Comfortable, Colorful Design
Tummy-time play with five linkable toys that can be reposition for your baby. View larger.
This bright and cheery activity center features a quilt with a silky border and colorful arches supported by an adorable giraffe. A variety of links let you attach toys up above or down below to capture baby's attention. A cushy monkey, jingly toucan, cute elephant, and parrot with spinning paddle invite baby to bat them around, an action that helps develop gross motor skills. You can also place baby on her stomach for some back-strengthening "tummy time." For added excitement, there's a spinner with rattling beads, spinning butterflies, a shiny mirror, and a crinkly leaf.
Three Modes of Play
To suit baby's mood, this gym offers three modes of play. In the first mode, baby's movements set off eight to 12 seconds of lights and music, which helps teach your child about the relationship between cause and effect. Another option is the music mode, which develops baby's auditory sense with 20 minutes of continuous music. Finally, the rainforest mode plays 20 continuous minutes of rainforest sounds while baby plays or simply relaxes--don't be surprised if he's soothed right off to dreamland!
This activity center measures 20 x 32.5 x 32.5 inches (WxHxD) and weighs 4.7 pounds.

This is a great gym! My son played with this from birth to 1 year old. My second son loves it as well(3 months old). They would at times even spend up to an hour playing in the gym. They love the lights, music and the animals. I would highly recommend this!...more info
Really like this play gym. My 6 month old likes the mirror and the hanging butterflies. Its very easy to put together....more info
- Great for Baby
My baby loves this play gym. He has been using it since he was about 6 weeks. I love all the different ways it can entertain him. He has stayed busy with it for an hour at the age of 3 months. The only downfall is that it does not fold down for easy storage....more info
- Cat loves it!
Overall, I think the playmat is just a playmat. My biggest complaint is the quality of the toys hanging. The day I took it out of the wrapping, the mirror fell out of the plastic holder. It's bright and has flashing lights, and just like Vegas, full of cheap material! The kid hangs out on it for a little while before getting bored, but the cat loves it, and for that, it's priceless....more info
- Little Disappointed
I was a little disappointed with the baby activated feature of this product. The thing just doesn't work!!!!
Otherwise my daughter loves the music and toys!! ...more info
- Perfect Entertainer
My son loves this gym, the best part of this gym is that the sound and lights happen according tot he baby's movements. Not sure if my 3 month old realizes that there is music happening as he moves, but he absolutely loves hte lights and the bright colored animals. He has now started grabbing stuff, so the elephant rattle really amuses him. We also use it as a tummy time playmat....more info
- this one is a definite keeper!
We bought this at full retail price when our daughter was 7 wks. She took to it immediately. But here is the real proof this was worth the$ - she STILL loves it and she's now 8 months old! We've used it daily since we bought it, just purchased some additional toys to help switch things up. The only downside was that the parrot spinner started to get rusty after months of her drooling on it. Even considering that, I would rebuy this gym in a heartbeat. The quilt has so much to look at and grab. The self-activated music is a great developmental (cause/effect) tool. Wonderful wonderful gym....more info
- No APO Shipment
I purchased this as a gift for a friend. I had to utilize a special shipping service to get it over here to Germany. It was so expensive that I will no longer purchase any product that refuses to ship via APO. I am very disappointed that so many venders will not support those who serve in the military. ...more info
- Fantastic but eats the batteries!
I absolutely love this Gym. We bought it for our 3 month old girl after realizing that she absolutely loves the characters in her rainforest mobile. This gym is no exception, she adores it! I do wish it had an on and off switch, specially when you have it on the motion setting. Overall, this is great as well as the rest of the items in the collection. ...more info
- Hours of entertainment!
My son loves this gym, he's now 4 months old and has been amazed by it ever since we brought it home. He will smile and giggle and loves playing in the gym, either alone or with us helping him play with all the cool stuff. Careful, you'll find yourself singing along to the music in no time.
Best thing we've bought so far......more info
- One of the best purchases for baby
My husband I bought this item when our baby was two months old, and now he is over 6 months old and still loves it. It is great for tummy time, reaching and grabbing, rolling, and even sitting up. At each milestone so far he has discovered a new use for this Gym. It can entertain him for 30 min or more, which is very hard to do for our baby....more info
- Great Product!
We love this play mat. The bright colors and toys are great. I like that you have the option to move the toys to different locations. The music and sounds are soothing, not annoying. My 7 week old has started to really enjoy it and even my 23 month old loves to play with it. ...more info
- Love this gym!
I got this for my twins, they are 1 and they still love it. A lot of people have seen it and commented on how nice it is. I love that it can play music when they move and touch things. My twins found constant light and sound too much but they like the cause and effect of this toy and toys like it. I highly recommend this gym....more info
- Stellar Product!
I bought this for my 3 month old when she started trying to roll over, as we had purchased a different mat that wasn't very wide. She absolutely loves it. We can play with her on it, or let her entertain herself. It runs for 18 minutes, but she will play on it for more than one run through. We haven't gotten to use the child activated feature yet, but it seems like you have to hit it a little hard to get that part to work. We use it for tummy time and just letting her play on her back. I was worried that batteries would run out quick, but we have used it multiple times a day for over a month and haven't had to replace them yet!
Update, she is now over 6 months, still uses it daily, and we still haven't had to replace the batteries. She has learned to roll over both ways on the mat, and still loves it, she is nowhere close to getting tired of it!...more info
- There are better playmats out there.
I have twins, and bought two playmats - this one and the Tiny Love. I have to say the Tiny Love wins hands-down, though this one does have some nice features. I would give it 5 stars if it only had more toys on it to hold baby's attention, but it is very sparsely populated in the toy department.
has nice music and a couple of flashing lights
has a detachable monkey which the babies LOVE - they try to eat him every chance they get
babies also like the elephant rattle and spinning wheel toy
babies like looking at the playmat animals during tummy time - very cute design!
There definitely aren't enough toys on this! If they don't want to include more toys, at least include enough toy holders so you can add your own.
The toys that are included aren't all that interesting, with the exception of the three I mentioned.
The mirror on the giraffe points in the wrong direction - not toward the center of the mat as in the ad, but parallel with the edge, a position in which the baby would never be. I have to hold the mirror for baby to see herself during tummy time. No way to get it to point in the right direction.
To my horror, I turned around to see baby holding the mirror that had fallen out of the red frame and was about to chomp down - it's a thin, very sharp disc. Baby would easily have cut herself. It's constantly falling out - I've had to restick that $@#! thing a dozen times and watch the babies like a hawk. I've tried to glue it in, but need stronger glue I suppose.
The butterflies at the top should spin - seems like they are supposed to spin, since they are on a mobile that rotates - but they do nothing, and are too high up for babies to reach. Are we supposed to spin it for the babies? It's in an awkward position for this. Maybe mine is broken.
Overall I'd say this is cute, but kind of worthless overall and expensive. There are much better playmats out there. I have the rainforest bouncy seat which the girls absolutely love, which is why I bought this playmat, but now wish I hadn't.
- Love it :)
This is a great buy! It keeps my 4 month old boy entertained for hours everyday. I can just put him in there and forget about him for at least 20 minutes till the music stops then he starts whining so I turn the music back on and he's happy again. He loves it! In fact, I love it so much that I sometimes pretend I'm a little baby and play in it too :)
Our pediatrician suggested that I put my son on his tummy for 10 to 15 minutes a day for play time, but my son would cry the second I put him face down, until I bought this gym. I put him on his tummy in front of the mirror hanging from the giraffe and it worked like a charm, for the first time ever my son was on his tummy and smiling :)
I highly recommend this product. The toys are really nice. The music and the nature sounds are also great, although the low volume is still a bit high, but it doesn't bother me at all. I love that you can change the position of the toys or you can hang any of your other toys to the loops on the arcs, just be careful what you're hanging (make sure it's safe and doesn't have any strings or anything that can wrap around your baby's neck or any small parts that can come loose and become a chocking hazard).
In response to some of the negative points mentioned by other reviewers:
- The gym comes with a sealable plastic bag. It can be easily disassembled and stored in that bag. It may be slightly big but it's flat so it won't take up much space in your closet.
- It may not be very sturdy but it is certainly sturdy enough that it won't fall apart while your baby is playing with it (as long as it's assembled properly).
- The mat is not very well padded but I believe that it's safer this way for tummy time, and it shouldn't be a problem if you place it on a rug or a carpet.
Hope you and your baby enjoy this as much as we did!!
(Sorry for the long review)
- My baby loves it!
I received this gym at my baby shower, so my baby (who is 7 months old now) has been playing with it for awhile now. He really likes it and it has been something he has played with in a lot of different ways as he has developed. He started out laying on his back and just watching the lights. It was also good for tummy time (which he tended to hate in general) because it gave him something to look at as he laid on his stomach. Now, he sits up and plays with the toys that hang from the gym. He also uses the bars to support himself as he practices standing up (with me sitting right behind him in case he decides to let go). The one negative about it is that the music is really fast, it's the typical cute baby songs (Animal Fair, Pop Goes the Weasel, etc.) but at warp speed, which is a little weird. Other than that, I love it and so does my baby!...more info
- So glad we got this!
Our baby has been loving this play mat since day 1. We recently had a relative's baby visiting and he was equally as pleased to play in the jungle. Assembly was kind of tricky but that is the only drawback. Also, the fact that it folds up for storage/travel is wonderful. We don't go on trips without it. ...more info
- Keeps my baby entertained for a long time!
My baby loves this gym, he's almost 3 months old and stays happily in it for about 30 minutes. He loves the lights and music, and recently has begun to play with the toys that are hanging from it as well. He talks to the toys and makes sounds and kicks, obviously enjoying himself. I really recommend this product to other parents. ...more info
- I wish the butterflies turned around!
I like it, but I thought that the butterflies move around. That is the main reason that I bought it. I know my daughter would like it and it would keep her interested in it even more if it did. I had borrowed my nephews panda playmat which she loves cuz there is a mobile that moves around on the top which keeps her interested in it much longer and she even laughs. I wish they still made that. This is the best one that I found being sold on the market right now. I would give it a 5 star if it moved!...more info
- Very nice, but overwhelming.
This gym is very high quality and attractive. The music and sounds offer a lot of variety and are not annoying at all. The toys are varied, cute and friendly-looking, and well-designed. I was in love with it, but my son was not! I think it was too much for him. Whenever I put him under it, he was fascinated for about 90 seconds, and then he'd shut his eyes and start to cry and not stop until I took him out. He is not really ever like that otherwise. I have noticed that he is very tuned in to the visual world, and this gym offers an overwhelming amount of visual input. Kids are so trained by tv and computers to need a lot of things going on in front of them to avoid being bored, and this gym seems like the infant version of a video game-- not a bad thing, but it's good to be aware when making that choice for them. I gave this gym away and got a hand-me-down Gymini from a neighbor-- it just has holes for links, and we attach one or two toys at a time, and my son is much happier....more info
- i love the rainforest serie....
This is a great product....I have just bought it as a gift and I am sure that the whole family loves it...more info
- Fisher-Price Rainforest Melodies & Lights Deluxe Gym
THE RAINFOREST MATT IS SO CUTE. IT IS ADORABLE. IT HAS SEVERAL LIGHT AND OR MUSIC COMBINATIONS TO CHOOSE FROM. IT ALSO HAS A RAINFOREST SOUND, THAT YOU HEAR WATER TRICKELING DOWN A STREAM, FAINT FOREST SOUNDS, ECT.
IT IS GREAT, JUST WISH THE MATT WAS A LITTLE BIGGER....more info
- Fisher Price Rainforest Molodies & light Deluxe Gym
I was very happy to have gotten it as quickly as I did. I was disappointed tho in the size of the product. It was not as big as I thought it was going to be but it is a wonderful item and my Grandson really loves it. The sounds are great!! He loves the soft lights and I myself love the out-door sounds..very soft sound,peaceful and relaxing.. I wish it had been some what larger but all in all I do really like this product and would give it high ratings......more info
- Very convenient and durable. We love it. Its adorable.
I got this activity mat when my son was 8 weeks old. He loves it. The music isn't too loud nor the lights too bright. The animals/design of the mat is adorable too. He loves that monkey!! My son just turned 4 mos and he now grabs the toys to hear them rattle and he pushes off the big giraffe with his feet to reach things. The mirror is a big hit too. I recently discovered that Fisher Price has a great website that you can order replacement parts for cheap! The entire bag of toys that comes on this activity mat are $9 to replace. I love it! Overall, I definitely recommend this product. It is a little pricey and I had a hard time breaking down the top part to take with us on vacation but I think the good far outweighs the bad. The mat is extremely durable too....more info
- Monkey in the Rainforest
Our grandchild loves the Rainforest. It keeps him happy for a long time. I really love the little Monkey with the curly tail that will hang anywhere you want it to....more info
- Baby's first taste of the outdoors.
My new granddaughter lives in Alaska and the weather is not always the best. So I brought the Rainforest Gym for her and she loves it. My son told me that she plays with it all the time and has even fallen alsleep under the stars (lights) It's has wonderful colors and lots of things to keep a small baby reaching for, and grabbing on to....more info
- I love it....
This is very good product for babies. when you want them to put down and do some work or let them do some workout. ...more info
- Use it for my baby gear rental company, love it!
This is a popular demanded item [...] Love the butterflies and giraffe, super cute!
I was surprised to see my 4 month old son actually grab the toys that were hanging off the gym. He enjoys kicking and grabbing the toys and hear the music play every time he grabs them. this gym is perfect....more info
- Best $ you'll spend on your baby
This is the best money you'll spend on your baby. Our baby is high maintenance as they come, and this is the one thing he likes. Well worth the money. We've tried nearly everything. Get this one. ...more info
- shower gift
this is a great item for a gift stimulating for a baby and really great quality. the picture does not do it justice it is even nicer. the amazon price is awesome compared to other sources....more info
- WORTH THE $$
Okay, my husband and I both really love this for our son. He's just about 2 months old, and enjoys this in the daytime. He only has so long that he'll lay in it and listen to the songs and deal with the stimulation of color and different stuff going on, but we really think that as he gets older, he'll be using it more and more. We also use it for good tummy time. Have not washed it yet, but puting it together was Very easy. I do wish that the music lasted longer. LOVE the leaf on the floor. The giraffe cover is really smart. The toys, LOVE THEM. The colors on top that flash, LOVE THEM. I really do recommend this to any parent for lots of baby stimulation; learning....more info
- Best baby gift EVER!!
I got this as a gift at one of my baby showers. I started using it when my baby was about 3 weeks old. He was not that interested in it but around 6 weeks when I put him on it he immediately went nuts over it. He is 14 weeks now and loves it!!! Sometimes he cries until we put him down to play on it and can be on it for up to an hour. I also use it in the bathroom while I am showering to keep him occupied. This has been the best gift we received and I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone looking for an activity center for their child. I will be giving this as a gift to anyone that has a baby in the future!...more info
- A must for each home!
I bought this for my grandson and he love's it! He talks to all the animals and love to grab them. This gym is very well made and worth every penny!...more info
- Lots of fun
My first new grandson is totally capitvated by the lights and changing sounds. Even though he is not quite 2 months old it does hold his interest. I can't wait to see how he reacts in the coming months....more info
- i love it!
this gym it's really good, my baby loves it since she was 3 months old she plays with it and now that she is almost 6 month still like to play on it.
the lights and the sound are very good and she pays attention to them some time, it stimulate to her and sometimes when she is crying or kind of boring i put her there and she just start playing with all the things that the gym brings.
i do recomend it for all moms that wants their baby to play and stimulate with something, this is the perfect toy!...more info
- Don't buy until 3 months
I bought this gym after reading more reviews then I can normally stand to read. My son was 21/2 months at the time. I was so excited when it came. I put it together with ease and placed my son in it and he screamed. He now is 41/2 months old and he loves it. His favorite is the monkey. He wants to see it everywhere. I attach it to his car seat and his eyes light up. I don't think that it should have a rating of 0+. It should start at 3+. ...more info
- Great for baby's entertainment and motor skills
When I 1st got this for my daughter, she was only 1.5months old and the blinking lights were enough to keep her entranced. As she got older, she started reaching for the toys more and now, she's fascinated enough by the toys that she flips from her back onto her belly and back onto her back to better play with the toys. She didn't and still doesn't bother to flip around unless she's on this playmat - it's just so much fun!...more info
- mat is smaller than it appears
I was hoping this mat would be bigger than the other rainforest mat I recieved as a babyshower gift but this mat is not much bigger. My daughter loves it though. It keeps her occupied for a while and she loves al the different animals attached to it. But...I would love a little more room for her to roll around in other than that it's a good mat. It's a little pricey though for being so small!...more info
- grandson loves it!
bought this for my 3 month old grandson for christmas he loves it he likes the brightly colored animals his head turn back and forth as he looks at each one. the music is cute too. easy to set up and take down....more info
- Fantastic Item!!!!!
My child loves this item. The lights and the animals make her smile and wiggle. There is so much for her to touch and play with. Also washes very easily for those little spit-up problems. This item replaces another baby gym by Infantino that bored my child after turning 2 months. She is now 5 months and still loving this item after several weeks of play....more info
- My baby really love it...
Since the first moment that my baby use the gym has a lot of fun!!...
- poor quality!!
I have been very disapointed with the Rainforest items but especially this one. It does not travel well nor is it able to be stored easily. My four month old was able to bend one of the arcs and he is not even that strong! I don't think the developers at Rainforest have kids......more info
- Rainforest Deluxe Gym
Bought this for my niece to use when she visits my house. She loves it so much it has gone home with her and is used every day....more info
- very cute and useful
since the first day I got this my 3 month old son started to roll over on his stomach, I was so surprised he has never done it before. He loves all the toys and music. I have alot of fisher price rainforest toys and he loves them all....more info
- Cute but very expensive --could have been better.
As other reviewers have pointed out it does not store or travel well and the mat is very thin, we have ours on top of a thick blanket that has been folded. But what bothers me is the price; I paid $65.00 for ours and probably would not have bought it had I not had a $20.00 gift card to off set the cost. BUT I will say this, my baby does enjoy it very much :-) and that is priceless!
- My son's favorite toy!
My son just turned 5 months old and this is still one of his favorite toys! You definitly get your money's worth-he uses this toy at least once per day...he also has the fisher price jumparoo which is AWESOME! he still loves the lights on the gym and the butterflys that hang down! Worth every penny! Fisher Price did a great job on the Rainforest collection!...more info
- Wonderful adventure for a little baby!
I bought this for my newborn grandson, and he absolutely LOVES it. There is just enough activity for him, not so much as to over-stimulate.
It's very easy to assemble, and I'd consider it one of my better purchases for my little angel. :)...more info
- Overpriced, Mobile does not spin by itself.
I rated this a 3 on the basis that it cost $70.00 and the misunderstanding that the mobile actually spun on it's own,
I guess the baby is supposed to spin the butterfly's?? Very DISSAPOINTING
Fisher Price! The music is nice though, my baby does like the nature
sounds, he is 3 weeks old and it puts him right to sleep. I thought
there would be more to this gym for the price, it's not a large mat
and I don't see baby fitting on it for more than a few months before he is longer than it. Over all im thinking of returning it and getting my money back, It would be worth the money if the mobile actually spun by itself....more info
- perfect play mat
i chose this playmat because of the light feature it has on the top. it seems to be well made and have lots of activities for my baby to use once he is older. so far it works great as a mat for him to stretch out on. ...more info
- Lots of fun for baby
We got this as gift when our daughter was first born. We used it up until she was around 6 or 7 months. She loved looking at herself in the little mirror and she loved the noise of all the different materials and the rattle. I seriously think this helped her learn to roll over when we faced her away from the mirror or elephant rattle since she would try to turn over to look into the mirror or kick the elephant....more info
