This is one of the BEST items we purchased for our son. It is amazing – simple and straightforward to use, not clunky, collapses, and doesn’t stick out in the room like 99% of the brightly coloured baby items we have. Our son is really able to get this bouncer going – I love that it isn’t battery powered, he seems to be excited buy the fact that it moves from his kicking. The cover comes off very easily to wash and also is easy to put back on, which is rare for baby gear. It has held up very well through multiple washes – spit up and diaper blow outs are no problem – just wash in the washing machine and air dry. It seems pricey compared to other bouncers, but in my opinion it was well worth it.
