Infant gyms, floor gyms, activity gyms, play gyms, playmats...
Are these just various ways of describing the identical

Well, the initial four are all just about interchangeable.

A single manufacturer might prefer one phrase more than another, but there is nothing to actually set a floor health club apart from an activity fitness center.
Play mats, nevertheless, are one thing else. It really is
typically pretty easy to tell a play mat from a play health club.
That stated, there are even some producers who, possibly deliberately, muddy the waters and use play fitness center to
describe what's primarily a play mat. And vice versa.
So what exactly is the difference?

A safe location for baby to play

Let's commence by recognizing that playmats and play gyms each
meet the identical fundamental need. They supply a clean, secure, soft
surface for your child to lie on or play on.

Playmats comes in two primary types. The padded fabric selection and the interlocking foam tiles type.
Numerous are variations on a theme, but some really stand out as unique.
One of those will be the K's Children Huge & Big Cushions
and Playmat, which is a padded fabric mat with detachable sausage-shaped cushions
that create a protective barrier around the edge of the mat.
But overall, the key choice is between a fabric mat and a tiled play area.

Padded fabric mats

The padded playmat comes in a surprising range of designs.
Rectangular, circular, square, oval... even elephant- and giraffe-shaped.
Some are small enough to fold up and put in a bag.
Others are as large as baby's bed covers. Some play
mats are nothing at all more than a patterned piece of cushioned fabric for infant to lie on. Others
have strategically placed pads for support or add-ons for recreation, exploration and

On the whole, fabric mats are most suited to young babies.
But some are designed to adapt as infant grows. The K's
Youngsters Huge & Large Cushions and Playmat does exactly that: the mat neatly converts into a mini sofa or obstacle

Interlocking foam tiles

Foam tile play mats generally come in packs. You can buy as few as nine or you
can cover an entire floor. You can move them from room to room or leave them in spot indefinitely.
And you can add to your collection as baby gets more mobile.

Foam tiles are all quite similar in form but they come with all
kinds of designs - numbers and letters are among
the most popular. Some of the more sophisticated tiled mats have
developmental toys and activities built in. Lights, textures,
sounds, plenty of things to keep tiny hands and minds engaged.

So what's a play gym? The principal difference between a child gym and a playmat is that the gym has dangling toys.
That's an oversimplication, but when you look at a
mat next to a floor gym, you can see that a mat is flat but a gym has crossover arches with a number of hanging toys.

Manufacturers like to think that their gyms stimulate baby's senses and encourage development.
They might be right. But this kind of workout is probably not truly a whole lot various from any other
opportunity infant has to watch, listen and touch.

That stated, they are pretty cool and when my sister offered to buy one for
me and our baby boy, I wasn't going to say no.
