As this is one of our favorite baby essentials i thought i would write a review on it because this is one of the baby items that helped to save our sanity over the last few years. I do consider it to be an essential in our house and i do not know how we survived without it when we had out first three children.
We bought this when our fourth child was 6 months old. He was an over active baby, never slept for more than 10 minutes at a time during the day and it was exhausting. Then this came along. We assembled it in no time, it was actually very easy to set up. And in he went. He loved it immediatly and so did we. Now we had some hands free time to get done what needed to be done around the house, to tend to the other three children or just tosit and relax with a cup of coffee.
He had something that didn’t include me or my husband to occupy him and he loved it. The seat swivels 360 degrees and the best bit is that the seat comes off, he was also a baby that spit up quite a lot, so it’s easy to wash it. I will say it is a bit fiddly taking on and off the seat though.
It has a number of different toys including a spinner with little balls inside and my baby’s personal favorite a chewy butterfly teether. Well my babies used it as a teether.
It is very sturdy as both my boys were very chunky babies, i always felt safe that this was capable of supporting their weight.
The Music is ok to listen to, you can set it to play continuously or just to play when baby is bouncing my own baby loved the flashing lights. It requires 3 x AA batteries, which are not included with the Jumperoo. It also has 3 different height settings so it grows along with your baby.
When baby number 5 arrived the Jumperoo found it’s way back down from the attic and now takes pride of place in the living room once more. He also loves it, and this is a baby that nothing and no on could pacify in the first few months of his life.
The only negative thing i have to say about this product is the sheer size of it. It does take up quite a bit of floor space, even when it is folded. I think Fisher Price have made a space saver version of it since i bought this.
Also it does make a very loud clattering noise when baby is bouncing that can get quite annoying when listening to it for a long time. But, i will take listening to the noise of it over a crying baby any day of the week.
If you were thinking of buying one of these i would highly recommend it as it has been a lifesaver in our house. It is suitable from 6 months and over. We bought ours at Smyths toys it cost €109.99 and you can buy it Here.
