Jolly Jumper Musical Mat Review

I purchased this from Walmart, in store. It’s also available from Amazon.com and Amazon.ca among other stores

Set-up

Additional items required: 2 AA batteries and a Philips screwdriver

Set-up time:  less than 5 minutes, including having to go and find a screwdriver downstairs!

Play

3 different ‘fun music modes’:

  • Jungle / Silly – sounds are made when the centre circle is stepped on (not the outer ring)
  • Dance – sounds from both inner and outer circles are pressed (not recommended with jumper because every jump restarts the music. Whereas with the other two modes, each jump plays a music clip, and does not restart until the previous one has ended.)

Pros and Cons

Pros: Easy to set up and use, my son loved it, multiple music options so if one gets annoying, you can change it to another mode, can be used both in and out of the Jumper, allowing continued use as baby grows.

Cons: The only real criticism I have is that the bottom is not slip resistant – it is fairly smooth. I found the mat slides a lot if he’s jumping barefoot, though only a little with socks/sleeper. Using a non-slip mat underneath should resolve this issue.

Overall Rating * * * * / 5

UPDATE – we don’t really use it under his jumper anymore because of it slipping, he will sometimes crawl across it on the floor, but usually just ends up sitting there unused. I am hoping that when he is older it will be used more often.
