Monkey Mat Portable Play Surface
Did anyone else see this great product on Shark Tank? It's a 5'x5' machine washable nylon mat that is perfect for picnics, sports, and the beach. It has an attached bag that it actually fits back into (I've done it and it really fits!). Toys can be hooked in the center, the corners are weighted down so it won't blow away, and it doesn't collect grass and leaves like my other bulky blankets. This is so lightweight & easy to just clip to my diaper bag and have when needed!
From now through 5/31, save $5 by using the promo code OXFORD5 when you shop at www.monkeymat.com!
