*Note: After publishing the review Boppy noticed that I assembled the arch upside down! The stars on the arch should be facing down toward the baby and the stripes facing up. This also makes the arch much more sturdy! My mommy brain moment 🙂
I can hardly believe I am typing this but Carson, my sweet little baby, is 3 months old now and starting to get interested in his toys! I really can’t believe how fast time flies by! As sad as I am (and I am sad!) to see him getting bigger, it’s also really fun to see him changing and starting to notice the world around him.
I couldn’t wait to get him some fun new toys to catch his interest. I found this absolutely adorable Flying Circus play gym from Boppy.
I LOVE the mini Boppy pillow that is included with the gym. It is perfect for tummy time. Carson actually enjoyed being on his tummy and looking at all the fun colors and toys.
The pillow works great for both their tummy time and for laying on their back. It helps prop them up nicely and when he is propped up he can bat at the toys really well too. One really neat feature of the flying circus gym is the patent pending SlideLine™ system. It creates a customized environment for baby by allowing toys to be perfectly placed (and moved). You can see these in the photo-they are the orange circles on the arch. You can slide them to wherever you prefer and attach a toy to them.
The Flying Circus gym comes loaded with 10 adorable circus animal toys that are specifically designed to engage baby throughout his phases of development. The toys are adorable and really colorful.
I love that the toys can attach to the gym by their limbs too. The gym has little holes on the arch and you can pop the toys puffy “hands” and “feet” through the holes to hold them there. Since you can position the toys wherever you want you can ensure that baby can always reach them.
The unique open arches include twinkling lights and music to captivate your little ringmaster. Since it is an open design it is much easier to get baby in and out versus the traditional gym with four legs. Features:
- Patent pending SlideLine system ensures toys are always in the perfect position
- Ten circus-themed developmental toys included
- Unique open arch design for easier access to baby
- Arches include twinkling lights and music to delight baby
- Oversized 35” x 36” pad
- Mini Boppy Pillow included
Why we love it: The Boppy Flying Circus Gym comes loaded with accessories. From the fun toys to the mini Boppy pillow, you won’t need anything extra with it. The lights and sounds are fun and the open arch makes getting baby in and out a piece of cake. Carson LOVES his gym!
Suggestions for improvement: The lights and sounds are activated by motion. When the baby kicks or pulls at a toy it should activate the lights and sounds. I find it to often take quite a bit to activate it and Carson certainly isn’t strong enough to do it yet. I’d love an option to just have the music and lights play without motion.
Buy It! You can buy the Boppy Flying Circus Gym at Babies R Us! This would make an excellent baby gift idea for baby showers, new baby or for Christmas!
