PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center Review (Oribel)

PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center
What It Is

Keep babies, toddlers, and preschoolers entertained with the PortaPlay Convertible Activity Center. It grows with your child from 5 months all the way to 5 years. For babies from 5 months to 12 months, it's an activity center with a comfy seat in the middle of a circular table. There are lots of fun toys for baby to spin around and explore while in the seat. Push down the lever to pop up the squirrel, and press the mirror for a squeaky sound. Spinning the owl shakes up the rattle beads inside. The flexible flowers, made from FDA-approved food-grade thermoplastics, are great for babies to pull and chew on. Spin the wheel to go through a sequence of different animal images, and flip the mirror to reveal another image. And take the orange and teal clacker rings from their starting point to the tree with ladybug slider that moves up and down. Plus, the seat has a three-inch bounce so that babies can bounce up and down and strengthen their leg muscles.

Once the child reaches 12 months, you can convert the activity center to a play table by removing the seat ring, replacing the seat with the flat table top, and removing the toys and covering their slots with the tray plugs. Now you have a desk at which a child can stand and write, draw, eat, play games, and more.

You can also easily fold up the PortaPlay's legs for portability and storage.

Is It Fun?
This is a fun two-in-one toy that will make a nice addition to your child's nursery. For babies, there are a lot of features that help promote the development of fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and self-awareness. Plus, all of those features are fun for baby to interact with and explore. But parents will like that the PortaPlay easily converts into an activity table for an older child, giving a toddler and preschooler a place to play.
Who It’s For
As an activity center, the PortaPlay is suitable for babies from 5 months to 12 months. As a play table, the PortaPlay can be used with children up to 5 years old.
What To Be Aware Of

It took us 10 minutes to assemble the PortaPlay, and the instructions were easy to follow, but it was a little hard to get the seat to clip in.

The seat pad is removable and machine washable.

Accessories for the PortaPlay are available, such as a child stool and an art paper dispenser, and sold separately.
