But in all seriousness, not all teaching tools are created equal and there are plenty of options out
there that are manufactured with dangerous chemicals that you would not want your child spending
hours per day on.
Think about it, kids like to put everything in their mouths, and these accessories are, likely, no
exception. Chances are they will lick it, try to eat it, and roll their face all over it. You want
to make sure it’s safe.
All of our accessory mats are 100% non-toxic and safe for your kiddos. Additionally, each tool is
specifically designed to safely help young gymnasts achieve a specific skill. And they are filled
with soft foam for extra cushion and comfort.
Okay, so, chances are, your little ones are going to spend a lot of time with these accessories, and
maybe their friends and classmates will too.
We know that kids are more susceptible to catching germs and sickness. And we also know that,
sometimes, with the little ones, lots of drool and more can often make an appearance in their play
area. Let me just tell you, you do not anything that absorbs liquid.
Our accessory mats have a foam base with an outer vinyl layer that is super easy to clean, which
means dirty little fingers are no big deal – you can easily wipe them down and sanitize
them to keep everyone healthy.
The truth is, you may not have any preference whether your accessory mat is solid black or vibrant
colors, but kids do. They love fun pops of bright colors.
You want your little one to enjoy their time on learning so it’s great to give them something they
will be naturally drawn to.
As much as we wish there was one tool that could work for every movement, it just ain’t
so. And for good reason – can you imagine trying to practice your cartwheels over a bulky octagon mat?
Each of these tools is designed to assist in certain gymnastics movements. Take a look and see which one
is best for you.
These mats come in 14”, 15” and 16” high. They are a great tool for learning forward rolls,
front walkovers and more.
If you have a little one in gymnastics, they’re a great add-on to the Folding Mat. They’re great for
practicing skills or technique when you need a little extra support. They also help coaches assist
multiple kids at once.
However, if you just have a kid that likes to play and have fun, and even if they don’t need the mat
for at home practice, I can tell you first hand that kids love this mat. They can play, use it as a
slide down from their toddler bed, play hide and seek behind it, you name it.
If you’re looking for a beginner’s teaching tool or just a mat for fun and games, the Incline Mat is
definitely the way to go.

These mats are great for extra practice at home, or for coaches to use as a teaching tool in the
studio. They give young gymnasts the ability to practice without a constant spotter, allowing more
kids to work at a time and the coach to reach more students.
If you’re looking for an intermediate teaching tool, the Octagon Mats are definitely the way to go.
The dreaded balance beam! No matter how skilled a gymnast you are, everyone gets butterflies in
their stomach when they first step on the balance beam. It is probably the scariest and most
mentally challenging part of gymnastics.
Our foam Balance Beams are the perfect beginner training tool. Before they get up to the high
beam, they can begin practicing on this approachable, low-to-the-ground foam beam. This way, when
falls happen (because, when it comes to the balance beam, falls always happen), they’re only 2.5”
off the ground.
For extra safety protection, place the foam Balance Beam on your Folding Mat so your little ones can
fall safely to a soft surface, encouraging them to push themselves more and gain confidence.
