Jumperoo or no?


Help!
I just canít decide what to do. I had one for Rio and he did love it but we probably wouldíve done just fine without it. I was thinking of getting Niko one as his main Christmas present but now Iím doubting it. I donít really want huge things in the way, I remember it was massive and got on my nerves, we already have a big swing in the room this time around. But I also remember how much fun Rio had in it.
What are peopleís thoughts on them? Yes or no and why? And if no, what else can I get instead of similar Ďfun factorí and good enough to be a main present for a 5 month old? I feel like a first time mum here itís crazy how much Iím questioning this time around!?

We loved ours and I would definitely have one for my next kid. She outgrew her swing way before the jumperoo. They do a space saver one as well now.

We got ours second hand from a friend, we gave her £40 for it. I then passed it on to another friend for free and her son broke it as he was heavy and big for his age 😂 I'd definitely buy second hand again and do something different for a main present!

Gracie was a similar age for her first Christmas, well, slightly younger (10 weeks) and we got her mainly things she needed as she was so young.

I love jumparoos for my babies. I've made sure all of my babies have had them, and they all enjoyed them! I get rid of the swing as soon as my babies start trying to climb out of it, which was around 3-4 months old. My fifth-born is going to be 3 months old this week, and she's already starting to try to sit up in the swing, so I know she won't be able to use it much longer. Since she's reaching out and grabbing things, as soon as she starts to climb out of it, I'll replace it with the jumperoo (which I rig so my babies who aren't standing well on their own can sit in a position that's safe for their hips and not dangle from the crotch, which is important!).

Thanks ladies. Perhaps Iíve forgot how helpful it was lol. Iím just being selfish and thinking of the space but I know he will love it.
Now youíve mentioned the swing and getting rid when he sits up, what do I do next!? Rio didnít have a swing just a floor chair thing and he was in that til he was about 8-9 months old or so. He used to sit in it and climb in and out himself. Obviously Niko wonít be able to do that in his swing so am I ok to use just the seat part afterwards (it detaches) ??? Why am I so clueless

I had a jumperoo, because of the bounce motion my son took longer to learn to walk and had to attend physiotherapy. The first thing they asked was does he have a jumperoo I said yes and they told me to get rid of it. I'm sure they are fine in short bursts but jist something to keep an eye out for xx

I've never had one, but my son does enjoy the one at play group. We have the jolly jumper hanging from the ceiling between the kitchen and living room and both my kids absolutely love(d) it!! If you don't want one taking up space then I wouldn't bother getting one, he won't know any different so he will be fine! As for what would be "good enough" as a main Christmas present, since he'll be 5 months old and have no idea what Christmas is, or what a present is for that matter, I wouldn't worry too much about that. For my daughter's first Christmas we just got her a couple of books. If there isn't anything he really needs then I wouldn't worry about going overboard on a Christmas present. Save the money/sentiment for when he will understand and appreciate it.

Yeah I have read that they are a big no no for development but I'm no expert so do your research, perhaps used now and then it isn't so bad??

W LOVED hers- it meant she could Ďstandí and see what was going on rather than just being on the floor and she could bounce, turn and play all of her own accord.

She did sound like she was going to crash through the ceiling/floor a few times though
