Rated 5 out of 5 by kimberleyC A must for wood floors! We needed to find a mat to place on top of our wood floors underneath our Skip Hop Activity Mat. First we tried just a blanket folded over (too soft for baby to get traction during tummy time), then we bought a rug (too hard unless there was a thick pad underneath, which made the Activity Mat too high off of the ground), and then we found this. This mat was actually recommended to us by our doctor as the perfect consistency for tummy time and also soft enough for baby to lie on her back and play as to not develop a flat spot as many babies do. Aside from this actually being recommended by our pediatrician, I really like that the size of the squares are fairly small so that we can make the mat the perfect size (3 square by 3 squares) for just under the activity mat. I also love that once she becomes mobile, we can expand the mat to a very large size seeing as how it comes with so many squares! This mat is amazing :) It's also really cute too! Colors are more muted in person than they appear in the picture, which I actually prefer. May 30, 2012

A:giggle's ABC-123 Play Mat i includes 36 Frame Pieces and 24 Border Pieces. Plus, each alphabet and numeric piece embeds in a 12" tile and is removable, and the alphabet and numeric cut-outs (for example, the two small areas inside the letter "B") are also removable.
I have read a lot about the toxins found in the foam in these mats. Do you have any alternatives organic foam tiles?
A:If you're looking for a 2nd stage play mat for ages 3+, giggle's "pick" is our very own giggle ABC 123 Play Mat set! And, since not all foam play mats are created equal, we've taken special care to make sure that as many toxins as possible have been eliminated from our own play mat.
giggle's ABC-123 Playmat Set is made from EVA foam, and is BPA, Phthalate, and PVC-free (the product is packaged in a PVC storage bag), and it's been tested and confirmed that there is no traceable presence of formamide, the chemical most at issue in foam play mats.
Q:I'm looking for a mat for the hardwood floors in my living room where my baby can hang out and roll around and eventually crawl...I can't seem to figure out if this is "safe" for a baby younger than 3 years old or not? Please confirm.
Q:At another baby store, they have a similar mat but it comes in many pieces. For example, the letter "B" tile separates into the square tile outline, the letter B, and the two small areas inside the B. For a small toddler, that seems like a safety hazard and the box recommends ages 3+ for that mat. Does your mat separate into that many pieces or just the 12x12 individual tiles?
A:giggle's ABC-123 Play Mat is rated for ages 3 years and up, and includes the following pieces:
--36 Frame Pieces
--24 Border Pieces
--Alphabet and Numeric Inner Puzzle Pieces: Each alphabet and numeric piece embeds in a 12" tile and is removable. The alphabet and numeric cut-outs (using your example, the two small areas inside the letter "B") are also removable.
Q:I've read that play mats made of EVA foam have been banned in Belgium and France because of the presence of formamide. Has the Giggle playmat been tested for formamide and if so, were levels found to be safe?
Q:Do you know the recommended age is 3+ on this mat? Is that for safety reasons or just due benefit of using the puzzle?
Q:I noticed you didn't check the "H" off in Giggle criteria, but can you tell me if this mat is BPA, Phthalate, PVC free? What kind of foam is it made from? I am looking for the healthiest alternative for my child's play area.

The "Healthy" criteria box is not checked for the Playmat Set because this product has not been measured by a 3rd party for health benefits. Measurability is achieved through 3rd party certification, and, after evaluating the costs of this additional certification, we have decided at this time to not pursue certification in order to keep our high quality Playmat a budget-friendly option for more consumers.
