Learn Local Areas

Featuring over 10 landmarks actually in Chelmsford, while the map is not 100% accurate in terms of distances, the position of the landmarks in relation to each other are.

This is SUPER important since Local Geography is within the Key Stage 1 curriculum!

Simplified Road Layout

Children aged 0-8 are a long way off from hitting the roads as drivers just yet. By featuring a simplified road layout, your Hippo Mat™ allows children to focus on a wider variety of places they love and recognise.

Superior Quality

Soft 'n' Safe

The marvellous microfibre velvet surface feels exactly as it sounds like it would. It's super soft and smooth with no nasty friction.

Non-Slip Backing

A lot of mats out there in the market aren't even backed with anything - the retailer will make you buy a non-slip mat separately! Our non-slip latex backing is added during the manufacturing process, and not only prevents the mat from slipping around, but adds overall durability making it a great addition in our opinion.

Enhanced Development

Children playing with their original and unique Hippo Mat™ will either consciously, or subconsciously, know the areas and landmarks featured on the map. Because of this they'll be stimulating and developing their brain at an accelerated rate as opposed to if they were just playing with a generic design where they didn't know the areas.

What happens when learning meets fun? Magic!

Introducing the Chelmsford Hippo Mat™. Combining playing, learning, and quirkiness all in one, this unique accessory will liven up and inspire your play area.

Featuring over ten landmarks, places, or quirks of Chelmsford, opportunities are rife for adventure.

Not only will the user be having awesome Chelmsford-themed fun while using this mat, they’ll also be developing their hand-eye co-ordination, social skills, and cognitive abilities too. The latter is even more important, since learning about Local Geography is in the Key Stage One curriculum!

Children’s skin can be sensitive – we know that. But not to worry, the Chelmsford Hippo Mat™ has been tested and approved ‒ the microfiber velvet surface is not only completely free from substances that may harm your child’s skin or health, but soft and smooth to the touch too.

Each and every Hippo Mat™ is built with a non-slip latex backing for when the playing gets intense and you need a solid foundation. Not only that, the pretty floral non-slip pattern protects your floor and acts as a noise dampener all in one.

CE and UKCA Certified.

Recommended for ages from 12 months.

Good question!

So, because the market for these items is largely unknown, only 100 Hippo Mat™s from each location are being created.

Depending on how it goes, more may be manufactured, however potentially not.

Either way, more will not be manufactured immediately, and there’s no guarantee any will be at all. As much as I’d like to, too many factors mean it’s just not possible.

So, if you’d like to guarantee your Hippo Mat™ the 100 now, and it’ll arrive between 1st – 7th September 2022.

You can keep an eye on how the design is coming along here, and you can also always keep in touch through our social media channels (at the bottom of this page).

If you don’t like the design, or you change your mind, you can receive a 100% refund at any time. Peace of mind achieved.

Alternatively, you can wait until more images exist and the item is officially available in September 2022. However I honestly can’t say if there’ll be any left.

If you have absolutely any more concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to ask: DM any of the social media accounts, or email hello@hippomat.uk and we’ll strive to squash any worries you may have 🙂

Thanks for reading!
