Fancy yourself as a bit of a designer, but don’t have the know-how or time to create amazing things for your kids? This brilliant Australian company will do it for you – personalised activity play mat anyone?
As a parent, while we may never feel like experts on our kids, we certainly know them better than anyone. So it follows that a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to certain toys is hit and miss.
Aussie mum Linda George has taken the concept of personalising baby goods and run with it, creating Stina’s Style. One of the most exciting design-your-own items is the ActivityPlayMats. Sick of seeing gaudy, uninspiring, mass-produced play mats, Linda came up with the clever concept of allowing her customers to personalise their play mats to suit their children.
The Stina’s Style ActivityPlayMats look understated and above all, comfortable. They are also reversible, so you can get more mileage and a couple of different looks from the one mat. The activity poles are detachable, and come with three baby links and 13 spots to hang toys and accessories.
Stina’s Style also creates adorable hanging toys, in designs to co-ordinate with the play mat designed by the customer. The design-your-own ActivityPlayMat is $214, and the accessories are $19.95 each. Design-your-own spots are fully booked until March, but bookings are open from April 2015 onwards.
