Opinions on baby item

I have been wanting to get my son one of those Rainforest gym play mat toys but of course I would never pay $70.00 for it. I just saw one on Craigslist. The person was selling it for $30 and says that they will not go down on the price. Is there anybody that has this or has had it for their baby that can tell me if it would be worth $30. I personally think $30 is too much for this used item. What do you all think?

Here's a review...

And, some pricing (it appears you can get a NEW one for about $35, so I'd say $30 is too much)...

i wouldnt even spend $30 on a new one.. my son rarely used his, and it was a huge waste of money.  Try looking on walmart.com if you are dead set on getting one.. you can probably find a bright stars one for like $15-$20. good luck!! :)

I agree waste of money.  by the time they are really old enough to really enjoy it they are on the move and wont just lay there.

It's actually the one that is priced for $69. It's the Rainforest lights and melodies Play gym but it's still a rediculous price. The thing is that babies don't use these things for long so I hate to spend  alot of money on them.

My baby only used hers for like a month.  It was a waste of money.

I'd look around.  I've seen similar gyms at Ross for $19.99.  $30 seems way too much for used.
