All The Activities!

Ah, the age of fun. The boys are finally at the age where they’re becoming intereseted in activities. Whether that be tummy time, sit-me-up seats, swings or more. I thought I’d give a review on our favorite activities for our current age. By the way, we’re four months now, the time truly flies when you’re having fun!

Evenflo Splash Mega Exersaucer

What is it?

An exersaucer is an activity seat that provides multiple options for baby to explore. This specific seat rotates 360° so baby can reach all the toys, has springs so baby can jump and the base is rounded so baby can move even more! It’s really a great way for baby to self-entertain and develop fine motor skills while playing with the multiple toys.

Why do we love it?

I personally love this seat for two reasons. First, it’s hands free! I can put Dax or Emrick in it (with support) and they’re able to look at the bright colors and reach for toys. The second reason I love this seat is due to the adaptability. The seat grows and adapts to your growing baby. Starting from four months up till the baby outgrows the chair. It’s really a game changer when we consider costs of all the gear babies acquire of their first year of life.

Where can I buy it?

Evenflo actually discontinued this specific style, but you can still find the mega-saucer in many stores and on Amazon under a different name. The seat is generally $50-90.

Skip Hop Tree Top Friends Play Mat

What is it?

Activity mats are a wonderful thing! Activity mats are usually soft, plush mats with arches that include small toys and some times a tummy time pillow. The one we have is actually a called “Vibrant Village” it has lights in the arches, is black and white and has pops of color. Activity mats are a great way to encourage rolling, scooting and fine motor skills such as kicking and head control.

Why do we love it?

Need a place to “park” a baby, an activity mat is a great place! I generally have the boys on the mat first thing in the morning, first thing in the afternoon and sometimes in the evening. I always place Dax’s feet near the arches, he is a big kicker and when he gets going the toys hanging really move. In turn, this catches his attention and makes him a happy camper. Additionally, if Emrick is laying with him it’s a two for one deal!

Where can I buy it?

Activity mats vary in pricing based on sizes and features. You can buy them on Amazon, at Wal-mart and so many more places!

Fisher Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat

What is it?

Sit me up seats are fairly new to me. When my last baby girl was born five years ago, they were non-existent. Now a days, these seats are a supportive seat meant to help baby learn to sit up. It’s a great tool and fun for baby.

Why do we love it?

This is another “parking” station for baby. Need your hands free? Set baby up and while baby gets used to his new views, you’ll be able to wash the dishes. If you get the deluxe version, this also doubles as a great small high chair.

Where can I buy it?

Sit-Me-Up seats are available in a variety of brands and styles from Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target and more!

Fisher Price Infant-to-Toddler Rocker

What is it?

The Infant-to-Toddler Rocker is exactly as it sounds, a rocking chair that can be used from wee little newborns up to a 40-lb toddler. Let’s be honest, my 5 year old can still fit in it! the rocker has various uses and comes with a small toy bar to entertain.

Why do we love it?

This is a mega-rocker! Not only do you have the option to vibrate baby, the rocker comes with a kick stand to make it stationary. Got twins? This is a great way to feed both at the same time! Additionally, if you have bouncing baby boys like us, you’ll find the babies are able to rock themselves, shaking the toy bar and makes it super fun!

Where can I buy it?

As with most things, Amazon, Wal-mart and Target all have their own versions and styles of these chairs.

I certainly hope this helps you decide what activity centers to buy for your little babes!

Xo, Sabrina.
