My best friend purchased two of these for her home then bought me the grey one. I just wouldn't have spent the money myself but after having it this mat is absolutely perfect. It's not only nice looking but very squishy and safe for my baby that's still falling over at times. And my knees when I'm on the floor with her. I'm using it against the wall with north states playyard and it's a nice size play area. It's by far better than any of the mats I've seen at daycares. Love it!
