This play mat is much better then the others I have used for my kids. The boppy pillow makes it much better for baby. It keeps the baby in position on their back or tummy which is nice if you don't want them rolling away. It has bright colors for visual stimulation which is great. You can add or remove the toys on it and the ones included are fun for the kids to play with. My youngest used this a lot and dodmt tire of it like my daughter's did with the non boppy brand play mats. I think they are more comfortable on this one and are willing to spend more time on it because of this. I recommend this very highly and I would never go back to the play mats that don't have the boppy.
