Review & Giveaway: Creative Baby i-Mat Makes Learning Fun



Disclaimer:  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.





Mommy and I were recently given the chance to review an amazing product. I love playing with electronic and interactive products and this combined both of them together making for all day fun. There is nothing better than learning and having fun along the way. Babies have been getting more into electronics and Creative Baby is there to help us with fun and engaging activities. Let me introduce you to the i-Mat My Animal World from Creative Baby

The Creative Baby i-Mat is totally interactive and lots of fun for your little ones. I had a blast trying it out and learning along the way. The mat itself is fairly large measuring 47.25" x 47.25" x 0.4". There is enough space on there for two to play fairly well. 



  • Durable & Spill Proof
  • Light weight, great for indoor or outdoor use
  • Teaches 3 Languages in English, Spanish, and Mandarin Chinese
  • Basic and Advanced Games
  • Real Animal Sounds and Music
  • Teaches Vocabulary and Comprehension
  • Voice Recorder to Capture the Special Moments
  • 2 GB built-in memory Voice Pen™
  • USB port with future expansion capability
  • Comes in carrying box for easy travel

$79.99 - Recommended age: 18m+
The i-Mat's secret is the 2 GB memory of the Voice Pen. Sold as a set, the foamy pad and pen together retail for $79.99. For a limited time, Creative Baby offers free shipping for all pre-orders. Two more themed adventures -- i-Mat My Alphabet and i-Mat Under The Sea -- are planned for Fall 2013. As new pads are introduced, parents can connect the Voice Pen to any computer with internet access (with the included USB cable), download the new sound file from Creative Baby's website to the i-Mat Voice Pen.  Then, explore new i-Mat adventures! New pads will be priced from $24.99 to $29.99.


The i-Mat's is very easy to use and as you can see can all be done from the mat itself by touching the i-Mat's pen to whatever you want. There's on/off along with volume control which parents will be happy is included. I have been playing for hours on end because its so much fun so mommy is happy that the volume button was included. I like it as loud as it can be but mommy prefers it turned down. There is also a language selection although for now there's only English, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. There are also two different games modes included which can be used based on the age of your little one. 

I having been using my Creative Baby i-Mat to learn the different animals and the sounds they make. There are four different parts of the world and I get to learn what animals live in each of that part of the world. There is the desert, animals you can find on the farm, animals in the water and animals in the forest. One of the game asks me to find the animal that says certain sounds or I can find the animal they ask me to find. Mommy did a little video where you can see it for yourself. The illustrations are beautifully done and the colors are so vivid. Mommy's photos don't do them justice at all. 



If you're looking for something for your little one to enhance their play and learning then the Creative Baby i-Mat is the way to go. Another great thing about the Creative Baby i-Mat is that it can totally be used without the pen for those parents who would prefer to teach that way but the pen just enhances it. It is perfect for even your newborn baby since the mat itself is phthalate-, lead- and heavy metal-free, an no electronics mean wiping the mat clean is worry free. 



As promised here is that video that mommy did. I have learned so much since using the Creative Baby i-Mat and I know that your little one will too.

  11. Oh that is awesome. I like how easy it is to clean. My kids always got their play mats so filthy!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Modern technology just amazes me! This would have blown my mind if it existed when I was a kid..although I would not have been able to wrap my head around it.
    I love play mats. I love cleanable ones even better!

    ReplyDelete
  13. What fun! I would love to win this interactive play mat for my 18 month old daughter, Serenity. She loves animals, and would LOVE this learning toy!

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is awesome! My daughter would spend hours on this mat! I would definitely want one for her!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am all for toys that encourage learning as there is too much mindless entertainment out there. So when you have something like this that would look fun for the kiddos and be educational? Absolutely interested! I'd be entering this for my son!

    ReplyDelete
  16. What kid wouldn't have fun with that? I can definitely see my kids fighting over mat space. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. looks quite interesting. i think this has some potential advantages, but i'm a bit skeptical of a kiddo under 12 months (baby) needing technology

    ReplyDelete
  18. This is really quite innovative and I think would be so much fun for the little ones. I love how interactive it is and your video showed how clear the sound is and easy to hear.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like that kids can really get on there and up close and there are so many animals to play with. Also the language option is fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  20. That is such a neat idea. While my kids are out of the age range, I have to buy for a little boy that will love this. Anything that promotes fun learning is a good thing.

    ReplyDelete

  26. I am entering to win this mat for my daughter Kiley. I have been looking for a mat to put down on the floor and absolutely love this one. It is educational and dual functional. She can learn while being comfortable and can learn as she grow without even knowing it. I also like how colorful it is and they did their very best to cover every corner with something.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is going on our Christmas list for sure! My son would love this! Going to try and get a grandparent to buy it haha. I absolutely love the videos that you include because it shows you how it will really work for your family. You get a REAL look at it as opposed to a marketing tool. Plus Madison is so cute to look at!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh also, to make sure I fully followed the entry rules of the giveaway, what I love about the mat the most is the games. Great way to learn!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I love this but my little grand daughter at 3 is destructive. Her mommy thinks it is funny and has taught it to her. So I don't buy anything expensive. Makes me kind of mad and sad at the same time. This is a really cool product.

    ReplyDelete
  30. That is so cute and what a great way to have some special bonding time while they are learning.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the idea and that the pen will be able to connect to future mats, as well. It seems a little pricey, but I haven't priced other mats like that, so maybe it's right in line...I'm intrigued and glad to know it will fit two kids since I have 1-yr-old twins who are always playing together.

    ReplyDelete

  44. I'm entering for my 2 year old son, JW. I think it's super neat that it has a pen that helps him learn how to read and all that! I love that it's in a large mat form! We have a big mat that he plays with that has car tracks on it, so I know how much he loves lying down on his stomach and playing so I think that this mat would be a HUGE hit for him and mommy always loves when it's educational! Thank you SO much!
