The Galt large playmat came packaged in a clear plastic bag with a little handle and Velcro to keep it closed. A great idea when I have a million toys around the house so I can fold the playmat up and store it away back in the bag.
The playmat is 100cm by 100cm and when folded away in the bag it is 42cm by 26cm so easily storable.
It’s nice that this playmat is so big. It means I can let my little one shuffle around while my toddler sits and has his lunch on it (he thinks he’s having a special picnic when I let him have his lunch on it).
The playmat is full of beautifully bright primary colours, perfect for little ones. It has 6 big colourful farm animals on; a pig, cow, horse, duck, hen and sheep and each one has a different sensory element. The pig has a silky nose, the cow has a fluffy back, the horse has a soft tail, the duck has a squeaky beak, the hen has a scrunchy wing and the sheep has a furry head.
These are great for when I put my little girl on her tummy so she can grab them and hear the different noises etc.
The first time I laid my 4-month-old on the playmat she was sick so it gave me the opportunity to wash it and see how it washed. I washed it as per the instructions (30°C, light spin, line dry) and it washed and dried absolutely fine. In fact, it dried super quick as it is so light.
I think this playmat is great and my little girl seems to enjoy being on it and looking at all the wonderful colours and feeling the different textures.
I’d definitely give this playmat a 5 out of 5 stars.
