It's A Baby Boom! Wet-Felted Play Mats- Part 5 of 5

My three completed baby gifts.

 
A close-up of one of the cones...

...telescoped down.

 
Mat one with the cones flattened...

 
...and popped up for play.

 
Mat two with the cones down...

 
...and up...

...doesn't the purple one look like an elephant's trunk?

 
Mat three with its single cone down...

 
...and up.

 
As you can see...

...each of the play mats has convertible 'appendages'...

...for a baby to manipulate or hold onto.

The tubes can be pushed through to the back...

...or craftily 'peered through' for fun.

Since the cones were dried in the collapsed position...

...they easily fold back down when you want them flat again.

That really is rather ingenious of you, and with those bright colors and the soft wool, what is there for a baby NOT to like??? I'd say you have a hit with this one. And I bet baby would agree too. :)

Sandie--Hahaha...thanks!!

Oh.. so sweet games for babies. Such a nice, pretty, safe playing mat to train the little fingers and colors. Beautiful gifts idea.
