The Cosyplay Luxury Play Mat -- A Review & Giveaway

It's not often that I come across a product that I fall head over heels in love with, but this is one that I have found myself talking about nonstop since it's arrival, even to my non-parent friends!

A month or so ago I was on the hunt for a play mat for Evie. We had a regular one - you know the type - one that starts as a baby gym with arches and dangly toys and once your small person can sit up you remove the arches and are left with a small scrap of a mat with tickly bits and scrunchy bits and squeaky bits. We got to that point with E and realised that the mat we already had wasn't what we wanted at all. The downstairs of our house is all solid wood and stone floors and it just wasn't thick or big enough for my roly polying little madam, but I couldn't find anything suitable for love nor money so I made do and improvised with a king size duvet underneath for extra padding.

This did the trick, but looked an absolute shambles - and the extra padding may have protected madam from the hard floors but the whole thing still wasn't big enough now that she was on the move.

Then, as if by magic, an email popped up in my inbox from a company called Cosyplay - makers of luxury memory foam play mats for babies - asking me whether I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. As soon as I looked at their website I realised that this mat was exactly what I had been looking for.


Cosyplay baby play mats are made up of a patented four layer system (including one inch of memory foam) which makes them ideal for use on hard floors and outside. The top cover is a super cuddly, fleecy fabric (which is machine washable and fine in the tumble drier!) and the main body contains waterproof layers and as well as a waterproof base, which means you can even use it on wet grass!

Although Evie is coming up to eight months old now, this mat is suitable from birth and is perfect for early tummy time (which is SO important - read here to find out why) and for parent & baby bonding time. It's huge as far as play mats go - 1m x 1.5m - so there is plenty of room for Mummy or Daddy to sit on it too (and I can confirm it is VERY comfortable - I may* have fallen asleep on ours last week).

But enough of the specifications - take a look at this here video for more information on why this mat really is fabulous.



Evie and I (and Daisy and Himself) all adore ours and every single visitor to the house over the last fortnight has complimented it. It's safe, practical and comfortable - as well as being gorgeous to look at, and very easy to store (we roll ours up and put it behind the sofa after the girls have gone to bed). We were gutted not to have heard of the brand earlier as we could have got so much more use out of it but, that said, it couldn't be more perfect for the current milestone we have reached, whereby E likes to pull herself up to standing on the sofa/coffee table... and then let go. (Eeeeeeekkk!!!)


If you are looking for a play mat I would wholeheartedly recommend you check this company out. If, like us, you have hard floors at home then this is an essential! No other play mat out there compares to this one. Cosyplay Baby Play Mats are available to buy from the Cosyplay shop here for £85.00. You can also buy extra covers (which are very handy for when one is being washed or if you can't make up your mind which colour or pattern to go for!) for £17.50.

However I have one to give away to one lucky Modern Mummy reader! As per my usual giveaway terms and conditions, I'm using the Rafflecopter widget below. Everyone is entitled to a six entries each - you can follow me and Cosyplay on Twitter, like us both on Facebook and tweet about the competition too.

  35. Isn't it funny how many of us go for the washing factor - I'm going to say tumble drier, washing it one thing but being able to get it back in action quickly is brilliant.
