At this year’s Red Dot Award the jury selected the Done by Deer Activity Gym to receive one of the prestigious awards amongst no less than 5,214 products and innovations from 57 nations submitted for the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016.
Only products which set themselves apart considerably, through their excellent design, receive the sought-after quality seal from the international Red Dot jury.
The Activity Gym
The idea by the Done by Deer design team was to create a unique and flexible activity gym that does not require a baby blanket to stand – a new take on the classic activity gym. The award winning result is the free standing and easily adjustable Activity Gym that can be placed anywhere e.g. the floor, a bed, a sofa or on the changing table. The Activity Gym not only sparks the imagination of the little ones but is also a modern design piece in the home.
Width and height of the Activity Gym can easily be adjusted, an innovative feature that also helps babies reach the three eye catching toys which can be hung from the center of the arc. The included toys, Croco, Nozo and a hanging mirror, will crackle and rattle when touched, all to stimulate a baby’s senses. A mirror on one leg of the arc and a soft patch on the other also attract the attention of little eyes and fingers.
The Activity Gym is soft and safe for babies to play with, it stands firmly on its two feet and being flexible it is no problem to store away, move around or bring along when going places.
