Eric Carle Hungry Caterpillar Foam Play Mat & a Giveaway


This is a sponsored post, however all opinions are my own. 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar has become worn and tattered.  It has weathered the youth of three feisty book-loving boys. I have distinct memories of each of them sitting on my lap as we read this much-loved book. Undoubtedly their favorite part was to pretend to gobble up the food the caterpillar was eating, especially all the goodies, of course. 

Inspired by The Very Hungry Caterpillar and the works of Eric Carle, The World of Eric Carle, is a line of toys, games, puzzles and more. We received the Hungry Caterpillar Foam Play Mat to check out. This brightly colored puzzle play mat is made up of twenty interchangeable foam pieces. 

Mixing and matching the pieces allow children to discover how the building system works while strengthening hand-eye coordination, basic animal and color recognition as well as spatial awareness. 

This product is phthalate-free, BPA-free, lead-free, latex-free, and formaldehyde-free and come in a nicely packaged cube case. 

My youngest son had a fun time punching out the center circle and then assembling it all together, with his trusty labradoodle Dougie by his side, of course. 

Even if you don’t need a play mat for your space, I tend to see this product as more of a giant interactive puzzle.  The mat is a good fit for a variety of ages, but I think toddlers and preschoolers would really love it best. I wish I would have had this when my guys were that age. I know they would have had a blast finding the caterpillar and figuring out how the pieces go together!

One lucky Mama Report reader will win a World of Eric Carle Animal Foam Tiles Puzzle Floor Play Mat of their own!
