Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer

When I was pregnant with my firstborn in 2008, I decided that when I picked out baby gear, it would be gender neutral in case we decided to have another baby and the baby turned out to be the opposite gender of the first. I picked out items like the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer which is neither too boyish nor too girlish.

After doing my research, I decided that the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer was definitely the one for me. It was lightweight, had a removable activity bar with lights and sound, a removable seat cover for easy washing, and the ability to vibrate for a calming effect. The activity bar had a lot going on: a moving waterfall light, moving rainforest animals that kind of played peek-a-boo, a hanging toucan toy, a hanging monkey toy, mommy activated music or baby activated music.

Using the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer Seat

Once home, I found it very easy to put together, but I did find the removable activity bar a tad tough to remove. After thinking about it, I decided it was a good thing that the activity bar was difficult to remove since it could hurt the baby if it fell on them after becoming loose from the seat base.

My son, while still only an infant, seemed very comfortable in it. I did have to use a head support since he was still wobbly, but other than that, all was well. As he grew, he had such a ball in the seat. He loved watching the waterfall, trying to grab the toucan and the monkey toys, and making the music play. He wasn’t ever too thrilled with the calming vibrations, but since they were optional it didn’t make a difference. And no matter how hard he bounced (and he was a heavier baby), he never touched the floor or broke the base.

The seat was easy to move and transport. I moved it from room to room in my house, and I brought it with us on trips to see the relatives. It did take four D batteries, but I didn’t have to change them as often as I thought I would.

A Review of the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer

In 2011: Still Using the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer

Two and a half years later, my daughter is using the bouncer and I am still in love with it. Prior to her birth, we had loaned the bouncer to my brother-in-law and his wife for their baby. It was still as clean and in great working condition when we got it back.

My daughter loves everything about it that my son did, but she also liked the calming vibrations. Now that she started eating baby cereal, I use the bouncer as her eating seat until she is able to sit upright unassisted in a high chair. I just remove the activity bar and place pillows under the seat so it doesn’t bounce.

Used the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer Through 2016!

I continued to use the Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer for my third baby in 2013. It was still in excellent condition and became his favorite place to nap when he was an infant!

And when Baby #4 was born, I used it for her as well in 2016. The seat is still in great condition. To think that I got 7 years out of this one piece of baby gear is amazing!

Long Story Short

1. Fisher Price Rainforest Bouncer

2. Easy to set-up and keep clean

3. Multiple music settings and fun toys

4. Durable and lasts

5. Four D batteries

6. Easy to move or transport

      Nancy, at this point, it might only be on eBay or on Facebook marketplace. I don't know if it's being manufactured anymore.

      I agree with you Rosie2Travel. The bouncer is certainly a good buy and sturdy! It's lasted three years for us now. Thanks for sharing your experience with it!

      We bought this series for my godson last year. He's 14 months now and still loves them all. He still tries to get in his swing all the times still. Other times he'll put his "babies" (aka stuffed animals and other toys) in the bouncer. He's not exactly a "gentle" baby and these things are standing up in great condition. Definitely a good buy.
