches.

They are really thick tiles, something which is a definite positive about this product. Super spongy to walk on and the kids enjoy jumping around on…. Lewis at one point said “This is just like my trampoline Mummy!!”. The mats provide superb protection from knocks and bumps, especially on a hard floor.

Both the children are super happy with their new mat, so are Mummy and ClearlyDaddy. This is a perfect addition and now makes our playroom feel like a playroom!
