Baby Product Review - Evenflo Exersauser

she was trying to tell us how much she loves it!
Addie is absolutely loving her exersauser right now so I thought it might be good to blog about all of the different baby items we've had success with and those things we haven't had success with - starting with her exersauser.  These reviews are solely my opinion and not influenced in any way and are products we have bought for our daughter.  I clearly remember being 6 months pregnant and so overwhelmed when it came time to figuring out what we were going to need around here when she finally made her arrival.  So, heres hoping that someone might get some use of my successes and failures with various baby products.

Product name: Evenflo Exersauser Triple Fun Jungle

Price: $119.99 at Babies R Us

Gender: neutral

Easy to clean: Yep!

Success or Failure: Huge success

Age she started using it: 4 months

Age she stopped using it: still going strong at 5 1/2 months

Ease of assembly: I certainly don't give it an A in this department.  I gave up after about 30 minutes of working on it and my husband spent about another 45 minutes before he had it put together.  It's alot to put together and so it just takes some time and patience.

Pros:  I love all of the bright colors as they really seem to catch Addie's attention.  It also moves up and down-not johnny jump up style but enough to keep her entertained when she wants to bounce - which she loves to do.  The seat moves in a complete circle so she can play with all of the different things - which she does.  It has several things that either light up or play music so that also keeps her more entertained than the norm.  It also has 3 different height adjustments so I feel confident that it will grow with her - which is wonderful!

Cons:  Like I said earlier, it takes a little longer than I would have hoped to put together.

Entertainment Time:  Addie gets bored after about 20 minutes - pretty much once she's spent about 5 minutes at each toy she's ready for a change of scenery.

Other info:  This exersauser actually comes with a tummy time type mat that they can start using much earlier and actually progresses to a table/entertainment center when they start to stand.  The latter part had some safety concerns in the reviews I read but the mat and the exersauser are great!

Would I buy again or buy for a friend? Yes - my mom actually bought it for her best friends' daughter's baby shower!

welcome to the blog world!! i've been reading Lis (Beach Bum & Baby) for YEARS! Like, back in 2008 when I first started blogging.. CRAZINESS! Can't wait to follow along on your Mama adventures! Carter is the "20-minute Toy King!" I swear, we play Musical Baby Equipment every day.. It's a little easier now that he's rolling all over the floor- but in previous months? Omg.. the swing.. the exersaucer.. the walker. Wash, rinse, repeat! :)

LOVE the exersaucer! I could not have done without it. So much so that I have three in my house. Yes, three. I didn't want to move them from room to room and they were such a life saver for me that I had to, I just had to.
