    Our 5 month old boy loves this mat and has been using it since about 2.5 months. At first he just loved staring at the mirror and watching the musical ladybug, but now he is very interactive with the hanging toys. We did purchase a few extra toys that we thought would work well with it just to mix things up and keep it interesting for him. Some other mats had better toys but we went with this because of the walls. It helps define his space so our dog doesnt mess with him when he is playing. It also held up well after I washed it. love it! (And my sis has the pink version and loved it too!)

    I registered for this item and received it as a gift and now I am telling all of my expectant friends to not bother with this model. It was difficult to put together and it's not interactive at all. The mat is large but that's the only positive spin I can put on this product. The sides and cross bars are NOT sturdy and the toys are overpriced for what you can get with other models. I would recommend an activity mat that has a mobile in the center of the cross bars- this one serves as an overpriced blanket for your floor.

      Comments about Kids II 1001174 Bright Starts Baby's Play Place Playmat - Neutral:

      The bars above the playmat were a little tough to put together with the mat and toys because the directions were unclear but it's not rocket science so you can figure it out. This playmat has helped me so much. I can put baby in it and make and eat lunch or quickly go to the bathroom while he plays. Or, it also lets him play and discover on his own. There is so much to look at that I feel like each time he focuses on something else so he never gets bored.

      The best part is that if you put the sides up, baby can kick the sides and it makes all of the hanging toys shake. This only gets him more excited and then he kicks more and it keeps shaking. So essentially he can entertain himself. If the Velcro held up the sides better, this would be more effective but binder clips solved that quickly.

      The only down side (if you can call it that) is that there is so much to look at that you need to be mindful of when baby gets overstimulated. It can easily go from a happy and fun playtime to crying. But I think that is any toy and you should be watching your baby anyway.

        We have been using this product since our baby was three days old! It has been used a portable bassinet before she could move and roll. Now she just loves to play in it. There are so many ways to use and move the items around she never gets bored. Actually she gets mad if it is in the washer.

        Yes I have washed & dried the product multiple times and it is showing no wear! I would reccomment it to anyone! Much better than just a playmat (which we have too). Also it has tons of room for it to grow with her!

          We use this for tummy time and play time with our 6 week old. We hung toys from the top with two rings so she can reach them with her feet and hands. She will kick the toys for about 20 minutes before she has had enough excitement! I see us using this play mat until she can crawl and is no longer interested in laying down to play. The toys will still be useful though!

          Expensive But Adorable

          Comments about Kids II 1001174 Bright Starts Baby's Play Place Playmat - Neutral:

          I received this as a shower gift and it had been the one on my registry. I'm not due for another 6 weeks, so I can't comment on whether my baby likes it or not - but that wouldn't really be helpful anyway, as every child is different and just because MY baby likes/dislikes it, doesn't mean that yours will feel the same.

          It was difficult to put together - and I single handedly put together my son's dresser, crib, and changing table, so it's not like I'm not good at these things. I had a friend help me, and together we were able to figure it out.

          Some reviews say that it is not sturdy. I DISAGREE. The sides attach with Velcro. However, since putting it together, and putting the sides up, I have moved it around my house several times and the sides haven't come down once. I've moved it from a table to the floor, into the crib, onto my bed, back onto the floor - all by holding those beams that cross - and I'm not gentle. I tossed it a few times, and it's still completely together.

          One comment - Although you definitely don't NEED it, I would recommend buying an extra set of connecting rings, so that the toys hang down a little lower and your little one can touch them. There are so many loops and tabs that can have toys and rings attached to them, I wanted to have something hanging off of every loop!

          Overall, it definitely IS pricey, but I find it VERY sturdy and lots of fun! And I love that the sides fold up to keep baby feeling cozy, and to keep the dogs out of his personal space.

            Fantastic playgym. It's been perfect for my lil boy he is fascinated by the blue elephant, he just adores it. However for the price having more up to date music options it would make it 5 stars but I must point out the sides are not as sturdy as I thought they would be. Still a fantastic buy I would definitely recommend this.

                  I am a grand-mom and love this product. It folds up nicely in the bag and easily stored when my grandbabies are not visiting. It keeps the baby safe with the sides up. You can place it on the floor, or on a bed for an infant and not worry about them rolling out. The toys that hang with the mirror are great for newborns and up. I would recommend this for every mom's registry and grandparent gift idea.

                    we chose this specific model because it had side walls. We have a large dog who likes to lay on anything that is on the ground. With the sides up, he actually lays next to it, while we play with our son. We have had no issues with keeping the sides up, attaching the bars etc. Our baby is 6 weeks old and loves being in it on his back or his tummy.

                      This playmat was the first thing our baby actually "played with." He loved the music, the colors, and the hanging toys. Even before he could grab and bat at the toys he loved lying on the mat and looking at them. The small pillow is great for tummy time - just the right size. The walls on this mat also helped us teach our dogs boundaries with the baby when he was on the floor. We love this product!

                        I didn't like the product with the sides up. It didn't stay up very well. I decided to lay it out flat with the bars locked in on front. It was perfect this way. My baby loves the bright colors and loves when I move the bars so the toys can sway back and forth. She also loves the cheesy music.

                        My son absolutely loved this. We had it up in the box position when he was 2-4 months and then we put it down for the rest. He loved the toys and when we moved them around it was like we put him in a different play mat every time. He loved the mirror and the ladybug that plays music. It was nice because it is a nice material to clean up on and had enough traction that he could do tummy time.
