I really like this bouncer/baby seat for a couple of reasons: 1) it's much cheaper than some other brands out there 2) it has a modern design and doesn't scream "baby product" 3) you can use it from a very young age. My daughter is 4 months now and is only just beginning to make it bounce on her own, but from the day we brought her home it was a great place to put her where I knew she'd be safe. There are a couple cons: 1) if the baby isn't old enough to bounce it on her own you as the parent have to make it move for them. So it's not as great in the "soothing" dept. as motorized vibrating chairs. and 2) the way the legs flare out make it a serious toe stubbing hazard!
