Stargaze Playmat & Gym Review (Mamas & Papas)

What It Is

The Stargaze Playmat & Gym is one tricked out playmat and gym for babies. This interactive highly technology playmat has everything babies could possibly need to stimulate his or her senses. The Stargaze uses the innovative new MAGIC technology designed to engage and stimulate babies through the use of lights, sound, and touch. There is an interactive touchpad that, when kicked by little feet, makes a sound and lights up the ceiling of the playmat. The ceiling of the playmat has built-in light pods so the whole ceiling lights up with a gentle glow.

The Stargaze comes with the Musical Fun MAGIC card pack that has four settings, each with a different rhythm and feel of music. It can be used with other Mamas & Papas MAGIC toys. When baby pulls on the MAGIC pull toys, a different sound and light pattern emerges.

There is also a hidden squeaker, a removable mirror that dangles from up top, a tummy time cushion, and additional loops to add more toys. This playmat is MP3 compatible so parents can crank up their baby's favorite tunes. The soft, padded playmat is also full of interactive tangile parts, such as a fluffy circle, ribbon tags, detachable teethers, crinkly fabric sections, and a hidden peek-a-boo mirror.

The Stargaze also grows with babies, first as a playmat and activity gym for birth–6 months. Add the tummy time cushion to help babies 6 months–9 months explore. And once babies can sit up on their own, you can remove the gym arches to create a playmat.

Is It Fun?

We really like this playmat. Mamas & Papas really thought about everything when they created this. From the soft fabric to the lights on the ceiling and the MP3 capability, the technology behind this playmat and gym is magic indeed.

Who It’s For

The Stargaze Playmat & Gym is for babies birth–9 months. As a playmat only, it can be used by babies a little older than 9 months.
