Grace had a question for us.: " Do you know where I can get a large-sized mat for my little boy to play on? At gymboree classes, they said they got it custom-made...can't seem to find any decent-sized mats anywhere on the web except those with alphabet pieces and such which I don't want. - "
Good question Grace! We searched and searched and found that there just aren't too many large sized playmats without giant alphabet letters, but we did find a couple of things that may work.
This playmat from Target is on sale now and can be used inside or outdoors and wipes clean easily. The design looks pretty tame!
A site we found called Backyard Adventures of Iowa also has an ok selection of playmats. One is even in a solid color.
Over at Hip and Little we found a bag that zips open into a playmat in- the best design is currently sold out- after out search for a nice playmat, we understand why!
Finally, Champion Toy Store had a few mats with airplane, sunflower, or ladybug designs (pictured above).
Anyone else out there- please help Grace find a playmat! Let us know if you have one you liked.
