With a new baby on the way I am just loving all of the new products available for babies! I remember when my first was born they had just come out with portable swings and I thought they were the neatest things ever but oh how times have changed. There are so many products available it can become quite tantalizing trying to decide exactly what you need for baby. We were sent a Mamas & Papas Octopus Playmat to try out and I have to say this is one of the cutest tummy time playmats I have ever seen! Tummy time has been really pushed throughout the last few years. My babies all hated tummy time but I knew it was important that they received at least a few minutes a couple times a day to reduce the risk of flat head syndrome and to help their little muscles develop.
This fun Octopus playmat & activity gym includes 4 hanging, removable toys which encourage your baby to reach out and grab encouraging interaction and hand-eye co-ordination. Your baby will also discover fun noises which stimulate hearing and promotes cause and effect learning whilst the baby safe mirror helps develop self awareness. Includes hidden noises, textures and crinkly areas. The activity gym arches can be removed as baby grows, or to have Tummy/Quiet Time. The whole mat is easy to pack away with it’s re-usable bag.
The adorable face of the octopus puts a smile on my face every time I see it. The padded wedge/pillow helps promote tummy time which as I mentioned above helps babys arm, neck and back muscles strengthen.
The activity bar is detachable so when baby is ready to sit up on their own that can play safely without getting whacked in the head. I love that it easily buckles and unbuckles in and out to make attaching and removing the bar simple and painless.
Each of the toys either rattle or squeak and they are all removable so you can move them around on the mat or on the activity bar.
Baby is sure to have a blast with the octopus legs. Each leg has fun textures, colors, patterns and crinkly sounds to keep baby entertained.
I cannot wait for Baby6 to get here and play in this adorable tummy time play mat!
