Yes, you can carry your baby around 24/7. But at some point, you’re going to need to set the kid down, and that’s why you need an activity center. But not just any activity center. Skip Hop activity centers for babies are some of the most thoughtful ones you can buy, because they’re well-crafted, with lots of engaging developmental details. But all that detail comes at a price, so we’re stoked to see a major sale underway on play mats and activity centers.
This baby play mat and activity center encourages tummy time, and provides plenty of sensory stimulation. It features a musical sheep toy, a squeaker, a rattle, and a mirror.
Another great option for tummy time, this play mat and activity center for babies has five hanging toys: A plush tomato, an avocado rattle, a beet squeaker, a carrot with tactile ribbons, and musical bunny with carrot teether.
Once your baby can hold his or her head up, put him or her in this activity center. It’s fully loaded with a squeaking cloud, a rattling lamb, swaying stars, and spinning bead toys. The weight limit is 25 pounds and when your baby outgrows it, it converts into a toddler table.
This very pretty activity center has 25 things to keep your baby occupied. But best of all, your kid can stare at his or her feet while playing. Which is mad entertaining.
