EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Camping Cubs Activity Gym from Skip Hop is a complete play mat with a whimsical outdoor feel, and sensory activities to keep baby entertained. It features four soft posts printed to appear wood-grained that give it a tent or teepee feel, and a mesh backdrop that sets the ultimate campground scene. There are eights tabs on the posts to attach the four included infant toys or others you may have at home. The toys include a light-up firefly, a turtle mirror, a bear rattle, and a musical raccoon with a wooden teether. The raccoon plays “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. Also included is a plush, sleeping bear pillow for tummy time. The soft, padded mat is comfortable for baby to lie on, and adorable to look at with cute graphics of a forest setting, and furry friends. There's a felt flap with a peek-a-boo skunk, and different textures to stimulate baby. Designed to grow with your child, it's safe and fun for newborns as well as babies old enough to sit up on their own. Little ones can engage in overhead play, tummy time, seated play, or classic playmat activities. It's also BPA, PVC, and Phthalate-free. 

Is It Fun?

The Camping Cubs Activity Gym features a teepee like design, and camping-themed graphics that would be a fun option for parents who are into camping and the outdoors. In addition to being nice looking, it is completely functional with activities for babies starting at birth. It can be used for overhead play, tummy time, seated play, or classic playmat activities. It's a great place for parents to place their little one if they need a break from holding them. The soft mat is comfortable to lie on. Included infant toys, and a soft pillow entertain and comfort baby. Many new parents will appreciate that all the pieces are BPA, PVC, and Phthalate-free. 

Who It’s For

The Camping Cubs Activity Gym is for newborns as well as babies old enough to sit up on their own as it offers different ways to play depending on age and development level. The camping design will appeal to parents who are into camping, and the outdoors. 

What To Be Aware Of

Four infant toys are included to hang on the tabs or play with separately. The toys include a light-up firefly – though we could not get ours to light up - a turtle mirror, a bear rattle, and a musical raccoon with a wooden teether. The raccoon plays “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. A super soft, plush, sleeping bear pillow is also included. 


We found the overhead toys to be positioned slightly off – the higher ones seem to hang a bit too high for babies to grab, while the lower ones hang next to baby versus directly overhead. However, the positioning is fine for babies who are sitting up on their own. 


All the pieces are BPA, PVC, and Phthalate-free.
