being MVP: Creative Baby - I-Mat: My Animal World & Giveaway!

Creative Baby - I-Mat: My Animal World & Giveaway!


I have gushed many times about how I love educational toys - especially ones that capture my attention as well as Kenzie's. Creative Baby sent us the I-Mat for review and both kiddos are huge fans. 


From the onset, it looks like a colorful foam mat that you use to keep little noggins safe from hard floors. However, cleverly disguised within the Creative Baby I-Mat are sounds, words and music that is activated by using the Voice Pen. When we first connected the four pieces of the mat, Kenzie immediately rattled off the names of most of the animals. Yes, I was surprised that she even knew the beaver! I borrowed the AAA batteries from the TV remote control and we were ready to learn. 


I showed Kenzie how to turn on the pen and point it at the USA flag for the sound to come out in English. The I-Mat can also be used in Spanish and Chinese as well. She had a blast pointing the pen to each animal and Mason enjoyed dancing to the funky music. It's great that she is learning and teaching Mason along the way. Although Mason is only 13 months, he is learning by repetition and even knows to hang the pen on Kenzie's playhouse door knob. I think in a few months he will be able to identify the animals much better than now. What do you think?  


The I-Mat is easily wiped down and durable - a must have for when you have little ones. I also like that you can break it down to 4 pieces for easy storage or transport to grandma's. Moreover, each piece of the mat works when separated - yes it does not have to be fully connected to have loads of fun. I wonder if I had two pens, both my kiddos can simultaneously use? My mother in law was amazed by the I-Mat and Kenzie showing her the capabilities that we may have to purchase an additional one for her home. Kenzie gets all silly when music comes on after the animal word. Check out her goof ball antics.


There are also two game modes: 1) name of animal is given and your child has to identify and point until correct and 2) sound of animal is given and your child has to identify and point until correct. Kenzie is pretty good at identifying and when incorrect, she searches for the correct animal. This is pretty fun for your child as they get each correct and gives parents a wee bit of down time as well :) 


Creative Baby has just released the Under the Sea I-Mat which can be used with the Voice Pen (just download the new sound file using the included USB cord). What's neat about these mats is that they can all most likely connect together and create a giant play area - these pieces can integrate into our current mat (if we had the floor space to accommodate, that is). This is definitely on Kenzie's holiday wish list as well as the anticipated My Alphabet Mat.  

Buy It:  You can purchase the I-Mat My Animal World Set for $79.99.
