Donna reviews the Discover 'n Grow Jumperoo
age at time of testing: 5 months
At five and a half months, Hannah doesn’t want to lie on a mat anymore and, as she has silent reflux, the Discover n’ grow Jumperoo (around £110) is great for keeping her upright.
Hannah loves bouncing to the music, which helps strengthen her upper body and legs. She’s also a big fan of the colourful toys – her favourites are the frog teether and giraffe. And I’m sure it won't be long before she works out how to play the piano.
The different height settings will be useful as Hannah grows and when she’s on the move, I know the bouncer will keep her safe if I need to do something quickly in the house.
It’s a well thought out toy, very easy to put together and the washable seat cover is a huge plus. Definitely worth the money.
Liane reviews the Discover 'n Grow Jumperoo
The Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Jumperoo, priced around £110, encourages your baby to move around in a safe environment. She’ll love bouncing up and down to trigger flashing lights, music and fun sound effects. There are also overhead toys for your little one to bat and grab. We asked Liane Chalmers, 36, to test the seat with her son, Oliver, six months. This is her verdict:
The Discover n’ Grow Jumperoo is perfect when I need a bit of hands-free time. It lets me feel confident that Oliver’s safe and entertained while I get on with my chores.
The Jumperoo is easy to assemble and Oliver immediately bounces up and down and starts giggling when I show him the lights and sounds on the keyboard. I also love the fact the bouncer lets him move more freely than when he’s being held or lying on the floor.
I wasn’t sure about the price at first, but seeing the use we get out of it (Oliver’s in there twice a day!) and how much my son loves it, it’s totally worth it. He’s very happy – which makes for one happy and relaxed mum.
Debbie reviews the Discover 'n Grow™ Jumperoo™
The Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Jumperoo, priced around £110, encourages your baby to move around in a safe environment. She’ll love bouncing up and down to trigger flashing lights, music and fun sound effects. There are also overhead toys for your little one to bat and grab. We asked Debbie Zagoria, 30, from Surrey, to test the seat with her daughter, Jessie, six months. This is her verdict:
It was great to see Jessie enjoying the Discover ‘n Grow Jumperoo. It’s bright and colourful and the tunes and sound effects are catchy.
Jessie is currently just a little bit too small for her feet to touch the floor properly, so I am putting something under her feet at the moment so she can bounce around but it will be the perfect fit in no time. Plus there are another two height settings so we will get plenty of use out of it as she grows!
There are lots of activities to keep Jessie busy, too. She’s learnt to spin the penguin and other wheels and pulls the monkey and swipes at the bee and bird above her head. All of the activities seem to be helping to develop her motor skills.
She is happy to go into the Jumperoo and is often heard squealing with delight. I look forward to her learning more skills through playing with it.
Laura reviews the Discover 'n Grow™ Jumperoo™
The Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Jumperoo, priced around £110, encourages your baby to move around in a safe environment. Your baby will love bouncing up and down, which will trigger flashing lights, music and fun sound effects. There are also overhead toys for your little one to bat and grab. We asked Laura Mason, 34, from Kent, to review it with her son Reuben, six months.
I’d heard lots of good reviews from friends about the Jumperoo, so I was looking forward to trying it out. It’s pretty large but only took 10 minutes to assemble.
The brightly coloured characters are within easy reach and offer spinning, moving and teething toys, a mirrored elephant and a battery-powered mini keyboard. This lights up and flashes while the keys make animal noises to a backing track. There are two volume settings – useful now Reuben has worked out he can trigger the music by jumping. He is now bouncing non-stop.
The washable seat swivels 360 degrees so Reuben can reach everything, and he particularly likes playing with the monkey on a spring. This is a very entertaining, versatile toy, and I’ll definitely be recommending it to friends with babies – Reuben adores it!
Lucy reviews the Discover 'n Grow™ Jumperoo™
The Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Jumperoo, priced around £110, offers so much for your baby to discover! She’ll love bouncing up and down to trigger flashing lights, music and fun sound effects, while batting at and grabbing the fun overhead toys. We asked Lucy Lord, 26, from Leeds to review it with her daughter Scarlett, six months.
On first glimpse the Jumperoo seems to work on the same premise as a door bouncer but on closer inspection it offers a lot more. It has a comfortable, cosy yet supportive and secure seat, which is surrounded by bright, stimulating toys. The seat is machine washable and drier safe, which is a must as my daughter is teething and dribbly.
It was very quick and easy to assemble and my only reservation was the size of the Jumperoo. Although that worry is eased by the fact it can be folded for storage. My little girl giggles as she bounces away happily and I actually manage to get some jobs done.
She is fascinated that the Jumperoo can turn round 360° so she can always keep an eye on me. I think the only downside to this product is trying to convince my baby to come out.
Emma reviews the Discover and Grow Jumperoo
There's so much for baby to discover on this jumperoo: a monkey to bat at, a roller ball, teether, a piano to play. And of course, music, sounds & lights every time baby jumps. Our mum tester Emma tried it out with her baby Isabel. This is what she thought:
My first impression on seeing the Jumperoo was wow it's big! But it was very easy to put together and needed no tools (except screwdriver to open battery compartment). Once it was put together, due to the shape it fit nicely in the corner of the room.
The seat is surrounded by three brightly coloured different activity areas, one featuring a mirror, one with a roller with butterflies/small balls inside and lastly a mini piano with three colourful animals. There are also two hanging animals which Isabel loves to bat out of the way.
The Jumperoo has music with two settings, one setting plays continuously for five mins (think this correct!) and then when Izzy jumps plays again for a further five mins.
But Izzy's favourite is activated when she jumps, it didn't take her long to realise that the music played when she jumped – which she thought was hysterical. Lights on the mini piano also flash along with the music. The machine washable seat swivels round 360 degrees so Izzy can be moved between the different areas – Izzy has already discovered how to move herself.
There are three different heights dependent on how tall baby is. And it is very easy to change the height, by adjusting the strapping – takes minutes! Isabel is sixmonths old and still on the first setting.
As soon as Isabel is put into the Jumperoo, the jumping starts and does not stop until I take her out. I think she would happily be in there all day! But I try and limit her time in it as I don't want her to get bored/tired. One day her favourite playthings are the piano and animals, the next she loves the mirror or swatting at the bee and bird. There is a lot of versatility in this toy.
The Jumperoo will help Izzy's development by strengthening up her leg muscles for crawling and walking and all the different toys promote hand-eye coordination. I don't know how I have got by without a Jumperoo!
This is now my must have baby item, it gives me half an hour to do dinner or have a shower. Also with a boisterous toddler I know that she won't get trampled on and is happy and entertained; we both love it so much! Am slightly concerned what I will do when she grows out of it!?!
