[One design flaw: there is an insert that fits down into the seat -- essentially it is another seat with padding around the top that is intended to provide extra support for younger kids, to keep them from wobbling around too much. It velcros into the main seat to keep it secure. However, once you remove the insert (which I assume you would do once your kid gets bigger), 3 of 5 velcro strips on the main seat -- like, where your kid's tummy, back, and crotch sit -- have the scratchy side of the velcro exposed. OUCH. If you have a small/skinny child and plan to use the seat insert for the life of the product, this may not be an issue. But seriously I don't know why they didn't pay more attention to this detail!] This annoyed me, but did not keep me from keeping the unit.
I was trying to choose between this and the GoPod...
We have a Jumparoo at home, which my daughter (currently 4 mo) loves, but we are traveling a lot and I wanted something portable/packable (like, in a suitcase) that will grow with her and be usable for a longer period of time -- basically until she walks.
I purchased both this activity center and the GoPod so I could do a direct, side-by-side comparison. It was a very tough decision, because I loved this activity center -- it is interactive and springy, much like the Jumparoo. She would have more fun in it, for now... But ultimately I decided to return this one in favor of the GoPod (deluxe) unit. Here's why...
My reasons for NOT choosing this unit (which may not be important to you):
- GoPod supports slightly taller child (an inch or two further from ground at max height).
- GoPod supports slightly heavier child at max weight.
- GoPod is much lighter (aluminum frame) than this unit and it folds down much smaller -- to the size of a child's camp chair (whereas this unit is closer to the size of a pack and play).
What I love about this product (and wish the GoPod had):
- It is interactive
- It is springy/jumpy and my daughter loves it just as much as a jumparoo
- It is inexpensive! ($45 at time of purchase)
- Out of the box, seems well made (especially for the price)
- It is washable! The GoPod is not!!!!!! Yikes!
SUMMARY: if size/weight are not major considerations, I'd go with this product. If you want something tiny and lightweight but still sturdy (and don't mind adding your own toys to it), I'd go with the GoPod.
