This is both a play mat and a bag. Spread it out on the floor or on the grass in the garden for your little one to play on: then when it’s clearing up time, you just pull the straps together and everything is drawn up into the bag. Hang it on a hook or over the door until the next day. It is reversible, so you can choose which way up. Take it anywhere for an easy to use play mat. Like everything at Bumble & Ava, this bag/mat is washable.
