Keeping a baby entertained is not always an easy task, especially when traveling and away from home. That's why I'm always on the lookout for baby gear made with both parent and baby in mind....something that's easy to take on the go as well as engaging for my kids. Thankfully, Infantino has come to the rescue! As part of the Infantino Test Drive Program through Mom Central, we were sent the Twist & Fold Activity Gym and Jumbo Wheel Play Space.

Twist & Fold Activity Gym Features/Benefits:

  • Large Padded Play Space
  • 4 linkable play pals
  • Plays musical melodies
  • Soft bolster for tummy-time
  • Peek-a-boo mirror
  • Easy to close
When the Twist & Fold Activity Gym arrived I was really excited to see Kaden's reaction.

Opening it couldn't have been easier. By simply laying it out and pushing downward on the top it was ready to use. I was really immediately impressed with the quality. It's more padded and soft than other play mats we have tried...perfect for a baby who is on his/her back or tummy! The colors are also fantastic.

Kaden absolutely adores the plush play pals. Hey enjoys grabbing for them and trying to chew on them.
The peek-a-boo mirror and soft bolster are also great features, as they make tummy time much more enjoyable for little ones.

When it came time to fold it up, I was very pleased with how easy it was. By simply twisting the top, pulling up and securing the velcro strap around the folded mat...it was ready to be put away or taken with us.

The fact that it is so compact and can be folded into such a small bundle is probably my favorite feature! It makes storing it when not in use a breeze. We've also found that it's super easy to throw in the car and take with us wherever we're going.

Overall we're very happy with the Twist & Fold Activity Gym. It's designed to help encourage reaching skills and engage the senses, while also keeping a parent's need for easy storage and travel in mind. Kaden and I both give it two thumbs up!

As Kaden gets older, he is on his back less and sitting up and trying to crawl more. That's why I was very excited when we received the Infantino Jumbo Wheel Play Space!


Features/Benefits:
  • Musical Flower
  • High contrast patterns for cognitive development
  • Mirror
  • Teethers
  • Sounds and Textures
  • Large Play Space
As I laid the Jumbo Wheel Play Space out on the floor I was very impressed with the size. It's perfect for a babies at all different developmental stages. Whether laying on their tummy, or trying to scoot, crawl and roll...this large play mat offers plenty of space and features!


The quality and colors of the Jumbo Wheel Play Space are great. There are also many things for little ones to do. Between the teethers, bright colors, different textures, music and sounds there's plenty of play features that offer loads of fun for babies of all ages. Even Kaelyn enjoys it. She and Kaden both really like the musical flower and mirror!

I love that the Jumbo Wheel Play Space is made to grow with your baby. Whether a newborn who is laying on his/her back, or an older baby who is crawling around, this thing has a little something for everyone!

We love the Infantino Jumbo Wheel Play Space and can't believe we didn't have something like this for Kaelyn when she was little. It's so great for a baby at Kaden's age, as it encourages him to reach, roll, and crawl!

As with other Infantino products we've used in the past, these two products did not disappoint. They definitely had both baby and parent in mind when creating such fun and easy to use/store play mats. I would highly recommend them to other parents of young children.

    Okay, Kaden is just WAY TOO CUTE. I love the shots of him checking himself out in the mirrors... and the one laughing is frame-worthy!

    I'm sad we didn't have these when both of my kids were babies as well, they're so great to have for little ones!
