We decided to review the Fisher-Price Discover ‘n Grow Jumperoo because there has been a lot of interest in this model. Let’s get right into it. There is a rotating seat that rotates a full 360 degrees, so baby will have fun spinning around and watching everyone.
The seat is also very comfortable and is built in a way to be very safe for baby. Studies show that jumping, spinning and moving in a jumper enhances baby’s large motor skills, so this model is perfect for that. The soft-goods toys are removable and can be washed in your washer.
Something that we really like is that this product rewards jumping with music, sounds and lights. This Jumperoo has A LOT to offer. When compared to some other models, it has more exciting sounds, lights and music to offer baby. If your little one is teething, there is something for that.
There is a roller ball, mirror, spinning penguin and monkey. There is also a piano and several other features to enjoy. The lights and music are fine rewards for jumping.
This model is built with a durable steel frame, so there is no doubt that it’s safe. It also doesn’t require a doorway. The soft-spring covers ensure baby’s fingers are safe from injury.
It has three adjustable heights, so it will grow with your little one. The legs also fold for easier storage.
When it comes to babies, more playing equals more learning. Jumping around is an excellent form of learning. As playing takes place, gross motor skills are continually enhanced.
Cause and effect are learned through the activities that baby can enjoy with this jumper. Put simply, he or she learns how to make stuff happen.
All of the bright colors and enticing music help to develop baby’s senses. It’s a good idea to start showing him or her some of the features. It’s important to demonstrate how things work.
For example, start the music or lights. Allow baby to try it alone and get rewarded with a fun surprise.
The Good and the Bad
We really like that the seat is deeper than many comparable models and really provides great support. When compared to bouncier models, this one is significantly more responsive to movements.
The bright colors and toys seem to work wonders for grabbing and holding baby’s attention. The light-up keyboard, for example, seems to almost put baby into a trance. The three different adjustable heights ensure baby will be able to grow with this model.
There really aren’t any negative things to say about this product. Some people have complained that it’s too big, and depending on your personal preference, this COULD be the case, but we don’t think it’s overly large – maybe compared to some other models.
Some consumers have complained that this particular model is very difficult to put back together after you’ve assembled it, so that it definitely something to keep in mind.
At the end of the day, this seems to be a great product for the price. It has a mid-range price for this style of jumper, and it certainly outperforms other models in its class.
There is plenty to love about this model and not much of anything to hate. You have to decide if it’s right for your little one.
