The design on the mat is charming. The colors are bright and cheerful. However, the problem was the way it was packaged for shipping. It was not in a box or even rolled - it was 'wadded' and then shipped in just a clear plastic cover. When it arrived, it had creases that will not come out and one edge is curled and refuses to lie flat. It does not appear to be as high quality as other mats I own - lighter weight. At the same time, I ordered another mat from a different supplier. It was shipped flat and arrived in perfect condition. I would probably purchase this mat again if I were able to buy it in a store.
