We are a huge fans of Fisher Price a company who have been around for ages, i can remember having a Fisher Price Chatter Phone when i was a toddler and i use to love pulling it around on the string and i quite often took it for a walk down the stairs into the kitchen much to my mums despair.
When Finn came along we got the Precious Planet Bouncer which he adored and he always giggled along to the animal sounds, we also borrowed a Rainforest Jumperoo and he went crazy every time he went into it and it did wonders for his sleep!
With Molly-May getting more mobile she wasn’t happy in her swing or bouncer anymore and got frustrated easily because after various rolls she ended up on the cold wooden floor and off her play mat.
But help was near and Fisher Price have offered to let us test their brand new and improved First Steps Jumperoo which is two great products in one—a jumper & a walker.
Here is what Fisher Price have to say about their new Toy:
Introducing a brand new way for baby to jump, walk and play! First, it’s a free-standing jumper, rewarding every bounce and move with music, lights and sounds. The seat spins 360° so your little one can see all around. The frame also extends to let baby walk back and forth, taking their first steps! The soft spring covers keep little fingers safe and the height is adjustable in 3 positions to grow with your baby.
What we thought about the new Fisher Price First Steps Jumperoo:
From the moment i was unpacking it she was drawn to the vibrant colours and once i put her inside the seat unit she immediately started to play with the red frog roller ball which since that moment has been her favourite by far!
I really like the netting’s either side because that means if she has a teething toy of hers and throws it around the net will prevent it from dropping down the floor which saves me the cleaning various times a day part!
It seems Molly-May is not a fan of any music unless its Daddy singing “Fields of athenry” so if its her Fisher Price Mobile, the swing or her new Jumperoo she prefers to make her own sounds to her bouncing. But the Jumperoo awards the baby when jumping up and down with some sounds which makes it certainly even more interesting to bounce around.
Another think i noticed is the little section which looks just like a tray (1st picture above) which would be perfect to hold a little snack if i remove the toy bar (which is so quick and simple to do)
Obviously with her only starting to get her strength up on her feet we haven’t tested the expendable legs to turn it into a walker function yet but i will keep you posted on that!
The only slight niggle i could find is that the new Jumperoo is rather on the large side, we are lucky enough even though we live in a flat to have a nice sized living room after making it open plan but for parents with a smaller flat space can be a issue.
I have taken a comparising picture after borrowing my neighbours son’s Jumperoo for this shot:
The First Steps Jumperoo is priced as a RRP of 124.99£ but you can get yours for only 93.79£ right now at Mothercare over here.
Well i thought i leave you with a little video of Molly-May and her exact thoughts on her new bouncy toy:
