Did your LO have a favorite ?

Honestly? A cheap one. I know it sounds bad, but we got a REALLY nice one with lights and music and a mobile and guess what? It quit working but even when it did work he wasn't as excited about that stuff. As long as it has bright colors and fun doo-dads your LO will be happy
The top one is the one he uses all the time...the bottom one is at my mom's for when he's there (but I think it's actually in a closet b/c he lost interest)

I agree with babyjmama..get whatever's on sale. Or baby likes my mother in laws just as much as she likes ours. Ours was like 40 bucks. Hers was 10.

We have the boppy circus one and DS loves it! It has little rings that you can attach other toys to it-so we add his Jacques the peacock and other little clipping toys for him to grab. Love it!

We had the skip hop one and DD loved it. However we used a gift card to buy it. May have just gotten one on sale if we had to pay ourselves

We have this one. I like that it twists up easy to store it out of the way.

We have the skip hop one. We got it as a gift at a surprise baby shower when I was only 17 weeks along so I never picked it out. We love it! However, we would have picked a cheaper one because its a little more than we would have wanted to spend personally.

I have the skip hop one. Go with a cheaper one cause they are not worth $75

We have a Baby Einstein one, as well - LO has used it every single day since about 3 weeks old. Now we have taken off the bars and attach the toys around the sides since he's sitting on his own.

We have an infantino one...I think it was less than 20. I honestly don't see the point in getting one more expensive because you will want to trade the toys out at some point....so get a cheap one and then get other toys if you want (we cycle them between the gym, the bouncy chair, the carseat if they are soft, and just playing with them in our hands). I would get one with two bars that cross in the middle instead of one, more toys that way. I have heard good things about the kick and play piano but gah I would not want to hear that all day long. oh also some exersaucers convert into play gyms so if you are going to get one I would just do that. Ours does but we just got it for Christmas so we missed the boat on using it for that purpose.
Oh also pretty much before they are big enough to roll over they will be too big to roll over under one of these gyms. We use a yoga mat and are currently rug shopping....
