Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Gym

Budget play mat

Pros
  • Converts to a crawl-through tunnel
  • Detachable toys
  • Price
Cons
  • Narrow mat
  • Arches don't stay attached well
  • Toys aren't engaging

The Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl Gym is both affordable and versatile. It converts to a crawl-through tunnel after baby is on the move, and the toys can be attached to the overhead arches for back play or to the mat itself for tummy time. Reviewers like the affordable price of this play mat and appreciate that it can be used longer than other tummy mats by converting to a toy appropriate for an older baby. In play-mat form, this product is basic with three toys that hang from overhead arches. Most reviewers like the toys, but some complain that they aren't interesting enough. The soft, machine-washable mat is 21 inches by 19 inches, which some parents say isn't wide enough to allow a baby to roll over. If you're looking for a basic baby play mat that offers some versatility, you'll be happy with the Ocean Wonders Kick & Crawl, but if you'd prefer a more engaging and entertaining play mat, the Gymini Super Deluxe Lights and Music (*Est. $60) is larger and has flashing lights, music and 12 different toys and activities.
