*Thank you Tiny Love for sponsoring this post. Regardless all thoughts and opinions are my own and I only recommend products I truly love.
3 kids has resulted in lots of baby products over the last 4.5 years here at the Cervino household. Some of those products are still with us and being loved on by Millie today, while some we tossed while Maddie Grace was still a baby. Millie’s favorite item right now at 7 months is hands down the Tiny Love 4-in-1 Here I Grow Mobile Activity Center because it meets all these criteria. Here’s what is important for you to consider when shopping for a baby activity center:
How it Grows with your Baby. Babies grow quickly and the difference between a 6 month old and an 8 month old is startling. Because it’s really frustrating to spend money on toys that your baby will only use for a couple of months, it’s important to look for toys that adjust to meet the needs of your baby as they grow into different stages.
Durability. Babies put everything in their mouth. They run into things. They have blowout diapers. They drool, a lot. So you want toys that will withstand taking a beating. Also, if you plan on having more babies it’s good to purchase well made products that you’ll be able to hand down to your next kid.
Safety. All babies need toys that meet strict safety standards. No matter how much of a hawk eye you have on your baby no mother wants to use any product that could potentially hurt their child. Look for products that have safety features to ensure your precious baby stays safe and sound.
Ease of Cleaning. There’s a reason people talk about babies being messy. Millie seems to always be surrounded by a train of crumbs and drool. For her toys I really value things that wipe down easily and wash easily!
Storage. One really important thing we’ve learned is to look for baby products and toys that don’t take up a ton of room. Seriously. We have a whole room in the basement already full of baby stuff we don’t need anything else that takes up a lot of room!
The Tiny Love 4-in-1 Here I Grow Mobile Activity Center meets all these criteria and is the perfect baby activity center for a 7 month old and because it grows with our baby Millie will be using it for many months to come! This activity center functions as 4 things to use with your baby: a stationary activity center, push-along, jumper, or walker. We’ve been using it as a jumper with Millie who loves the 6 developmental toys and 28 activities. I love that it encourages baby to develop both gross and fine motor skills, and also encourages exploration! It features safety locks to keep baby from walking in it and running into anything and wipes clean easily, as well as having a removable seat cover that can be thrown in the wash! Everything on this activity center seems very high quality and Millie wants to hang out in this all day. I’m excited to watch her when she figures out how to use it as a walker too. The Mobile Activity Center has a compact fold for easy storage so it’s a breeze to throw in a closet when guests are over!
