When my son’s cradle swing broke when he was 4 months old, I was on the search for something else to set him in. Most of the time I wear him (in a baby carrier), but there are times that I just need to set him down (hey, nature calls SOMETIMES! Yes, even to moms…). I didn’t want to shell out the big bucks for another cradle swing, and he wasn’t yet ready for the Jumperoo we have.

I purchased this bouncer seat (along with the travel swing that matches) and was hopeful! This was my first bouncer… I should mention that I have 4 children ages 5 and under. I thought the bouncer seat would be great to be able to feed him in until he could fit into our restaurant style high chairs, as well as just a ‘place’ to set him.

I was actually very surprised when he enjoyed the bouncer seat MORE than the swing (and he LOVED his previous cradle swing!). He really gets a kick out of the animals on the toy bar, they just fascinate him! It’s nice that the center animal (the raccoon) is detachable, because I can take it off for him to play with when he’s doing other activities as well (when he’s in his swing, when he’s playing on the floor, etc…).

I don’t know if he cares any which way about the vibrations, they don’t seem to calm him OR upset him. I wouldn’t say his disinterest in the vibrations is any flaw of the bouncer seat though, just a personal preference of my son’s and other babies may think differently of it!

The only thing I notice is that he weighs down the seat considerably at 17 pounds, and I wish the seat had a little more ‘bounce’ at this weight.

Other than that, I’m very happy with this purchase and will definitely hang on to it for further children!

We had another Fisher Price bouncer chair that was a hand me down. It was great, but after using it so much, it lost a lot of bounce and was no long an upright sitting chair. So we bought this one because it was so affordable and very cute. The woodland creature design really does look more modern than the rainforest stuff or the stuff that is primary colors. I really Ike that it has a washable cover and is very easy to out together/take apart.



Compared to our previous Fisher Price bouncer, this one was pretty basic. No lights, no sounds, just a vibrating chair (requires batteries). It is a little difficult to get it out of the way because it does not fold up at all. Also, the base of the legs sticks out pretty far compared to our previous bouncer chair. This means a lot of stubbed toes. I mean a lot of stubbed toes! Seriously, I've taken 2-3 falls because I misjudged how close I was to this chair while walking past it.



The distraction bar that goes in front of the baby doesn't offer much entertainment, and it is not that easy to get baby in and out without removing it, so in the end we removed it permanently and I forgot we even had it until I discovered it under our couch. Because the base is very light and the product is not very expensive, it also means it feels a little flimsy compared to our old chair. If you're looking for a cheap chair that looks nice, this is the chair for you. If you want something that will provide a little more entertainment, check out the other fisher Price chairs.

Great Bouncer!!

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

Suggested age -1 month+                                              

I bought this as a gift for my new born nephew and he seems to absolutely love this bouncer.

The color is bold and the design is absolutely adorable and the little one likes the hanging toys and plays with it He shrieks in excitement and just has a great time in this thing.He kicks his legs and gets excited every time we put him on it at night.The vibration and bouncing seat work great too.This one has a metal bar, so the seat is very easy to take off and wash and the rest can be wiped down.Since the item doesn't weigh much, it's very easy to travel with it.It is just as good as any other expensive bouncy.

I don't give it a full five because the toy bar makes some noise when the vibration setting is on.

Overall , the price is reasonable and the quality is great! 

The bouncer is wonderful and I would recommend it to my friend.

Just what we needed!

By 

from Wayne, MI

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

This bouncy seat was a gift for my baby shower. I was dispointed at first because it lacks the bells and whistles that some of the other brands have. the design is also not very attractive, its kind of an ugly pattern. 

We were pleasantly surprised that this is exactly what our newborn wanted. It vibrated and was not noisy. The bouncy does not use a lot of battery life, so your battery will last a very long time. Should you need to change it, or clean the cover, they both come off very easily, and are easy to put back on as well. 

The bouncy does not have very entertaining toys, but we added our own with our own rings. Also it does not fold down, do it is not easy to store. Those are the main downsides. 

I would use this again and would recommend it because my baby loved it! It is very reasonably priced compared to other swings. He would nap in this daily, and it was a lifesaver when he was sick. Being upright helped him a lot!.

Our favorite!

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

We have this bouncer in the how now brown cow pattern. We received it as a gift from a friend before my son was born. For the first few weeks our son hated his bassinet and would only sleep in our arms or the bouncer- turning on the vibrations would immediately calm him down and put him to sleep. I don't know what we would have done without it. As he got a little older he transitioned to the bassinet no problem. We love the chair now for anytime we need a safe place to put him where he will be happy while we fix dinner, get dressed, etc. It keeps him happy for long periods of time and when he gets over tired and doesn't want to go to sleep the vibrations put him right out. Overall a great product - definitly on my list of new baby essentials.

Soothe N Play Bouncer says it All!!

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

We have had this bouncer with both of my children from the time they were newborns! We got it as a shower gift and I would have to say it is one of the best baby gifts we got!

With both babies, they have sat in it since they were newborn and we didn't have any problems with slouching or sliding (they were both almost 9lbs). Then from just a few weeks they started getting excited at the toys hanging down from the bar. The middle toy (the owl) is removable to allow for easy access of putting the child in and out of the bouncer. This bouncer has allowed us to be hands free for dinner, showers, etc.

It is very light weight so even though it doesn't fold up I think it is light enough to carry with out any problems. The design also allows you to be able to actively bounce while it vibrates. This option wasn't as important with my first child, but my second one has to constantly be moving.

The bouncer may not work for everyone. Luckily both of my children love it and I'm so thankful. I wish I had one on each level of my home!

Fisher-Price Bouncer- must have!

By 

from Peachtree City, GA

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

My five month old boy has loved this bouncer since week three. He is fascinated by the owl, chipmunk and hedgehog on the toybar. He chats with them every day, and he can finally reach the mushroom which he loves to swing around. I think the seat must be comfortable because he enjoys being in it daily, and has figured out how to make it bounce up and down when he is excited. I love the design, it is not as abrasive as the other baby bouncers out there. The colors are a nice change from the standard primary colors. The seat actually looks pretty cute with our modern decor. The seat is small enough that you can pop it in the car for short trips- and if you are like me, you will be happy to have it! It is light enough that you can move it around the house depending on which room you need to spend time in. The seat cover is easy to remove, and can go right in the washing machine. This is a must have for new parents!

Great Bouncer

By 

from Copperas Cove, TX

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

I received this as a gift off my baby shower registry.  It's is not over priced like many other bouncers, so it is great if you are on a budget.  It has been such life saver around our house!  My little one loves it.  The little animals hanging down keep him quite entertained...he loves to kick as hard as he can to make them move! (The toy bar is removable if you'd rather have it without.) I also love the vibrating feature.  It is great to help soothe a fussy baby who doesn't want to sleep!  It seems sturdy enough to hold him for a few more months (he is 3 months now and weighs about 13 pounds.)  The pattern is very gender neutral, so it is practical if you are planning on having more children and will need to use it with them.  I love  that the cover is removable so it can be easily washed (a BIG necessity if you have a baby that spits up a lot like mine.)  Overall, I am happy with this bouncer and would recommend this to others.

The Fisher-Price Soothe N Play bouncer works great!

By 

from Mission, KS

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

We received the bouncer as a baby shower gift and we use it DAILY with our 6 wk old.  He loves to sleep in it, look at the mobile above it and his eyes always open wide when it starts vibrating.  It sits in our living room all the time.  The mobile is easy to take off and put on and the angle of the seat is just right.  We LOVE it!  We think that the pattern of it is very cute and inviting.  

We have left it on accidentily due to it being so quiet so it runs through the batteries pretty fast.  I think it would do better on that if we remembered to turn it off.  So far nothing has broken on it and I am hoping that nothing will...we want it to last a LONG time.  I do wish that the mobile above it was a bit more entertaining...lights, sounds, etc.  I also wish that it would fold down smaller for travel.  We wanted to take it with us on a trip and due to its size, we were unable to do so.  But if you had a larger vehicle it wouldnt be a problem.

Baby loves it!

By 

from Tuscaloosa, AL

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

This bouncer has been quite helpful for us. In the mornings, the baby will sit it in and watch me in the kitchen. She likes to take her bottles while sitting in it, and she likes to watch us eat dinner while sitting in it. We also have "giggle time" in it as we like to talk and play with her while she sits in it. She really enjoys the toys that hang down - as a newborn she would stare at them, but started playing with them around two-months-old. She is now almost five-months and still really enjoys it. The vibrating feature is nice. In fact, it is one of the must-haves when we travel. You can take it apart so that it is easier to travel with. It could be easier to disassemble, but it certainly isn't bad. It is good quality - in fact, it was a hand-me-down, so our daughter is the third baby to use it. It is still in great condition and does not look worn at all. The characters on it are very cute. Very well worth it for the price.

Baby loved woodland bouncer to pieces (LITERALLY)

By 

from Oswego, NY

Comments about Fisher-Price Soothe N Play Bouncer - Woodland Animals:

I bought this chair for my son and he used it for a while and loved it! Then I used it for my next child who also loved it. I love the patter and the cute animals attached to the bar overhead. It was great for both children since its not gender specific in color/pattern. 

I'm currently using it for my 4 month old daughter who LOVES to kick in it and bounce. It literally fell apart today. The screw that holds the overhead bar to the seat kept falling out. We believe the part attached to the chair somehow got stripped even though we've never removed the screw. She is no longer able to use the bar since the screw is a choking hazard for my 3 kids. But as she was bouncing in it today the bars on the side actually came apart. I was very surprised by this. I was able to fix it, but don't really feel ok with her using it any more.

I'd say this is great for one child but not sure if it recommend it for using it for a second or third child.
