Evenflo Delux Developmental Circus Activity Center Review

Evenflo Delux Developmental Circus Activity CenterAre you looking for an affordable entertainment center for your newborn? Well, consider the Evenflo Delux Developmental Circus Activity center as an option that is filled with many fun and safe activities.

Here is one economical reason to purchase this activity center. All of the Evenflo’s fun zones are battery free. Your infant is able to play with the spinning wheel, twirl the picture carousal, pull and tug on all the springy cute animal characters without any batteries attached to the entertainment center.

But, having no batteries means no musical songs to go along with the fun activities. As a parent, I get enough baby songs from all the other toys my son plays with. So having this entertainment center without music is a welcome break.

The Activity Center is a great tool for your baby to start jumping and moving around because the seat that holds the baby is able to rotate 360 degrees. Great if your baby is learning to reach for objects and different play zone activity.

As your baby grows the Evenflo Activity Center will grow with them because the legs have three adjustable heights, until your baby gets too big (over the max height limit of 30 inches). So parents can plan on their babies playing with this entertainments center for a while.

Let’s not forget the Evenflo Excersaucer is one of the safest jumping systems for your baby. With no mounted ropes or dangling strings, you can rest assure your baby is safe. The whole entertainment center is sturdy and has good weight, so when your baby is jumping around you don’t have to worry about the whole activity center tipping over. The downside about having sturdy and safe legs is the Activity center is less of a jumperoo. If your baby seems to be on the active side then you should probably look into a non-stationary style jumperoo like the Fisher-Price Rainforest set.

The safety also extends to all the toys. The springy toys around the play zones are safe for babies who are eager to bite on them. These play zones can serve as another set teether toys to help babies comfort themselves as their teeth are coming out.

Overall, the Evenflo Delux Developmental activity center is great to put your baby in because they can entertain themselves for hours in a safe environment that will help them achieve their important developmental milestones.

How to encourage your little one to jump in their jumperoo?

Not all infants will instantly start jumping when they are first placed in the jumperoo. Babies need sometime to adjust to their new surroundings, but once they are comfortable they will be more settle and start playing with all the fun activities of the jumperoo.

My son when he was first placed in his Rainforest jumperoo, all he did was play with the toy pieces that were right in front of him. After a few go around he start realizing he could use his toes and push off and spring up. In a couple of days, he became a pro and hopped like a bunny.

For those parents who are having more difficulties getting their newborn to jump on the jumperoo, you can try some these suggestions from other moms.

  1. A potential reason for babies not wanting jump in their jumperoo is their toes and feet are not properly touching the ground. So, parents could place towels, cushion, pillow, playmats, and books below their feet to give them further support.
  2. Teach your baby to jump by jumping yourself. This might sound silly, but babies love mimicking the actions of adults. Once they see a jumping mom or dad they might be encourage to try it out.
