This time of year there can be lots of things around the house that can be a danger to little curious hands. Let's face it, you can't be everywhere all the time. I'm guessing you don't have eyes in the back of your head either. That's why play areas like the Friendly Toys Little Playzone are so helpful. It's brightly colored and includes an activity board with a picture house, spinning balls, play phone and light up musical keyboard. It also has a swinging hinged door with safety lock. When the weather gets warmer, you can pack it up and move it outside. This play area will be useful long after the holidays.

Sometimes it makes sense to purchase the simplest option for a necessity. After all, having a newborn can get expensive and buying something for the bells and whistles is not always the best choice. This Joovy Room2 Portable Play Yard is a great play yard to keep at grandma's house or as a back up in a separate room. It measures 10 square feet, perfect for playing. Just throw in a few favorite toys and your baby will be happy and safe while you take a break or get some cleaning done. If you need to hit the road, you will love the quick and easy fold and set up. The carry bag with shoulder strap also makes transport a breeze. Thank goodness for the simple things.

A big part of our country is buried under several feet of snow. In some places, it's too cold to go out and enjoy it. That's a shame because that usually means one thing: CABIN FEVER! I'm not sure who is bothered more by cabin fever, children or parents. If you need some relief for yourself or your child, you might want to invest in an indoor play set. Consider it an investment in your sanity. This set has a swing, a slide and a ball pit. Kids of all ages love ball pits and you can be sure this one isn't swimming with germs since its in your house. Best of all, there's free shipping on orders over $85. Bring on the snow!

Maybe it's mommy guilt, but I never felt like any of my kids got enough tummy time. There's so much to do with a new baby around, it just always seemed to fall off the schedule. I am sure if I had the Kick and Grow Tummy Zone Mat, I could have squeezed this into our day. It is parent invented, so it is built by someone who really knows what your baby needs. The wedge strengthens your baby's core and provides a variety of sensory stimulus that encourages your baby's development. The best feature is the mat actually grows as your baby grows, simply unroll the mat to a length that suits your baby.

A play gym is an important part of your baby gear. A new parent needs a lot of places to put a wiggly baby to get things done. This Tiny Love Gym teaches cause and effect and has tons of sounds and bright colors to entertain your baby. Best of all the mat is machine washable because little babies always bring big messes.

During these tight economic times, it is great when you can get something that has more than one purpose. Check out this Rock N' Play Center from One Step Ahead. It is a play gym, a travel bed, a rocker, and a mat for tummy time. The bright colors will keep your baby interested and the soft fabric will make him feel comfy. This toy has too many great features to list. The good news is, you can take your time finding them all.

There are so many play gyms to choose from, you might have a hard time deciding which one is the right one for you. This play gym will help you give your little one "the world." The Baby Einstein Discover The World Play Gym has a light up globe and features animals and music from 5 different regions of the world. The base mat is so plush your baby might never want to move from it. It's educational and fun.

It may not feel like springtime in most of the world, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy something spring like in your own home! The Springtime Play Gym by Haba has spring colors, happy little springtime animals throughout, and three removable clutching toys that have different noises and textures. The arches can be converted into a hanging tent using two detachable fabric panels, so your child will get a lot of use out of this play gym!

Unlike a lot of babies, Anderson hated tummy time. We always felt badly whenever we tried it. Perhaps if we had something fun like the Infantino Surfboard Tummy Time Mat, Andy might've enjoyed it more. The design features soft, plush fabric, adorable sea creatures, a prop up pillow, and even a growth chart! If you fill the removable pouch with water, your child can watch the mini "aquarium" come to life. The mat is also available in pink.

I've always thought that it's important to have a few fun play mats for your child that offer a lot of interesting things to look and play with. I really like the Tropic Isle ActiviTot Developmental Gym by Tiny Love because it offers lots of variety, so it's almost like having two! The placement of the pillow, toys and arches can be varied, so your baby can use it as he grows but also while in different positions. There are 17 different activities total with toys both hanging and on the mat. I can't get over the palm leaves, they are so fun!

This 3-in-1 Activity Gym from One Step Ahead looks like so much fun. It has a high-back swing (with security harness), a gently angled slide, and the best part: an irresistibly fun ball pit! The gym can be used indoors or outdoors, and comes with 50 balls. You can buy up to 100 more. I've seen ball pit balls at lots of different places, including Target. All three stations can be used at the same time, and the gym supports up to 231 pounds total.

Tummy time was one of the hardest things for Andy. He hated it with a passion, and I couldn't stand doing it. Every time I did, I'd take a happy baby and make him miserable. I think the Kick and Grow Tummy Zone may have helped our problem because it is at an angle so it doesn't take as much strength to look around. It has a large monkey toy that reverses to a mirror at the top of the slope too. It's also machine washable!
