As my nephew’s arrival grew closer I started thinking about toys. Infant toys are often so ordinary and blah for the first few months. I wanted to find something neat that the baby could play with that would also benefit him. Learning Curve offered me the opportunity to check out a new product, Lamaze Tummy Time Air, that looked like it was right in line with what I was looking for.
ABOUT LAMAZE TUMMY TIME AIR
Parents have known and trusted the Lamaze® brand for more than 50 years. Building on that trusted brand, Learning Curve’s Lamaze line remains dedicated to offering parents products that focus on infant development, while at the same time providing opportunities for them to bond and interact with baby.
Tummy Time is an important developmental phase for all newborns, and Lamaze Tummy Time Air offers baby a fun and comfortable opportunity for encouraging tummy time play. This innovative activity gym features two ends of play with bright colors and large, friendly eyes inviting baby to focus on a single object, thus supporting healthy eye development. As baby lies across the mat’s tummy section, the flexible, breathable mesh material adapts to baby’s body, distributing baby’s torso weight evenly and minimizing the pressure on baby’s abdomen. Fun features include a mirror sun for self-discovery, crinkle corn for stimulating baby’s hearing, a tractor teether and loops to easily attach additional toys.
I received a Lamaze Tummy Time Air. This is not your typical activity toy where your your baby can only lay on his back and not interact. This pediatrician tested and approved toy is made for baby to be on his or her stomach, interacting with the toy and his or her environment. The 14.25 ” x 8.75 ” mat is beautiful, full of big, bright, colorful pictures to attract your baby’s gaze and develop vision.The washable polyester mat is soft and sturdy but not so heavy that it would make baby hot. A breathable mesh “bridge” (also called the tummy section of the toy) comes with the toy, you place it under baby’s chest and tummy so they can better support themselves and check out the environment around them. The nice thing about this piece is that it’s sturdy enough to help support and distribute your baby’s weight while being flexible enough to adapt to your baby’s body. One of the things that’s always amused me to watch is babies watching themselves in a mirror. A sun mirror comes with this toy that when standing is at or near baby’s eye level, encouraging self-discovery. There are loops to attach your baby’s favorite toys, and it comes with a tractor teether and a crinkle corn for stimulating hearing. I love that this toy is interesting while being helpful in developing coordination and head control. I think this is a great toy for any new baby and would be a great gift.
The Lamaze Tummy Time Air is available for purchase online and in select stores and has a suggested retail price of $33.99
ONE winner will receive a Lamaze Tummy Time Air.
