Can I clean or wash the Play Gym? 

Yes. The Activity Mat and Learn to Focus Zone can go in the washing machine along with the Montessori Ball. Prior to washing, close the attachment loops on all 3 corners. Launder in cold water on the gentle cycle. Make sure to press the squeakers in the Making Sounds Zone several times to remove any excess water. We recommend all product components to be air dried. The wooden and plastic components should not be laundered but can be wiped down with a damp cloth as needed.

How are the Play Kits different from the Play Gym? Is there overlap? 

The Baby Play Kits and Play Gym complement each other, with very little overlap. Both are stage-based to promote baby's brain development. The Play Gym offers a whole year of play for foundational brain development, while the baby Play Kits target two-month blocks of development for deeper focus. The Play Gym and first year of Play Kits are meant to complement each other, so there are some important concepts (like the use of black and white high-contrast images) that are highlighted in both the Gym and in the first Play Kit in particular, but in different ways (so a rattle, a special first book, etc.). Furthermore, we know that many of our parents like to have playthings specifically for use with the Play Gym as opposed to a set to put in the diaper bag, take to grandma's house, etc. But we know that every baby plays differently and that needs differ depending on lifestyle.

Where can I find assembly instructions for the Play Gym and the Play Space Cover? How do I put the Play Gym together? 

Watch our assembly videos here.

How do I store the Play Gym? 

The legs disconnect from the connector in seconds and can be laid inside the mat and rolled up for storage. For long-term storage, we recommend saving the box.

When can I start using the Play Gym? What ages are the Play Gym designed for? 

The Play Gym is designed for babies from 0-12 months of age, but we see many older babies and toddlers enjoying it, too! Babies 12-18 months of age especially enjoy the Play Gym with the Play Space Cover added.

Does Lovevery offer replacement parts for the Play Gym?

Yes! We are happy to help you order a replacement plaything if something gets lost or chewed up by a furry friend (it happens!). Contact us and we’d be glad to help.
