our story



Hi there!  I'm Megan, exhausted mama of three and founder of wander & roam...

I realized pretty quickly that as babies start to crawl and walk they also start to tumble and fall…and with a house filled with hardwood floors I needed something to soften those falls.

We started out with foam tiles, super cheap but not super soft and I couldn’t seem to keep them clean...especially in between the edges.  It drove me crazy. And my son also loved to pull them apart and the tiles would end up all over the house and it became another thing to pick up off the floor when the day was done.  Then I tried a mat with a fabric cover, but I found myself having to wash the cover every few days and I already had piles of laundry I couldn't keep up with, so the search continued.

When my second child was a few months old,   I set out to find a one-piece foam surface for him to wander and roam.  What I found was either covered in bright colors and letters or filled with toxic chemicals (click here to read more about what is found in most play mats on the market).

After over a year of testing what felt like a hundred different mats in my home, the wander mat was born. A one-piece truly non-toxic, super soft spot for babies, toddlers, and kids to wander and roam that blends in seamlessly with any home decor.  

Our mats are eco-friendly, hypoallergenic & easy to clean...use for play, yoga, and everything in between...
