We bought this fun-rock when my now 2 year old was a tiny baby, quite a while ago for a toy and boy did he love it! but it's still going strong and my little girl is just about raking up the benefits of it now. The age suitability is 6months and above but my little girl who is 5months is fine in it, my little boy roughly the same age when he first started using it. I think so long as the baby is fully holding his/her head and supporting their own body relatively well then they can go in it for short supervised periods of time.
My inital reason for buying this was the fact that it had loads of toys to amuse the baby situated within easy reach, quite similar to a baby walker but without the wheels! at the time we didn't have much room for a baby walker to be driven around my lounge and I had heard of accidents with baby walkers anyway so I chose one of these.
Right, down the the nitty gritty!
The main body of this fun-rock is fully detachable for storeage or cleaning, with only the seat cover machine washable at 40o. Everything is very easy to put together or apart! and the legs are height adjustable depending on the age/height of your baby...
The toys surrounding the seat unit are as follows:-
Car Steering wheel with horn, mirror, phone, rattle and 3 musical keys - this part is removable leaving an empty spot with ridges for lunch and or a drink while still keeping baby happily playing!
A globe like squeaker which when hit provides many a happy giggle!!
A wobbly teether *I say wobbly as it is on a sort of stem for baby to have easy reach from hand to mouth!*
2 different coloured 'peek-a-boo' teddies! These are pushed up by baby to reveal 2 very cute teddy faces.
An arch with 3 different coloured large beads for alternating from side to side, I've found this in particular is amazing for making any baby proud of his/herself when they finally manage to knock one bead fro
m one side to the other!
And last but not least...4 different coloured heart shaped clic-klaks for throwing side to side and making as much noise as possible!
All these toys are easily accessible by the centre seat which revolves, the base of the 'rock' is ridged for baby's feet to grip and turn to find the specific toy that baby is interested in right then! It is called the funrock and yep it does rock whichever way your baby decides to lean but when their still tiny this always frightens me, I'm almost 100% sure that they could never topple over but I always tend to have the small pegs into the 'down' position which means that it stays static and although your baby can still turn, play, move just as much you just don't have the wobble effect!
I have definitely found that this is great for a baby that likes being carried everywhere, the way it is designed it will keep any baby entertained, plenty toys and a perfect view of everything in the process!
This was £69.99 when we bought it 2 years ago but I think it has come down a bit since then and I would definitely recommend one of these to anyone!!
