I am fairly ambivalent about them
neither of mine were that interested in them early on.
by the time they were vaguely interested they were also rolling and would roll into the sides and get tangled up.
and they got frustrated by not being able to erach the stuff, or, once they could reach it not being able to pull it off and eat it lol

so, persoanlly I wouldn't spend a lot of money on one. but I am sure there are plenty of other
"normal" babies who love them grin

yes the baby einstein one does look nice

tbh N is not good at being awake hmm and i am feeling a bit desparate !

do you think they are worth it? I cannot remember how long they go under them?

ahh yes, I had one of those. sadly he screamed despite the gym, and the rocking swing, and erm, pretty much everything. eep

oh yes, I had forgotten about how he just trashed it once he was bigger.

I have that one
It is well made
It takes up a lot of room
The hanging toys seem popular
The bolts need tightening occasionally
It looks nice in the room
I have put cork circle under the wheels as I think walkers are dangerous
Occasionally a bay will bump his/her head on the bottom circle

oooh when did he stop? erm.

this was posted in feb,. so he'd have been about 4 months old. and he was getting better then.

it's very sad that I had to look on ther eto find out though

KatyMac Mon 29-Sep-08 22:18:04

Well it was for me - but I do have quite a lot of children to use it
