Gymini My Nature Pals {Tiny Love} Giveaway

Nothing is better at achieving those first giggles and batting interaction than an activity gym.  The better ones transform with your growing child, making them a staple for the first year.  The Tiny Love Gymini My Nature Pals playmat caught my eye with its fun characters and modern, bright colors.  On a never-ending plight to keep stark primary colors out of my life, the grassy greens and sunny oranges, alongside the adorable woodland creatures, of the My Nature Pals was a winner.

Gymini activity gym playmat

For the first few months baby won’t do a whole lot and you need to bring the toys to them.  Lying them on their back under hanging objects is the ideal situation.  The visual stimulation is important and it also presents early motivation for interaction (i.e. batting).  Baby will love the Tiny Love My Nature Pals Move & Play Gymini Playmat and all the entertainment is has to offer the senses.  Hanging above baby are cheerful creatures who crinkle or squeak and chew-friendly rings.  An attention grabber is the sunshine mirror, which will keep baby fascinated while he lays on the cushy mat.

Next comes tummy time, which we all know is an important part of any baby’s day.  At this point, the mat’s activities can be adjusted to hang low, in front of tummy timing baby (see below right).  Now you will really see them love that mirror and hold it close.  The Lights & Music Caterpillar that comes with the playmat can sit attached or be separate.  It plays 30 minutes of continuous music, 10 different tunes, all activated by baby.  The music and lights keep baby entertained and since it the caterpillar comes free, they can bring it around with them.  For the final stage of use (6-12 months), unsnap the top activity bars and stow them away.  Now you still have a playmat that works well once baby can sit up by himself.  The mat is great to bring around, think grandma’s house or playdate, and the caterpillar will still be a favorite toy.

The Gymini mats are very customizable, meaning you can move the existing toys around and even add your own.  Baby has a favorite stroller toy?  Add it onto the playmat.  Baby doesn’t like the mirror?  Remove it.  The soft playmat is an ideal place for baby to lay and squirm, a real hub for their favorite toys to all hang.  Check out other Tiny Love Gymini Activity Gyms as they come in other awesome styles.

    btw can you please add your link to top mommy blogs in your rafflecopter? it says “right hand sidebar” but the right hand sidebar doesn’t exist in your single post page template. i’m sure people are claiming this entry and aren’t actually voting! this would avoid that.
