We’re big fans of Tiny Love products – they’re bright, cheerful and well-designed. So I wasn’t too surprised to be utterly impressed when we received the My Nature Pals mobile and play mat. I let E try out the play mat even though she was just a month old at the time, and our friend K (who’s several months older) really had fun with it.
The Gymini My Nature Pals play mat features a soft, round activity mat styled to look like a fun, friendly and welcoming “nature environment” for baby to discover. The smiley faced Lights & Music Caterpillar toy hangs from the arches and puts on a show for baby that can play up to 20 minutes. The toy can also be set so the lights will be activated by baby’s touch and detaches from the arches for separate play. Also, a soft frog, beaver and other toys hang from arches to offer baby additional activities. The toys can also be removed and used for floor play or attached to travel gear. The arches feature the same “smart motion system” as the Gymini Move ‘n Play activity mat, allowing them to be repositioned in a variety of ways as a baby develops and becomes mobile. The mat retails for $64.99 and is available at various retailers and Amazon.com.
The My Nature Pals mobile is equally as cute. It has friendly-faced figures that rotate using Tiny Love’s patented movement system and lights that fade in and out between the figures for an engaging display. The mobile’s modern nature-inspired design features fabric and plastic elements. Nine different tunes play for up to 30 minutes through high quality speakers that have a variable volume adjustment. The music and light features can be used independently or together, and the mobile detaches when baby grows so the music box can remain on the crib. I love that it’s versatile and can be used for a long time.
I think you’ll love these items just as much as we do – they’re fun, engaging and well-made, and are things your baby can enjoy for a long time to come.
