Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym Overview
This engaging activity gym will keep your child entertained for hours. The playmat comes in two appealing colorways and patterns, with coordinating arches and a pillow for comfortable back and tummy time. The gym’s arches are flexible and they contain padding.
Five detachable multi-sensory toys hang on plastic loops that hook onto the gym’s arches. Among these is a cheerful owl that chimes when shaken, a cute bird with beads that rattle, and an adorable squirrel that squeaks when pressed. There’s also a sweet chirping bird with an attached wooden teething ring and crinkly wings, and a fun apple with tuggable stem and a child-safe mirror. There are five additional loops so that you can attach your baby’s favorite soft toys.
The lightly-padded oversized playmat features a nature-inspired print with raised leaves and flowers set into the fabric. The leaves crunch when squeezed, and one of the flowers makes a noise when pressed. A removable child-safe mirror slots into the tree trunk, while a tummy time pillow provides extra comfort and support.
When the gym becomes too small for your child, removing the arches will enable them to keep using the play mat. The arches can also be removed during tummy time if desired.
