Animal Nap Mats From Purple Pumpkin Gifts

When your little one is in preschool, he or she may find everything they could want: activities, art, imaginative play, new friends, and more. However, one thing that can be tricky for toddlers at preschool is naptime, which is often their first place to nap outside of their familiar crib at home. Luckily, you can help your little one with the transition by choosing a high-quality, cute and cuddly animal nap mat.

Preschools and daycares often provide foam mats, but these can be uncomfortable and are shared among the other children. We all want our kids to be comfortable and safe, which is why many parents prefer to supply their tot with their own trusted nap mat. And because your child will likely be using it for 5 days a week for the next couple of years, you’ll want something that will hold up through countless naps and washes. But these fun and cuddly mats aren’t just for daycare – they’re ideal for tummy time for the younger ones, and make a cute rug for the nursery!

At our boutique full of both cute and practical baby gifts in Philadelphia, we offer a wide variety of fun and comfortable animal nap mats. They’re a stuffed animal and soft rug or blanket combined in one! From elephants to butterflies to puppies, we’re sure to have a comfortable, safe and fun animal nap mat your tot will love.
