Barely a moment passes before your little one is alert, aware, and ready for the sights, sounds and textures of life. And throughout those crucial first stages of development, a baby activity gym and play mat is the perfect setting for baby to explore the world in safety.

But with so many options out there, it’s tough to make a call on the best activity gym or play mat for your little monster.

So here’s a pitch. Literally! Our range of sports-themed baby activity gyms offer a colourful and engaging environment for your little one’s playtime. Comfortable for tummies and backs, our plump green unisex play mats – and safe sporty toys and accessories – are designed to develop little muscles and excite little minds.

Of course we’re biased, but watching a newborn laughing, learning and growing on their very own hallowed sports field is an awesome sight for moms, dads and sports fanatics anywhere.

For little (and big) Manchester United, Real Madrid or LA Galaxy fans, our soccer baby gym features a gorgeous green mat complete with scoreboard, smiling crowd and a hanging ball that lets out an audible cheer when little fingers grab it.

Our sports baby gym has four corners for four different ball games in one. For mini Bears, Cowboys and Giants there’s a dangling football overhead. For little Rangers, Cubs and Pirates there’s a baseball section. And for baby Bulls, Rockets and 76ers, the basketball corner has a scoreboard/mirror that’s also ideal for helping little one’s self awareness.

Why we created Little Sport Star

Nick and his wife had an amazing baby shower idea, to start a unique range of sports themed toys. They called the brand Little Sport Star. They wanted other parents to enjoy their favourite sports with their babies. Their baby shower idea caught on. By 2016 Little Sport Star was available in iconic stores such as Toys R Us and in 2018 were delighted when Serena Williams gave the baby tennis racket to her daughter, Olympia.
