Cosyplay was founded in 2010 by Dr Kerstin Castle.
Kerstin, a mum of three boys and one girl, invented the cosyplay mat whilst on maternity leave with her third baby. Her inspiration came from the desire to spend time with her son on the floor to play and interact, but none of the play mats she could find were big and comfortable enough for both of them.
It was only after her fourth baby was born that Kerstin realised the full benefits of the cosyplay mat, which go well beyond enjoying tummy time.
Kerstin says:” From the point of view of child development, this is the best investment a parent could ever make.”

Having an in-depth understanding of chemistry means, that Kerstin is able to understand the scientific facts about chemicals in baby products. Cosyplay products have been developed beyond the safety standards required by British and European law.
Our truly innovative products use the most suitable high tech materials to create a happy and healthy environment for babies and their family.
Made in the UK
Did I mention we are fanatical about quality and safety? The only way in which we could assure the quality we desire was to manufacture in the UK. This way we are also able to support local businesses, carry out checks on suppliers in person and avoid transporting goods around a world.
Prior to founding cosyplay Ltd, Kerstin was an innovation manager for the NHS, helping doctors and nurses to develop their ideas into commercial products. Cosyplay mats are protected by intellectual property rights (EP2457471B1) and should not be copied by others. We advise customers to not accept cheap imitations.
