American Baby’s Baby Booty: Busy Busy Busy!

Baby Einstein's new Baby Neptune saucer

We used to call my daughter’s activity center “the office.” We’d put her in, and she’d sit with a determined expression and get busy with the toys, spinning herself slowly around to access all of them. Her seriousness about it was hysterical for the adults in the house. It also drove home to us the adage that “play is a child’s work.” Mastering toys is a baby’s job!

Does your baby have an activity center or jumper that he or she adores? If so, we want to hear about it for our American Baby Bests contest. We’re taking nominations for products that babies and parents love, and will turn those into polls that will go live in a few weeks. (Don’t worry, I’ll announce when they’re up!) In the meantime, you can vote for your favorite baby products here. You have to join our Parents.com community in order to post there, but the good news is, posting about your favorite products makes you eligible for a $250 prize! The rules for that contest are here.

Meanwhile, if you don’t yet have an activity center and need one…this could be your big break! We’re photographing this awesome Baby Neptune Activity Saucer, from Baby Einstein, for a summer issue. And we’ve got an extra one still in its box that we’re happy to ship out to a baby who seriously needs to play. Leave a comment below—you can leave a comment once a day—anytime between now and the end of the day Wednesday, March 21st. We’ll randomly pick a person to win this $90 supertoy. You can read the full rules here. Goody luck!

How happy is this baby?!

    I would absolutely love this for my 5month old. Things are kind of tight financially for my husband and I and getting him the things he needs is very hard. I’d love to give him
    Everything he needs but unfortunately only when we can afford it. This would be a great start to entertaining him more.

    My 6 month old would enjoy this a ton! He is at that age where he is so interested in holding and grasping anything & everything he can get his hands on, including my hair! He loves to hold and examine new objects. This seems very similiar to the Jumperoo, which I had looked at, but it is way too expensive for my budget, unfortunately. I’d love to help further my sons development and watch him enjoy this great Activity Saucer!

    On March 17, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    There is nothing better than seeing my son happy as he grows through each milestone. He is 6 months and at the stage where he loves grasping and moving toys from hand to hand. He loves bright colors as well. I’d love to see him enjoying himself in this. Plus, he’s outgrowing his smaller swings and could use a place to sit and keep himself busy!!!

    My daughter is 4 months old and is always wanting to play but doesn’t want to lay down. She loves sitting up just can’t do it alone yet. I’d be amazing if we had something like this to sit her in so she could play and also be upright (and plus shed be working all those important muscles) I’ve been dying to get her a seat like this but all those diapers, wipes and formula aren’t leaving much spending money!
