My grandson Jordon loves to play fort. We build them in the living room and he spends hours in them playing in his own world of a 7 year old boy. When I received the Barn Dandy Nap Mat I was excited to give it to him to use in his fort. It has a beautiful retro fabric and it is generous in size (almost the size of a kid’s sleeping bag) and it comes with attached matching fabric ties and handle, so when you roll it up, it is so compact and easy to travel with, that you can literally take it anywhere.
It is great to have one stashed in the car, for school when the kids are at the age to take naps whether it’s pre-school or kindergarten, this will go and grow with them. It is very sturdy and the overall construction will take the stuff little boys (and little girls) can throw at it. And it comes in different beautiful bright fabrics, so little girls can have their own too. The only downside I found is it was a little skimpy on the filling.
If this nap mat was an inch or two thicker it would be perfect. Period. Because it is thin, I had to fold a blanket under it as the floor was too hard to use alone. Even on the carpet it was still too thin, but I still like the overall look, construction and ease of the nap mat. Jordon loves it so I am happy. Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
