Jumpers, Exersaucers, & Activity Centers

Jumpers! Exersaucers! Activity Centers! Sounds exhausting if you ask me but good thing it isn’t for us boring grown ups. It’s for our children that are full of energy and ready to let it out. They are fun, colorful, have cool toys and most times, make sounds. This is another way to get some hands free time while baby enjoys it as well. A quick rundown, jumpers = baby can jump up and down, exersaucer = has a domed bottom and is not bouncy, activity centers = stationed play area (no bouncing over here). Most seats on these toys spin 360 degrees and are very stimulating.

Here are some of the best jumpers, exersaucers, & activity centers:

This was the jumper of choice for my daughter when she was a baby. She absolutely loved this thing and spent a good amount of time in it. It was my go to when I needed to keep her occupied and or stimulate her. It has great bounce and plenty of features to keep baby happy. I must be very comfortable as well because she often fell asleep in it. My complaint against it would be that it takes up a lot of space but it is very easy to keep clean. Overall I would recommend!
