BabaBing Lobo Bouncer, Aubergine
Only okay - better chairs on the market
I bought this for my DD when she was around 4 weeks old. While it is fine, I would buy something different if buying again.
The velcro straps are annoying, and I agree with other reviewers that it's not deep enough. We haven't had incidents of falling out or the chair falling over - it is safe enough for our LO.
At 10 weeks, my LO sits in the chair without complaint, but I have seen her happier in other chairs when at friends/family.

Broke at 4 months old
We got this as a present before our daughter was born. It has served us quite well until the white metal ring that forms the base sheared off when she hit 4 months old (at this point she weighed 7.1kg- the product is meant to last them until 9kg). It's a real shame we won't be able to use it again for another baby which was the plan.
Otherwise we found she liked it a lot, the only other issue we had was that we couldn't really use it reliably until she was at least 6-8 weeks old, as the newborn head support provided was, well, not very supportive. It was only when she got to about 2.5 months with reasonable head support was I comfortable to leave the room when she was in it.
I have just purchased a second bouncer (the baby bjorn babysitter) from John Lewis, after reading all the reviews. Watch this space.

I'm undecided on this bouncer. It looks great, it's very stylish and very well made; I didn't want one that was battery operated or too garish.
My little boy does like it (its brilliant to pop him in it in the kitchen with me for example if I'm busy in there) but I tend to find he's been happier in other bouncers that are deeper and more supportive - even now at nearly 4 months old I find the head support isn't enough to stop him wriggling slightly off the bouncer and his head falling over the side (cue unhappy screams if he gets stuck!)
As a result, he doesn't spend as much time in it as I'd have expected, and I agree with a previous reviewer that it wasn't really ideal for him 'from birth'.
Saying this I still think its one of the best looking on the market and nice and lightweight to carry from room to room.

Really nice, not too twee baby seat also light enough to carry baby from room to room with you.
We found it not supportive enough for newborn but by six weeks she loved sitting in it. One criticism is the velcro straps make such a loud noise that it startles our baby often waking her if we try to take her out.

This bouncer is probably the best item we have purchased for our little boy. I would have given it 5 stars apart from a few little faults. The 2 plastic balls at the base should be covered as little one bangs his feet hard on them.. He is now 7kg and the chair has began to buckle under his weight so the 9kg limit is a little enthusiastic. Apart from this it a absolutely fantastic product, our son loves being in his chair and we will be buying a new one for our next arrival. We wanted a chair that baby has to bounce themselves in rather than an electric one as most tend to be, once again brilliant buy.

I can not praise this bouncer enough! Our baby has loved this bouncer from being 2 weeks old, baby is able to sit securely and comfortably and now when she kicks the bouncer does what it's meant to (bounces). She absolutely loves the little guys hanging from the rail and it can keep her occupied for a good length of time at only 5 weeks old!
The slick design also looks great in our front room!

Could easily be better!
Thought assembly was easy until came to fit toy holder, when i found I had to take it all apart as the first part fitted was upside down! Could be better if instructions mentioned that!
Head padding not fastened to seat, so moves, falls off, etc. Could be better if velcro used to fix it in place.
Despite these 2 points baby loves it and easily rocks off to sleep!
So close to being excellent!!

Great for both boys and Girls
Great bouncer. It was affordable and easy to use . I loved the rich aubergine colour which was perfect for both boys and girls since I didn' know whether the baby would be a boy or girl at the time of purchase.
