Little Nomad™ Beautifully Illustrated Printed Play Mats

Finally, a practical foam play mat can be part of your plans without sacrificing style - Hooray‬!

 

 

Designed exclusively for Little Nomad™ by Designer & Illustrator, Sophia Vincent Guy, our flagship design is a beautiful illustration reminiscent of an heirloom carpet. 

Layering textures, colors and patterns, this beautiful design is applied to a premium quality, non-toxic, foam play mat - resulting in what appears to be a rug, but has all of the practical features that soft foam flooring can offer.

Little Nomad™ Play Mats will be manufactured using premium quality EVA foam.

 

Have you ever closely watched a baby learn to sit up and crawl? Watching my daughter Taliah roll around on her mat, lifting her legs in the air, doing downward dog… she looked like a tiny yogi master, harnessing all her might into her hands and feet...it was pretty adorable. Our design inspiration was to create something that resembled a beautiful rug, and evoked the patterns of a bohemian yoga studio. Somewhere your little one can practice his or her daily stretches and roam free.

It was from this same idea that our mascot, Yoga Bunny, was born. Yoga Bunny is the spirit animal of Little Nomad™ and little ones everywhere, expressing all of their tiny might as they learn to move.  We’re hoping you and your little one love Yoga Bunny as much as we do, so we we’ve incorporated her into some of our Backer Rewards.

 

Dimensions

One Play Mat is 4 ft x 6 ft // 24 square feet.

Includes six 2 ft x 2 ft tiles and twelve edging bonders which may be applied to the outer edges to create a finished look. 

Two Play Mats joined are 8 ft x 6 ft // 48 square feet.

Additional sets may be joined together endlessly to create a larger play area. 

Two Color Choices - You will make your selection via email survey when the campaign closes.

Easy to Clean - Spot clean with damp cloth and mild soap as needed.

Easy to Assemble - Click together, add edges around border. 

Materials

Little Nomad™ play mats will be made of EVA foam, its the same material most flip flops and bath toys are made of. We've selected premium quality materials that meet the highest safety standards for EVA foam mats worldwide. Mat thickness is approximately 0.47 inch / 1.2 cm. EVA foam is BPA free.

Care Instructions 

The printed surface of our mats are designed to handle normal foot traffic, but high heels, pets or sharp objects may puncture the mats so should be avoided. 

Multi Purpose Soft Flooring Throughout Your Home

Mats can be used throughout your home where ever soft flooring is needed.

Risks and challenges

It is my first priority to make sure all rewards are delivered with the utmost quality and in a timely manner as promised. Once funded, I will closely oversee manufacturing & fulfillment to ensure that Little Nomad Play Mats meet all quality expectations that I would expect as a customer and as a Mama. If for any reason we come across obstacles that delay our shipping dates, we'll be sure to keep you updated every step of the way.

There are always risks and challenges associated with manufacturing a physical product but I promise to face each challenge head on and deliver the best possible play mat to you by Fall of 2016!

Thank you for your support.
xx,
Elizabeth
