Whether you have a brand new baby who's discovering the joys of tummy time, a curious crawler, or a playtime obsessed toddler, play mats offer little ones and parents a safe and comfortable environment to bond and explore. Cushier than carpeting and far easier to clean, they often take up a significant amount of well-used space—and like a lot of baby gear, there are plenty on the market that are eye-poppingly busy and totally clash with your decor.

So, you can imagine how quickly we fell in love with Toki Mats. And judging by the fact they've sold out multiple times, tons of other mamas have, too.

Created by mama, Eli Yonas in 2017, Toki Mats creates modern, safe and stylish play mats for babies and toddlers. After giving birth to her second baby, Eli found herself in need of a comfy spot for her little ones to rest, play and learn (and get down on the floor alongside them!) She made it her mission to create a safe and non-toxic pad that's as functional as it is beautiful. Through nap times and maternity leave, she designed Toki Mats.

Inside and out, they're play mat perfection. The washable, 100% cotton covers feature fresh, neutral designs that feel right at home in any space while the non-toxic and chemical-free insert is made from the highest quality and squishiest natural foam. They're also produced at a woman-owned cut and sew factory in San Francisco. Additionally, they're designed with portability in mind. Because Toki mats have two foam inserts, they are made to easily fold in half for storage or to take along on an adventure to the park or grandma's house.

We're thrilled to have them back in stock, but don't wait too long to snag yours. They're sure to sell out fast! Shop our favorites below or check out the rest of the collection in the Motherly Shop.
