Fisher Price Jumperoo Review:Guide to the Fisher Price Jumperoo - As a parent, you have to balance your child's safety with fun and stimulation, and ideally, a few minutes of quiet time for you. Babies are sweet and precious, and they bring out the protective instinct in us. They are also utterly exhausting. Anytime you can get a few minutes of time to do the dishes, put dinner in the oven, catch up on some work or do the bills, or just sit down and take a rest, it is well worth taking. This is what has made the Fisher Price Jumperoo so beloved among parents: it occupies baby and keeps her safe and happy so you can have your minute. But more importantly, the Jumperoo is beloved among babies because it is fun, bright, and colorful. It has lights, music, spinning monkeys, swirling planets, dancing fish, and much more. Your child can visit the Fisher Price rainforest, galaxy, or ocean anytime she likes, and you can rest assured that she is learning, happy, and being well taken care of. Now if we could only find a Jumperoo in your size, you'd be all set. This is your guide to the Fisher Price Jumperoo and the adventures your child will find.
The Fisher Price Jumperoo- In the first year of life, your baby's head will grow to about 80 percent of its ideal size. This is because that brain is growing, developing, and making new connections every day - every second even. The connections in our brains allow us to engage in complex thought, and babies make these connections by observing and interacting with their environment. You don't need to drill the alphabet into your baby, though. She learns so much more naturally. All she needs are the right tools. She needs color, lights, sounds, especially your words, motion, and textures. With each new thing she is exposed to, she makes new connections and develops new skills. This is what makes the Jumperoo so effective. Not only does it entertain and occupy your child, it teaches them. Let's take a look at the Fisher Price Rain Forest Jumperoo, one of the most popular. This is a baby seat or jumper that adds a lot of color and sound to your baby's day. Your child sits in a red frog seat, and in front of her is a little spinning drum that she can use to activate the Rainforest-themed music and lights. This is not only fun, it teaches her cause and effect. There are toys around and overhead that she can reach up for (another important skill), touch, explore, or simply look at. The toys include: a bobbing elephant, swinging monkey, spinning lizard, a cute parrot, and a fun tree frog hanging from the leaves above your child's head. The seat spins so she can look at anything she likes, while strengthening her leg muscles. They thought of everything, didn't they? Each fun activity teaches or reinforces an essential skill. The seat has 3 different heights, so you can fit it to your child and extend its use as she grows. The soft springs are covered to ensure that your child's fingers are not pinched or poked. There are different themed Jumperoos, including the Fisher-Price Precious Planet Jumperoo, Lil Laugh & Learn, and Ocean Wonders. You can find a review of the Precious Planet Jumperoo on YouTube down below.
With the exception of the Lil Laugh & Learn, these Jumperoos cost less than $80. You can also see that each Jumperoo consistently gets high ratings for reviewers: having a few hundred people agree on a product is amazing, having them agree that it is a 5-star product is more amazing still. The Lil Laugh n' Learn is more expensive but it adds a few more features to the mix. This fun farm-themed Jumperoo offers lights and music in two modes: learning and music. Your child will learn to identify objects, colors, begin preliminary counting skills, and learn animal sounds. The music mode, which can be either kid-activated or parent-activated, offers 10 minutes of music to accompany playing. The Laugh & Learn is excellent, and like the other Jumperoos, highly rated among reviewers. But rest assured that your baby will laugh and learn with any of the Fisher Price Jumperoo models. The Laugh & Learn costs $120.
