The mat is extra cushy and comes with a puffy, cloud-shaped tummy time pillow. With removable arches and toys, washing is easy – plus, you can continue to use the play mat as your baby grows and starts sitting. And the mat folds up in a snap so you can stash it away when you need more space in your living room.

Heads up

Some parents say the attachable toys aren"t very sturdy.

Parents say

"Our son really likes this, and I think it"s cuter than other brands."

The Lovevery play gym is a modern reimagining of a play mat designed by child development experts to stimulate your baby during different stages of development. The mat is made with organic cotton and sustainable wood, and the toys have nontoxic finishes. A nice feature is the Play Space Cover, which transforms the play mat into a cozy fort for your growing child. This mat is on the larger side, which makes it a good option if you"re expecting multiples or have an older sibling who wants to play, too.

Heads up

Compared to some other play mats, this isn"t as easy to set up and take down.

Parents say

"The Lovevery play gym is awesome! It can be easily washed, and you can change the toys around. The different sections are nice because they allow your baby to explore."

This is a compact, brightly colored play mat with lots of musical fun, including a piano with five light-up keys and two separate rattle maracas. At first, your baby can play with the overhead toys while kicking at the piano keys. Later your little one can press the keys during tummy time or detach the piano and take it with her. You can attach the toys to the mat to make tummy time more appealing, and you can remove the toy bar, too, when your baby needs more room to sit up. When your baby is done playing, this play mat folds down easily.

Heads up

Some parents wish there was more room on the mat for their baby to roll around.

Parents say

"Our baby loves her piano mat. She loves kicking the piano keys. It"s by far her favorite toy."

This mat is extra-large (about the side of a queen mattress) and comes in lots of cute patterns. It"s also super cushy and especially nice to protect your exploring baby if you"ve got hardwood floors or tile. (It also works well on carpet.) Parents and grandparents who want to spend time on the floor playing without getting sore appreciate this product. The Baby Care Play Mat is waterproof, hypoallergenic, easy to clean, and double sided. You can roll it up easily for storage or to move it from room to room.

Heads up

Some parents notice a strong smell when opening this that eventually goes away. Make sure to give this mat time to air out in a place with good airflow before using it. (Note: The mat is free of phthalates, BPA, lead, latex, formaldehyde, and EVA.)

Parents say

"We have a Baby Care Play Mat and love it! Best purchase ever. I like it for the kids and for me to sit on when I"m on the floor with them."
