Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer

A mom's review of the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer seat.


Review: Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer

Published 16:17 pm

My husband bought the Rainforest Bouncer for our newborn son when he was about a week old. It didn't take long at all for his aunt to put it together for him as the directions were straightforward and not overly complicated. He has loved it ever since (and he's 17 months now and too big for it but he is still enthralled with the music bar!)

Right away he was soothed by the gentle motion and vibration features and captivated by the waterfall, lights and dangling jungle animals on the music bar that fits across the seat. When he was a few months old he realized that kicking his legs could activate the music and lights and would kick like there was no tomorrow! It was hilarious to watch him have so much fun, laughing and bouncing as he discovered cause and effect. It also helped him develop motor skills as he learned to reach for objects, and we also used it to help teach him some new vocabulary (animals names, sounds, directions like "spin the monkey," "peek-a-boo frog,", "see the toucan!" etc).

Then when he was ready to settle down he'd drink his bottle of milk in the seat or watch a baby DVD and nestle down for a nap. Many times he fell asleep in the bouncer and you could tell he was extremely comfortable. We actually used it a time or two during an ear infection or cold virus to keep him propped up-it was the only place he'd sleep when his crib wasn't an option.

I like that there's a volume button on the music, and the settings can be changed to play music or jungle sounds either continuously or only when the baby activates them by moving. The cover is easily removable and machine-washable so it's very simple to clean. I can't think of too many cons regarding this seat, unless it's that I wish it held more weight; our son was quite heavy and tall for his age so he outgrew it pretty quick.

The fact that it takes four "D" batteries is also moderately inconvenient and expensive but overall I think we only had to change them twice during the time we used it-once because we forgot and left the vibration feature on all night. As long as it's turned off when not in use the batteries seem to hold out for a good long while (I'm sure it also depends on the quality of batteries purchased too.)

The bright colors may also turn off some parents wishing to have it blend in with the home décor, but after all, it's designed for a baby and they love vibrant colors. I highly recommend this seat to any new parent!
