“ Brand: Hauck / Type: Bouncers „
This is the bouncer I have for my daughter. People may have noticed I like a bargain in previous reviews and this was on Ebay along with the matching playmat for £10 starting price. It was local to me so passed a few messages back and forth with the seller and found out not only did she live on the outskirts of my city but she lives in the same close as me, what are the changes of that lol. Anyway she said she would put it on buy it now for £40 and drop it to me that same day, I said I'd bid and see what happens as maybe someone would pay more for the pair. I had the last laugh as final selling price stayed at £10, bargain. I did feel slightly bad though that she was disappointed but that is ebay life.
Now on with the review, the colour as seen above is navy blue which I felt was suitable for a girl or boy. It has a picture of Tigger and Winnie the Pooh on the back. There is a safety strap which is padded so baby is strapped in safely whilst in it else they could easily fall to the side and fall out.
There is a play bar which goes from side to side and on it hang piglet, Winnie and Tigger. They swing as the bouncer moves. My daughter takes interest in everything now and loves watching these and I also have a disney cot mobile with the same characters hanging.
The entire bouncer seat is nicely padded making it comfortable for babies whilst in it. The material is just cotton and can be taken apart to be washed with a bit of fiddling about. There is also two large carry straps to move it about but these should not be used whilst the baby is in it.
Bouncing Tigger- The base of the bouncer has stoppers on it so they can be flipped over to stop the bouncer from moving, not sure in what instant you would not want it to move though as surely that is the general point of it. When it is in bounce mode you can gently tap your foot on it to keep it moving.
To be honest with you all I'm not overly keen on this bouncer. My son had one that vibrated and played relaxing sounds so I didn't need to use my foot on it like this one to keep him entertained. My daughter is quite happy sat in it for small periods of time without the need to bounce her.
These retail at full price at £35-£40 so I can't grumble too much at paying what I did as the play mat alone is worth that.
This will get a 3 star rating from me which I think is the lowest I've ever given.
After my dislike of the last Winnie The Pooh baby bouncer (my review on it tells all) my husband and I decided to purchase this one which is made by Hauck.
Following on with my typical Winnie The Pooh theme for my daughter, this boucner was navy blue and light blue in patches (okay, not very girly but she liked it!) with an activity bar across it with 3 dangling soft toys which are Pooh bear, Tigger and Piglet (the lack of Eeyore really grates on my nerves. it really does). The bouncer sits on curved legs which have little stoppers on them which you can put on if you don't want your baby to bounce. It also has a carry strap for transportation.
The actual seat of the bouncer is very padded and looks quite comfy. The head rest part has a picture of Winnie The Pooh and Tigger bouncing which is quite appropriate. On the seat is a little padded harness which looks like the front of a nappy for you to sit your baby in so that they are nice and secure in the bouncer. I really was impressed at the fact that this was padded as there is no way that the harness can cut into your baby's legs whilst they are bouncing.
I love the way that this isn't just a bouncer as in it has a little activity bar for your child to look at and play with as well. My daughter was always reaching for the soft toys and used to squeal with delight when they bounced with her.
When the stoppers were not on the legs of the bouncer, it bounced very nicely. Not too fiercely, just right. The bouncer is very sturdy and I could never see any way for it to topple over with my duaghter in it though she was never left unattended whilst she was in it. Sometimes we would bounce her and as she got older, she would bounce herself by kicking her legs.
This bouncer does not have to be put together. It is already done for you. All you have to do is get it out of the box. The bouncer was purchased from a catalogue but I cannot remember which one but it was fairly expensive at £40. it was worth every penny, especially considering the disaster the other bouncer we had was.
