Davin and I received this product in order to facilitate a review for our event geared towards great items for infants. All thoughts and opinions are that of our own and in no way have been influenced. PlaSmart Inc offers two variations of this Smart Mat.
Castletown and Happyville will delight and entertain even the newest edition to the family. The Smart Mat is 78″x46″ and easily covers the whole area of a gated play yard, which we keep in our dining room. Prior we had a rug which was a hassle to keep clean between food, dog hair flying, liquids from cups spilling, and baby drool. The bright vibrant colors thrill the eyes and imagination! My son use to throw his cars and rolling toys over the gate. Now, he actually tries to roll them on the roads of Happyville just like Daddy does.
It is actually surprising how light weight this Smart Mat is! You can easily roll it up and take with you to the beach or park. It wipes down easily and is made with EVA foam. It is recommended for ages 0+ and newborns love bright colors! I personally think it will be or “go to” for Fall picnics in the park due to it allowing us a comfortable place to sit without feeling the sticks or twigs under us like you would with a sheet or blanket. It also allows a level ground to play for those who like to crawl around. Most play area mats are based off carpet fabric which is easy to stain. You get to avoid this, along with easy germ clean up with the material these Smart Mats are made from!
With the Happyville Smart Mat you can integrate learning and milestone developments by teaching to move objects to certain buildings on the play area and through the streets of town. This is something that will grow with our son for years, once we remove the play fence he can use it as he really gets in to cars and building with blocks or other toys. Definitely worth the investment based on quality and imagination play alone.
PlaSmart Inc has a wide variety of imagination driven toys for all ages. To connect with them on social media you can find them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Want to learn more? There is a YouTUBE Channel too.
