Both my daughter loves this “saucer,” as my 3 yr. old has dubbed it. We got it when my youngest was 4 mo. and she loved the colors and toys right away. We did have to stuff a blanket around her middle and put a folded one under her feet at first, but only for a few weeks as she gained strength and figured out how to “stand” in it. I thought at first that she was too short, but now I think it was more about her putting weight on her legs. She is in the 50th percentile for height and weight, so a small baby might need something under their feet at first.

The toys are even more interesting to her now that she can manipulate them better. They make satisfying sounds and react well to her touch. Only the “piano” is electronic and takes batteries, and she could care less about it so far because she doesn’t understand buttons yet. My 3 yr. old daughter loves to play along with the lion puppet – she can make the baby laugh with it! I love that it has loops to attach your own toys if you want. One thing that my baby doesn’t love is the penguin. You can push it down to make the balls below it spin, and for some reason my daughter is scared of the sound this makes. She cries every time we do it! I think she is just weird and sensitive to noise, so your baby probably won’t have the same problem. We just don’t push it down, and she is fine (she can’t do it herself). She still smiles at the penguin, so no hard feelings, I guess. The panda teeter-totter makes a squeaking metal sound sometimes (like a smaller version of the real thing) but this doesn’t bother her.

We haven’t used the rocking feature yet because she isn’t stable enough. The stabilizers work well to keep everything level. To “lay flat to store” you just pop the three different colored legs out from the blue base and white top, then nest the top and bottom together. It is fairly flat (minus the toys sticking out) and it’s not extremely difficult, but you wouldn’t want to do it every day. The initial assembly was pretty easy, too.

Dangerous. Flips easily. Should be recalled., March 31, 2010

This review is from: Baby Einstein Around The World Discovery Center (Baby Product)

I would have not purchased this toy had I read even one review that it flipped easily. My twin is a dancer and tossed the entire unit on it’s side today, cracking his head on the hardwood floor and leaving a gigantic bruise on his forehead. He is ten months old and twenty two pounds. Believe me, I watch every move these babies make–do not even bathe until my husband is home to watch them. They are always in the same room with me. I just want to be sure you understand that this did not happen fron lack of being properly looked after. I’m so nervous now–am e-mailing the company and waiting for a reply. But for now, please don’t buy this for your babies. The thought of another baby coming out of this thing makes me sick and, to be honest, quite angry. Please buy something else. Anything else. I’ll post a follow up after hearing what they say. Today is March 31st, 2010.

I bought this item for my daughter based on pictures online. I wish now I had found one in a store to actually see in person how cheaply made this toy is. My daughter is only 5 months old now and has been using this for a few weeks. After two weeks- and she obviously isn’t very strong at this point- toys are falling off. We are going to have to do what another reviewer suggested and super glue the items in place. She does enjoy this toy and I love seeing her use it- I just wish I had bought something more sturdy that didn’t involve me having to resort to super glue or duct tape. Waste of money pretty much.
