Today I am going to be sharing with you my thoughts on Ingenuity Inlighten Twinkle Twinkle Teddy Bear Bouncy Chair. This is the bouncy chair that we have used for Troy. Now, normally he would be coming to the end of a bouncer at 6 months. Usually, they got up to 9kg. However, this bouncy chair goes go up to 18kg I think is about 1 year so for sure this is something which has a bit longer in our house. I will be sad to see it go when the time comes. Now as Troy has turned 8 months I have just put this up for sale on Facebook.
I saw this bouncer online however, I could not find it in stock when we were looking to purchase it. I believe it is fate and meant to be I actually found this bouncer on Facebook Marketplace someone was selling it close to me. We actually paid £20 for it which is amazing as the bouncer is around the £80 mark. Currently, it is back on stock on Amazon at the moment. We loved that this was a gender-neutral bouncer because we did not find out what we were having. This is something which we noticed a lack of when looking for bouncers.
One of the reasons why I loved this bouncer so much was due it not been in your face and bright. I know these can be great for stimulating your baby but to be honest I preferred the more muted tones. Despite it maybe not been the brightest to engage your baby there are so many elements. This is what made me have to purchase this bouncer. I loved that this could be put into two positions depending on what age your baby is. So it is always in the most comfortable setting for them which for me is something that is important for my child being comfortable. If you are a parent you know that it is important to be able to wash the fabric in case your child gets milk or is sick on it. Well, the great thing about this bouncer is the fact that you can throw the fabric in the washing machine.
You can easily carry this bouncer as well it is not too bulky at all. This is something which we have done we have had it in several different rooms in the house. We have also had it outside a few times when we have wanted a chair to put Troy in instead of having to hold him. I think this is handy that it is so lightweight you can move it should you want to. I remember this is not something which you could do easily with Jess’ as it was so heavy.
Of, course there is some amazing setting which is in the bouncer. This has one vibrating setting which is something that can actually send Troy to sleep. This is a bonus because we have found that he would sometimes rather be held than try and drift of on his own. This is great should I need to put him down and do something. There is nothing worse than not be able to do this a baby screaming their head off. It does shut off after a period of time I think it is around the 15-minute mark. I have found this great because this means it does turn off should you forget it is on it is not going to completely drain your batteries. It is worth noting that this bouncer does need 3 C batteries I know this is not a size which we normally have in.
One of the things which I loved about the bouncer is actually the twinkling lights that are above on the canopy toy bar. They can even be seen during the day but not on a summer day. I know this is something that you can not always see when it comes to lights on bouncers. As Troy has got older we have found that he has been watching the lights more and more. You can see his attention go and focus on these lights when we choose to put them on. Recently he has been able to hit the bears which are attached to the toy bar. He seems to be want to giggle when he has done this it is like he finds it super funny. I do not understand really why the bears are facing away from the baby on the toy bar though. Personally I think it would be better if they were facing the baby.
Of course, there is also the music that comes with the bouncer. For some reason, this is not something which we have used a lot. I think this is because of the fact that I find the music annoying. There is a lot of tunes which I think goes on for about 15 minutes as well. This can actually soothe Troy pretty easily because it is calming music. If we actually put this on and the vibration we often find Troy asleep. For sure this is a lifesaver when your home alone with the baby and you need to be able to jump in the shower. There is also nature sounds which you can put on if this is something which you thought they would face the baby.
Naturally, there are some down points to this bouncer one I find it is so easy to remove the toy bar. I have done this when I have been carrying it. Of course, they are so easy to clip back on but this something which can get a bit annoying. I though for the price I thought that it may have been a bit harder to remove making it more sturdy. I have heard that it can be a bit of a pain to dismantle. However, this is usually the case for some of the bigger items. I am not sure this is going to be a problem which we will have as I am sure we will end up passing this on or selling it again on something like Facebook.
