A marble maze, and an eye spy toy are included. There are inner flaps that zip together as well as two flaps that close with hook and loop tape. There is a button and buttonhole section, two different lacing sections and a buckle. Best of all, the entire mat folds up and has a handle to make it portable. There is an inner pocket for storing chalk or additional toys. This is a sewing pattern that you can download. Pattern pieces are given as well as cutting dimensions for all pieces. There is no limit to how much you can add to this mat. If you are an occupational therapist, you could add additional buckles, hooks and eyes, ties, etc.
