Bumbo Play Tray
Advantages: Good for adding toys or a drink to
Disadvantages: Not secure
I bought the Bumbo play tray to use with my Bumbo baby sitter just before my daughter learnt how to throw herself out the chair itself. I though that using the tray would keep her more secure and stop her falling out head first, but it didnt.
The top of the tray slots onto the centre pillar of the Bumbo between the babies legs but the way the bottom is secured is not very secure in my opinion. There is a 2 cm flat piece of plastic which is designed to go under the bumbo to keep it tight and in place, but because the Bumbo itself is squidgy, it isnt very easy to push underneath with one hand and I found that I had to lean the Bumbo backwards a little and use two hands to push it under, which I didnt like doing with my baby inside!
Due to my little girl throwing herself out regardless of the tray or not, they were both put away and had I of written a reveiw back then, I would of said they were short lived. However, my daughter at 13 months, now has most of her meals in her Bumbo and lifts her arms for me to attach the tray then bangs her hands down, so I guess she likes it!
I bought mine online for almost £15 plus postage as Mothercare didnt stock them at the time, they are now readily available in shops for around £10.
Im giving this 4 stars as my daughter wont eat without her tray.
Summary: If you have a Bumbo it is probably worth buying the tray to go with it
