The item was received in a timely manner. I've read SO many reviews on this particular brand of play mat cause I feel like $45 is a lot to spend on a flattened stuffed animal. Well, like some others have mentioned, the body of the animal (in my case the bear) is quite thinly cushioned but the rest of it is quite fluffy. The material itself is very soft, be sure to wash it on delicate and allow it to air dry. I dried mine on delicate and somehow parts of the bear's fur got singed so it isn't as soft anymore :(
Overall, it's held up pretty well. Baby and I use it everyday for tummy time and it cushions her belly and head when it falls. She also likes to nap on it.
Best UsesTummy time, nap time, diaper changing.
