    Pros: None
    Cons: Too bulky, gym moves when kicked so must prop against something, and noise scares child

    Pros: Colorful and musical
    Cons: Far outweighing the pros: DANGEROUS!!!

    Cons: Your child will outgrow this quickly, and it is not easy to store

    Summary: We bought the Kick Start gym when our daughter was 6 weeks old, on the recommendation of a few friends with babies the same age. There is not very much a 6 week old can do -- they can't really hold things (heck, they can barely hold their head up!), so ... read more
