The Spin & Explore Mat puts a unique spin on tummy time play, an important developmental phase for all newborns. Babies gently and comfortably spin round on their tummies, stretching and building upper bodies while exploring lots of squeaky, crinkly, tactile fun. DIMENSIONS: 14" X 17.25" X 6"
Another gift that we received when AppleBlossom was born from some coworkers of my husband was the Lamaze Spin and Explore Mat. You gotta love this ladybug! The leaves near the earthworm and the wings of the butterfly crinkle and they are definitely the favorite parts for AppleBlossom, yet more and more she is finding another interesting piece. She cannot squeeze it, but she loves to hear me squeeze the birdie who will then chirp for her. Also she loves to hear the bumblebee buzz his rattle. Then it almost goes without saying how she is enjoying the mirror. At first she would just be still and look, now she grasps the mat and kicks with her legs and pulls herself round. It is so fun to watch her learn and grow!
I absolutely love the intelligent design of this toy with making the birdie squeak/chirp and the bumblebee rattle/buzz as they do in real life. I find that highly educational and praise the design. It is far less confusing that such toys that have purple zebras and such.
