 Looking for an activity center that beats the rest? Well look no further.

The Skip Hop Explore & More Baby’s View 3-Stage Interactive Activity Center was one of the best purchases I made for our son. I’m just going to start this review by saying, it’s a must buy…worth every penny.

As an infant, this activity table enabled me to get things done while my son enjoyed playing in a safe, contained area. I could keep my eye on him and the clip on toys kept him entertained while I got chores done around the house. My son LOVED it as an infant and still uses it as a toddler.

 

This activity center was designed by a pediatrician and is made in America. As you can tell by the name, it can be used in 3 stages.

Stage 1 – allows your baby to sit, swivel all the way around (360 degrees), bounce, and play with all the toys.

Stage 2 – for infants and toddlers learning to walk. When your baby is ready to get out of the seat, they can use the table to stand and play.

Stage 3 – transforms into a table perfect for play or eating.

Who is the Skip Hop Explore & More Baby’s View3 Stage Activity Center for?

This table can be used for children 4 months and older. Since it converts to a table, you can literally use this activity center for years. My now 2 year old uses it for arts and crafts and for eating meals.

Features

This gender neutral activity center comes with 5 colorful and interactive toys that clip onto the table and can be easily rearranged. They’re great for motor skill and cognitive development. It also includes a snack bowl with a suction cup to avoid spills.

Four Key Piano

The piano lights up as it plays music. You can set it to play a single sound or to play a song. Your little one can enjoy playing the keyboard with his hands or place it in the keyboard holder on the bottom platform so he can play with his feet.

Peek-A-Boo Owl

Press the leaf to make the owl pop out of the tree

Trees

The trees go from light green to green and your little one can sway them from side to side.

Cloud

The cloud has beads inside and can be pushed in different directions. It’s basically a rattle that can be attached to the table so your little one can’t accidentally drop it.

Snack Bowl

Cute little bowl that we still use after converting the activity center into a table. The suction cup keeps it in place.

Hedge Hog Bead Chaser and Spinner

This reminds me of the toys that they always have at the pediatrician offices. You can move the beads and hedge hog along the curved line and spin the yellow and blue spinner.  JC used to sit and spin this over and over again.

Accessibility

The activity center is available almost everywhere. Here are my favorite retailers:

Assembly & Adjustability

This is one of the few toys that require assembly that I was able to do on my own, without getting frustrated and having hubby assemble himself. It’s easy to assemble and transition. You can also adjust the height of the platform so your child won’t outgrow it.

Here’s a video that shows how to assemble and transform the activity table.  

Cleaning

This is super easy to clean. Just grab a Lysol wipe and wipe it down. The wipe part is the easiest to clean, the gray platform requires some elbow grease, but still doesn’t take long to clean. If your baby is drooler or your toddler is messy, you’ll want to remove the parts to make sure you’re cleaning the entire center or table.

Below you’ll see how much my toddler enjoys coloring on this table 🙂 and how easy it is to clean. Keep scrolling for videos.
