It is big and beautiful, we really like it.
It’s great quality and is super thick so I’m not overly concerned about my kids snapping it in half. I bought this to use with our perpetual calendar, but I miscalculated and it’s too big for the shelf we’re using. But my kids have found plenty of other use for it. In the fall I’ll most likely use it set up a fall themed play space with our autumn grapat set. I would definitely recommend this and am now thinking about getting the plain platform too.
