Yogi mats are made with extra thick, non-toxic, closed-cell, TPE foam and they have rounded corners. That's important because we've seen toddlers, babies and kids get hurt just by slipping and falling because there's nothing to grab hold of. The mat also has a dual-texture that helps prevent slippage and adds grip, so they have a better chance of not falling over.

The mat is lightweight and extra wide. The rolled edge, rounded corners and anti-slip texture make the mat very easy to roll up and transport around. In terms of portability, this is very handy.

The material itself doesn't smell and can be washed with mild soap and water to remove any dirt or odors that may become trapped in the material. The only detail that I would change is the Velcro strap. I'm not a fan of Velcro because it may go bad and then the mat becomes useless. It would be a good idea to use some kind of buckle or other method of keeping the material rolled along the edge, but that's just me.
