Baby gyms are great for stimulating little minds but what you will find when you look at many baby gyms is that they will recommend not to be used for children under the age of 3 years due to choking hazards. This can seem at a conflict with the whole point of having a “baby gym”, because a 3 year old is not a baby. Often, manufacturers put these disclaimers to safeguard themselves and many parents DO buy these activity gyms for their small babies.
Play gyms are a firm favorite with babies and parents alike. For babies, the bright shining lights, loud sounds and moving parts of an activity gym present the baby with a rich collection of noises and sights to see. Things they wouldn’t see in their everyday world so far, which, let’s face it probably only consists of close ups of mommy and daddy and assorted friends and family.
