We bought this bouncer in the asda baby event in 2010 whilst pregnant with our first daughter. I was attracted to the pretty pink design and the price as we were on a tight budget. We paid £15 for it and it was also available in a blue safari design for a boy. For £15 it was an absolute bargain and it served us well.
The bouncer comes flat packed in a box and takes some minimal assembly. It was fairly easy to assemble the hardest part is stretching the fabric seat over the metal frame, that part takes some patience! Its also quite a tight fit to get the box that vibrates into the slot under the seat but at least its all secure once its done.
The metal frame is white and fairly sturdy. It has two rubber feet on the front and back to stop any slippage on the floor which is good. The frame is a 'z' shape to allow the bouncer to bounce which it does easily. If you don't feel like sitting there bouncing it for baby you can switch on the vibrations which slowly vibrate the seat unit for you, my newborn loved this option and it always helped to soothe her. The vibration unit runs on aa batteries.
The seat has a safety harness which clicks in on either side and goes between baby's legs. In my opinion the harness could do with being slightly smaller as it drowned my 7lb 8oz newborn baby and went right up to her chin. The seat is a nice deep cradlr shape though so baby still looks nice and snuggly almost likes it hugging them.
Over the seat is a padded play bar with 2 dangly toys. We never really used this part until my daughter was older as the toys hung too long and would hit her face, we had to wait until she was heavy enough to push the seat farther down from the bar. Once she was big enough she loved the mirror and the rattle they would easily keep her entertained for a while. The bar easily clicks on and off to allow easy access to little one.
The seat is made from an easily wipeable material which came in real handy for when we started weaning and used the seat, it got messy! All baby items should be wipeable.
Overall it was a bargain buy and a pretty good one. There are a few flaws and I think the seat could be more padded but if you are after something cheap and cheerful or a spare for grandmas house this is ideal.
