Ozark Mountain Kids nap mat review

This is a review of Ozark Mountain Kids nap mats - the original sized all in one thick nap mats - and one of our many nap mat reviews.  Click here for a review of their big kid line of nap mats. We started carrying them in 2013 but this American made brand has been manufacturing products in the USA for the last 29 years.  And their nap mats represent fantastic American-made ingenuity.  I think these are the biggest bang for you buck in nap mats, as this guide will show.

Overall size

At 21 inches wide by 45 inches long, these nap mats are middle of the pack in size.  Our nap mat sizing guide shows this brand will last most kids till about age 4-5 which is well into kindergarten age.  That should make it a strong contender as the best kindergarten nap mat for your child.

 

We personalize OMK nap mats in the bottom corner of the blanket.  We have a large selection of fonts and with our preview function, you can see how your name will look before you buy!  You can learn more about our embroidery options here!

Fabric
These nap mats are made from the softest velboa.  You feel compelled to rub it after you touch it.  The blanket has the same soft feel on the outside, but is smooth on the inside, and is about the weight of a single layer of fleece.  This is good for average temperature rooms or warm rooms, but may not be warm enough for cold rooms.

 

How is the nap mat carried?
OMK mats are carried via a thick, soft carry strap.  Our four year old boy carries it on his shoulder with out much effort.

 

Nap mat thickness
Ozark Mountain Kids (OMK) is the thickest nap mat out there we know of.  One other brand of nap mats measures about the same for thickness, but OMK packs in the filling in a way that makes the mat feel like a mattress.  This is perfect for hard floors or children that have a hard time getting comfortable.  The pillow is a built-in thick and soft mound of batting.

If you are looking for bigger OMK nap mats, we have them too!  They have all great features of the original size nap mats, but are simply bigger.  They measure 28 inches wide by 58 inches long and will work for the average height child to age 10-11, and the tallest children till about age 8-9

 

The big nap mats have an active life outside of school.  We see kids using them for camping, travel, sleep overs, and movie nights.

 

They have been very popular!
