Perfect For Our Two-Month Old, September 23, 2010
This review is from: Bright Starts Ingenuity Automatic Bouncer, Bella Vista (Baby Product)

After spending way too much money trying to find something that would actually keep our baby happy when we needed to set her down, I finally hit a home run when I found this. It’s the one piece of baby equipment that actually calms her and that she likes being in without fussing.

Some of the other reviewers said that this doesn’t bounce enough, but I think it’s just perfect. It’s a nice, gentle, rhythmic, up-and-down bounce. (Note that if you saw this on display in a store and turned it on it wouldn’t really bounce; it needs the weight of the baby in it to work.) Every baby is different, and maybe when our baby is older and heavier it won’t be as effective, but so far for us this is just right. I will say though, as others have mentioned, there doesn’t seem to be much difference between the “gentle” and “normal” bounce settings.

One design feature I like about this bouncer is that the frame wires go around the top, so that when she’s bouncing her feet are moving more than her head. The other bouncer we tried had the frame wires at the bottom so that when we manually bounced the baby (with our feet or hands) her head would be bouncing up and down more than her feet. I think this way is better.

Other design features I like: The music is very nice, it’s calming and has good sound quality. The other bouncer we tried had a plastic toy bar that you had to remove every time you put the baby in and out; this has a hinged toy bar which you simply move back when lifting the baby in and out (and being hinged means we can move the toys into the line of sight of the baby). This bouncer also includes extra padding which is super soft and cushions the baby really well (and can be removed if it makes your baby too warm or she just doesn’t like it).

If you have a newborn I would highly recommend trying this Bright Starts Automatic Bouncer. It’s reasonably priced and has been a wonderful thing for our baby–and her parents!

Ok Bouncer…Needs Some Improvements, July 7, 2010
By 

This review is from: Bright Starts Ingenuity Automatic Bouncer, Bella Vista (Baby Product)

I purchased this bouncer for my newborn and I am not very impressed. It looks great and seems comfortable but the bouncing is not very strong and it eats thru batteries.

Pros:

– Soft and comfortable for a newborn

– Machine washable cover (toy bar is spot clean)

– Toy bar moves back easily to remove baby from bouncer

– Toy bar is sturdy

– Very nice ocean sound that my baby loves

Cons:

– Not much difference between the 2 bounce settings. Not a strong enough bounce for my baby to enjoy

– Toys on toy bar are lacking

– Eats thru batteries

– The songs end and start abruptly instead of a smooth transition

Overall, I’m not to impressed. I would not purchase this item again. It is a great concept and I hope that this company or another company will try to better this product. It could be one of the best baby products out there is done properly.

Excellent Bouncer!, April 26, 2011

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Bright Starts Ingenuity Automatic Bouncer, Bella Vista (Baby Product)

We love this bouncer! If I were to make a list of must have baby products, this would be on it for sure. Why we love it:

*It does actually bounce by itself, which puts it far above the other bouncer we purchased initially

*The bolster does an excellent job of supporting baby’s head and making him feel snuggled and secure

*The fabric is soft and cleans well

*The strap that secures the baby in the bouncer is soft and comfortable, and does not dig into baby’s legs

*The nature sounds are very soothing– help baby remain asleep

The one downside (and not one we experienced) is that the bouncer works with the weight of the baby to create motion– our son was about 11 lbs. when we began using the bouncer, and it worked well but it works even better now that he is heavier.

Judging from other reviews, if a baby is too light, the bouncing motion is not sufficient to soothe a fussy baby.
