When my wife wanted to buy the the Fisher-Price Kick and Play Piano Gym I thought she was just in a pre-baby spending mode. I saw there were a lot of cheaper gyms out there and suggested we got one of those. I’m so glad she put her foot down and we bought this.
This has been used since just after birth by both our daughters. They absolutely love kicking the piano and making the music come on. The attached toys are also just tantalizingly out of reach so they have to put a bit of effort in to get them.
Whenever I’m holding the baby and she won’t settle on me I put her down on the gym and she seems to settle straight away. It also seems to really help with wind as the kicking motion helps release it.
I would recommend this to anyone who is due to have a baby or has a newborn. I would have to say that my eldest probably lost interest at about 14 months, however now that her sister has arrived she likes going on it at the same time as her.
I would have to say that this gym is one of the best purchases we have made. It seems to distract the child for long enough for you to do something meaningful. From looking at the Amazon reviews it seems I’m not the only one who thinks this.
