A few weeks ago, I was sent a Monkey Mat to try out and review. Featured on Shark Tank, the Monkey Mat is a portable mat that you can use anywhere. It’s perfect for the beach, picnics, and anywhere you might want a little something to sit on. The mat has weighted corners with loops to be able to stake it down if needed (stakes sold separately), an attached bag to fold it up into, and loops in the middle to attach keys or toys.
I have several ground blankets that I use, but they are pretty bulky and tend to take up a lot of room if I’m carrying stuff down to the beach. The Monkey Mat is lightweight and folds up small. I was able to drop it in my purse to take to the pool, and it took up almost no room. It’s also soft and silky feeling, but still durable at the same time. I received a set of the stakes with it and they were fairly sturdy. They are perfect for the beach and any type of soft soil.
I think that my favorite feature is the loops in the middle for the keys/toys. I would have loved to have had something like that when my daughter was little.
Overall, the Monkey Mat is a great item. It folds up small, is soft, and durable. I am looking forward to getting a lot of use out of it. The mat is available at the Monkey Mat website. Also, you can use coupon code “USFAM” for $5 off and free shipping.
I received the above mentioned item for free for a review. All opinions are 100% my own.
