Fisher Price Jumperoo Review, Rainforest Jumperoo and Precious Planet Jumperoo
|March 9, 2012||Posted by under Baby Gear Reviews|
Today I am going to do a write up of two different products that I use and love, the Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo and the Fisher Price Precious Planet Jumperoo.
Most families just choose one. Initially, my first choice was the Rainforest Jumperoo, but I was given the Precious Planet Jumperoo by a friend.
Since I have two separate levels of the house, I kept both. Both the Rainforest and Precious planet Jumperoos have their pros and cons, so I will go into detail about what I like and dislike about both.
And at the very end of my Fisher Price Jumperoo Review, I will let you know which one my baby prefers, so make sure you read until the very end!
Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo Review
This jumperoo has four different activity stations that the baby can swivel around to play with, kind of like an exosaucer.
It also has a parrot and frog attached to palm fronds that adjust to different heights, so your baby can reach up to play with those as well.
The straps that anchor the seat to the jumperoo are adjustable, so when your baby is younger, you will let the straps out as far as they go, and as he grows, shorten the straps.
I bought the Rainforest Jumperoo when my current baby was four months old. He was not old enough to jump in it, but his feet did reach the floor and he enjoyed playing with the toys.
Now he is 9 months old, and it is still one of his favorite places to play.
He aggressively jumps, and swings himself back and forth in it. He really engages with the toys and has figured out how he likes to play with everything.
The Rainforest Jumperoo does not have any electronic parts, which I love. My nerves cannot take the electronic sound effects that a lot of modern baby toys have.
Once the jumperoo has been collapsed down, it can fit into a large car trunk or minivan.
We always take ours with us when we are traveling so that we have someplace safe and fun to put the baby if we cannot hold him at the time.
If you like for your baby gear to coordinate and match, then you are in luck with the Rainforest line. Fisher price makes Rainforest deluxe gyms, mobiles, cradle swings, bouncers, booster seats, baths, and high chairs.
The Rainforest Jumperoo is going to cost around $90. Amazon has the best price and also offers free shipping.
Fisher Price Precious Planet Jumperoo Review
A friend gave us the Precious Planet Jumperoo about two months after we bought the Rainforest one. Our baby enjoyed the Rainforest Jumperoo so much that we decided to go ahead and keep both for different levels of the house.
The Precious Planet Jumperoo is set up much like the Rainforest. The seat swivels around to different activity centers just like an exosaucer. The activities for the two jumperoos are different, so if the baby happens to be in both on the same day, he doesn’t seem to get bored.
Our Precious Planet jumperoo does have a sound box, but thankfully, you can turn it off It makes different sounds as the baby jumps up and down.
The design of the Precious Planet jumperoo seems a little less sturdy to me, but we have never actually had a problem with it. The baby seems to enjoy rocking back and forth (or rather throwing himself back and forth) more in this one, and he prefers jumping in the Rainforest.
So which one does our baby prefer? The Rainforest Jumperoo or the Precious Planet Jumperoo?
In our house, the clear winner is……..
