Mason received an Evenflo ExerSaucer for review and he is delighted. The Day At The Beach theme is perfect as we live in Southern California. It was fairly easy to put together out of the box with no tools. Although it takes up a fair amount of space, the pros outweigh this.
I usually place him in here when getting ready for work and at night when I need a free hand. Mason was 8 months when I started using this and he has enjoyed it for the past month. You can use the Exersaucer from 4 months to walking. It's neat because when I place him into the seat (adjusted to mid-height), he is able to rock, spin (360 degrees) and bounce. The floor is scalloped and the texture allows Mason to work on his balance and strengthen his legs for walking.
There are so many activities on this toy that Mason can be entertained for some time. Everything is beach themed: seagull and sun on the overhead cloud bar, starfish rattle, sand castle, fish with rings, swimming fish in clear roller and a cup with flat discs attached. Mason started playing with everything right off the bat. He likes when we put a ball into the cup so he can grab it and put it back. The fish roller is a favorite as it makes a gentle rattling noise and the seagull is being grasped to the point that I think he may rip it off!
The mirror is also fun to see his reflection in. It's safe and loads of laughter is made. There is also plenty of space on the top to place extra toys, if needed. Mason gets plenty of exercise in his ExerSaucer and strengthens his neck, back and leg muscles while doing so. This is actually pretty easy to clean with baby wipes and the seat fabric is machine washable.
It's nice that Mason has a safe and secure place to play and enjoy himself while I need a free hand. Kenzie also enjoys in telling Mason how to play with the toys and even joins in on the fun herself. Bonus for me because I can then get ready without fear of anyone getting hurt or getting upset. This is a must have for babies over 4 months of age.
