Beware! Not height rated and doesn't adjust very high
on October 5, 2005
I recently purchased the Leapfrog Learn and Groove Activity Station. I was a bit hesitant to purchase it because I noticed that the product was not height rated as most of the other brands of activity stations are.
I still got it, however, because I really loved the theme, music, and toys. I was very, very disappointed to see that my 8mth old that's in the 50 percentile in height was already on the highest height setting and would likely outgrow the product soon. Since there was no way I was paying $80 for something my son would only use for a very short time, I reluctantly took it back for a refund.
I ended up purchasing the Baby Einstein Activity Station by Graco which is height rated to 32". Based on comparing the Learn and Groove height setting to Baby Einstein's, I'd say that the Learn and Groove is only height rated to about 27"-28".
From a toy and music perspective, the Learn and Groove is heads and tails above the other Activity Stations on the market. In fact, it was my favorite toy that I had gotten my son. However, the height problems with this product far outweigh any positives.
