Bjorn's Bouncer Balance Soft
Bjorn's Bouncer Balance Soft
The BabyBjorn Bouncer Balance Soft is an updated, modernized version of their previous BabySitter Balance. The stylish seat locks into 3 separate positions to promote play, rest, and sleep and is suitable for 8 to 29 pounds from 0 to 2 years. It can be used as a Bouncer for infants but also be used as a Chair for toddlers. The base is sturdy and anti-glide floor strips keep the Bouncer securely on the floor.

Parents like the Balance Soft for its obvious aesthetic charm and folded size but mostly because babies tend to remain comfortable and content in it for extended periods of time. For young infants, its cozy seat offers head, neck, and back support and bounces via baby's own generated motion, not from the power of batteries. This not only engages and entertains baby but also and aids in the development of motor skill and strength. The seat sits up tall enough to let baby see what's going on around him, and works especially well for those babies who suffer from reflux.

The Bouncer is available in Cotton, Organic Cotton, and Mesh that is all Oeko-Tex Certified (Standard 100, Class I). Lightweight, easy-to-fold, and without the reliance of batteries, this is a classic, quality bouncy chair that can be either be used for more than one or passed along.

The BabyBjorn Toy for Bouncer is also available separately in either Flying Friends (left) or Googly Eyes (right) which attaches to the Bouncer.
