FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Fisher-Price Shakira First Steps Collection Musical Friends Bouncer

I read a couple of reviews on this and was concerned it would be difficult to put together.  It was not.   The assembly is time consuming but not difficult.  The end product is rather cool.  The design means that the baby's own movement creates a bouncing chair.  If the baby is still as when asleep, the chair is quiescent.  There is a soothing switch which applies a low vibration to the frame which in turn is transferred to the frame cover on which the baby is positioned.  The soothing switch seems some what extraneous but I guess that might calm some kids. 

The music is typical kids toy music, kind of bouncy and steel drum like.  There is a switch for a longer playing tune or a short ditty. The music starts when either the child or adult pulls one of the two brightly colored dangling toys.  When the music plays the red, yellow and blue lights flash and illuminate the parrot, cat and zebra with instruments that stand on the top rail.  The 10 day old grand daughter is not impressed but I suspect as she gains mobility the hanging toys will be within reach and she can entertain herself.   Right now it is just a comfortable place to sleep.  It seems stable and secure and the build quality seems quite nice.   The method of securing the baby seems good.  I like it.
