You can buy them on eBay. I have a proper gym mat, which is two inches thick. My DDs (who do competitive gymnastics already) are forever flicking at home, so we got the mat. It really is a lifesaver. Try implay I think they were called, but if you search eBay for gymnastics mats, they come up and you can order a variety of colours and sizes for about £40.

Thanks for the posts. DD does gym at school but she's forever doing it at home too and we'd like something a bit more protective than the carpet!

DD does gym. They use the proper thick gym mats (like the ones used in school PE lessons) a bit like these

How old is she and what is she really trying to do? Is there any chance that she could go to a gym club where it would be safer with the right equipment and supervision?

It needs to be thicker I think deste as it's to protect her head, back etc should she fall when doing a movement.

Do you mean something like a yoga mat. I would try and get a non slip one if it is.

She happily does cartwheels from room to room etc but I would rather like a mat for head stands into forward rolls etc. the Internet is full of them so how do I know what to look for please?
