Creative Baby i-Mat Review

Now that school is out I am pulling out the toys that both girls really enjoy playing with. One of these toys is the i-Mat made by Creative Baby. This foam mat is not only easy to piece together since it’s in the shape of a large puzzle, but it’s also simple to take care of and comes with a zippered carrying case {great for travelling!!!}

We have the, “My Animal World” mat that teaches my girls barnyard animals, desert animals, ocean animals and more! It has cool tasks like, “Click on an animal with stripes,” or “click on a bird that doesn’t fly.” Both my 2 year-old and my 5 year-old really get into playing the game, which is great because the i-Mat offers both basic and advanced levels of games.

This toy has a ton of other features too:

  • Teaches your child 3 languages – English, Spanish, and Chinese.
  • Features real animal sounds and music
  • Teaches vocabulary and comprehension
  • Features a voice recorder for capturing funny, silly moments

The i-Mat is recommended for babies 6 months and above, personally I think it’s best to have a child who is able to grip the “pen” better so I may say closer to a year, but if you want your baby to start hearing and recognizing sounds and pictures of animals you could always click the images for them too. Great for multiple children especially and encourages sharing.

I love that it’s just the right size to include a lot of animals but not take over the entire floor space and easy to store because it’s pretty compact. Definitely a “must purchase” in my summer toys list for sure!! Now, just FYI it retails for $79.99, which to some may seem a little steep. I will tell you in my opinion, this toy is worth it for us, it has a lot of features that the girls’ more expensive handheld games have {minus the screen}.  Get more information on Creative Baby’s website here: http://www.creativebabyinc.com/our-products/

I received a Creative Baby i-Mat in order to play with, er, have my girls play with it and give my honest opinions. All opinions expressed in this post are my own, yours may vary, although this is a pretty rockin’ toy, so maybe not.
