Infantino Twist and Fold Activity Gym

I was recently selected to be a part of the Infantino Test Drive Mom program and was super excited. Since I am now working with infants and children, I knew I could give some serious feedback about these products! The first item I had the chance to try out was the Twist and Fold Activity Gym. I love that is folds up nice and neat, because in my facility space is of the essence! So of course when I brought the Gym to the baby room, all of the other nurses and aides were super excited!! You can imagine, when you are responsible for 5-6 infants anything that keeps them occupied is a beautiful thing!!

The first very exciting thing about this Activity Gym is the colors. I love that they are very stimulating to babies and really catches their eye! You can also use this as learning time and teach the little ones their colors. I know some people may think that is a bit much..but trust me. My little man started spouting off things I had taught him a year before when he began to talk!

The fun animals are extremely eye catching to the kiddos as they attempt to reach them and play with them. None of our babies in the infant room have quite grabbed it yet, but it’s not for lack of trying. I so wish that I could take a picture of their delighted little faces as they go after these toys! This activity is also extremely important in my line of work. Many of the children that attend my facility are delayed in their cognitive and fine motor abilities. This play gym allows them to work on those, in a FUN way!!

We highly recommend the Twist and Fold Activity Gym from Infantino . It is fun, eye catching and easy to put away! It grants the tired nurses at my job a few moments to chart when we might not have had any!

I am a participant in a Mom Central campaign for Infantino and have received various Infantino products to as part of my participation.


  1. I had an Infantino gym for my last baby and we all absolutely loved it. It kept her entertained for a very long time. Even after she learned to sit up and crawl she still loved to play with it. They have great products!


  2. That sounds like something I would have loved to have when my child was small. It was what I wanted but never found. Something that would allow her the space to move (or try to roll), the comfort, and was attractive and stimulating for her, all the while being easy for me to carry around and handle. Too bad she's all grown up now!

    Oh well, maybe when I'm a grandma :)

  3. That looks really cool and we are currently looking for baby products and any help we can get with what is good and not good is most appreciated.

  4. That looks like a product I'd be interested in buying in the near future ;) I like that it doesn't close the baby in so you can still see each other.
