Stationary Entertainers

I’m on the hunt for a stationary entertainer for my 5 month old son. We received the Fisher-Price Go Wild Jumperoo as a baby shower gift and just attempted using it the other night. The springs on three sides makes the apparatus very fluid. It provides quite a bit of movement, which is great for older babies who can get bored easily, but is my son ready for so MUCH movement? The bigger question being, is his Mom ready? So now I’m looking into an Evenflo ExerSaucer which appears to provide a little more stability. I was at Target this afternoon and they had the Baby Einstein Rhythm of the Reef Activity Saucer, which seems to provide the same “saucer-like” technique in a stationary activity toy. I feel like I need an engineering degree to decipher these toys. If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them. Below are the current options we are considering. Go Wild is already in the rotation, it’s just a question of when.

I don’t really think so, but then again it was his first time “going wild.” He’s a skeptical child and likes to really investigate things before giving himself over to it whole heartedly. He’s like his Mom in that way.

I must say I am a huge fan of the Fisher-Price line. I will talk about more of our favorites in upcoming posts but overall, I’m really happy with the quality of their products.
