I’m really torn with this product; on the one hand, it has saved me from despair when baby boy refuses to sleep in his cot. Husband or I will bring him downstairs and sit him in the bouncer and he’ll sleep like an angel, meaning whoever stays in bed gets some much needed sleep.
It’s also handy if you need to move about without worrying about what to put baby on/in. The bouncer is light so can be moved into any room with you. I can tidy my living room without having to have baby strapped to me, and he gets his much needed rest.
It also has settings to play music, sounds and vibrate the chair. The music is a bit odd as it is almost recognisable lullabies, though baby doesn’t know what a song should sound like so he isn’t bothered when they’re not quite right. The sounds setting is good for soothing him too. The vibrate is supposed to be good for settling trapped wind / stopping hiccups but I’ve found this a totally pointless function. The chair can be bounced with a hand or foot though and this definitely soothes my baby!
On the other hand, we did not just buy this for the chair function. There is a mobile with toys (some squeak) which is supposed to hang over the chair. Within two days this had come off and was difficult to fit back again. When we eventually did manage to fix it, it stayed on for about an hour before falling off and landing on my newborn baby’s head! Not a particularly safe feature. Baby boy was fine, but we won’t be using the mobile again.
If you want a bouncer solely for the chair and bounce function, go for this. The seat itself is sturdy, nicely padded and looks quite nice. If you want something to keep baby entertained with mobiles and toys, avoid this product.
This bouncer is good value for money, looks stylish and can be put away easily. Handy to put baby in whilst in the kitchen or in the shower. The mobile arm does come off easily when moving the bouncer around.
I bought this joie chair and its amazing love the neutral pattern it is so easy to transport as it is lightweight, ultra slim and folds fully flat which makes a safe place for a nap when out and about or on holiday. I love that it play nature sounds as well as lullabies and vibrates. My chunk can make it rock or we can set it to one of the different setting to vibrate and play music . I really love this product and would and do recommend to any mum :) brilliant must have!
Firstly i fell inlove with the simple design, i wanted a netural design as we didn't know the gender.
At first our newborn wasn't impressed with the seat but by around 2 months she would happily sit or sleep in the chair. The vibration is great and having the choice of lulabys or sounds is great, these are very easy to use. However adjusting the seat while the baby is in it isnt so easy. I ave woken my little one up several times trying to lay her flat whilst asleep. Other than that it folds flat for easy storage.
The toy bar is a little too easy to pull off and i don't think my little one finds it that entertaining.
Overall good chair , does the job.
The best product we bought for baby!
Can use as a rocker or can place the little stand up and gently bounce.
Several different seat positions and a lovely eye catching toy stand for baby to look at. Was brilliant for our baby with reflux and colic.
My little one is very happy to spend time in this seat! I set the vibration on and she snuggles in. Lots of different music for her to listen to as well, either nursery rhymes or nature sounds. The only negative i’ve Got about this seat, is the arm which holds the bird and giraffe is a bit useless. It doesn’t really sit properly in the connector to the seat. Also, it drains the batteries quite quickly. Other than that, I’m happy with it and little one is happy with it too.
This was amazing while our baby was up to 4 months old. But as soon as he got a bit wriggly it started to collapse with him in it. So brilliant first bouncer but not for a long time. Would use it again with another baby knowing that it isn't to last months. Very happy with it while we could use it.
This rocker bouncer was an absolute godsend for us, especially in the early days with our baby. He loved this bouncy chair and during the day it was the only place he would sleep other than on me! It comes with a newborn insert, lovely toy bar, had several vibration settings and plays several different tunes. If I was being picky, the only downside is that it doesn't fold down flat for storing or travelling, but that was no biggie for us.
The melodies that play and pretty easy on the ears, can turn the volume up/down
Max weight is approx 9kg.
Ease of use
I bought this for my son when he was about 2 months old. As far as I'm aware the max user weight for it is about 9kg which my son outgrew pretty quickly. It's very sturdy and easy put up/down and my son loved it. He feel asleep in it many a times so I'll take that as his seal of approval!
Hard to change the position when the baby is in it
Ease of use
We brought the house design which is quite colourful and more interesting for a child. It has three positions which is great for different ages as well as it being quite long and wide too for an older child! The bouncer is easy to use and folds down small to fit under the bed which is handy if you don't have a lot of space.
One of the only problems I have with it is when the baby or child is in the chair it's not easy to move to different positions as it doesn't click into place very well so you have to choose the position you want first then put them in it. The toys are okay but not very engaging but you can add more of your own to the bar. it's very easy to wipe too so you don't need to worry if they are sick or food gets into it. It has a vibration setting which is soothing and some songs and other noises. All in all I would recommend this bouncer!
Absolutely love the design of the Joie Dreamer. So much so that I have 2 separate ones with different designs. My daughter wouldn’t take to any chair until we tried one of these. It has made my life easier as she spends her time looking at the toys as she’s too small to grab them yet. Would recommend to anyone. Best part is how it lays back flat near enough so the baby isn’t at a funny angle when asleep
This little bouncer is fantastic. Baby has used it from birth as it has a padded insert. Plays music, nature sounds and vibrates. Has a removable arm to had toys on which it a great way to entertain baby when you need to get on with some mummy jobs. Bouncer looks great and folds up really neatly for storage.
I brought this for my newborn and it was definitely the best one for us the size of the chair will last her to 9 months unlike many others we had viewed that were small in length. The chair is really easy to assemble comes with safety three point harness. Button at back of seat to adjust height of chair for sleep or playtime. The excellent sound bar that plays soothing songs that also has volume control and vibration settings with off switch once baby has drifted off I can turn it down slightly. It also rocks forwards and backwards but cleverly has a stopper attached if you don’t want that on. Great buy for the price I can not complain
Joie Dreamer is a lightweight, soft touch cosy rocking chair, engineered to comfort baby from newborn and after. Designed with a compact frame, 3 position reclining seat, 3 point harness, and lower buckle cover. The seat rocks back and forth with a gentle push or baby's movement.
