My 4 month old son liked staring at this for a while, but it never captivated him for long. At this point, I’m likely to pass it along to another parent, since he no longer wants to look at it.
The only thing my newborn looked at
Now that my baby is 2 months she doesn’t seem as interested. But for along time she loved staring at this mat. Now she likes to look at my face instead.
Keeps my kiddo’s attention…
We’ve used this in the crib and in the car and it seems to keep my little one engaged. I definitely like the simple high contrast images and that it changes from black and white to a full color spectrum.
It’s not really a play mat, but it’s nice…
This reversible "wall hanging" will tie from the side of the crib. It also has a magnet sewn inside that will allow it to be wrapped around the rail of a crib or the handle of a car seat, but quickly removed. My son absolutely loves it, and has loved it since I first put it one his crib. (I keep it tied higher up, so it doesn’t pose a suffocation risk). He loves to lie in bed and stare at it, and is upset whenever it is missing. I have another high-contrast panel on the longer rail of his crib, but it doesn’t seem to interest him as much as these images do, so I think they’re well done. They are still visible in the low light of a night light. This panel isn’t magic, by any means… I don’t think it will keep a upset kid from being upset… but it does give my son something to focus on when he’s winding down in his crib. I love it!
Great for the car!
We tied it to the headrest, my son seems to love looking at it when he is in his car seat. It is the perfect size.
Interesting concept, but 3 month old prefers the book.
I’m on the fence about this. My 3 month old loves the Wimmer-Ferguson see and say book, so I purchased this to place in the car so he has something to look at that’s familiar on car journeys. He’s definitely not as engaged or interested in this as the book. Not sure why. I recently flipped it over to the colored side and this holds his attention for a little while. In terms of the design I would have preferred if they put a Velcro fastener instead of just the ribbon. This forces you to tie this together which isn’t always practical as there’s not always enough ribbon to create a secure knot. I do like the magnetic closure. I’ve folded this to allow my son to focus on just a few images when he was younger. Again he’s not that interested in this. Overall I think it’s ok. Maybe when he’s a little older he’ll appreciate the different sounds,and textures but right now…not so much.
I have this tied to the inside of the baby’s crib. Not only does he love looking at the shapes, he enjoys reaching out to crinkle the crinkle panel and take the teething ring. We can hear him on the baby monitor sometimes crinkling it when he has first woken up or is going down for a nap and hasn’t yet fallen asleep. It’s nice that it is double-sided so we can turn it around to get some fresh views. We haven’t used it much for tummy time in the triangle configuration, mostly because I haven’t wanted to take it off of the crib since he likes it so much there! Nice quality toy.
Slightly misleading name
This is by no means a mat, but my eight week old baby loves it! It is interactive and very well made. I can see my baby enjoying this noisy, stimulating fabric panel for many months to come.
