Lightweight Wrestling Mats As An Alternative To Softwood Flooring?

Posted on: March 22nd, 2013 by

Lightweight Wrestling Mats For The Home!I don’t like getting older, but who does? Lately it’s become very apparent that I’m transitioning into an actual adult and it really frightens me. I know we are technically ‘adults’ when we turn 18, but I think we really become adults during certain events.  For the most part my life hasn’t changed in years, I thought I was an adult when I moved into my own place- but since then I’ve had the same friends, job and done the same things almost every day.  Lately little things are changing- Birthday celebration at a bar or club are turning into brunches. I’m being invited to baby showers, weddings and house warming parties and my friends and I are even planning a trip to Mexico as a last hurrah.

I get more calls to babysit on a Friday night than I do to go out, it’s really depressing.  Furthermore, I recently applied to go back to school and found that I’m so old, my parents income is no longer a factor when it comes to loans.  There’s just too much to think about and not enough time to do anything!

I was asked to babysit last minute a few days ago and normally it’s no problem! I have a play carpet,  soft wood tiles, some toys and lots of Disney movies- so I’m always prepared.  But just like us adults, sometimes we need an upgrade. It might be time to start looking at other softwood flooring alternatives for my house. The soft wood flooring is ideal as trade show flooring, but I’m thinking our lightweight wrestling mats will be a good alternative as the kids get older.  The smaller sizes come in one piece and with slotted backing, can be rolled up and stored easier than the tiles. Also, since this mat is intended for wrestling, the foam is more dense and the surface is a lot more durable. Not to mention it can be made with microban protection, so all those little germies we’re concerned about won’t be a problem.


Carpted Floor Mats Make Learning More Fun!

Kids area rugs make are an excellent play mat!There were few things that excited me as much, when I was a child, as cars and trains. Perhaps it was the details of train sets and matchbox cars, or the novelty of large machinery that I had no idea how it worked.  Moreover, how it could be scaled down for me to interact with rearrange and play with how I saw fit.  Kids area rugs would have made all the difference and I would have been learning too!

My main peeve was always that there was no universal play set carpeted floor mats of sorts, that would really engulf and put me in a zone. I was lucky enough to have a fairly large train set, however, I do remember the train set not being conducive to the epic car chases in my head (since it was all very scaled and as my dad described not a toy).

Heroic cops vs robbers or just a plain busy day of construction was pretty much always on tile or plain carpet. I know that if I had kids play mats to play on it would have been so much cooler.  That’s why one of the products I know I would’ve loved as a kid (especially as a Christmas gift) is our transportation and construction themed play carpet. The details are awesome! It is perfect when playing with toy cars, planes, trains, and even boats. Let your kids imagination run wild with a simple yet effective alternative to a full blown expensive play set.

Play carpet or carpeted floor mats are excellent for day care centers, schools or home use. The quality of the kids play rugs as well as the large selection of colors, sizes and themes to choose from make it easy to find the perfect interactive educational rugs that will no doubt make learning fun! So, look at any of our many kids play carpets and I’m sure you and your child will find a carpet that will enhance their enjoyment!
