It can be difficult to enjoy your sandwich in the park while you’re watching your baby pass up her Cheerios for the far more interesting month-old chewing gum and grass-clipping entrée. Blankets are bulky and inconvenient, but with a lightweight Monkey Mat, you can just pull it out of its pouch and you have a clean surface to lunch on in no time. Monkey Mats are so portable you can keep one in the stroller, one in the car, and be able to put your kids down anywhere. Hotel lobby floor? No problem. The airport floor? Not so scary anymore!
