We bought this play centre for our first daughter who wanted to stand up all the time from 5 months but was way of walking, she loved it so much and got months of use from it, we have now got it out again for our second daughter and she loves it just as much, she gets so excited when we sit her in it and shrieks with delight when she gets the animals to make a noise. She loves being in it whilst im completeing some chores as she can play and watch me but be kept safe at the same time. I love that it is so easy to clean if they have any spit ups in it the seat comes off and can be machine washed and its designed so well that there re no nooks and crannies that you cnt get to with a cloth which is unusua for a toy. It still looks as new even though two children have had good use from it. The only thing that they could improve it with is having another sound facility o the other side of the activity centre. Being a nanny i have seen so many play centres and this is definitly the most practical, easy clean and stimulting ne on the market.
