And the Winner Is: Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud Baby’s View Activity Center

Keeping baby entertained can be a full time job—and let’s face it, sometimes you need a break. An activity center can safely occupy your little one while you drink a hot cup of coffee (remember those?) or make baby’s next meal. The Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud is a home run in every baby’s book—and ours too. The plush seat rotates 360 degrees, allowing baby to spin and stretch. An adjustable foot platform provides plenty of entertainment with its light-up musical piano and bounce potential (there’s even a peekaboo window so baby can watch their toes jam out). Clip-on toys can be swapped out for a fresh sensory experience, while a suction snack bowl holds nibbles. Our favorite feature is its growth potential. Once baby starts to take those first teetering steps, they can get their sea legs while taking laps around the center. And when walking is old hat, the activity center transforms to a toddler table complete with chalkboard for more exploratory play. You can even purchase a set of chairs (separately) to complete the set.

What We Love

• The seat rotates a full 360 degrees, allowing baby to swivel to reach new toys and get the best views

• An adjustable foot platform lets baby jump and bounce, plus a built-in piano (and peekaboo window) gives baby a sensory musical experience

• The activity center comes with toys that can be rotated in and out, plus a dishwasher-safe snack bowl—talk about entertainment!

• When baby outgrows the seat, they can practice standing and cruising; when they’ve mastered that, the table transforms into a play table for crafts and more
