why play mats should be part of every home
Sensory stimulation optimises development in children
In order to optimise cognitive and motor development in children, you have to ensure that they are building a sufficient foundation in sensory stimulation. From touch and sound to colour and smell, sensory input early in childhood lays the foundation to higher brain processing including learning, memory, attention, emotion, and movement.
Insufficient stimulation can lead to impaired muscular movements, overreaction to stress, emotional disturbances, and learning deficits.
Barefoot Stimulation Benefits
Walking barefoot on our mats can have an immediate impact on posture, balance, and gait. All achieved by improving sensory stimulation through the feet.

We were originally attracted to these orthopaedic play mats because we loved how they looked and when we looked a little deeper the health and development benefits became apparent. The mats are designed as orthopaedic play mats to promote healthy foot development, prevent and correct foot disorders and stimulate and develop those all important fine motor skills.
Most importantly they are FUN!
The endless combinations, bright colours, unique patterns and functional designs have meant that our children are seeing the health benefits of these mats but also have great fun playing on them too.
We hope you and your children get as much enjoyment out of these as we are.
