I'm trying to complete my baby shower registry and I'm still needing a good bouncer/jumper activity center for the bean. I like the ones that jump so baby will get the leg muscles going to help walking later. But so far, the ones I see are HUGE! We don't have a very big nursery, and the room we have in the living room isn't too big with the sofa and love set in there, plus DH will be moving his office space into the living room corner. I'd like to find a nice jumperoo/bouncer that isn't half the size of the room, if you know what I mean. I've looked at some of these giant things and while they seem great and I'm sure Eli would love playing in them, since you can't just fold them up when he's not using it, it needs to not take up the entire floor area so we can walk around. Any of you ladies have any good ones that aren't the size of a small car? The one I really loved and wanted is no longer made The Bounce n' spin froggy space saver (I think it was called) looked so cute and had everything I wanted in a nice space saving package. But I am too late to get one now, so I need something comparable to its size. Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated. Thanks, ladies!

And these ones DO fold up. Not like, super small, but they fold up enough to get it out of the way.

Good to know it folds up. I've been eying that one.

I have that one, and it's traveled with us through three moves. I love it. It takes up more space than I prefer for baby stuff (I don't like stuff all across the house), but since it's been used every day for over three years, I think it's just as important as any other piece of furniture, lol.

Oh, sweet, it folds up a bit nice! I like this one a lot. Good reviews. I know most days it'll stay out and open but it's nice to see I can fold it up a bit and shove it in a corner if I need the space without having to take it all apart Thanks, ladies!

I have the jumperoo and love it, but it did take up a lot of space in our old tiny apt. This one has good reviews and hangs from a doorframe . I might get this one for downstairs...

My MIL found her old jolly jumper in the basement - at first I was like oh no no no. But I looked at it and the rubber and all the parts are just fine, I thought they would have gone brittle with age but they look like she just pulled them out of the box. I thought they were illegal (the ones that attach the door frames) but I googled it and they are still selling them in stores.

So I took it from her. I honestly don't know if I'll use it... especially with dogs around the house. If you don't have other kids or dogs though I don't think you can get more space saving then that?

The Rainforest baby jumperoo is pretty good, used my friends for a while and never had a problem with it. Check out http://thesafebabyhub.com/best-baby-...oo-uk-reviews/ for a list of some of the best ones out there.
