And the Winner Is: The Play Gym by Lovevery

Babies need space to stretch and strengthen their little bodies and diversions to stimulate their senses as they learn more about the world around them. Playmats are the ideal place for that, and the Play Gym by Lovevery is pretty much as perfect a playmat as they come. Designed by child development experts, this gym has set itself apart from the competition and won over the hearts of millennial moms and dads. Why? Because it’s as gorgeous as it is development-boosting, and it helps guide first-time parents through age-appropriate play for baby’s entire first year.

What We Love

• This activity gym features removable, organic cotton and sustainably sourced wooden toys that attach to the gym’s wooden legs, perfect for entertaining infants on their backs as well as babies who can sit and crawl; it even comes with a tent cover to create a fun play space for older babies and toddlers

• The mat features five fold-out development zones that promote sensory activities and strengthen baby’s focus without overstimulating your little one; simply open and close them as you go

• Forget stressing over which activities you should be doing with baby at every age and stage—this gym comes with a Play Guide booklet that outlines how you can play with your little one to help them hit their milestones

• Setup is easy-breezy and tool-free, and the mat is machine-washable
