We were recently asked if we would like to review the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Puppy’s Activity Jumperoo and I jumped at the chance as we’re big Fisher-Price fans! When the product arrived I was surprised at how compact it is yet how many toys there are on it; I love that there are activities all around the seat where Elsie sits as well as dangling from the arch above her head encouraging her to move and bounce. The free standing frame lets baby bounce safely and helps strengthen gross motor skills.
The seat Elsie sits in rotates 360 degrees to allow her to reach all of the toys. One of her favourite things to do is reach up and grab the toys which dangle above her. She likes to chew on these especially as she is teething. There is also chew toy located on the activity ring which is great for teething as it’s made from a hard material to help relieve little gums.
The jumperoo can be used in Musical Fun mode where baby can discover lights and sounds as they move and play or they can learn songs, animal sounds and first words in English, Russian, Spanish and Italian in the Early Learning mode. Elsie loves to have the sounds turned on – especially the animal sounds and songs.
Although Elsie is ten months old and on the cusp of walking she still loves to be in the jumperoo and it also provides a safe place for me to place her whilst I tidy the room or relax with a cuppa (yeh right)! The jumperoo can be used from when baby can support their own head until they weigh 12kg. Elsie is just over 10kg so we still have plenty of time to make use of it. Thank goodness! There are also three height settings so the jumperoo grows as your baby does. We’re currently on the second setting so as Elsie gets a little taller we can still make use of the jumperoo.
I’ve never used a jumperoo with my previous children, purely due to space constraints and finances, however I would highly recommend making the investment early on as we used Elsie’s daily from when she was around four months old. It allowed me to have my hands back as well as help her own development. It was lovely to hear her giggling as she played.
