A 2006 AMBY design award winner, the Discover and Play stimulates and entertains your baby by introducing her to colors, shapes, textures, animals, nature, language and movement. Nine interactive toys also aid development of age-appropriate sensory and motor skills. As she gently rocks and spins herself around in the 360 degree swivel seat, she'll build muscle strength and improve balance while exploring the pleasure of physical movement. This play system also encourages bi-lingual learning by introducing basic vocabulary words in a fun and interactive way. There's even a dragon hand puppet to let you get in on the fun, too.
Encourages Independent Play
Although adult supervision is recommended, the Discover and Play gives your baby the opportunity to independently play and explore in a safe, upright position. Baby will love pressing buttons and listening to music, or exploring different shapes and colors. He can even take a break and enjoy snacks placed on the circular tray--all when and how he wishes. Parents will also appreciate how easy it is to move this portable activity center from room to room, a real bonus when it's time to cook dinner or clean up.
Safe, Durable Construction
Intended for babies four months old and up to 30 pounds and 32 inches tall, the Discover and Play is sturdy, durable and safe. Three height positions make it a snap to adjust the activity center to fit your growing baby, and stationery kick-stands help limit mobility when it's time for more focused play or a quick snack. The Discover and Play is also easy to care for. Simply machine wash the cloth seat pad in cold water on the delicate cycle, and line dry. To clean the plastic or metal parts, just use a mixture of soap or detergent and water.
The Discover and Play has a 27-inch diameter and an overall height of 30 inches. It also weighs 14 pounds, and requires three "AA" batteries (not included).
In 1942, Russell Gray and Robert Cone formed Graco Metal Products, in Philadelphia, PA. For 11 years, the firm fabricated machine and car parts for local manufacturers. In 1953, Gray left the firm, leaving Cone as sole owner. Cone decided to manufacture his own line of products, but had trouble coming up with ideas. Enter David Saint, an engineer, tinkerer, and stained glass artisan who worked for Graco. Saint, himself a father of nine, was intrigued when an associate told him how his wife would soothe their tired and cranky baby while swinging in a backyard glider swing. Acting on this inspiration, he went to the drawing board and 18 months of hard work later, the world's first wind-up infant swing, the Graco Swyngomatic, was born. Graco sold millions of Swyngomatics in the coming years, becoming one of the world's leading manufacturers of juvenile products in the process. Today, Graco is a Newell Rubbermaid company, with 1500 associates worldwide. While a half-century has brought many changes to Graco, their dedication and commitment to designing and manufacturing top-quality products remains, and continues on.
