Bought this in the medium size for my 7 yo daughters birthday and she was thrilled. It is perfect for practicing her backbends and aiding her in the back walkovers she needs to perfect for dance. The mat is sturdy and firm, but still provides cushion for all the "misses". It is easy enough to carry that I can store it in the workout room, but bring it upstairs if she wants to use it with friends for a longer play time. The price on Amazon was definitely the best I found after shopping around for a few weeks.
Mat is well made and firm. My 11 year old granddaughter uses it for tumbling/ gymnastics.
Sorry purchased for my Granddaughter. She’s into tumbling and school cheer competition and she loves it.
It's pretty soft, but not too soft where I feel that it would wreck easily. I use it for tumbling and it has worked nicely
