Waldorf-Inspired Toys for Kids: Construction or Tot Town Play Mats

Gourmet Play offers two different play mats for your children: one that resembles more of a construction site and one that resembles a town within the pattern of the fabric, with parks, playgrounds, roads and more!

The construction site playmat is a great option for boys, of course, and is a more "natural" playmat with hand-crafted roads, bushes and water made out of a variety of different fabrics and textures (the main road is made out of herringbone fabric with some shimmer, er "shiny rocks" within it!). It measures a whopping 31"x38" and fits nicely on most train tables (a great alternative for the table when not being used by the trains!). It is constructed in felt and backed with a khaki-colored cotton fabric. The mat also includes a set of straps sewn into the side to easily roll up and stow away in a closet or under a bed when not in use.

The tot town playmat is a smaller mat (18"x20") and is perfect for on-the-go outings - use it on restaurant tabletops, waiting at the airport or in doctor's offices. It too can be rolled up for easy storage in your diaper bag or (large) purse. Ribbons are sewn into its seams for a more "fancy" closure. The mat is backed with hearty denim for maximum life and a "stiffness" for the roads.

Either play mat would make a fantastic birthday gift, and you can feel good about supporting a small business that hand-crafts all their items right here in the USA. Visit Gourmet Play for more birthday party favor & gift options, along with other natura, waldorf-inspired toys!
