Review of children's mats
Today, in the Russian market, a huge number of types of floor coverings for the improvement of zones for games and children's rooms. Starting from the carpet, with drawings for children, various rugs of puzzles, cheap rugs with "Ali-Express", ending with soft musical rugs, which turn the morning of the day off into the hell of young parents (who in the subject will understand) ...
In this article we will consider several variants of the most common rugs:
The advantage of these mats is the convenience of transportation and storage. Relative cheapness, although by experience, I can say that a normal "puzzle" that has no smell, bright, from quality material - starts from 1000r for 0.8 m2.
The child is interested in tinkering on this rug, collecting and disassembling it.
After such a game bothers the child, the disadvantages for parents will begin ... Time to decompose and fold the "puzzle" will take you much more than just spread out the classic rug. So also wash all the cracks (connections) of the rug periodically required! With frequent assembly and dismantling, the edges of the carpet-puzzle pieces wear out, the pattern is rubbed off.
If you still choose a puzzle carpet, we recommend taking PE material from them, these rugs will be slightly more expensive, but they will last longer, they will be less whimsical, and they will not crumble like cheap analogues.
Many of you have often met this carpet with your friends. Bright, beautiful, familiar ...
Personally, we associate it with the 90th. Has all the disadvantages of carpets of that time. It takes mud and liquids well, you can not do it with a rag. "Vanish" and "Mr. Muscle" to help you. Dust ... Fleecy carpet is the best dust collector you can think of! And dust is an allergy and other delights.
The price of these carpets has a wide range, and the quality of materials, often does not match the price.
Children's rug from websites like "Ali-Express"
Cheap analogue of rugs made from food polyethylene. The complete composition of this rug is known only to the "Chinese" that stands at the machine. Usually the top layer begins to peel off, bubbles appear, which quickly leads to its uselessness. Typically, these rugs are very thin, but because they do not protect from the cold and tear. They do not have quality certificates.
Rugs - the goods are voluminous, therefore the delivery from China will be expensive, and accordingly "will eat" all the savings.
PVC mat (not to be confused with PE)
An excellent option for adult children, thanks to its material sticks to the floor, and will not slide if you go over it. Usually these rugs are 10-12mm thick, falling on it is not so scary as on the floor. Of the disadvantages can be identified very large weight of these rugs and an equally high price.
5) PE mats.
PE is a material that has found its application in the production of Olympic sports coatings, such as judo tatami, sports mats, etc.
Probably the most optimal option, which today can be found on the expanses of the Russian market.
Advantages can be listed long enough, but still: light (weight of the rug from 1 to 2.5 kg), bright, usually bilateral, soft, absolutely odorless, antibacterial, perfectly cut off the cold from the floor, isolate the noise well, in a roll and stored in a case.
Of the shortcomings can be noted quite large size in the folded state (the size of the middle mat in the case 180X20X20cm), not very friendly with the claws of animals (but even if the rug is scratched, it does not "crawl").
When choosing a rug from PE material, you should pay attention to product quality. Like many other popular products, these developing mats are often forged.
Each parent himself determines what is best for his child, but we hope that they helped a little to understand that huge assortment of goods that the market is now flooded with.
