Tasmin reviews the Discover n’ Grow Kick & Play Piano Gym

The Discover n' Grow Kick & Play Piano Gym grows with baby with three modes of play: First is 'lay and play' (where baby can kick at the piano keys at the foot of the mat), second is 'tummy-time' (fold down the arch to let baby see their reflection in the mirror) and lastly; sit and play. The Discover n' Grow Kick & Play Piano Gym, £49.99, is suitable from birth.

Tasmin, from South Yorkshire, to test the gym with her daughter, four-month-old Raphaella. This is what she thought:

There are three parts to the Piano Gym; the arch, play-mat and piano. It was simple to assemble, tying the mat base and slotting the arch into solid points.

It comes with four animal toy attachments to dangle from the arch; either side of a mirror which when baby lays underneath is perfectly placed above her head.

Our favourite is the frog because it has a handle with two discs underneath. It's ideal for little hands to get a good grip and pull down on. All the toys are big, flat and smooth, so are easily grab-able!

The mat is soft and decorated with a range of animals from a lion to a rabbit, with plain black and white edging, a clear boundary, which at four and a half months captured Raphaella's eye when having some tummy time. Although the material is a little shiny so made wriggling a bit frustrating!

The piano at the foot of the mat is the big winner - being able to angle it is a fabulous feature. When horizontal it's raised up like a desk, with a comfortable and safe gap for legs underneath. When vertical the keys can still be played… with little feet!

This is helping Raphaella's development with sitting as she is intrigued to know what and where that sound is coming from…
