I f-in’ hate when products come out like 6 months too late. I would have chosen 4Moms Mamaroo Bouncer over the Peg-Perego Melodia any day of the week, not to mention the [comparably priced] Bloom Coco or BJÖRN Babysitter (which is great for really little babies, because it cradles them and allows them to sit upright earlier, but quickly becomes a one-way ticket on the poop-blowout express, thanks to that very same near-upright angle.)
The Mamaroo sways and rocks in five different motions…just like the Mama. As for the mobile? No funny-lookin’ nursery rhyme creatures here…the “art balls” (I’m gonna leave that one alone) are decked out in Van Gogh, Monet, and Saurat prints. And I don’t want to get ahead of myself, but is it possible that in this one excellent piece of baby furniture you could replace your bouncer and your swing? (Don’t ask me why you need both. I didn’t think you would, and I can’t really explain why, but you DO. At least I did. I know it seems like nonsense but it’s true. And there I go accidentally rhyming again. What the hell?) Plus, you know how I love anything that even remotely resembles the Ball Chair. So yeah. This bouncer looks pretty awesome. You can buy it (or just see more pictures) HERE. But I can’t, because my kid has already out-grown it, and I already have a [different, not-as-cool] bouncer that’s been rendered useless by time. Dammit.
