First things first, the base was difficult to assemble. Two of the pieces that are supposed to slide together took about as much muscle as I have. The other half slid together like they are supposed to. I could have just gotten a couple bad pieces, I don’t know. I actually emailed Fisher Price customer support because I couldn’t get them to go together, but I did finally get it. I took off a star for that. My 3 month old seems to really enjoy the music and hanging toys.
Pros: -Very colorful and engaging toys -Great music -it can grow with your baby. There are three stages for the piano. The first stage plays music on its own and will make additional piano key music when your baby kicks the keys. The second stage will say what animal is pictured on the key that your baby kicks. The third stage is just piano key music. You can also position the piano and mat for sitting up play instead of laying down. The piano can also just be taken off and used as a small piano toy.
Cons: -Mat is pretty tiny. My three month old is pretty tall, but I can’t see this mat fitting his body length past 6 months. This could be someone else’s pro if you have limited space. -Assembly wasn’t easy
Overall a great mat. I bought a more expensive mat that is more visually appealing to an adult’s eye so that it isn’t so “the baby took over the living room” but he doesn’t like it because it’s not fun for him. The toys aren’t bright enough. He really loves this mat and attached toys and I feel that it is a great value! He actually just fell asleep on the mat while I wrote this review!
