3 month old, active toys

My nearly 3 month old is very active all of a sudden and wants to be up and moving, her mind is very eager but the body strength obviously isn't there yet! She sits on us and keeps lunging forward to explore for example.

She has fairly good head control, and strong little legs but I don't want to push her into doing stuff she can't. I think she's too young for a jumparoo but at the same time lying on a playmat with dangly toys doesn't cut it after a while. Is there anything else I could get that would challenge her and have her interested, but not push too hard?

Hi, she sounds an eager girl! I took my son to baby sensory classes which he loved and got a bubble machine and some ribbons for him to grab at. He had some soft stacking blocks and someone lent me a bumbo which supported him sitting up but he is a tall/chunky boy so not sure if that would be appropriate for you. He went in the jumperoo from about 18/19 weeks and was so happy.

Lots of tummy time with soft balls or teething toys to reach for might be good too. Also I took him swimming and he had a sit in float that supported his back and head, he really liked the freedom.

I'm not an expert obviously but he seemed to enjoy these things and was definitely stimulated by them. Good luck

There are some good tummy time playmats with mirrors etc... www.argos.co.uk/product/4833895

This spinning play mat is the next step up from a playmat with a tummy time cushion. www.argos.co.uk/product/3857638

There are a couple of playmats with piano type toys at the bottom www.argos.co.uk/product/5557998
