Recently purchased to provide a safe island in a sea of hardwood floors for our son to practice crawling. So far, so good! He's taken a few spills and the mat is plenty cushy enough to make for a soft landing. Our older daughter also loves playing on it. We've had snack spillage as well and it is very easy to clean. I did not notice any strong smell to the mat and has not had any issues with indentation marks. Thinking about buying another one for our downstairs area!
