Product guides and reviews

We have a large selection of kid items like nap mats and backpacks.  We do our best to take great photos of each nap mat and backpack, but just seeing a product picture by itself does not give the best sense of sizes.  So we spend a lot of time taking pictures with different brands together, or with the same child using each product.


This page shows all the product reviews and comparison guides we have!


Our products are safety tested, and often made in the USA

Every few years there is a big news blow up with children's products - lead is found in the paint, melamine is found in the baby formula, flame retardants are found in the nap mats.  Ok, the last one only made the local news.  Nap mats from big box stores/ecommerce sites are more often than not found to contain flame retardants, often ones banned from children's sleepwear decades ago for being known carcinogens.


None of our children's products are treated with any flame retardant, formaldehyde, or polyurethane.


All-in-One nap mat brands

All in one nap mats have build in padding and attached blankets and pillow cases.  There is nothing to get lost!  There are many manufactures of all-in-one nap mats and we only carry brands that have a good value for the money and are durable.  None of our nap mats are treated with flame retardants.  Not all states allow the use of this nap mat style in day care facilities or schools!  Please check the regulations in your state here.

Kindermat/Daydreamer nap mats

Many schools and day care facilities require waterproof sleeping mats - often because of state laws.  It is also a sanitary issue, waterproof mats help prevent potty accidents from making it into the carpet.  Your child generally won't want to sleep directly on a vinyl mat, so we have both basic and all-in-one covers for these mats.
