great idea, age guide not quite right though
on 25 February 2009
My parents bought this for our son for Christmas, and although it says ages 0-6 months on the box he's only just beginning to be able to use it now at 3 months. Previously he was too small & his arms and legs couldn't even reach the floor, let alone spin the turntable! A more accurate age guide would probably be 2-3 months up. That said the colours are really bright and catch his attention and the mat has a number of activities to play with even without the turntable, including a mirror, a crinkly leaf, and a peek-a-boo bug.
Edit: my son is now 9 months old and never used the turn table as by the time his arms and legs had the strength and co-ordination to move it around he was too big for it and could also roll over on his own and therefore fall off. The mat itself is a great hit with him though as he loves exploring all the activites. In conclusion you may be better off just buying an activity mat as in my experience the turn table itself isn't really suitable for any age bracket :(
