This review is from: Little Tikes Discoversounds Activity Garden Play Centre (Toy)
We bought this for our 6 month old for Xmas. Initially I absolutely loved it - he sat nicely inside playing with the balls and the phone. Wonderful I thought. My only niggles were that the musical thing and the postbox were not reversible so he could play with them from inside - which seemed daft. Now a month later I have had to stop him using it completely until I can find a way to make it safe!!! The problem started the moment he began to pull himself up. The red door with the musical instrument is not lockable from the outside - which is totally ridiculous, as the lovely bar over the top just begs to be climbed up. When he loses balance he thinks the door will steady him and hold him up. Wrong!!! It swings wide open under his weight and lets him crash to the floor. This is so dangerous - after seeing him crash through it and smash his head on the floor and having him screaming for ages we then had to only allow him in it if that door was jammed up against the sofa! As bubba got stronger and more confident he pulled himself up inside all the time - the final straw was when I watched him pull himself up, lean into the corner and then slide the whole thing the length of the laminate floor. It is not heavy or strong enough to hold his weight so while he is still wobbly he cannot play in it. Sliding wont be an issue on carpet so going to buy a rug to put it on but the red door will still have to be jammed against the sofa!!! Surprised something so obvious wasnt picked up in testing.
