Stationary activity centers

If you list products on our store, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and our policies applicable to those products and product listings, including this policy.

Stationary activity centers covered by this policy

A stationary activity center is a freestanding product that is intended for use by children who are able to hold their heads up unassisted, but are not yet able to walk. The activity center enables a sitting or standing child to walk, rock, play, spin, or bounce, within a limited range of motion. The child’s torso is completely surrounded by the stationary product. Activity centers can vary in style and design complexity, but typically consist of a seating area that is suspended from a frame by springs, or supported from the bottom by a fixed base.

Our policy for stationary activity centers
