Why are our Play Mats a parent’s MUST HAVE item, used daily in over 100,000 homes?

  • Babies are fragile. Our ultra THICK & SOFT material PROTECTS delicate little ones, from birth.
  • Messes are inevitable! Our mats are WATERPROOF & instantly WIPE CLEAN.
  • Immune systems are just developing. Our HYGIENIC easy to clean and ALLERGY-FRIENDLY mats keep them safe.
  • Babies need floor play to develop key muscles for core strength and reaching MILESTONES.
  • Learning new skills is tricky! Our highest quality memory foam ABSORBS IMPACTS of tumbles and bumps and helps prevent tears.
  • Our children deserve the best start in life. All our products are independently certified as child SAFE & NON-TOXIC.
  • Children play where you are. Our mats are PORTABLE and SUIT ANY SPACE. They are perfect in living rooms as the main area rug, covering hard floors, placed on top of carpets or rugs, in nurseries, playrooms, outside (brought inside after use) and even in the bathroom on top of cold hard tiles during bath time.
  • A soothing and stylish house is still possible post-kids! Our playmats are collaborations with INTERIOR DESIGNERS and with well over 40+ designs we have the most gorgeous and WIDEST RANGE, world-wide!


  • Size: Large, family sized:  2m long x 1.4m wide 
  • Thickness & Quality: 15mm of high quality memory foam. Low enough mat height to not be a trip-risk for your family, yet ultra shock absorbent to protect delicate little ones. M&B play mats quality is SO high that a raw egg can be dropped from over 2m without cracking. Give it a go yourself! (Don’t be fooled by thicker, but lesser quality memory foam play mats on the market!)
  • Material: Thermoplastic Polyurethane or TPU is referred to as the bridge between rubbers and plastics. The material appears rubber-like, which means it can be extremely flexible, durable and smooth to the touch. TPU is a non-toxic and 100% food-safe material. TPU does not contain any chemicals that interfere with endocrine and hormone systems, nor does it contribute to PH change in soil or water. Munchkin & Bear Play Mats are certified non-toxic, compostable and are PVC FREE!
  • Reversible: Change up your decor by just flipping the mat over (who doesn’t love a two in one?!). *Colour and size may vary ever so slightly, within a small acceptable 'production tolerance'. If you are after multiple matching play mats, we recommend ordering them at the same time, from the same batch.

Scandi Stars, balance and harmony

Our Dark Grey Scandi Stars design is a perfect balance of pattern and simplicity. This gorgeous play mat (with our Soft Grey reverse) will blend seamlessly into any interior whilst being the padded play space we all need. The Scandi-Stars design was actually the first style we launched and it has quickly become a best-seller!

Product Safety

Safety is incredibly important to us, as parents of small children ourselves. Our mats are independently tested (by both SGS & Austest/Intertek) to ensure they meet the most stringent safety standards. They are:

  • Non-toxic

  • Do not contain harmful heavy metals (such as lead or mercury) or toxic substances (such as formamide & formaldehyde, phthalates, BPA or endocrine disruptors).

  • Exceed Australian and International safety standards (EN71-3)

  • For more information, our full testing report can be found on our website.

Before First Use

  • Remove packaging and discard away from children.

  • Re-roll your play mat in the reverse direction, then lay it flat to allow the play mat to relax.

  • Wipe clean with soft cloth or damp towel.

Cleaning & Care Instructions

Cleaning our Luxe Padded Play Mats is simple:

  • We only recommend to wipe clean with warm water and mild detergent/liquid soap with a damp microfibre cloth (just as you would clean your baby's high chair for example). Dry thoroughly after cleaning and before flipping over.

The following is not recommended:


  • Do not use products with bleach, alcohol, natural citrus oils, essential oils or abrasive agents (e.g. Gumption) as they may damage or discolour the TPU mat coating. Some natural cleaning spray may also damage your play mat.

  • Vigorous rubbing may damage and remove the top layer colour.

  • Some baby wipe brands may cause damage or discolouration to the mat's surface.

  • Avoid sharp, rough & hot materials from coming in contact with play mat (e.g. sharp heels or toys, stiff vacuum brush, boiling water).

  • Pens, textas, crayons and permanent markers can stain the mat (and all your furniture!) permanently. Those budding Picassos can get a little too creative sometimes! 

  • Not designed for prolonged sunlight/outdoor use. Direct sunlight and high temperatures may cause deterioration of the play mat.

  • Pet claws and teeth may cause damage and are not covered under warranty.

  • Heavy furniture on the play mat may cause permanent depressions.

  • Do not steam clean.

An honest review- survival of a poonami

I'd been holding off on a review but after a traumatic poonami experience yesterday this mat really has won me over 100%. I already loved the colour and thickness of it (so soft and protective for bub). Yesterday I had a traumatic poo situation that I'm sure a lot of mums can relate to- it got EVERYWHERE, all over the mat, all over the baby gate, all over the toys. The mat was cleaned up in about 5 minutes- I used spray and wipe to get most of it off, then failing that I took it outside and gave it a good fashion hose down. 3 hours outside it was dried and now looks as good as new. So incredibly impressed with how easily I could clean it. I had tossed up with going with a fabric brand of another company, and now I now if I had done that I would have had to throw it away after yesterday!

Highly recommend!

I absolutely love our playmat! Having spent a lot of time playing on it (and more than a few nights sleeping), it was the first thing I bought for our nursery round 2. They look beautiful, are incredibly easy to clean and very comfy, definitely recommend!

Love our mat so much

We absolutely love our mat - it's perfect for babies from when they're newborns to learning to crawl and walk (our two kids have done their first rolls and crawls on Munchkin and Bear mats!) but I also love it to sit on myself - whether I'm playing with the kids or watching TV. Everyone who comes into our place comments on how lovely and squishy it is. And I love this pattern. Definitely recommend.

One of our best purchases

I did quite a bit of research to find a play mat that ticked all the boxes - non toxic, wipeable, good size, right colour etc. and then was very disappointed to find that the pick of the bunch, the Munchkin and Bear grey, scandi large mat was sold out! I did go back to the drawing board but frankly, there was nothing else that I wanted so I went on the waiting list and was very excited to finally receive it - the mat has certainly lived up to expectations and my little one loves it. We also love that it suits and fits his room perfectly, we love that we can wipe it,, we love that it is perfectly padded and has helped him get to his next milestone of crawling and we love that it is a simple but classy colour and design - I think we'd love to have one in every room!!

Love this product!

Great size for our space and is such a lovely design and colour. Bub loves it as he has more freedom to roll around and not worry about hurting his head so frequently! I also love it for yoga! I just move bub’s toys during his nap and no need to roll anything else out. Bub and I often spend time just lying around together on the mat - feels lovely underfoot too. Quick delivery and good communication. Would definitely recommend this product. Thanks!
