I have never regretted picking out the Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym (blue) for our little girl. We have used this from the day that we left the hospital until now-- 5 months later. I don't anticipate her losing interest in it any time soon.

In the early weeks, we packed it around the house from room to room to give her a safe, clean place to sleep and play when we needed two hands and didn't want to wear her (there is a limited number of hours in a day that I could carry the extra weight!). The bottom side is durable enough to go outside on the grass and cement, and it comes apart easily to wash in the washing machine.

When moving around the house, it's light enough to pick up from the top (when open) with one hand and keep the baby in the other arm. It's small enough when folded to strap to the outside of her diaper bag and tote with us when we know we'll be away from home for a few hours. When we're outside, we drape a towel over the top or open an umbrella over it to shade her from the sun.

Now that she's five months old, she still loves the mat and the toys. The nice part is that you can connect other toys to the top, too, so that your baby won't get bored of the same ones.

I use this item DAILY. I love the portability and fact that she's gotten use out of one item for at least 5 months-- I don't think there's anything else I can say that about. I highly recommend this mat!

I originally purchased this Activity gym because it was the least "baby-ish" of all that I looked at.  I did not want a primary-colored activity gym taking up huge space in the living room.  This one is, by far, the cutest one I have seen.  We have received a number of compliments on it.  Orange, green, blue and brown were so much nicer than red, yellow and blue.  I also love that it does not have tv characters on it.  Just generic animals.

I love that it is collapsible for easier transport and storage.  I do wish it had a storage bag.  We repurposed a bag from something else so that we could easily throw it in the back of the car for play dates.

Now that my son can sit up, he is almost too tall for it.  I wish the arches were a little bit taller to allow for seated play.

The fabric is super-easy to clean.  It can be set up with one hand which is imperative when the other hand is holding a squirmy baby.

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

After looking at many other activity mats that where much more expensive, I decided on this one- the Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym. I'm so glad I did! I got the "boy" one even though it was for my daughter. The colors and patterns are gorgeous. The price is just right for this mat. Although it easy to take on the go, it is still a sturdy, full size activity mat.
The mat is really quite nice. It isn't flimsy at all, it is padded and soft. I have washed it what seems like 100 times and it has held up very well, with no fading or tears.

There are five really nice toys that come with the mat- an elephant, a monkey, a lion, a giraffe that plays music, and a mirror. The animals are all attached with links, so they can be moved around to different places on the mat. They were very popular toys at my house and we often clipped them to the car seat and took them with us. My daughter was playing with the toys long after she had outgrow the mat!

Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym is a favorite

By 

from Hermon, ME

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

We really like the Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym.  It is nicely padded and give some protection from our hardwood floors.  It is also great because it really does twist and fold.  We have a small space and it is easily folded up and put out of the way when not in use.  It can be folded with one hand.  The bottom mat detaches easily and can be thrown in the washing machine and comes out looking like new.  There are extra loops on the upper part for attaching additional toys.  When we first started using this mat, the toys were a bit high for my baby to reach but he still liked to look at them.  Now that he is a bit bigger he can reach them no problem and has fun pulling on them and batting at them.  I love all the bright colors and patterns as well.  It has been great for us because we can take it with us when we go away and it doesn't take up much room in the car and it gives our baby a familiar place to play when we are somewhere new.

Its cheap, so we purchased it

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

When I had my son, I realized that I'd given away my daughter's baby gym and we needed a new one. Having received our first baby gym as a gift, I had no idea of the atrocious prices these things go for! Since I knew my son would be using the baby gym for a relatively short amount of time, I decided to forgo the rave reviews of the other brands and instead focus on price. At the time of purchase, the Infantino gym was on sale for twenty bucks and there was no way I was going to pass up on that price. The Infantiny Activity Gym is pretty cool. The colors are not your traditional baby colors, which makes it look cool. There's just the right amount of toys hanging off the gym and very quickly my son found a favorite one. The only down-side to this baby gym is that while the manufacturer's description states that you can fold and open it one-handed, the truth is you can't (and shouldn't). The twist and fold feature makes it so you have to twist your own body a bit to get it to close. With a newborn in one hand, this is impossible.

This Infantino Activity Mat is excellent!

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

We received this play mat as a gift, and it was been wonderful for baby!  Even before our son was old enough to really want to grab things, he still liked laying on the mat, and looking up at the bright colors and the mirror.  The colors are just wonderful, and so cute!

I really like the way the mat sets up.  It's really easy to break down and store away, this would be great for people who don't have a lot of space to just leave the thing set up all the time.  The toys aren't attached, but I think that's a positive because you can move them around according to which ones the baby likes best.

 

The mat itself is really easy to detach from the frame, so you can wash it (as we know, babies can get baby-goo everywhere!).  

 

I like that each of the toys does something different... one has crinkle-ears, one plays music, one is a rattle, one has a jingle bell inside.  It's just great!

 

Our son is now to a phase where he DOES like to grab things, and he's having lots of fun!

My son really loves his Infantino Activity Gym!

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

I have a 4 month old and he loves his play mat!  He loves to lay on his back and just kick and look at the different animals.  He likes to play with them too!  He will hold on to them and push them and listen to the sounds they make.  He likes to listen to the music that the giraffe makes.  I just wish the music lasted for longer, because I have to sit there and just push it repeatedly. 

I really like the design and colors of the activity gym.  It has lots of different colors and a bunch of contrast colors, but it is not too babyish, which is a lot of the reason I really liked it at first.  It is also able to stand upright, like a tent, or if you push the top part down, it will be more arched, allowing for more space.  It comes with a little matching pillow to help prop the baby up.  He can also use it to play with.  It has a mirror which he can look in and 4 different animals to play with.

We really like ours and would recommend it to anyone!  It is really easy to put together and my son is always so happy when he is playing on it!

My baby's favorite toy

By 

from Wentzville, MO

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

This Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym is so cute and so much fun for babies.  My two-month-old loves it!  The bright colors (orange, turquoise, brown, yellow, green, etc.) and fun patterns really entice him.  The adorable animal toys that hang from the mat mesmorize him for minutes at a time- and that is a long time for such a little baby! He especially loves the giraffe, which plays "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" when you press a button.  You can also add your own other toys from the attached loops. The mirror is another nice feature, as most babies are very intrigued by mirrors.  The mat itself is soft and cushy, so I don't have to worry about him laying on the floor on it.  It also folds up nicely, so it doesn't take up so much room.  That is a huge plus, as my house is littered with baby stuff everywhere!

I am especially fond of this toy, because I know it is educational and fun for my baby.  It is so nice for "tummy time" and quality time with your baby.  I highly recommend this toy for mommies of small babies.

Fun For Baby, Easy To Transport

By 

from Mc Lean, VA

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

This is our baby's favorite toy. She loves swatting and grabbing the hanging animals and listening to the rattles. She hasn't become bored with it, despite the passing of several months. She's constantly learning new ways to interact with it, and it's fun to watch her understanding grow.

We especially like that this activity gym folds up. It is so convenient to be able to quickly disassemble the mat and take it on the go. It keeps our daughter entertaining while we are visiting friends and family members. 

The only back draw for us, and it's a slight one, is that this mat isn't great for tummy time when they are very little. The mat is made of a plasticky fabric that makes it very easy to clean. But, that fabric is slippery for unsure little hands and arms that are learning to hold themselves up for the first time. Once our baby got better and holding up her head, this wasn't a problem. But, when she was very young, her arms slid out from underneath her many times.

Great Toy Mat

By 

from Longwood, FL

Comments about Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym:

The Infantino 206-353 Twist and Fold Activity Gym in Vintage Blue is a wonderful toy. I am able to spread out on the floor, lay the baby down and get some much needed work done. The Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym has two bars that have four toy attachments to hang the adorable toys (one which is a Giraffe with a musical button that plays Twinkle Twinkle Little star) to provide entertainment for the baby. There is also a mirror that has velcro backing that makes you able to attach it to one of the bars to hang above the baby. The Infantino Twist and Fold Activty Gym has soft, durable fabric that is easy to clean with a cloth or can handle a washing machine cycle. It is also able to fold up nicely to minimize the amount of space it takes up in storage. The only problem I have found with the Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym is that when its folded up, there is no strap to secure the fabric. Otherwise, great product and highly recommended.
