Monkey Mat Review - As seen on Shark Tank

Monkey Mat was provided for review. All opinions are my own. 

I recently received a Monkey Mat to try out. The first thing I noticed was how small it folded up. I like how it all zips into it's own pouch nice and small. No separate pouch to lose. It also has a carrying strap you can attach to any diaper bag, stroller, etc. 

It's moisture resistant,  but I don't think it would keep moisture out from really wet grounds.  It's a really thin nylon that's a little slick.  This is why it folds so well and small. You can buy stakes to keep it in place outdoors. 

I originally bought it to put on our living room carpet inside our twins' new playpen. They are still in the spit up stage, but like to roll all over to play.  I need something on the floor that's easy to wash when they spit up everywhere.  It opens up to 5' by 5' so it wasn't quite bug enough for what I wanted. It's really not big enough for our family of 6. I'd need at least 2 of them. The loops for the stakes do help secure it under our playpen (around the suction cups).  I may try it again with the playpen for when they can push it and see if the loops keep the playpen in one place. 

Overall it's nice. The compact fold is the best part.   It's lightweight and fits easily in a diaper bag, purse, pocket,  etc. It will always be easier than dragging a big oversized blanket.

Label Daddy Labels Review and 25% off

This is the 2nd time I've gotten Label Daddy labels. I love them.  It's so easy to stick a label on clothing items than to write on everything with sharpies.

I have twins that just started daycare and needed to label everything. For clothing labels with both their names on them which is awesome. Their names are pretty short though.

I've been selling all our baby stuff when done with them.  I can easily pull off the labels when passing the clothes along instead of needing to cut tags out our cross out names.

I've only had this set a couple weeks,  but my last set for my older kids lasted well. They aren't permanent stickers, but stayed on through at least 15-30 washes. 

Update: I found 3 of my labels stuck to the inside of my washing machine.  I'm not sure if this happened in a regular load or if my husband used the steam load.  Just an FYI if you have a steam option.  These may not be the best for that type of wash.
