This review is from: Bright Starts Spots and Stripes Safari Gym (Baby Product)
I knew that I wanted a play gym for my baby and after researching decided on this one. I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift from my Amazon wishlist and started using it when my baby was around three weeks old. Until then he didn't stop feeding or sleeping often enough to do anything else!

The packaging is quite annoying as it's made for display, meaning each component of the gym is fastened to a cardboard insert by multiple thick plastic ties which all need cutting - I would definitely recommend getting this set up before baby arrives if possible.

It's easy to assemble, and the play mat is machine washable, which is very useful since my son quite frequently brings up a little sick whilst playing - though it wipes off without leaving a mark. There are multiple loops to hang the toys from which makes them quite easy to move around, but very secure for baby.

What I like best about this gym is the way it caters for babies from a very early age - it has lots of black and white patterns and toys, which are easiest for a newborn to see, and as their vision develops the bright colours and sound and light toy hold their attention. When my son was four weeks old, he would stare at the spotty leg of the gym, and then became fascinated by the dangling cat toy and most of all the tiger in the middle - even before we put the AAA batteries (not included) in he would smile and talk at the tiger for ten minutes at a time. Now he's four months old he is starting to enjoy the lights more, and he grabs and moves the toys easily. I think the teething leaves will become popular soon.

Although this gym is definitely one of the pricier ones out there, I have found it to be worth every penny and would recommend it to any other parent.
