Based on other reviews we went with the 1 inch mat. Even the 1 inch is pretty thin. I would definitely NOT go with the 5/8 inch. Kids use them for daycare and seems to work well.

Veey happy with this purchase

No tears on the sides! This mat has reinforced seams on the edges to prevent tears. Purchased this for my daughter at daycare. No worries regarding tearing at the seams. Daycare will make you replace if so. Body pillow cases fit tbis mat perfectly as well. Veey happy with this purchase

Always a great value!

Purchased this for my preschooler. The local store didn't carry the 1 inch with binding version, only the thinner one. I learned my lesson as the thinner one didn't last a semester; it ripped at the seams and exposed the foam. The 1 inch version has the gray binding and it seems to be durable. It's also thicker so my little one can rest easier. The wife previously sewn a cover for the thinner one and it didn't fit (obviously since it's thicker), so she had to make a larger cover for the 1 inch mat.

Happy buyer

All the stores were sold out and this is exactly what we needed at a great price. Easy more cushiony from the one that I used to have when I was a kid. He's going to live his big boy matt for kindergarten!

Great product great service

As described. Read measurements before buying.

SydK - | 8/16/2019 12:00:00 am

Be sure to look at the measurements. This is a much smaller Kender Matt then I have purchased in the past. However, the product description is accurate on the size, I just did not realize that it was smaller than average. It works great for my 18 month old but I don’t see it being usable for anyone over 2. I am giving four stars because it is not a true Kender Matt when it comes to children in kindergarten, or the other sizes that are typical for a Kender Matt

What I needed for preschool

I ordered 2 of these, 1 at a time. I did this in order to determine if the quality was good for the first one. I hate wasting money on things that I would have to replace soon enough because of it falling apart. These are made well and will be perfect for my rough and tumble boys. :)

We just recently reordered more of them to replace another brand that had torn. Recommend the stitched version, heat sealed comes apart easier.

The binding is worth the few extra dollars

I’ve worked in daycares for quite a few years. I’ve seen and had to deal with lots of mats. The roll up ones with the blanket attached are the worst. They’re way too thin and the blanket is never enough or just doesn’t work with squirming kids. In my opinion the 1 inch is perfect. The thicker ones are a little more comfy but they’re just a real hassle to deal with. What it really comes down to is the bedding you put on it. If you have something too tight it makes for having to yank and tug to really get the mat out which then leads to damaging it. If you use the thicker one this is always the case. The one inch mats are perfect for either using a crib sheet or a king size pillow case cover. The binding is reeeeally worth the few extra dollars. Walmart always carries the ones without binding for $10 around the time that school starts and those never last long.

Comes as described

I wish I was better with dimensions. It comes as displayed it was more narrow than I anticipated. My transaction was pretty straight forward. Would use the website again

This is great. My son has been using this and he sleeps well on it during his nap time at daycare. Well put together. Still intact.

The usual daycare mat

Lakshmi - | 3/1/2020 12:00:00 am

It has good build quality and looks like the normal daycare kindermat , i feel the spacing between the cushions are a little to wide.

High Quality

Kenneth Rose - | 5/16/2020 12:00:00 am

My order came on time. And I am very happy with my kinder mats. I purchased the mats that have sown binding and they are very nice. Thank you!
