7 of the best padded foam playmats
News + Inspiration

We’ve rounded up the best padded foam playmats that not only look good, but make your life that little bit easier.

Our criteria was easy to wipe clean, spongy to absorb toddler falls, gentle on our knees for when we have to play the ‘sick patient’, and, considering we have to stare at them all day, they need to look good AND be durable.
