No tools or fasteners required. Assembly by an adult is recommended. The legs snap into the frame sockets at the ends of the arches with a simple push until each leg clicks into place. Make sure that each of the four legs are fully inserted into the arches before use with a baby. Loop the attachment links to the frame and the toys to the links.

The Play Gym unfolds by pulling the arches into the open position.

Re-arrange and adjust the heights to accommodate your baby’s preferences. Toys and links can be removed for individual play and/or cleaning.


Ensure legs are securely fastened to frame. Inspect links and toys for cleanliness and breakage before each use. Wipe clean with disinfecting wipes or clean in the sink with dish soap and water as needed.

Crib Gym - The ONLY Gym That Can Be SAFELY Used in a Crib and on the Floor

Julia Lewis
This worked well

I liked how it had the four sturdy legs and how it folded up. I wished there was one more ring on each of the toys making them longer. When my baby used this they never quite reached him and I felt like he would have enjoyed it all the more if he could hold/touch the toys. Still happy with the choice over others available.

VERY light weight. When baby begins to roll, crawl, pull up it will fall over. It served us for 2-3 months

Fiona Walker

Very useful! You can interchange the toys. Baby enjoys it!

Julio Kasumba
Great entertainment!

This is a very good activity gym to keep at our house for our 3 month old granddaughter. She loves it and it keeps her entertained for awhile. The only concern I have (and the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars) is the pointy piece that holds the butterfly in place. Replace it with something round or make it shorter.
