I looked at 10 to 20 exersaucers and read tons of reviews until I finally decided on this one. I personally liked the design [hubby says I picked it more for me than our girl! :)], plus I LOVE the fact that it has more than one function. Baby things are way too expensive, and since this one grows with her it's great! I haven't used the floorgym, since she already had one she loved, but she is at the exersaucer stage and having a blast. Didn't like it at first, but then I realized it was because she couldn't get close enough to anything to chew (and she was teething something horrible!). Once I dropped a toy or two on the table, she was happy as can be-the only thing, of course, is she winds up throwing those in the floor. Now she spins all the way around, playing for a good amount of time-sometimes longer than the "recommended" time but I've learned she gets more upset if we try to pull her out before she's done. We did end up switching the parrot and the dragonfly (the parrot kept...
The appeal to me of this learning center was that it has three stages of use so that you can get a lot of life out of it. That is certainly true, but I found that there are definite gaps between the stages. Below I have reviewed each stage as we have used it so far.
Floor Mat (2 stars) - I did not start using this right away with my daughter because I honestly didn't even think about opening the box at first. I had another activity mat that I had been using with her, and that one had lights, music, various textures, etc to keep her occupied. This mat is essentially a glorified changing pad that has a toy bar to sit over it. By the time I thought to use it with my daughter, probably around 2 months, she would grab the bar and pull the whole thing towards herself. It is very lightweight and nothing anchors it to the ground aside from equally lightweight plastic feet. Once she pulled on it, it really wasn't in the right position for her to actually play with the toys,...
I purchased this bc my 3 month old seemed to be getting very bored and there is only so much I can do to entertain her at her age. She usually tags along with me in her baby bjorn carrier while I'm doing chores around our apartment. I realized she had limited head control so wouldn't use much for a while.
When it arrived earlier than expected I took it out and was overwhelmed by the springs to make it bounce and all the plastic pieces and what not. I looked at the directions though and to my surprise they were CLEAR AND EASY TO READ AND FOLLOW! Being a single mom with 3 kids and one clingy baby this was a huge relief that assembly instructions were so good. I have alwayshad bad luck with instructions in the past.
There are a variery of toys that are easy to snap off (for an adult not baby) to clean if needed and a snack tray with cup holder that can also snap off if needed to wash well. My baby will be 4 months in 9 days and will sit in there for about 10 -20...
