Monkey Mat Review

My family and I love to go on outdoor adventures and picnics are always one of our favorite activities. We often pack a light lunch when heading out hiking or bicycling. It is always a challenge to juggle eating our foods because it just isn’t practical to pack a table cloth in our backpack. Recently, we discovered an innovative product that is a “must-have” for all parents in my opinion.

Monkey Mat® Review

The Monkey Mat® is such a simple yet brilliant idea because it allows me to set up a clean surface virtually anywhere. What makes this product so useful is that it is portable and compact so I can toss it in my backpack, bag or even keep it in my car. The Monkey Mat zips up easily, folds into itself when not in use and has a clip for on the go….it couldn’t be easier to use.

We recently went on a camping trip and I got frustrated that I forgot the camping table cloth we use for the picnic table. My husband reminded me that we had the Monkey Mat in the back of the truck and it worked perfectly! I love the fact that it has little weight ends so that it stays put and doesn’t blow around.

Monkey Mat® Review

There are so many different ways I can envision using The Monkey Mat i.e. at the beach (the material is perfect for this outing), for outdoor or indoor yoga, picnics, park trips, home school field trips, reading outdoors, sporting events, concerts and a clean surface for little ones to play on.

Monkey Mat® Review

The Monkey Mat was very easy to clean after our camping trip as I simply washed it on gentle cycle and air dried it (you can dry on low heat if you prefer). It is available in four vibrant colors including pink, orange, dark khaki and blue. This is such a useful product for all ages and something really creative and unique as a baby shower gift idea. It is available for purchase for the SRP of $39.99 and you are invited to visit The Monkey Mat store to learn more about it.
