Cool play mat. Only wishJOANCool play mat. Only wish they had accessories to accompany it.5
Gift for Great NieceJMM824My nephew and his wife loved the blanket for their little girl...she couldn't wait to take it home for her to lay on it. She's still real little but in a few months it will be perfect.5
Excellent quilted blanketJellybeanteacherThis is great for babies and tummy time. It’s very cushy and the decor and attachments are excellent!5
Baby PlaymatPrincessPatchenNice and large, but nothing special for the price. If my baby hadnt spit up on it the first time she tried it, i would have returned it. If the price was more reasonable, i would say the bang was the worth the buck, but at that price point you might as well get a more traditional play mat.2
Love it every dayJulia1234567This is such a cute mat! We use it every day, it has a nice bit of cushion for our baby as he works up to crawling. Cute built in toys for him to strive for And machine washable!!! We wash this at least once a week usually more and spit up wipes pretty well in the meantime.5
Good play matIchbinlinhIt has many sensory features. Really good play mat, especially at this price point. I just wish it has more cushions in case the child might fall.4
Love it!ApelasWe bought this about a month ago and my little one is almost 4 months old and she love it! It’s not overwhelming for her she really likes the octopus on it. The fabric is a great quality, and it’s cushy enough that she is comfortable laying on it5
Love the animalsSandyhudPerfect size, right amount of plush and colorful for baby.5
YaZackI bought this for my 4 month old grandson and he loves it. He has started rolling over and it a great mat for that. He is also starting to be aware of all the of wonderful sea creatures on the perimeter. I love the crinkly claws of the crab. I also love the underneath side. It is so durable, that I can even bring it outside on the back deck. It would probably even work on the grass!5
Large and perfectly interactivePlaymatUses for about two months now. Has really helped us do more tummy time and allows him significantly more space to roll around and play. He loves the crabs in the Wave; it’s been so much fun playing with him on this fantastic mat!!!5
A great baby giftMargarida70I bought it for a friend for her first baby - he is 6months old and keeps entertained with the fish and others that are attached to it.5
Love the comforter feelKadieDLove the products plush comforter feeling, when washed however the crab, octopus and other attached items don’t lay correctly afterwards and the orange fuzz from the octopus and crab get everywhere! We shook it out and th May itself works well still but would be better if the fluff that fills the attached items didn’t make the items less plush.4
Great sensory elementsauntWas pleasantly surprised to find that the octopus arm has a squeaker in it, the crab legs accordion and can be stretched out and have crinkly sounding filling, and the star fish has a reflective surface. It's not just a play mat, it's a stimulating learning center!5
Awesome for babies, great qualityChrisCAThis KLAPPA mat is awesome for babies, it includes some sewn items (like a crab, octopus, star, algae, etc...) with different textures that babies can play with, it is padded, and also fully machine washable. It looks gorgeous, and babies love it. Quality is top notch. We use it every day, either directly on the floor or over our Friheten L sectional.5

Play turns us into human beings

Look, touch, push, lift… play is a way for your baby to develop their senses, to get orientated and to try to understand their surroundings. With the KLAPPA toys collection we wanted to develop toys which stimulate this journey of discovery and contribute to the important interaction between you and your baby. From a social context, the child grows through play, and becomes a human being.

When a new born baby’s eyes open for the first time, the central nervous system is still not yet fully developed. The eyes cannot see a distance of more than 7⅞-15¾", about as far away as the nursing mother's face. But by interacting with a variety of impressions, like colors, shapes, touches and sounds, the development of the small child's brain is stimulated. This is explained by researcher Krister Svensson, who has studied children's development, play and learning for many years. "But resting is just as important as the stimulation. The brain occasionally needs rest from the impressions in order to sort it all and relate everything to what it previously registered."

The details entice play

Toys adapted to the small baby can contribute to these important impressions which stimulate the brain's development. But what is it that really makes a certain toy enticing to the child? "Often it's something that stands out in their surroundings and draws attention to itself", says Krister. "Maybe black dots on a yellow giraffe or the sound of a rattle." Designer Malin Unnborn, who designed the KLAPPA toys collection, wanted to find those specific details that could create curiosity and lead to play. "For example, for the picture book and the ball I used colours with strong contrasts and fabrics with different structures, such as glossy and matte, soft and rough." On the snuggle blanket, the play mat and the baby gym, Malin made shark fins, ears and other details that stick out just enough for small and curious fingers to pinch them.

Toys create interaction

KLAPPA became an entire world of imaginative animals, plants and planets to explore. ”Maybe it’s not that important for the baby that it's a crab looking up at the edge of the play mat”, Malin says. "But it can entice an older child to play with their younger sibling." Krister feels that toys also play an important social function in the child's development. "They act as tools for social interaction between you and your child, and it's you who gives the toys life and meaning." For example, by naming a rattle 'a yellow giraffe', you can talk about it, and when you take turns holding the giraffe, an understanding in the child arises as to how they themselves are a part of a context. Play is based on interaction and is quite simply a necessity for a human being’s development, says Krister. "To become a human being requires interaction with other people."


What is cotton?

Cotton is one of the world's most appreciated and used natural fibers. Textiles in cotton are soft, hardwearing and can be washed at high temperatures. They are also good at breathing and absorbing moisture – making them pleasant to wear close to the body. Today at IKEA we use more and more recycled cotton and strive to make sure that all the new cotton we use has been grown and produced with less and less amounts of pesticides, fertilizers and water.
