  • Great for travel! Love the simple design not overstimulating. Easy clean and easy to take on the go. Sep 30, 2022

  • Great product for tummy time! There isn't a great storage option though - mine just came in a cardboard box. Jun 20, 2022

  • Such a cute design. Very easy to prop up but not a sturdy prop. Easy to fold and take put up. The prop pillow really helps my baby as he doesn’t slip when doing tummy time. Mar 17, 2022

  • Love this item. My son is older now and uses it as a mat to sit on while playing. Mar 10, 2022

  • Bought this because of the little prop up pillow and toys because my baby hates tummy time. She is 4 months old and so far we have not gotten any use out of this. She still hates tummy time! Mar 04, 2022

  • my baby was not at all interested. Jan 07, 2022

  • It has been a nice mat to lay my son on in the living room but doesn't do much more than a blanket would. Oct 29, 2021

  • I love how this product can easily be moved from room to room and easily cleaned! My three month old loves this mat and keeps him entertained Sep 13, 2021

  • Ehhh, mine didn't really take to it. Jun 02, 2021

  • I’m neutral on this. Didn’t love but didn’t hate. It’s cute and nice that you can clip toys on to it but that’s about all it had going for it. Easier just to get a blanket out and some toys. May 12, 2021

  • My daughter doesn't like it as much for tummy time but she likes the detachable pillow and mirror for toys. Apr 30, 2021

    Started tummy time from week 1 with this set. Pillow makes tummy time easier, and bubs loves the crinkly sound when playing with the seal. Rattle & mirror keep him from fussing while on tummy. Apr 09, 2021

  • It’s okay, the prop up pillow could be a little more thicker for more support. Mar 15, 2021

  • The price on this mat is great! I got it to encourage my son to be on his tummy more but I wouldn’t say this did that. Feb 28, 2021

  • This doesn't take up tons of space, not cushioned but definitely still works for tummy time. The toys that come with it are very nice and keep the small one distracted. Love the little stuffed animal. Dec 22, 2020

  • Cheap and not engaging at all for babies. A Waste of $30. No better than a blanket on the floor. Dec 16, 2020

  • Honestly, I hardly used this, because putting a plush blanket on the floor with some toys does the same thing. I wish I would’ve replaced this with something more useful on my registry. Cute though! Oct 02, 2020

  • So affordable and perfect for tummy time. Jul 23, 2020

    I found this to be pointless. A blanket on the ground would be just as good. Or an activity center. Jul 23, 2020

  • Cute, inexpensive play mat. Soft place for tummy time, my son loved looking in the mirror. Nothing too special but gave a nice clean space off the floor to practice lifting his head and rolling. Jun 09, 2020

    • Belton, Missouri

    It didn't really keep my 6 week olds attention at all, could care less about the toys and would use the pillow to lay his head on instead. Maybe they should add lights or sounds, that might help. May 21, 2020

    Great option for tummy time! Well made, absolutely love the colors and very easy to clean. Apr 21, 2020

  • really helped my little with tummy time which most babys hate Apr 10, 2020

  • My 3 month old loves to stare at the bear! It is such soft material, and the prop pillow doesn't slide at all! It has made tummy time way more enjoyable for my little one. Mar 21, 2020

  • My daughter loved this mat for tummy time! She loved the toys & that the mat was comfy! I love that this mat is easy to wash any messes from baby! Feb 25, 2020

  • This is just ok. We used it a little bit but it’s totally not necessary to do Tummy time. It basically just takes up space in our nursery in the floor now. Jan 15, 2020

  • great for baby to start playing. Dec 27, 2019

  • Great for newborns working on tummy time. Is on the smaller side if you want to use for a little get time as your baby grows. Dec 01, 2019

  • REALLY really cute, but my son didn't love it enough to justify having another thing in the house, I have more luck just laying him on a blanket with a couple toys. Oct 26, 2019

    Did not use this as much as i liked, but when it was used, she had a blast. Sep 18, 2019

  • This is a great play mat. My daughter really enjoys it and its easy to fold up for storage. Aug 28, 2019

  • I keep this mat in his nursery upstairs with a larger play mat downstairs. It’s perfect for tummy time after a diaper change and the material is soft. I also was able to wash it which I appreciate. Aug 28, 2019

  • Whenever I tried using this mat for tummy time my son seemed to slip all over with the fabric, making it more difficult for him to hold himself or his head up. We just use a blanket now. Jul 16, 2019

    My one twin liked this for tummy time and my other one was not phased by it. Thankfully it was a gift so if it was only used a handful of times, I would feel okay about it. Jul 08, 2019

  • My son wasn't overly entertained by this during the short time that he could use it. I feel like he got too big to use it when he would have actually enjoyed it. Jun 06, 2019

  • My daughter hated tummy time but the pillow this comes with helped make it somewhat tolerable for her when she was little. She wasn’t very into the toys except for the mirror, but it was worth it. May 13, 2019

  • Was great when my daughter was small! May 02, 2019

  • my infant loved this. She liked that mirror and the little tummy pillow. I bought another for my niece. Apr 06, 2019

  • Meh. We got this at 3mo & DD quickly got bored with this mat. We still use the pillow if she's having a particularly fussy day with tummy time. This would have been better to have from the nb stage. Apr 06, 2019

  • Such a great product for tummy time. My son loved this! It comes with an extra pillow so you can prop up the baby (awesome). It has little toys too to keep baby entertained. Very affordable as well! Mar 22, 2019

  • Works fine, but not a necessary purchase. It's just as easy to set up an interesting tummy time space with a blanket and toys. The pillow prop is okay, but a bit small. Didn't use this for very long. Mar 20, 2019

  • My baby girl absolutely loves this mat! She loves all the colors and the ability to look at herself in the mirror! I also like how soft and cute it is! Mar 08, 2019

    Very cute, but my little one didn't have much interest in it. The pillow was nice for tummy time initially. Feb 28, 2019

  • My baby didn’t care for tummy time when I was using it and I don’t think it was stimulating enough. But it’s cute and provided a soft surface for her to scream into while on her tummy. Feb 06, 2019
