Last week when we were snowed in, Finley and I built the Jumpscape fold-away jumper that Niamh had been sent by Skip Hop. He was well into building something that big for his sister and it’s a testament to how easy it was to put together – that a four year could help me! We’d done it in about 20 minutes and Niamh has been literally living her best life ever since…
We’ve never had a baby jumper before. Finley had a door swing jumper that he loved but not one as sophisticated as this – we actually call it Niamh’s Space Station ! It has a cloud shaped bounce counter which tracks the number of bounces she does in a session (and her all time PB). Finley is obsessed with this counter as it cheers her every time she reaches a milestone. So when she reaches a 100 bounces, which is quite often – he announces to the room that we must all stop what we are doing and applaud her!
Hopefully we won’t turn her into too much of a narcissist…
The cloud also displays different coloured lights and four different songs. It seems the more the music plays, the more she wants to bounce!
It has four adjustable clip on toys that are really cute and great for fine tuning her motor skills. It’s a woodland theme, with a bumble bee spinner and a hedgehog mirror that are really cute. Her favourite are the swaying trees which twist and flap backwards and forwards when she tugs them. The seat swivels, which she hasn’t figured out yet but is ideal for me because I can just spin her around as opposed to moving the whole bouncer across the room.
She’s pretty much living in it and will attempt to jump on your lap if you don’t get her in it quick enough!
It’s portable so you can take it to other people’s houses, it folds flat for transportation or storage. It also has five adjustable heights, so at 5 months old Niamh is on the lowest setting in order to get her feet flat on the ground. But as she grows I can change the height so she can carry on bouncing for many months to come!
We love it!
