Have You Heard of the Monkey Mat?

Monkey Mat, AS SEEN ON SHARK TANK, allows you to make your space, any place! Originally inspired by an unexpected six-hour layover at the airport (constant cringing while two babies crawled all over dirty floors!), and also by overall active lifestyles, this go-everywhere large mat in attached ultra-compact pouch gives you a clean space on the go – no more bulky blankets! Perfect for all ages, all places – park, beach, concerts, dirty airport/hotel floors, camping, hiking, sports events & more!

I received my package in the mail today and love it!  It will be easy to carry around with us and spreads out really quickly.  I got a pack of stakes with it, just in case I needed to secure it to the ground.  It was also really simple to put back into the bag, when I finished using it.

The quality is amazing and it would be perfect for Mom’s going to the park, the beach or just wanting something to put down at home.  It would be great to use when a child is playing with building blocks.  You could just pick it up and pour them back in their container really easy.

There are so many great uses that I can think of for the Monkey Mat.  This would be the perfect gift for Mom’s or Dad’s of toddlers, young kids, or even the ones I see that have their dogs in a stroller, might want this for when they go to the park!

Here are some photos of the package I received:monkey mat

It was really easy to secure on the grass:

I also loved that it had a “handle” to easily attach to a stroller, your purse or any other place you want to store it:

The Monkey Mat will be perfect for spending time outside – especially for me, being allergic to the grass.  I love it and think it’s a great thing for every parent, babysitter, or student to have in their bag.  Thanks to #USFG and #MonkeyMat for letting me try it out!

About The Monkey Mat:

monkey matDirty airport floors. Two beautiful baby girls. Six hour layover. *CRINGE!*

A desperate desire arose for either a constant shower of sanitizer…or a portable, clean surface I could take EVERYwhere.

Not a bulky blanket (who has room?), or something I had to plan for in advance to have with me (I am just NOT that organized!!).

I soon realized I also wanted such a solution for hotel floors. Soccer games. Spontaneous picnics. Local festivals. Sit-ups at the park (where Fido just was, * CRINGE * again).

I mentioned my frustration to my dear friend and now business partner, Courtney, and though she didn’t even have kids at the time, she wanted such monkey mata solution for her active lifestyle… Outdoor concerts. Wine tastings. Camping. Hiking. The desired uses were endless.


We searched for a portable, clean surface to meet our needs, and when (shockingly!) nothing existed, we decided to create it.

The brainstorming and prototyping began…hot glue guns and staplers galore…

And so the Monkey Mat ® was born!

There is NOTHING that provides the portability, versatility, and functionality with style like the Monkey Mat®.

Whether for life in full swing or just monkeying around, the Monkey Mat is the perfect solution to protect from any questionably clean floor, in or outdoors – EVERYwhere you explore.

We wish you many happy Monkey Mat® moments!

About The Creators:

monkey matThe Entrepreneurs behind the Monkey Mat is Best Friends Courtney Turich and Christie Barany, who came to Shark Tank with quite the story how this thriving business first began. The Monkey Mat Business recently launched in June 2012, but it was after a 10 year friendship that ultimately led them to this point. How else do you meet your new best friend and future business partner without making a memorable impression? We’ll Courtney did just that when she spilled red wine all over Christie’s brand new white shirt. Yes, I do believe that will make an impression every time. As fate would have it, that glass of wine would change the lives of both of them forever, and ultimately land them on the Best Business Reality Show in History, the Shark Tank.

I have not heard of the Monkey Mat! I love that it’s small enough to keep in the car with no issues.

I could have used this on a recent trip to Tallahassee. I love the trendy look of the pouch and I like that it is machine washable.

This is really needed in our day and age. I love that it folds to compact size so that it can be taken with you where ever you happen to be going.
