Cute Arch
By CH540

Verified Buyer
I loved the idea of being able to slide my phone into the slot without distracting the baby. When I actually got to use this product the slot for the phone is way too tight. The dancing fox never danced no matter how much noise the baby or we made. Every other feature works fine and baby is very interested in.

Great mat, love all the different toys and how the arch can be moved. Only thing is I can't store it when we are not using it, would be nice if there was a way to fold it up easily.

Nice playmat

My son loves it! It was fairly easy to put together and take apart when a piece was put backwards. The phone pouch is such a cute idea, but the sleeve is really too tight to properly place a phone in it. Cute mat though and my son absolutely LOVES the little dancing fox.

Amazing Arch
By Megan
from Calgary, AB

Verified Buyer
Pros: Love the arch with multiple positions; Baby plays with the interactive toys and is interested in them; Pillow helps support newborn with tummy time; Great design.

Cons: My hooting owl never 'hooted' from day one; Toys are too high and out of reach for my three month old (I had to use additional links to lower the toys; My phone does not fit in the phone pocket behind the mirror.

Overall I love the amazing arch and would recommend it. There are some flaws, but I have been able to work around them.

This skip hop explore and more amazing arch activity gym is so neat! My son loves the arch he doesn’t like tummy time so having the arch doesn’t happen to much, but I love that he can use it later on when he can sit unassisted! I love the phone slot feature as well I can FaceTime him or he can watch something! My only gripe was it was a bit hard to assemble the mat to the arch and the phone sleeve is a bit tight ( I have a iPhone 6s) I have to take my phone case off and it’s still snug.
  • Very engaging
  • Interactivee
  • Multifunctional
Best Uses
  • Will be able to use for some time!
  • Baby to toddler
  • Arch was hard to connect to mat
  • Phone sleeve is very snug
Poor choice of toys

The hedgehog failed after 2 months. The owl is cute but hard to pull for an infant to make the noise, and you can't replace the batteries in the hedgehog.
We love that it folds down for tummy time and that you can attach additional toys. Overall not terrible since my LO loves it. Just some manufacturing could have been better.
Contacted customer support and they gave us a gift card for the hedgehog since there isn't a replacement.

The most functional, useful mat on the market. It serves as the "regular lay the baby under the arch" play may to begin with...and the arch's design allows you to hang many other toys from it (use plastic toy links or any attachable toy). THERE IS NOTHING BETTER FOR TUMMY TIME! My son HATED tummy time...this was a life saver! Noise activated fox toy is AWESOME!!! Used the camera holder "in reverse" to play videos and get his attention during tummy time and it worked!!! Once he was sitting everything was in front of him to look at and reach for and all held firmly in place. When he started to stand, the arch was secure and strong enough (when laid down in ground position) to help him get up and hold on to as he stood...though I sit on the opposite edge to ensure it wouldn't shift, I really had nothing to fear! He tried another "regular old" play mat we got maybe four times his entire infancy...but this mat was used constantly at all stages until he really started to walk. He'd probably still play on it now at 18m if I hadn't passed it along to his new baby cousin!

Super cute but somewhat lacking
By Rstimp

Very cute gym/activity mat but the phone sleeve is already too small for most phones, especially if you have any kind of case. The sleeve should be more of a stretchy bag/pouch to keep any size phone in it but still keep it secure. Was super disappointed because our owl didn't work from the start. It's a terrible design to not have replaceable batteries in the owl and the hedgehog. Baby/kid toys should always have replaceable batteries otherwise it seems like such a waste! We haven't had any problems with the fox or hedgehog yet and overall it's very cute. It's a little annoying that it can't fold up when not in use as it takes up a bit of space. I love that the arch moves and makes tummy time more enjoyable! That's my favorite part and why I'd still recommend the gym despite some of it's downfalls. The mat washed really well too which is always a plus!

We were so excited to get this as a shower gift, but quickly after beginning to use it (about a month), the hedgehog music failed, and the batteries are not-replaceable. Soon after, the fox died. We replaced the batteries (with several different, brand new ones), and it no longer responds to sound. When you press the power button, it will give one feeble shake if you're lucky.

Best choice
By Katel

What I really liked about this activity gym is the fact that it will have more use than most. The fact that the "gym" will change position as baby gets older, is wonderful. It's bright with fun characters and activities, and feels sturdy. Really happy with this choice for an activity gym!

Attachments don't work
By Momofboys

I bought this for my son because of the rave reviews and was really excited to use it. I put it together and the fox, owl and hedgehog didn't work. These are the main attachments that are supposed to keep your child engaged! I am really disappointed. My husband already threw the box away so now I'm stuck with a toy that doesn't work.

Favorite Play Gym
By SueZQue
from Mesa AZ
on January 19, 2018
The arch that can go overhead, as well as down to the side is the best feature of this play gym. The toys are easily accessible from the side position which is great for tummy time and in the sitting position later down the road as baby is able to do that. That "magic" dancing fox is my baby's favorite, but all of the toys are of excellent quality. I also appreciate the light weight frame around the mat which keeps it from crinkling up and can be moved very easily. If I could only have one play gym this would be the one. 5+ stars

Great Tummy Time Product
By Stacey

Verified Buyer
Finally an activity gym that makes sense for tummy time! I love that this product entertains baby while they play on their tummy. I feel like the traditional activity gyms encourage baby to stay on their back... no wonder they cry when you turn them over because their is nothing to look at. This product solves the problem and encourages them to lift their head. Great product! Wish this was around with baby #1!
Tummy time

This is perfect for tummy time. It's large enough to keep you baby on no matter how wiggly they are. Great toys and a slot to put a phone or iPod for music. I do wish the batteries on a few of the toys were replaceable.
it could be the perfect play mat if it plays song
