Busy Baby Mat: There are lots of babies and toddlers home from daycare right now and lots of moms and dads telecommuting for the first time. The Busy Baby Mat is a brilliant way to keep baby entertained. The Busy Baby Mat keeps babies and toddlers entertained by staying put wherever you place it and keeps all the toys in place with silicone tethers eliminating that oh-so fun game of the “toddler toss”… when babies throw toys on the floor expecting you to pick them up endlessly. Plus washable markers can be attached for coloring and it will rinse right off in the dishwasher or with a wet cloth creating hours of doodling fun! The best part is the Busy Baby Mat is the perfect way to keep babies entertained and germ-free once life resumes and parents are shopping and eating out at restaurants again.
