“ Brand: Infantino / Type: Play Mats & Gyms „
We bought this off Amazon to take with us when we go to places with the grandchildren. It is very practical and I'm very glad we bought it, it certainly saves space rather than having a big gym and is very easy to take to places with us like when we visit friends without children, this can help keep the baby occupied and happy.
This gym folds up with the bar and the toys inside it and secures with Velcro to stop it popping open. This then means that it doesn't take up much room so ideal for putting in the car or storing after our grandchildren have gone home.
When the mat is opened it measures approximately 50cm x 40cm so it is quite large although not as big as some of the gyms you can buy. It is oval shaped and has a bar which goes over the middle. This connects into two holding posts on either side. You have to make sure you've got it firmly secured in there as if they are't secured properly it will ping out! Hanging off this activity bar are three toys that are really bright and colourful. A flower, a dragon fly and a unicorn. They're very attractive for little ones as they're so bright and teh black and white bar that they connect to is a contrast so they stand out. The mat itself is quite well padded and has a unicorn on it. It isn't like lying on a mattress but it's more padded than just lying on a blanket so it is quite supportive and protective.
The toys have little interactive bits to them. You can disconnect them from the activity bar so they can be played with on their own if you wish. The dragon fly has crinkly wings and a little teething star on the bottom, the unicorn has a teething ring on the bottom too and is very squishy and the flower has little loops of ribbon off it's petals. All aimed to encourage the sense of touch.
My granddaughter loves this and will kick her legs around trying to kick the toys. She has sometimes managed to get hold of them too with her little hands and always looks very pleased with herself when she does. She likes to roll onto her side and study the bar too. It's nice that this toy is encouraging her to be mobile and explore.
I really like this, it's very lovely and bright so it doesn't surprise me that my granddaughter is entertained whilst lying on here and it is very easy to just fold away for later. I can fold it with no help from others within about a minute so it's very easy to do so.
We bought it from Amazon for £20 and I think it's worth every penny.
