“Dirty airport floors. Two beautiful baby girls. Six hour layover. *CRINGE! *
A desperate desire arose for either a constant shower of sanitizer…or a portable, clean surface I could take EVERYwhere.
Not a bulky blanket (who has room?), or something I had to plan for in advance to have with me (I am just NOT that organized!!).
I soon realized I also wanted such a solution for hotel floors. Soccer games. Spontaneous picnics. Outdoor concerts. Local festivals. Sit-ups at the park (where Fido just was, * CRINGE * again)…
And so began the search for a portable, clean surface to take EVERYwhere.
Shockingly, nothing like it.
And so the Monkey Mat® madness began!..” -Monkey Mat-Our Story
The first thing I really loved about this was it’s compact size. I didn’t think that a 5×5 mat could really fit in such a small space, so I was a bit skeptical. My kids and I took it out of the bag to spread it out and see what it was all about.
The bag has it’s own strap, so that I can attach it to the diaper bag so that we’d have it where ever we went, which was very convenient! The great benefits of this mat is that it’s a water repellent, machine washable, weighted corners (so that it doesn’t get moved around) and loops, in case you want to add some extra grounding when you’re on grass. My ‘monkeys’ do move around and make messes quite a bit, so these benefits really help this momma out!
The Monkey Mat is a very convenient product to have for both moms and dads that travel places with their kids, short or long distance. The quality of the fabric is great, stylish and I feel like this mat will last us for a long time.
Their website has great tips about the Monkey Mat, a couple of them letting you know that the mat is easy to clean up and take with you anywhere you need it, so be sure to check out their website! Also, be sure to like them on Facebook and Twitter. This is an awesome product and I would highly recommend it to any parents who have little ones!
