Review: Tiny Love Gymini Total Playground — Kick & Play

2009 October 10
by MieVee @ MummysReviews.com
Tiny Love Gymini

We bought this gymini months before Baby V was born when it was on sale at Robinson’s. There were several Tiny Love gyminis available and somehow I was more attracted to this one (Gymini Total Playground — Kick & Play) over the others.

The first time that Baby V played with it was when he turned two months old and was more alert. Since then, I have been placing him in the gymnini almost every morning while I spray his cloth diapers. This baby playgym keeps him very busy with the rattles attached to the arches and a large mirror. Just before turning five months old, he accomplished his first roll-over in the gymini and shifted his body clockwise for one big round. That really brightened my day!

Recently, I even started changing his diapers on the gymini to keep him still for at least a few minutes. Superb value-for-money!

Pros:

  • Baby V loves being in it and it can keep him entertained for quite a while
  • Machine washable playmat which retains its bright colours even after a few washes
  • Very portable

Cons:

  • Music box became faulty after only a few weeks — volume is very soft unless the box is banged
  • Wind chime toy recalled (View details at CPSC website here)

Get Your Own

Tiny Love Gymini Total Playground — Kick & Play doesn’t seem to be available at Amazon.com, probably due to the recall of the wind chime.

    Hi, you mentioned that the wind chime toy which came together with the Tiny Love Gymini was recalled. I bought the same thing as yours few months back, but at the time of buying it, I was not aware of the wind chime toy being recalled.

    Could you share with me what did you do when you realized it was recalled? I.e., did you return it to the shop/manufacturer? I went to the link you posted (http://www.cpsc.gov) and it was written that “consumers should immediately take the recalled wind chimes from babies and contact Tiny Love to receive a free replacement toy”.

    I’m actually quite worried about this now, and frankly, quite shocked that this is still sold in Singapore.

    Thanks for your view, mummy MieVie!

      Hi Chloe, thank you for visiting my blog! :)

      Recalls at CPSC website usually apply to those residing in U.S., unless it’s a worldwide recall. I simply threw the windchime toy away, as per a few other items affected by other recalls (various brands). I use the links to hang a variety of other toys too.

      My gymnini is definitely bought before the recall. As for yours, the manufacturer may have updated the design? You may contact the local distributor to check.

      There’re too many baby / kids products available, so it helps when parents share info with each other and with the relevant distributors / authorities when needed.

      All the best to you! :)
