Over the past year or so, my wife has become an expert in finding the best product on Amazon.com. She’s become a pro at being able to research different options, read Amazon reviews, and find the best deals and products on Amazon. So when it came time to find a jumper for Caleb…she was all over it.
After doing a ton of research, she found the Merry Muscles Baby Exerciser by Kidalog. It looked a little odd to me at first, but figured that since she had done the research, it probably was the best one out there.
I was away at a conference when my father-in-law installed it, but from what I heard, it was fairly simple. There is a screw-in hook that you have to install, and then you’re ready to go. We put one screw out in our sitting room area, and another in the door frame of the office. As soon as it was installed, Sarah took some video and photos of Caleb having a blast in it and sent them to me. It was clear that he loved it.
Since then…it’s been a lifesaver. We can put him in there and he’ll hang out and jump for 15, 20, 30, 45 minutes. He LOVES it. He can entertain himself, jump around, swing from front to back, and hang out and stare at Sadie.
Strapping him in is slightly challenging to get it just right, but as soon as he’s strapped in, he’s all smiles and giggles.
If there is something that I wish we would have registered for, it is this! It’s a little pricey, close to $100 when you add in the shipping since it wasn’t available for Amazon Prime. But seriously worth every dollar. Just today I came home and the babysitter was playing with him in the jumper. She said his new favorite thing was crashing into her and laughing.
And tonight…I wish I had gotten it on video, but he was giggling up a storm as he jumped on our dog, Sadie’s, paws while in the jumper.
I’m sure there are more technical reviews of the Merry Muscles Baby Exerciser out there, but from just a first hand account, I have to tell you that this jumper is amazing, and definitely the one you want to get.
Thank you for the review! It was very helpful. One question though, I’ve heard the shipping takes a really long time. Did you encounter this problem? Thanks for any info. 🙂
Honestly, I don’t remember. My wife ordered it – I know it didn’t come as quick as everything else with Amazon, but…it’s definitely worth it!
