We like items that serve double-duty in the nursery. HABA's Dream Baby Meadow Playmat is both a stimulating play mat for babies, and a changing table pad, although we aren't sure how easy it would be to transition between the two quickly. But the development of sensory awareness is an important component of a baby's life, and this mat would definitely do that!
The lateral sides of this mat can be flipped down to turn it into a rug, or just one side can be brought down to use this on a changing table. The cover removes and is a machine-washable cotton/poly blend. We like the bright colours, and all of the add-ons, like the wooden dowel overhead filled with bright noisemakers. The Dream Meadow Playmat measures 54"x48", and is designed for the newborn-1 year age range, and is $169.00
