elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat: a review

So... doom and gloom aside, it's time for some positive news around these parts!

We transitioned Georgia into a big girl bed a few weeks ago now. I wasn't ready, but she seemed to be - she suddenly had lots of anxiety about being cooped up in the cot, and was always wanting to come into our bed; something that we've never really done before, and didn't plan on doing either.
It was a rocky start, but we got there in then end ... but that's a post for another day. I promise I'll show you her beautiful new room, and also share some things that work for us.
For now though, it ties in beautifully with an awesome new product that I was so excited to trial and test, and to now show my fellow mamas out there in blog-land. The kind folks at Elektra Bub and Tots got in touch with us this week - you might remember their name from last year, when I reviewed the Thermo Pram Organiser!) This time, they are proudly sharing their newest product on the market - the Cloud9 Nap Mat.
How cute are these! We chose the bears for miss G - but I was VERY tempted to get the dinosaurs!

So... what are they exactly? From the website:

The Elektra Cloud9 Daycare / Travel Nap Mat is an 3-in-1 sleeping unit that is perfect for kids in daycare or for sleepovers. It is quilted with a comfy mat, luxurious removable pillow and a soft blanket all in one handy pack that easily rolls into one simple, easy to carry cylinder with plastic buckles and a carry handle so one can quickly roll, clip and carry. The nap mat is designed to make a busy parent's life easier.
When ours arrived, I was impressed at how light it was, yet how thick the material felt. After un-clipping the buckles, it simply rolled out into a bed, complete with a pillow!
As you can see, it didn't take my toddler long to jump on and get comfortable! She loved snuggling up to it and quite quickly tucked herself in underneath the blanket. I love that it's all together; less chance of accidentally leaving things behind.

Key Features include:
  • Outer material is made from 120gsm polyester for easy cleaning and durability 
  • Inner blanket is made from 100% cotton for comfort against children’s skin 
  • Tested against toddlers and washing machines 
  • Soft quilted blanket and mat 
  • Removable, high quality pillow 
  • Convenient carrying handle with buckles
  • Perfect for sleepovers, day care and road trips 
  • Machine washable 
  • Stain resistant 
  • Easy to roll, clip and carry
I can't wait to send this along with her for her day nap, next time she visits her grandparents. She was so keen to jump in, I think it will be a great hit. Would be a great option for daycare, too- I know a lot of centres require you to bring your own, though ours is included. Seriously.. you'd almost think this little miss was actually sleeping, wouldn't you? (All pretend!)

Wow! I would love to take my cloud nine nap mat to nan's house for day sleeps and sleepovers. I can see my mini man tucking his toy dinosaur in so they can both 'sleeb tight'.

As well as sleepovers and holidays, this would be perfect for daycare! No more carting around blankets and sheets, this is far more practical and handy! A PANTE

My son would love this to visit his grand parents! (it also looks like a cool addition to the cubby houses he likes to build)

I'd love to take it camping. It's so hard to find something suitable for toddlers and camping.

Hope big bed is going well.
