Everything You Need To Know About Our Kids Crash Pad
Are there cleaning and maintenance instructions for your kids crash pads?
If you're wondering about the cleaning and maintenance instructions for our kids crash pads, you've come to the right place. We understand that keeping your child's climbing equipment clean and well-maintained is essential for their safety and enjoyment. In this FAQ section, we'll provide you with valuable insights and instructions on how to clean and maintain our crash pads effectively.
Cleaning Instructions for Kids Crash Pads
Regular Dusting and Spot Cleaning
To maintain the cleanliness of your kids crash pads, we recommend regular dusting and spot cleaning. Use a soft brush or cloth to remove any loose dirt, dust, or debris from the surface of the crash pad. Gently brush or wipe in a circular motion, ensuring that all areas of the crash pad are covered. This simple cleaning routine helps keep the crash pad free from surface dirt and maintains its appearance.
Yes, our kids crash mat cover is machine washable! We have kids of our own and completely understand how those little hands can sometimes get into mischief! The fabric covers can be easily removed at any time and are 100% machine washable. We recommend washing in cold water and hang drying to prevent fabric shrinkage and keep the colors as intact as possible. We also suggest using a water-based detergent.
Maintenance Tips for Kids Crash Pads
It's important to inspect your kids crash pads regularly for any signs of wear, tear, or damage. Check the stitching, straps, and foam for any visible issues. If you notice any frayed stitching, loose straps, or significant damage to the foam, it's advisable to discontinue using the crash pad and contact our customer support for further assistance.
The foam in our kids crash pads is designed to provide optimal cushioning and protection. To maintain its performance and longevity, avoid exposing the crash pad to excessive moisture or liquids that could lead to mold or mildew growth. If the foam becomes wet, it's essential to
ensure thorough drying before storing the crash pad.
Proper storage of your kids crash pad is crucial for its longevity. Ensure that the crash pad is completely dry before folding or storing it. It's recommended to store the crash pad in a clean, dry area away from direct sunlight, moisture, and extreme temperatures. Folding the crash pad according to the manufacturer's instructions will help preserve its shape and prevent unnecessary stress on the foam.
Optional foam lining
The fabric on our crash pad isn’t waterproof. We made this decision because we wanted our fabric to be chemicals free for your children’s protection. But we do understand that kids can make some messes. If you prefer, you can purchase a waterproof foam lining separately here. This will give you the extra protection to keep the soft interior of your crash pad white.
At Lil Boulder, we're committed to providing exceptional customer support and guidance. If you have any specific questions or need assistance with the cleaning or maintenance of your kids crash pads, our knowledgeable team is here to help.

Why do I need crash pads for my kids climbing wall?
At Lil Boulder, we understand the importance of safety and the peace of mind it brings when your child is engaged in climbing activities. In this section, we'll explore the reasons why crash pads are essential for your kids climbing wall and how they enhance the overall climbing experience.
Protection from Falls:
The primary purpose of a crash pad is to provide a safe landing surface for your child in case of falls or jumps from the climbing wall. Climbing can be an exhilarating activity, but it also comes with inherent risks. By placing crash pads strategically around the base of the climbing wall, you create a cushioned area that absorbs the impact of falls, reducing the risk of injury. Crash pads act as a protective barrier, giving your child the confidence to explore their climbing skills while minimizing the potential for harm.
When children know they have a soft and secure landing surface, it boosts their confidence in trying new climbing routes and techniques. Crash pads offer a sense of security and reassurance, allowing children to push their limits and take calculated risks. With the knowledge that they have a reliable safety measure in place, children are more likely to
overcome fear, gain confidence in their abilities, and enjoy the thrill of climbing to greater heights.
Comfort during Extended Climbing Sessions:
Climbing can be physically demanding, especially during longer climbing sessions. Crash pads provide an additional
layer of comfort, reducing the strain on your child's joints and muscles. The soft and cushioned landing surface absorbs the impact and minimizes fatigue,
allowing your child to climb for longer periods without discomfort. The added comfort ensures that your child can fully immerse themselves in the climbing experience and enjoy every moment of their climbing adventure.
Skill Development and Progression:
Crash pads play a crucial role in supporting your child's skill development and progression in climbing. As your child advances in their climbing abilities, they may attempt more challenging routes or learn new techniques. With crash pads in place, they can confidently push their boundaries, knowing that they have a safe landing area to practice and refine their skills. Crash pads foster a positive learning environment, enabling children to improve their balance, coordination, problem-solving, and spatial awareness at their own pace.
Versatility and Flexibility:
Crash pads offer versatility and flexibility in designing your kids climbing wall. You can strategically position them to create dynamic and varied climbing routes. By adjusting the placement and arrangement of the crash pads, you can modify the difficulty level of the climbs, encouraging your child to explore different movements, holds, and challenges. This versatility allows for continuous engagement and prevents boredom, as the climbing wall can be easily adapted to suit your child's evolving abilities and interests.
Easy Set-up and Portability:
Setting up crash pads for your kids climbing wall is quick and easy. They can be easily positioned and secured in place
using Velcro straps or other attachment methods. In addition, crash pads are designed to be portable, making them convenient for indoor or outdoor climbing sessions. You can effortlessly transport them to different locations, ensuring that your child can enjoy climbing adventures wherever they go.

Do you have more information on the manufacturing and materials?
Where is the crash pad made?
During the process of developing our product, we made diligent efforts to obtain materials from nearby sources and carry out manufacturing operations within Canada. Today, we take pride in the fact that our product design originates from Montreal, while our foam and zippers are fabricated in Quebec, and our covers are fully manufactured in Laval. Although our intention is to eventually acquire fabric from local suppliers, we currently procure fabrics made in China through a reputable Canadian distributor.
We strongly believe that sourcing and manufacturing locally offer several advantages, including maintaining strict control over the quality of our products and extending support to other local businesses, which in turn creates more employment opportunities for Canadians. With Lil Boulder, you can be confident that your hard-earned money contributes to our local economy and supports the livelihoods of workers in our community.
Is the foam safe?
As the safety of children is our utmost concern, we have exclusively chosen to construct our crash pad using CertiPUR-US® certified foam, which represents the highest industry standard. This certification ensures that our foam is free from flame retardants, mercury, lead, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and phthalates. Moreover, we have taken measures to minimize volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to safeguard indoor air quality. By utilizing CertiPUR-US® foam in our crash pad, we prioritize the well-being of children and provide peace of mind to our customers.
Can you tell me more about the ILD of your foam?
Through extensive testing with our young testers, we have carefully selected a foam with an ILD (Indentation Load Deflection) of 60 and a density of 1.5 lbs/ft3 for our crash pad. This particular choice was made with two key considerations in mind. Firstly, we wanted to ensure that the crash pad remains lightweight enough for children to handle and move the pieces on their own. Secondly, we took into account the thickness of our bases, which provides the necessary strength and durability over time. By striking the right balance between weight and robustness, we have designed a crash pad that is both manageable for kids and built to last.
Is your foam compressed?
Absolutely, our crash pad orders undergo compression before being packaged and shipped to you.
The compression process takes place specifically when the crash pad is being prepared for shipment, ensuring that it can fit neatly into its packaging. Once compressed, the crash pad can comfortably remain in its box for a period of up to two weeks without any concerns. However, it is important to note that we advise against waiting any longer than that, as foam cells that are compressed for an extended duration may risk potential damage. Therefore, we recommend timely unpacking and setting up of the crash pad to ensure its optimal condition upon arrival.
What about the fabric?
The crash pad is crafted from a Micro Brushed Velveteen fabric, which is a blend of polyester and cotton. This fabric is specifically chosen for its exceptional ability to prevent pieces from slipping apart and effectively hold builds together. It features a soft and low pile texture, offering a velvety finish with subtle modeling effects throughout. Not only will you appreciate the smooth sensation it provides, but you will also admire the luxurious appearance of its velvety finish.
Additionally, our fabric meets fire retardant standards without the need for any additional sprays or chemicals. It complies with CALTB117-2013, NFPA 260 Class 1, and UFAC Class 1 standards, ensuring the crash pad's safety and giving you peace of mind. You can enjoy the crash pad's comfort and aesthetics without compromising on fire safety requirements.
Do you make the crash pad yourself?
We partner with a fantastic, sustainable, kid-friendly small business in Canada, called Go Coconut. Their team are experts in making kids play couches and work closely with us to make a crash mat that is safe for kids, looks great in your home, and can be used both for climbing and other experiential play! We’re proud of our partnership and hope you’re excited to be supporting other local, sustainable businesses with your purchase!
How long can my crash pad remain safely compressed in it’s box?
In order to facilitate efficient shipping, the crash pad undergoes compression before being sent to you. It is important to note that this compression process does not have any adverse effects on the foam over the relatively short duration utilized by our shippers for transportation.
However, it is crucial to be mindful of prolonged compression beyond this period, as it can lead to two potential outcomes. Firstly, it may take a longer time for the crash pad to fully regain its original shape and dimensions. Secondly, there is a risk of potential damage to the foam density if compression is sustained for an extended period.
To ensure the best results and maintain the optimal condition of the crash pad, we strongly recommend promptly opening the box upon receipt. By doing so, you allow the crash pad to expand and resume its intended shape, providing you with the desired functionality and comfort.
