Did the trick

I think I might rate it closer to a 3.5 if I could. This got the job done and was priced well. My daughter accepted being placed in it, which is more than I can say for many of the baby items we invested in. She enjoyed the toys and music, but did not like the vibrating feature. I no longer felt comfortable using this product when she became strong enough to twist around and grab the sides (about 6 months). The biggest drawback of this product is the design of the toy bar. It would be better if it could pivot to one side or the other. As it is, it makes putting a newborn in or taking her out a bit challenging. The bar can be completely removed or pushed back (it will spring forward again the moment you let go), but neither of these solutions is great.

It’s strong

Well made. My two thirty pound toddlers love sitting in it. My newborn not so much! The cross bar comes out easy. Toys are cute.

great infant seat

This has a bucket type seat so the baby is nice and snug. Its bright and colorful and my newborn loves it!

Poor quality. Buy the FP rocker instead

Great price but the plastic buckles that hold the cover on regularly pop apart, the toy bar is not very secure at all and my baby actually lifted it off by himself today. No big deal, just thought it was poorly designed. The lion head pillow is too thick and my sons head was sliding off to one side so he ends up leaning until I just quit using the pillow, but the top of the cover has a flap that goes across the back upper half and creates a taut line right across the back of where the babies head lies which I assume is why they added the pillow. We only use this thing now for a minute or two here and there, just not sturdy or comfy enough to me. We have a FP rainforest friends rocker / bouncer that we love. It’s more $ but to me it’s hands down worth it. It also doesn’t sink at low as this one does which I like a lot better. Has much better back support for the little guy. The FP one has been great too for naps when we are away from home.

Niece Loves it

My niece is thrilled to have this bouncer and so is her mother. Light weight, easy to remove the bar with the toys hanging on and off. Should have bought her one sooner.
