I was recently contacted by the lovely Jessica of Elektrabub to see if I’d be interested in reviewing the Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat, a product she is very proud of and one she uses daily herself. I hadn’t come across it before but as soon as I checked it out on the Elektrabub website and saw what it was, I responded with a big fat yes!
The Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat was designed by a mum with the busy parent in mind. It is a 3-in-1 sleeping unit that is perfect for children in daycare/nursery, for sleepovers and for naps anytime, anywhere, making it perfect for travelling too.
The Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat has a really useful all-in-one design with carry handles and buckles which make it really easy to roll, clip and carry. It is quilted with a comfy mat, soft luxurious pillow and a lovely soft blanket all in one handy, portable pack. The pillow is a high quality pillow, which I can vouch for, and can be gentle machine washed alongside the mat itself. The outer quality polyester fabric is used to give it durability and stain resistance, handy for when toddlers are dragging it around with them, and the inner fabric of the blanket is 100% cotton making it lovely and soft, perfect for napping toddlers. It also comes in two designs: blue dinosaurs or pink teddy bears, and we received the blue dinosaurs design.
The mat measures 52 x 112 cm and can be used from birth to 5 years of age, although I would say this is more suited to children over 1 years of age. The pillow really is high quality and even made me feel sleepy when I put my head on it while BattleKid and I were road testing it!
Although BattleKid hasn’t napped in the Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat, it came in really useful two weeks ago when he was ill. It helped to keep him quiet and rested on our couch, and so is perfect for helping rest poorly toddlers!
I really like the design of this Nap Mat. It is very well thought out, cleverly designed and rolls back up really easily making it truly portable. The dinosaur design is lovely and the inner fabric of the blanket really is lovely and soft, making it a really comfortable place for a napping toddler or child. It can even be personalised with your child’s name if you plan on them taking it to daycare/nursery or for sleepovers, which is a lovely added little touch.
What I love about the Elektra Cloud9 Daycare/Travel Nap Mat:
- Great design.
- Easy to fold out and back up.
- Great buckles and carry handles making it truly portable.
- Soft inner 100% cotton blanket and high quality, removable pillow make it perfect for a napping toddler (or mum).
- Outer polyester material make it durable and easily to keep clean.
- Machine washable.
- Two great designs to choose from.
- Can be used up to the age of 5.
What I don’t like about the Elektra Cloud9 Daycare/Travel Nap Mat:
As I’ve said already I really like the Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat. BattleKid has taken to resting in it while poorly and often asks for it to be rolled out for him to lie in while watching his favourite TV programmes. I am planning on taking it to our friends house this Christmas Day for him to nap in after Christmas dinner. I can see this becoming a firm favourite of his in the years to come, especially for chilling out in while watching TV in the living room. No doubt he will soon be nodding off in it too! It really is a great product and one I’m really happy to have had the opportunity to receive and review.
As I said at the start of this post, I had never come across anything like this before Jessica contacted me. I’ve since only seen something very similar on Amazon but that design does not have a high quality pillow, nor is the inner blanket of that one made of 100% cotton. Therefore, I think the Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat is of a higher quality than the other one I’ve seen available. It normally retails for £43.33 but is currently on sale on the Elektrabub website for £24.06 (at the time of writing this review), with shipping costs of just £2.41.
So if you are thinking about investing in a portable nap mat, you will not go wrong with the Elektra Cloud9 Daycare/Travel Nap Mat. BattleKid and I highly recommend it!
