The VTech Little Friendlies Glow & Giggle Playmat is a refreshing change from the usual round playmats with crossing arches over them. This playmat is rectangular with a single arch over the middle. On the arch are four removable toys (a caterpillar, a bee, a butterfly with crinkly wings and a mirror), these can be taken off and easily attached to items like your baby’s car seat or buggy so that they can enjoy them when you are out and about.
At the end of the playmat is a piano activity centre comprising of a large tree with light up buttons which give great visual stimulation and a piano with 4 buttons, a spinning ball, animal, colour or shape modes and volume controls. It plays 6 different songs and has 20 melodies for your child to enjoy and introduces them to colours, shapes and animals. The mat itself is comfortable and well padded and is bright and interesting to look at.
This playmat grows with your child as it can be used when your baby is lying on their back where they can grab at the dangling animals and shapes, they can also kick the piano buttons if they are placed close to it. It can then be used for tummy time as the piano can be raised slightly to make it sit at an easy angle for your baby to play with. Once your baby is sitting, the piano can again be moved so your baby can sit and play with it at the correct height. It is perfect for motor skills and will generate hours of fascinating play for your baby.
The Little Friendlies Glow & Giggle Playmat has plenty to stimulate your baby and to keep them entertained. It is well designed and thought out as well as having the high quality that you would expect from Vtech toys.
The playmat is suitable for use from birth onwards and currently retails for £42.99.
