    Default Soft play Mats

    Does anyone have one, and are they worth it? and where did you get it from and how much did you pay?

    We currently have those alphabet mats from Kmart but they're a massive pain in the bum to clean, the vacuum suction lifts them up and our rabbit has developed a fondness for the 'A'. I'm going to Costco today with my mother in law and wondering if I should invest in one of their soft play mats? Like the picture below. They're $120-$150 which is a lot of money but if it is worth it I will pay it! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1412114709.710290.jpg

    We have the duoling soft play mat and it's awesome! Is been going strong for almost three years now and looks brand new. I got one with a town and roads on one side so mr 3 drives his cars on it all the time and it was awesome for no nappy time when he was little. If it gets a bit yucky, I either mop or take it outside and pressure wash it. We've definitely got out money's worth from ours

    I've got one like that, it's great, very comfortable for DD to play on, she can eat snacks on it or have nappy free time and if it gets messed I just hose it down outside with some antibacterial soap and it dries off quickly. I didn't buy it though, it was a gift, if I had to buy it I don't know if I'd want to spend that much on a play mat, but I haven't seen any others around which are as easy to clean.

    I got one for $20 from Bargain City (cheapy shop). Its not as thick as the really expensive ones but its still pretty soft for ds to lie on

    We bought one of these mats for our apartment (although we got the small size for $100). It is so good - well worth the money! It is comfortable for both DD and for us when we are on the floor playing with her. I am very happy with our mat.

    I have a bubba mat got it really cheap at the baby expo, I have used it once. Would get more use if we had wood floors or tiles but we have carpet and using the abc mat at the moment. I would have a look at gumtree or eBay and get one second hand or cheaper.

    My MIL offered to buy one for us so I got it from Costco today. It is already making my life easier, I am glad we got one!

    We have a dwingular mat - was $249 or something similar but I love it! Nice and thick and I can wipe it clean. DD eats her snack on it and whenever she falls she has a good cushioned landing lol
