Testing The WaterMat

May 2015 Product Roy Sparks

Billed as the most fun and affordable, multi-person water toy on the market today, the original WaterMat is a kid magnet. Children can’t resist the chance to “walk on water” and every time my family uses it there’s at least one adult whom we don’t know, who sneaks his way on.

All WaterMats are designed to be fun, safe and hassle-free so that owners can enjoy their weekend with the family. You simply roll it out on the water and in seconds it’s being used. Because it requires no inflation, no assembly, no ladder and it has no sharp edges, it really is the simplest water toy around.  

When unrolled, the 1 1/4-inch thick WaterMat is 6 by 18 feet long and weights around 30 pounds. The total weight capacity is an amazing 1,200 pounds, which is why it’s so much fun for group outings.  At $799 it’s a little more than you might pay for a water toy, but considering how much fun you’ll have with it (and how many people can use it at once), this just might become a must-have for your family.
