A Million Bounces (Review)

When Lindam created their Bounce About Challenge, Dylan was first to put his hand up and volunteer.  He has always loved being on his feet and the bouncer, designed to sit in a doorway would be perfect for him to stretch his legs.  

The bouncers are tested for a million bounces but my little man was not feeling much like tigger.  He loves being in his bouncer, but the idea of bending his legs and picking his feet off the floor has not occured to him. He is the only baby I know
not to bounce in a bouncer!

Nevertheless he loves being in there and the support it gives him to practice standing.  He loves to twirl around and see what he can reach, and could happily spend twenty minutes in there.  He loved playing with the stairgate on his bedroom door and watching me walk around.  The challenge was to photograph your little bouncer but here is my little stander:

We would really recommend the bouncer for a baby who likes being stood up.  They are really practical and I used the time to put away washing or do some washing up as he stood and watched me.  The only downside was that the weight limit for the bouncer is 12kg.  For any 'normal' child this would not be a problem but my rather chunky monkey is slightly over 12kg at 11 months so the bouncer has come to the end of it's journey for us.  As you can see his head is also rather close to the top bar.   We loved the bright colours though and it felt secure on the door frame and around the baby.  So much handier than free standing bouncer,this one is compact when not in use and very easy to store which is perfect in our house.

The bouncer retails for around £19.99 and is available from Argos.  It is machine washable (perfect for messy babies!) and suitable up to 12kg for a baby that can support its head unaided.

 Do your little ones like to bounce?  Did you have a door bouncer for them?

Disclaimer: We were sent the door bouncer for the purpose of this challenge but all thoughts, words and pictures are my own.
