I received this bouncer as a gift at my baby shower. I had registered for it because it was unisex and very brightly colored. I figured I liked to look at so, so my soon-to-be baby would probably too! Now that my baby is 6 months old, I have found that, while a good product, I didn't use it very much.

This bouncer has nice features including music that can be turned to low or high, a removable toy bar, and gentle vibrations. The music plays soft, clam songs that would be good to get a baby to relax and sleep to. My girl never did fall asleep in it, but she would get nice and relaxed in it. I don't think the vibrations did much for her though. I would turn them on and off every now and then to see if she would react any differently and she never did.

The removable toy bar is nice because you can easily get the baby in and out of the seat without having to maneuver them around the toys. One problem is that I would forget it slides in and out and I would go to pick it up by the toy bar. Of course the bar would just come out and I would have to put it back in and pick it up by the main body. Not too big of an issue, but when you have a baby in one arm, it would have been nice to just pick it up by the bar and go. The toys that come with it are not that impressive. There is a little teeter-totter type toy in the middle that a baby could bat at, but it doesn't do anything. There is also a small stuffed turtle, and a gel teething ring. They are set somewhat high for a small baby to reach, but my 6 month old can now sit up a little to grab them.

The seat is very easy to put together, and the fabric is easily removable for washing in the washer and dryer.
