Initial Thoughts : Fisher Price Newborn to Toddler Gym & Baby Seat/Swing

The Fisher Price Rainforest Friends take along swing & seat is gorgeous and looks like it will be a lot of fun for baby. 

The seat is secure and relatively easy to put together, I did have to ask Spencer for help while pushing one part into place, but apart from that I managed it all by myself. 

The seat collapses well making it easy to take away with you, Spencer collapses it easily but I can't push the buttons in hard enough. I am hoping that they will loosen up a bit as time goes on.

I am suffering with Carpal Tunnel in my pregnancy so my hands are weaker than usual which could be why I struggle with certain aspects.

The seat can be used as a six speed swing, a baby seat and a vibrating baby seat. It plays music and nature sounds. The swing is battery powered and senses the babies weight so doesn't get weighed down, which means no effort at all for mummy and daddy.

It has a bright and colourful design plus two dangling toys so is sure to grab baby's attention. 

The seat looks comfortable and (the best news for me!) is machine washable. 

The seat is suitable from 0 - 11kg.

The Fisher Price Baby Gym* is suitable from newborn to toddler and is easily converted between the three stages. 

Spencer had to put this together for me purely because my belly was in the way, but believe me, if you don't have a huge belly it is super easy to put together. 

It is bright and colourful, comes with dangling toys and balls for baby to play with, has dancing lights and two music modes (long play and short play).

We currently have ours set up for newborn, the other two options are stage two which involves clipping the mat in a slightly different way so that baby can sit on it and place the balls between the net (currently underneath) and the slides. In stage three you would lose the mat altogether so that your toddler can stand and drop the balls, you can also remove two of the dangling toys and place them onto the base of the animals legs.

The mat is padded and machine washable. 

Keep your eyes peeled for a follow up post on both of these items once baby has arrived and had chance to play with them.
