One of the most popular baby play mats that we sell at Softmats is our interactive mat that plays music. The Music Parade Sound Mat offers children a variety of interactive opportunities as they play with the mat, and the music that it lets them interact with is something that we can’t help but love. While it may not be the alphabet or numbers, there are so many valuable benefits to exposing a child to music at such a young age. Here are just a few of them.
Create Neural Connections
Neurological development is one of the primary benefits that children see when they’re exposed to music. At this young age, babies are more susceptible to being able to hold onto the pieces that they’re exposed to. This is one of the things that parents are told to do while the baby is still in the womb, because the music does strengthen the neurons to create a positive or negative experience early on. By exposing your child at a young age, they are more likely to have a positive correlation with music and develop the neurons related to that.
A part of the interactive mat that plays music that we love is the opportunity for active learning. At this age, interactive learning is one of the best ways for children to develop skills and understanding, and this mat provides them with everything that they need in order to thrive. This allows for children to hear the music in a playful manner, and then give them the opportunity to answer questions and interact with the mat as a whole after they have gained the knowledge and understanding of what the mat offers. This helps develop skills and create a deeper understanding and connection between all of the opportunities that this mat offers.
Memory & Development
There is so much pressure on children to learn as they play, and in doing so it has taken away some of the joy that we all once experienced as we grew up.This may be helping children gain knowledge in specific areas, but it is also puts quite a bit of pressure on children before they should be exposed to it. The Softmat provides a fun way for children to interact, but it builds neurons and helps them develop all at the same time. This is a pressure free method for children to develop memory skills and retain their knowledge.
Softmats are one of the best ways to ensure that your child can interact in a beneficial ways. Order this musical mat and watch your child fall in love with the sound of music right before your eyes.
