What reviewers liked

If you think you may have a musical prodigy in the making, take a look at the Fisher-Price Kick & Play Piano. As your infant wriggles, he'll be rewarded for his movement as his feet activate cheerful tunes from the keyboard.
The Fisher-Price Deluxe Kick Piano Gym has 4 ways to play, so it can grow with the baby and there are 4 music settings with 15 minutes of continuous playing. There are short animal songs; a child can learn colors, numbers, and shapes with the help of this baby playmat. The large keyboard in this kick and play piano has 5 removable light-up keys. 5 repositionable toys include self-discovery mirror, crinkle panda, elephant teether, monkey cymbal clackers, and lion rattle. Your child will love to spend time and learn on this baby gym.
What really sets this smaller play gym apart is the piano keyboard that plays notes when your baby kicks or pats the keys—they love learning cause and effect! Five toys attach overhead for when your little one is on their back, or you can attach them to the mat to make tummy time more entertaining. When your baby starts sitting up, you can detach the keyboard so they can still pound away at the piano keys to hear short songs about animals and learn about colors, shapes and numbers.
This mat reaches 4 different levels of development. Sensory due to the bright colors, textures, songs, sounds, and phrases that can be heard when they are playing with this mat. Gross motor skills also because the toy is designed to stimulate your child to reach, kick, and push up!
What we really like about this musical play mat is that the learning content can be changed with baby's age and stage using the Smart Stages technology. At newborn stage, use the Sense stage which plays up to 20 minutes of continuous playful music, lights and sounds to engage and stimulate their senses before switching to Discover at 3 months +, a series of short songs about animals and the sounds they make. When baby reaches 6 months, it is time to Explore with songs and phrases that introduce colours, shapes and numbers. Bonus: the large keyboard with 5 light-up keys can be removed and take along for play - it presses for real piano notes!
“A must have. Great for tummy time and as your baby ages, it increases sensory development as well as creating a response when the baby kicks the keyboard. Colorful and easy to transport when traveling.”
This baby play mat gives your infant four ways to play: Via tummy time, lay and play, sit and play, and take along with you. The content adapts with your baby as she grows up, going from 20 minutes of continuous music, and short songs about animals, to the introduction of colors, shapes, and phrases.
It will play 15 minutes of continuous music while newborns lie and look at the dangling toys attached to the repositionable arch. Tummy time will have them reaching out to hit the keys and hear the notes play as they light up. They might even be able to lie and kick it with their feet, building strength in their legs.
