      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      SUPRISINGLY POOR.

      I bought this Winnie the Pooh bouncing cradle when having my daughter. I had done the room out in the theme of Winnie the Pooh and so this bouncing cradle was exactly fitting of our needs. This bouncing cradle is very bright and colourful. Its main background colour is a beautiful shade of yellow. With pictures of Winnie the Pooh and friends as the bold foreground design.

      It is safe to say, that this winnie the pooh bouncing cradle will stand out in a crowd. It's design is somewhat busy and although I loved it when I bought it for my baby, I do tend to think it is a design that won't appeal to all.

      Supporting this bouncing cradle is a large silver frame which is very springy and allows the seat to bounce. The cradle itself is very light and can be moved around with great ease. There is a safety support belt fitted into the seat of the bouncer. Basically you fit baby's legs either side of this belt and this will keep baby in a safe position without the risk of falling out.

      There is also a head support cusion which I found excellent when my baby was born. Simply because my daughter was premature and so very small in size. The head support allowed her to sit in the bounce whilst having her head comfortably cushioned. This gave me great peace of mind that she was comfortable and her neck was in the right position.

      Although there was a great look to this Winnie the pooh bouncing cradle. I was not really impressed with it's quality. It was not particualrly strong. Infact it was quite flimsy in it's stature. Also it didn't have any positioning features. So if baby fell asleep there was no way I could put her flat.

      My baby liked to sit in this bouncer for short periods only. I think this was because she found it boring. Also the bigger she grew she would rock the bouncer and I was sometimes quite alarmed by the degree in which the chair would go back.

      If im truthful, I wouldn't buy this bouncing cradle again. I was totally swayed by the design and I didnt take any time to look at what features other bouncing cradles have. I did find it's lightwieght nature handy when baby was going to relatives as the bouncer was easy to transport. But apart from this, I just didn't look apon this bouncer as a particularly valuable aid when rearing baby.

      The Winnie the Pooh bouncing cradle, was around £20 in price. If my memory serves me right, I believe I bought this item from Argos. In terms of bouncers, this one is a quite inexpensive and I would say that this is reflective in the quality. If I was to purchase another bouncer, I would not buy this Winnie the Pooh one. I feel that it would be more cost effective to spend a little more on the bouncer that has more features. Then Im sure I would get to use the bouncer a lot more.

      Disadvantages

      A bit expesnive, but worth it.

      We got this for the house before my niece was old enough for the bumbo seat. We needed somewhere to place her when she was just a few weeks old. We got this whilst at mother care picking up our bits and pieces since we had the car anyway. My fiancé tried to convince me that it was all a waste of money, at £40 I wasn't surprised. Yes, I thought it was quite steep, but was it all worth it? Well, the truth was soon to be revealed.

      When we took it home and set it up, we were quite impressed.

      It is a very bland colour which means it can easily fit in with any room. Summer's nursery is pink, and our living room is cream. Therefore, it looks good in the living room when it is in use, and good in the bedroom when it is sitting unused. It is a perfect size, Summer was quite a big baby and she just sunk into it no bother! It is a soft sponge material (cover: 65% polyester, 35% cotton. Inside: 100% cotton), which is delicate to a baby's skin and proves extra comfort. In the middle, it was plain yellow-cream, which a white area around it with Winnie The Pooh pictures. I thought this style was a lot nicer than what some of the Winnie The Pooh ones were, because some of them looked over crowded was pictures.

      When we first placed her into it, she wad sound asleep. It is not overly bouncy but gives 3 different speeds of vibration. I prefer it this way as I don't like the idea of it being to bouncy whilst she's trying to sleep. However, it requires a strange type of battery that isn't included, one of those really really thick ones, you know?

      There is a little safety harness which is padded so it doesn't hurt the baby. There is an arched clip-on which have three dangly clip-on toys which attach to this arch to amuse the baby. Unfortunately, as Summer got bigger, we lost one of the toys. They should make it harder to pull off.

      Summer slept like a baby (as she was) in this bouncy chair, we even allowed her to sit in it to eat little snacks and watch Cbeebies. Were we worried about it? No. It was very easy to clean and all it took was a little wipe.

      This was very useful for us and done Summer up to 5 months. You can sue it up to 6 months for your baby, but Summer was quite fat as a little one. I would recommend this, it is a little bit expensive but it gives you a lot of great extra features that the usual cheap one doesn't.

      such a lovely item and more practial than others on the market

      The winnie the pooh bouncing cradle is a proper bouncer!
      i bought this bouncer and a chicco dj rocker aswell and my baby girl prefered this one to the chicco that cost 3 times as much.
      The winnine the pooh cradle was just lovely from day one,perfect for an afternoon nap as it was so soft and snugly ,even better when you add a blankie for a bit more comfort and warmth.
      my baby always looked so comfy in it and when she was a bit bigger say about 6 months old and a bit more interested and awake more she really loved it as it bounced properly not just rocked back and forth like the chicco one.

      the seat cover is removable and washable which is a must have with a baby
      the harness is fully adjustable again a must have and also a head support for those first few months

      all in all an excellent buy and so much better than one costing 3 times as much

        not the best bouncer available today

        our baby bouncer at home was a vibrating bouncer that had a reclining adjustable back position and a flashing toy bar that played music but i couldnt be bothered to keep taking this to the caravan with us every time we went which was quite often so i brought this winnie the pooh bouncer from mothercare for £25 to leave at the caravan.

        I loved this bouncer, it was easy to assemble, easy to clean and could be stored away easily when we were not using it.

        My daughter had other ideas, she had been spoilt by our more expensive bouncer at home by then so didnt like this bouncer as it didnt vibrate so we used to have to rock her in it constantly, she also didnt like being sat in such an upright position as a young baby and as she got older found it very easy to lean over the sides after something she had droped and would topple out of the bouncer.

        This bouncer would have been brilliant if we hadnt spoilt her but i do think the more expensive bouncers we had were a lot better and a lot sturdier

        I borrowed this bouncer off a friend and first used it when my daughter was about five weeks old. I was really impressed! My daughter really seemed to like the new viewpoint that the bouncer gave her and it also gave us chance to be face to face with eachother comfortably. She loved sitting in this chair and being entairtained, read stories to etc. She also loved sitting in it and 'commanding the room' when we had visitors!. As she got older and heavier she started to enjoy bouncing the chair. A word of warning though- make sure you don't put your child in a bouncer when they are above the weight limit as they may be able to 'capsise' it. One of the best features of this chair is how hardwearing it is.When my friend gave it me it looked brand new even though her daughter had used it loads. After my daughter had grown too big for it and it had been though the wash several times it still looked brand new!

          The one i have rated this opinion under is not the one i wanted to write about but its the closest i could find to Mothercare's Winnie The Pooh Bouncer Chair! I bought the bouncer form my mail order catalogue to match all my other winnie the pooh furniture and accessorys as i like things to match! i thought as it was a bit more pricey than the basic bouncers that it would be really good quality and easy to use. Unfortunately when i made it up from the box this was not so, at first i thought i had maybe made it wrong, but i checked the instructions and my father had a look at it too, it was right. Even with out a baby in the bouncer it did not bounce, just moved up and down with pressure put on it, when it came to trying my son out in it, it was appaling ... no bounce and after a few times of using it it was flat on the ground as opossed to my child being sat up in it, it couldnt obviously even hold a babys weight! I would definately NOT recommend this to any one and next time i will think first before forking out on the money for a more expensive rocker, a basic £20 ish pound one does a much better job.

            Bouncers and Rockers, we have used both types of chair, but I have found that my kids preferred the rhythm of the bouncer chair, which sent them peacefully to sleep. The rocker chair was a too harsh movement and wouldn’t allow them to drop off. When I had my first child we were given a second hand bouncer, which had a removable activity toy. She would always play with it, which would make her smile. This chair lasted my next child and also my nephew, who I looked after while my sister was at work. For my third child I had to purchased a new chair, I purchased a Winnie the pooh Bouncer chair from Argos, which came with a free head rest which I found very useful indeed, it supported my babies head. The only problem with Rockers and Bouncers are they cause baby to suffer backache. The best place for a baby is laying in a carrycot, resting their back.
