    Rainforest™ 1-2-3 Musical Gym

Help your baby learn more:

    • Demonstrate activities your baby can't reach yet—playing music or making something rattle or move.
    • Help your baby learn the connection between actions and reactions. Put baby's hand or foot within reach of the dangling toys. From there, it's bound to happen: baby's hand or foot will connect and activate a fun response from the toy!
    • Encourage your child to explore by pointing out colorful activities and describing features. To build memory skills, switch the position of dangling toys from time to time; your baby is likely to notice the change.
