Tested by mum Sarah Baker for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

The way this is so easy to fold down and store is amazing! It takes up much less room than a standard jumperoo but still has all the features and fun you would expect. It’s bright and colourful which baby loved and lots of buttons and things to focus on. The adjustable height element means it can grow with your little one as well. We loved the overall design of this and my husband loved the fact that when it wasn't in use or when baby was asleep, you could easily fold it down and store it out of the way so that it wasn't taking up your whole lounge

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

It’s so easy to fold down and put up that it makes it really practical and portable. We were even able to fold it up and take it with us when we visited friends which was invaluable as it meant baby had somewhere safe and contained to play when we got there and I didn't have to worry about keeping them entertained

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I can't think of anything I would change about this other than the price. I think it is a much more practical option to standard jumperoo, but the price means that it is a very big investment, especially for first time parents

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love that the product is foldable so can easily put it up and down, when it is up there, quite a bit of space is used but so simple to put away once finished with. My daughter loved all the interactive options on the tray and it kept her entertained for ages. She can also bounce easily and finds this soothing at times. I love the bright colours and would recommend this to any new mum.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

This keeps my daughter entertained so I can do some jobs like the ironing or make a cup of tea which all us mummies take for granted. I love the functionality of it and so does my little girl.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

It would be great to see the original rainforest design which has two suspension wires but in a foldable capacity, other than that this product is fantastic.

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

I love this product, it's so good to be able to fold it flat when I no longer want to use it and super easy to put back up. It's bright and eye-catching and kept the little one entertained for ages. Love it!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Helpful to give me a much needed ten minute tea break as keeps little ones attention and so much to look at and do. I really enjoy using this product.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I'd like to see different designs available to give more choice but other than that it's fab.

Tested by mum Carly Pearson for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This is one of the best toys ever! Not only did it give my baby the opportunity to become more independent, it also developed her motor skills with all of the activities available at her fingertips. She thoroughly enjoyed spending time in it and bouncing up and down to her heart’s content, particularly when she was rewarded with the lights and sounds for her efforts. She beamed! I love the fact that we were able to reclaim some of our lounge space once little one had gone to bed. It folded up really easily and we could then prop it up out of the way, however, it is still fairly large once erected. I liked the fact that the product is unisex and all of the characters appealed to my little girl. All in all, a massive hit!

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

By providing the opportunity to be hands free for periods of time, safe in the knowledge that your baby is entertained and happy!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

My baby tended to lean forwards slightly once in the seat. If she were more upright I would have preferred it and think she would have been more comfortable.

Tested by mum Kelly Moore for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

This product is designed to save you space - something that is seriously lacking in our house! When it is put together, it is still fairly wide, but a fantastic feature is the ability to fold it up and put it away at the end of the day which could be done easily and quickly. My baby thoroughly enjoyed spending time in the bouncer and exploring all of the different activities. At first we used the setting which allows the lights and sounds to be on permanently until she got the hang of it, but before long she was bouncing away merrily and enjoyed hearing the different noises and interacting with the animals. The teether has come in very useful! Baby always looked comfortable in the seat. Due to the size and foldability of this product, we have also used it out in the garden and took it away with us for a weekend.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Being able to fold it up and pop it in the car for a short holiday proved to be very useful indeed as we have never taken any large toys away before. This meant that whilst away from home, baby still had something to entertain her when she didn't have access to any of her usual toys and was in a space that was not particularly baby-friendly!

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

My baby is quite small for her age and became a little frustrated when she couldn't reach the toys on the arch. If this was height adjustable then I think it would suit a wider range of children and make it more accessible to smaller babies.

Tested by mum Linda Harries for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

If you are looking for a toy that stimulates your baby and allows them to build strength in their legs, then this is it. My little boy loved being in it to begin with, but once he had become mobile, he became disinterested and frustrated every time I put him in it. This was despite him having previously enjoyed playing with the animals and noises. So it was a little disappointing that the toy didn't have a longer shelf life. This might be down to the fact that there is actually not much bounce in the product, because there is only one spring compared with other bouncers where there are three. This was probably sacrificed to allow for the unique selling point of being able to fold it away once you are done with it. Whilst this did make the room tidier at the end of the day, I did find myself leaving it up most of the time so not sure the sacrifice was worth it.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

Before becoming mobile, this toy enable my baby to experience the sensation of being upright and I am convinced that it helped him to develop the muscles he needed to pull himself up. I can see the appeal in having a product which it is possible to fold away if you are short on space.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I would try and find a way of getting a little extra bounce. This might make it appeal to children for a longer period of time.

Tested by mum Emma Jones for the M&B Awards 2016:

Why would you recommend this product to a friend/fellow mum?

We live in a flat and so can struggle for room, this is ingenious how it folds away so flat and allows us to have a jumperoo. Really makes baby work the legs and plays nice cheery sounds. My little girls could spend hours in it if I was to let her. Easy to clean with a baby wipe and because it folds so flat it's good for travel.

How does this product make your life easier as a mum?

The small folding flat concept makes it so easy to store away and also easy to pack for travel.

If you could change one thing about this product what would it be?

I wouldn't change anything, the idea is brilliant.
