Kidadl's Top Pick
The Kidadl Top Pick is what we feel is, quite simply, the best product in its category.
1. Munchkin Bounce and Play Baby Door Bouncer (Lenny the Lion)
Consensus is, this is the best door frame baby bouncer on the market. The first thing to point out with this one is the price – you shouldn't have to pay more than £30 for one, and that's very good indeed for a new door bouncer. It's not like you're compromising on quality either – the frame of the bouncer is sturdy, the seat is comfy and well made, and there are straps that make this an adjustable baby bouncer, ensuring a good fit for your child. You can pay a fair bit more for a bouncer and get more bells and whistles, but your child will absolutely love the Munchkin, and it should be your first port of call.
- Price: £20.50
- Adorable lion called Lenny on the front
Best Premium Baby Door Bouncer
2. Jolly Jumper Baby Exerciser
The Jolly Jumper is a similarly good bet, from a company that have been making the best door bouncers for babies for decades. It certainly isn't as eye catching as the Munchkin – no cute lion design – but for the purposes of giving a baby a fun burst of exercise in a controlled environment, it does the job perfectly well. It's also a particularly safe and supportive bouncer, and compact too, which is obviously ideal if you're travelling with a baby. The only knock is the price, which is over double that of the Munchkin. It's certainly not twice as good, but to an extent, you're paying for a very reputable brand with a hard-earned reputation for quality. You won't go far wrong with the Jolly Jumper.
- Price: £84.99
- Suitable for use from 3 months, with a maximum weight of 28 lbs
Best For Little Disney Lovers
3. Bright Starts/Disney Baby Minnie Mouse Door Jumper
Disney Baby do a vast range of officially branded products, but this Minnie Mouse Door Jumper offers a little bit more than just a baby bouncer with her face printed on the front. The material her face is made out of is actually 3-D crinkle fabric, which is a really clever idea. It adds an extra something to the experience for little ones to have something tactile to work with their hands, alongside all the exercise they get from the Jumper itself. The bouncer is easy to assemble, and with the prestige of the Disney brand attached, you know there's going to have been care and attention put into this.
- Price: £44.95
Best Back Up Door Baby Bouncer
4. Munchkin Bounce About Bouncer
Another offering from Munchkin, another quality baby door bouncer. It has similar things going for it, namely excellent quality and safety at superb value. Munchkin are a consistently good option for door bouncers. We've seen suggestions that this would make a good back up bouncer to the slightly more enticing Lenny the Lion, if for whatever reason you're in need of a spare.
- Price: £26.99
- Easy to assemble, and to get your baby in and out
Best Door Bouncer For Families On A Budget
5. Costway Baby Jumper Door Bouncer
A rock-solid budget option, and as such one of the best door bouncers to consider. A brand name like COSTWAY implies value for money, and indeed this is one of the cheaper options on the market. Reviews suggest you get a very good product – when you're going for a budget option, you're probably looking for something that is at the very least safe and durable, and this item ticks both boxes.
- Price: £25.95
Best Baby Bouncer For Special Features
6. Bright Starts Door Jumper Bounce 'n' Spring Deluxe
Another reasonably priced option and this one is more vibrant and colourful than some of the other bouncers. It also comes with four attached toys – a soft zebra and giraffe, a small mirror, and some teethers. Even if your baby doesn't immediately take to bouncing (it's hard to predict these things!) they're sure to find those extras fun and stimulating.
- Price: £32.99
- Comes with 4 toys including a plush zebra, giraffe, a teether, and mirrors.
Best For Exploring The Ocean
7. Baby Einstein Sea & Discover Door Jumper
Baby Einstein's door jumper also comes with some toys included, most of them with an ocean theme. There's the mirror, a neptune rattle, crinkle flash cards with ocean images on them, and a toy starfish! You can also detach and reattach the toys to the bouncer to keep things fresh for your baby.
- Price: £34.06
- Comes with detachable ocean-themed toys
Best Baby Door Bouncers For Comfort
8. Hauck Jump Baby Jumper Door Bouncer
Decked out in eye catching blue, yellow and red, these Hauck bouncers certainly stand out, but it also has a couple of distinctive design features that really elevate it into being a top buy. The chair is padded, deep, and particularly high quality, and there's also a little built-in tray table so babies have somewhere to rest their toys. The main criticism of it in the reviews seems to be that's a little bit too stiff, which inhibits the child's ability to, well, jump. But most parents seem very happy with this door frame jumper. It's another reasonably priced and reliable option for a door bouncer for baby.
- Price: £34.99
- Suitable for use from 6 months, with a weight of up to 26 lbs
Best Baby Door Bouncers For Safety
9. GYMAX Baby Activity Jumper
The GYMAX is plain and barebones, but under £30, and is high quality enough for you to get plenty of value for money. The door clamp is tough, and will keep the jumper firmly in place no matter how vigorously your baby might test it. This will make sure your child doesn't topple or cause damage to any door frames. It's comfy for a baby to slip into as well, and of course, it's lightweight and portable, so can be taken easily wherever you need to use it.
- Price: £26.95
- A simple but effective jumper
Best Free-Standing Jumper
10. Fisher-Price Roaring Rainforest Baby Jumperoo
Obviously, this isn't a door jumper, but it's worth looking at a free-standing option, just by way of comparison. This one from Fisher-Price is probably the best available at the moment. It's well made, colourful, comes laden with rainforest-themed toys, and with the addition of batteries it lights up and plays music and sounds for added stimulation. All this ramps the price up to £79.99, more expensive than even the priciest door jumper, but free-standing options tend to have more freedom to include additional features. If you're looking for a more comprehensive experience for your baby, the extra money could be worth it.
- Price: £79.99
- Plays music and sounds and lights up
- 3 adjustable height settings
