The First Years Tigger Door Bouncer
Advantages: Cute, fun, tires out babies and my son loved it. Safe and study to use.
Disadvantages: He had to outgrow it sometime!
When I was younger I'm told I loved my door bouncer as a baby. I used to sit and bounce in it daily and used to get ever so excited (apparently!) when it was brought out! Knowing I loved it so much, my father thought that it might be genetic and bought my little boy a Tigger Door Bouncer when he was very young to play on. He paid £18 for the bouncer from a supermarket, which I believe was on offer at the time. For that amount, and the amount of enjoyment my son had out of it, I think it was well worth what my dad paid.
The bouncer consists of a harness which is decorated with the face of Tigger which I think is very cute, and has an orange and black tiger stripe pattern. Attached to this are some tough elasticated bouncy straps, which are blue in colour. The orange and blue colours are suitable for boys and girls, as the blue is a very pale colour, so this was good as it meant I could reuse the bouncer later when my daughter was very young too.
The Tigger Door Bouncer is attached to the top of the door frame by clipping the hook clamps to the door's frame. The bouncer comes with full instructions for fitting, as they are clearer than my description! Either way, once the bouncer is attached to the door, it's very secure and a hard solid tug will not shift the bouncer.
The bouncer is designed for babies up to 25lbs in weight and over 3 months old, and as my son was well under that weight, and around 5 months at that time, he was of a great weight to try this out.
When we first put him in the bouncer, with his legs through each one of the holes in what is basically a bouncing pair of pants, he didn't really have much of a clue what to do at first. After bobbing him up and down a little bit though, he eventually figured out that bending his legs would power him to bounce up and down. As soon as he figured this out, he bounced up and down constantly for half an hour, giggled solidly for most of it and completely tired himself out. Getting him out of the bouncer was not a problem for me either.
The supports around his legs on the bouncer were nice and soft and didn't dig into his legs at all, meaning he had a comfortable bouncing experience, which he always thoroughly enjoyed.
I'm not sure how many months it was before he was too big for it, but after a while, I noticed that the belt didn't come as high up his waist as it used to, and he was bouncing a bit too vigorously by that point. It was then I'd decided he'd outgrown his much loved Tigger bouncer.
Summary: A sturdy, secure Tigger bouncer for kids over 3 months and under 25lbs.
