We have hard tile floors and these mats are so much better than carpet/rugs. They are comfortable for the kids to sit and play on or read books. The best part is I throw them in the tub with some disinfectant occassionally, rinse, airdry and I know they are germ free. You can't do that with carpet!
We use this mat outside with my son's sand and water table so he doesn't have to stand on the hot cement and its safer too. This mat has gotten wet and muddy and we just spray it off with the hose and it dries great very nicely padded too
Large squares, easy to put together. I have a daycare and I needed something soft for the little ones to crawl and play on. I ordered several of them to fill the space. Now, if the toddlers fall down, they are not as likely to get up crying because it didn't hurt when they landed!
I bought this for my 5 month old so she can have a safe playing area at her grandparent's house. They have wood floors like we do, but not as much floor space. It only covers a 4' x 4' area. We have the alphabet mat at our house that covers about a 6' x 8' area, but it is only 1/2" thick. Sometimes she takes a bad bump on them. These are a good 3/4" thick, and doesn't have as hard of a landing. They are coated with some type of teflon substance, so the floor is really slick when they are picked up.
I am really happy with the mats--they are much higher quality (and thicker) then other playmats I'd looked at. Although the solid color is a little boring--the thickness is nice and the large squares make it easy to put them away for cleaning. I'm using them to make a play area on our laminate floor for my 6 month old. I've seen him fall straight back from a sitting position and not be fazed (although I freaked)! These mats are great!
I bought two sets of these last Spring as padding for my living room floor for my 2 grandsons which were both under a year old. They provided a soft cushioned area for just learning to sit up, crawl and begin walking. We also used outside in the summer under a gated play area for the boys to be safe outdoors. When the children weren't here they were also great as mats for the adults to lie around the pool deck which was always too hot to stand on. Cleaned up well and are now in the playroom we just put together. We have wood floors which are slippery and tend to be cold in the winter. Love them and I am ordering 2 more sets to line the entire room.
My veterinarian recommended this product to help my dog, who has canine degenerative myelopathy, a genetic canine condition similart to Lou Gehrig's disease in humans, to help him get traction inside his pen. We have ceramic tile floors, and he has problems with slipping and falling. These mats are the perfect solution, because they are reversible, can be cleaned, and provide a softer surface for him. He has scratched some divots and made some holes with his large claws, and he has scratched some of the surface while "making a bed," but those incidents have not been serious problems. The mosaic of mats also helps to keep his pen open in a square shape and to keep it from "traveling." I will probably order several more sets to provide traction from the pen to the back door for him.
We purchased mats at the actual Walmart store, and then ordered additional mats online. The mats online were not the same as the ones that are available in the store (even though they look the same in the online picture, and the dimensions are the same), so we had to return the mats we ordered online and purchase more mats from the store again. We were unhappy with this because they were supposed to be matching mats and they weren't, so we lost out on the shipping and handling (which was a considerable amount because each box of 4 mats was sent in a separate box and we ordered 12 mats).
Thick and solid. Not plush or extra soft but does the job in providing a safe area on the garswood floors. Only downsideis the slippery wax like finish these mats leave behond oddly. Other than that Im a happy camper
For those complaining about it not being large enough. It says 24 inches square, 4 per box. This is a 4 foot by 4 foot area. This is where measuring factors in. And it CLEARLY says 1/2 inch thick. Also, it shows texture, unless noted you should ASSUME its the same on both sides. AND they are very affordable. Check out matting on other sites. This is worth the money especially if you are just having kids crawl on it or exercising on it.
When we ordered these mats we were expecting some nice cheap thin play mats for use under my sons playscape to keep grass and weeds at bay outdoors. When we received the item we were impressed. They are much thicker than they appear in pictures and while the mat itself is rather firm it also has a good bit of give to it. We are planning after a move to make an entire playroom with them. One thing we did notice was that after having them on our kitchen floor for a bit after first opening they seem to have made our tile rather slippery where they had been sitting. Not sure if there is some kind of coating on them that rubbed off, or if the texture just "buffed" my floors. Not bad just something to think about if you would be setting them up on that type of flooring and removing them at will.
I purchased theses mats to be use on the ground outside. They worked great. They made a nice play are for my one year old daughter while camping over the holiday weekend.
I was a bit disappointed that the mats are much harder than most parents indicated in the product reviews I read. I wanted some extra cushioning, but honestly - the carpet and carpet pad in my baby's playroom are softer for my little guy's falls. I'd recommend this product on hardwood floors though. On a positive note - the interlocking mats are functional and do stay connected. His cars and trucks roll really well on this surface. I can see that we'll get lots of use out of them... I can picture we'll be using them as added protection for future craft projects -- coloring books, finger painting, etc. They are waterproof and will also work well to add more cushion on the patio when we use his little pool. AND cleaning up spit-up is a breeze. So that's a really nice feature for me.
Was tired of constantly cleaning up spit up off our carpet once our son had learned to roll over in to his tummy..... This is easy to clean, I can move from room to room and also it has provided a gripped surface to help my son learn to crawl!!! There is a smell of the material but by no means is it strong and totally goes within a day or so. Nice to have something that matches our home decor and is for the baby but does not make our home look like a play yard!
My home is currently being renovated and the floors are bare plywood, I needed something to put on the floor for my 6mth old grandson to learn to crawl on. Prior to purchasing these mats I was using a few blankets which would get all bunched up under him as he moved around and also were not very soft and he was bumping his head on the floor, he got fussy quickly with this. With the mats baby and Nammie were both comfortable and stayed on the floor playing much longer. I liked the price of these mats because I had to purchase 2 sets to cover the area I wanted to. I also like the ease in putting them together and taking them apart as I only put them down when he is here. I would however recommend you also supply a storage tote for them. I am very satisfied with this product and wal-marts processing of my order. Thank you.
This is perfect fort 2yr old's play area which is his north state gate. I like its' thickness which protects my son's feet when he takes his shoes or slippers off. I also have one outside for when he plays with water. Easy clean up and overall good quality.
I am a Pediatric Physical Therapist and love these mats. They are easy enough to carry from the car and can be set up and pulled apart in a jiffy. I use a long sweater belt to tie them together for easy carry.
They provide the right amount of cushion to protect baby's head during therapy and the right amount of firmness (not too soft and not too hard).
Nice padding all the pads lock together very easy. Great product. The only downside is that it slides around on a hardwood floors.
(Although the manufacturer does not recommend it for hardwood floors) I haven't had a chance to clean anything off it but I'm sure my daughter will spill something soon. ;-)
A little harder than expected but they work out since we have hard wood floors and it'll be nicer to crawl on although they do slide around on the floors so you have to be careful or they'll come right out from under you. Would have been nice for them to be slide proof.
I don't know who is enjoying the mats more -- the 7 month old baby or me!! I am enjoying rolling on the floor with her. She is scooting around on the mats and just enjoying life. I have ordered my second set so she will have 24 square feet to play on.
