This house is the first we’ve lived in that has a hardwood floor in the living room. While it’s great for visual appeal it’s not so great for an infant. Though we have an area rug, it wasn’t very thick, and so I’d fold a baby blanket or two under Everleigh before laying her down.
I started thinking of creative ways we could make the area more comfortable for her and thought of those foam interlocking tiles in department stores. The problem is that they happen to be rather ugly. Bold primary colors in large squares don’t jive a modern living space.
Fortunately, Skip Hop has a line of interlocking foam tiles called Playspot – perfect for creating a play area for babies in a modern decor. The sets come with 20 oversized 14×14 tiles giving you the ability to make your play spot as big or small as you’d like. You can even purchase additional tiles to make a super-large area.
We only used 12 tiles total for the play spot area we created in our living room and it’s a perfect area for Everleigh to play. She just turned 5 months this week and is on the move – she doesn’t sit all that well on her own yet (only long enough to snap an adorable pic like this!) but can scoot on her belly. This makes the play spot a good starter point now! For babies that are not as mobile, this would be a perfect area for playtime!
Available in 4 different color combinations and made from BPA-free, phthalate-free and PVC-free EVA foam, the Skip Hop Playspot interlocking foam tiles can be purchased directly from the Skip Hop site for $79US. You can also use the Store Locator on the site to find a store near you that sells Skip Hop products.
