Sunny Day Gymini Playmat | Tiny Love
by Tiny Love
0+ months: STIMULATING SENSESFrom the very first days, the Sunny Day's rich selection of features will offer your baby auditory, visual and tactile stimulation. Simply hang one of the toys at the appropriate distance from baby's face (about 25cm) and let your little one look at it, hear the sound it makes as you move it, etc. With time, your baby will learn to explore the playmat independently.
0-2+ months: BONDING & COMMUNICATIONMove the adjustable arches into the open position and enjoy some quality bonding time with your baby, playing together and connecting while encouraging development. Show baby the various activities, talk about the characters using simple sentences ("Here's Marie the hedgehog!") or simply enjoy some precious eye-to-eye contact with your little one.
2-4+ months: PRACTICING TUMMY TIMEIt's never too early to start practicing tummy time. Use the mat's 16 different activities to encourage baby to stay longer in tummy time as she grows, using the stimulation to distract baby from the effort it takes to stay in this position. For example, place him in front of the mirror on his tummy and let him explore his own reflection.
3-5+ months: PROMOTING FINE MOTOR SKILLSIntroducing babies to different textures helps develop their senses and encourages the development of fine motor skills. The Gymini’s satin ribbons, easy-grasp clackers, jumpy dragonfly and other elements enrich baby’s tactile experience and help practice various types of grasping.
4-6+ months: COGNITION - UNDERSTANDING CAUSE & EFFECTThe Gymini’s musical hedgehog toy offers babies an excellent opportunity to further their understanding of cause and effect. Tapping the toy and attempting to prompt the music feedback supports this cognitive understanding, which gradually helps them realize that they have control and can actually make things happen.
