When my daughter was little, all my 'mum friends' purchased the Rainforest Jumperoo. Sadly, we didn't have the space so opted for a space saving version which was okay and kept my daughter suficiently entertained for short amounts of time. When pregnant with my son, we had a lot more space available so I picked up one of these second hand knowing how good they were.
The jumperoo came dismantled (as if new) and was placed in the attic until needed. Constructing the jumperoo was easy. The instructions are clear and easy to read and there aren't too many parts to fix together. The whole process took between 10-15 minutes.
The seat unit is fixed by a bungee rope to three poles situated in a circle. As your baby grows, you can move the rope up to bring his/her feet further from the ground. These stages are numbered from 1-3. The circular base can be compacted by pressing a button which releases a catch and enables you to fold in the jumperoo slightly for storage. It doesn't go a long way - but good if you want to pack in (a rather large!!) car for a weekend away or place under the stairs when not in use. This is the only really big disadvantage - it is very large and takes up a lot of space.
The first thing I noticed was that the fabric chair is removable to wash. Particularly useful if baby is sick/dribbles or nappy leaks! I've washed the seat several times now and its really easy to remove and washes well. Most of the various activities also come away from their bases as well if you need to clean which is helpful!
There are various activities situated around the jumperoo. The seat swizzles 360 degrees so your baby can move around at their own pace as they get older. At the front is an elephant, parrot and monkey - each animal can be interacted with differently. There is also a spinning rattle wheel, lights and sounds, etc. Lots to keep baby amused!
The RRP for the jumperoo is around £114 currently - but can often be found on sale at around £70. With this price in mind, I suggest its well worth the investment! My son has just started to use this at 4 1/2 months old. His feet just touch the ground and he's just learning to push his legs to move. He's fascinated by the lights and sounds and is already starting to play with the various activites. I feel we'll get a lot of use out of it.
I had very high expectations of this after doing lots of research and reading the reviews. The price did have me pondering for some time as it's an expensive baby toy needed at a time when parents are weighed down with many other costs. Fortunately I didn't need to worry too much about the cost as it was bought for a gift. Just to note on the price though you can often pick this item up on special offer making more affordable.
The set up was very easy, the base clips together to form a circle and the seat is suspended on 3 poles and clips into the base. There are 3 activity stations that surround the seat as well as little animals that dangle from the poles. Three height settings help to accommodate growing baby. My little girl was able to use this from about 3 months old. Baby must have good head control before using the jumperoo. The seat can twist 360 degrees while the suspension allows baby to safely jump and bounce. This bouncing action is particularly good for strengthening a babies legs in preparation for movement.
Positives-the functionality of the jumperoo is perfect for a developing baby. The joy in their faces when they first discover the ability to bounce is priceless. They will also enjoy the independence of gaining a whole new perspective without the help of mum or dad. The activities will keep them occupied and happy for some time. When fitted with batteries the jumperoo is accompanied by lots of fun sounds and lights-again another winner for the little one.
Negatives-price is a concern, not necessarily because we didn't have the money to spend but as someone who likes to get value for money this was a considered purchase. On this subject the jumperoo seems robust enough to last to be handed down for future siblings. The space needed for one of these should be considered, the circular base when put together is 80cm wide. We have a playroom so don't mind having this permanently put together but whilst it was in our lounge it was a bit of an obstacle. You could of course dismantle and store but again you would need a considerable sized cupboard to store the pieces. We have packed this in the car to take to grandmas but it's not something we would take every time as it was quite bulky in the boot. Personally I haven't found that this entertains my child as much as I expected. Yes she will enjoy regular time in here but soon becomes bored with the activities and seems to prefer being on her play mat with her toys.
Overall- a mixed response from me, it certainly has it's use utmost entirely convinced that it warrants a full retail price of £100.
My brother bought this for my niece from Argos for £124.99 with my recommendation. I have since found the same product on amazon for about £85.
This 2 in 1 jumper and walker adjusts in height as your baby grows and also turns in a full circle so your baby never misses a thing.
It works as a free standing jumper, which plays music and lights up with every bounce, guaranteeing your baby hours of fun and rewards for development. It also encourages your baby to take their first steps with its extendable frame.
My niece loves the 'bat at birdie' toy. This seems to occupy her for hours. The colourful and entertaining toys also include a lion mirror, frog rollers and a butterfly themed abacus bar.
The great thing about this product is that it comes apart really easily, so it is ideal to clean and store. The seat pad is machine washable for your convenience.
Even though it is easy to take apart, the stand is incredibly sturdy, guaranteeing safety.
Another great product by Fisher Price that is perfect for new parents.
I babysit my niece twice a week, for the past 5 months and this has brought hours of fun. Well worth the price, but if you can get it cheaper, even better.
Fisher price have brought out this amazing jumperoo toy suitable for babies from approx 5 months old and it's great!
The jumperoo is quite like an indoor bouncer but within an activity station so your baby can jump and also play with toys at the same time.
The rain forest one is designed to look like a rainforest. It has parrots and monkeys and elephants (not too sure that you can find elephants in the rain forest though!) and frogs all around. It has flashing lights, rattles, bendy toys, flying toys, toys which jump up and toys that can be spun around.
The baby sits in the middle of the activity station with their legs dangling down touching the floor. When pushing on the floor the jumper bounces them like with an indoor bouncer.
All around the baby are the activities which help to get you rbaby interested in the different toys and also encourages them to move around as the seat turns a full 360 degrees which is good!
The toys include:
A lizard which spins and has a rattle inside it.
A dragonfly which is on a bendy wand so the baby can grab it.
A jungle section with animals hanging down that spin.
Bugs that light up and flash.
A rattle which rolls around.
A wheel with bright colours which can be spun
A sunshine rattle which rolls around.
A tiger which hides behind a bush and pops up when a button is pressed
A parot and a frog hanging from above.
All of these toys encourage babies to explore and play.
The toy of course makes a noise! you either get rainforest noises or music and there is a volume control either loud or soft although I wouldn't say that it's ever particularly quiet!
The more the baby moves the more music/noises it makes so it encourages the baby to play.
It's easy to assemble although the instructions aren't too easy to follow but we managed to get it together within 15 minutes.
It is very large and bulky and so not really a great space saver! We don't have a big house and this jumperoo seems to dominate the lounge now but it's worth it because our baby loves it!
It is ideal for babies who are able to sit up on their own and for mummies and daddies who want to encourage their babies to play on their own without needing their constant input.
It is expensive at £80 from Mothercare and Toys r Us.
It is wipe clean as everything is plastic but there are so many bits that it'll be hard to get completely clean and get in all the bits. The seat is made from fabric and that can clip off and be put in the washing machine but i'm not sure on how easily it will then clip back on afterwards.
I think it's a great toy as it's so bright and noisy and a great variety of choice for your babies to play with. It is noisy! But then again this just seems to stimulate more play so is good! I like that it is bright colours too and not just the usual blue or pink range that toys tend to come in
I definitely recommend it if you can afford it!
Having lived in a small flat when my eldest was a baby a jumperoo was out of the question spacewise. Now we are in a house and the fact the jumperoo was on sale I jumped at the chance to get one for my youngest (desperately needed to save my arms while she wanted to stand up all day long)
I found it very easy to out together, I managed to do it on my own with both kids surrounding me. The circular base clicks together, you click in the three uprights, attach the seat and then pop in all the little toys around the seat.
We started using this when my little girl was four months old and could confidently hold upo her head. She instantly loved in and got the hang of bouncing away quickly. She liked looking at the two hanging toys above her head and tried to grab them. (The two hanging down toys do adjust up and down to suit the height of the child)
There are three toy sections on the seat unit. A spinning ball, a spoinninf bnall with a pop up part and the musical, light section. There is also a toy that hangs from the seat unit that they can move around (on a flexible plastic lead) which she particularly enjoys munching on to soothe her gums.
The chair seems very comfortable and she can spend ages in there, falling asleep in it many times. The seat heigh is adjustable with three different settings, she is still on the lowest although could do with moving to the middle height now.
It seems very sturdy, I can confidently pop her in it and quickly pop into the next room to grab something. Now she is confidently able to stand she really goes for it on the jumping and it is very sturdy.
The music has two settings, one plays constantly and the other just when they move (which is most of the time) as an adult the music does get a bit annoying as it is so repetitive but it does have a quieter mode which helps a little.
For the price I got this for £41.99 I think it is a great piece of equipment to free me up to play with my toddler while the baby is entertained and also to help develop her strength, hand coordination (grabbing at all the toys she wants, spinning, pulling etc) and is also very stimulating with the toys and lovely bright colours.
It is quite large, we are lucky to have a largeish living room so it doesn't take up too mm such space for us but if you are limited on space you may want to think of other options.
After months of waiting patiently for my little girl to learn to crawl the big moment finally arrived and i was overwhelmed with pride. However i suddenly became very aware of everything in my house. Nothing was baby proof and i was completely on edge watching my little one scuttle about to everything she shouldn't sockets and breakables were everywhere and the more we said 'no' the more she wanted to get to them.
My husband found the solution on Amazon priced at a rather steep £80. At this point we were desperate and even though the price seemed steep we paid as the product reviews were encouraging. Delivery was fast and the item arrived two days after ordering.
The jumperro was easy to assemble, eye catching and provided my little girl with lights, sounds and items to interact with. It has three height settings that can be adjusted as your child grows and develops. I can't sing the jumperoos praises enough. It offers peace of mind that your child is in a safe place whilst you potter about cleaning. All the toys are safe for them to play with and it gives them the freedom to start using the all important muscles they will need in the next stage of development. However it is important to remember that the jumperoo is designed for babies that are able to hold there heads up.
Each section of the jumperoo was safe and easy to use and even though she was unsure at first once she got used to it my little one really started to enjoy herself. To begin with she couldn't reach the floor at all. However we popped a cushion under her feet and she was soon well away bouncing. I also felt that there was a little to much wriggle room in the seat so for the first few weeks i placed a blanket around her to provide extra support for her whilst so got used to her new found freedom.
The jumperoo has soft detachable animals that hang down over the top of the child. The monkey proved a big hit and even though she has outgrown the product the monkey is still in the toy box for more play.
As much as i love the jumperoo, for its ease and peace of mind it does have a few negatives. The first negative is probably more down to personal choice. We allowed our little girl to have the odd snack in her jumperoo. It is rather tricky to clean in certain places due to its shape. I expect most people probably wouldn't feed their child in the product but due to not having a dining room table we found this a bit of a god send at meal times.Also even though the seat is washable i found it almost impossible to detach in order to clean it. However a few wipes with a damp cloth did tend to work just as well.
The other slight disadvantage is that it was slightly bigger than we expected but a bit of furniture shuffling soon rectified this. Our house is rather small and having a large amount of baby products scattered everywhere probably didn't help in this.
In conclusion i would recommend the product 100% its brilliant for young babies in early development. Offering mums and dads a few minutes respite to nip to the toilet of load the dishwasher. A brilliant item and even its down points are personal to myself and family so may not effect all.
We bought our latest addition a jumparoo when he was around 4-5 months old and he used it for around 6 months maybe - most children could possibly use it for longer but my son has a habit of climbing out of everything - maybe straps or restraints would be a beneficial add on for this activity?
Baby would be happy and contented in this for as long as I'd leave him in it, which would be no more than an hour a day unless he'd bounced himself to sleep which he tended to do a lot! It's a fantastic activity toy which we got as an alternative for a door bouncer. It's perfectly safe where as my feelings are door bouncers are not particularly.
My critisism with the jumparoo is that it is so bulky! There's no simple way to fold it down when not in use so you do need to take into account you need a large space for it. Ours ended up in the garden after a couple of months and has now unfortunately become is an un useable condition which is a shame but living in a small house with no storage space there was little other option.
I think the price is incredibly expensive but it can be found on numerous second hand websites for a fraction of this.
I could find no way to strip the material to wash so was constantly scrubbing it which over time ded fade the fabric slightly and there was some stains which you just cannot get out without using a washing machine.
Good points - baby adored this so money well spent
Bad points - big and bulky, can't store well
First and foremost let me say that for any new parent, baby toys are a minefield..and an expensive minefield at that. You have bouncers, rockers, activity mats, walkers, activity tables and so on and so on! So I used Dooyoo to help me decide what I really needed for my little boy and what would be worth spending my limited Maternity Pay on! One item that I kept coming across was the Jumperoo. At first I dismissed it with its £140 price tag but after doing a little research and reading plenty of reviews I noticed how a lot of parents praised it beyond belief. So when I saw the Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo reduced at Argos to £105 I decided to buy it,
The FP Rainforest Jumperoo is a bouncing activity centre for children from 6 months of age up to around 12 months. The general price tag is normally between £110 and £140 depending on offers and different shops. The Jumperoo comes in a large plain looking cardboard box which is slightly disappointing as you expect something colourful and enticing. However it is just packaging at the end of the day. Inside you get the item dismantled ready for home assembly. You receive decent instructions to assemble the item although it is easy to go wrong so I'd recommend really taking your time. My seat somehow ended up upside down at one point.
The Jumperoo consists of the metal circular frame, the seat base and seat cover, three activity pods and two hanging toys. The Jumperoo assembles with satisfying clicks and feels pretty strong when all made up. It is bold, colourful and a feast for the eyes of a baby.
Once assembled the child is placed into the seat and can manoeuvre around 360* to access all parts of the station. At the front is a light up and musical pod which allows the child to play with the animal by twisting, turning and pulling them and a small barrel that spins to select different jungle animal sounds. Next to this is spinning pod that holds lots of little balls that rattle as it moves and the third pod has a spinning sun and a pop up tiger. Above the seat hangs a tree frog and a bird to encourage the child to jump up and reach them. The seat base hangs on flexible springs which allow the child to jump and the seat turns all the way round.
The Jumperoo has three height settings. Plays to sets of music and sounds and has two volume settings
My son loved this and as soon as he got to nearly 6 months he was always in it. We wound that within a week of him using it his core strength seemed to have improved, as did his balance. The Jumperoo is designed to help develop both small and large motors skills and in our opinion really works a treat. Our son also developed in his hand eye coordination quicker once he had started using the Jumperoo and although may not be solely responsible for these improvements it definitely helped!
As the Jumperoo is stable and contained I could also leave him in there while I did a few chores as I knew he was safe and sound in it. They cannot get out of it and it is very safe to use and we'll made. It provides many hours of entertainment for little ones and I really couldn't do without it having quite a energetic young boy! At 8 months old our son still goes in the Jumperoo every day and his face lights up when we pull it out for him. In our opinion it really is worth it's weight in gold,
There are a few downsides to the item though as we'll and as much as we love it there are a few things that could be improved. Firstly the price, it is very expensive when you thing of all the other items you have to buy for a new baby. And even second hand ones were still going for £50-60 we noticed (although that does mean you can sell them after they've outgrown them and get a decent wedge back). Secondly, the size. It is a big old beast and takes up a lot of room both in width and height so you need some space. And as is doesn't dissemble very easily you can't take it down and put it back up when you want it out. And lastly the seat itself is awkward to pop your child in. You have to thread their legs through the leg holes and we found this difficult if your on your own and takes a lot of manoeuvring which isn't great for your child.
I think with a few tweaks to the design this item would be absolutely perfect but for how much entertainment our son has out of it and how helpful it's been to improve his motor skills and free up a little time for me I wouldn't do without it.
This toy is quite pricey I have to say. But we bought it when our daughter was four months old supposedly for her first Christmas (6 months). Our little girl was quite strong though so we decided to give it to her at four months. She really loved it, there was no issues about support at all but because she was still not heavy enough even at the lowest setting, we had put a cushion on the floor so she can bounce herself on it. I do no recommend you do put your four months old on it though unless you are sure that their neck support is great. Remember individual babies are different.
This has kept our baby well-entertained. It is basically a bouncing activity centre, so many different toys and every move is rewarded with a tune. Once she figured out to turn herself around, there was no stopping her. It was great to be able to leave her while I check on the kitchen or just hang the washing out.
It also helped out baby with her coordination, help her learn cause and effect too. Once she was able to move though, she no longer wanted to be on it.
Another plus is that it has a good resale value after you no longer need it!
I would say this is the best baby entertainer type toy by far. My LO was fairly sturdy and went in it from about 4/5 months. I could finally get little jobs done round the house while she bounced. Its not too heavy (but a bit bulky) and I would move it from room to room as I cleared up. I got a good 20 mins out of it at a time. When I first put her in it, her feet didn't touch the floor, so I put some big books underneath so her legs weren't dangling. It has lasted well, got alot of use from the first baby, and still looks like new.
I know it is a bit more expensive than the average baby entertainer, but it does seem to keep them entertained for alot longer and when your finished with it, it holds its price well and you can get at least half of your money back selling it on.
When my daughter was 5 months old , everyone I knew who had a baby her age seemed to have a jumperoo for their child. I was unsure about them as they were a lot of money. After all she already had a door bouncer, did she really need a jumpero?! YES she did! One of the best purchases I ever made!
WHAT IS IT?
A jumperoo is a toy / piece of baby equipment. It is a big frame with a kind of circular seat hanging in the middle that baby sits in and can then bounce and jump because the seat is supported by strips of elastic. Imagine a baby door bouncer that comes with a frame so it is free standing so it obviously doesn't need a door.
So there are a few versions out there, this one is the rain forest jumperoo. It is brightly coloured and has rain forest themed toys all around it. The plastic seat in the middle is fabric covered and cushioned so it is comfortable for baby to sit it.
The good thing about the fabric covered seat is that the fabric is removable and machine washable (always a plus with a baby!!)
It has 3 different height settings so when baby is still little the lowest setting can be used so they can reach the floor. As soon as they can reach the floor baby can start to jump! The seat has elastic ropes to support it and make it bouncy.
The jumperoo can be used from when baby can hold their head up properly and support themselves while sitting up. My daughter got this when she was 5 months and went in it straight away and we got it out again when my son was just over 4 months. Both loved it!! As baby stands and bounces but is still supported I think it helps to strengthen their legs. Both my kids loved being in their jumperoos and were both early walkers, 10 months and 8 months!
The seat rotates! This is amazing as baby learns to do it themselves. As there are toys all around, baby can turn the seat when they want to play with something else or when something else catches their eye and stops them getting bored too quickly.
Ok so the first thing I would mention is that it is very big!! You need quite a big area for the jumperoo, it is very large!
Also as it's circular you can't just tuck it in a corner somewhere so you need to make sure you have enough room for one before you go out and buy one.
The other thing is that they are quite expensive! When my daughter was little these were still quite the 'new thing' and ours cost us £80! To me though, ours got used and played with so much it was well worth the money. Two kids got use out of ours and both wanted to be in it all the time. They also sell on quite well if kept in good condition and I have recently sold ours on for £35.
HOW MUCH NOW?
3 and a half years on from when I first bought mine, they are still selling for, depending on which style / theme you go for, between £60 and £80 new. They are widely available at most larger baby stores like mothercare or kiddicare and of course amazon and argos kind of shops.
Would I recommend? Yes I would. Although pricey, the enjoyment my children have had out of it makes it a bargain! I know so many other mum's have said the same.
As long as you have the room for it I would say go for it! Your baby will love it!!
5/5 stars from me! Thank you for reading, I hope it was useful!

After hearing lots of positive comments about the jumperoo we decided to purchase this for our 5 month old daughter. Although initially she was too small in length for the Jumperoo we found that by using a cushion underneath she was still able to use it without any difficulties. Although it can be quite expensive i would highly recommend purchasing this product or one of the different models as it not only provides a fun entertaining activity for baby but also provides a safe haven for baby whilst you spend 5 minutes or so doing something around the house.
The jumperoo itself appears to be very simple to set up and full instructions are provided, although should say it took my husband some time to work how to assemble it together, I put this down to him being rubbish at DIY and not an issue with the product. Once set up the jumperoo does take up quite alot of space and really for effective use does need to stay erect, it really wouldn't be time efficient to take it apart after every use.
When our daughter first saw the jumperoo her eyes light up and it is easy to see why, through the bright coloured jungle theme, catchy music and hanging sensory toys its enough to entertain most babies even if only for a short period of time. Our little girl loved it instantly and was able to bouce up and down (Through use of the cushion) very securely. The extra activities around the jumperoo helped to develop her hand and eye coordination and very soon she was also able to spin herself around 360 to see all the things surrounding her. The 3 height settings also allow you to adapt the jumperoo as the child grows.
I would like to point out though that as much as i am a fan of this product i do now question how much value for money it truly was as my daughter very quickly grew out of this as she began to walk from 10 months. I know this is not the case for all children but for me the cost of the product was alot for the length of time we actually managed to use it for.
I do still recommend this product but definitely shop around before purchasing it, quite often there are good deals on Amazon or Mothercare.
we got this for our son when he was five months old and I can honestly say this was the best purchase I ever made for him.
he absabsolutely loved the jumparoo and we got just as much joy watching him playing in this. its really well designed for the little ones with the nice bright colours plenty of features to keep them entertained. I really like the fact the seat rotates all the way round and thwy can easily move round the toys but it was the jumping he loved the most there was times he actually stared nodding off in the jumparoo it was a fantastic way to burn of his energy. we used this u till he was just shy of a year old and stared walking we gave it to my cousin whos sons loved it as much as mine did. if I ever was to have another baby I would definitely buy another one its a must have fantastic product
I bought this for my sons first Christmas, at four months old, he didn't really need anything but thought it would be a great investment for the future! Best decision I could have made! At one point it was the only thing that would entertain him so I could go to the bathroom, hoover etc! When he first started using it he couldn't turn the seat round (seems quite stiff when new) so only played with the front toys but once he figured it out he loved it even more! I think he loved that he had more mobility. It took him quite a while to lean how to jump regardless of us showing him, I now have videos of his crazy jumping! One of the things I loved was that you can fold it up a bit when not in use (button on one of the green 'feet' unlocks the bar so you can make the circle smaller) I found this great for when he got older and had other larger toys, gained more room for crawling!! Even when I pulled this out of the cupboard to sell it on my son wanted a shot in it!
I bought this for my daughters first Christmas when she was 4 months old. I had heard so many good things about this toy that despite the high price tag I decided to get one. I shopped around and got one in offer in boots for £65 which I was delighted with, and even more delighted when I sold it on 8 months later for £60.
The jumperoo has 3 different height settings so it grows with your child. When my daughter first started using it on the lowest height setting at 4 months her feet didn't quite reach the floor so I out a cushion under the jumperoo and she bounced her feet off that. She loved the jumperoo from first use, it didn't take her long to work out how to bounce and once she did there was no stopping her. It was a great way to get her burn off energy and it enabled me to do a few things around the house or have some lunch in peace knowing she was completely safe and couldn't go anywhere.
The hanging toys are great for developing their hand eye coordination and my daughter lived trying to grab them as they bounce. The seat itself rotates round but even though my daughter knew this and could do it she didn't seem to like thus function. The seat unit cover can be easily removed to be washed which is something you will end up doing a few times as a few jumps in the jumperoo can lead to quite spectator pooey nappies lol
Overall I have nothing negative to say about this product. The initial cost may seem high but my daughter used them daily from4 to 11 months old and loved spending time in it every day and to me that was priceless.
