Having said that, it is sturdy and robust, it has plenty of different things that will stimulate a baby and stuff that is small enough for a baby's hands to grasp without too much effort. I like the mirror in the centre which panders to the egotism of the young!
I am not sure what to make of the instructions for play which are trumpeted as being additionally wonderful on the packaging when you buy it. It had never occurred to me that parents would be particularly clueless as to how to play with a small child and an activity centre, but if you are, I'm sure this is a wonderful feature.
The thing about products like this is that you'll never know whether
or not it will engage your little one's interest until you've bought one.
On the plus side the colours are bright and shiny and it's got a
good variety of functions which spin, rattle and wiggle; it's fairly
robust (although the three small green, blue and orange levers probably
won't stand up to repeated pummelings!) but 'Activity Centres' like
this are really no substitute for interactive play and communication
with an attentive, enthusiastic, imaginative and loving parent.
Yet one more invention to fulfil a need you didn't know you had....
The first is that she already has a walker that is very similar to this - things to turn, spin et cetera, that she already knows and loves.
Secondly, the shelf life of this toy was very short. The box advises that it's for babies from six months but I'd say that any baby over one year old will either already have something like this or if they don't, they'll get bored of it very quickly.
I really liked the deep holes on the old telephone style turner which allow children to get a grip. The squeaky button stuck several times but did easily come loose with prodding.
I was very pleased with this activity centre and would definitely recommend it.
Positives: It is well made, but then we'd expect young children's toys to be solidly built. There is a nice variety of components, so it does at least *look* interesting, and some thought has obviously gone into its design.
Negatives: It seems quite expensive for what it is, and I think it has a limited age-range. It is perhaps not as interesting as it looks and maybe tries to do too much.
I do feel however that people's experiences with this toy will vary, depending on the child, so if you're looking for a solidly built activity centre for a 6 month old, this should be OK.
