Play Mat Comparison: Ruggish vs. Skip Hop

Play Mat Comparison: Ruggish vs. Skip Hop

Play mats are a great way to add some comfort and fun to any room, and two of our favorites are the Ruggish and the Skip Hop Play Mats because they are not only fun for your little ones but turn over and look great!

Both the Ruggish Co Double-Sided Play Rug and the Skip Hop Doubleplay Reversible Play Mat have a neutral, modern design on one side, and reverse to a fun activity mat for your kids. You'll be able to put these mats in any room without worrying about spills, slips, or scuffs because they're made out of comfortable foam and are easy to wipe clean when dirty. There are some differences in design and comfort levels so lets take a closer look at these two mats to help you make a fun design decision for you fam!

Ruggish Co Double-Sided Play Rug - Romy

The Double-Sided Play Rug comes in two light gray, classic designs (Romy and Lulu) and features a neutral street pattern on the flip side.

It's made from memory foam, so it's super comfy and is perfect for families that have hardwoods or tile throughout their home. Because of the memory foam it is also thick enough for workouts, napping and play!

It is super durable, waterproof and comes with a 1-year warranty from the manufacturer.

This mat is also much more expensive than the Skip Hop: $199 vs $100.

Skip Hop Doubleplay Reversible Play Mat - Vibrant Village

The Doubleplay Reversible Play Mat is the best of both worlds: a stylish, gray pattern on one side and a colorful, kid-friendly city pattern on the other! The play side is super bright and makes playtime interactive and fun!

The mat is foam, but isn't as thick or comfortable as the Ruggish mat, so may be a better option for placing in carpeted rooms.

It cleans with a quick wipe, and is completely PVC-free!

It's also thin enough that you can roll it up for easy storage or even traveling!

Whether you're planning on playing in the living room or the bedroom, on hard floor or carpets, play mats are a great way to add fun and stye to any room! Keep it stylish with the Ruggish and Skip Hop Reversible Play Mats and flip them to let your littles have fun wherever they are!
