Bight Starts Bouncer, handy to have around
The Bright Starts Pretty In Bouncer is handy to have around, but I wouldn't say it's necessary. I think it depends on the baby, but ours is only interested in it occaisionally. It hasn't been an effective soother, more of just a seat to put her in when it looks like she's going to fall asleep anyway. The vibration is nice and the songs are also sweet as well. The volumne is fine and it doesn't take up too much space. While the top piece looks like a handle, it shouldn't be used as one, because it always comes unhooked, so definitely don't try to pick it up by the top piece, especially when the baby is in it! The two dangling toys are cute and my baby likes to look at them, one has a mirror that is fun for the baby to see. It is comfortable and has an easy to use snapping belt for saftey. Also, if you want to use it as a "bouncer" you have to be there bouncing it manually. All in all I'd say it's nice to have around, but it has never been a lifesaver.
