Every parent I know raves about it. It keeps their child occupied for hours, it gives their child time on their feet, allowing them to be really active without getting into trouble and the lights and sounds keep them entertained and engrossed as they find new colours, hear new sounds and find things to spin and move back and forth.
Lacie has been a huge fan of the Fisher Price Jumperoo for months – me too, but I do hate how much room it takes up and that I have to keep it out as I can’t be bothered to take it apart and put it in the cupboard every time she doesn’t want to use it.
Lucky for me, I got my hands on the new Space Saver Jumperoo, and despite the fact that it’s much smaller and folds away, she still loves it just as much and it still keeps her entertained and happy while I make the dinner. Yes, she is walking now, but she loves hanging onto my legs when I’m cooking dinner, which I find so dangerous – and a tad annoying! It holds children up to 25lbs, she is just hit 19, which means we still have some growing room despite the fact that she is 12 months.
The first advantage of the new model is that it just snaps together. No tools required – everything just clips together making the install quite easy. The second advantage is that it folds away. Just remove the toy bar (which can then be stored safely under the seat), drop the seat down and move the back bar forward, and voila.
So what happens when you want to use it again? Well, it’s simple. You just lift the seat up, the pull the front out, then clip the toy bar back on. Nifty!
