My family enjoys spending a lot of time outdoors, which means we need to be ready for anything. One of the things we sometimes forget about is having a blanket to place down when we need to rest or have a bite to eat. Monkey Mat, as seen on Shark Tank, makes it convenient to make your space, any place, whether you are outdoors or indoors.
Thank you to Monkey Mat and US Family Guide for providing my family with a complimentary mat to use in exchange for our honest review. I only share products and services that will benefit my readers. All opinions are my own.
We usually carry a blanket, extra towels, and often, a plastic tablecloth in our car in case we need to sit on the ground or place it over a table while we're outdoors. However, there have been a few times we didn't bring a blanket or tablecloth, causing us an inconvenience when we needed to sit or cover a dirty table.
Monkey Mat eliminates that inconvenience because it's easier to carry constantly on your person without having to just leave it in the car. It comes in a small enough zip-up pouch that has a clip-on belt for you to attach it to your bag, stroller, etc. I love this feature about Monkey Mat since I'd rather not carry around a big blanket everywhere I go.
Another great feature of the mat are the weighted corners. They make it heavier to stay down and it has loops for you to place stakes (which we also received with the mat), so that it would keep the mat grounded in the grass or sand. You can purchase the stakes separately on the site, too.
We've been using our Monkey Mat at the park and beach, but you can also use it indoors at places that may not always have a place to sit, such as a crowded airport or concert. If you have a baby and you need to lay out some toys to keep him busy, the Monkey Mat can be a life-saver!
The mat is super easy to fold and fit back into the small pouch. When it's windy outside, it was easier for two of us to work together to fold it back up.
Afterward, place it back in the pouch, zip it, clip it, and you're done! The pouch is actually connected onto the mat the entire time. That works well for me since I might lose it if it wasn't attached!
I either clip the Monkey Mat onto a handle of my purse or a backpack. If I was to go to a theme park or somewhere where we'd be walking for hours, I would probably clip it to the stroller to keep it from getting lost.
The size is just right for all four of us to sit down. I wish we had this when we went to an outdoor movie over this past summer. We didn't realize our mall was showing an outdoor movie that night while we were already there shopping. Therefore, we did 't have a blanket on us while we were walking around.
The Monkey Mat would have been perfect for sitting down in front of the screen. Imagine all the other places or activities this mat would come in handy: sports games, traveling, road trips, nap time for babies and kids indoors and outdoors, and picnics. I'm sure you can think of more.

I'm glad I don't have to worry about dirty floors indoors or not having anywhere to sit while we're out hiking or enjoying the beach.
