I was so excited to tell you all about the Monkey Mat this week! I wanted to take the kids outside for a picnic and show off all my favorite features. The Monkey Mat is a small, portable mat with weights and loopholes that make it the stay put while you focus on your picnic.
Then, it rained.
And I was excited! Oh how we needed this rain! I joyfully brought my Monkey Mat inside and the kids laughed at the sheer ridiculousness of eating on the living room floor.
Here are my favorite things about the Monkey Mat!
Just look at this adorable size! It has a zippered pouch connected to the mat – so it folds easily and compactly into the pouch and into my purse. I cannot think of another time that I was able to pack my picnic blanket in my purse like this. (And isn’t that print super cute? I think so!)
This is the middle of the Monkey Mat. It has 4 loops that you can put anything on. I think a fabulous idea is to attach your keys to it so they do not get lost when you are at a picnic. (Am I the only one that has a heck of a time finding them?) Or you can put toys on it for easy baby entertainment.
Every corner has small weights in them, to keep the mat down in the wind. The fabric is so light, that without these weights it really would just fly away. And those loops are perfect for putting sticks or spoons – or whatever you have on hand – into the ground to keep it in place. They found a way to go on a picnic with a super portable mat and keept it from being “gone with the wind.”
You can see here how large it is when it is unfolded. And it is made from a waterproof material – so I wasn’t afraid to let them drink in my living room either. Yes, it does wrinkle very easily. But, you can put it in the dryer on low for a tiny bit and those wrinkles come right out.
And even best part? It is machine washable. Ok, I think maybe the portability is the best part, but just throwing it in the machine rocks too.
