Talking about some of the most genius inventions in recent years, a special mention should be made about those mats where you can insert something of your choice, having a different drawing or decoration in any given time of the year.
You don't need to change the base of the mat, because the switchable inserts that are avalaible for purchase are a lot, each one different than the other, and every of them pretty cool.
Since we are talking about Thanksgiving, of course we'll need to examine a Thanksgiving one, like this adorable turkey switch mat!
Since it's only a insert, the price is being sold on Amazon is lower than the other one - but mind you, you still need a base mat and those are a bit more expensive. Precisely, the price is 13,50 dollars.
While the size might be smaller than the other turkey mat, the details are a bit more and the style is more cartoonish and less realistic.
First of all, the turkey resemble some basic cartoon character: a stylized body with some feathers, the classic pilgrim hat, and a tail... well, the tail is interesting and original since it's not made of feathers but of leaves. It's pretty cool and give the whole thing a more autumnal feeling. Even more autumnal is the big cornucopia that you can see on the side: inside of it there is a lot of autumnal fruits and vegetables, starting with a big pumpkin, but also featuring cobs, grapes, apples, and many other small thing.
Something that might be a bit weird is the writing on top, that for once doesn't say "Happy thanksgiving". Instead, it says "Happy turkey day!" that sounds a bit unusual. I mean, turkey are for sure a big part of Thanksgiving but having the whole day focused just around them and wishing a happy "turkey" day is something a bit weird. But if you like something original, something a bit different, this switch mat is surely the right choice for you.
