Review of Roll-Up Bizzy Mats


2c72ef4389328b9620617619d483c6bb.jpgWhen two Roll-Up Bizzy Mats arrived in the post I instantly knew my two girls, aged 6 years and 4 years, would love them, and not just because they were their favourite colours-blue and pink, but because they love to draw, and usually use scraps of paper from the bottom of my handbag or paper table cloths in restaurants!

The Roll-Up Bizzy Mats provides 2 sources of entertainment if you like, on one side you have a wipeable side to draw on using the crayons provided, whilst the other side acts as a colourful placemat to be used at mealtimes.

That evening we were not going out dinner, but the girls wanted to open them straight away, and who am I to argue!? Taken their favourite colour Bizzy Mat, they each opened the boxes and unrolled them to find the hidden crayons. Each had different colours, and for once they happily decided to share! Phew!

The girls used the mats on the table, rolled them out on the lounge floor and laid down whilst drawing and then loved using them as a place mat at dinner time! The placemat is wipe-clean, so great for cleaning up any little spills.

I was surprised at how well the crayons drew on the dry-erase whiteboard; they were bright and vibrant, whilst wiping off, with the cloth provided,  without leaving any marks so the mat was perfectly clean for their next masterpiece! Once finished the girls stored their crayons and cloth 398727476a7912ab61519acf20b06c62.jpgaway in the special pocket and rolled the mat up.

As well as the Roll-Up Bizzy Mats, Keeping Bizzy also has Dry-erase Bizzy Books, a Roll-Up Bizzy Table Runner and a Chalkboard Table Runner - I can't wait to try this in particular - it will definitely entertain my girls and their cousins on Christmas day!

At less than £10 each they are well worth the money-they are durable, fun and not using paper saves trees!
