Global lifestyle brand Skip Hop have launched into the baby bouncer category this month, giving the classic baby bouncer design a bit of a lift. The first of its kind, the Uplift Baby Bouncer combines the New York based brand’s love of modern design and functionality to help integrate baby into everyday family moments.
The baby bouncer is a pretty essential item for those first few months of babyhood. There is nothing more liberating than the precious 10 minutes of hands-free time you get when you put baby safely into the bouncer so you can run around the house like an Olympian housewife (or indeed househusband), competing in the clothes washing relay race. Or when you can finally step into the shower, for the first time that week. Ahh yeah, feels like the best shower of your life doesn’t it?
“There is nothing more liberating than the precious 10 minutes of hands-free time you get when you put baby safely into the bouncer so you can run around the house like an Olympian housewife (or indeed househusband), competing in the clothes washing relay race.”
This all-in-one, multi-level bouncer can be set as a traditional floor bouncer or elevated up to sofa height at the twist of a knob. So whether you’re impersonating Super Mum/ Dad, or treating yourself to a meal at the table, you can keep baby safely supported and in plain sight.
The toy bar keeps baby entertained and engaged, neatly tucking away when not in use. And the fun doesn’t stop there, oh no – There’s a choice of two songs and two sound effects to delight baby, with that all important volume control so you are not humming them all evening, as well as soothing vibration – all of which has an auto-off feature after 20 minutes.
There’s no patronising baby design here. Skip Hop’s in-house design and creative studio have stayed true to their ethos of smartly designed essentials for parents, babies and toddlers by keeping the colour palette neutral and the overall feel, sleek and streamlined – A winningly good fit for your home and your design sensibilities. The plush, 100% cotton jersey insert acts as a support for younger babies and can be removed as baby grows. With no assembly required, the bouncer is ready to go and is recommended for babies up to 6 months old.
