Infants and early toddlers are eager to explore their world, but there’s only so much they can do while learning to operate their hands, arms, feet, and legs. Baby activity centers are a fantastic way to encourage their development while eliciting those ever-so-adorable giggles. And, hey, if they keep your kiddos engaged even for a few minutes, you may even be able to use that time to, oh, sit still for half a second! Sounds like a win-win, don’t you think?
Recommended for babies 4 months and older, Skip Hop delivers a fun experience for curious cuties with this activity center that converts from a bouncer to activity table. With a seat that rotates 360 degrees, little guys and gals are in the center of all the action with a variety of toys and developmental activities to choose from.
Bright Starts quite literally puts a different spin on the baby activity center with this pint-sized plaything that has kids cruising around outside in a seated baby walker. The seat can be removed once baby is too big for it, allowing for them to then stand on their own and play when they’re ready. There are loads of colorful play objects to capture their attention. Budding musicians will love the piano station and all of its silly sounds.
Your boss baby will have a great day at “work” via this activity center that features a laptop, phone, and globe, among other developmental activities. If only putting in a day at the office for grownups could be this much fun. Our favorite feature? The 10 songs and greetings emitted from the light-up globe, which kiddos can spin to their heart’s content.
