We call this toy our baby leg press machine!
Any toy / seat / swing, etc when it comes down to it, is always going to be hit or miss with your child. It can have all the features in the world and sometimes your little one just won't like it. With this product, my 10 week old daughter seems okay with it. She likes to kick when lying in her crib so we liked the idea of this bouncy seat. When she's in this she can kick and move her self, but hasn't really learned (or hasn't developed the strength yet) to really launch the sled backwards and activate the lights and sound.
It was easy to put together, I really like the music (both the fast beat session and the soothing tunes). I also like the 2 settings for the vibration. The cushion is very soft and the colors are true to what you see on the computer. The toys attached at the foot pad are quite lame, I don't like the way they look (which you can see here) but I excpected more movement out of them when the footpad is kicked - but their mounting spring is way too tight (they don't move at all)
For those who say this isn't for a shorter baby, I disagree. Just scoot your baby closer to the footpad - you can adjust the straps and make them longer. Or, you can put a book on the footpad for your baby to kick. for reference, my daughter was 9 weeks old in this picture, 10+ pounds and 22" long.
All in all, the product is good, but it is pricey. Definitely go for the site to store shipping or wait for 97 cent shipping. You're taking a somewhat expensive risk if your child will like it but like I said, you do that with any toy you buy your kids - sometimes they just want to play with the box it came in :-)
