The fabric of the seat is both bright and breathable. Your baby can sit in it until they reach 20 pounds, which is a pretty good life span for a product with this small of a price tag.

The spinnable toys are one of the best features that the Bright Starts Playful Bouncer has to offer. The toys are positioned on a bar which can be easily removed when placing or removing your baby from the bouncer. The toys sit just above the baby so that your little one can play with them and escape into a world of imagination while they’re at it.

The deep and comfortable cradle provides the utmost in comfort and security for your baby, with a 3-point harness that fits snugly and comfortably to their waist and legs for added protection. The harness ensures your baby will not fall out, no matter how much they wiggle and move around.

This product has the soothing vibration system which is the same as the other bouncers. When your baby lies down, he/she can play with the interactive toys hanging above their heads. This will result in the interest to bat and play alone without any support from either the baby’s mom or dad.

What experts didn't like
Though sufficiently sturdy, the Bright Starts bouncer’s thin metal makes it feel flimsy compared with our pick, and though the seat will hold a kid weighing up to 20 pounds, it doesn’t have a dedicated toddler mode

Your baby needs to be able to support their own head before using this bouncer.

One thing to note: once your baby gets tall, they’ll start to kick the bottom of the seat, where the frame is. When they do, they’ll kick metal and it might hurt their little feet and ankles.

It does have a steep incline, so it’s not the best option for small newborns.
- The Baby Swag
There is no automatic up and down bounce feature but the baby can easily activate it once they start kicking their legs. It’s easy to bounce them up and down in it.

It must be noted that this bouncer does not recline, so it will not offer such support if your baby cannot yet sit up on its own.
