The assembly of the Rainforest jumperoo is straightforward and easy. The parts easily snaps into place and the baby will be up and bouncing as quickly as 15 minutes.  The jumperoo has three sturdy posts for holding up the jumperoo seat. These posts are stable and solid, so parents can be confident their baby is safe when they start jumping. Each post has a spring that is connected to the jumperoo seat. By having three springs in the design, babies are given more freedom to jump and swing or rock from side to side. This is great for more babies who are more active.

Foldable Jumperooo

For those space conscious parents, this jumperoo frame is a good size, but does not take as much space as other activity centers. The jumperoo might be too big to move on a regular basis, but it has a folding option if you need to stash it away for sometime without having to disassemble the whole jumperoo.

The jumperoo has a comfortable cloth seat that is easily removable. This is great because babies will be babies and make a mess of things and this machine washable cloth seat makes cleaning easy for parents.

The jumperoo will exercise his legs when he jumps, but it doesn’t stop there. The jumperoo has soft hanging animals for your newborn to reach for.

How long does a baby usually play on the jumperoo for?

The jumperoo is a great source of exercise for your baby. The best gauge when jumperoo play time is too long will be your baby. Your baby will probably cry or yell to get out or simply stops jumping because they are too tired for more.  At that point, it’s time to give them a break and let him play on his tummy and playmate. My son typically plays in his Rainforest jumperoo for 30 minutes before he gets tired or bored and he usually plays for 3-5 times a days on the jumperoo.

What age is good for a baby to start using the jumperoo?

With any baby toy that parents introduce to their newborn, safety is the highest priority.  The introduction of the jumperoo to your baby is the same. Parents should wait until their baby can hold their head up without any assistance for a good 10-20 minutes. If their neck is not strong enough or if they get too tired then they are not ready for the jumperoo. Typically, newborns are able to reach this milestone around 3-4 months.

For the parents that we asked, 4 to 6 months is the typical age they start using the jumperoo for their baby to play. There are many different variety of jumperoos from companies like Fisher Price, Baby Einstein, EvenFlo and Bright Starts. These are all great companies to look for jumperoos and their track record for safety is of the highest standard.
