As your little ones get older and enter the rough and tumble phase of playtime, having a few thick play-mats around the house can give you a little more peace of mind that they are not going to hurt themselves on your tiled or hard wood floors. Thick play-mats are also great for your little budding gymnasts as they practice their routines at home.

As important as a good set of quality kitchen knives, a cutting board is essential in the preparation of a variety of food dishes.

Curling up under a thick blanket on a cold night is one of those great comforting feelings. When the softness of the fabric and the weight of it is just right, it not only keeps us warm, but it seems to help us fall asleep. The only potential problems with thick blankets are storage – they tend to take up a lot of room when folded up – and washing, since they may need to be washed in over-sized machines.
