This has got to be the most amazing and worthwhile invention that every child must have.
I will start by telling you that this is rarther expensive. We payed £80 from toys r us this christmas for my daughter who is 5 months old. The only reason that I bought it was for me to see how it worked and how good it was and it is absolutely amazing.
This came in a big box which was quite heavy to carry so if you are not driving I would have it delivered, because it was a christmas presant it was kept in our bedroom for 2 months and that was mainly because we thought it would take so long to set up.
When we opened the box all the pieces were wrapped in plastic to protect them and there seemed to be minimal pieces to put together. All the pieces slotted together the only time you needed to use a screw driver was to put the batteries in the activity tray. It has a large metal circle that has 3 green feet on them which have 3 metal curved bars that go up in the air with blue balls on the ends of them which toys attach to above the childs head. There is a white activity tray that is in the middle of the side bars that is attached to the side bars with strong pieces of elastic that is coved in brightly coloured orange fabric. Their is an activity tray that clips on the front of the tray which has 6 different toys on it a lion, a carosel, a red flashing duck, a blue crocodile, a purple flashing hipo and a ball that spins around. There is a handle that attaches from the carosel and the ball so that when it it attached the child can carry it around with them to play with. This part also has the volume button on the front which is settings off, volume level 1 and volume level 2.
The seat that is in the middle of the play tray is attached by hooks underneath to keep it secure. This is brightly coloured around the edges and has a big chimps face where the head rest is. You dont see this design when the child is in it but really gives it a good luck when it is not being used. The chair in the middle also spins round 360 degrees so the activity tray has other toys going all around you have a spinning dile with pictures of animals on, a purple activity tray with a handle that has a wobbly whale and a fish that spins round, there is a spinning tube that has little plastic balls in it and a floppy plant that has a green floppy stalk and a purple grapes shape on the end. The child when old enough can push themselves around in a circle without moving around the room to play with all the toys and if it is placed in the centre of the room it gives them the freedom to look around the room at other people or objects. This is also good if you have other children because they are safe from the ones that run around and could hurt the baby.
One the blue balls on the top of the side bars green leaves made from material slot in the top of them and have soft toys dangling from them but this is only on the two at the front there is a bird on one side and a banana on the other.
The music plays when the child is placed inside the chair and makes movement to the tray such as bouncing and swaying. My daughter is only 5 months old and can sit in the chair unaided because there is alot of support on the chair and her toes touch the floor and within a week of christmas she has learnt to bounce in it which is wonderful to watch she has a big smile on her face and giggles uncontrolably. I have also noticed that my other children are amused by it too because they bounce along with her jumping infront of her and making her laugh more.
The elastic pieces that hold the chair in place and make it bounce have 3 different levels for the different growth ages. So as your child gets taller you can higher the activity chair so they are able to bounce in it. Your child has to be able to sit almost unaided to use this but my daughter has not had much problem sitting in this because of the support. Their is also a limit to weight and height which means they will need to come out of it but I would say that this will be when my daughter is about 10 months old so she will get some use out of it and I have already got someone who will be buying it from me when my daughter has grown out of it. Unfortunatley I can not tell you what the weight or height restrictions are due to I have threw the box away and have lost the instructions which is not hard in our house.
This has been the best investment in my house and is worth the money if you are going to be using it with more than one child. I am a bit dissapointed with the fact that you are not able to take it places with you because you would have to take it apart to take it places. My daughter gets alot of enjoyment out of this and I am very glad that I bought her this.
Summary: the most amizing toy for a baby but expensive
