Bit bulky and takes time to blow it up

When my daughter was born she was 9lbs 1 1/2 ozs and yes people told me that it was my fault for marrying a 6' 2" rugby player, but hey I could take it. Hana was very strong from a very early stage and I knew from reading my own baby books that mum had kept that I was walking up stairs at the age...

A bit bulky to store away at the end of the day

My baby was recently bought the Galt Playnest, and I am so impressed with it that I wanted to write and share it with other Ciao members! The Playnest is an inflatable ring, measuring 39” (100 cm), with a brightly coloured and textured cover. The cover has a quilted centre for extra padding and...

Good

Interesting textures/graphics that appeal to babie...

Limiting concept/not portable/quite large.

I registered slight surprise when I looked at the 'favorite five toys' here on ciao, and found that the galt playnest popped up at number three. Not mindbending loud yell-emitting surprise, but more of a slight squeak on the surprise richter scale. Reason? Well, I wouldn't personally call this...

A great activity place for babies

They will eventually escape

"What is a baby nest?" I hear you ask ... Imagine an inflatable ring, similar to one you might give a small child in a swimming pool, put it inside a colourful fabric sleeve and put a "floor" in the hole. Voila! - One baby nest. But what do you do with it? Put your baby in it of course. Basically...

Soft, supportive and stimulating play area for you...

Older siblings may also be attracted to it, takes ...

The Galt Playnest was one of the very first baby items we bought when I was expecting my oldest son, almost eight years ago now. We actually picked this up second-hand from a car boot sale for a fiver, after the seller convinced us that this one item we would be glad to have. Later discovering...

“A nest neccessity”

published 03/04/2011

Brilliant

Needs a touch more padding on the base

When my daughter was newborn (she's now seven) I really struggled to make ends meet, and spare cash for toys and activities was rare . I compensated by going to the local flea market and buying many items secondhand. I was overjoyed when I picked up a Galt Baby Nest for £3, considering they...

“Baby's Nest”

published 06/12/2011

colourful, stimulating, safe

expensive

We bought the Galt Playnest when we were expecting our baby as it had been highly recommended to us by a relative who had this for their baby. We bought it from Tesco Direct for £24.99, which at the time I thought was pretty expensive but, having used it extensively, I believe it to be reasonably...

Keeps young baby occupied and safe

olders babies can easily fall out

I invested in this product after seeing other friends babies using them and my daughter being absolutley fascinated by it. Of course we didn't have enough toys and gyms already!! I hadn't actually heard of or seen a GALT BABY NEST until Grace was about 4 months old... Having done a little bit of...

“helping baby to learn to sit”

published 10/06/2001

good for helping baby learn to sit up

not so good for newborns

I first came across this product when Charlotte was learning to sit up on her own. Mooching round Mothercare one day I saw this and thought it would be ideal to sit Charlotte in so she could play. Also it would stop my cushions getting soggy, puked on etc etc. Basically it is a ring which baby...

Portable, washable, interesting, safe.

Expensive, hard to assemble, few months of use

You probably won’t have heard of a Galt baby nest unless you’ve got a baby in the family. I must admit it wasn’t high on my list of shopping priorities before I had my daughter but I now consider it to be one of my top three ‘must-haves’. The Galt baby nest comes in two types. You can buy the...

I know my daughter is safe in it

Big and bulky

Having 2 daughters, I first saw the Galt Baby Nest at my mother and baby group when i had my first daughter. Back then I though it was a good idea. So when I has my next daughter 6 months ago, I decided I would buy one. I'd seen them for sale in Tesco, Argos and on the internet, so decided i'd go...

“Babies love it”

published 26/05/2004

So many bright colours and textures

Too big to be portable

I couldn't have managed without this item when my little girl Laura was born just over a year ago. I used it until she was about eight months old but not the activity part as she was sitting up and rolling over quite early and I found the tubes and toys just got in the way of her independence. I...

I first found out about playnests whilst browsing on eBay. I was quickly hooked. I spent so long every day finding out about retailers and various prices, as well as trying to get a cheap one from eBay, that my husband claims to have been driving to the point of insanity by me [again].He agreed...

Gym isn't the best, relatively expensive

We had been told that the Galt Babynest is the best product for babies who are just learning to sit up, and we decided to buy the version that also comes with an integral baby gym. The babynest itself is a brightly coloured cloth cover surrounding an inflatable inner tube. You can use it for a...
