What Kind of KinderMats Should I Buy?
If you’re looking for a sleep mat that will meet the guidelines set by your child’s kindergarten / daycare center look no further than this 1″ Basic KinderMat.
It has a removable pillow and over-sized blanket and can be machine washed. Plus it features a great design your little one will love.
Olive Kids Nap Mat
A nap mat is the perfect gift for kids who are starting preschool or kindergarten. It’s something that they can bring to sleepovers, take with them on camping trips or simply lounge on during family movie nights. The best nap mats for toddlers are soft and comfortable. They should be easy to clean and fold, and have a pillow that is either included or removable, based on your child’s preference and developmental stage.
The Olive Kids Nap Mat is a great choice for young children who are still taking naps or need a place to lay down while at home or away. It is made from cotton and polyester for a soft surface that is also easy to wash. The mat is a half-inch thick and is designed to be safe for toddlers.
It also comes with a pillow and blanket that are both attached for convenient storage. It is CPSIA compliant and is GREENGUARD Gold Certified.
My First Memory Nap Mat
The UGG brand is known for its shearling boots, but they also make nap mats that are super-cozy. This plush pick comes in pink or gray with a dreamy space pattern and a removable pillow. It works with Regalo portable cots and is easy to wipe clean. It does not include bedding so you’ll want to send a blanket and toddler pillow with it for your child’s comfort. It also is not as thick as other mats on this list and is longer, but it does have a convenient carry handle.
This basic KinderMat rest mat is good for home, school, daycare and traveling. It folds to 4” X 11” X 19”. It features a red/blue color combination that makes it easy to keep track of which side touches the floor. It has a sturdy 5 mil vinyl covering and is made in Minnesota with USA materials. It is also water resistant and disinfectable. It can be machine washed and dryed.
Wildkins Nap Mat
The Wildkin Original Nap Mat is a reliable choice that comes in a variety of kid-friendly designs, from playful dinosaurs to colorful construction vehicles. It’s filled with a soft, comfortable down alternative and meets all daycare and preschool guidelines (including those for pillow thickness). The closure tabs and carrying handle make it easy for kids to use.
Parents love this affordable option because it’s soft, cozy and meets all the safety requirements for daycare and preschool. It also has a removable pillow and blanket and rolls up quickly with convenient carry handles. It’s available in 14 prints and can accommodate kids up to age six.
If your child loves Minnie Mouse, this is the nap mat for them. This quilted mat features an attached blanket and pillow, is 100 percent machine washable and can be purchased in eight fun designs. It’s also shorter than other mats on this list at 43 inches long. This is a great option for kids who outgrow their mats quickly or if you want to avoid repurchasing a nap mat every school year.
Angeles Nap Mat
This is a great nap mat for kids that can be used at kindergartens / day care centers. It is much more comfortable than many of the other kinder mats on this list as it has 2 inches of thickness rather than 1 inch. It also features an attached blanket and pillow. This nap mat is machine washable which is a plus in my book because there have been a lot of reports of kindermats pilling up during washing.
The padding inside this mat is made from polyester fill and provides a soft and bouncy sleeping surface for your child. It is available in a variety of designs including dinosaurs, clouds and crocodiles. It is easy to roll up and secures with Velcro for storage. It also has a carrying handle making it easy to carry around.
It is heat-sealed with radio frequency technology to resist bacteria and germs. This makes it a good option for a kinder mat to leave at daycare or school because it can be wiped clean.
