Kidzlane Light Up Dance Mat - great gift!

The dance mat has several game options. One option is that the player will need to step onto the buttons as they light up. The buttons will light up quickly, one after another and the player has to quickly tap the light as soon as it turns on.

Benefits

The benefits of this dancing mat are enormous. It is a great tool to improve your child’s self awareness while moving his legs right and left, front and back, and to the center.

It is also very good for coordination since you use both sides of the body when you follow the blinking lights.

It will also improve your child’s memory when choosing the memory game option.

The dance mat is great for eye and foot coordination because you need to use your eyes and feet at the same time.

The dance mat will also improve balance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What age children enjoy the Kidzlane Dance mat?

A: The dance mat is appropriate for children ages 6 and up. Younger children can enjoy it too but if they are too small they might have a hard time reaching all the lights with their leg. The seller recommends the mat for children age 6-14 but I personally know older teenagers and adults that find this as a great exercise tool and fun too!

Q: Can I connect a device to the dance mat so that it can play music that my kids enjoy rather than the built in music

A: You can connect your own device via Bluetooth connection. If you do use your own music be aware that the mat might not light up according the beat of your music whereas when you use the built in music the mat does light up according to the beat.

Q: How many kids can play with the Dance Mat?

A: One child at a time.

 

Q: Is the mat slippery?

A: Most people do not have an issue it but some people reported that on carpet the dance mat was slippery. If you want to use the dance mat on carpet I would recommend you to put a non-slip rug under the dance mat to avoid it from moving.

Q: Any other requirements before I can start using the Dance Mat?

A: The Dance Mat requires 4 AA batteries and you are good to go!

Pros

  • Great entertainment for your kids – will keep them busy for hours
  • Will improve self awareness, balance, coordination, and more
  • Great idea for birthday present or any occasion
  • Encourages exercise in a fun way
  • Does not take up a lot of space
  • Very easy to use – even for young children
  • Adjustable volume

Cons

  • When you hit the wrong light, a voice will tell you that you made a mistake – this can be discouraging for kids in the beginning when they don’t play so well yet.
  • The dance mat does not operate with a AC power cord so the batteries will need to be replaced from time to time.
  • If the dance mat is used on carpet you will need a non-slip rug underneath it to prevent it from slipping.

My Overall Ranking

After researching and using the Dance Mat myself, and after going through with you all the pros and cons I would rate the Kidzlane Dance Mat 4.2.

Why? Because I understand that there are so many ways my child can benefit from the Dance Mat plus the hours of fun in my opinion it’s worth buying it even if it has some cons.

Be assured, if my dance mat ever breaks I would definitely buy another one!

  2. Thank you for your post. It is useful for me. I am think about Christmas gift for grandson. Your suggestion on Kidzland Light UP Dance Mat is perfect one for my grandson.

    I like your description on Benefits. I agree with you that the benefits of the dancing mat are enormous, particularly in the era of corona, kids have less time to perform outdoor activities. Dance in the home can be done anytime, a huge advantage. As you mention, there are so many positive effects and there is no any negative impact on kids. I am definitely going to purchase one for my grandson.

  3. I used to have one of these when I was a kid and it was so much fun! It’s a really good investment and a good idea for my nearly 6-year-old. With all sports closed due to COVID, she’s not getting as much exercise as she probably should. Thanks for the recommendation and for bringing back such good memories of my youth!
