Monkey Mat: Portable Lightweight Mat Review {Giveaway}

Monkey Mat Giveaway!

The Monkey Mat is a portable lightweight and washable oversized mat (5-foot-by-5-foot) that is perfect to take with you to the beach, the park, backyard, play dates, picnics, hotels and more.

The Monkey Mat is made of durable and waterproof nylon that is machine washable and water repellant. Liquid spills are easily wiped right up and any dirt, sand, grass or mess shakes off easily!

I received a Monkey Mat to review and I absolutely love it. It truly is a must have for parents everywhere. First, I love that the mat is super lightweight and nowhere near as bulky as a blanket or beach towel. The Monkey Mat comes in its own bag that is small enough to carry inside of your purse or diaper bag, you can also clip it to your stroller’s handle on the go.

Monkey Mat

I also love that the Monkey Mat features weighted corners with loops that allow you to secure the mat to the ground, wonderful when you are at the beach or the park with a wriggly child.  They also added loops in the center of the mat to clip infant toys, keys or other items you want to keep handy.

I recommend you visit to learn more about the Monkey Mat and the mom behind the idea. You can also get your own and choose from a variety of fun colours available ($39.99 each). We have been using ours all the time this summer, I love having it in my purse at all times!
