Fisher-Price have a new Jumperoo on the scene, I hear you cry how does this differ.
Well like all of Fisher-Price’s Jumperoo’s baby can bounce away from when they hold their head over 3 height stages, but the First Steps Jumperoo also extends and allows baby to take their 1st steps.
We very kindly were sent the Jumperoo for Deacon to put to the test, he has already been bouncing away for a few months in his sisters old Rainforest Jumperoo and loved it, it was a great safe way for him to play and be able to look around, so we were sure the First Steps Jumperoo would be a winner and we were not wrong.
The Jumperoo is easy to build as with most Fisher-Price toys, it is a little bigger footprint than the Jumperoo’s already sold by Fisher-Price but I found as it was a rectangle shape it would fit into spaces easier.
As before it comes with 2 sound levels and can be set to make noises as child bounces or continuous, we found Deacon preferred the new sounds more than the old Jumperoo, they are a little louder too but not massively.
The 360 movement of the First Steps Jumperoo is more fluid than before, which pleased Deacon as it allowed him to play with all the toys, in particular he loves the black and white beads that can be moved from side to side. All toys as always are great bright and engaging toys, safe to be mouthed by little babies, the Turtle teething toy in particular is fantastic as much more accessible and nice soft material for little gums.
Fisher-Price as always have put child safety foremost with netted sides making sure no little fingers can get caught as you extend the frame for the First Steps walking frame, this also works well to catch toys that we give Deacon in the Jumperoo when he throws them.
Obviously the main change with this Jumperoo is the walking frame, Deacon has loved this, he has not been a big fan of his walker, but loves to be up on his feet taking steps, the Fisher-Price First Step has allowed him to do just that and he has been walking back and forth since his first use, he loves it when Addison helps him to walk in it.
The Jumperoo is very clever, we have actually given our original Jumperoo to our niece and chose to keep the new First Steps Jumperoo for Deacon (and possibly another ssh). My only gripe is the height is a little less than the other Jumperoo’s before it, thankfully Deacon is short so it hasn’t hugely effected his use, but could be for taller babies.
I think a Fisher-Price Jumperoo is one of the best buys for any baby and has always been on my top 10 list, the First Steps still makes me think this.
Quick Note – The Jumperoo does fold down quite slim so when needed to store it easily fits under a bed.
Available at most Fisher-Price suppliers, including Amazon, Argos and more.
Disclosure – We were sent the 1st Steps Jumperoo FOC to share our review.
