Wildkin Nap Mats: Make Children's Naptime Special

Wildkin Nap Mats

Anyone who has a child knows—or will soon know—the unique struggles of children's nap time. Despite how badly they need to take one, children are never quite ready. There is always something better to do or something that isn’t quite right. Besides making a routine and sticking to it, what can you do to make naptime easier for your little boy or girl? 

One of the best ways to get an independent toddler to do anything they are reluctant to do is make it special. This can be done by adding something memorable to the routine—such as a favorite song—or a cherished item—such as a special nap mat. 

In fact, a nap mat can be a great idea if your kids usually take their naps in their bed. Since they associate that with bedtime, they might be reluctant to sleep there during the day. A nap mat can change the whole game for them. 

Wildkin nap mats are some of the coolest nap mats you can buy. It is impossible to not be enthusiastic about nap time when you have one of these. Their entire selection is just so fun and playful, it is hard to pick just one. There are many different prints to choose from, guaranteeing you will find one perfect for the little person in your life.

However, it isn’t just the awesome themes that make Wildkin nap mats so special—these mats are super comfy, durable, and portable. Each mat comes with a built-in pillow, making naptime easier—no slipping and sliding off the pillow or the pillow ending up on the floor instead of the mat. The mat itself is soft to lay on and isn’t too thick to make it difficult to transport. The entire mat rolls up into the size and shape of a small duffel bag, even coming with a handle for easy carrying.

Wildkin nap mats are perfect for any little one, but are especially suited to preschool aged children. There are also matching backpacks, lunchboxes, and other accessories available to perfectly match your chosen nap mat. How special will your little girl or boy feel walking into school with the entire matching set?

So, what are some of the design choices these special mats come in? One that will please the little princess in your life is the Princess Nap Mat. Perfect in purple, this mat is girly and fun. The print is demure enough that it feels completely removed from the typical princess items you tend to see online and in stores but is still playful enough to delight your little one.

For the child who can’t get enough planes, trains, and automobiles, Wildkin has the perfect choice: Olive Kids Trains, Planes, and Trucks Nap Mat. When snuggled up on this mat, he will chug off to dreamland conducting his favorite choo choo or soaring in his favorite plane. This is one traffic jam you will love.

Does your little girl dream of one day becoming an equestrian? If so, she will absolutely adore Wildkin’s Horses in Pink Nap Mat with the herd of wild horses galloping across the light pink background.

Pint-sized paleontologists will really dig the Wildkin Dino-mite Nap Mat. Its adorable dinosaur pattern features T-Rex, Stegosauruses, Pterodactyls, Brachiosauruses, Triceratops and Hadrosaurs roaming along the prehistoric background.

No matter which nap mat you choose, you are certain to have one which will make everyone happy and last for years.  All Wildkin Nap Mats are safe—passing the required flammability tests—and comfy for your little one.

Wildkin Backpacks—Go Back to School in Style

Wildkin Backpacks

There is no back to school accessory more important to a young student than their back pack. It is so much more than just an item to transport their books and supplies—it is a statement about who they are and what they love. No child wants a plain, boring backpack, nor do they want the same backpack five other kids in their class will have. Young students want something cool, unique, and 100% them.

Wildkin offers plenty of backpacks that fit the bill, sure to please all kids who receive them. Not to mention that they are sturdy and designed with organization in mind, pleasing the parents as well. So, what are some options for the boys and girls in your life?

The Wildkin Sidekick Backpack comes in a wide variety of patterns so you are certain to find one to please the student in your life. Designed to fit kids as young as three years of age and as old as eight, this durable backpack will grow with the child. The design is traditional, looking like backpacks that high school children would use, so it is certain to inspire pride in your little one when he or she wears it and feels all grown up.

If you are looking for a design that provides a bit more visual interest, the Wildkin Echo Backpack offers a unique look. Available in fun, eye-catching patterns, what really sets this backpack apart from the rest is the reflective stripe going down the front, giving the pack visual interest and adding a safety element when used at nighttime. These backpacks work for children aged 7 to 15 years old. 

The Wildkin Comfortpack Backpack offers the same traditional look as the Sidekick, but comes with additional padding to help keep little backs, necks, and shoulders comfortable while hauling around books. With the variety of patterns one expects from Wildkin Backpacks, there is a pack to suit the style of every child. As this pack is meant to carry a heavier load, it is designed to fit older students with more items to carry and is suitable for children aged 8 and up.

Finally, there is the Wildkin BOGO Backpack. This pack is a two in one design, including a backpack and a lunch box. The lunch box is insulated to keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold and comes in the same pattern as the backpack itself. Even better, the lunch box is designed to attach to the outside of the backpack, which means you do not need to sacrifice storage space just to pack a healthy lunch. This backpack is great from kindergarten to high school, fitting children aged 6 through 15. 

School is just around the corner. You do not want to get caught by surprise—or your child caught without a unique and stylish backpack for going back to school. Check out our selection of Wildkin Backpacks and find the one that is best for your child.
