Original review on 1/4/13
I bought this jumperoo about a month ago. We've been living with my in-laws for the past month (and will be here every summer for about 5 weeks) and I thought our son would appreciate having his favorite toy with him. We have the rainforest jumperoo at home and bought it when our son was about 3 months old. Here are the differences and here is what I like and don't like about this one:
Height:
The Luv-u-zoo is for a taller baby. Our son's feet reached the floor for a couple weeks before we left home in the rainforest jumperoo. Here we just took out the books used to make him tall enough to jump. In addition, the bigger problem is that the seat's lip is taller in this one and wider, so it is much harder for him to reach toys.
Front toys:
On the rainforest jumperoo, there is a green bar with three animals hanging or attached to it- an elephant facing the wrong way, a red bird, and monkey. He enjoyed playing with the bird and the monkey a lot. The bird swung with his bounces, so it kept him especially occupied. On the Luv-U one, there is a hippo rattle that he can spin around. But it isn't nearly as interesting or interactive for him as the bird and the monkey. Our son does like to twirl the red bird and the discs on the giraffe bar of the Luv-U, but watching them is uninteresting for him. Lastly, instead of the hippo rattle, the rainforest has a smaller colorful rattle that our son played with much more than he plays with the hippo! Partly it might be the colors, but mostly I think it is because he could reach it better. They both have lights that react to the music/sounds- rainforest has 3 and luv-u has 2.
Back left toys:
Our son loves the teether on the Luv-U. The string makes it hard for him to grab on his own yet (4.5 months), so I have to give it to him and/or hold it in his mouth. The Rainforest has an insect(?) on a plastic cord that is much easier for our baby to grab and hold onto. On the Luv-U, behind the teether is another rattle. Rainforest's rattle is very similar.
Back right toys:
They both have color wheels that babies can spin. The Luv-U also has a toy where you can push beads back and forth, and a little mirror. I bet our son will love pushing them when he gets older. The mirror interests him, but he can't see himself in it as it is practically facing the ceiling. The Rainforest has a pop up tiger whose mechanism probably is too advanced for our baby and it has a rainbow bar that he loves to look at with a sun rattle.
Seat:
The Luv-U is easier to get him into and out of and is more roomy. The rainforest swivels much much easier- he was already moving around at 3.5 months. The Luv-U barely moves at all with him kicking off and jumping. I prefer the Rainforest seat since he can move himself to different toys if they catch his interest.
Music:
I love the Rainforest's music. The Luv-U is also nice, but the rainforest has my favorite music of any baby toy I've heard! The Luv-U is more sensitive to the baby's movements and makes sounds for every movement he makes. Some people might love this, I get sick of the boinging, the fake baby laughter, etc. I have grown to like the music for the Luv-U, but I miss the Caribbean sounds of the Rainforest!
So why the high rating? It isn't nearly as good as the Rainforest Jumperoo IMO, but it is still a great activity toy for babies! If you don't have a choice, get this. If you do, get the Rainforest Jumperoo!

EDIT on 7/10/13
I have another son who is now 10 months old. We had the same reactions with him to both jumperoos. He enjoyed more of the toys on the Rainforest Jumperoo and we found the toys on the Luv U one to be a bit far away when our sons were younger. Our little one is and has always been in the 97% for height and I appreciated that we could use the Rainforest earlier with him. With the Luv U we ended up having to use books under his feet for quite a few months. Now that he is taller, his feet are flat on the ground on the highest setting of the rainforest, but at this age we rarely (never) use the Jumperoo anyway since he would rather explore on his own.
I stand by my earlier review that both are great, the Rainforest was better for us.

I spent HOURS reading reviews for so many other jumperoos and with all the negative comments I heard about so many others, I was really hesitant to buy one at all. But the Fisher Price ones seemed to have the least amount of problems and when they did, Fisher Price seemed keen to fix them. So I knew I wanted a Fisher Price. And since this is their newest model, I figured many of the problems with the other jumperoos would have been fixed. As far as I can tell, they were for the most part.

1. the toys are not overwhelming. they are simplistic and keep my daughter entertained endlessly.
2. The music is not overly annoying and when set on the low sound level, can't really even be heard once away from the music.
3. I love the bouncy music feature that makes noises and giggles, etc. when she bounces. She hasn't really caught on yet, but it keeps her entertained.
4. The red bird came with some paint scrapes on her face but I tried to scratch at them with my finger nail and nothing came off, so I wasn't worried about paint chips like some of the other jumpers had.
5. The colors are great, but not overwhelming. They are perfect for her and keep her attention.
6. The springs are fabric covered and so far have held up through LOTS of enthusiastic jumping.
7. The base seems really stable. When she bounces the arms barely move and the base not at all.
8. My only complaint - the leaves from which the rhino and monkey hang are supposed to SNAP in but I couldn't get them to and she is able, when she pulls hard enough, to pull the leaves actually out of the arms and get to the toys that way. I wish they had a better locking mechanism so they couldn't do this.
9. One other complaint - the hanging rhino and monkey catch her interest and she tries to pull at them but can't really hold on to them. I almost wish they were on a stretchier cord so she could get to them when she wants to.
10. Ironically, her favorite toy is the plain teether. She spends more time with that than any other. It is nice that it has a teether on it so she can have one toy that is sort of relaxing and doesn't make noise etc. if she ever just needs a break.
11. There is a small tray for snacks - some of the other reviews thought this was pointless and took up too much room, enough room for another toy instead. But this tray is very small and doesn't keep any other toys from being attached. I am glad there are no other toys on this tray because then I think it would be overwhelming.

All in all, I love this jumper. We haven't had any problems after one month. Certainly no issues like so many of the other jumpers have. She stays endlessly entertained and would stay in her jumper all day if I were to let her. If any of the Fisher Price issues come up I will update my review, but for the tme being, we love it and have had no problems!

My daughter is 4m old and stands 24.75 inches tall. Just so parents know she cannot touch the ground even on the jumperoo's lowest level (they don't list a minimum height on the box anywhere, but I just put a pillow under her feet). Also so you get a perspective of size, my daughter weighs 13.5 lbs. and there is a sufficient amount of extra space in the seat for her to grow into. she does love being bounced in it and loves the rattle toy. She is still taking in the other toys as they are slightly advanced for a baby her age. I bought this toy because she likes to be upright or sitting most of the time and I put her in it while I fold laundry or do dishes (be sure you keep your baby in eye sight). She will look at all the stuff and occupy herself for about 15 minutes. The toys and activities are cute and capture her attention and I find the jumperoo to be sturdy.
*Update: My daughter is now 6 months old and can touch the floor in the jumperoo (on the lowest level), still has plenty of room to grow in the seat and loves playing with the other toys. She has figured out how they all work now. I love that she was able to grow and develop with this toy. She will play for 15-20 minutes at a time.

My 7 month old granddaughter absolutely loves her Luv U Zoo Jumperoo! She jumps so high, that her feet come completely off the floor. (See the photos I posted of her in it.) I think this might have been my best baby product purchase yet! At her weight of 19 pounds, the lowest setting is just right for her. I don't think it would work well for a smaller baby, unless you put a pillow on the floor. It is very sturdy and has several toys to keep her occupied....when she isn't jumping. My only complaint would be that it was fairly difficult to put together. I'm a 59 yr. old grandmother, but I managed to assemble it without help. It just took a little time.

We researched for various swings before buy this one, and at the end we decided this one was the one we were going to purchase. We don't regret at all. Our little monkey is so happy with it. I couldn't believe that he would enjoy this toy so much. He loves jumping on it to the point that he put his "sad lip" when we take him out.

We first used it when my son was 4 months old, since he could hold head steady when upright. My son is very large baby (21 pounds at 4 months check up and 70 cm) and one of the first things I was worried about was if the seat would be too small for him, or he would grow it up very soon. But it is pretty wide and still fits in it without a problem.

The jumperoo has 2 buttons, one for sound or music, and another one for off-and music volume (2 different settings). My son is annoyed by the music one, but he loves the sounds. He also likes very much the lights of the two flowers on the sides.
He doesn't play very much with the toys, they are average, and one of them, the mirror, I have never seen him using it. He loves the 2 toys hanging and try to reach them all the time.

The fabric on the seat is removable (easy enough) and it can be washed.

We are happy that we got this one over the baby Einstein one. We have a friend that bought that one (the Einstein) and it barely jumps compare to the jumperoo. And since our son enjoy jumping the most -and I think that's the purpose when you buy this kind of toy- I am sure that we made the right decision.

My 6 month old daughter LOVES this thing. I have to take her out of it when she tires herself out. It was super easy to put together no tools required (except to open battery door), it entertains her forever, she laughs and babbles non stop, wants more bouncing after she's out, it's great I can get the dishes done, bottles made, ready in the morning, etc and she's happy the whole time. She had outgown her bouncy chair (not size wise but boredom) so I was worried that this wouldn't last long but after seeing her in it I'm not concerned, it seems entertaining enough for an older baby too. It's height adjustable and I can tell by her position in the seat now that there's plenty of room to grow. The colors are nice, not too bright or busy. The music isn't annoying. The toys are simple enough that she can enjoy them without becoming overwhelmed. It's stable, doesn't shift around on my wood floors. I like this style better than those with a solid base, I think it teaches balance better.

The only downsides I can think of: the monkey and rhino that hang from the leaves are just out of her grasp but she's very interested in them and wants to grab them. It'd be nice if they were on a stretchy cord or something, but as it is it's just something for her to look forward to getting her hands on in a few months. Also the 360 motion is probably not something she can do yet. When I turn her it takes me a little bit of muscle, the fabric of the chair cover makes the spinning not as easy as if it were plastic on plastic. She can move it a little bit so I think once she has a better plant on the floor (right now her toes just touch) it'll be fine.

Overall- I love this jumper, she loves it, it was well worth the price (less than others) and I would definitely recommend it!

I got this because I spend most of my time downstairs with my son, and there's no doorway to hang his doorway jumper on. It's so great. Easy assembly (I did it all myself with no help). Before I could get him in the seat good he was reaching for the hanging toys. He's not even 6 months yet (but he LOVES to jump), so I had to place a pillow underneath his feet, but he didn't care at all. He started hopping and having a great time! Within 30 minutes, he had fallen asleep in the jumper!!! I let him nap, and when he woke up, he smiled at me and started jumping again. :) Best purchase ever!

When we got this Jumperoo, the seat was defective as it did not lock into place, and every time you lift the baby out, the seat comes out with the baby. After about four months of using it this way, despite the defect, the babies became strong enough to pull out the toys, breaking the plastic. This seems much more cheaply made than the other Fisher Price Jumperoos, which we had nothing but good experiences with. Finally, Closeout Finder is a terrible Amazon Seller, as they DO NOT respond to requests for exchanges or refunds. It is like they are a fraudulent company.

**UPDATE - I called Fisher Price, and this product form Closeout Finder is missing the Product Number, Date Code, Manufacturing Code, etc. I believe that Closeout Finder is selling Factory Rejects. That is unfortunate because when the infant broke off the giraffe, the three small discs came off and are CHOKING HAZARDS.

My little guy has been wearing out this jumperoo for the last 2 months. He started in it at 4 months with a few books under his feet on the lowest setting and he's now moved up to level two. He will bounce in this toy for a full hour if I let him (no, I don't leave him in there for an hour). I love that he continues to discover different parts of the toy as he grows. At 4 months the loved the color wheel and spinning gator. Now at 6 months he grabs the teether and bangs on everything with it. He's also found the colored disks that slide along the rail and is mesmerized by them.

As much as he loves this toy, I was horribly disappointed when I pulled him out of it the other day and noticed a rip in the seat. The red patterned fabric at the back of the seat was fraying away from the brown fabric. Today I went on the fisher-price site and found their link for customer service. I pulled up an agent on chat and told her my issue. She apologized and said she'll send me a new seat pad right away. What great customer service! I'd normally take a star off my rating for something that has an issue after just 3 months, but the little guy loves this thing and Fisher-Price is providing good service with no hassle so I'm leaving it as a 5 star rating. I'd happily buy this over and over again.

My daughter loves this thing! My baby loves up and down motion and when she was a newborn, I would hold her while sitting and gently bouncing on an exercise ball to calm her but it was killing my back. She's big and very strong so her pediatrician suggested getting her a jumper at about 2 months old since she was already trying to sit up. I started putting her in it as soon as she developed good head control and could sit up while being supported which was about 2 and 1/2 months old. She wasn't quite tall enough in the beginning so I would place a pillow under her little feet and she would mostly just sit and look around. Now, she just turned 4 months old and is 26 inches tall. Her tippy toes finally touch the floor and she cannot be stopped. She loves to squeal and JUMP JUMP JUMP JUMP! She's getting plenty of exercise, loves playing with the various spinning toys, and gets so excited when the music plays.

I found it very easy to put together and take apart when needed. My only complaint is that it takes up quite a bit of space but it's still manageable. I would definitely recommend this if your baby loves to move and jump.
