Skip Hop Alphabet Zoo Activity Gym

Product information

This colourful gym is a fun way to introduce the alphabet. And it can be used in four ways: tactile mat activities will make tummy time fun or turn baby over and they can gaze and reach up at the hanging animals. Once they are a little older, the arches can be removed and the mat will provide a soft playing area. The mat can also be hung on the wall to decorate the nursery.

The gym features two arches with a host of animal creatures that will keep little ones entertained with their bright colours and engaging textures. The hanging toys include: zebra with squeaker, monkey with rattle ball, lion with wooden teether, elephant with rattle and a mirror whale that also plays a tune.

Little ones will also find fun characters and a baby safe mirror on the mat; the elephant has a crinkle ear, the monkey has a squeaker and the zebra has a tactile mane to hold and grab.

Editors Notes

In 2003, new parents Ellen and Michael Diamant were a lot like new parents everywhere: overjoyed with the birth of their son, and overwhelmed with so many choices and so few solutions that satisfied.

When they searched for a diaper bag that looked great and worked well, they found nothing. So they invented one.

Almost a decade and hundreds of products later, Ellen and Michael are still inventing “everything-in-its-place” solutions that are smart, functional and great-looking for busy parents.

Q & As

Looks great, plays great Highly recommend this product. My 3 month old loves all the toys, can't comment on longevity of the whale as have only had it a week. Definitely worth spending a bit more on a mat as the baby will be on it lots plus it is permanently on the floor in our lounge so it looks much nicer than a previous cheap one we had bought. 24 August 2014
Does not wash well Great playmat with cute toys. Unfortunately doesn't wash well and requires debobbling afterwards. Also attracts a lot of fuzz balls and battery in whale toy doesn't last long. Expected more from a play mat of this price. 25 July 2014
Useful handy product! Our son loves this. Lots of activities for him to do and all the toys come off so you can carry them with you wherever you go. 01 April 2014
Such fun My 4 month old son loves this. There are a great range of noises, textures and colours. My only criticism is that the whale which plays a tune is incredibly loud and frequently makes my son jump. There is also no off switch, volume control or anyway to change the battery which will eventually run low. This is a great shame as this wasn't an inexpensive purchase in my view. Except for that he thoroughly enjoys interacting with the suspended creatures and the squeaker in the mat is great for encouraging babies to kick and wriggle. 28 January 2014
Great product but musical whale faulty twice We love this product and our 2 month old loves playing on it but we have already had to return and replace it once and disappointingly we are now going to have to again. When we got it home the first time the musical whale wasn't working and the edge of the mat was frayed. Now the musical whale isn't working in the new mat after just a few weeks of use. This is a shame for the price we have paid and as it's the thing that our baby likes the most about it at the moment. Other than that it is great quality and looks really nice. 25 January 2014
Great product, baby loved it We bought this for our 9 week old daughter, who we'd previously struggled to entertain for more than 10 minutes.The first time we laid her on this she spent nearly an hour transfixed by the toys. She absolutely loves it. The toys are excellent quality, you can put it together and take it apart in seconds, and the colours are lovely (unlike some others which look cheap and garish). The only slight negative is that the mat isn't very padded so if you have wooden floors you probably need to put a rug or blanket under it. But all in all it's a great product and well worth the money. 30 March 2013
Beautiful We weren't keen on other baby gyms with their gaudy bright colours. This is beautiful, the hanging toys are very well made and are lovely as stand alone soft toys. Our baby is eight weeks old and he loves batting at the toys. My husband's an architect and is happy for it to be part of the living room furniture, says a lot for its good looks! 07 January 2013
Excellent Quality Bought for our second baby and very Impressed with the quality of the product. Quite expensive, but worth the investment as will definitely last. 17 December 2012
