Cognitive Development, baby play mat allows babies to learn the basics of cause and effect. The mat stimulates ‘primary circular reactions’, meaning it encourages babies to repeat an action they did by chance (for example, hitting a toy by mistake). As babies grow, they pull on, grab or kick a toy intentionally (secondary circular reactions) and repeat them because they find them fun. Simply put, baby play mat in some sense ‘forces’ babies to interact with dangling toys. Visual Development. Baby play mat supports baby’s visual perceptual skills. This is because babies prefer objects with highly contrasting colours and baby play mat design usually is a contrast of bright colours. Gross Motor Development. Baby play mat stimulates a baby to crawl and use legs, hands and arms, which helps build muscles. More importantly, it encourages laying on stomach which strengthens neck, back, and arms and also supports development of gross motor skills (rolling, crawling, walking), hand skills, visual skills and even speech and feeding skills (stronger neck better supports the jaw essential for talking and eating). Baby play mat is very easy to use, to clean, it is portable (you can easily fold it and take with you on a vacation) and can also be customized (you can always hang extra or different toys). Although designed for babies, play mat is suitable for toddlers as well.
To get the best baby activity gym for your baby, you need to consider the following factors to ensure it serves its purpose well. Durability, the best baby activity gym equipment should ensure ease of use and durability. They should provide maximum comfort for your baby and a great playing experience. You need to select highly durable equipment so that it can serve your baby for a long time and maybe even use it on another baby. Space, many of the baby activity gym equipment usually occupy a small space. This reduces the play area for the growing baby. You should thus choose a product that can be stretched to accommodate the growing baby’s body with time. Play Toys, most of the baby activity gym products have several types of play toys. This is good to keep the baby active and develop motor skills. However, the type of play toys should matter to you since we do not want to place play toys that may scare the baby. Mobility, once in a while, we all want to take the baby to the park or just outdoors to play. It is great when the baby activity gym equipment is mobile so that the baby can enjoy playing anywhere. Color, the color of the baby activity gym equipment matters because the different colors create a contrast to the eyes of the baby. This color contrast is important as it helps develop and strengthen the vision of the baby. It also helps the baby to coordinate hand and eye movements.
