Review: Infantino Fold and Go Bouncer

Though he may not look like it in this pic, Robbie LOVES this bouncer!

OK, that's a little better!

Seriously, we are enjoying the lovely Fold and Go Bouncer that Infantino has so generously let us try! We have even folded it and gone with it on two out-of-town trips! There are quite a few features that make me very impressed with this product, and it is also one of those "Why didn't I think of that?!" type things!

The bouncer was easy to assemble. I did it all by myself! :) The first time I tried to fold it up to travel with it, I did fail to notice the handy little straps included with which to keep the bar stabilized while transporting it, but once I found those, it stayed folded much more nicely! The bouncer is lightweight and folds down to a very compact size, and is not complicated to set up or fold down.

It has many nice features: an adjustable head-rest pillow, an adjustable and removable toy bar with two removable toys, several vibration/sound features, and THIS is something I really like: it cuts off after a few minutes so that I'm not constantly replacing batteries! This is especially nice with traveling, as this ensures that it doesn't get turned on and run while not in use.

The fabric is washable and is a visually pleasing tan, orange, turquoise, and green pattern. It is understated but still attractive! The head pillow can be attached to the seat by a velcro strip, so that as baby grows, the pillow can be adjusted. Since the toy bar is also adjustable, this not only makes it easier for travel, but also means that it can be moved so the toys are closer or farther away from baby as desired. I especially like that the elephant features a mirror on its side, as Robbie is currently fascinated with talking to himself in the mirror! It is also nice that the toys can be removed from the bar, so that other toys could be interchanged if the user wishes. (I've actually attached some other Infantino toys for variety!)

The control panel for the sound and vibration is easily accessed from the front of the seat.It has separate buttons for power, vibration, music, volume, and other sounds. The fact that it has volume control ROCKS! (Have you noticed that many baby toys are ridiculously LOUD?!?) The music button features three tunes, and the sound button includes a water sound, a heartbeat sound, and a white noise.

Robbie loves to sit in this bouncer. It is the perfect place for a baby to sit and relax!

See what I mean?!
