This product is great, it's a set of 30 interlocking floor tiles of different colours. I wanted to buy my baby cousin something to keep him from fiddling about with all the house appliances, and this product did the trick perfectly. She loved assembling the tiles into different floor patterns; we showed her how to create a cube with the tiles as well, which she found very exciting! Not only did she love the product, I did too!.. it covered up my original carpet and prevented any spillings or dirty things getting on it! The mats cover a total area of "1.53m x 1.83m" so a generous size. Each tile is 30cm x 30cm, and 12mm thick.
The product itself is very safe - it's made of 'high density' foam which does not rip or fall apart. I looked around and Alpha Mats have a very high quality material, unlike PVC which breaks apart easily from other products I have seen. Although the material is tough its very lightweight and spongy - it contracts when you put pressure on the material. Very safe.
If you are thinking about buying a product like this and think the Play Mat 30 is good enough, be sure to check out the "create your own Floor" section of the Alpha Mats site. There, you can buy any letter or colour tile they offer. I'll be purchasing the required letters to spell my baby cousins name after this review!
Overall couldn't be happier with the Play Mat 30. It's safe, the toddler loves it, and it even protects my floor from her grubby fingers! Highly recommended for any toddler.
