Guide Review - Fisher Price Deluxe Jumperoo
A step up from the classic doorway jumpers, the Deluxe Jumperoo doesn't require you to give up use of a doorway as baby plays, nor does it carry the risk of falls that were somewhat common with doorway models. The frame and jumping seat are portable, and the legs fold in to fit through doors or for storage. The Jumperoo does take up quite a bit of space even when folded, though, so be prepared to find room to store it if baby lets you put it away for a while. Though the large size make it more difficut to travel with, the Deluxe Jumperoo would be a great way to entertain baby away from home if you had space to take it with you.
As baby jumps, music plays and the Deluxe Jumperoo provides a mini light show for baby. The built-in toys on the seat's tray mean parents won't have to retrieve toys constantly from the floor. The lights and music require 3 AA batteries to work. There are a few parent complaints that the light bulbs burn out quickly, but this problem doesn't appear to be widespread. The fun provided for baby, the portability, and the sturdiness make the Fisher Price Deluxe Jumperoo well worth the $50-$70 price tag.
