  • Title: Great entertainment

    This playmat is wonderful. Our four month old has enjoyed using it for tummy time as well as for building her eye-hand coordination. The mirror is a bonus now that she has discovered the funny image of herself, gaurenteed giggles! The colors are rich and exciting. It's wonderful that the music pad is removeable for complete laundering. Everything snaps off in order to pop in the washer. The hanging animals are removeable and make great carseat buddies. All in all this is a great portable playmat.

  • Title: Music and Lights ruined this product!!

    This is a FANTASTIC product WITHOUT the lights and sounds. We have a gymini deluxe with no lights, no sounds, and it is perfect for our 4 month old daughter. She loves it. Why add "video game" like qualitites to an excellent toy? Tiny Love has great toys, I am very disappointed to see them heading in the direction of Fisher Price, everything with lights, sounds, and Mozart. How are kids ever going to learn do to anything without lights and sounds if all of their toys from infancy up are mega stimulating? By the way

  • Title: Love It! And so does our baby daughter!

    I bought this for our daughter when she was only about 6 weeks old and started laying her on her back underneath the hanging animals. She LOVES it! She is now almost 3 mos. old and is able to kick at the animals and bat at them with her hands. I have many pictures of her laying on her playmat with big smiles on her face! The music and the lights are nice. She particularly likes to look at herself in the mirror. What makes this mat very nice is that you can buy additional hanging toys for it and change things around so baby doesn't get bored. I highly recommend it!

  • Title: Excellent for young babies who are bored!

    This helped our son get from the stage of just lying on his back with one handheld toy to moving about, pulling himself up, and eventually crawling! There are a variety of toysm each of which is at a different ability level so your little one may not use all of them at first. Joseph couldn't 'do' the jittery elephant at first and when he discovered he was able to work it, he was overjoyed! The music that goes with this mat is good for the most part, but the rendition of Three Blind Mice doesn't start properly and adults may get bored with the Mozart after a while. I think perhaps a greater selection of tunes would have helped. Nevertheless it was fascinating to watch our son learn how to operate the switch and then to see his face as he enjoyed the music. The unit is also washable A great way of helping your baby learn while he has fun."

  • Title: Mozart Please...

    This really is a terrific playmat. It has numerous hanging animals (each one does something different), so the baby always seems to have a "new toy". The choice of Mozart or nursery rhymes is also fantastic...my grandson like the Mozart best. I like the idea that the mirror is large and that it does not distort what the baby sees (most of them give a really weird look).I would really recommend this item for all new parents, and it makes a great gift. It comes with its own carry case which makes it a pleasure to use and put away.

  • Title: A Keeper!

    This product is wonderful! We had originally purchased a different Gymini without the lights and music, and my 2 month old son rejected it completely. After bringing this home, he played for almost fifteen minutes listening to the music and staring at the toys, the longest time he was ever content to not be held by me! Mozart is his favorite, and, now that he can roll, he loves to stare and smile at himself in the big mirror. I highly recommend this; your stimuli-loving baby will thank you.

  • Title: one toy worth the money

    this play mat is incredible. with many great colors and textures it keeps my son entertained for quite a while. This toy made such a great impression on me and my friends, that we all own one. I will now get this gym as a gift for any of my expecting friends with no hesitation.

  • Title: my baby loves this!

    i first used this with my baby when he was two weeks old. he loved it! the monkey really seemed to get his attention. now that he is over a month he yells and coos at all of the critters and has discovered himself in the mirror (something that really seems to crack him up). there is something new for him to discover every day. i also think this is better than the black, red and white playmats. the bright colors get his attention without overloading his senses (some kids really freak out with the other ones). it is also very durable as his dad already accidentally smooshed it!

  • Title: feature-rich, but a little flimsy music box.

    I got it for my 2 mo old son, since i thought he was starting to get bored with the musical mobile on top of his crib. I guess he is still too young, but he didn't reach out to grab the hanging toys. He did, however, enjoy the classical music that plays for 10 long minutes. Now at 3 mo, he likes the mirror hanging at the corner of the gym, but still doesn't care much for the hanging stuff. About the only gripe i have is the flimsiness of the music box. After accidentally stepping on it

  • Title: Love It!

    This is the best money we have spent so far. Our 2-1/2-month-old daughter loves this mat. She started out watching the lights and listening to the music. Now she is grabbing the animals and laughing and having a good time. She will lay and play for a long time, and sometimes even falls asleep from playing so much. I highly recommend this mat. Also, after a few weeks of use one of the light bulbs burned out. I contacted Tiny Love on their web site and they sent a whole new mechanism without a problem. Very cool!

  • Title: New Mom

    My daughter is 2 months old and absolutely loves this toy. It is definitely one of the best baby shower gifts we've received. She grabs the animals , smiles at the lights, and coos the entire time she lies on the mat. It is a must for infants!!

  • Title: I love it alot but my baby doesn't !

    I like this mat since I saw it and then I bought it for my 2.5 month old baby girl. However, after it arrives, my baby doesn't like it much. She can spend time by herself under it about 5 minutes and cries. I have to put her hand to touch the hanging toys and shake the rattles for her, and this can keep her interest around 10 minutes and that's it. I hope in the future she will play with it more; otherwise I have to return this cute stuff.

  • Title: Great for everyday play

    My 4 month-old loves this mat. The mirror actually encourages him to roll over so he can see himself better. Each hanging toy has different shapes and colors which keeps him stimulated for long periods. The classical music setting is nice and lasts for minutes, but the nursery rhyme music is bad and only lasts about 20 seconds. My son plays on it at least an hour each day, and loves it.

    My husband and I both agree that this was by far our best purchase for our daughter. She has spent time on her play mat every day and totally loves it!! Well worth the money!!!

  • Title: Not worth the money!!!

    My daughter HATES this toy. She has had in since 2 months and she is now 5 months and she STILL HATES it. It is too busy. She gets over stimulated and then upset with it. When I take most of the hanging toys off of it she is OK with it but then gets board. The musical flowers don't entertain her and the angle that the mirror is at makes it almost impossible for her to see herself in it without being so close to it her nose it practally touching it. I would say don't buy it. Spend less money on a similar one but don't spend the big bucks on this one. My recommendation would be take the money and buy and exersaucer. They will also last longer.

  • Title: Absolutely love this!!

    I got this for my son when he was about 2 1/2 months old. He is now 5 months and still loves it. It seems every time he plays on it, he discovers something new! I love that all of the toys that hang down are removable and can be moved to different spots. My son loves to kick, so I can move some of the toys to a lower spot where he can kick them. It's so easy to store I have no complaints about this product. A definite must have!"

  • Title: My newborn liked this toy

    This was a shower gift from a dear friend of mine. My newborn really enjoyed this toy. She was interested in the animals. She especially enjoyed the vibration of the elephant. Ocassionally we use it to pacify her. At one month, she began to hit the toys and smile at their movement. It is a wonderful toy to encourage hand and eye movements. I can't wait to purchase the wind chime attachment.

    We bought this for our baby when he was 4 weeks old. He immediatly loved it. He's now 10 weeks old and still loves it! He lies on his back and smiles and laughs at the hanging animals. He gets so excited, waving his arms up at them. It folds up easily, so we always bring this with us when we go to someones house. It is by far the best thing we have bought for our baby!

  • Title: Baby did not like it

    The baby did not like this toy. The stuffed elephant and giraffe are the only things she liked about this toy. We used it for about 30 minutes and once the baby starts to move well the mat isn't big enough. I think this is better for children under 3 months.

  • Title: Great purchase

    I bought this mat when my son was about 2 months old, since then, I've enjoyed watching him grow with it. I can easily see how he would be overwhelmed with all of it's options, so I rotate the amount, placement and heights of the toys. He loves the mirror (smiles to himself), really loves the bird and elephant. He has started to kick the wind chimes and enjoys that. An added bonus is clipping the toys on to other things for him (namely the bird!). Every so often, we just use the mat for him to give him time on his stomach. Folds and stores easily. Easy cleanup. My only regret is that the mat is not much bigger. Still in the end, I would reccommed it!

  • Title: Best playmat out there!

    My 3 month old really likes this. It's taken him awhile to enjoy it because of his age, but he's starting to really get into staring at the toys and grabing at them. It has a good amount of removable toys hanging from it and an attached mirror in one corner. Also 3 flowers on the mat that light up when the music is turned on. Things I like about it are that the toys are of good quality as well as cute and the mat is nicely padded. It also has a few different interesting features such as a crinkely elephant ear, furry zebra mane, squeaky bird, etc.. which are on the mat itself. I also like that you can detach the toys to wash or take with you. My son loves chewing on them. The colors and patterns of this mat are very nice. Visually stimulating for the baby yet not gaudy. Very cute and fun. And the music isn't annoying as on some toys. The tune can be changed and the sound quality is good. I found the price of this was a bit high, but when compared to some of the other ones, the little bit extra that you pay is worth it. I have another one someone gave me and I don't like it half as much simply because it's lacking a lot of the features this one has. The only thing I don't like is the mirror seems a bit warped when you look into it, so I'm guessing the baby doesn't see himself all that well in it. But other than that, I love this product and highly reccommend it.

  • Title: Super Deluxe is Super Fun!

    We received this gift in the mail. At first our daughter was overwhelmed. Now she really enjoys it. At four months she grabs the toys and peers into the mirror to see herself. She really loves the giraffe. We attached the windchimes(sold separately). It added a whole new dimension of fun. The music is an added benefit, but not necessary. Our only problem is that the elephant tends to fall off easily. Otherwise, it's a great toy. We purchased it for our friend's new arrival.

  • Title: Not Quite Perfect

    Our daughter loves the colors and motion of the objects in this play mat. At two months, she appears to try to bat at things (consistent repetitive actions towards the hanging toys). It is nearly perfect. If you're a music lover or a musician

  • Title: Excellent toy from birth on!

    Being a first time Mommy I wasn't sure what I should really do to entertain a newborn, so I started putting my daughter on this mat the first week after she was born. She loved staring at the Tiny Love ladybug that I added to the hanging animals. (I purchased the ladybug and windchimes separately at the Babies R Us store near me - they are great too!) She immediately started learning how to bat at the animals and reach up for them. She's lying on it now as I write this review and is now 3 1/2 months old. She has gone from batting at the toys randomly to grabbing and shaking them. I also move the windchimes around because she loves to find them with her feet. I see how this has helped her hand/eye coordination. She also prefers tummy time on this mat more than anything else because of the bright colors to look at and things to grab. She even falls asleep on it because she wears herself out playing. The only suggestion I would have is a wider variety of music. I am tired of hearing the Mozart song that it plays (although she probably isn't) It's very durable too. She's been on it everday for 3 1/2 months now and there is no pilling of the material or fading. I do put it back in the cover though after use to help keep it clean."

  • Title: Awesome Investment

    I think this is a wonderful developmental activity mat. My daughter (3 months) old, absolutely loves it. She is not at the point yet where she is playing with everything on the mat, but that's the good part about it. She tries to reach for the animals that hang above her, (she loves the parrot). And each of the toys that hang have something special about them, like when your baby grabs the parrots feathers/tail, it sounds like you are crinkling up foil or something - it's really neat. It keeps her busy/attention for at least 30 minutes. I think as she gets a little bit older, it will keep her attention longer. And she will still be able to have more fun with the mat, because of all the colors, music, mirrors, and different textures for her to feel on the mat. It's definitely worth investing in!

  • Title: Great Plaything for babies

    This is my son's new favorite toy! It packs up easily too, so we can bring it with us when we are away from home. It is perfect for our almost 3 mo old who is learning to bat at and grab all the great toys that are dangling above him. It's great to be able to adjust the height of the toys too. The mirror is great for tummy time. Great all-around toy.

  • Title: We LOVE this activity mat!!!!!

    I have 3 month old twins and they love playing on the mat. They both love to play with the hanging toys. My son love looking at the lights so the lights are encouraging him to try and roll over. My daughter can look at herself in the mirror for an extended period of time. And anything thing that can keep a 3 month olds attention is great. The mat is also great for their tummy time. One of the biggest advantages for us is both of the babies can play on the mat at once. This is a great buy I would recommend this mat to anyone.

  • Title: A great buy!

    I bought this for my son when he was 3 months old and he loved it! He immediately began pulling at the animals and looking at himself in the mirror. It's so compact, you can take it anywhere with you. Once he started rolling around, he was able to play with the music mat. One of the best things we've bought for him.

  • Title: Great Playmat

    We received this as a shower gift and it has been the best toy for my son. He is now 5 months and loves it. We have added extra toys like the chimes so that he can make his own music. He loves all the toys, lights, and music. He especially likes the crinkle fabric in the elephant's ear. I love how easy it is to fold up and put away. The only problem I did have was the fact that the mat did fade after the first wash. It still is a great playmat that I know my son will enjoy for several more months.

  • Title: Greatest Activity Mat Available

    I bought this activity mat for my son when he was 3 months old, after realizing I needed more than just a bouncer or car seat to place him in. I only wish that I had found this sooner. The Mozart music plays continuously for 10 minutes and the brightly colored and textured toys continue to keep him stimulated even now, at 11 months -- the hanging toys are removable, and make for great travel toys to keep your little one occupied. I found that as he grew through various stages, he discovered different parts of the mat such as the mirror, the fact that the dangling elephant vibrates when you pull it down, the lights in the flowers light up when the music is on, etc. I bought the kicking wind chimes as another hanging toy, and he had a ball with that as he started to move around more. Thumbs up on this one!

  • Title: You Need This

    My baby LOVES this gym. He has been playing in it since he was 2 months old (he's 6 months now). It is so versatile, with so much to do: batting, grasping, rolling over, crawling, kicking, sitting, mirrors, lights, music, colors, textures. It is stimulating and entertaining. Great shower gift.

  • Title: he could play in it for 1 hour straight

    This gym was a blessing for us. My son would sty in it for a whole hour just looking in the mirror and when he was older pulling at the toys. I think it is the best one out there. Used it from 3 mos to 6 mos and now (he's 8 mos) I sometimes pull it out and he will sit in it playing for awhile. I washed it so many times and dried it too, and the color faded a little, but was ok.

  • Title: Engaging and Good Quality

    I bought this playmat because I was looking for something interesting for my very active ten week old boy. He has been "dancing" in his crib to his mobile, so I thought something like this would be enjoyable for him. He LOVES it. He lies under the little arch smiling up at the toys, batting at them, and kicking his feet to the rhythm of the music. (I like the fact that the music can be changed--we also have the Symphony in Motion mobile from Tiny Love and I'm very tired of listening to Mozart! ) All in all, it is an engaging toy that seems to be well made. I enjoy watching my son as he is actively interacting with the soft toys and the mirror.

  • Title: Worth every penny!

    We've had the John Lennon play mat since my 20 week old son was born. Even though I had changed out the hanging toys to give him variety once in awhile, he seemed to be getting bored with it pretty fast so I looked around at other options. I ended up bringing this one home and it has WAY exceeded my expectations. My son spends a lot more time having fun and exploring on this mat. It has also incented him to roll over much more often. He's loving it!!! Also, I highly recommend buying the tiny love wind chime kicking toy to add to ANY play mat. Great exercise for baby! :)

    My mom bought this for my 2 month old son, and he loves it! There's so much color, and fun for him, he gets excited everytime he sees it. It plays Mozart (which is very stimulating for the brain), and the animals and textures are very interesting for babies. I would recommend for all babies to have one!

  • Title: THIS IS THE BEST!

    This is the greatest from about 3 months up. Our daughter is 7 months and it is still one of her favorites. We have now removed the lights and music panel from it(just lift up the velcro) since she is mobile and kept rolling on it and kicking the plastic parts. It is such a great activity mat. It is worth the little extra for it!

    To all the parents that are looking for a gym set to keep their baby busy...this is the one. This gym set is not only fun but educational too. My daughter received this when she was two months and loves it. She enjoys who she sees when she looks in the mirror and the crinkling noise that the parrot makes. When I pull the elephant she starts kicking her legs and batting at it.........it's a beautiful sight to see. The music also soothes her,what else could I say besides I am very happy with this product.

My daughter loves everything about this gym - especially the mirror and the chimes. I highly recommend this item.

    Ok,..so this playmat is probably the most expensive out there..however, it provides my child with HOURS of non-stop entertainment and developmental activity. He's 7 months old, and he/we love this mat. He'll lie on his back and coo and grab at the animals; while when on his tummy, it provides him with the much needed tummy play time, and has been crawling since he turned 6 months old. He loves the music, mirror and "crinkle" sounds of some of the objects. If it gets dirty, it's easy to clean... take all the cloth off, and throw it in the wash and dry it on medium.

    I received the super deluxe gymni as a gift and also received two other brands. I looked them all over and decided this was the most entertaining and well made of the three. My daughter is only two months and she's already delighted with it. She loves to look at the animals dangling and swat at them with her hands. She is mesmerized by the mirror. We haven't even gotten to the music and lights and I already feel it is well worth {the money}. It's sturdy and washable and I love the bright colors and jungle theme.

    This is a great playmat. I had not registered for it but it was given to me as a gift. When I opened the gift I thought my 2 month old daugter is not going to like that. She loved it! To understand how exciting that is you must know my daughter has been colic since 3 weeks. She constantly wanted to be held. We layed her down adjusted the mirror so she could see herself on her back and she loves it. The toys are also great because you can take them off and she holds on to them when we leave the house.

    Absolutely love it! Our son is challenged to look, grap, turn, and perform many more activities by having so much fun.

  • Title: Could not live without it!

    This activity mat is our best purchase yet. We bought this when my son was about 2 months (now 3 1/2 months). He absolutely loves it. It can entertain him for quite a while, and I feel good about letting him play on it without worrying since it is on the ground. I truly think it has helped my son learn to roll over more quickly than he would have otherwise. It is great for tummy time play - teaching good head control. In addition, this is a great outlet for letting him get good exercise. I often worry about him just sitting around in swings and bouncers. This lets him kick and move, which I believe gets him good and tired so he sleeps even better. This is what I consider a "can't live without" baby item.

  • Title: So Much Fun!

    This play gym is the best. We didn't register for it, and when I received it as a gift I thought it had too much going on. Little did I know how thankful I would be for it! My baby started playing on it around 6 weeks old. I've seen his brain develop right before my eyes thanks to this toy. He started to reach out for toys, he started rolling over, he started noticing himself in the mirror, bringing things to his mouth, and now he's starting to scoot himself around to get to all the fun stuff. Soon he'll be crawling! All of the toys that hang from the arches do something neat and different to stimulate your baby. The mat itself has little surprises...mozart, crinkling ears, a hidden squeaker, a giraffe tail. It's the perfect place to put your baby for his developmental "tummy time" as a newborn and then for his developmental play time as an older infant. I'll cry when we have to put it away! A definite must-have!

  • Title: Newborn must have!

    Worth every penny! With my twins I realized how difficut it was to entertain an infant. This playmat has to be one of our best investments. At 3 months they were amazed at the different animals dangling above them and the older they got the more they grabbed and batted at them. My girls are now 7 months old and still love it. Compared to others the hanging toys are included.(you need to purchase them separately with some other mats.) Some extras that most mats don't have are lights and music, although my girls never seemed to interested in them. The mat also washes well. Pay the extra and buy this mat!!!

  • Title: GREAT PLAYMAT

    I GOT THIS FOR MY SECOND CHILD. SHE REALLY LOVES IT. I CAN HANG OTHER TOYS THAT I HAVE FROM IT AND SHE WILL KICK AND BAT THEM FOR THE LONGEST TIME. I ALSO LIKE THE MUSIC THAT IT PLAYS. MY 2 YEAR OLD ALSO LIKE TO LAY UNDER IT WITH HER SISTER. I LOOKED AT ALOT OF PLAYMATS AND DECIDED THAT THIS ONE WAS WELL WORTH THE MONEY. IT DOES COST A LITTLE MORE THAT SOME OTHERS.

  • Title: Wiggly baby LOVEs this

    My son is almost 4 months old now and this has been his favorite thing since he was about 1 month old. At first of course he just laid there and looked up at it, but he seemed to enjoy that (especially the elephant b/c it's sparkly on the bottom). He now loves batting at the toys, grabbing them (and stuffing them in his mouth) and giggling at himself in the mirror. A childless friend watched him going to town on the wiggle mat and said, "What is this thing? I want to buy one now in case they quit making them if I ever have kids!" We've taken it with on car trips for in the hotel and to grandma's house--wonderful.

    I absolutely LOVE this gym...My first child had a simple black/white/red gym didnt do a whole lot...didnt collapse..but this gym has just about EVERYTHING you'll need, music, mirror, 5 hanging toys (which my daughter really really loves, especially the monkey) It makes different noises, one which a button thing that squeeks...its very easy to put away, and you can add more pieces to it if you child for some reason gets bored with it...My sister-in-law is having a baby soon, and I am definitly going to buy one for her...Im sure my daughter will be using this for a while seeing that she is only 5 months old...this is a MUST buy!!!

  • Title: Longterm Fun

    PHENOMENAL toy. This is the only one that I leave in the living room fulltime, as my son uses it for probably 2 hours every day. When Charlie was 4 weeks old, he'd lie and blink and drool and look quite contented; he was fascinated with his own image in the large mirror. As he's aged (to almost 7 months), he has gone from batting at the hanging toys to grabbing them (and screaming in triumph--trust me, it's just as funny as it sounds) to pulling them down to teethe on. I've seen 3 other models of the Gymini at friends' homes and none have a) the large mirror, b) the music (which he has recently discovered how to turn on by himself), c) the fun crinkly/honky/tuggy bits on the playmat, or d) the quantity of hanging toys. Also: this toy collapses absolutely flat and weighs almost nothing, so I was able to pack it in a large suitcase to fly with for a week-long trip--I don't know what I would have done without it. It goes to Grandma's, it goes to friends' homes, it goes on vacation with us. Top notch.

    We received the Fisher Price Kick N Crawl Barn gym as a gift, and it was junk from the start. It would tilt and be in our baby's face. We knew she liked the concept of the gym, so we went to Babies R Us to seek another. Well After we are done having children

  • Title: Love it!!

    I bought this for my son when he was 2 months old, although he was too young to really enjoy a lot of the features he still loved to lay and look in the mirror. Now at 3 months he is enjoying more of the features, I have arranged the toys across one of the arches and lay him under on his back, he is content for a long time just cooing at the animals. I like that you can remove the toys - that way you can take with you if baby has a favorite. All in all, a great toy. He seems to like it more and for different reasons all the time.

    My twin daughters love this gym. They can either be on their backs and bat at the hanging animals or they can lay on their bellies and watch the lights blink in the flowers. The music is great and they both love it. I also like the fact that you can detach the hanging animals and move them around. I recommend this gym for all parents.

  • Title: Great activity for new baby!

    My daughter has enjoyed her mat since birth. It has been a great place for her to spend her tummy time because she loves looking at the different patterns on the mat; and when she is on her back she enjoys the hanging animals. At first she would just swat at them but now she is grabbing and exploring them. I highly recommend this to parents with an infant. My one complaint is that the lights and music broke after a few months. For such a pricey toy, this was disappointing; however, the main attraction of the toy is not the music (in fact, my husband could not stand it) but the bright colors and toys. My daughter loves it!

  • Title: Our four-month old likes it

    She seems to enjoy being under the crossbars when she is on her back. The colorful, dangling stuffed animals hold her attention and are within easy reach. There are crinkly inserts stitched into the animals and the floor area, providing some audible stimuli for her to discover and enjoy. When she is on her tummy, the Gymini doesn't seem to hold her attention as much, but that may just be because she can't yet crawl around and interact with the sound-and-lights area.

  • Title: best purchase yet!

    We purchased the Gymini when our son was 3 weeks old, and it was an instant hit! We had started out with the Boppy 5-in-1 but he didn't care for it and I didn't care for taking it apart every time he ate. I went on a search for a play gym, and I saw this one. I was a bit reluctant to buy this because of the price, but it's been worth every cent! Our son is 3 1/2 months old now and he loves the Gymini. He kicks and bats at the animals (the monkey's the favorite - hand and feet fit well in the mouth!) and stares at himself in the mirror. It also makes a great place for a quick nap or tummy time. My son loves the toy so much that we bought additional Tiny Love animals to attach to the arch - a purple bird and a green frog, both with stretchy legs that he loves to pull on and put in his mouth. I did find that the mat faded after washing (and I let it air dry), but it's minor and doesn't affect the product's use.

    As I am sending this to my friend for her baby, I just realized that I never wrote a review for this. My daughter is almost 11 months old now. she still plays with the hanging toys. my daughter loves every mirror she looks at. the first mirror she looked into came with this play gym. she kisses her reflection, loves different sounds the fabric makes. The music is wonderful too and used to calm her down when she was little. every bit of this gym is great. worth every penny.

    I bought this playmat for my daughter when she was 2 months old. She absolutely loved it. Of course she was too young to really play with it when we first got it but she enjoyed looking around at all the bright colors and listening to the music. The legs of the animals dangle low so when she started trying to grab things, she could reach them easily. She quickly learned to stick their feet into her mouth and she loved to pull the elephant down so it would vibrate. I think this was the best toy we bought!! We was definitely worth the money!!

    I received this gym toy as a baby shower gift. It has been one of the BEST toys for my twin boys. They are 8 months old now and still like to crawl into and out of it. In the beginning, I would put them on their backs in the middle of it, by themselves or together and they loved kicking and tugging at all the toys,(The stretchy monkey and the up-and-down elephant are still the favorites.) then turning them onto their tummies to grab at the pictures on the mat. As they started rolling over at about 2.5 months they would enjoy finding themselves in front of the mirror or on top of the flashing lights. Now This is a SUPER baby shower gift and if you don't receive one

    Even though I picked average and above average ratings, I feel that any baby gym of this type would have been great. It is a little pricey. My daughter used it, but she's played on other less expensive ones and had just as much fun. It is one of the few purchases that I made that I did not feel was worth the $$ spent. Like I said she had fun and its durable, but I think you can get by on one that is less expensive.

    We bought this gym for my son and it worked out very well. When he was very young he just looked at all the animals in awe, then began to bat them with his hands and kick them with his feet. The mirror is wonderful for encouraging tummy time. All in all I would definitely recommend this gym.

From about 3 months she had fun batting at them, and now she's 6 months she's enjoying turning the music on and plays with the crinkly elephant ears and giraffe tail on the mat itself. She had another playmat that was good when she was younger but hasn't stood the test of time!

  • Title: my son's favorite thing

    This is one of those gifts that as a first time mom I didn't appreciate when I opened it at my baby shower. I didn't see what the fuss was, and it really seemed pretty pricey for a play mat. Was I wrong! My son is 7 1/2 months old, and we have used this every day since he was about a week old. At first he just liked looking up at the toys. Eventually he started to reach for them. The mirror was his favorite thing, at first we had to position him correctly but he quickly learned to roll to look at it himself. Now if we put him under it he will pull all the toys down to him (into his mouth of course) and play happily, sometimes for over 30 minutes. He also can sit up now, and loves to sit on one side, facing the center, where he can grab at the toys from a new angle and gnaw on the bars. This mat had features we didn't even realize when we got it--I didn't know there was a squeaker in the mat until at 4 weeks my son kicked it! I wash the mat once a week

  • Title: A must have

    My 5-month-old son LOVES this toy. He lays there in it for 20-30 minutes at a time. He started playing with it when he was 1 month. In the beginning, he would lay there and look at the hanging toys. As time went on, he learned to whack at them, and now he grabs at them. He is very active and likes to pull on the mirror - the toy has proven to be durable. We also ended up buying an additional toy (wind chimes) which was sold separately which he enjoys playing with. This toy is lightweight and easy to move from room to room and it can be set on the floor so there's no danger of him rolling off of it. The only negative thing is that I don't really like the electronic music that plays so I usually play a CD player in the background instead."

Me and my husband had actually named each of the toys that hang down since my daughter does nothing but spends all day talking to them. She also loves the mozart played by this toy and the fact that it has a mirror since she loves to spend all her time looking at herself all day (though the mirror does look like it belongs in the fun house of mirrors) but after all I do give this toy all the stars it can get because I know that from this moment on it will keep my baby well enertained and in love!!!!!!!!

    This is my daughter's favorite toy thus far. She can spend easily an hour under it. Her interest in it has been dynmaic: at first (5 weeks old), she just looked at it and didn't seem too interested--I thought it was a waste! Then, she started reaching for the toys. Now, at 4 mos., she pulls at, talks to, and "eats" the toys, and is exploring the various aspects of the mat itself. My only gripe is that it only plays a few songs, and the "nursery rhyme" function shuts off after each song. Still totally worth it. (I think you can get it cheaper at Target, though).

    I bought this for my daughter when she was only about a month old. She loved it from the start. She would lay there and look at the hanging toys and in the mirror as the music played. The music is great...not very loud and not annoying. She is now 3 months old and reaches for the toys and talks to herself in the mirror. I have not washed it yet...but the music and lights piece slides out without difficulty. This will keep her entertained for about 15 to 30 minutes. I think that this is the perfect infant toy. It also folds up for easy storage.

And now he rolls over and he reaches up and grabs objects and explores orally. He continues to enjoy playing on it and we continue to love watching him play!

  • Title: Best Mat Around

    I bought this for my son before he was born, just because it looked cute. I also bought him every other toy I saw that looked cute. Most of them are still sitting in the closet, but this one gets used EVERY SINGLE DAY! When he was only days old he stared at himself in the mirror. Now he loves to 'talk' (read coo) at his two best pals the monkey and the elephant. He also loved the way the elphant jitters when pulls, or I assume he does because he smiles like mad and gave me his first genuine giggle just yesterday as a result of the vibrations on his tummy. Normally he hates tummy time, but he will stay for about 10 minutes and it was also on this mat that he first turned over at an astounding 12 days old. I am not sure the bells and wistles (the lights and sounds) were really worth the extra money - I bought my sister the Noah's Ark pattern and it is just as big a hit at her house, but overall it is an awesome toy. Also the windchimes are a MUST HAVE add-on. He will kick them for literally 45 minutes without a break. Tiny love makes wonderful products and this is no exception.

  • Title: One of the more tolerable baby toys

    We got this as a hand-me-down when our baby was born and didn't think to set it up until he was 3 weeks old. After trying to entertain him with rattles and other toys he had no interest in, we were surprised by how much he loves this one. The dangling animals all have different textures and attributes, so he likes to watch them dangle while he kicks the vibrating elephant and triggers the music pad. The music is easy to listen to-- not the screeching high-pitched stuff you get on a lot of toys, varied enough not to be too irritating, and low-volume. There are still elements of this mat our 8 week old has yet to discover, so it should last a while.

  • Title: Costs a little more than most mats, but worth it!!!

    I ordered this a few weeks ago and we've used it at least twice every single day since it arrived. My baby is now 9 weeks old and loves it. His favorite toy by far is the monkey. I detach it and take it everywhere with us now and he always smiles at it and talks to it. I wish I could just buy an extra monkey toy separately! The Mozart music is great, but the nursery rhyme tunes are really short and don't sound as nice. I also ordered the chimes which are also great. My baby is a real "kicker" and he'll go non-stop on the chimes for an hour. I'm sure this toy will last a lot longer since there's so much on it he hasn't discovered yet. At a freind's house, I just saw the Deluxe Symphony Mobile from Tiny Love with similar looking animals that I'm going to order soon.

    I received the Mommy & Me activity mat for my baby shower. My daughter never took to it though so we just set it aside (the toys are not interesting enough & too high in my opinion).

I also purchased the wind chimes & attached them to the mat...she loves all the toys. It's easy for her to reach them, the mat makes lots of noises & sounds, and she loves to smile at herself in the mirror. It folds up very nicely too. I highly recommend this activity mat!

  • Title: In your face!

    I received this item for my newborn daughter. At first I loved the idea of having hanging toys, mirror, music and lights all in one piece... however, the hanging animals hang so low that they almost hit her in the face and there is no way to shorten them. She is only 3 months old and seems to like the set, but what about when she is a little older (bigger)? I do love the big mirror though, she can see herself from almost anywhere on the blanket. There is a choice of Mozart or Nursery Rhymes Music but they only play for 1-2 minutes at a time and you need to keep resetting the music. Thankfully it is not too loud, just the right volume for babies and toddlers.

    I bought this when my daughter was a month old or so and she loved it from the beginning. With an older child, there were times when I needed to put her down and she loved this mat. For a while she just watched the toys and lights but soon batted at them and pulled them down. It was spit up and pooped on and washes great in the machine. It also folds up and goes back in the package easily and we took it with us on vacation. I could get dressed, get dinner ready or get down and play with her while she was on this mat. She is almost a year now and doesn't use it any longer, but it was worth every penny.

Don't make the same mistake I did - thinking twice about purchasing it due to the high price; I wish I had bought it months ago.

Plays for nearly an hour without a fuss. :) He even hates being on his back but not in that thing.. nice and soft mat.. We bought a couple extra items to go on the arch however he loves the Beads and the Girraffe the most (probably cause they hang lower so he can reach them yet) hehe.. The only thing i would like to see this product change is have more music choices.. the mozart is WONDERFUL but its the same song.. and the nursery ryhmes are short and you have to keep turing them on and off to get them to play back to back unlike the mozart that plays repeatitivly for a LONG time :) But overall LOVE IT!"

    My four month old baby has been enjoying his play mat since he was three weeks old. I thought that as he grew he'd lose interest, but every time he reaches a new milestone he finds a different way to play on it. At first all he liked was the mirror, then he preferred staring the toys, then reaching for them. Now he rolls and kicks the bars and watches how everything wiggles. It's amazing to see how long it can keep him entertained. The music goes on for ten minutes at a time - and the Mozart is far more pleasing to the ear than the nursery rhymes. A great gift!

    This has been the toy we've used the most of all the things we've bought/received for our son. We started putting him in it when he was 2 months old, and he would happily bat and kick at the toys. That moved on to grabbing and pulling the toys, rolling over and exploring the crinkly elephant's ear and the giraffe's tail on his tummy, and grabbing the mirror. The music and lights don't seem to do too much for him, so you could probably get a version without those. It washes well and only faded a little when washed in cold, which I think I've done twice. Good for travel to Grandma's house, since it folds up. He's 6 months old now, and still not bored with it.

    The obvious problem with this toy is that it's $60 and is only suitable for 6 months. The Gymini concept is great, but I'd go for a cheaper, more bare-bones version. A baby under 6 months won't be offended. My problems with this item: The toys hang too low and ""in-your-face"" - my son found this upsetting. The music is repetetive and annoying. We're not talking Mozart's greatest hits

    I thought this prduct would be decent quality since I spent a fortune on it and extra Gymini toys to go with it. It faded terribly the first time I washed it. It also shrank ALOT and was hard to get back together. Also, the toys aren't that interesting to babies. I run my own inhome childcare, and all three babies weren't thrilled. The music is LOUD and terrible. It would turn on by itself even when it was turned off. I ended up taking the music and lights part out and throwing it away. Don't waste your money on a piece of junk. Invest in the new Fisher Price Linkadoos playmat. It is wonderful and the extra toys are reasonably priced and the kids LOVE it!!!!!!!!!!!!"

    This is so much fun! When we first got this for our daughter, we had to laugh. Our family cats, all 3 of them, were playing and batting the toys around! Our daughter is now 7 months old, and we still occasionally use it. We have purchased a few extra toys to go on it, so she won't get bored, but she laughs every time she hits the crackles, and the little squeaky. Her favorites are the pull down elephant and the monkey. This is agreat toy to give some stimulation, as well as some tummy time. I have had it in the wash a few times, and it still looks as good as new! Great toy!

  • Title: The Best Gym Ever

    Boy do I wish I had bought this for my first child. Instead of my third. My baby loves this. There are so many things for her to do. She has played on this since she was 4weeks old. Trying to get her eyes to focus and see a better picture of things. Now she looks at everything. She loves the parrot, and elephant. She also loves the lights in the flowers. She will pull at the flowers to see the lights. Now I can not keep her still on the gym. She rolls to where she wants to be and plays for hours on end. This was a gift and was by far the best I have ever had. The really good thing is that the music is not that loud. So it does not hurt her ears. She will actually roll over to the music box and put her ear to it and go to sleep. The really good thing about this product is that Tiny Love has a lifetime warranty. If something ever breaks, tears or whatever they will replace it (no questions asked). I have several tiny love items and they are all so good. The quality is great. The customer Service is wonderful also. I bought a tiny love Mobile and the music box did not work and they sent me another one(music Box) and I got it in 2 days. I would tell anyone to buy all of there products. They are all so great.

    Our son hates tummy time (hates it!), and this is the only thing we've found that will keep him from starting to wail within the first five minutes. He particularly loves to look at himself in the mirror - he's fascinated by it. He also enjoys kicking the various ""noise makers"" - the crinkly elephant ear and the squeak toy by the monkey. This is also good for when baby wants to be on his back - lots of hanging toys that rattle

    I bought this for my son when he was just 4 weeks old. He's now 9 weeks and loves the time he spends on this playgym. He's now starting to reach for the toys and while on his tummy, pushes up on his arms to look at the mirror. It has everything a baby needs to develop. The toys are fun and the colors are very stimulating, while the music adds a bit of calm. I recommend this playgym over any other. Well worth the money!

  • Title: Love It!

    We absolutely love this playmat. Our daughter started using this around 1 month old, and it still entertains her today and she is 8 months old now. We have got our moneys worth on this one. I would also recommend the Wind Chime Kick Toy that attatches to the hooks. This helped develope her kicking reflexes by rewarding her with PEACEFUL bells ringing everytime she kicked. I have also washed the mat after removing the music insert and found that it held up very well in the machine washer.

  • Title: Great Product

    I love this product! When I saw the picture I was afraid it would be too pastel in color, but it is actually very bright and very cute! My son even likes looking at the striped toy bar as much as he likes the toys. The toys themselves are soft and bright and can be used separate from the gym. We like to clip the giraffe onto the car seat. It is very easy to set up and take down. It folds flat so we can store it behind an end table and we take it out to play with a couple times a day. Just a twist and a snap and it is all ready to go. The volume of the music is pretty low, but I'd rather have it too soft than too loud. We ordered the Tiny Love Musical Windchimes to go with this, it's a great addition to the toys that come with it.

  • Title: Love it, love it, love it!! A must!!

    This "gym" is incredible. I think that it's one of the best purchases we've made for our daughter. From the first time she laid in it, at 6 weeks old, she became so much more aware... You could literally see her developing physically & mentally. She started to reach for the toys, and turn toward the mirror immediately. It's kept her captivated for hours! She's five months old now and still loves it. It's easy to take everywhere, and I love that the toys can be unclipped & moved around or switched with other toys. I can't say enough about this gym. I recommend it to every mom I talk to!

  • Title: Love it!

    This is a great thing ever! Our 2month old used to hate his tummy time, but after we got him the playgym, he's been the happiest baby! He loves the mirror, he's actually lifting his head to look at his reflection and smiles back, he loves the elephant, and chimes (bought it separately). He loves to lay there and kick the toys. For the first time he is reaching towards animals. I think because of the gymini he's started to notice the toys in his bouncer too, and now he can entertain himself for at least 25 minutes!!!! Buy it

  • Title: A Must Have for New Moms!

    This was the first toy my son truly interacted with. He started by trying to kick at the stuffed animals hanging down and then moved on to grabbing at animals with both hands. It's one of the few things he'll play with on his own (he's four months now) and is often the only way I can manage to sit down for a few minutes of peace. He loves looking at himself in the mirror and, in fact, the first time he rolled up on his side was to get a better look at it. The gym has definitely encouraged him to use his hands, feet, and body while teaching him to entertain himself. It's the one toy that travels with us everywhere.

  • Title: Best baby gym out there

    We looked at a lot of these floor gyms before registering for this one. I'm so glad we did! Not all of them have a mirror, which I didn't think would be a big deal, but the mirror turned out to be our son's favorite feature. He's 3 months old and can be entertained for almost an hour at a time with this gymini. It's also very easy to pack up and take with you.

  • Title: Tummy Time Treasure

    When I bought this after daughter was born (3 wks) I thought it was a complete waste of $60, but I must say that this is no longer the case. My daughter LOVES this, and we were able to start her on tummy time at 4 wks. She hated doing it on a blanket but has a great time looking in the mirror and playing with the flaps on the padding. She is now 7 mos and we still use the gym for her tummy time.

  • Title: The best baby purchase I've made to date!!!

    I first saw this gym while registering at Toys-r-Us before my baby was born. Because of the sticker price I didn't even consider adding it to my registry; however, once my son was born I realized how alert babies are at such a young age and how intriguing colors and patterns are to them. He didn't really have many toys and I felt he needed something fun to look at and learn about. While killing time in Toys-r-us I ran into this gym on display. After a couple of weeks of deliberating, my husband and I finally cracked down and purchased the gym. Let me tell you it was the best purchase we have made for our baby up to date! We also purchased the windchimes separately and I highly recommend them to anyone. At 2 months he loved staring at the colorful animals and was already kicking the windchimes with his feet. By 3 months he was grabbing the toys with his hands and batting them to make them swing. Around 4 months he started noticing his reflection in the mirror. The mirror is also slightly movable and he would push and pull the mirror while looking in it so he could see different things around the room. I could literally have left him on this mat for hours and he would have been completely content. We took it with us everywhere... to grandma's house, to visit friends, to playgroup, even to a Christmas party... and our baby was completely entertained. The animals unhook and we clipped them to our stroller for shopping trips. Our son has a cousin his exact age and they both loved this! It was so fun to watch them play on it, and for all you photo moms... pictures taken on this mat turn out really well because of the bright colors! Tiny Love is also very easy to work with. One of the lights burned out on the play mat (all of their products have a lifetime warranty) and they replaced the entire musical pad free of charge. They even have a website you can go to to order replacement parts ([...] click on ""contact us""). Our baby is now 10 months old so I (reluctantly) have cleaned and stored this away for our next baby. This has been the best purchase we've made. The only drawback I can think of is the price The only other thing to note is that when my baby was really young (like 2 months old)

  • Title: AWESOME

    I know that it isnt the cheapest one out there but my son loves it!!! He started playing on it at 5 weeks old and still plays with it at 6 months. Now, though, he does pull on the toys so much that the domes colapses, but he loves to let them go and watch all the toys shake. I think this is a must for all babies to play! Its great for tummy time, when they start lifting there head the toys do touch them but it didnt seem to bother my son. A definate must have toy!!

  • Title: Great gym, but more than you need

    I do love the gymini but I think the lights and music are overkill. We should have saved some money and gone with one of the less expensive versions. Our daughter loves to play with the hanging toys but she has no interest in the lights and music. After awhile it gets annoying since the music is activated anytime the baby kicks a certain spot on the mat (even when the music is turned off).

    My 3 month old received this as a gift from a family member. She LOVED IT. Her tummy time was exciting to her as she could lay and see all of the bright colors. The animals it came with are all darling and she loved them (LOVED to bird!). At 9 months, she still loves to crawl on it and touch the crunchy elephant ear and laugh, laugh, laugh!! I love the fact that the mat comes apart from the canopy and it is easily washable. I now buy this as my preferred baby shower gift!! And it plays music and has lights to keep baby interested!!

  • Title: Overstimulating

    My son is 4 months now and he prefers to just lay down on a regular blanket than to be in this gym. I like this gym more than he likes it! It is overstimulating for him. the colors and patterns are too much. there are too many toys and cross-bars above him that make him feel closed in. You really don't need any baby gym, just a regular blanket works wonders for me.

  • Title: Son loves it

    My son loves this his gymni. At first he would just stare at the animals but now that he is two months he loves to punch them. Sometimes he just grabs them and doesn't let go. But as soon as we put him on it he is moving around like crazy. He really hasn't shown an interest in the lights and songs but maybe later he will. It is a great when you need a couple of minutes to yourself.

  • Title: love this mat

    This is the best thing I bought for my little one, she loves it so much. My only complaint is that the colors faded a little after a few washes but my baby girl doesn't seem to mind. Her 1st birthday is very near and she still plays with the hanging toys. She especially loves the music and turns it on all the time. It is good (and convenient) that it takes AA batteries and it automaticaly shuts off after a while. She has spit up on and vomitted on it many times and it is easy to take apart and wash. We are expecting another baby very soon and I don't know what she will do when her brother is born, she may not want to part with it.

  • Title: Activity Mat

    When I got this as a gift I thought my baby would love it. We have tried introducing it to her several times each week since she was about 8 or 10 weeks old. She is 6 months old now and has never had much interest in it. The toys have always hung too low even when adjusted properly. It looks super cool but she is happier playing with an empty water bottle or plastic cup. I am hoping that our next baby will enjoy it more.

  • Title: Worth the cost - loads of fun

    This gym is so much fun - I know it's not cheap but it's been worth every penny. My baby is 6 months old and we've used it since she was born. Tummy time was made much easier with this. The mat itself crinkles and squeaks and really entertained her even at a few weeks old. First she just watched the toys hanging overhead. It's been amazing to see her develop to the point that she can play with the toys. For weeks she would lie on her back and play with them. It really motivated her to practice rolling over. Now that she's bigger we've taken the arms off and she plays with the mat. We've detatched the toys from the arms and she still plays with them. The one weakness is the music/lights. They're really cheesy so my advice is to pop in an actual Motzart CD if you need the music. The mat works fine without it. I've washed it several times in cold on the hand wash cycle and line dried. It hasn't faded at all. We'll be keeping this one for the next baby."

  • Title: Baby loves it..

    I bought this gym/playmat when my daughter was 3 months old. She loved it! She is now 6 months old now and she still plays on it sometimes, but she has hit her head on the plastic control panel that controls the music a number of times. The first time she did it she cried for a couple of minutes. If you buy this gym please keep in mind that this plastic control panel is a little on the bulky side and can hurt your little one.

  • Title: A worthwhile investment

    This is a great product. My baby loved this even when she was a newborn. She would often just gaze at herself in the mirror and liked listening to the music. She loved to swat at the hanging toys and once her motor skills were more developed, she could grasp on to them. I also recommend getting the wind chimes to go with this which is a great addition. Now that she has gotten too big for this (she can pull herself up by the bars which aren't really designed for that), we can use the mat alone as a play mat. The toys are all portable, and since she loves the monkey and giraffe most of all, and we never go anywhere without one of them. This is definitely worth the money.

    I bought this 2 weeks ago for my daughter who is now 3 months old. At first, she didnt seem interested in the toys and would cry after 10 minutes. Now, she loves to bat and grab on to the toys above her. I added the baby wind chimes (her favorite toy) which she can swing or kick at and they make noise, and I added a mirror above her so she can see herself while on her back. She likes to look in the mirror while on her tummy also. She doesnt seem to care about the music

  • Title: Versatile and effective

    I got this when my baby was 3 months old and she enjoyed just looking at the animals. Then she started to kick and wave and enjoyed seeing the animals swing. Then, all thanks to this toy, she learned to grab the animals and could really shake the whole gym. In each of these stages she stayed amused for quite a while. She stopped being content under the animals when she learned to roll around, because she often would roll into a corner of the mat and couldn't get around the bar. But even at 9 months she still enjoys it every now and then, for shorter periods. The mirror My one qualm is that the 10 continuous minutes of Mozart is the same song that has a very repetitive nature at that (I don't know what song it is but it's like an Invention/Canon/Variation for those that know--the same short melody Regardless

  • Title: interesting

    I bought this mat for my daughter when she was 3 month-old. She learned to kick, jab, grab and pulled the toys, especially the elephant, looked at herself in the mirrow and rolled over. But when she reached 4 months when she learned to roll over, she lost interest in it. I would say that it is worth the money, considering what my baby has learned from it. However, the recommended age from the manufacturer is not right. I would say it is suitable for babies up to 6 month-old.

  • Title: Best Money I ever Spent

    This product is the best product out there for babies. My firstborn was extremely colicky. She cried for 10 weeks straight with at least 3-4 hours of crying each night. At 3 weeks of age, my husband and I purchased her this product. It was the ONLY thing that kept her quiet. She constantly played on the mat. She was so occupied by the animals, that she was rolling over at 2 and 1/2 months! The music was also very soothing, especially at 3 in the morning when this was the ONLY thing that kept her quiet. She played with this mat until she was about 11 months old and was too busy crawling around. The mat came out once again about 2 months ago, when my second child turned two and a half months old. My oldest daughter (age two)quickly grabbed the mat, climbed under the crossbars and began playing with the hanging toys. She claimed that the mat was hers! She now enjoys lying beside her younger sister and "teaching" her how all the toys work. She names each animal, tells her sister the sound it makes, and then proceeds to show her how the toys work. Her favorites are the elephant and the monkey. This toy taught her some of the world animals as well as keeping her occupied. A GREAT INVESTMENT!!

  • Title: Pricey but worth it!!!

    My husband and I bought this Gymini when my son was 6 weeks old. My husband really didn't care to buy it because it was relatively expensive compared to the other play gyms for babies. But compared to the other gyms it offered so much more. After we bought it my husband had to eat his words because it is by far my son's favorite toy! He can entertain himself for up to an hour on this thing and there are so many things to pull and grab that he never tires of it. This is definately one toy I think everyone should get for their baby, or buy as a gift. You cannot go wrong with this toy and it is worth every penny!

    My 4 month old son has enjoyed this playmat since day one. It has grown with him: he use to just lay there and listen to the music and watch the animals. Then he began to reach for the animals, he spends some of his tummy time on the playmat and enjoys the lights and crinkley mat which he now puts in his mouth. The placement of the animals helps encourage him to roll over as he tries to kick and reach for them! Definitely worth the money!

  • Title: Best product for hours of fun

    My baby is 10 months old and has had this product since birth. He LOVES it! Of all the toys this is his favorite. Amazingly enough he learned to stand on his own using the toy for support and once he was able to do that he perfected his balance by shaking it to make the toys rattle. The fun is never ending with this product. I certainly didn't realize how useful it would be for so many months from a newborn laying to tummy to crawl to stand to shaking the crap out of it and learning to take the toys off. It truly is never ending fun (well at least not yet).

  • Title: The best gift yet!

    Grandma bought this wonderful playmat for my daughter, and it has been the best gift. We take it everywhere! I love the detachable, washable mat. My baby girl is now 5 months old and has been playing on the mat since birth. She hasn't gotten tired of it yet, and neither have I. She loves kissing her reflection in the mirror and the adorable animals, which she has learned to pull off the gym already! I also attach her Link-a-doos toys, which work quite nicely. My only complaint is that the mat doesn't stay folded between the bars of the gym when you are carrying it, and tends to flop down making it near impossible to unfold with one hand. I wouldn't care if it weighed a ton and wasn't portable; it would still be worth every penny and more for the developmental value alone.

    This Gymini is fabulous. My son has used it since he was six weeks old and now at six months old it is still one of his favorite activities.

Another great thing about it...it washes and travels well. I recommend this for all babies.

    I bought this gym for my son when he was 3 1/2 months old. He did not seem to like it for the first few days and now about 3 weeks later he will lay and play with the toys for hours at a time. I find the best thing for him is to place his favorite educational video/music CD in the recorder and put the mat in front of the TV so he spends his time looking at the video and playing with the animals (it buys me twice the time to do housework.etc.)He also loves to look at himself in the mirror and it has helped him to roll over. The only thing that we don't like is the repetitive nature of the music but otherwise it is a great investment for your baby.

    This toy is good for a range of developmental ages which makes it a good thing to have around from birth up. My son has gone from looking to batting to grabbing to pulling to sitting up and playing on it. Unlike a lot of his toys, he didn't have to grow into it and he hasn't grown out of it yet.

I used this playmat instead of a playpen at the bowling alley until he was about 5 months old because it was a lot lighter to carry around. I am now pregnant again and planning on using for this baby. It washes nicely and the first set of batteries were still in this mat and they still work, but I do plan on changing them when the new little one arrives.

    This is a great baby gym! I got it before my son was born and couldn't wait to use it! I bought the black and white set of toys from Tiny Love and hung those in the gym when my son was a newborn. At 2 months we put him in it and he was immediately drawn to the toys. He also liked to look in the mirror which encouraged him to turn his head. At 3 months we changed the toys to the original ones and added the wind chimes by Tiny Love. The wind chimes became his favorite! The toys are all so different that my son never gets bored. We are also able to add any toys that have loops on them to give my son a neverending changing and stimulating environment! Now that my son is rolling over and starting to scoot on his tummy My only complaint is that we washed it and it faded pretty significantly. However this is not at all a reason to not purchase this toy. It is well worth the money for how versitile

    My son is now 8 months old. The gym has been a favourite toy of his since he was only 2 months old. It's amazing to see how one toy can adapt as the child grows and as his motor skills and understanding develop. As he changes, he finds new ways to play with it.

  • Title: Should have bought this one first!

    This playmat is the best! I bought a different play mat that I thought would play music but you had to squeeze the toys hanging down to get the music to play ... meaning I had to be right there for my son to enjoy playing with the mat. With this mat he can activate the music himself. The mirror is great for tummy time. All of the toys make different sounds and you can move them around. I can't say enough about how great this is.

  • Title: Good Activity Mat - Annoying Music

    I do not know how a toy company can improve the music but I wish that they would try. The tone of the notes is limited to a small range and not very soothing in my opinion. I have given it a 4 rating however because my son enjoyed playing with the animals - especially the monkey - and because it is well contructed and held up to several washings. (f I had to do it all over again, I would probably look at a model that has a "tummy-time" cushion.)

  • Title: Best Purchase We Made!

    (...)this one is worth every penny! My daughter's almost 5 months old and we've had the mat since she was 3 months. At that age, she loved laying on her back and playing with the toys hanging overhead. And since the toys can also be taken off and used elsewhere (on her swing, in the stroller, on her car seat handle) they are super versatile and useful. She loves their colors and easy-to-grab legs and feet and ears. We also had received other Tiny Love toys seperately as a gift so we can switch the toys around a lot. I work at home two days a week and this mat always gives me some time to work--I can watch my daughter but she is completely entertained by herself on the mat. (The mat's also fun when mommy or daddy look down on you from above the toys or climb in with you to watch...) She gets sick of sitting in bouncy seats and swings too so the mat allows her to move and strech and feel things with her bare feet and her hands. Now that she's older

  • Title: This Gym is Wonderful!!

    This is truly a wonderful product. I highly recommend it. From the gentle yet stimulating colors to the soft calming music this gym has provided my daughter with hours of safe play and excersize, which allows mom or dad some time to get the dishes done, worry free. The gymini is also designed very well. It is extremely light weight, folds easily, great for travel, has a removable battery compartment for washing,(which also removes easily) and the batteries do not need frequent changing as the gym doesn't seem to need to much juice to function. Last but not least, you can purchase little additions that clip on and off with no effort at all and your baby will learn to swat and kick and roll over... it's wonderful! Excellent gym. Go for it, you should be very pleased. We were.

  • Title: Easy to fold, easy to clean!

    I love this play mat almost as much as my two month old does! It folds in half to fit easily in the trunk of my car for trips to "Grandma's," and it comes apart so that it's easy to wash. The mirror is large and amuses my baby to no end The music it plays gets tedious

  • Title: Cute Cute Cute!

    My 8 week old absolutely adores this play mat. Great for tummy time too! The little animals that hang are adorable and each has its own unique feature. The mat itself is also entertaining. There's a bird that squeaks when you push on it and the elephant's ear can be crinkled. The mozart music is pleasant and stays on for a good amount of time. I don't get sick of listening to it either. I was a little hesitant on buying this because of the price, but now that I see how entertained my baby is by it, it's worth every penny!

  • Title: Found a similar solution for half the price

    I received two gyms as baby shower gifts, this one and a cheaper $20.00 one. I compared the two and the only difference was the big mirror, the lights and music. I kept the cheaper one and bought the Baby Einstein crib mirror that plays music and lights up too. It works great with the gym and I can use it in the crib too. In the end it only came out to about $30.00, half the cost of this gym. Just wanted to pass on a money saving idea!

  • Title: Replacement Parts for Gymini

    I got this wonderful item two years ago for my first baby, and I just took it back out for my second. Unfortunately, the mat no longer was operational despite battery replacement. I finally tracked down the customer service people at customerservice@mayagroup.com and they responded as follows: "Thank you for contacting Tiny Love. We would like to apologize for any difficulties you may have experienced with our Super Deluxe Lights & Music Gymini. We would be more than happy to send you a replacement pat mat at no charge, which should fix any problems you are having with the Gymini." Now that's what I call service! I was pleasantly surprised, to say the least. I haven't received the new mat yet, but my new baby has been enjoying the colored mat, hanging animals and mirrors in the meantime.

  • Title: Nice to Have

    My uncle bought this for my son. It's very nice. When i put him down on it i lay him on his back and he will play with the animals and he loves to look at himself in the mirror. the best thing i like about it is it plays mozart music & nursery tunes. He likes the mozart better, but he dose get alittle crazy while playing with it i have to watch him or he will end up half way off it from kicking and moving so much. and you can also buy different toys for it to add on as they grow. It's very nice.

    My son Jayson is almost 3mths old, and he LOVES this mat!! This product is great, cause it is something he has used since he was about 4 weeks old, and he loves to stare at all the toys. Now he has discovered that he can kick them, and touch them,,,and the mirror he absolutely LOVES!!

  • Title: A MUST FOR YOUR NEW BABY

    This is by far the greatest gift we got! I don't know what I would have done without this! My daughter loved it so much. I first put her in it when she was 3 weeks old and she stared at the animals so intently. She would smile so big at the giraffe... It was too cute. It encouraged her to reach, swat, kick and grab at objects very quickly. And the mirror on the corner helped encourage her to roll over at an early age. The arches are removable (and should be removed once your baby can sit up) and the mat & toys are machine washable. It folds up nicely and I kept the original plastic bag it came in for traveling. Again, this is sooooo worth the money!! I would move the toys around all the time. And she loved the different textures. The giraffe and monkey are rattles, the parrot crinkles, and the elephant vibrates. There's another rattle and mirror too. She loved chewing on the monkey and giraffe feet! Perfect size for a little mouth :-)The mat itself has a crinkly elephant ear, zebra tail, squeeky bird, and musical flowers that light up. You can put the music on yourself, or they go on when your baby puts pressure on the music pad. The ONLY negative is that when it folds up I can't say enough about this - it helped me occupy my baby for hours. I just loved laying next to her while she played - or knew that she could entertain herself while I relaxed nearby. It has been a favorite for months - adapting to her development!! DEFINATELY BUY!!!"

  • Title: Wonderful

    My 8 week son is very active. He loves to move his arms and legs all day long. So, I knew a Play Gym would be perfect for him. He loves this one. He can kick and grab at the hanging toys for up to an hour. It's very colorful. There is so much for him to look at. Don't think for a minute that this is too busy or that there is too much going on. He makes all sorts of happy grunting and gurgling sounds, so I know he is being entertained. He isn't laying on his tummy very often yet, but that just means he can grow into this toy. I highly recommend this Play Gym!

  • Title: Just Gotta Have This+

    We let his granny purchase this wonderful gymmy(as we call it) for Christmas. Our son was just 3 months old. It was the highlight of the Christmas Day. He cooed and made sounds everytime the animals moved and the music played. His favorite animal was the purple dotted elephant. Before long he was pulling on it. He even discovered that it can be pulled down and will raise and lower itself. ( We the parents were amazed.) A definite must for your new growing infant. Full of stimulation and fun for hours. He even learned to roll under it. He is now 9 months old and as he got older he sat next to it and played with it from a different angle. It was light and versatile enough to travel everywhere with us.

    We bought this for my 2nd child when she was 2 mos old; we thought it was a little expensive but now it is worth every penny. From that day on, she loves to just lie down and stare at her friends. She now does tummy time and she absolutely adores the flower lights and the Mozart music. I highly give this a thumbs up!

    My daughter is the kinda person who needs major stimualation and rarely sleeps. This is the best toy out there. She can play forever and it relaxes her so much.

    I am certainly a bargain hunter and I "broke down" and bought this for my son a few weeks ago and he loved playing with it. Now he is 6 months old and is starting to sit up so now he seems to get a bit bored if he is on his back or tummy too long. I certainly wish I had gotten over my bargain hunt sooner and bought this earlier as he would have played with it much longer. + It folds up so nicely and can be thrown in the car quickly + The music and lights are great for tummy time + The mirror is large enough for him to see himself A great product."

    This is really a must have. Our son was not a fan of the bouncy seat or swing, but loves his playmats. He has this one and the Baby Einstein. He adores them both, but favors this one more. It is nicely padded and the toys are soft. The colors are visually stimulating and the music is enjoyable. It is easy to travel with and easy to wash (the mat/toys are machine washable). We love the smiles our son has when playing on this. This is one of the top must have baby items!

    I bought this mat for my 11 week old daughter, and was very disappointed at first with how little it held her attention (except for the mirror). Then at 12 weeks, she became absoulutely enthralled by it, staring at the animals and talking to herself in the mirror. Now at 14 weeks, she bats at the toys, plays on her tummy with the lights and laughs at the monkey, her favorite of the animals. I recommend it, but I also recommend that you be patient, and don't expect magic the first day. Give it time, you and your baby will get a kick out of it.

  • Title: choking hazzard

    When we first purchased the gymini we loved it, and so did our baby girl.That changed today. The purple elephant is a danger to all children. The shiny pink plastic on the bottom of the elephant can come off when put into infants' mouth! My daughter was sucking on the elephant and began vigorously choking.I'm sure this is not the first time this has happened. And if consumers continue to purchase this toy before this problem is rectified, it will surley not be the last!

  • Title: mom of 2 boys and a baby girl

    I loved this gym! I could not wait to put my daughter in it. She is now 2 1/2 months and she hates it! She is in it for about 30 sec before she starts crying. The toys hang down so low that they are touching her body and she hates it when it hangs in her face. I began thinking how is this product going to last untill she is 10 months old like the age says. If the toys touch her while laying down how is she going to push up on her arms or even sit up?? I returned this gym and bought a fisher price musical play garden and she loves it and it will last for a long time.

    This gym is great, our son has loved it from the first day he laid on it. He's four months old and still does tummy time on it. As with any toy, watch as your baby plays with the removable toys. I caught my son eating the elephant, and he almost choked on it. So be careful and watch your baby!

  • Title: Well Worth The Price

    I hesitated putting this gym on my registry due to the price but I'm happy I did (and grateful to the person who bought it for me). My 11 week old has had a rough beginning and this playmat was the only thing in the beginning I could use to stimulate and comfort him besides myself. His face lights up when he looks up at the brightly colored animals and he tries to bat at them. He even squeals in delight. The music is also great. Wish it would play continuously instead of stopping after 10 minutes but that's a minor thing. I'd highly recommend this to anyone. It's well worth the price and I was glad to read the reviews about the elephant and possible choking hazard. I will be aware of that as my child gets older.

  • Title: It gets better!

    We first tried placing my daughter on the Gymini when she was 3 weeks old and she freaked out. I think it was too much stimulation for her, being so little. We tried again when she was 6 weeks old and she loved it! She uses her "mini gym" every day now. There are so many great features. She grabs at the dangling toys and already has her favorite - the elephant that pulls down and winds back up. The music is fantastic - mozart or nursery rhymes. The floormat features are wonderful for her development - she tries grabbing onto the giraffe's tail to help herself roll over. It's also very easy to fold up and store away. This is a definite buy!

I didn't put all the toys on at the same time when my baby was an infant, it seemed like too much. I changed them out to keep her interested. She loves it! It has lasted through two babies. I love how easy it is too clean. You gotta get the chimes to go with this, they are wonderful!

    So portible and so entertaining. So many uses. When my daughter starting "seeing" things, I was able to put her on her back and she'd just stare at the dangling toys. Oh, she looovveess the giraff! She giggles when I shake it. When I pull the elephant down and put it in her hands and she releases it, her eyes get huge! I put her on her belly and, what do you know, she loves it! The mirror is fascinating to her. The crinkle noises and the squeak. The only semi negative thing I can really say is that I couldn't put her on this thing AT ALL until she could really see bc it was SOOO busy and way too stimulating for her when she was younger than 6weeks. But, that's to be expected at that young age. The music is a nice touch too.

  • Title: VERY ENTERTAINING

    This play gym is a bit expensive, but what isnt these days! This play gym is the best toy that my daughter has except for her sassy mobile with remote. She absolutely LOVES this play gym. She learned to roll over on this play gym and she is only 3 months and one week old. She was also born 5 weeks early so she should not be rolling over or grasping things yet, but this gym has helped her do everything that a normal three month old would do. She absolutely loves the monkey that hangs from the gym. The animals can be removed and the flowers light up and play music. Its great. She laughs at herself in the mirror too. Its just a great purchase...well worth the money!

I was very happy with it.

She is 6 months so hopefully she will stay amused with it;)

    If you're going to buy this, I recommend that you get it when you're baby is a newborn because it's quite expensive for a product that is only for babies up to 10 months old. I bought it when my baby was 3 months and now at 4 months she's already bored with it. She's rolling over, so it's not entertaining her as much as it did before. I wish I had it for the first 3 months. I think it would've really helped out!

  • Title: Best baby gift ever!

    I received this as a gift for my daughter and she absolutely loves it! This play mat is great for all the developmental stages - she was interested in all the toys as early as 1 month so that I could let her entertain herself for about 15-20 minutes at a time. The features on the mat also helped encourage her with "tummy time". At 3-4 months when she started scooting and rolling she seemed to enjoy the gymini even more. Now at 6 months she still finds new ways to entertain herself. Last month we had a problem with the electronics (not surprising since we get a lot of use from this). I contacted tinylove.com and they replaced it quickly and free of charge. Also It is definitely worth the money. And it is a fantastic present for a new mom. I recommend it to everyone."

  • Title: A bit expensive but a good toy

    My daughter loves to use the mat for tummy time. She likes the different textures and noises. However her favorite toy is the mirror which is perfectly situated at her level. It is expensive but I found it to be worth the extra time I get when she is busy playing. The only thing I worried about was the hanging toys had some open loops that my daughter would get her foot caught in when she was on her back. Moving the toys from where the manufacturer had them hung helped.

  • Title: Great Playmat

    We received this playmat as a gift in our first week home from the hospital. Being a new mom, and not knowing what all we would need, I didn't know how great this gift could be. I let it sit in the package for the first week when I finally decided to open it up. I put my son on it, and he LOVED it, at only 10 days old. He "danced" to the music by kicking his feet around, and was enchanted with the bright colors. He only lasted 10 minutes before fussing, but he loved it so much, I felt like I had been depriving him of stimulation by not using it sooner. He's now almost 4 months, and can go for 30-45 minutes on his mat with even more enthusiasm and interaction. We don't use a swing or bouncer seat, so this playmat is perfect when I need a moment with my hands free or to have the baby out of his Baby Bjorn carrier. It keeps him entertained alone for a minute until I can get on the floor and play on the mat with him. I'd give this playmat 5 stars

    We received this as a baby shower gift, never seeing it before. Once the baby was born we gradually introduced her tothe gymini. After a few weeks she was loving it. I was able to lay her on the mat and do dishes, go the bathroom and sometimes even take a shower. She would honestly play with for at least a half of an hour, thats impressive for an infant. The other great thing about it is that the toys come off and hook to most car seats. So you can have the little toys no matter where you go! I highly advise any new parent to purchase this for their little one. I have already bought two additional for friends babies.

    We have had this play mat for at least three months now and my son really enjoys it. I bought the mat to encourage my son to spend time on his tummy and learn to play while doing it...it worked. He loves the flowers that light up and play music and also the crinkle elephant ear. Now that he can sit up he also likes to sit and play with the activities on the mat or the toys dangling in front of him. Another plus is that the mat folds up for easy portability, keep the original packaging and transport the mat in it to keep the mat clean. My only regret is that I didn't buy this product sooner.

  • Title: Great Playmat

    This playmat is a wonderful toy. The dangling toys encouraged my son to reach up, and the mirror was what got him to roll over. The great thing about it is that you can easily pack it up and take it anywhere with you. The toys come off and attatch to the car seat. Also, what I liked about it is the fact that it can grow with your child. Now that my son is 11 months old I use the bottom as a little blanket for him to play on, plus he still loves the music playing in the background. As a new parent, I would highly recommend this toy. You and your child will get much fun and use out of it. It is also a great developmental toy, which is why we bought it.

  • Title: Deluxe waste of money

    I'll be frank here. I am a first time mom and I had/have a lot of misconceptions when it comes to babies. I naively believed my child would not suffer from colic because I knew how to handle colic. Well, I was a little off on that one, and I found myself with a colicky kid who didn't want to be put down for any reason... and I naively believed, then, that if I purchased the right flashy toy, he would get over this and let me put him down, and he'd be entertained and quiet and I could get something done around the house, or maybe I could sit and do nothing at all, a luxury I had no idea how much I would miss during my pregnant-and-looking-forward-to-baby days. So... even though common sense told me that this was a lot of money to drop on a playmat It wasn't. My baby was about a month old when we bought this... maybe a month and a half So... this toy did nothing for us. I don 't deny that your child may well love it... but I think that you need to be more realistic than I was about what it may or may not do for your child. If your child is actually showing an interest in dangly toys At any rate... whether it works or not... this is a hyped up and expensive product. The music that this toy plays is Also... aside from this one item ANYWAY... this is not necassarily a bad toy

  • Title: one of the best toys for our newborn

    As a new mom, I couldn't wait to play with my new son. I guess was a little naive, but I assumed he would be interested in rattles, storybooks, toys, etc, right from the start. So I was a little disappointed when all he did was eat and sleep. After about a month though, he started noticing bright colors, shapes, etc. and this activity mat became one of our favorite interactive activities. At 3 months now, he still doesn't really care either way about the music and lights, but he loves the hanging animals. His favorite is the elephant, because it can be pulled right down to his level. He is starting to bat at the toys (whether intentional or not, I'm not sure). We use this mat every day and he will lay on it for up to 30 minutes. We now use it for tummy time as well, but I think he likes being on his back better. One note - when I first started using the mat

    This was one of our all-time FAVORITE toys. So well-made, washable, etc. I love how there are so many positions for the toys so that you can customize it for your child. Our little boy didn't show much interest in it until about 2 months, but then it became a LIFESAVER! He could entertain himself for 20-30 minutes easily. Even now that he's too old to play on it, he still loves the toys and they're great to take with you anywhere or link to other things.

  • Title: A Must Have!!!!!!

    I agree that this gym is a staple in a baby's repitoire of toys. It is interesting to watch my now four month old son's milestones appear under the gym's arches. When he first came home from the hospital, he would stare at the animals while exercising under the arches. Later, he started batting them. Today, the grabs and pull those critters and he is just starting to roll under the dome. The side mirror also has played an important role in his tummy time! This gym has given me much needed breaks, upwards to 45 minutes, while stimulating my son! Best yet, stores easily against a wall once it is snapped together, so it is easy to hide behind a sofa or other piece of furniture when needed.

  • Title: Best toy for infants

    My son loves this toy! We bought it for him when he was 6 weeks old, and he spends every morning playing on it. At first, I left only two of the dangle toys on, since all of them at once seemed too scare him. I rotated through the toys, and have gradually added all the toys. He is now 5 months old, and still loving it. He loves to grab onto the different ones, and hear the different noises they make. The mirror is also great, as that is how he learned to roll over! And the music is great (I only play the Mozart. The nursery tunes are a little annoying). Isaac especially loves when I sing along!

  • Title: Sure, it's great, but overpriced!

    After reading all of the glowing reviews, I felt I should add my 2 cents. Yes, this is a very nice toy, but I don't know that I would go back and purchase it again if given the chance. My son preferred his swing and other toys to lying in his gym. Even on our bed supervised with his toys, he was much more entertained, and longer, than the gym. He does get a kick out of the lights and classical music, though. Before he had full control of his arms and hands, the hanging toys would just hit his face or bug him, and he seemed overstimulated if too many toys were hanging around--by that I mean scared, grumpy, and some times just uninterested. Now that he can grab, he yanks the toys right off, but if he's on his tummy hanging toys are just in the way. And now that he can roll he's off the mat very quickly. The one essential element on this gym is the rattle monkey!! I don't know one kid who doesn't love it Tummy time is important The bottom line is I don't mind spending the money on him if I'm getting a good value

    My husband and I registered for this gym, but we never got it. My mom and I were in BRU and I mentioned to her that our 6 week old daughter gets bored quite easily (seeing as though the only stimulation we had for her was her Kick N Play bouncer), so we purchased this gym. She loves it! She can easily lay under the dome and keep herself entertained for half an hour. She likes the music (more the Mozart) and the elephant is her favorite. I started out with all the toys attached and she seems to like it. I also attached a couple of her intricate rattles to make noises. All in all

  • Title: Must Have for Newborns! We love it!

    (original review 11/2004): Our son is 3 1/2 weeks old and already loves his Gymini Super Deluxe Light and Music activity mat. He enjoys looking in the mirror, listening to the music - Mozart and nursery rhymes and looking at the hanging toys. He enjoys the lights on the mat that light up in tune with the music and the crinkle and squeaking noise that certain parts of the mat and accompanying toys make. Today, he was staring in the mirror making the cutest faces and happy little sounds. The activity mat is great for "tummy time". The hanging toys encourage him to lift his head up. We look forward to watching him grow and enjoy the other developmental features of this product. One thing that we wish it would do is play the nursery rhyme songs for longer. The Mozart music plays for 10 minutes which is great but the nursery rhyme songs are about 30 seconds. Overall, a great value and great for newborns!

  • Title: Babies will have fun

    This play mat is really superb. It could be a little softer for tummy time, but then again, it will make your baby lift up her head! It really inspires reaching and grabbing and movement. I have watched my five month old go from looking to reaching to starting to roll. She really loves this mat/gym/thing. The music switch sticks a little, but I love this item.

  • Title: Highly recommend

    I like the variety this product offers it's not as bland as some other products on the market. It's brightly colored, there's enough hanging toys, the elephant stretches down and zips back up, I like the mirror that I don't see in other mats, and I like the lighted flowers that plays music. My child hasn't been engaged with the lighted flowers yet but sometimes I'll just put the music on while she bats at the toys. My child can only handle a little bit of stimulation before fussing so maybe this can overstimulate a child quickly. I'm not sure.

  • Title: Happy happy baby

    We were given the gymini deluxe as a gift when my baby was two weeks old and started using it when she was five weeks. I have never seen her respond so positively to any other product we bought for her. She just lights up when using it, twisting her head this way and that, responding with bright eyes to the mirror, the toys, the rattles. This product is a must buy and I highly recommend it.

  • Title: Luke loves his gym

    I have a four month boy old who plays on his gym daily. If we travel, it comes with us and helps Luke feel at home wherever we are. He loves to swing at the monkey and grab his toys, "talking" about it all the while. We put him on the mat so that his feet can activate the music pad, and he kicks so strongly now that we can hear him kicking the floor upstairs when we're downstairs. Admittedly, he tends to kick and play with his arms regardless of his surroundings, but he interacts very well with this gym, and for long periods of time - especially if we engage him with conversation about what he's doing or move his toys around. It's also where we like to spend tummy time.

  • Title: Best Gym Ever!

    This gym has it all-music, colors, attachments, things to play with on the mat! You can attach your own toys to the links too. Only thing is the nursery rhyme music doesn't stay on-it plays one and stops so you have to keep turning it on over and over again. I love it and so does my son from month 2 to 5 and still loving it!

  • Title: A definite buy!!!

    This item has been great entertainment for my baby. It has grown with her and is definitely worth every penny. All the toys are removable so she can take them whereever she wants. Also, this mat is very portable. It goes to and from the babysitter's every day without a hitch!

  • Title: A MUST HAVE

    The moment I put my daughter down she kicked and swatted at the dangling toys. I had never seen her so entertained and active. In fact, this mat got her to roll over! So, in my book it's worth any amount of money. It breaks down easy for travel and you can machine wash it. The music it plays is soft and pleasing. Skye likes to look in the mirror and "talk" to herself. Actually, she "talks" to the toys too. I rotate them to keep her attention. Only recommendation would be to purchase the kick wind chime. She loves kicking and grabbing it.

  • Title: My son's favorite toy/activity

    My son has loved his mat since he was born...he is 3 months old now and every week he loves it even more. I love the music and the different animals that have different rattles and sounds. Get this mat! Your child will love it."

  • Title: She loves it!

    My little one has been playing with this since she was about a month old. The gym grows with her - the hanging toys can be moved depending on how far she can reach and where she is laying. The parrot and elephant crinkle and she loves hitting/holding onto the toy with the rolling circles. The play gym has 3 flowers on its floor that light up and play music - this was the only way we could get her to start enjoying "tummy time". Plus, it folds up easily and doesn't take up much room. She is 5 months old and isn't even starting to tire of it!

  • Title: Longtime Entertainer

    I received this item as a baby shower gift and was curious to see if my daughter would get a lot of use out of it. I first put her on this at about a month old, which was a little too early. However, at 2 months old she fell in love with this toy. She loved to bat at the hanging toys and look at herself in the mirror. She is still loving it at 3 months old and is now learning to grab onto the hanging toys. She still loves to look at herself in the mirror! I put her on this everyday and she will happily entertain herself for atleast 30 minutes at a time. She also loves the music it plays. It plays nursery rhymes and mozart. I have not tried any of the others, but I can definitely recommend this particular toy with confidence. I feel sure that my daughter will be able to play with this toy for at least another month or two. I think it is very helpful in developing her coordination and muscles. I am recommending this playmat to all my expectant friends and hopefully this review will help you with your decision making!

  • Title: All of us LOVED this product

    My son was fascinated by this from the moment he laid on it (he was about 3 weeks old). It kept him entertained and I could actually get something done. He loved listening to the music! He ended up loving the bird that came with it. He would just stare and coo at it! He spent a lot of time on this mat, doing a lot of different activities. It was on the mat that he first rolled over and held his head up while on his tummy. This was an indispensable item to have!

  • Title: Long time use despite our resistance

    We didn't want this, didn't even see the need. But it was a hand-me-down, and we pulled it out at some random point when my won was 3 months, and dang! It was a hit! He loved the kick pad with lights and music and the dangly toys, and we got our first few minutes without constant attention to his mercurial mood. He was happy! And the thing is compact enough to fold away at the end of the day if you're so inclined-- we kept it out semi-permanently. He's long outgrown this pad

  • Title: Okay

    It is not as great as everyone is making it out to be. The hanging toys bang the baby in the face when he hits them. They hang to low. Only one part of the mat lights up. Doesn't do enough for $60.

    This play gym is great!! My son loves it! We actually registered for another gym and recieved this gym as a gift. At first we were going to take it back, but then decided to keep it for when we went to our parents. We used it one day when the other gym was in the washing machine and have not put it back in the closet!! My son loves it and it entertains him for hours. The music and lights are great for encouraging tummy time and the pull down toys are fantastic! My son is now 4 months old and we use it everyday!

  • Title: Wonderful!

    Great, great first toy. I have twins, and this has been a great mat for them to discover new things to do, such as grabbing, feeling, etc. It also helps them immensely with tummy time. Instead of getting frustrated, my girls look at the vibrant colors or the mirror on their tummies while lifting their heads. Fabulous gift!

  • Title: I'm only sorry I didn't get this sooner!

    I didn't get this until my baby was 5 months old, but he still enjoyed it for a while. He especially liked the light up flowers and music. It has two different settings He also liked the crinkly elephant ears. He's one of those babies that loves crumbling paper Someone complained that the toys hung in the baby's face The vibrating elephant was sure to get him giggling every time! The only downside was he wasn't quite old enough to really understand what made the elephant go. I've found that to be a common theme among baby toys; they're way to advanced! They can always be taken off the arches to be used as individual toys The arches snap in the middle and are very stable. They fold down and make the mat easy to store and transport."

  • Title: This was a wonderful shower present!

    My 5 month old really likes to play on this mat. She absolutely loves the mirror. The mat folds up easily and came through the washer and dryer without fading or shrinking. There is no need to buy a red, white, and black mat because by the time baby is interested in the mat, she will be able to see colors. Although we used the mat for "tummy time" from the beginning, she really wasn't intrigued by it until about 3 months. Now she rolls around on the mat, happy on her stomach or back because there is so much to look at. But even if you never use the mat, the toys that come with it make this a worthwhile purchase. We have attached them to her carseat, pack and play, and her stroller. They amuse her to no end!

  • Title: Funtastic baby stimulator

    I registered for the playgym after reading all the reviews & I have to agree that this gym by Tiny Love is GREAT!! As a newborn, my son loved looking at the animals bright colors and as his different developmental stages has continued this mat has encouraged him to develop. For example the mirror has been a great tool for him to do his exercises on his belly as he looks at himself & babbles. He loves to pull down on the elephant & watch it spring back up which helps him with upper body strengh etc. When he started sitting & teething he liked to sit & knaw on the teething ring. As you can see, I am sure you get my point so I won't go on. I received the boppy 2-in -1 gym as a gift & although it has helped keep him occupied while I am getting ready for work& he doesn't enjoy it like he does the Gymini.

  • Title: Over rated

    I had received this at my baby shower. She is now almost 4 months, the only thing she really likes is the blinking lights, but only for a few minutes. The mirror is a joke, she has alot more fun when I'm holding her looking in the bathroom mirror. Every baby is different on what they like to look at and play with. Now I think it's really cool, if I were her age, I'd love it, but oh well:o(

  • Title: Wish I Was Small Enough!

    Echo what everyone said that was positive -- very fun! Soooo many different ways our lil one uses this that it can entertain for quite awhile. We started her on it right away and still at 7 months she's crawling through it (months 2-6 were peak). The hanging toys are really neat and like everyone has said you can take them along for more fun elsewhere. Folds flat under our couch when not in use easily and have had no problems cleaning up baby puke with a wipe.

    Out little one absolutely loves this!

He'll play with it for an hour at a time, all the while squealing and chattering in delight! I did buy the kick chime accessory, which definitely adds to the charm & entertainment value. This toy definitely deserves all the awards it received & gets an A+ from our family! :)

    We got this play mat when my son was three months old and he loved it from day one. He loves to reach and kick the toys. Now he is flipping over on his tummy and discovering the fun stuff on the mat itself. He loves to look at himself in the mirror. He recently discovered the squeeky toy inside the mat and kicks up his feet to hear the squeeking sound. The classical music is a delight and so calming. Its easy to travel with and easy to machine wash. Its very sturdy also. I had another mat which had flimsy suport bars that my child kicked apart in a few days

  • Title: This was my sanity saver!

    The day after we brought the baby home, I put her on this mat and she was in awe of the blinking lights and music. It gave me 20 minutes to shower and get dressed. There was no other place to put the baby while I was alone with her without her fussing. Mat worked its magic every time! As soon as she was on it, I knew she would be happy. She used this mat continuously until six months of age. I got LOTS of gifts for my shower and this is one of the top 3. (Fisher Price Kick and Play bouncer was also a HUGE help, as were Einstein Videos.)

  • Title: The best ever

    My sister gave us this toy. My son is 4 months old. He stays so content with this activity mat. I love that there are additional holes to switch different toys using links. He loves to lay on his stomach at look at the flowers that light up. This product washes wonderful. I wash it at least twice a week and it has really held up(let air dry). I can't believe how fast his fine motor skills have developed by using this mat. Of course he loves the mirror as all babies do. This is a must have for every baby, helps parents too! This is a life saver when you are at home by yourself. I know he is safe if you have to run in the other room for a moment. The toys that come with it keep my son so occupied. He bats at them or pulls at them. He is very strong so I can tell you that he loves to pull on the giraffe's legs. It is made very well. We have bought and received many toys but this one is the best ever!

  • Title: Fabulous Toy!

    My little girl (4 months) is just starting to love this mat. She hated tummy time for a few months...but now she likes laying on her stomach and watching the lights on this mat. She also really enjoys batting at the toys. She is not yet able to keep ahold of rattles and toys herself, so it is wonderful to have these arches with suspended toys. By playing with this, she seems to be learning how to grasp for things. It also seems to be encouraging her to learn how to "roll." When she is on her back and catches a glimpse of herself in the mirror, she tries her darnest to roll over to get a better look. I'm sure she is going to make it all the way over one of these days! :)

  • Title: Great for development

    I bought this mat as my first real baby purchase on one of my first days out of the house after my son was born. I was quite sleepy when I bought it did not really know which activity mat to buy but I chose this one and so far it is great! I had no idea how much we would both end up enjoying it. I initially just put him down on the mat next to my dining room table to see if it would quiet him while I ate breakfast but both my husband and I got drawn in to his reaction to it and now I spend every morning eating my breakfast on the floor next to the baby while he discovers new things and coos. We have used it for just over a week and he has already discovered how to grasp the mirror to move it around After we showed him that he could touch the different animal toys he started to bat at them on his own and now tries to grasp them. He is now just over 6 weeks old (but was more than 4 weeks premature) and I am amazed at how this toy seems to be helping his coordination. I have used this mat interactively with him by playing with objects myself and then moving his hands to the objects and then seeing if he will repeat the action. So far

  • Title: Great from the first day

    We set this up when we brought our baby home from the hospital. It has lots of bright colors that newborns can see and lots of great toys and textures for when they develop more. Two perpendicular arches over the mat have holes to fasten animals (monkey, giraffe, elephant, parrot) that rattle, crinkle, stretch or shake and a teething ring with beads. The mat has fun colors and textures too. It has an elephant ear that crinkles, a felt tail on the giraffe and a felt mane on the zebra, and a bird that squeaks. There are also flowers that light up when music is played. Pressing down on the flowerbed starts the music, and you've got a choice of Mozart or nursery rhymes. Unfortunately, after three months this stopped working properly. It stayed on all the time (even when we turned it to OFF) and the batteries soon drained. Aside from this problem, we love the mat. As a newborn, we could set my son on it to take naps. As he got older, he started admiring the colors and reaching for the animals hanging from the arches. It's great for tummy time too. He loves looking at the animals that are on the mat, grabbing the elephant ear and flowers and looking at himself in the big mirror that's in the corner. Also, the mat washes up so well. Spit up comes right out of it and none of the colors have faded one bit in the ten times I've washed it.

  • Title: Great From Day One

    I got this mat as a gift from my co-workers 4 days before my daughter was born. Though she prefered to spend time in her vibrating bouncer those first days at home, we occasionally laid her on the mat when she was in an active and awake state, playing the Mozart music for her. After about a month she started trying to reach for the toys. By two months of age we realized that she loved being laid across the mat diagonally so she could easily kick the bottom of an arch, making her toys swing. She would get really happy and excited doing that. The first time she rolled from her back to her tummy was on her mat, pushing off on one of the arches with her legs. Now she is six months old, and still uses her mat every day. She's learned how to turn the music on (not by pressing on the mat, but my kicking at the switch) and she's now getting the strength to pull the elephant down (which wiggles back up once she lets go). The elephant's feet are the perfect size for little fists, but she takes turns loving each toy. They all have something special about them. We even hook them to other toys, of differing brands.

    My son seems to have taken a liking to this playmat than any other. I had a borrowed one from a friend that was the black and white and red colors. It only had a few hanging toys and that was it; pretty boring. This one has the lights At 4 1/2 months

    We did not purchase this item for our son. It was given to us as a hand-me-down from friends with three children of their own. Still, we didn't know what to think..."An activity mat? It's just a mat with some toys that dangle from some bars...what's the big deal?" After our son was born He's three months old now and teething. Again One thing that I didn't know is how expensive the toy is. I guess it's not the greatest value but it really is a great toy."

  • Title: Great mat all around

    This is one of the best play gyms I have seen. I registered for the Baby Einstein mat, got it and got this mat as a gift. I set both up and compared each, I quickly returned the Baby Einstein mat. This mat is easy to set up and put away, it has lots of dangling buddies to keep my son entertained, the ear of the elephant and tail of the giraffe also stimulate my little guy and the flowers make music when he kicks them. Best of all, I bought the wind chimes and hung them on and he loves them. This mat is so great because you can easily change the dangling animals and keep things new and exciting for baby. Plus you can take the dangling animals and put them on the car seat for added use/value. I highly suggest this play gym, your baby will love it!

  • Title: Mom of twins...this is a total life (and sanity) saver!!

    I bought this mat when my twins were about 8 weeks and let me tell you, this was the smartest buy I've made so far! They absolutely love it, and the toys hanging down entertained them so much when they were younger that I used it as my "babysitter" for each twin while I was nursing the other twin. I have to split my attention between the babies all the time, but the Gymini gave me the peace of 15-20 minutes without any crying by the baby not being fed that I could totally and completely focus and have one-on-one time with the baby I had in my arms. My twins are now almost 10 months old, and it is still their favorite activity...you can switch out and attach an almost endless variety of toys to it, so each time it's like a brand new experience for the baby!

  • Title: now, really.........

    Well, we bought this gym because it is very cute and full of bright colors, the toy animals are very adorable, it plays music and has fleshing lights! And we really gave in to the advertisement of "3 stages for child development." Now, the only three stages we were able to identify were "1) not interested 2) interested for about a month 3) not interested again" :). I know I am being a bit sarcastic but really... Plus, once you put the baby in the gym, the toys are dangling way too close to baby's face,which makes a little baby (1-3 months) a bit confused. Our baby didn't know where to look and got tired very quickly of all this "STUFF" hanging around her. Now that she is older,the gym is more interesting to her but she is much more interested in toys of this kind that have fewer toys, toys that are smaller. I can say with certainty that if I didn't have a gift certificate to pay for it, $60 is too much for something like this. Getting a cheaper alternative with fewer and smaller toys would have been a better choice.

  • Title: I wish I hadn't...

    I was totally set on purchasing this product before my son was born. It is so adorable and I could just picture him laying there and playing with the different things on the mat. Well, was I in for a surprise. My son could not have cared less about this thing. He much rather preferred laying on a blanket with a boppy pillow and placing some interesting toys in front of him. Oh well, live and learn - but a pricey one at that! I can say the only thing my son enjoyed (and still enjoys) about this thing is the little giraffe rattle that comes with it. He loves that thing. But jeez - what an expensive rattle!"

  • Title: Nice for Tiny Babies

    This was a great toy for when my daughter was very small. I would lay her under the toys while I grabbed a quick bite to eat or folded laundry. She liked to swat and grab the toys and listen to the music. Once she started rolling around it lost its usefullness. She became tangled in the bars that hold the toys up and would get mad. The chimes accessory are a must, they hang nice and low. They were the first thing my daughter grabbed and shook.

    Great product for my son. I got this when he was two months and now he's five months. Its soft material so he can comfortably lie on it. He loves the crinkly animals, especially the parrots wings. Moreover, it's a good thing for him to have "tummy time" on. There is interesting decor on the mat for him to look at when he's on his tummy. Also, the mirror keeps him entertained. A little pricey, but I've got a lot of use out of it. My only complaint is it would be better to have a little more variety in the song.

    This play gym was a gift to our first born son, only a few days old of course he was not interested but after a few weeks he lived on it! It was great as a play gym and when he outgrew it we hung the mat on the wall above his changing table for entertainment during changing time, he loved to turn the music on as we were laying him on the table. We are now using it with our second son and it is great. It has been awhile though since we have used all the little animals so we are missing some and I can't find the mirror it came with. My only complaint is the little extra hangy animals are a bit exspensive, but what isn't these days!

    This gym was great for my little one. She loved to look at the animals, and when she was facing the mat she loved to play with the zebra's (or lion's?) tail.

  • Title: Very cute but AWFUL music!

    This gym is wonderful in every way except for the music. The touch sensitive pad is unpredictable and the music is out of tune just enough to make anyone with the slightest musical background cringe and want to run away. My husband and I can't really figure out why the music is that way. We tried changing the batteries right away and it made no difference. I'm going to try to call the company and maybe they'll send me a new one and it will sound good? I just don't know. The toys are GREAT. My daughter LOVES the mirror which is the best item I think. She also loves the crinkly elephant ear and the long legs of the giraffe. --update: The company sent us a new musical insert for the gym and the music was in a different pitch but STILL out of tune! I mean REALLY out of tune. This is not a petty complaint. Please look at the other play gyms out there."

  • Title: A MUST HAVE

    I love this play mat and we couldn't make it through the day without it. My baby loves to look at herself in the mirror and bat and kick at her "friends." The Tiny love wind chimes are a must on this gym they have such a soothing sound and I love the look on her face when she realizes that they make sounds when she moves her legs. Our little one hates the bouncy chair, the car seat and any other contraption except her swing and THIS play mat so I wouldn't trade it for the world. I personally find the music to be annoying so we just play our own music. This mat is really expensive but keep an eye out we got a second one for Grandma's house at a garage sale for $7.

    We just received this gym for our 5 week old daughter. We went out and bought the Baby's Wind Chimes Kick Toy that can attach to the mat since our daughter loves to listen to music. Immediately, she started to kick the chimes and spends a half an hour playing on the mat giving us much needed time to eat, shower, wash, etc. The animals are cute and colorful. She is just starting to investigate them with her hands. The mirror is a bit distorted but she still enjoys looking at herself"

  • Title: My baby loves it

    My baby has always loved her gym and still at 9 months old finds new ways to play with it. Her favorite toy of all is the giraffe that comes with the gym. She just loves to pop it's feet in her mouth. Tiny Love is a great company and gaurantees all its products for life. My music mat went out and they sent a new one no questions asked. I also recomend buying the chimes and adding them to your mat. They make a great non irratating noise and my daughter loved them. A great buy.

  • Title: Best one of them all!

    I think we received every single play center offered in this website, but this one is by far the best! My baby loves it. He will not get tired of playing with it. The music chimes, sold separately are also a must. I suggest that if you want to registed for the best one, this is it. It is good for tummy time and for playing on their backs.

  • Title: Excellent play gym

    This is a great play gym. Our kids loved it from about 3 months on. It has a lot of great features like a mirror, cute animals on the mat (which they like to look at), a monkey rattle, a giraffe rattle, an elephant whose trunk expands and vibrates, lights and music. We even loaned this to friends and their child loved it as well. I washed it about 5 or 6 times and it has held up very well. I washed it on cold and dryed it on low. I recommend this toy as it is very entertaining and it folds for travel."

  • Title: Wonderful Product

    My daughter absolutely loves her playmat. She usually doesn't like to be laid down, but she will play on this mat for about twenty minutes at a time. It has great music and light-up-flowers that she loves. Also, she used to hate being put on her tummy, but now she can lay on her tummy and watch herself in the mirror or watch the lights. I highly recommend this playmat against others!

  • Title: Glad I got it

    I am not the type to pay this much for a toy but I found it second hand. After having it, I do think it's worth it's money IF you get it early enough. It's important to get these type of toys early..long before they crawl if you want your money out of them. What I've noticed the most is how my daughter is progressing. At first, just the mirror kept her attention when she was 6 weeks. After a month has passed, she now reaches for the toys. Now she will sit and reach for them and pull them or kick them and just giggle and talk to herself...letting me have 15 mins of peace to take care of something. What makes this one different from the rest is that there also is music. The mozart it plays is decent but the nursery tunes are annoying only in the fact that you have to keep touching the mat to get a different one to play when one is finished..the mozart one keeps playing. For now The mat stopped working almost immediately. I wrote tiny love and can't tell you how wonderful enough their customer service is. I explained the mat had stopped working and they sent me another one free of charge within the week! We are back to enjoying it. Definitely worth the buy out of all the things I've got for her. The only other toy that comes close to being worth this type of cash is the smartsteps evenflo exersaucer."

  • Title: I can't believe I paid 60 bucks for this

    My kid was overwhelmed at first by all the hanging toys and fussed the first few times we put her under them. I stuck my head in there with her, and it does feel a bit claustrophobic because all the animals are all up in your business. I removed some of the lower-hanging creatures, and she seems to like it better. The strangest thing--the nursery rhyme music really creeps me out. It's off-key or flat or something The Mozart is a little better You might think I'm just cracking wise

  • Title: not bad, but not great either

    I was looking for something that would help my son to enjoy tummy time and encourage him learn to crawl. Unfortunately, this didn't do the trick. The music feature is fairly nice The mirror feature was a big selling point for me The bottom line is: He got bored very quickly when I put him down on this mat. It was alot of money to spend on something we never use."

  • Title: Great Toy

    I bought this gymini based on the recommedation of other reviewers and I was not disappointed. It is well made, toys are colorful and interesting (unlike other gyms I saw). My four month old gets very excited when he plays with the gymini. Another great thing about this product is that my son gets so tired from all the kicking and playing that he goes to sleep faster and I get a little time for myself.

  • Title: Fantastic!

    This is a must-have. This play gym is wonderful. Our daughter has enjoyed hours "playing with her animal friends" in the Gymini. We purchased extra rings to bring the toys closer when she was smaller, which made it more interesting for her. The mat has so may features to keep her entertained during "tummy time." It is very easily foldable and we have taken it to friends' homes as well as on trips. Extra toys are available, including a great octopus which was a big hit with our baby. It is machine washable and didn't fade at all when washed. It is a little more expensive than some others, but well worth the money.

  • Title: Great toy from the start

    My baby is only 3 weeks old and she really enjoys this toy. She is just getting to the point where she likes kicking and swinging her arms. We put her where she can hit and kick some of the lower hanging toys and you can already tell its helping her focus her eyes and follow the toys. She has also started making happy noises while on this mat. We would recommend this to anybody.

  • Title: WONDERFUL

    This toy is just wonderful, from the moment they are just newborns and on. My daughter is 5 mo's and is now enjoying the fact that she can reach the toys, but before she would lay there and just talk to the toys. the mirror is wonderful since she loves to look in mirrors *typical girl* :-) I go to school on line and can't always have her in the swing where I can't see her or her walker, so I lay the mat on the floor in the computer room and she just plays for at least and hour or so. Nevery gets bored. Erica"

  • Title: Baby Loves It!

    We bought this when our baby was four weeks old. That was a bit young, I think, but now at 12 weeks, he is starting to really enjoy the mat for short periods of time. He really isn't into tummy time, so the crinkle pad and the mirror aren't really useful yet, but he loves the animals. The colors enthrall him and the elephant, which pulls down and "crawls" up, keeps him occupied and happy.

  • Title: One of the only toys an infant needs!

    I bought this because I saw the amazing reviews on it. I was not dissapointed at all! From the time they are about three months old (this is just my experience) to about the time they take off and crawl, my children loved the stimulation of this toy. The overhead mobile items are great to stimulate in different ways and both my daughter and my son had "favorites" and kept gazing at specific ones. They loved figuring out how to make the music come on and my daughter interacted with my son (they are 19 months apart) while he was laying on the mat and she could sit and show him the objects above him. It really is one of the best toys we have purchased. You can move it easily from room to room

  • Title: Enjoy watching baby learn during the early months

    It's been a lot of fun watching my 3 month old discover all the different features of this playmat. At only a few weeks, she would just stare up at the dangling animals. Now she holds on to them with each hand and kicks at whatever she can reach to get all the dangling animals going at once. She also recently discovered the mirror during tummy time and loves it. I highly recommend this toy to help stimulate your baby's brain and hand/eye coordination.

  • Title: Perfect for Entertaining & Development

    We put our son on the matt starting at about 4 weeks. He is now 15 weeks and is still thoroughly entertained by it. The hanging animals help to develop hand / eye coordination, and the dangling feet make good teethers. The one negative we found is that it lacked much feet activity compared to some other mats that have foot-driven ""piano"" type functions. We have added a hanging set of chimes that can be bought separately and he really loves to kick them to make noise. We use the matt every morning to keep him entertained while we get ready for work. He gets a good workout and we get out the door on time."

  • Title: Cute and entertaining!

    Our son is now 4 and a half months, and he still likes this playmat. He likes to kick the pad and hear the music play, and there are lots of toys to bat around. The only small issue I have is that he really has to kick hard to start the music. When he was less than 2 months, he didn't kick hard enough to make the music play very much. It would also be nice to have two choices for volume. The sound is quite loud. Other than that, this is a great choice.

  • Title: Best Playmat Ever

    This is the best playmat ever. We first had the Whoozit Gym to Go by Manhattan Toy Company and found that baby could not reach the toys. We tried to place her so that she could kick at the legs and therefore move things around a bit but she would get so frustrated that she would cry. This one is entirely different. She is able to touch the toys and you can move them around. Each toy has a different action, sound or feel. She is still finding new things that excite her and for the most part we haven't even begun to use the music feature yet. This is probably because it isn't very loud. But in any case we still love it. We put Lara down and instantly she was able to have fun. WE went from two minutes alone to 20 mnutes alone in about two days. Enough said!!

  • Title: Brilliant!

    After reading reviews I decided to register for this playmat and have not regretted it for one moment. My daughter (currently 8 weeks old) loves it and she's discovering new parts of the playmat all the time. I'm sure that this playmat will keep her entertained for a long time yet as it has many features which she has still to explore. The brightly colored toys, the music and the flashing lights make it fun for us to play with her on this mat (I happen to think this is also important). We enjoy shaking the frame making all the toys jiggle.

  • Title: The Best Playmat and Brand!

    My daughter (2.5 months) loves the mat. We even bought the next biggest one for her to use at daycare! We also bought the wind chimes. She loves to play for at least 1, usually 2, times through the music. She is able to kick and grab the toys. She just grins from ear to ear at the yellow giraffe. Her favorite! The music modes are great. The different textures and sounds are great. She loves the mirror! It's very adjustable and folds nicely for storage and travel. Like I said, we loved the first one so much, we bought a second one. I was hesitant at first about the money, but it's well worth it!

  • Title: Love it!!!

    Both my baby and I LOVE this toy!!! When my baby was just one month old he loved to lay under the toy bars and just stare and stare. He would literally lay under there for an hour at a time! (True, he is a pretty mellow baby, but still...). When he hit about three months he started swatting and pulling on the animals legs, and of course the first place they would go is his mouth. Now that he is 5 months old he likes to be more upright, so I lay him under there on his Boppy so he can play and see what's going on at the same time. This toy still holds his attention, though not for quite as long as when he was younger, but he still enjoys it very much. It was well, well worth the money!

  • Title: Mother of Twins Loves it!

    I am a mother of 4 month old twin girls and we received ours as a shower gift when the girls were about 2 1/2 months. Up until that point I had nothing stimulating like that. We had the boucy seat and all its great stuff, but nothing like this. My girls love it. The great thing is it is big enough to lay both of them under it w/out hitting or even touching each other. They can lay under there for 30-40 minutes at a time. The only thing we have done is added a few more link-a-doos and some more toys that are better for babies teething, but it has been great! A great product! Recommended washing w/ soft detergent and hanging it up to dry. Good as new!

  • Title: Great Product!

    We took the poles off for when he was little. He basically just slept on it during the first few months of his life. Then when he was learning to roll over he had "tummy time" on the mat. It's great because of the different fabrics, the noises and the music. Now he loves the toys. We put the poles back on and he loves this thing! He pulls at the toys with his hands and kicks the toys with his feet! He also loves the mirror! The best is everything is bendable and soft so he can go nuts with it and it doesn't hurt him. He even gets tired under it and often naps! I would get this again in a second!

  • Title: So many things for your baby to discover

    This toy is a great value. For the first 4 months we used it every day. After 8 months our son still plays with it. It was such a pleasure to see him discover so many things for the first time playing with this toy. * At 2 months he would just study the animals hanging above. * At 3 months he started to reach for the toys. He especially liked the multi colored feet on the Giraffe. He also liked to fondle the crinkly wings of the parrot and ears of the elephant. * At 4 months he started kicking and discovered the noise the elephant ear on the mat makes * At 5-6 months he regularly rolled over * At 7 months he started to play with other toys so I put the mat away * At 8 months I took the mat back out and he now crawls to it from across the room to play. He mainly plays with the mat (not the hanging toys) and the mirror. * At 9-10 months I put the mat in the attic In addition to being an engaging toy

  • Title: My 3 year old recommends it!

    We got this for our daughter when she was an infant. She loved it and used it happily for several months -- the mirror, the squeaky bird, the crinkly wings -- we often detached the toys and took them along for car rides. When she started walking, we put the gymni away, but kept out the hanging toys, which she played with until she was about two. One day, I was putting away some older toys, and she saw me put the Gymni in a box. She protested loudly, and grabbed it. She wanted to just lie on the mat with a book and play the music. So we left it out. Now that she's three, even though she hasn't played with any of the parts in ages, she saw a picture of it on this website as I was looking for a gift for a pregnant friend. Without being asked or prompted, she said "Mommy, that's a good toy." I asked her if I should get it for our friend's baby. She said "Yes. That's a really, very good toy." Look if the kid likes it well enough to recommend to another baby, who am I to refuse?

    We got this as a gift when our son was about 6 weeks old. We love it. We can take the toys off and add them to his bouncy chair toy bar and we can move them around on the play-yard. He loves the animals, which each have a fun noise. They keep him mesmerized. It's easy to disassemble and take with you, too. That's a plus. The mirror is also a big hit with him. I would definitely recommend it to a friend!

    I love this gym for my little one! He loves it now, and he's only 7 weeks old, and I'm sure it's going to grow with him. The animals that hang over the arc, he just loves to stare at, and the fact that they are detachable makes it easy to takes his favorites with us. The mirror slides around the arc too, so no matter where he wiggles to I can put the mirror to where he can see it.

    I bought this item for my daughter when she was 3 months old and it has been a lifesaver for entertaining her so I can get things done around the house. She is 5 months now and is still very interested. She will play on it for up to 30 minutes and at times falls asleep on it and will take a short nap. The music/lights part of it quit working after 6 weeks but after one call to Tiny Love I received a brand new part in the mail in just a few days at no cost! Wonderful customer service! This part also removes very easily for throwing this mat in the washer. I change her on it as well when necessary. It has really been great to take along for something familiar and entertaining to play on as she has been in the separation anxiety stage for a while. This really seems to help her adjust to a new place. I love it and would highly recommend it. A great product - well worth the money!"

Her 'favorite' toy on it varies from time to time, but she has been fascinated by the elephant, the monkey, and the giraffe at different times. The rattle is another favorite and has encouraged her to reach and grab. And you can always add your other favorite toys to the rings - we put our Whoozit toy on there much to her delight. Overall is is a great baby item and probably the one that gets the most use in our home!

    I purchased this gym because it seemed to have a larger mat and more activities than the Baby Einstein Play Gym. On its maiden voyage, the green flower's light quit working. I changed the batteries, but this didn't help. It had been on for less than 5 minutes. Also, I didn't have it on long enough to complete the "10 minutes of classical music", but I believe it only plays one Mozart song, which seems to be very repetitive.

    My daughter loves this playmat. Even at just a month old she was intrigued by the colorful animals dangling above her. Now at 4 months old, it has become part of our morning routine. After she has breakfast, she goes down on the mat for some playtime while I eat my breakfast and clean up the kitchen. It keeps her occupied for a good 20 minutes so I can get things finished. She loves to bat at the toys and grab onto them to put them in her mouth. The music sound is good and the mirror is nice and big so my daughter can see herself easily. There are also lots of different textures/crinkles/squeaks that are great for tummy time. We had a different playmat for our son and it didn't get much use. This one is a winner! I am so glad I bought it!"

  • Title: Entertaining

    We recieved this as a hand me down from our neice. We tried our son on it when he was 1 month old but at the time he wasn't very interested in it. He is 3 months old now and enjoys batting at the animals and kicking them. He can even grab them and hold on to them now. It usually keeps his interest for atleast 15 minutes. There are 2 reasons I didn't give it 5 stars. The childrens song setting is not continuous so you constantly have to restart it, however the classical music setting is continuous (but the song is a little annoying to me). The other thing that bothers me is even when you turn the switch to off if something (like our chihuahua) bumps it the music still plays (this has woke up my baby before)- not a big deal if you don't have a curious pet.

    We received this for our second sons birth and he loves it! The mat is machine washable and has a lot of features. There is a mirror that is attached that helped encourage him to work on lifting his head. As he got older he liked the different textures on the mat (Zebra's mane, crinkly ear) and the toys. I didn't realize this at first but all of the toys do something different. The elephant vibrates, the giraffe rattles, the monkey stretches, the parrot spins around and they rings move round on the other toy. We even detached the toys and put them on the carseat if we had a lengthy ride or shopping to do. The music is okay, only has two settings so it seems a bit redundant after awhile and gets annoying but otherwise, this toy was a great gift!

    I bought this toy with Christmas money for my oldest daughter when she was about 2 1/2 months old (she is now 3). We used it every day and even well into when she was stitting up and standing. She liked all the features, especially the monkey. When she was 21 months my second daughter was born and we pulled it out again... she renewed her interest in it and would play with her newborn sister by showing her the features of the toy. My second daughter also loved it too...when she was about 1 year old we put it away for future use with other children. This toy is very durable and has been spit up on and washed many times while remaining in excellent condition. My girls both loved the lights, mirror, crinkle sound in the toys and play mat and also the music. I can't say enough good things about this toy! It is now put away and awaiting usage from our future children...I'm sure they will love it too!

    This is our best baby purchase hands down! It has entertained our twins from the time they were six weeks old. The boys started by watching and cooing at the toys, then graduated to batting at them. Now they have discovered the special features of each toy (crinkling, rattling, vibrating) and are working hard on taste testing each and every one. It is big enough and has plenty of toys for both of them to play at the same time. Even at six months they have plenty of room. When they become bored My twins had acid reflux We did purchase the chimes to attach to this mat. After the purple elephant I highly recommend this activity mat!"

  • Title: Most used toy.

    I have a slightly older version of this Gymini. Overall this new one looks and sounds about the same as ours. This toy is the favorite of my son's. We were desperate to figure out how to entertain the little guy a couple of weeks after his birth. So I pulled out the Gymini and laid him down, he just stared at everything hanging above his head. At about 1 1/2 months he started to bat at the toys with his feet and at 2 1/2 months started to reach for everything. Now at 4 months he is tugging, pulling and exploring the more interactive toys. It keeps him occupied for up to a half hour, especially if I move him around a little on it. The really neat thing about the toy is you can add other Tiny Love objects, or even some of the other toys out there by hanging them from the rings provided. His favorite toy is the wind chime. So we also purchased the trio wind chimes and hung it from the Gymini. We don't really use the music part of the mat, maybe, as he gets older. I think this is one the better investments you can make.

    Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! My daughter has used this item since she was only weeks old, and she still uses it today at 6 months old. Not only is it pleasing for the adult eye to look at, but I do believe that it has encouraged her development as well.

  • Title: Best play mat out there!

    We LOVE this mat! Well worth the $$$. We also have the Baby Einstein mat-cheap toys, small mirror and small mat. This mat is large with a great mirror (much bigger than the others) which my son loved even when he was smaller. He loved to lay back, look at and swat the toys-which can be adjusted and removed. Now that our son is rolling over he loves the crinkly elephant ears and the flowers. We often take toys with us on shopping trips. The mat washes easily and comes out just like new (wash on cold so the colors don't fade). I LOVE this mat and so does my son-he is now 5 1/2 mos and we have used it every day we have had it!

  • Title: Great toy for the very young!

    There aren't many things out there that can grab a newborn's attention...but this mat seems to be perfect! My baby has been loving it since he was about a week old. It's a good purchase as I foresee my child growing with it (there are lots of toys, music, gimmicks on this mat for many stages to come). I also purchased the kick chimes - which are perfect for him as he loves to kick things (yeah, more noise...but it beats crying :) He spends a good hour on it every day (mostly admiring himself in the mirror and staring down the giraffe rattle...). You can't go wrong here!"

  • Title: Both my kids adored this playgym.

    I searched for playmats online and did extensive research before finally selecting this one. My boy's, now 3 and 22 months both loved this activity mat. The animals are brightly colored, some rattle, others crinkle, stretch, shake, or have shiny surfaces, and can be moved easily depending on your baby's positioning. I loved how easy it was to transport and put away, although we left it open most of the time in the play area. I placed the playmat on foam padding as a safeguard against injuries that happen all to often when little one's get more mobile and start crawling and sitting up. This toy kept my kids very happy and the ability to switch music styles was a great bonus. Once they were too big for the playgym I kept it set up just because they had so much fun with it, evetually we removed the plastic links and the animals and they just played with those. You will not regret buying this item, it is well worth the money! I would also like to add that the mirror was not much of a hit until a they were a few month's old, at first they were just captivated by the animals and the crinkly noises they heard when wiggling around. It was adorable to watch them swat at the animals, the first time my oldest son Jadon grasped an object it was the monkey....ah good memories! I also washed this item several times (my youngest son had reflux and he spit up on it quite a few times) yet it lasted extremely well.

  • Title: So fantastic

    We received this gift the day after my son was born. We first checked it out and started playing with it about 3 weeks later. The colors are so bold and bright he really took a liking to staring at them. When he got a little older he started his "tummy time" on the mat and he absolutely loved it. He had so much to keep him occupied, he would sometimes kick where the lights and music play and turn it on by accident. He loved that. The individual toys that hang down are neat in that they each do something different and detach and now that he is older are now stroller tag-a-longs. It's a really fantastic toy. At about 7 months he lost interest to explore more "big boy" toys. Still, even though it was a gift and I know it is pricey, I would have bought it 10 times over.

  • Title: Great Play Yard only 1 flaw.

    This is really a great play yard; the best I've seen. My son spends a great deal of his day in it...sometimes hitting the ducky and kicking the lion but other times with the arches down just kicking away. It is very versitle and protable and washable!!!!! The toys it comes with are a perfect variety and love that they are movable and removable. The mirror is good however the flaw is in the foot/hand pad. It may be that my son is not strong enough yet (he is 3 months 14lbs) but it takes a relly good hit from mommy to make it light up and the music is very low which is okay beacuse it is close to his ears and all but it is also very muffled and when in mozart mode it is just bad music I usually put on 'baby beethoven' in the background instead. But overall, compaibly, this is a great playard, and you do get your moneys worth with how much they are in it!

  • Title: Depends On What kind of a baby is getting the toy...

    My little brother was always bored, so we went to the store and we bought him this. He didn't even touch it! He was probally 10 monthes at the time. He is more of an adventure baby. It might be because he lives with a very big family and is not delighted by little joys of life. He just wasn't interested! (It depends on the baby..)

  • Title: A "Must Have"

    Every baby NEEDS this toy. This is a perfect first toy because the animals hang down close enough for baby to see. My 3 month old baby has enjoyed batting at the animals and listening to the music for weeks now. It is also a good "tummy time" toy. I'm sure she'll continue to enjoy it for months to come.

  • Title: Great toy!

    We purchased this for my daughter when she was only 2 months old. She loves it more and more the older she gets (now at 4 months). She would never leave the playmat if it were up to her. The dangling toys are so fun, she "talks" to them constantly. The little kick pad is great, she makes it go off when she gets really excited. We use this mat primarily for her playing while laying on her back. She does not really like "tummytime" so it has not really served much in that way, but overall this is a great toy for a young infant.

It's great that the animals are removeable. We attach her favorites to the bar over the carseat when travelling, We've added a few extra animals and the windchimes - which she loves!

She also likes the various sounds made by the animals and things on the mat. I would highly recommend this for your baby.

    I started putting my son on this at only a few weeks old. Now at 4 months old he LOVES it & so do I because he only wants me to carry him (ALL DAY LONG) I can lay him on this mat & he is fine. He loves it. He will stay on it for about 45 minutes at a time. It is very entertaining. Well worth the money. I do wish there were a few more songs. They can get a bit annoying. But if I can put him down & have him entertained it is worth it!

    Based on all the positive reviews, we bought that gym thinking that baby Tilly would love to spend some time on it while practicing some skills. Well, she didn't like it. We tried to leave her there at several occasions (5, 10, 15 min, with us next to her, with us far from her), and most of times, she was crying and crying. It is an expensive gadget which requires a lot of floor space. The bouncer and the saucer were better purchases.

  • Title: Worth the money in my opinion

    We just purchased this after Christmas and I have to say that it was a good investment. She can be on it for no less than 1/2 an hour and be content! I love that it has extra rings so you can let the toys hang lower while they are learning to "touch". The music is low, but if it's the only thing you have on, it's fine. She just turned 4 months and is getting more active. We try to fit in tummy time on this mat since the flowers light up to the music and it helps for a little bit (she hates tummy time). You can't go wrong with this and I also attach the toys to her carseat.

  • Title: A pretty good play mat.

    I like the size of this play mat and my son spends a ton of time rolling around and playing on this mat. However, the toys that come along with it did not seem to grab my sons attention at all. The ONLY toy that he likes is the parrot because it crinkles. I actually took off all the other ones and clipped on his link along friends by Lamaze and he likes those MUCH better. This play mat packs up easily to take along and washes up well."

    We registered for this playmat based on the terrific reviews - and we are so glad we did! Our baby loved it from the first time we used it. She went through phases...for a while the mirror was her favorite, then it was the bird, then the giraffe, and so on. When she got too big for the arches, we took them off and just used the mat as a floor blanket. At a year old she still plays with the animals. I used the links to make a chain and attached the monkey (her favorite) to her stroller so she can play with it on the go, but she can't throw him too far! I keep the mat with her toys and she still plays with the crinkly elephant's ear. It makes a good peek-a-boo blanket, too! I have to say that we used the lights and music very little, but she just wasn't the kind of baby that got into those kind of toys. Now we're expecting the next baby, and we already know it will be well used for quite a while longer.

  • Title: 5 stars in terms of quality and activity, 1 star in terms of use.

    We went all out and bought the total playground and a lamaze mirror which I strapped to the arches, lots of extra toys and it's just been a bust! You just do not know if your baby will enjoy lying on the floor and looking up at things, our prefers to be sitting or upright. This toy has proved useless for us and I would highly recommend to people to wait until after birth to see what their little one likes before splashing out, either that or buy second hand where at least you can get your money back! In terms of quality this is one of the better mats I've seen, and if you can get your use out of it, great, by all means it will prove an excellent purchase.

    My baby is the type of baby that always likes to be held. We were happily surprised that he will play on his own in his Gymini. When he was younger his favorite thing to do was look in the mirror. now that he's over 3 months old, he really likes to play with the animals. we also discovered that he likes to put his feet on the mirror - almost like a surfboard. I'm sure when he gets bigger he'll enjoy playing with the stuff on the mat too. We are very pleased with this purchase.

  • Title: MUST HAVE for Mom and Baby!!

    My friend brought this over when her and her 5 month old son came to visit me and my 1 month old daughter. They laid on it together and both got something different out of it. I ran out and bought one and it has gotten so much use!! My daughter (now 6 months old) uses this everyday. She went from focusing on the mirror to playing with the toys and even though we bought other Gymni animals to add on she mostly plays with what came with it originally. Whenever we go anywhere with our daughter this comes with us. It folds easily and is light weight. I throw it over my shoulder and we are good to go! If you unsnap the arches they lay down and you can use the mat to change the baby or let her take a nap. We went to Florida for a week and packed this in a 26 inch suitcase with all of our clothes. It unfolded and reassembled easily. She did not even miss the rest of her toys at home. I do not know how we would travel to visit so much with out this toy. She plays independently on this so I have the chance to get a break. I really can not say one bad thing about this product!!"

  • Title: I enjoy watching my daughter play in this as much as she enjoys playing in it

    We received this playmat when my daughter was nearly 2 months old. She is now 4 months old and this keeps her attention longer than her swing or bouncy seat. She will lay and play with this for a good hour or more. It is a joy to watch how her development has grown with this. At first, she would just lay and stare up, then would occasionally bat at the animals, and now she grabs at them and holds on to them and laughs and laughs. It truly is a great developmental playmat. I chose this mat because it has a mirror, and that is definitely a must have feature for a play mat. She loves looking at herself in the mirror, and it really helps her during "tummy time." This is also very portable...fits well in a suitcase Our daughter entertains my husband and I as much as she entertains herself with this mat! A must-have in my opinion!"

  • Title: The BEST gym on the market

    I have two other gym mats for my son, but this one is far superior. This mat provides the most for the money. I wish I had bought it sooner! I waited until my son was 5 months old before I bought it. My son LOVES it! He plays in it all the time, and he's 8 months old now! He scoots around the rest of his room too, but he always comes back to his Gymini. They really know what entertains babies; there's a reason for all of the wonderful reviews on this gym. The design is superb. It entertains him for hours. The mat has interesting textures built into it. The elephant's ear and the butterfly both crinkle. The zebra's mane and giraffe's tail have a soft, furry texture. The flowers that light up and play music delight my son. The toys that come with it are vibrant and appealing too. Like someone else mentioned, they each have a unique quality to intrigue baby. As an added bonus, the company that makes this mat is wonderful. We lost the parrot, which was one of my son's favorite toys. I called the company to see if I could buy a replacement. They are sending me one for free! This is one of the BEST baby items I have purchased. Well worth the money.

    My son is 4 months old and he love his Gymie (as I like to call it). When I'm busy doing my household chores I put the Gymini on our bed and place Adam underneath and he keeps himself entertained for nearly an hour. I never of course leave him unattended even though he stays in place. He loves using his motor skills by trying to reach for the Giraffe or Monkey that dangle in front of him, and he especially loves staring at his reflection in the mirror while listening to the music. When his has tummy time with Gymini he likes the elephant ears and butterfly wings that make a sound when touched, and also all the other features the mat offers, like the zebra tail and light up flowers that come on with the music. Great item! I'm happy I purchased one and maybe you will too.

    My son is now close to 6 months old. I started using this mat when he was 1 month old. Of course at that age he pretty much just laid there. As the weeks went by, he started talking to the animals and to himself in the mirror, then he started rolling over, then he started being able to pull down on the elephant, make the music play, etc., etc. It is wonderful to see his development through this toy. Another plus...it takes 2 seconds to pack up in its bag so we can take it with to his grandparents' house!

  • Title: We love this play mat!!!

    At first our baby would just stare at the hanging toys, but, we were so surprised to see him progress and start swatting at the toys and eventually grabbing a hold of them. This is a GREAT developmental tool. I also HIGHLY recommend the kick toy chimes. Not only do they make a very nice sound, I think it mesmerizes our baby. He also loves the mirror and even though we were told that he can't focus quiet yet, he does stare alot at it and I think he recognizes that he is looking back at himself. Sometimes when he is fussy I use the play mat as a last resort, thinking that he just may want some more stimulation and this really does the trick. He's kept himself occupied sometimes for an hour! Plus, you can change the toys around so he doesn't get bored.

  • Title: Great Baby Toy

    I'd recommend this toy for any baby up to 12 years old. I was skeptical of it at first, however, I bought it last Christmas (2005) and my baby has played with it since the beginning of January. She is almost 9 months old now. She loves turning and twisting her body around the mat just to see herself in the mirror. She'll turn herself over after she grabs a few things on the mat. I'd definatly recommend to never leave a child alone on this mat. If she pulls herself up when he/she is older, they could hurt themselves. This mat is great for adding other things they can grab and pull on as long as it's safe. She even learned how to turn on her belly by herself for a change on this mat. It's pretty and very colorful, very soothing music for the baby. She fell asleep on her back on the mat once. I was there the whole time so she'd be ok. She will sometimes lay there for an hour now and play with the dangling toys while watching tv or us. I highly recommend this toy. Kinda pricey but worth the buy.

He loves the hanging animals and the mirror. He kicks the bird, pulls on the monkey's legs, and now, I cannot go anywhere without bringing the little giraffe with us. When he discovered his voice, he started to "talk" to himself in the mirror and "talk" to his little hanging "friends"... I hope this is helpful!!

  • Title: A must-have!

    Our daughter loved this play mat. Starting at around a month old, she paid attention to the giraffe and the monkey. As she got older her interest in the other features grew, and she really loved the kick-chimes you can buy as an accessory. The chimes are well worth the extra money -- babies LOVE to kick them (or grab and shake them) and they actually have a very nice, mellow sound. We also grew a bit tired of the music eventually, so we often went without it. The music controller is removable if you don't want to bother with it. Our daughter lost interest in this at around 6 months, when she could sit without assistance, and we put it away by the time she could pull to standing. We plan to roll it back out for the next kiddo, though!

    This is a great toy. We have bought it for friends and even very young babies seem to be in a trance looking at the bright-contrast arches and toys. It is often good for a cranky baby when you need a 10 minute break. We have added loads of other toys and continue to rotate them as friends and family give us little stuffies. One warning: The music is cute at first but will wear on a sleep deprived parent quickly. And One funny story: A friend thought that her Gymini was haunted because it would start playing music in the middle of the night

  • Title: We got very minimal use out of this

    Don't get me wrong. As an adult buying a toy for my baby, I like this playmat. There is lots to do, the toys are interchangeable and you can buy others to attach onto it. The music, squeekers, and crinkly bits are good sensory objects for baby. But... my son didn't really like it. He played with it more as a newborn (0 to 3 months) IF I played with him. He never liked it for tummy time (but like regular playmats with no toys hanging above) so we used other things. He never got into the music or flower light show. So... there you have it... some kids will like it and other won't. (Note: at daycare, he does seem to like the TinyLove Gymini playmat that is black, white, and red a bit better... so maybe we should have gone with that one.) So (Side note on ""haunted issue"" another reviewer mentioned: That story cracked me up!! :P I have to admit that I too was wondering what the heck was going on the first time our playmat went off on its own. I think I jumped about a foot back from the thing!)"

    This seems like a great playmat in concept, and I had high hopes for it. But every time I put my daughter on it she cries. I think it is probably just way too stimulating for her. For awhile there we called it the baby torture mat because she cried so much. Now, I've just given up on it. I could at least salvage the hanging toys because they are removeable. She really likes the elephant. I bought the Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Aquarium by Fisher-Price instead and she loves it. Since the bars don't cross Anyway

    Reasons why this mat is so much better: 1. Huge mirror--my son loves to look at himself in the mirror and its large enough for him to actually use (unlike FIsher Price and Baby Einstein model) 2. Music--my son is 4 months old and loves to follow the musical lights as they bounce from flower to flower 3. Portable--I love that this mat fold up with 2 snaps and you don't have to remove the toy bars in order to take it with you. I bought the mat 4.

    My daughter loved this play gym! She used it for a long time, as she didn't start crawling until 9 months.. and even after crawling, loved to sit at it and play with the dangling toys and turn on and off the music, and crinkle the elephants ear. Even now (at 18 months) I still use the dangling toys in the car, linking them together and hanging them off of the headrest in front of her or off of the hanger abover her. She still likes playing with them-and the elephant was her favorite even at 1 month and still is. 2/08 update: We got this toy out again for our second child

  • Title: Great Mat

    After reading the reviews, I put this mat on my registry. I didn't start using it right away because I thought my daughter was too small. Little did I know. She absolutely loves it. I was in shock to see how she reacted and absorbed all the mat had to offer. Her eyes opened wide the first time she played and now that she's smiling and cooing, I swear she's having conversations with those animals (her favorite by far is the monkey). Don't get me started on how she reacted when she saw her reflection in the mirror. She's only 2 months old!! I can't wait until her motor skills kick in and she starts grabbing and physically playing. For now, I use this mat for tummy time (the mat itself has pictures on it with different textures) and on her back for excercise (she kicks like crazy at the animals.) Because of this playmat I'm able to cook, clean, and pick up while she is playing...it has given me freedom to take care of other things. She is entertained and engaged and I know she will use it for many months to come. It also folds up AWESOME!! I put it in the plastic bag it came in so that it doesn't get dirty when she's not using it. When going away for the weekend...it definitely comes with me.

  • Title: perfect playtime

    My baby LOVES this toy. He loves to look up at the mirror and grab at the toys dangling down at him. He also loves to kick at the foot board and hear the music play. I chose to buy this mat beacause my baby is very big and I thought this mat looked much bigger than the other ones. with this mat he has plenty of room to scoot around on and he should not outgrow it for a while.

    I had bought a cheaper playmat to save money and my baby hated it. She looked at everything but the things that hung down. When I bought this mat, she loved it and can sit under it for long periods of time. It is also great that it has a mirror that she can look at herself for tummy time. My version is a little different than the 2006 version

    I really like this product and more importantly, so does my son. However, it really doesn't keep his interest. He loves the mirror and the elephant. He also likes to pull down the hanging toys. The music is nice but lights don't really hold his attention as much as I thought it would. And lately he's been using the bars as a teething ring. I have read some reviews that talks about a chocking hazard on the elephant

When my son was 3 months of age I would lay on the mat with him and we would look into the mirror together and smile at our reflections, now he moves the mirror on his own to look at himself and giggles. I take it to grandma's house with me, because I know he will play on this mat for extended periods of time.

We've had it for only a few days, but she loves it and it entertains her and helps her develop her skills. ANd, it puts a smile on my face as I watch her pure joy in the toy!

  • Title: My baby loves it for about 15 minutes

    I bought this for my daughter when she was about 2 months old. She really didn't have much interest at that age, except for the mirror. She did enjoy watching herself in the mirror. Now she is 4 months, though, and she really enjoys the yellow lion that hangs on the bar. She doesn't seem to care much for anything except that lion. She will grab him and smile at him for about 15 minutes. She still enjoys the mirror sometimes also. The one thing she doesn't have any interest in is the musical pad w/ lights. It only works if she hits a certain spot that will make it light up and play a little tune. Problem is, sometimes its hard for even me to find the spot that activates it. I think that part of the mat (which they advertise in the name) is pretty much worthless. Compared to other playmats on the market, though, I think this one is a pretty good choice. The price is a bit steep, though, but I was able to acquire it at a discount and feel it is definitely worth what I paid.

  • Title: LOVE it, use it every day

    I had no idea how much we would use this item, and how much my daughter would enjoy it. The hanging items gave her something to look at while she was in her first month. In the following months, I feel that she really learned a lot of hand-eye coordination by reaching for these items. At 4 months she easily grabbed them, and now at 6 months they (and other items we added) still keep her attention. At 5 months she rolled over to play with the items on the pad, and easily rolls all over--and off of--the pad. She seemed to spend a lot of time looking into the mirror, which is a good quality one, not too distorted like many other toy mirrors. She seems to discover something new on the gym at each age. Without carpeting or other cushioning, I think the pad would feel a little hard on her back. The bottom pad is machine washable (hang to dry) after a simple disassembly. I'm glad I didn't buy a smaller gym. Drawbacks: the music is annoyingly out of tune, so that we don't use it much. Also, one of the 3 flower mechanisms that can be pressed to activate the music is very hard to activate, so that I even have trouble.

  • Title: Love it!! Love it!! Love it!!

    I received the Tiny Love Gymini as a Shower Gift and I bought the Exersaucer Entertainer for my daughter a few weeks ago (she wasn't quite 4 mos. at the time) and she loves them both! I have been using the Gymini since she was a month old for her tummy time. Her development and stimulation from the animals and mirrors have been really amazing. Now, she likes to stand and has had real good development in her back and neck for her age. So, I purchased the Exersaucer for her. She's up to about 15 minutes in it. Which gives me time to get bottles ready, take a breath, and type this review! :-) The Exersaucer was amazingly easy to put together. My husband is deployed Anyway The Gymini and Exersaucer are wonderful! I recommend them both to any parent!"

  • Title: Worth every penny

    We registered for this and got it before our son (now 18 months) was born. I took it out when he was around 8 weeks old and he loved it immediately. As he got older, he would get more engaged with the animals, lights, etc. and he loved the music. It also folds amazingly flat and we took it with us as the main toy for many trips last summer, in our large suitcase, etc. I washed it a few times and that whole process was easy. I was sad when we finally packed it away (upon crawling, he had no interest in things that didn't move too!) and look forward to using it again... highly recommend this product. I have friends who had a more basic model (no lights, etc.) and their kids weren't as into it - I am not usuallly a bells and whistles kind of mom, but I would definitey urge spending the extra cash on the deluxe model.

  • Title: A world of entertainment

    I purchased this for my baby when she was around 6 weeks old. She loved it then and at 7 months she still really likes it. I almost purchased a different activity gym because I didn't know if she would play with it at such a young age. She loved it right away. It comes with 5 toys and a mirror and she would look and coo and the hanging toys for up to 30 minutes solid. As she got older she really got into the mirror and turning on the music. I have purchased several other toys to hang on it (her favorite is the windchimes) and she now loves to crawl through the gym at top speed shaking and jingling all the toys. She also still likes the mirror and the music. She initially wasn't into looking at the mat while on her tummy (which is what I thought she'd like at first) but now she loves looking at the different animals. This toy has really grown with her and while she has lots of other toys to choose from she still plays with this one at least once a day. On a different note, it washes very well and only takes 2 or 3 hours (I lay it on top of the dryer) to dry completely. Definately worth the money.

    Maybe it's just my kids but I have had two of these---one for my 3 year old and one for my now 12 month old (both given to them when it was age appropriate)---and neither child was at all interested for more than a *few* fleeting seconds. I threw our first one out, but bought a second when my baby was born, thinking she might like it better than her brother---nope! And this is at the newborn age---there is no way at 10mos old they would have liked this (going by the age range given. Honestly there is not a lot for an infant to do with this. For me it was a waste of money both times, and if we have a third child, I would not buy another unless I actually see the baby enjoying it! If it works for everyone else I envy you all!

The animal toys are very cute, although I think all of them hanging over him at once is a bit of overkill - luckily they are easily removable. My only complaint about this toy is that the music player doesn't work very well and is pretty flimsy. It has 2 settings - one that plays mozart and one that plays children's songs. The children's songs setting does not work at all If the rickety music player doesn't bother you

  • Title: Entertaining from 0 to at least 8 months

    Our daughter has spent at least a half an hour every morning with this toy from birth to more than 7 months and it still has not grown old. One of the things I like best about it is that you can detach and rearrange the toys to change things up; there are plenty of extra attachment points so that if you have other toys with those standard clippy rings, you can attach them to the gym to add variety. The way she can play with it has changed over time, and I think she'll continue to be able to use it until she can walk. 0-2 months: she stared at the toys and mirror and particularly enjoyed it if someone shook one of the toys. She especially enjoyed the giraffe 2-4 months: she began to learn to reach for things by playing on this gym. The toys dangled at a perfect height for her wandering hands to grasp 5-7 months: she can now rotate herself in place while on her back (accidentally) I think she'll continue to find this toy entertaining until she can walk. At that point Another nice thing is that the mat is machine washable As for the music

  • Title: Perfect for developmentally disabled

    My daughter is 3 and has CP. I don't know what we would have done if we hadn't found this toy. We've had it for 2 1/2 years. She can't sit up independantly. She only recently got a wheelchair and can only tolerate it for a couple hours a day. ALL of the rest of her waking hours are spent laying (happy!) on her mat. It's now become torn up enough that I am buying a new one. It's torn up because it gets washed about once a week, it's on the floor in my livingroom and gets stepped on by the dog, cats and big kids. It has held up amazingly for almost 3 years. The difference between this one and all the others is the rivets that hold the links. Other mats have cloth loops or velcro. These rip. Being able to slide the link into the rivet has kept the toy alive for over 2 years. Because my child is bigger and strong I wish the snap that holds the arch arms together was stronger. She pulls on the toys and the arches drop down so we've had to hold it together with a diaper pin which puts holes in the fabric. But for the average baby this won't happen. All other toys that I've purchased for my daughter I've had to buy from a catalouge of adapted toys for developmentally disabled. The average price for any given toy is about $150. Thank you Tiny Love for your priceless play mat."

The quality of the music is great and the hanging toys are also very nice.

  • Title: Love this toy! The awards are definitely well deserved

    We got this before we even brought the baby home. At first, he seemed a little overwhelmed with all the colors and all the stuff hanging over him. But he got over it very quickly. By the time he was 2 months old, he was spending a good 15 - 30 minutes in it everyday. As he grew, he started to spend longer in there. Each toy held more and more interest. I love the fact that I could tag in any of his other toys there too. Or I'd just take the elephant or giraffe from this toy to his crib with him. He spent ages looking in the mirror... talking/cooing to the baby in the mirror! He learnt to turn the music on and off by himself by the time he was 6 months old, and that added new interest. It helped a lot with tummy time, since he had a lot to look at. The textures are incredible too. Soon he was sitting up, and then he had a whole other perspective. He's been using it for 10 months nearly. This is definitely value for money!

    THis is hands down the best item that we bought for our daughter. She fell in love with it (mainly the mirror) at a few weeks old and is now nearly 7 months and still loves it (though I've added some toys over time). If you buy one thing for your child, this is the one. My daughter hangs out in it all the time - first she'd look at the toys, then swat them, now she gets in there and handles everything, flips to look at the mat, etc. It's been such a huge help to me to have a few minutes to get things done or rest because she's so happy in there and it's good for her little body, too.

The price was $60 and the box came without any reinforcements, it was crushed and the tape was not totally adhered to the carton. Even the UPS man documented a damage delivery. As the present is for a baby shower I'm not sure of its quailty until its opened. I've bought many things from Amazon, but this is my first disappointment

  • Title: Keeps my baby busy!!!

    My baby was enjoying this on her back and tummy from as early as 3 weeks. My daughter is now 4 months old and still isn't bored of the gymini at all. She loves to grab all the hanging animals or rings and to stare at the mirror. I am grateful that I am free to do other things while she is having tons of fun. The music is a plus (she prefers the mozart instead of the nursery rhymes). My only complaint is that changing batteries for the music box is rather difficult. It is tough to take the music box out of the mat and the batteries out of the box.

  • Title: Warmly Recommended!

    I had a different mat for my first child. I received this as a gift when my daughter was born. She loves it. Much better than our old mat. Great for tummy time and back. Some negatives: you must lay it on a carpet because the mat is not thick enough to support a tumbing baby's head- but this is true for most mats.Also, it becomes too small when the baby is mobile, and the batteries are consumed rather quickly. We had a problem with the squeeky part on the mat and Tiny Love got back to us quickly with a replacement mat- so great customer care!"

  • Title: An excellent way to develop reach and grab skills

    This is by far the best play mat on the market. Our son (three months old) will easily spend up to an hour looking, reaching, kicking, grabbing, and talking to the toys hanging above him. The toy animals are all removable and you can make them different lengths by adding or subtracting links. (longer for beginning swatting and shorter to encourage reaching) The music touch pad is very easy to remove if you want to wash the mat and the whole thing folds up flat in a snap (literally) and can be stored under the crib, bed, or behind the couch or a chair. We put our little Henry down in the middle of the mat on his back with a burp cloth under his head (to catch the gleeful drool and excitement spit-up) and his feet pointed at the mirror. He loves to kick and push the mirror with his feet and grab the crinkly elephant ear beside him. This is a great way to get a load of laundry done, or dinner in the oven.

  • Title: Sanity Saver

    MY baby girl is 6 weeks old and she just LOVES this playmat. The music is wonderful. Besides her swing, this is her favorite toy. She lays on it for about 1/2 hour a day and coos/gurgles the whole time. Its so sweet to hear her interact with the lion and duck chime. I can't wait until she discovers the mirror!

    We gifted this toy to our niece Nimisha when she was completing 2 months..Initially she spent only few minutes in this gym..But as she grows she seems fascinated about the gym and absolutely loves it. She is now 5 months old and she enjoys pulling and kicking at the toys. We like the aspect that there are additional hooks to hang more toys. Over all it is a good value for the money.

  • Title: Hours of entertainment!

    I've been putting my son on this mat since he was a month old and the colours and sounds endlessly entertain him. He plays and gives his parents time to get things done around the house for half an hour at a time, and the mirror encourages him to push his head up during tummy time. It's easily washed, which is handy because I almost always have spit up on it. The music isn't too loud or too quiet, though there is no volume control, and the batteries don't last very long, but then again, my son insists on having the music on all the time when playing on it. Definitely recommended to any parent desperate for a little time to get things done!"

  • Title: My 3-mo-old likes it

    We received this as a hand-me-down from a friend. It was not one I probably would have chosen to buy, but my son seems to like it a lot. I like that there are activities above and below, those will come in handy when our 3mo old develops more. The music, crinklys and sqeekers in the mat are a great surprise to him when he accientally kicks them. He's atracted by the bright colors & patterns of the arches. One reviewer said the arches are too low, causing the toys to hang too far down, but I like that because the toys are low enough for him to reach, batting and grabbing at them. And I can rearrange the toys, and take them off for him to play with, take with us or wash! The monkey attachment has become his best friend. He can "talk" to monkey for 15 minutes straight. The mat disassembles for cleaning and folds up well for storage, too. My only complaints are that I can't remove the fabric from the arches to wash it as well, and the music pad doesn't ever really shut off all the way, so when the cats walk on it, it still goes off! But if those are the worst things, then it's a pretty good playmat!

    This is a great mat. Our son loves playing on it. At first he "talked" to the mirror and now he pulls, kicks and plays with everything.

  • Title: Keeps baby busy and having fun!

    I bought this because my baby hated her tummy time and I needed something to get her on the floor and happy. Well, this did the trick! She loves her gym and especially the hanging giraffe rattle (the feet are just perfect to shove in her mouth). This thing will keep her busy for about thirty minutes at a time and provides much needed time for mom to get some things done. My only complaint is that the colors have faded on the mat and are not nearly as bright any more. In the mat's defense, my baby spits up a lot and it does get washed a few times a week.

    Our daughter loved this gym from day one. I think we bought it when she was only a couple weeks old and didn't expect her to react to it at all so early. As others have said It's a great toy that'll grow with your baby. The only complaint is that the colors do fade with time and washing."

It's a great first toy because newborns can just look at the patterns and colors, and grow into batting and grabbing the toys. I machine wash the mat to get rid of the copious amounts of spit up My only wish for this mat is that you could get more music for it. The music pad comes out so that you can wash the mat

  • Title: Very Good Purchase

    I bought this play mat along with two other mat/gyms for my baby girl when she was 3 month old and this one was the best purchase, I would say. At the very beginning she didn't enjoy it that much, but it was mainly because she hadn't reached the developmental stage so as to be able to really and fully interact with the toys and activities offered by the gym. However, as she grew up a little more -about 4 month old, she absolutely loved it. It also was a big help for me, since it became a reliable way to keep my baby entertained for a period of time while I would do some other tasks. The gym is easy to move, clean, and store. Also the fact that the toys are interchangeable is a great feature since it allows to combine them with other toys, and also move them from the gym to the crib, car seat, and stroller. Now my baby is 8 and half month old and she still uses it from time to time (I've put it in her play zone). Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and I do recommend this product.

  • Title: My baby hated this

    I am shocked to see that this play mat has such high reviews. I tried and tried with this thing and my son absolutely hated it. In fact, he rolled over for the very first time while being on it, because he was screaming in agony. The toys were cute, but he didn't really get into playing with them until he was older and I sent the mat itself to goodwill. We lived in a small space at the time and I didn't have enough space to leave it out all the time. It folded up fairly easily, but not that easy. Another negative aspect is that it is spot clean only, which is kind of gross for spit up. Overall, there are other toys out there that have a longer lifetime of use. However, sounds like a lot of babies do like it.

  • Title: Best Baby Gift

    This is such a wonderful play mat; it has flowers that light up, it plays either classical or nursery tunes, and has little toy animals that make different noises, and a mirror so baby can see herself or himself. It sets up easily, and my niece was able to fit it into the playpen by folding the edge a little. Of course, it can be placed on the floor as well. The mat itself is made up of colorful materials, and there are different textures for baby to explore and feel. I bought this for my grand niece,who had just turned 6 weeks old, and I had fun watching her react to the different sights and sounds. This is probably the best baby gift I've ever seen.

  • Title: not so popular for my 3 month boy

    I have to admit that i purchased the mat after i read the great reviews, and I bought it with my $50 gift card. Basically I only spent $5 for the mat, so that I don't suffer too much economically. But I rather I haven't bought it simply because my son doesn't like it so much. It takes some space and I am in a dilemna to give away. But it is not a cheap toy. My three months old can spend 5 minutes on the mate before he cries. the mirror caught his attention sometimes. Afterwards i have to fold it and unfold it when use - not worth the energy. But I also heard good comments from my friends who have a baby daughter. So it really depend on individual kids. What i recommend is to let your baby try on it before you made the buying decision

  • Title: Very entertaining but some quality issues

    The good: My 4 month old really enjoys this toy - especially reaching for, pulling on, and kicking at all the animals. It keeps her entertained for a little while when I try to cook, start laundry etc. Nothing is a substitute for play time with Mommy, but Mommies need to get a few things done! The bad: The batteries are very difficult to change. The plastic compartment is made too tight for the standard Duracell AA batteries! It was frustrating. Finally my husband had to wedge the batteries in with great effort. I like being able to wash the mat

  • Title: Best gym of all

    Bought this gym and the baby einstien, and the Tiny Love is better - no contest. Music plays based on motion and kicks, when my sons figured out that the more they kicked the more the music and lights kept going. Toys are fantastic and encourage interaction. Gym is colorful and entertaining. Mat retains it color after 4 washings so far. Easily set up. This was well worth the money spent.

    My son was 6 mo. when I bought the Tiny Love gym. He out grew it quickly. He did stay occupied long enough to get a load of laundry in. I read in a review when I was considering purchasing this item that the bottom pad was thick enough to put on a tile or hardwood floor. ITS NOT AT ALL!!! The lights aren't as attention grabbing as i would have thought but it lasted until my kiddo learned to crawl. I think it would have come in really handy had I bought it sooner. Oh well, it will be saved for number two!!

  • Title: Lots of fun for our little one!

    My daughter loves this gym. She got interested in it when she was about 6 weeks old. She likes the monkey the best because his hand hangs down and she can put it in her mouth. (Luckily everything is washable!) She enjoys looking in the mirror and she has learned to roll over so that she can get to everything. It has a crinkly elephant ear, a giraffe tail to hold, and a squeaker hidden inside (which drives our doggie nuts!). The only thing that I am disappointed in is the music. It is very yucky to listen to. It is tinny and out of tune sometimes. It makes me sad to hear how bad it is, so we never turn it on. Our daughter has plenty of fun without it, though! I recommend this product to any parent.

    I have a 3 month old daughter and she loves this play gym. As a parent I do have a few complaints, but nothing that I consider a deal-breaker. I wish there were lights on the arches, not just on the mat itself. I've also had problems with the "nursery tunes" musical setting. I can't get it to play longer than 30 seconds or so. I don't have that problem with the "Mozart" setting for some reason. Regardless, she loves it.

  • Title: Great playmat, except "music" part

    This was one of the most useful first year items. Our daughter spent a lot of time on this mat, and liked different things over time. One thing that I liked about it was ability to hook different toys to the overhead arches, so it was pretty versatile. What didn't work is the whole lights and music thing. Anna could never find the right place to press to trigger lights and music by itself, so music never became a baby-led activity for her.

  • Title: Disappointed

    I was disappointed in this mat, based on the fact that I was looking for something to encourage my 5 month old son in his tummy time. I thought the musical buttons on the mat would be great cause and effect fun, but they are hard to press. Sometimes he can make them work if he hits them with his heel, but then he has to be on his back which is not the point for tummy time! If you are looking for a gym for your baby when s/he is on their back, then this is a fine one to get. It folds up and snaps for easy storage. Unfortunately, ours is stored more than it is used!

  • Title: Keeps my son entertained!

    We love this activity mat. My 11 week old son is learning to grab toys, and he "talks" to the animals as he reaches for them and bats at them. When we first purchased it he was 6 weeks old and he could really only stay on it happily for 5-8 minutes at a stretch, but now at 11 weeks he will enjoy independent play for a good 10-15 minutes - long enough for Mommy to put in a load of laundry! We also use it for the dreaded tummy-time, as it has flaps with crinkly noises that distract him a bit from how frustrating tummy-time can be.

  • Title: Contains fiberglass, causes rash

    When my baby is on his back, he enjoys swatting at the toys... but when we do tummy time and his face comes in contact with the fabric, it causes a rash. I'm not sure if the rash has to do with the fiberglass batting (great idea for a baby product, huh?) or the cheap, rough fabric. Regardless, I would highly recommend looking for a similar product that doesn't contact fiberglass.

  • Title: Excellent quality, fabulous entertainment

    I put this mat on our registry based on all the good reviews and I can't say enough good things about it. We got another activity mat as a gift as well, the Baby Einstein Baby Neptune, but this one by Tiny Love is far superior in quality, design and ease of use. When we first got it before my son's birth, i was so taken with it, i spent a good half hour just playing with it myself! My son is now nearly five months and has been using this gym since he was a couple weeks old. It's been amazing watching him interact with this mat as he develops different skills. The mat unfolds easily out of the box and is ready for play right away. The snap holding the arches together in the middle can be easily undone and the arches laid flat to enable baby to nap on the mat. The arches can also easily unsnap altogether when you need to wash the mat. I unsnapped the arches and curved them into my suitcase on top of the folded mat when i recently went overseas for an extended trip with my son. We spent two months out of the country and this Tiny Love mat went with us. He played and napped in it every day and i thanked my stars everyday that I had brought it. The dangling animals are incredibly cute and creatively designed with eye-catching colors and textures. My son loves to hold the monkey's hand as it dangles outstretched. He has gone from just looking at the parrot to actively fingering its crinkly wings. And he also has great fun with the 3-D elements on the mat -- he can spend 10 minutes just scrunching the big elephant's ear so he can hear it crinkle. The music and lights are soothing

    So far, this is the one thing I feel has been vital for baby entertainment and education. The day it came I saw how useful it was! I love to play with my daughter in it. (The elephant is my favorite toy because it retracts, but my daughter actually likes the giraffe best.) Pros: *EASY* to set up and easy to put away. It has little snap buttons and snapping or unsnapping them is the only effort you have to put into it. Colorful Interactive toys Soft crossbars and padding Cool mirror Potential to add more toys later Cons: Music is boring and repetitive - but that may actually be a good thing to a baby The card that supports the lights is a little stiff and I wonder if hitting it the wrong way may actually hurt I love this gym.

The only thing wrong is the 2 music settings (which are supposed to play 2 different sets of songs) play only 1 song; and the same song on each setting.

  • Title: Poorly made and unsafe

    This product is poorly made and unsafe. One of the arches snapped in two after less than six months of use. When I contacted the company for a replacement part they indicated that they were out of the arches and there was nothing they would do without a receipt. I explained to the representative that I received the item as a gift and did not have a receipt. Still, nothing. Poor product, poor customer service, not something I would recommend.

  • Title: Looks better in person!

    I was pleasantly surprised when I received this item. I bought it because I read the reviews and would have purchased the Precious Planet one because of its appearance. I'm glad I purchased this one though- I love that it folds up and it looks great. My little guy loves it. Wouldn't have minded more toys but we can always buy more. I'm really glad I bought this.

  • Title: The best toy so far

    I bought this when my son was about a month old. He loved it right away. He played on it everyday until he started crawling and sitting up. I like that it's not overstimulating with too may bells and whistles. Best money I spent so far. Good opportunity for independent play and it was also helpful to bring with us when we went visiting.

  • Title: Great activity gym

    My daughter loves it. She's almost 6mnths now and still enjoys - discovering more and more as she grows up. She's been playing in it since she was little more than a month old. 1+ month: She just stared at the animals and arches above her. 2+ months: Gradually went on to wildly flailing her arms and batting the animals 3-4 months: Hitting and pulling the animals 4-6 months:Now that she turns over on her own she moves about - discovering the lights and textures and playing with the mirror. She's also been enjoying tummy time on the mat throughout. This was part of my registry - but I would gladly have paid for it. I also have the rain forest bouncer and papasan swing - all of which she loves and spends time in multiple times daily."

  • Title: Encourages Activity

    I recently purchased the TIny Love playmat after seeing my son play on a similar mat of my friend's. This mat totally encourages activity. My son can lay on the mat for an hour straight kicking and playing. The music does get a little old, but I can tune it out! I definitely highly recommend this toy!

  • Title: Very entertaining!

    My daughter is 3 months, we have been using this for about 4 weeks and she loves it. She will lay on the mat for up to an hour. Easy to wash and store. Can move toy animals around easily too. If baby is happy I'm happy. Worth every penny.

  • Title: Great Gym!!!

    This gym is, by far, the best one that I've come across (and I've done my "treasure hunting"...) The giraffe rattles, the parrot has super crinkly wings, monkey has elastic arms & legs, and the elephant vibrates when cord is pulled! My 4 month old loves looking at herself in the mirror. There is a bird print on the mat that holds a squeaker and the elephant on the mat has a giant ear that crinkles, too! There's more.... the flashing lights in the flowers coordinate with the mozart music (or, if you wanted mother goose rhyme music, there's that option as well); one song that I can remember is "Three Blind Mice". My daughter has rolled now from tummy to back and almost from back to tummy. I think this gym helps encourage this because of the 360 degree options of fun. If you have a baby that is easily overstimulated though, this might not be the perfect gym for you because there is so much going on (although, the toys on the top bars are removable). I don't see how this item can be a choking hazard. The dangling purple elephant has a light purple fabric belly that is securely sewn, and the rest of the items are safe, as well. Overall, my little girl has had this gym since she was two months old and still is enjoying it (more and more, actually). I highly recommend it! Just have your little one try it and watch his/her re(actions)!

  • Title: baby's favorite place to play - entertains for hours

  • Title: Poor sound quality

    I purchased this for my 10 week old, and he seems to like it when he is calm. Not a good idea for him when he is upset. But the reason I gave this 3 stars is /c of the sound quality in the stars. I bought new batteries and put them in, and it sounds like the music is dying. Have since switched out the batteries, but the music still appears to be dying. I plan on exchanging this for another mat of the same, and am hoping that mine is just flawed.

  • Title: Been Using Since Day 1!

    Well actually probably day 5 since we got home from the hospital. I never write reviews on anything but my baby is only 2 months old and we have consistantly used it each and every day. She loves the bright colors, the mirror, and the sounds. It has been the only place she let us put her down without instantly crying and we have built up time each day so that she is now spending about 20 minutes happily batting at the toys and cooing at them and herself in the mirror. GREAT PRODUCT!

  • Title: Baby Loves It!

    I am so pleased with this play gym! It is so very cute. I love that it is 3-D and that the elephant ear lifts up and is crinkly and has a bird hiding under it. The flower petals will be great for grabbing. (My little guy is just 2 months, so isn't doing that yet) I also like the fact that there are places to attach toys at different levels, so we can move the toys and our son around under them and keep it interesting. Our son loves it and just grins and coos at the hanging toys. I haven't put batteries in it yet, so cannot comment on the music feature. I am so happy we purchased this one!

  • Title: Great fun for infant right from birth!

    I got this gift from my baby registry and my son loves this! We started using it when he was a few days old. But now that he's 15 weeks, he really enjoys playing with it! We use it several times daily for play and tummy time. Its easy to clean with the exception of the crinkly paper in the elephant and the butterfly on the mat--it got balled up in the wash and I haven't "unwrinkled" it...not very practical placement for something that goes into my washing machine weekly! The overhead toys are interchangeable which is nice. The music isn't so great, it plays the same classical song over and over and for some reason the Nursery song stops playing after the first round and won't restart for a couple of minutes. I don't use the music much because I find it annoying.

  • Title: Great Toy

    We received this gym as a hand me down from my sister in law, but after having it I would buy a replacement if they wanted to take it back. At two months The flowers that light up/music that plays is great now that she is 3 months and starting to have longer ""tummy time"". Eventually she will figure out the crinkly elephant ears and the fringe zebra but she hasn't figured out her hands yet We have friends with other play gyms and they just have a few of the things this one has. I am a fan."

  • Title: Baby and Parent Pleaser

    My baby and I love this toy. I purchased it when my son was about 2 months but wish i would have had it sooner. It is great for tummy time. It also really stimulates the baby when he is on his back. It is very colorful and comes with a bunch of hanging toys that your child can play with. It also has a bunch of grommets that you can attach any additional toys and it is very easy to change them out. The mat itself has a squeaky toy embedded, sections with crinkle paper, flowers that light up when the music is played, a mirror and a few other fun features. I continue to be very pleased with this purchase.

  • Title: Invaluable during a major move...

    When my son was younger, this was one of his favorite toys to play with (and even now that he is 11 months, the toys that hang down are great for "car seat" toys!)! We started using the TinyLove Playgym when he was just a few months old. When his eyesight was good enough, he loved looking at the colors and lights (perfect for tummy time!). It was so exciting to watch him "grasp" for the first time as he grabbed the colorful purple elephant! I don't know what I would have done without this play-mat as we made a trans-Atlantic move! The mat and crossbars folded small enough to fit in our biggest suitcase and as we prepared for our move (and as we stayed in a temporary accommodation)

  • Title: Great Activity Gym

    This play gym is great. I got it for my daughter when she was 2 months old and I think she could have been enjoying it even sooner than that. She is now 4 months old and she still loves it. I move the toys around and put new toys on the arches from time to time so she doesn't get bored with the same thing. She loves the mirror and the parrot. We don't listen to the music too often.

  • Title: Amazing product, my daughter just LOVES IT!

    I went to a friend's house who happened to have one of these and my baby seemed to like it pretty well. So, for Christmas she got one from my parents upon my suggestion. This is BY FAR her favorite thing. Initially she LOVED to lay on her back and kick at the animals as well as grab them between her feet. Now that she is more aware of her hands, she loves to grab at them and bat them around. I know as she spends more time on her tummy, she will also love the things to look at and play with there. What an absolutely GREAT product. She "visits" with the animals and doesn't seem to get bored with it as she can with other things.

  • Title: Really Great

    I would highly recommend this product to anyone. The mat is nice and soft; perfect for little babies. The mat has all kinds of different things to grab, touch, and explore while babies are on their tummies. The hanging toys are fun, colorful, and "do" different things (vibrate, rattle, etc.) The whole thing folds down, so it can be put away. I love this product and would buy it again and even give it as a gift.

  • Title: LOVE LOVE LOVE

    My child has loved this since she was 2.5 months old. We purchased it for Christmas and it has kept her occupied with smiles since. She loves tummy time and can now roll over from her tummy to back and from her back to belly to look at all the fun stuff on the mat and the items that hang above her! If you are looking for something that will help your childs development as well as help you get stuff done around the house this is the item to get!

  • Title: Unsatisfied

    This was a replacement for the same product where the blinking lights on the flowers quit working very shortly after it was received. Unfortunately the same thing happened with the replacement item almost immediately. Altough Amazon waas good about replacing the first item, I don't think it is worth my time to ask for a second replacement.

  • Title: The best gym!

    I was in a rush when I purchsed this gym at Babies R US, so I just picked it up withoit have compared reviews or anything like that, I wasreally surprised when I first put my son of 3 months there, he was amazed, and he last up to 15 to 20 minutes just playing with the figures, that was great for me, because I finally could do some house work. Now my baby is 6 months old, and even he still enjoy it, isnot as much as in the begining, but its because he is grown and is more interested in new things, but for smaller babies, definitely is a must.
