BO and KO Baby
Bo and Ko Pepi Playmat
These BO & KO Playmats are the perfect taonga (treasure) for your pēpi (baby).
Having the freedom to move unrestricted on the floor allows your pēpi to strengthen their muscles and develop their motor skills and coordination. This will lead to rolling over, sitting up, crawling and then walking. Our cushioned playmats will protect your little one against bumps and falls while they develop these skills.
Behind the design: This design signifies new life, new beginnings and the journey of your growing pēpi.
Playmats are reversible with a neutral backing colour and come in a convenient drawstring bag for storage.
Dimensions : 130 x 130cm

Cold gentle machine wash or handwash

"We hope to encourage indigenous communities throughout Aotearoa and abroad to be proud of their whakapapa and cultural identity. Believing that this begins in the home and better yet, from birth, we have curated quality Māori and Pacific Island taonga for your pēpi (baby).
Ko Ngātokimatawhaorua te waka, Ko Ngāpuhi te iwi, ko Ngāti Korokoro te hapu, ko Amy toku ingoa.
Ko Tainui te waka, ko Ngāti Hinerangi te iwi, ko Ngāti Tokotoko te hapu, ko Dayna toku ingoa.
Ko wai tātou? Ko "BO & KO Baby" mātou. "BO" represents Amy's pēpi 'Beau', and “KO” represents Dayna's pēpi/pepe 'Koree', our pēpi/pepe are of Ngāpuhi, Ngāti Hinerangi, and Samoan descent. We thought it extremely fitting to name our pakihi (business) after the two most precious little humans in our lives that have given us the drive and motivation to bring this idea to life.
BO & KO Baby is a pakihi made up of two māmā (us), our two tāne and our four tamariki. The kaupapa of our pakihi began while we were on maternity leave with our first pēpi. Looking to source baby products to celebrate our babies heritage, we identified a lack of cultural baby goods in the market. Because of this, we looked at designing our own products. This idea expanded into what we are today, offering our products for whānau/aiga throughout Aotearoa and abroad.
