This is going to be my first official review for a baby product and I’m really excited about it as I was thrilled to receive an item from one of the most trusted companies on the market.
The Fisher Price Discover and Grow Activity Bouncer could not have come at a better time! Because it suits babies from birth I was able to use it straight away with Leonardo. It literally makes my baby content and allows him to relax and spend some time bouncing around in a comfortable colourful seat.
We used to have a bouncer when Beatrice was just few months old and I remember I loved it as she enjoyed sitting on it and I was allowed some “free time” to clean around while I was sure she was safely sitting there.
That’s why I was more than happy to receive one for little Leonardo. He’s only 3 weeks old and he fits perfectly on the Fisher Price bouncer. Most of the time when I place him there, he falls asleep and sleeps without waking up for hours. If i didnt know babies could only spend max of 2 hours on a bouncer, I’m sure he’d be happy to sleep there all day!
The Fisher Price bouncer is very colourful and the seat is well padded so baby is pretty cozy. A practical point is that the material can be removed and put in the washing machine.
The bouncer has the option to put a little vibration effect that Leonardo loves ! It actually makes him fall asleep easier. What I noticed is that although we keep forgetting the vibration option on, I’m still surprised that the battery hasn’t run out yet and this is a big plus because it allows you to keep it on all the time without worrying to having to buy batteries often.
When I see that Leonardo is sleepy I sit him there and then bounce him to sleep (most of the time it take no more than 10 minutes!). He truly looks very comfortable as the seat has a particular shape that fits the baby like he’d be in a little nest, he looks so cozy!
The bouncer has the option to fit in 2 different arms with little colourful animals attached. The music on the bar is motion activated so although at the moment Leonardo is too small to play with, I’m sure that when he will be a bit older, he will enjoy discovering what to do in order to turn the music on. So far he enjoys the bright colours and spends quite long time looking at the animals on the bar.
From a practical point of view we found the bouncer very easy to assemble as you only need a screedriver. From a safety point of view the non-slip feet are pretty good to keep the bouncer steady especially on wooden floors.
Overall the Fisher Price bouncer is a really good product and I feel totally safe to leave my baby happily bouncing next to me while I’m busy doing other stuff and knowing he’s a happy baby while sitting there. This is a product that I would definitely recommend to use from birth because babies at this stage are very demanding and this bouncer would definitely help you to rest your arms! Plus if you see your baby happy and you know he is in a safe place then happy days for everyone!
