Skip Hop Explore & More Jumpscape Fold-Away Jumper

I’ve never posted a jumper on the blog in all the years I’ve been doing this, but if you’re partial to a jumper over an activity center, the Explore & More Jumpscape Fold-Away Jumper from Skip Hop is the one I’m going to recommend for a few reasons.

First, it’s from Skip Hop so it’s got all the fun colors and familiar shapes and characters we already love. Secondly, it serves as an activity center with tons of activities, sounds, lights and toys. But most importantly, it folds flat to less than 7 inches and is super easy to hide away when you’re not using it because it’s still a big plastic contraption and no matter how cute it is, you’d rather not be tripping over it all the time.

The Jumper is coming out at the end of the month, but you can pre-order yours now or add it to your baby registry.

Oribel PortaPlay Wonderland Adventures Baby Activity Center

Since the last time we checked in with Oribel, the stylish PortaPlay activity center has a new color scheme with the Wonderland Adventures version. If the original green was to much for your home’s decor to absorb, the Wonderland Adventures version might be much more to your liking.

This costs the same as the original PortaPlay ($130), but it’s available exclusively at Albee Baby.

Explore & More Baby’s View 3-Stage Activity Center from Skip Hop

The choices for modern baby activity centers are really slim. I think that in the past I’ve only recommended two others, so a third option is entirely welcome.

Skip Hop is coming at us with yet another wonderful piece of baby gear this year and I’m super excited about this direction for them.

An activity center is one of those giant pieces of baby gear that is completely optional, but for some families, a safe and engaging place to put an active infant (4m+) can be really useful.

The Explore & More Baby’s View 3-Stage Activity Center (really long name!) features a 360-degree rotating seat and colorful, easy to reach toys. The foot platform can be adjusted to the right height, removed for toddlers and the activity center transforms to a play table when baby has outgrown it.

Retails for $120. You can find it right now at Babies R Us.

4moms Self-Installing Car Seat

You may know we don’t generally post about car seats because style and modern looks are not the point. Safety should be by far your number one priority in car seat selection and there are blogs devoted to helping you choose the best car seats. Read Car Seat Blog or The Car Seat Lady for general car seat safety info and recommendations, but I’m going to show you something where modern technology is making safety fun and easy.

4moms self-installing car seat

From the baby gear tech experts at 4moms, the Self-Installing Car Seat installs itself correctly by auto-leveling and auto-tensioning. Proper installation is verified each time the carrier is connected to the base. Be sure that you’re doing it right every time.

Self-Installing Car Seat retails for $500 and is expected to ship September 19th.

4moms High Chair

The 4 moms High Chair is finally here– literally. After previewing the high chair at the ABC Kids Expo months ago, one recently arrived on my doorstep (ah, the perils of being a blogger) and of course I had to try it out!

4 moms high chair unboxing

Opening the giant box was the toughest part of the high chair assembly. Basically you snap the seat onto the legs and screw them together with the included hardware and tool. This photo of the chair in my kitchen was taken less than ten minutes after I opened the box.  Beautiful, no?

The best part of the high chair is what makes it unique. The 4moms High Chair uses magnets both in the tray latches and on the tray top. You can easily attach the tray with one hand and the magnets guide and lock it in place. The tray top is also magnetic and is perfect to use with the magnetic 4moms bowls and plates.animated high chair

The chair also features an adjustable 5-point harness and the tray can be installed in three different positions as your children grow. There are also three different height options. The sleek seat is easy to clean with the removable foam insert and a dishwasher-safe tray liner.

4moms_HC_Colors

The 4moms High Chair is available in three color combinations including black/grey, white/grey and white/green, and retails for $300. It comes with one bowl and lid. Additional plates, bowls and utensils are sold separately.

You can order yours from 4moms or via my amazon affiliate.
