The Jumbo mat lays flat and can be used to change your baby without having to move or disturbed them, its 48″ so offers plenty of space for your baby to play with you.

You can fold the sides up and to create a safety wall so the baby can’t roll away, this is also the to hold the balls once you convert it to a ball pit.

This ball play activity gym is a great addition to your babies toy selection and is great for tummy time to toddler.


The machine-washable mat has a nice pattern on the base with a range of animals in bright colours around the ‘walls’ of the ball pit.

We think you should buy this bright starts 5-in-1, but don’t just take our word for it. There are some incredible positives to buying one of these that you might not have thought about.

Sensory Toys will help in the development of your baby and help them learn new sounds, textures, and sights.

Ball pits are great for growing toddlers as it really helps to develop their hand-eye coordination.

Having the availability to have one side down makes it much easier to play with your baby whilst they are on the mat with the sides up.

If you need to leave them, you have put the fourth side up and pop off safe in the knowledge that they can’t go anywhere.



With 93% of all the reviews on Amazon being 4 or 5 stars it’s difficult to say a bad word about the bright starts 5-in-1.

If we had to point out some of the bits we thoughts might be thought about as negative it would be that the toys are quite spaced out so for babies that cant move it could be difficult for them to grab and play.

Some people also commented that the actual size of the product is smaller than they expected or from what they thought it would be from the photos.

Be sure to check the size properly and not just assume.
