Very pleased with the matt. Bought it mainly for my 8 month old. He refuses to learn his balance and keeps trying to use his head to stand up (head on floor, butt in the air.) to say the least it is a sight to see. However the matt is to protect his little head as he keeps taking spills from not having his balance quite yet. We've only had the matt a few days and it has saved us a lot of crying and screaming from tiny booms lol.
My 5yr old loves the matt as well. She plays with the numbers and is trying to teach her brother his letters & numbers. Worth the money, esp. since I bought at a time when there was a $10 off coupon.
