This battery-free gym will entertain your baby while laying or sitting, as it can be transformed into an upright seat for supported sitting and playing.
Lay and play – During stage one, place your baby on their back and attach the city-loving accessories – rattling shoes, dog and pigeon plush toys and a baby-safe donut mirror – in the right position and at the appropriate length for your baby. The shoes can also be worn on your baby’s feet to encourage lifting their legs.
Tummy Time - Encourage repeated head lifting during stage two, by introducing the special double-sided, traffic-themed, tummy-time pillow and positioning the accessories on the mat. The mirror is specially designed for hanging or propping up on the mat.
Sit-Up play - When your baby is ready to sit up at stage three, easily transform the playmat into a safe and harnessed seat. Slip the pillow into the special pocket under your baby’s feet to ensure enhanced comfort. Choose one of two seat safety positions—a snug fit for younger babies 5 months plus, and a slightly larger fit for babies 8 months plus. Promote ‘sit and play’ time by positioning the accessories on the arch in front of them for eye-level engagement or put the rattling shoes on your baby’s feet to encourage leg lifting.
Fold easily for convenient storage or travel, maintaining its hygiene and cleanliness as it folds inwards.

How do I use this product properly?

What is the weight limit for the Sit-Up position?

When is the right time to transform the gym from its laying position to the Sit-Up position?
When babies show signs that they are ready and try to sit up by themselves, it’s a good time to transition the gym to its Sit-Up position, giving your baby the needed support.
How do I know if my baby is ready for the Sit-Up position?
Your baby is ready for the Sit-Up position if you notice initial sitting efforts, such as stretching the neck and shoulders to look around from a reclined position. Your baby should be engaged and looking around. Please note that babies are not ready if they are unable to support their head.
How do I transform the gym from its laying position to the Sit-Up position?
The transition is easy. Simply follow the instructions on one of the following sources:
- video tutorial
- Online Instruction PDF or printed instructions (arrives with the product)
- Printed instruction on the back of the gym
- Printed instruction on the safety harness cardboard
How can I make sure my baby doesn’t slouch down in the Sit-Up position?
Find and tighten the safety strap using the buckles on both sides of the safety seat pad. For larger babies, raise the straps and unfold the seat flap to increase support.
What age is the Sit Up-Stage for?
Sit-Up and Play (stage 3) is geared towards babies that can hold their heads safely and are beginning to independently show interest in sitting upright. If your child is about 5+ months old make sure the seat flap of the safety harness is folded for a better fit. For a slightly larger fit for babies 8 months plus, unfold the seat flap.
Why should I want my baby to sit?
Sitting provides babies with a different perspective of their surroundings, and allows them to observe, socialize, and interact with the world in ways that lying down may inhibit. From the age of 6 months and on, it is recommended to have your baby sit up in order to enable them to play with both hands and make eye contact with adults.
Why won’t the arches lock?
The Gymotion arches will lock only when the mat is placed on a flat surface.
How do I fold the arches?
Turn the keys of the safety locks on the sides of the gym between the arches to switch from the locked to unlocked position. Lean the arches toward each other until they meet and then secure them closed with the Velcro strap.
What is the size of the Urban Gymotion Lay to Sit-Up Play when fully folded?
It folds up to the size of 31.5 x 18 inches (80 cm x 45 cm).
Can I wash the mat?

Can I wash the figures and rattles?

How do I detach the mat from the structure?

Fold the Urban Gymotion Lay to Sit-Up Play, as noted in the online Instruction PDF or printed instructions (which arrive with the product). Then, unfasten the Velcro straps at the bottom of the pockets and on the back of the seat and carrying handle slot. Pull the mat upwards and out of the frame.
