  • Both of my girls have loved playing in this. The holes in the mesh part are even fun as my daughter got too old to want to lay inside. Mar 28, 2021

  • Great for tummy time, rolling, & extra entertainment. The added ball pit is a big hit in our house. Jan 19, 2021

  • We love this toy! We take the elephant off and bring it with us in the car and other places. She loves the lights. Nov 12, 2020

  • I love that the sides fold up. We wore out the elephant by using it so much and now the lights go on without sound. My little one was so happy in it. It’s extremely easy to clean too! Oct 20, 2020

  • Really enjoyed this ball play for my 1st child. She loved playing with all the balls. The material of the balls is very thin therefor it would bend quickly. But other than that it was great! Oct 09, 2020

  • My son absolutely loves this play mat. He enjoys dancing to the music Sep 30, 2020

    My grandma bought us this awesome play mat and my daughter just loves it. The music is great and the toys are just perfect! I love that it can grow with her too! Great Mat! Aug 05, 2020

  • We didn’t use this as much as I thought. Balls never got used. My toddler now plays with them. They are all over. May 08, 2020

  • Love Love Love. The best playmat that grows with baby. Has so many activities and is great for tummy time. I purchased the safari version which brings a light up musical elephant my baby loves. A Must Feb 29, 2020

  • I really was excited about my baby girl getting this for her first Christmas as she was 3 months, but she had no interest in it! This just was a waste with those darn balls everywhere. Cute though Feb 07, 2020

  • This play mat is everything! I love that it can be used in multiple ways as baby grows. The pink js feminine and girly. Baby loves the music, lights and all the toys attached. Jan 28, 2020

  • I was so excited when I saw this. My daughter started using it at 1 month old. This has it all, can be wiped clean or thrown in the wash, it folds flat easily to quickly store out of the way. Jan 25, 2020

  • Love that this will grow with my girls. I’m excited to make it a ball pit when they get a little older. Jan 10, 2020

  • If you need one mat for an infant, this is it! The singing and light up elephant along with the mirror make this perfect! My daughter used it daily for tummy and rolling time! Dec 26, 2019

  • Our son absolutely loved this and spent so much time in it. It was a lifesaver for several months as it kept him occupied and happily playing on his own! Dec 10, 2019

  • Concept of this is great, but playing with the balls means they either have to be outside of the pit or throw the balls out of it, and baby hits their head because its too short. Aug 29, 2019

  • My son loves this already! At 2 months he has so much to look at during tummy time and when he gets rolled over. I looked endlessly and found this mat would grow with him the best, so far, I’m right! Aug 28, 2019

  • So many configurations! Was so fun to use as playmat or ball pit! Lots of activities to keep baby entertained. Easy to wipe clean. Aug 27, 2019

  • We have used this almost from day 1, still using it at 6 months. Great for tummy time, rolling, and sitting. The sides offer minimal support but they do soften the fall for a semi supported sitter. Aug 26, 2019

    best activity gym. I highly recommend and think this is a must-have product for any baby. easy to wash Aug 15, 2019

  • Definitely recommend this! My daughter loves this! And it’s great to keep her occupied for a little bit! Aug 08, 2019

  • Love this activity gym! He loves the lights on the elephant and watching the balls roll around. Jun 28, 2019

  • My baby loved the singing elephant and the high contrast toys. The only down side is that the centre of the mat isn’t well cushioned so if using on a hard floor, I would recommend a yoga mat under. Jun 06, 2019

    My LO loves this!! She could be crying and I could lay her down and she stops crying and focuses on the toys May 24, 2019

  • Love this cute play mat! At 15 months, it is still getting a lot of use as a ball pit! We used it for tummy time and all of the crinkly toys really kept baby entertained. May 21, 2019

  • My baby loves the lights and music of elephant. It comes with lots of easily removable toys that can be attached in different positions for your fast growing baby. From tummy time to new sitters. May 13, 2019

  • This is by far the BEST activity gym! The singing elephant lights up and keeps my baby entertained for a long time! Love that it has many toys hanging for her to grab. It also turns into a ball pit! Apr 22, 2019

  • My daughter loves the bright colors. Love how versatile it is and easy to clean too! Mar 02, 2019

  • My baby loves this thing. I got it when he was almost a month old And now he is 7. Every day he loves to grab the toys and play with the balls. Feb 23, 2019

  • My daughter is OBSESSED with this activity gym. The moment she sees the elephant, she starts wiggling her legs like crazy. She loves the music. I can't wait until we can turn it into the ball pit. Feb 06, 2019

  • Great activity gym. Lots of good features. It comes with plastic balls for when baby gets bigger and can sit in as if in a ball pit. Jan 28, 2019

  • I got just the mat in a different design secondhand. Love it! The material is thick & soft. Neat how the sides can fold up into a box or lie flat. My son rolls all over it. Protects carpet & baby. Jan 28, 2019

  • So I dont personally have this but we use it a lot at my sister in laws home. It is the best! Little man loves having his own mini ball pit. Jan 27, 2019

    Not sure the folding sides are necessary and the sound and noise motion activated function doesn't work unless I violently hit it. Mat is big enough for baby to roll and has good selection of toys Dec 29, 2018

  • I got this as a gift and while my daughter was 3-6 months she loved it! It’s a perfect safe space for them to play until they are mobile. She still uses it to this day! Oct 25, 2018

  • We love that this will be a ball pit for her when she is older. So far she enjoys laying under all the dangling toys. Oct 02, 2018

  • Daughter loved this activity gym. It kept her attention Sep 20, 2018

  • This is probably our most used baby item thus far at 6 months! The music and lights from the elephant really keep my son's attention and I like that I can interchange the hanging toys. Sep 10, 2018

  • My baby loves this! I also love how it can convert to flat or have walls up. Also comes with a musical elephant. Wish it came as a neutral gray color Aug 03, 2018

  • Lots of fun toys in this gym and my baby loves the balls in it. Great toy for a baby that sits and doesn't crawl yet. I love the mesh on the side. It keeps him entertained for awhile. Fun sensory toy. Jul 13, 2018

  • My daughter has loved this since about 3 months. All of the toys on it are nice and she loves them. We use them other places too. It’s easy to clean and easy to put the sides up and down. Jul 10, 2018

  • This activity mat is great from birth up. My 1yr old still enjoys playing with it and throwing the added balls into it. Jul 08, 2018

  • I have the more boy version of this. This is amazing. My son is 9 months old and uses it as a ball pit now, but has been using this since day 1 as a mat for tummy time, back time. This is a great gym. Jul 02, 2018
