The World of Baby Play Gyms: A Gateway to Fun and Learning

Wondering what exactly a play gym is? It's a stimulating little play space for your child to relax and play at the same time. You pop the wooden play gym on top of a cushioned play mat, and away they go. They typically are fitted with play gym toys of all different colours and textures, and some even make noise. These different objects help stimulate your baby visually and teach them to move their gaze.

A toddler play gym is a wonderful investment for your growing baby. Introduce it early on with your newborn, and you'll get good use out of your gym for around a year until they grow out of it.
