What is the aim of a baby play gym? You are free to inquire. It's a fluffy mat with two arches that support toys that hang from the ceiling. Others include a plain, safe space for baby to lay, look, and play, with lights, music, baby-safe mirrors, kick-activated pianos, tummy time pillows, and various textured materials.
We recommend baby play gyms Australia so highly as an occupational therapist that WE included them as the first product in my post 15 Toys for Baby's First Year. They can be used from when your baby is born until they can crawl (and some babies enjoy them even beyond that stage).

Faces are favored and best seen by new born babies (so spend lots of face-to-face time with your baby!), accompanied by items of sharply contrasting colors such as black and white.

About the age of four months, babies begin to gain depth perception (which coincides with the creation of those deliberate cause/effect actions), helping them to enjoy their baby gym more because they can see what they're looking for while reaching for toys!
Advantages in grasping and touching abilities:
