Lamaze's Spin and Explore Garden Gym is an exciting way to help your kiddo enjoy tummy time. The discovery mat is separated into 5 captivatingly colored petals with birds, bumblebees and butterflies, inspiring baby to explore. At the center is the best seat in the house, the rotating platform. There your little one will have the perfect position to spin and play while strengthen their muscles.
Designed for use from birth up to 24 months, the award-winning Lamaze Spin and Explore Garden Gym introduces a new format for tummy time, one of the key developmental phases of a newborn. Developed in conjunction with pediatricians and child development experts from Yale University, this colorful mat encourages baby to spin and explore the world on their tummy, which helps them develop the muscle strength necessary for sitting up and crawling.
Tummy time is an important developmental activity for newborns. During the first months of life, babies learn how to move their bodies and gain the necessary physical strength for rolling over, sitting up, and crawling. Besides the physical benefits of tummy time, giving your infant playtime on his belly will help minimize any flat spots on his head that may have come from sleeping on his back.
The Spin and Explore offers both you and your baby a soft and safe space to make tummy time a pleasurable part of everyday activities. Baby can gently and comfortably spin around on her tummy, stretching and strengthening her upper and lower body while enjoying lots of squeaky, crinkly, tactile fun. After your baby can sit up on her own, you can remove the spinner and let her take advantage of the other visually and physically stimulating features, like the peek-a-boo leaf flap and mirror.
Fun, Innovative Design
Winner of Redbook's "Hottest Toys of the 2007 Holiday Season," and a Toy Insider 2007 Top 20 pick, the Spin and Explore provides an innovative platform with a unique shape and rotating motion to encourage exploration and give babies the confidence they need to try new things. As his coordination grows, baby is more likely to want to attempt new skills--like twirling around on his tummy to visit his garden pals for tactile play, interaction that motivates him to hold his head up, use his legs, and spin on his stomach.
The Spin and Explore can be used with or without the platform and also includes little loops to attach other toys to the play mat. It measures 28.0 x 5.5 x 28.0 inches (WxHxD) and comes with a garden-theme play mat, spinning platform, and ladybug platform cover. It also includes a 90 day limited warranty.
