Where is the Fisher Price Rainforest Jumperoo made?

rainforest_jumperoo_made_inThe Fisher Price is a great jumperoo and when you find that it was made in China, you will be pleasantly surprised as I was.
Typically, when you get a new toy, they have some type of flaws in that you might like. For instance, I’ve noticed some might be a little dirty here or there or the cloth have long threads that were not cut properly.  But when I opened this Fisher Price Rainforest jumperoo, it look well packaged.  So, I guess Fisher Price paid a little more attention to quality control when manufacturing this product overseas.

jumperoo, packaging, rain forest, fisher price

When you purchase an item online, you generally have an idea how big the items because it’s included in the item description.  But, the size of the packaging box is not always known. In all the pictures of the jumperoos, you think the packaging to hold all the parts will take a lot space, but it’s actually nicely pack to fit in a 22″ wide x 24 ½” tall x 7 ¼” deep box.  This a very manageable size for those moms who can easily place the box in the trunk of their cars or on a shopping cart.

But if you ordering from Amazon, you don’t even need to bother because it arrives at your doorsteps.  The box is 25lbs, so it’s not too heavy as well.  Here are some snapshots of my box that I received from Amazon.

The Benefits of a Jumperoo for your baby

Jumperoo for babyI love seeing my son grow and mature right before my eyes and recently he reached the milestone where he can hold his head up steadily with great neck control. He is only 3 months 15 days old, weighs 16lbs, and 20 inches tall.

As eager parents, we wanted to help him reach more of his milestones while having fun in the process. We found that a jumperoo can be a useful tool for his early age development because they promote motor skills, sound training, all the while providing the baby a safe environment with less parent supervision.

For me, taking care of the little one on my own and having a jumperoo can be a lifesaver. While my son is playing safely in the jumperoo, I can take a quick bathroom break, do a little cooking, or do some other chores on the side while watching over him. I’m confident the jumperoo will provide a safe local environment were my son can rotate and grab items because my son will have a limited distance to reach. According to the manufacturer’s requirement, parents should not use the jumperoo if your baby is able to hold their head up unassisted. Also, parents should stop putting their baby in the jumperoo if your child is able to climb out and walk because of potential safety hazards for both scenarios.

Most jumperoos have plenty of objects for your baby to reach and grasp. These objects will build their hand eye coordination as they are learning to coordinate with new motor skills.  Some will have music to go along with their playing. The sound will help them create an action and response awareness. For instance, the jumperoo that I have will play music when he jumps or when he rolls a particular toy. As they become more familiar with the sound they can learn to activate the sound they like most.

Well, the main function of a jumperoo is to get your baby to start developing their leg movement. By placing your baby in an erected up position, it will give them a new perspective away from the ground.  The jumperoo will give them an opportunity to start mimicking the people that they see and hoping start using their leg muscle in the process.

Overall, a jumperoo is a great item for parents to consider because of the educational benefits, the fun, and the safety it can provide. Give it a try and your baby will love you for it.

Does the rainforest jumperoo fold up for nice and easy storage?

Releasing the latch of the Jumperoo

The short answer is no. The rainforest jumperoo has the option to disconnect the legs from the base of jumperoo. Parents would need to look for the frame release button on the three support legs for the jumperoo carrier.

At the bottom of the legs are the base tubes. The base tubes have a release button that when pressed will un-latch the legs.  See picture below for further clarification on instructions. Once the one leg segment is detached, the jumperoo can be folded inward and tucked away.

Does the Rainforest jumperoo seat help babies that can’t sit up unassisted?

Jumperoo_for_BabyThe Fisher Price Rainforest jumperoo can accommodate babies that can’t sit up unassisted. However, the manufacturer’s safety recommendation suggest the jumperoo to be “Use only for a child who is able to hold head up unassisted and who is not able to climb out and walk.”

The design of the jumperoo has two options to help babies who need help in holding their head up.

  1. Babies can lean forward against the jumperoo activity area. There is enough space for them to use their hands to give themselves support. My son likes to rest his arm on the jumperoo and rest his head on his arms after he gets tired from playtime.
  2. Babies can lean backward against the red frog seat. The seat has a raised backrest that will provide extra support. The back support is padded all around and adds extra comfort for babies.

Does the red frog seat from the Rainforest Jumperoo come out for washing?

Yes, the red frog seat can be easily removed and placed back on the Rainforest jumperoo. To remove you need to un-hook the washable seat from the jumperoo base. The red frog seat is machine washable in the cold water using the delicate cycle. Then tumble dry low or the gentle cycle. You can also hang dry the seat if you there is not an urgent need to use it.

The seat retains its beautiful red color after multiple washings and you don’t have to get too worried if your baby makes a mess of the place.  Read up some more information on this great jumperoo!
