this was something we had at grandmas house and kept him entertained for a while..
My son LOVED this toy soo much! His whole face just lit up when I put him in it and he played himself out! He loved being able to spin around and play with the different toys. The seat appears to have been very comfy - he would play in it for hours! He continued playing with it for months from the outside after he learned to walk. This was definitely a mommy sanity saver!

THE REAL SCOOP
What a great toy! The "discovery centre" comes with an abundance of colourful and fun toys for my 4.5 month old baby to play with, which helps this newly minted mommy gain a few minutes to take care of stuff around the house.
The centre is solidly made and easy to put together... I put it together in half an hour or so by myself, the instructions are clearcut and illustrated. My son wasn't able to touch the bottom yet when we first put him in the unit, but a small flat cushion helped rectify that quickly, and it is astounding to see how much it is strengthening his legs. He now "stands" in the unit, and sits down when his legs get tired... moving with intense focus from one toy to the next. There is one toy (piano) that requires batteries, but the others keep the little one amused without batteries.
I love interacting with him and having him show me the different toys; there is a lion hand puppet that you can use to play with the baby, and the biggest kick for me is when he presses the keys on the piano and he sees me dancing to the music. The joy in his face is instant, as he tries to sway with the music as well.
Compared to other "exersaucers", this Baby Einstein might be a bit pricier, but I found that it feels like it is a well-made, solid toy that I would re-purchase. There is a great variety in toys on the unit, which means that babies aren't going to be bored too quickly. Toy tray loops mean that you can put your own towns in there as well. Great for babies who are able to hold their heads up by themselves but not able to stand or walk.
Wish it were slightly less expensive but still highly recommend!
