This unique concept from Infantino provides an angled surface for babies to experience tummy time play. Tummy time is a must for head, trunk and upper body strength for infants, but some babies cry and become upset because it can be so difficult. The incline helps to reduce the effects of gravity, making it easier for some babies to lift their heads. The bar of toys can also be angled in various positions, challenging babies to reach higher and further as they become stronger. The musical timer allows parents to track how much time babies spend on their tummy.
