I love this toy!!!!
Chloe has recieved it as a present for Christmas. I must say it’s a brilliant toy and both me and Chloe love it.
Chloe doesn’t like to get messy (I know its very unusual for a toddler; she obviously got OCD from her mum:-) ) and I don’t like mess.
This mat is amazing for big babies (yes I still cannot bring myself to call Chloe a toddler) who just start to learn what drawing is and how to do it. This matt has a pen which you fill with water, kids can draw on the mat with “water”( yes water ! This means no colourful marks on the floor, furniture and walls … for now anyway) and as the water dries up the drawing disappears.
I would highly recommend this !
I remember looking at it and thinking it’s brilliant ! So we bought it without thinking any more about it.
Turns out it’s not as brilliant as it seemed:
1. The lying position isn’t too good, Chloe would stay in it for 5 minutes and then cry … Looking at it I don’t think that she was comfortable in it.
2. Making it in to a siting upport was another great feature – or that’s what I thought…. When baby needs support when sitting it’s because it goes to the side, fills backwards or forwards …. So having support only on the back doesn’t make any sense.
So we didn’t really use it … Until Chloe was around 4-5 months and when she started learning to sit on her own. I used to put her right inside it and I must say it was great as I could go and do things while she was safety siting secured from every angle.
Would I recommend it? Not for what it’s designed for, but I got my money’s worth of it by using it a baby sit guard …
