How it works

Many new parents know how hard it is to try to keep a growing baby satisfied and calm, especially when they are starting to be aware of their surrounding which basically means from the age of 3-4 months and on. During these wonderful, but often exhausting months for parents, the babies are in a process of active learning and moving. This not only means that they need a lot of focused attention but also they need physical contact with the objects they see around and in that way they develop their ability to observe, notice, touch and feel. The market is nowadays abundant with varieties of toys and baby equipment, ranging from the ones designed to provide the best learning experience, to the ones that will keep babies busy and thus provide a bit of free time for parents. In this array of options to choose from, it is extremely important for parents to keep babies busy and active, but at the same time parents to experience some brief moments of time on their own. Having said that, the Fisher-Price Jungle Jumperoo is considered by many parents to be a have-it-all toy, which literally includes everything that a parent could hope for in a toy and at the same time a toy that is an enjoyment for the loved ones. Being an absolute hit among parents we decided that it is time to check Fisher-Price Jungle Jumperoo and see the reasons for popularity.

The seat pad can be washed and dried in a machine and all the other parts, including the metal construction, can be cleaned with a damp cloth. One of the favorite babies ‘toys from this jumper –the rubber butterfly is chewable and it can be easily cleaned.
Comfort and Security

Comfort and Security

Regarding safety and security, it has been thus designed so that it is placed safely on the ground. It consists of a sturdy metal frame which is constructed to be flexible during movement in order not to break and to take the effect of the jumping on itself rather than the baby, so some wobbling can be expected and that should not be a concern for parents. Due to this reason, it must not be placed near sources of heat, dangerous or sharp objects or on uneven surfaces. The babies are not supposed to be left unattended but it can come handy when the caregiver needs to quickly use the toilet or open the front door.

The correct assembly of the construction is the first step to ensure that the product is safe for your baby, so please strictly follow the user manual and the steps provided there, so that you are sure it is safe to be used. Never put your baby inside until you test it first. The central position of the seat which is attached on the metal string with two springs provides security and stability.

The springs are covered with a soft and colorful cover which protects baby’s hands and fingers and fits in the general feeling of a jungle-like atmosphere. The seat seems to be very comfortable and wide enough to fit growing babies, even though there are some reports that claim that it is easily outgrown before babies reach the maximum weight. The pad of the seat is soft and comfortable and it covers the plastic construction that supports the baby which is an additional plus since babies often lean on it.
Physical Development

Physical Development

The initial height position is suitable for very young babies and it is recommended that they touch the floor with their toes, but not have their feet on the ground or hang from the seat. In case babies’ feet are not long enough to touch the floor, it is advisable for parents to put an additional mat or another surface so that the baby touches the ground with its feet. In that way, the baby will learn to push itself up and down and back and forth and will stimulate the development of the motor skills. As the baby grows the seat can be adjusted in three positions so that it fits the purpose of bouncing and jumping.

Above the seat, extending from the frame, there are two soft leaves which complement the overall feeling of being in a jungle and which also have soft hanging toys which motivate the baby to reach for them. It seems that the rubber butterfly is babies’ favorite toy because it is chewable and it can be easily cleaned. The product is thus designed so that it stimulates not only learning and curiosity, but it also stimulates movement and leg muscles strengthening.

In addition to this, the baby will soon realize that it can push itself up and down, back and forth and that is a perfect exercise for babies who are on a constant move. Babies enjoy bouncing and jumping and thus develop their gross motor skills so most of them enjoy in the Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo.
Entertainment Value

Entertainment Value

This product has been regarded as one of the most entertaining, have-it-all products for babies. The design itself is very colorful and bright which stimulates visual effects at babies. The colors are clear and vivid and appropriate for babies of that age. The toys are attached in a position of 360 degrees to stimulate the baby to spin around and develop his/her creativity, as the chair rotates left and right providing the baby with all the amusement he/she can get.

The entertainment is enforced with the jungle sounds and music that comes from the drum spinner, so babies can enjoy the sounds and the light that is created. Once the baby is placed inside the seat it will start keeping itself busy by exploring the various jungle toys which are in a shape of jungle animals, such as bobbing elephant, spinning lizard, swinging monkey, a bird, a drum and many more. The baby can explore the jumperoo by spinning around while enjoying playing with the toys. There is a chewable toy as well which is thought to be one of the most useful when it comes to soothing irritated babies.
Portability and Design

Portability and Design

The jumper is easy to use and it can be pivoted for storage and portability, even though it is not a portable jumper, i.e. the folding of the metal frames is just for practicality to reduce the radius of the metal frames. The metal frame can be pivoted to its nested position which means the parents can tuck it away when they don’t use it or when they want to move it from one place to another. It can’t be folded for easier transportation but it can be fairly easy disassembled if needed.

Since this product is made of steel and plastic it is fairly heavier when compared to other similar products. However, its steel frame construction guarantees safety and stability and thus provides security for your little ones.
