What Is The Play Mat?
The Play Mat is a multi-purpose mat which allows you to assess, step and play for fitness, anytime, anywhere. It is a mat to facilitate bonding with friends and families through active activities! There are 3 stated use of the mats.
- Access For Fitness: You can do simple assessments to test your balance, flexibility and muscular endurance - make it fun by competing with your kids too!
- Step For Fitness: Use the mat for fun activities involving memory and movement, which helps improve sensorimotor skills and cognition, and reduce fall-related injuries. Perhaps something to encourage grandpa and grandma to take part together too!
- Play For Fitness: It also includes a great game to strengthen family bonding through fun and strength-related exercises.

Do note that each household is limited to 1 mat only.
We Collected Ours In The First Collection
We had the play mat for awhile. The collection process was relatively simple, just bring your collection email to the collection centre to collect - bring along your ID for verification. You can also collect on behalf, but need to at least bring a picture of the ID.
We played it a couple of times with the kids, and even had grandma and grandpa join in the fun too. The game we played is the "Sport and Ladder" where you are the pieces and you need to complete simple exercises when you land on the boxes.
*Note that the mat is quite big and you will need some space to open it up.
