I love thisplay mat and so does my 4 month old daughter!
I old play mat had seen better days so I ventured out to replace it. I could not believe the cost of play mats! Sure, they do everything under the sun from music and lights to toys but at the average cost of $60, I wasn't ready to commit to something I would only use a few months.
After searching area baby stores, I found the Baby Einstein Gym. It plays music, has lots of bright colors, comes with toys to hang for baby to play with, a small mirror and a bright, colorful mat.
There are 8 hooks for you to move the toys around. I have even added my own toys for a little more variety. Ther eis a spot to put a picture of you or your family for baby to see.
The star that plays music also has lights. My only complaint is the length of the music played is very short. I wish it was longer as my daughter seems to like enjoy it.
