CONS: Springs in the legs sometimes snap out of place (easy to fix, but annoying), no 'kickstand' to stop the Exersaucer from wobbling around
BEST USE: Around 6 months in age
4 MONTHS: We bought this when our son was 4 months old, it took him another month to really grow into it. Had it come with some stoppers (old school exersaucers used to have them) it could have stayed still and been less scary, though he adjusted quickly.
6 MONTHS: Ideal age, able to interact with toys, but because child is not really mobile - wouldn't object much to hanging out and playing. Would play for 30 minute clips easily.
8 MONTHS: Nearly obsolete. While my son was still within the weight limit, he really didn't like to sit still. He might hang in there for 5-10 minutes, but no longer.
12 MONTHS: Gave it away.
RECOMMENDATION: Worth the investment. It provided a safe, entertaining place for my son to play if I had to run to the bathroom or couldn't closely monitor his playtime because I was preparing dinner or answering the phone. My son loved jumping up and down in it and it was his favorite toy for a while. Once he started standing and walking, he didn't want to be restricted and would fight me as I'd try to put him into the walker (however, he liked to stand and play with it - I used it as a blockade between a wall and sofa).
|Length: 2:57 Mins|
The bad: At 6 months old and only 70 percentile in height, he is (according to the instructions) already supposed to be on the highest height setting so that he's on tippytoe not flat footed. So that seems rediculous, he would outgrow on height almost immediately. Also, because he's still pretty lightweight it seems top-heavy if I put it on the highest setting AND it also seems uncomfortable because then he is "hanging" from his hips too much and not actually practicing standing -- so actually i put it on the middle setting and just sit right next to it and watch very very carefully to avoid any chance of him accidental flipping it. (He can definitely really get it rocking and rolling!)
***If you call customer service at Evenflo, they will mail you (for free) the 3 little red support stands to go on the bottom to make it sturdier. I would think they would just include them, but whatever.
I must admit, my daughter LOVES this toy. She's a large baby and is having trouble rolling over even now at 6 months old despite tons of floor time and 'exercise'. We bought this around 4.5 months, and I think the Exersaucer gave her a taste of physical freedom that she hasn't been able to enjoy on the floor, and reinvigorated her sense of excitement about using her body. She is very good at standing up and bouncing, even if she can't roll yet. She smiles for joy every time we put her in, and mischievously bounces to her hearts content. She loves the little doo-dads all around the edges and turns and reaches for them. I've seen her really start thriving physically since buying this. The first time we put her in she only lasted 5 minutes, and rarely lasts more than 15-20, but she really loves every minute she's in there.
It's huge and takes up tons of space in our little condo, but it is worth it. I am a hippie mom, and an Exersaucer convert. Let your child have this guilty pleasure if you're like me and on the fence!
SUGGESTIONS: We read this from another review...if your child is young...all EVENFLO and ask them to send you the "stabilizers" that attach to the bottom of this...it will help it rock and roll a lot less when your baby is younger! Also, they will try to get you to pay for them OR convince you they are not needed...THAT'S TERRIBLE! Great product BUT that part isn't great! The parts probably cost them about 50 cents IF THAT! Just call and say I Need you to send me the stabilizers to make this product safe...they will!!!
