The Playground is the all-purpose, indoor-outdoor mat that keeps you moving, doing, and playing without batting an eye. Made of high-quality bonded leather, this mat brings together all of your wants and needs: durability, washability, tote-ability, and style (these mats are pretty). Park playing, mess making, and gathering has been perfected.
FEATURES AND SPECS
Size & Shape
Playgrounds come in four sizes: Micro, Mini, Midi, and Maxi.
Micro: Perfect for all things tiny baby, like diaper changing.
Mini: Optimal for the bigger baby and also doubles as a splash mat.
Midi: Strikes the balance of size - ideal for a single family or small crowd.
Maxi: Biggest in the league and made to gather in all your faves.
With Maxi & Midi mats, you'll have your pick between square or circle.
Cleaning and maintaing the mat is lightyears cheaper and faster than a blanket. Just use a wet wipe of some sorts! Say "no" to extra laundry.
The mats are 1.20 millimeters thick, so they're thin. They fold so easily. The Maxi is 1/3 the size of a folded-up blanket and is substantially lighter in weight.
Style & Durability
Sure, you can use a tarp or some other waterproof thing for creative play or the great outdoors. Or you can use a pretty, big hunk of leather. Flocked leather lines the underside of each mat, which makes them oh so durable.

WORD VIA PLAYGROUND ENTHUSIASTS
Who doesn't love a good review?
"I have been beyond thrilled with my mat from Let's Playground. My kids love to pull it out and play on it - outside and inside. Wherever it is used, I know the mess (and there is ALWAYS a happy mess) will be easier to clean up. Just an easy wipe! The bright colors make it fun...my girls request to have it out daily." - Melanie of Caravan Shoppe
"My favorite thing about the Playground is the size! It's lovely to have something that I can just leave in my car. Don't we all need one less thing to grab as we're walking out the door?! " - Eve
"Unbelievably versatile. I've used it in the backyard, on the patio, in the family room, at the beach, at soccer games, and in the back of the car on the way home from the nursery to keep dirt and plants off the floor. The kids love it - they know that it signifies fun. It doesn't get hot in the sun. Other people always like it when they see it for the first time. The leather is fabulous quality." - Ellery of Shop Strands
"My daughter calls her mat 'my playground' and that's what it's become for us - our own personal playground. It lets us squeeze out the best of life and saves me from worrying about messes." - Lizzy
"I love using my Playground because it is functional. It folds up easily and fits in my purse, wipes down easily, and is comfortable to sit on. I also love using my playground for my outdoor teepee photo shoots. It keeps my teepees from getting dirty, and looks nice in our photos because of the impeccable quality. It's an amazing product. I use it on a daily basis." - Courtney of Tnees Tpees

Risks and challenges
We've already manufactured this fall line of Let's Playground™ mats, so we've done this before. Our process involves many steps and factories. These are much larger quantities with longer ship dates, so we're pushing hard to tighten up our lead time. With members on our team who have sourced and manufactured products for over five years, we're prepared! One thing we've done to overcome this is to set the fulfillment date far enough out to meet all expectations.
Despite how often we've tripped and stumbled (there are some serious learning curves to entrepreneurship), watching our product stand up and take its first steps has been nothing short of a thrill. We'll do whatever it takes to help see it run.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
