ANIMAL PRINT PLAYMAT- reversible newborn to 4 months and 5+ months


Our organic cotton playmat provides perfect stimulation for tummy time and playtime. Reversible dalmatian (newborn-4 month print) and leopard print (5+ months) in soft organic cotton with a comfy padded fill.

Designed alongside our consultant orthoptist specifically to support babies' visual and cognitive development throughout their first year.

The pattern also encourages your baby to use their back, neck and shoulder muscles (helping them prepare for rolling and crawling) as you’ll notice them trying to push up to make more sense of the print before them.

Comes in our gorgeous box packaging with a band to hold the mat together when rolled up – making it perfect for home and away.

Size: Circular - 1m diameter

Made from: Outer – Organic cotton. Inner: Polyester padding

The absolute best!

We have a few things from Etta loves - the 0-4 muslins, the 5+ muslin and we were kindly gifted the play mat from grandparents. All of the products are absolutely beautiful and excellent quality.

To give a very quick background - unfortunately when my son was born he was really quite poorly and he had a stint in NICU and then 7 hospital admissions before he was 3 months old. One of the things that we noticed early on is that he wasn’t focusing or tracking people/objects, and actually it seemed that his vision was getting worse rather than better as time went on. When we asked the doctors what we could do to support him with his development they encouraged us to give him things to stimulate him, but no specific guidance. So we started using the Etta loves muslins and play mat. We could tell very quickly that he was focusing on the patterns in a way that he wasn’t responding to other toys/books etc. Every day we spent time using the muslins and play mat using them as the hacks suggest and really felt like they were making a difference. 

A couple of weeks ago my son had his first appointment in the eye clinic where he was seen by the Orthoptist and Ophthalmologist and they were absolutely delighted with how he is doing. He is doing everything a 5 month old baby should - a huge change from the 3 month old who couldn’t focus or track. I truly believe that the beautiful products have really helped us and I will be recommending them to everyone I know. I know lots of people love them for letting them drink their cup of tea in peace (and they’ve certainly done that for us too) but for us it has helped us feel confident that we’re using the best things that we can to support his development. 

Fab product def recommend!!

We have two packs of Etta loves Muslins and more recently the playmat. I cannot recommend enough! Our little boy loves playing on it and looking at the design on both products. He’s so alert and so interested it’s amazing to watch him grow and develop. Thank you so much!

Just love it!

So great for in the pram and for tummy time at home. Washes well too. I recommend Etta Loves to everyone. We are obsessed! The playmat & muslins are awesome too

Amazing product

I come back time & time again. Etta loves product really are magic! They make brilliant gifts; finally this purchase was for me!

A must have! Beautiful!

I was on the fence about the play mat as I seemed to already have nearly everything from Etta Loves in my basket, including the animal print sensory strip and animal print muslin. Was this a bit of overkill? Absolutely not! My little one was fixated from the day we came home and had the comfort of the quilted mat at the same time which the muslin wouldn’t provide. He was lifting and holding his head during tummy time at just 3 days old. The quality is absolutely amazing and worth every penny. I either prop a small portion of the side up or add the sensory strip. I also love having a little rest on it! Excellent customer service, wonderful small business xox
