How to keep your baby happy and quiet

Advantagesgives mum time to do the dishes!

Disadvantagesthe songs can grate on you after 18 mnths

"I first saw the sparkling symphony gym at a friends house when al was just 4 weeks old. I lay him under the lights and music and he was there for nearly 40 minutes quiet as a mouse and perfectly content. In summary of the product it comprises an arch with 5 piano like chunky keys that light up, a bar which suspends 3 dangly things (supposedly a sun, moon and star but i'm dubious) and a magic button which makes lovely twinkly noises. Size wise its ..." Read review

Brilliant Invention

AdvantagesLong play life

DisadvantagesIs expensive - but worth it!

"I bought this gym when my son was 8 weeks old - the gym has many different uses: Stage 1: the baby can lie underneath the gym or in a bouncy chair and if he/she moves the star, moon or sun that hang underneath, the baby is rewarded with a piece of classical music or a nursery rhyme and the lights light up in time to the music. Stage 2: The baby can touch the musical keys which will make them light up and play a note - even my four month old baby ..." Read review

Ethan hasnt touched it.

Advantagescolourful, hardwaring

Disadvantagesnot very interesting for babies.

"We brought this for Ethan when he was 6 months mainly because of it being two toys in one. you first use the toy as a baby gym there are small dangling plastic shapes such as stars for the baby to hit, when he does it starts playing music. Then once the baby is a toddler they can use it as a little piano with flashing lights. Although the other opinions of this are very good, so far Ethan who is eleven months hasn't been at all interested in it. ..." Read review

worth the money

Advantagesentertaining, grows with child, several settings

Disadvantagesnone

"I was a bit hesitant to purchase this toy because of its price, but it was definitely worth the money. I have three children between 2 months and 3 years old. All three of them can play with this. The newborn watches the lights on the keys and listens to the music. The 15 month old plays with the keys and still pushes the bar on the bottom which sets off a whole series of songs. The 2 1/2 year old loves to play the keys and make up her own songs and ..." Read review

Music, sparkles, lights and never ending fun!

AdvantagesCan be used throughout the first year and beyond

DisadvantagesIt seems quite loud when babies are newborn

"This is a wonderful toy that can be used from birth and for many months (even years) after. When babies are tiny they can lie under it and watch the stars change colour and listen to the music whilst using it as an activity gym. The downside is that it can seem a little loud to tiny ears. Also my son found initially did not like the flashing lights but in time got used to them and now loves watching the stars light up. It is a toy that gets better ..." Read review

The Ultimate Baby Workout

AdvantagesBuild Quality, Brand Name, Life Span

DisadvantagesNone

"We bought the gym for our 3 month old boy after our neighbour gave us an older version. He just loves it, he will lay under the gym for ½ to 1 hour sometimes, bashing and kicking at the colourful toys & screaming with laughter. It’s interactive too, in mode 1 the music plays after baby has hit one of the hanging toys. In mode 2 the music plays continuously. There are several different tunes, all based on classical music. When ..." Read review
