This is such a beautiful play mat! We just got it today and it is the perfect thickness so that our baby can crawl and move around on! Not only is it stylish but it would also be a great play mat for young babies since it has a dark and light contrast that they can see. Also, the colors are true to what you see in the photo. We had such great customer service when we contacted the seller and asked when they would be in stock again, they were prompt to respond and even sent us an email as soon as they restocked it.
