I bought this for my newborn, he has been laying under it looking at the animals and we would pull elephant to hear music and he loved it. However he can now reach it himself and its already not working. It was probably played 10 times. Its so sad to see him grab it finally but nothing happens. He is 10 weeks old and its already not working. You cannot replace battery without destroying the elephant.

I have had this for about a month now. Like a previous reviewer, my son is also 2 months and cannot yet pull the elephant on his own (certainly tries though). I have the same issue with the elephant's batteries; I really wish they were replaceable since my son loves the music. Maybe it is designed this way for safety. Other than that, I think it's a great value. It has a good assortment of toys and is easy to assemble/move for storage. The mat itself seems to be water resistant and is comfortable enough for naps. I have not experienced the folding issue like one of the other reviewers.

My daughter still really enjoys the Jungle gym, she has used it for about 4 months (she's 7 months now). The elephant stopped making music after a month or so, just like many other reviewers commented. Also, never leave your child unattended, as the folding problem (see previous reviewer) also occurs here quite often. Lastly, I wonder whether all the plastic toys and components are BPA-free. I an't find any information on that on the website and you'd think that a company would use that as a plus in their promos.

My daughter recieved this as a gift 4 months ago when she was born, however in the past few months the elephant has stopped playing the tune. Shes now at the stage she can pull it herself but nothing happens, luckily theres other bits to keep her amused but surely the battery life should last longer (have another product from the sae range which is doin the same after a month - seems like a problem with Bright Starts products)

Great for baby's hand eye coordination

Love this little play gym for my 2 month old, it is amazing how well her hand eye coordination is developing thanks to this. 4 stars instead of 5 for making the beloved elephant's batteries hard to replace because they die within one week. I say hard because you can replace them by ripping him open and pulling out the music box. It takes 3 LR44 batteries which are slsuper cheap. Sew on some Velcro to make it easier next time.

Battery dies so fast

Jungle gym is easy to use but my baby loves the musical elephant and its batteries died within 2 months and we weren't even pulling the cord for the elephant that much. It also seems really difficult for my now 5month baby to pull the cord herself to at least get her 2 seconds of music and she is pretty strong . So now she just gets upset that the elephant doesn't play anymore

I bought this mat a couple months ago and my little guy just turned 4 months. Of course now that he has discovered that the elephant plays music he tries to pull it but the batteries are obviously (according to previous reviews) dying already! Is there a possibility of getting a replacement for it?.... Really! should Velcro or something for replacement batteries!!! Just a recommendation if u keep producing this product!

Batteries dead in Elephant

We have had this for about 2 months and our son is 2 months old. He doesnt pull on the elephant on his own yet. We pull on it to play music a few times daily. It now stops playing after a few seconds. After reading other reviews here i am guessing the batteries are dying. I do not see any way to replace them..... He does really like the yellow tiger the most ;)

Poor battery life in Elephant

The batteries in the elephant do not last long (<2 month with very irregular use). Please consider ability to change batteries in future products or offer replacement elephants available to purchase. Overall nice, simple mat, easy to foldaway. Perfect for entertaining my son at his grandparents. Would not recommend for regular, everyday use.

I had received this as a gift for my baby shower on 3/7/15. Baby was born 4/8/15. Used it for 4 days with the musical toy working wonderfully. Then after the 4th day it just completely stopped. Still have the toys but baby doesn't like it much.

I got this mat as a gift for my son, I already had to have the elephant replaced once because it stopped working out of nowhere, being that we hardly every used it was annoying. Only got the replacement elephant about 2 months ago and the new one is already dying on us.

We bought this for our granddaughter for Easter this year. Unfortunately after 3 1/2 months, the elephant has stopped working. She loves this part and we are disappointed that the battery is not replacable. Will you replace it?

My son is 4 months, he moves around a lot when on the play mat. I have no clue how he does it but he can fold the play mat over on him self. I don't know if my cild is the only one that can do this but I thought I should share.
