Fisher Price Tracking Lights Musical Gym Review and Giveaway

I've spent all morning reasoning with lufflump. Some may call it arguing but without a raised voice I'm inclined to continue with calling it reasoning.

'No, leave your sister alone.'
'Do not lie on your sister's head.'
'Please do not turn that off.'
'Let me move your sister before you lay down on the mat.'
Hello friend
It would appear that I have a three year old slightly obsessed with a 0-12month play gym.
Lufflump is a tad too big
The four month old is also a fan of the Fisher Price Tracking Lights Musical Gym. Us parents are also fans. Not that we get down and play like the children but any fun activity for them that lets us have a coffee in peace is a friend of ours.

Sesame can easily reach the toys with her hands and feet and the toys can easily be changed around. She's loving using her feet lately and gets such a shock when she kicks the sound and lights on.
Sesame using both her hands and feet to play
The Tracking Lights Musical Gym makes one of three animal noises (monkey, frog and elephant) before launching into music with the four lights 'dancing' to the music. Sesame loves to follow the lights with her eyes which is great for her development. The lights also help to keep her interested that little bit longer than other play gyms.

Lufflump loves to be the animal that makes the sounds; hopping around like a frog, laughing like a monkey or having a long nose like an elephant. I love that the music can either be adjusted, either loud or quiet. That definitely is brilliant if there are lots of other noises going around or if it's quiet time.

The mat is awesome too as it can be used for tummy time as well. Not that sesame stays on her tummy for long now she knows how to roll over. Hopefully she'll start rolling back onto her stomach so more tummy time occurs.

Lufflump loves playing with the lion and elephant that are on the sides of the arches. Well he likes turning their heads around many times until it irritates me. That boy knows how to push buttons and he loves it!

Watching sesame playing on the Tracking Lights Musical Gym right now brings a smile to my face, it's so wonderful to watch her discovering new things including her hands and feet. She's one happy camper which means the rest of the family are too.
Happy sesame

This is a sponsored conversation written by me for Mattel. All opinions expressed are my own. 


  1. Lying down on the floor with them looking into a handheld mirror. It's so much fun to practice making faces and for baby to see the two of you together - also it's really awesome just to lie down for a while! ;P

  2. Laying under the lemon tree watching the wind blow the leaves. Whenever my little ones have been grumpy taking them outside works. I hope it does for the next one due in September too!!

  3. Those first conversations, when a newborn looks into your eyes and gurgles and coos, and you know s/he's really trying to communicate with you. Encouraging those conversational skills is so special and fun!

  4. I so want one of these - and my baby is due in 6weeks6 days so it would come in very handy indeed!
    My favourite activity for a newborn - aside from massive cuddles! - is sitting or lying together with a mirror and watching their little faces as they try and figure out who they can see reflected. There is always that first beautiful moment when they recognise Mummy, and then that moment of realisation that the other gorgeous face staring out is theirs!

  5. With Jellybelly I had a flashy bouncer with a mirror in it.. She loved it. When my nephew was a newbie I would pull faces at him. I miss having a newborn...

  6. My fav is daddy. Nothing feels or makes funny noises as good as daddy. Nothing will ever make a baby smile and crack up and snort like a daddy in pain. :)

    1. Oh and this is me prisoner of society...forgot that bit

  7. The precious moments spent with my mom. Just her and me lying together in silence, so close and so connected!

  8. OMG just thinking about this has got me super clucky and excited - am expecting my second daughter in about 18 weeks! After much thought, what I am looking forward to most, and therefore I guess my favourite activity for a newborn, would have to be breastfeeding her! After all that's what you spend most (if not all!) of the time doing in those first proper newborn days...aw man I can't wait :)

  9. I'm not entering, I just wanted to say that my two big ones (four & seven) have been driving their brother nuts with his as well! They keep "showing him how to play" LOL


Just like everyone else I LOVE comments and they make me SMILE. I'll reply as soon as I can, but please know that I appreciate and read EVERY single comment. Thanks xxx
