Best simple bouncinette
We were given one of these for our first daughter 5 years ago and we used it ALOT for her, so easy to take the fabric off to give it a wash. The fabric did stretch alot as it was second hand and our first daughter was a huge baby. (She was in size 1 clothes by 6months)
We searched everywhere to buy it again for our second daughter and ended up getting a brand new one. She wasn't as keen on it as our first daughter, but I would still highly recommend it. (Our second daughter is super clingy and mobile, started crawling at 5months where our fir...st didn't crawl until 11months) Second time around we only got 3 months use out of it, but I'm still glad we got it. The metal frames are nice and thick. It feels sturdy unlike the ones in the target/kmart/big w etc, they feel thin and flimsy in comparison to this one.
Purchased in October 2018 for $47.00.
Ok but poorly made and limited use
You get what you pay for.
Pros: Once Bub sits in it she's happy and it seems to do the job. Seems safe as long as you don't move it with Bub still in it (see reason below).
It wasn't expensive either. Bought mine online for $40.
First impression is that it's not well made. The bouncer comes in a few parts, where the steel tubes/bars slide into each other.
Mine had rust on each end of the bars and the tubes don't firmly 'hold in place'. It comes apart unless you hold it carefully with two hands if you have to move it. Not great...
old tech is the best tech
33yrs ago i sat in one; my son & daughter adore theirs! lightweight easy clean airflow for summer padded for winter; encourages movement & the worst baby can do when old enough is stand up with the bouncer on their butt. no saftey issues whatsoever. simple and the best wouldnt be without one :)
Perfect in its simplicity.
We looked high and low to find this bouncinette because none of the plastic ones appealed. The frame is sturdy and lightweight, easy to transport. The mesh cover allows good airflow around baby which is great to prevent overheating, especially on hot summer days. The bouncinette allows plenty of movement for baby to kick, bounce and wave his arms safely. No mechanical swinging, no terrible pre-programmed music, nothing over the top which is perfect. Our little bub is happy to sit in it and watch the world around him while he kicks and flap...s and sucks on his toys. I have spoken to other mums who have found the standard swings/rockers to be restrictive when baby moves which can't be fun as babies love to move. I highly recommend this product. Simple design, inexpensive, sturdy, baby friendly.
Great Value - Baby loves it!
This was one of the best value items we have bought for our baby and he loves it. It folds up flat for when we go to mum and dad's place and our little fella loves spending time in it. We got a plush cover for ours as well. it came in a pretty nifty carry bag too - all the babyhood items we have bought have been pretty good value and great value.
Good value, good quality - baby loves it.
My son loves this!!
This bouncer is a great new product, based off an old idea. Although it is a very (dare I say) 80's design compared to some of the other products on the market today, we've found that our son absolutely loves it. We turn it around so he can put his feet on the lounge and kick himself back to make it bounce. It's very handy to be able to sit babies somewhere when they are unable to sit by themselves.
Very bouncey! Lightweight and easy to move around. Secure straps.
A bit low-tech considering what else is out there, but does the job
