Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym

A super cute and modern activity mat that I had to write about is the Skip Hop Treetop Friends Activity Gym. This is a nature inspired activity mat that has 17 developmental activities to keep your baby stimulated for a long time. With neutral colors  that are still stimulating for baby, parents will also love this mat.


  • Use from birth on up
  • 5 multi-sensory hanging toys – chiming owl, mirror apple, rattle birdie, nutty squirrel, singing birdie
  • Arches – 13 loops to hang toys anywhere, fabric is linen and patterned
  • Round mat with a tree has multiple fabrics and activities – crinkle leaves, squeaker flower, baby-safe mirror
  • Crescent shaped tummy time pillow included
  • Machine washable mat (after mirror is removed)
  • Remove the arches for a travel play mat
  • When baby is finished with the activity mat, hang it on the wall for decoration

The Skip Hop Friends Activity Mat is an aesthetically pleasing mat. It is different than many other activity mats in that it is not loud with an abstract array of bright colors. I love this mat but I do not love the price. Compared to many other activity mats that may be loud but are even more engaging and stimulating (additional lights and music) for babies, it is expensive. At $75, I do not think it is worth the money because you are not getting anything better other than a cute and stylish  “jungle themed” activity mat.
