Fisher-Price Space saver Jumperoo **REVIEW**

If you have a young baby then I am sure you have heard about or seen the Jumperoo. You will have also noticed that they take up quite a lot of space, which if you don't have an abundance of space or your living space is already taken up by little people toys this can be a little off putting.

However Fisher-Price have listened to parents concerns and have come up with a solution... The SpaceSaver Jumperoo! 

The SpaceSaver Jumperoo has most of the same features as the original Jumperoo such as the lights, sounds and toys but it folds down so that it can be placed away when not in use. 

The SpaceSave Jumeproo features - 

• Rewards baby’s jumping with lights, sounds and music!
• Lets baby jump safely—no doorway required
• Light-up musical piano
• Soft-sided overhead toy bar with monkey roller ball and two rainforest friends spinners
• Bobble frog teether, clacker ring bar, turtle clicker
• Jumping and hands-on activity toy play encourage development of baby’s motor skills
• Sounds, music, textures and a teether help stimulate baby’s senses

The space saver Jumperoo is easy to put together it requires no tools and I managed to put it all together myself in around 10 minutes. The pieces just simple click together. 



The seat cover is easily removed and machine washable which is great as we all know babies are prone to getting dirty! The rest of the Jumperoo is easily wipe clean and the lights and sounds piano can also be removed for easy cleaning. 

We did find that as the front of the Jumperoo is fixed it wasn't quite as bouncy as the original Jumperoo and it meant baby could only jump up and down rather than the full range or movement available in the original Jumperoo. However Evelyn still seemed to thoroughly enjoy it and really liked the fact when she bounced it set of the lights and music on the little piano at the front.
Although Evelyn did find it a little frustrating that she is yet unable to reach the large toy bar at the front.



The SpaceSaver Jumperoo is easy to fold down (although it was a little stiff to begin with) and simply requires you to push in 3 "buttons" 2 at the front and 1 at the back and it folds in on itself. I did find that although it was much more compact and easy to store it didn't fold completely flat as the bar at the back is curved. It was still easy enough to store behind the sofa or in a large cupboard though.




The Jumperoo is designed to grow with baby. It has 4 height levels which are easily adjusted at the back the Jumperoo. Evelyn is tall and almost 9 months old and we have just moved her on to level 3 which will last her a while so the Jumperoo is definitely a toy that will last. 

The Jumperoo can be used from once baby can hold there own head up comfortable up until 25lbs. Considering this although the price tag of around £80 may seem high when you consider how long the Jumperoo will last it is quite a fair price. 

Overall we liked the SpaceSaver Jumperoo. I think it would be a great investment for a family who perhaps don't have the space for the original Jumperoo but still want the same type of toy. There a are a few niggly problems such as it not being as bouncy and the toy bar being a little difficult to reach but these are minor issues and certainly not anything that stopped Evelyn thoroughly enjoying her Jumperoo as I am sure she will for many more months!

  4. Anything that saves space is a winner. Baby stuff takes up so much. But they are so worth it, especially when they are as cute as your little girl.
