Best Baby Jumper Reviews 2017 – Top 5 Picks

written by Catherine Anderson

finding the best baby jumperBabies, as beautiful and innocent as they are, crave one thing from the moment they are old enough to notice their environment: play!

Anytime is playtime for little ones, which makes sense after the nine restful months they had in the tummy.

As a parent, nothing gives you more joy than the sound of your little one hooting and screeching in the best baby jumper you got them as you prepared for their birth.

Why Your Baby Need The Best Baby Jumper

Well, because nothing but the best is good enough for them. Besides, a baby jumper plays a significant role in keeping the baby active and distracted.

They love the feeling of their movement so much that they will forget anything (other than their snack time) when they are playing. Even better is the fact you can keep an eye on them all the while.

Depending on the baby jumper you choose, your child could have an entire entertainment center at home. Some music for their eager souls and playthings to keep them occupied for several hours until they collapse with exhaustion. 

Play aside; the jumper will help with strengthening their tiny muscles. Although there is no scientific evidence that this plaything tones a child’s muscles, they have been seen to improve their lower body strength.

Babies gain confidence on being on their feet, albeit in the safety of the walker and this speeds the transition from crawling to walking.

Well, technically, a baby jumper is not a walking aid, but it makes them curious about being on their feet. They learn to balance themselves and jump without the fear of falling.

We have crawled the interwebs to bring you five of the best baby jumpers.

The Fisher-Price Luv will serve your child well until they outgrow it and if you are lucky, you will hand it down to your next or a friend’s.

That will be so if Fisher Price does not come up with a better version. You can set your baby on it after the 5th month.

The body is steel with a few plastic parts. The polyester fabric will hold your child’s weight as they jump their way to healthy growth.

The steel frame is easily foldable for easy transportation. Since the entire package weighs 17lbs, you can carry it with you to grandma’s house or on play dates.

This zoo-themed baby jumper makes fun sounds to keep you baby entertained ad to sharpen their taste for music. It is never too early to start them, right?

Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Jumperoo Review

To complete the zoo theme, the tiny toys make animal sounds whenever the baby jumps. The jumper lights up too as if to reward the little one for their efforts.​

Because every jump is rewarded with massive lighting, the baby will be motivated to jump. It gets more exciting when they figure that a 360-degree spin will give them access to all the toys. Don’t be surprised when you have to get them off their ‘playhouse’ kicking and screaming.​

Let’s talk about color.

We know with certainty that fetuses are not exposed to color during their 40-week confinement, and so they curiously respond to the ‘astonishing’ variety when they leave the safety of the womb. The toys on this baby jumper are colorful and mild, raising the little one’s curiosity and keeping them glued in awe.​

Things We Liked

  • 3 height adjustments.
  • Made of a durable frame that is easy to take down and set up.
  • The colors and sounds keep the baby busy and intrigued.
  • Washable/removable seat cushion.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Noises are quite annoying and only have 2 volume settings.

Because one option is never enough Fisher-Price had to go and come with yet another alternative for your little bundle of joy.

As soon as the little one can hold their little head up unassisted, you can comfortably let them play in this jumper. If they are already crawling and walking, they are certainly too smart for this jumperoo.

When they are still in their exploration and discovery stage, babies are fascinated by the sound of music. This jumper will reward their little jumps with sounds of music and lights to encourage them to jump more.

While at it, the fear of falling is eliminated. You can count this as their introduction to music.

The sturdy steel frame is easy to take down to ease your worry of depriving the child of their new obsession when you travel. It is slightly heavy, though. The polyester fabric holds the weight of the baby sufficiently until they are too heavy for it (25lbs).

At the front of this 37 x 32 x 32 inches jumper is a piano that you can activate to play music for up to four minutes. It will need 3 AAA batteries to keep the little one entertained.​

Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo Review

Things We Liked

  • It turns at 360 degrees to give baby access to all toys.
  • The seat is soft and comfy.
  • Lights, sounds and music reward baby for jumping.
  • Easy to use, move, and store.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Takes up quite a bit of space/not easily stored.
  • Noises are quite annoying and only have 2 volume settings.

This polyester-made jumper is slightly different from the rest.

It is all fabric with a plastic dome, and it is designed to be hinged to some study support instead of being set on the floor. It accommodates babies as young as three years until when they weigh 25lbs.

One of the things that set this jumper apart the rest is that you strap and hang it to bounce the baby on it. Its soft yet sturdy strap comes with a clamp to prevent it from leaving marks wherever you hang it. A removable and machine-washable nylon pad covers the comfortable high-back seat.​

Unlike the Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Jumperoo, this cheaper baby jumper has few toys and has to be manipulated to bounce. However, the toy tray is large enough for additional toys you may fancy. You can also adjust the height as the baby grows.​

Graco Doorway Bumper Jumper Review

It is easy to bring down for transportation. It will not need any special package for carrying as the high seat folds and fits in any medium-sized bag.​

Things We Liked

  • Inexpensive price.
  • Easy to move from room to room.
  • It has a hidden safety cord on the spring to keep the baby safe n matter how high they bounce.
  • The fabric seat is washable.
  • Strong, sturdy construction.

Things We Didn't Like

  • It took a while to figure out how to adjust the height.

Evenflo Baby Jumper is brightly colored to catch baby’s attention and to get them ready to play.

The high seat is framed all round to ensure the safety and comfort of the child as they jump their way to healthy bones. Unlike the baby jumpers that you set on the floor, this kind allows you to adjust the height to suit your baby.

It has a clamp to prevent leaving marks on your door when you hang or any other place. It accommodates young ones from the time their necks are strong enough, and they can sit down without support.​

Although the manufacturer says this jumper is limited to 25lbs, some parents say they have exceeded this weight, and it still held well.

When the seat is soiled, you can machine-wash it or wipe it clean with a damp cloth. Set up will require no tools and take down is pretty easy when you want to move it to another room.​

Evenflo ExerSaucer Door Jumper Review

Things We Liked

  • You can adjust the baby jumper's height up or down to suit your child.
  • The seat embraces the child perfectly to prevent them from falling off.
  • Inexpensive price.
  • Fit quickly and easily over the door frame.

Things We Didn't Like

  • The discreet spring that enables it to bounce is too loud.
  • It has no toy tray or toys attached.

This frame of this baby jumper is made of thick plastic, and the bright colored pad of the seat is polyester. It is machine-washable, or you could just wipe it with a damp cloth.

The toy tray contains an array of Baby Einstein-inspired toys for entertainment. You have an octopus, a whale, and other select of colorful ocean-themed toys.

They go well with the blue body of the jumper that represents the ocean. The tray has more loops for adding extra toys.

The baby has enough going for them to stay busy. A piano, which is part of the set-up, has volume control and three modes of play for variety. Bounces are rewarded with unique ocean sounds and piano notes.

It is not indicated on the package whether each piece of plastic is BPA-free.

Baby Einstein Rhythm of the Reef Activity Saucer Review

Things We Liked

  • Beautifully designed and colored.
  • It has unique ocean themes.
  • Up to 12 plus activities.
  • 3 height settings.
  • Seat rotates 360 degree to give baby full access to toys.

Things We Didn't Like

  • The plastic base that the baby bounces on can be a little hard on the child’s feet.

Are You Ready To Shop?

Although it is not a baby walker, a baby jumper starts your child off well and gives them the confidence to walk or makes an easy transition to a walker should you choose that. It also exercises their young limbs and strengthens the muscles.

You can also look at it as a way of containing an overly active baby. With the jumper occupying their mind, you can embark on your chores.

We like all the baby jumpers we have reviewed and recommended, but the favorite in the pack is the Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Jumperoo. The steel-frame is not only durable, but it is also foldable when transporting the jumper. It has a wide variety of zoo-themed toys to ensure that your child does not get bored.

The high seat pad is washable. We love that it rewards the baby’s jumps with several different sounds all through. It is a bit pricey, but it is an excellent choice.
