As you guys all know, from time to time, brands contact me about reviewing new products they think my family will love and would like to share with my readers. Recently we were contacted by one of our favourite brands, Fisher-Price, to see if Mabel and I would like to review the new Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Sit-to-Stand Activity Centre. I shouldn’t need to say this but all the opinions I express in these types of reviews are honest and my own.
Over the years of raising four kids I thought I’d seen just about every activity centre you could imagine but after unboxing the Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Sit-to-Stand Activity Centre I was really impressed. The colour scheme and the design are a lot more sleek than your typical baby toys with the seat covered in a cool geometric print and I like the safari theming.
The activity centre clicked together really easily with just a few screws to keep it secure. You’ll also need batteries as there are some parts which light up and make sounds to reward baby’s actions as they play.
I love that the Fisher-Price Activity Centre grows with Mabel through two different play modes; from around four months she was able to sit in the centre of the activity centre and look at the toys, lights and sounds. Now she’s around eight months she can actively swivel in the 360 degree seat and choose what she’d like to play with which keeps her entertained for even longer. The seat is adjustable too; as Mabel gets taller I can reposition the clip on the underside of the seat to keep her elevated and stop her legs from getting squashed.
When Mabel begins to stand and cruise we can remove the central seat and replace it with another activity to keep her little hands busy.
We tend to use the activity centre most when I need both hands to do another task such as make lunch or write a product review! Mabel loves being independent within the activity centre and being free to move from one activity to another. As she’s currently teething so she’ll often pull some of the toys into her mouth to give them a good chew and it’s clear that the product has been designed with this in mind. There are lots of textures for Mabel to explore and she seems to love looking at herself in the mirror.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this product to a friend and feel that the £99.99 price tag is a fair price for the longevity and design of the product. The product is easy to clean, light and can be moved from room to room. Mabel’s certainly enjoyed playing in the Fisher-Price Activity Centre and I’m sure it won’t be long before we’re converting it for even more fun as she approaches nine months old.
