When shopping for an exersaucer, I came across the Bright Starts Around We Go Activity Station. I read all the reviews thoroughly before purchasing this one, and it has turned out to be one of the best investments we've made. My daughter was 5.5 mo when I was looking for something that my daughter can be in vertically after feeding to minimize spit ups and to also allow me to grab something quick to eat. This exersaucer has accomplished both and much more! My daughter is very active with her legs and does not like to be confined to car seat, high chair, glider, swing, but she absolutely loves this unit and wants to be in it even 1.5 mo later.

Here's what we like about the unit:

1. We like the fact that the baby can "walk around" the activity center so she doesn't feel like she's restricted and confined. I think this bit of freedom and control is what keeps her wanting to go in.
2. Unlike the traditional exersaucer where the child just sits in the middle and rotates or bounces up and down which makes really loud and annoying noises because of the plastic tubes, the Bright Starts is more quiet with just the sound of the wheels. The wheels move very smoothly on the tile floor.
3. The keyboard with the 3 categories of sounds (silly sound, short musical tune and piano key) is really great so the baby does not get bored. You have to flip the pages, but the baby eventually gets it and will flip the pages on their own. This makes it more versatile than the other exersaucers I've seen.
4. My baby is teething, so the two butterfly-looking thing are great for her to chew on (though the short one is a little more difficult for her to reach, but the tall one you can bend).

Our kid is five-months-old and immediately loves this thing. I'll tell you all about it.

First things first, for the people who complained about the base not coming together well. There shouldn't be a gap if you put it together right. Instead of trying to snap it together and then inserting the screws, insert the screws at the top and then try to snap the base together a section at a time. Comes together great and the seat rotates well and smoothly. Putting the whole thing together is time consuming but not really hard. I did it myself late at night and devoted about 45 minutes to it.

Once the baby got in it, he could make a circle around it in a couple of days. His feet touch the ground fine at 27.5 inches tall. He likes to play with the toys some, although I'm sure he'll appreciate them more when he gets bigger. He really loves turning the seat sideways and making laps around. I've never seen a baby have this much fun with any toy. This was a fantastic investment.

If I have a complaint at all it's the packaging. The package was shipped in the product's carton alone and the box arrived very damaged and there was a scuff on the side of the ring that holds the seat. That's not the product's fault. That's Amazon's shipping.

EDIT: We've now had this toy since my son was 5-months-old. he was able to use it and loved it right off the bat. He'll be one next week and managed to catapult himself out of the seat and nearly land on his head. It scared the life out of me. Make sure, when they're big enough, you take the seat off and use it only as an activity table.

My son was using this from when he was around 4 months old until around 9 months. He liked the different variations of toys that are on the table. The last 2 months or so of him having this, he would run around the table chasing my husband and i - it was absolutely adorable!

That said, this thing is pretty large, especially if you want to give your child the ability to go all the way around (you need a lot of space for it). We have a small living room and found it a little annoying to keep moving the coffee table over so our son would have room.

The seat portion does come out leaving just the table which is great except that the table is very wobbely so my son (now 10 months old) constantly pushes it over. Maybe when he's a little older.

Bottom line, it's great if you have a lot of space, but if you don't, then a regular exersaucer may be a better solution.

My LO is 7 months old and larger than the average baby so it's hard to find toys that will fit for her and that she likes. She loves this! I see her using it for the months to come until she's walking.

This product may be harmful to your baby's walking abilities in the future. Let me explain.

We loved this product. Kept baby occupied, she was walking inside it and in no time running round and round. Now that she is almost 2 and walks and runs on her own, one thing we noticed is that she is doing it all on her toes. Rarely stepping all the way down with her entire foot. Now, this sometimes happens with kids and it's not something to get too crazy about, they eventually outgrow this but this toy most likely had an effect on this condition as was explained to us by multiple physicians and child progress medics.

What happens is ... child in this toy leans forward and pushes forward with their toes. This registers to the brain as normal activity and so they get used to going forward on their toes. If your child uses this toy and you see them fully stepping down on entire foot, then maybe it's not an issue but be careful and make sure that they are not using only their toes to push forward whether they are walking or running in it.

All of these jumpers and walkers are great for fun, but what was explained to us by few professionals is that most of the time all these toys have a negative effect. Nothing to go crazy about as millions of babies use it and ultimately they are fine, but had we known that this toy may have such an effect on our daughter, even the slightest possibility, we would probably avoid it.
