One of the multitude of savings on at Tesco Direct at the moment is the Winnie the Pooh Crawling Mat which normally sells at £25.95, but has £13.45 slashed off to be just £12.50.
I’m quite intrigued by this Crawling Mat. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it. We bought a large quilted mat for my daughter when she started moving around, but it didn’t have any toys or activities on it. This seems to basically be a large play mat, but for when baby moves about more.
It’s 75 x 142 cm, and doesn’t require any batteries. It is a wipe only surface for cleaning, so you can’t pop it in the washing machine and is made of material.
While the reviewers seem to like it, there are a few issues with it – like the fact that it slips about on wooden surfaces, or tiles, and doesn’t seem to give a crawler much traction on a carpeted floor. One reviewer even suggested using tape to stick it down – so it seems it would do well on a rubber mat, which at least provides additional padding.
I’d love to see one in action. I think it’s a really cute idea, if it works well.
