From the very first days, the Kick & Play’s responsive pad or kicker will offer your baby auditory, visual and tactile stimulation. Place the kicker on your baby’s responsive pad and let your little one kick it while lying on his or her backside. With time, your baby will learn to understand how the kicker responds to touch with lights and music.
Move the adjustable arches into a comfortable position and enjoy quality time with your baby, playing together and connecting while encouraging development. Showcase the kicker or share other toys, talk about the Tiny Pioneers characters using simple sentences (“Here’s Marie the Hedgehog!”) or simply enjoy some precious eye-to-eye contact with your little one.
It’s never too early to start practicing tummy time. Use the play mat’s eighteen different activities to encourage tummy time as he or she grows. Use play to distract your baby from the effort it takes to stay in this position. For example, place them in front of the responsive pad on their tummy, and let them explore its electronic responses.
Introducing baby’s hands and feet to different textures helps to develop fine motor skills. The Gymini®’s kicker, animal toys, teethers, and other play elements enrich your baby’s tactile experience.
The Gymini®’s responsive pad offers babies an excellent opportunity to further their understanding of cause and effect. Tapping the pad and attempting to prompt lighting or musical feedback supports this cognitive understanding. This gradually helps babies to realize that they have control and can actually make things happen.
