I have used this bouncer with my newborn for a little over a week and so far we love it! The sheer fact that the bouncer is automatic is enough for me to recommend this bouncer to any new parent. Esthetically the bouncer is great. The colors are very neutral and not tacky like other infant products on the market. I also have been very happy the pivoting toy bar – it makes it very easy to get our little one in and out with no risk of bumping her head. Also, the animals are really adorable and my daughter (now 4 weeks) has just started to notice them. My daughter has really enjoyed the heartbeat vibrations and it typically puts her right to sleep. This has allowed Mom to get a quick shower in or dinner on the table (I am sure any new parent can relate to this!) I have not seen any other bouncer that offers the heartbeat vibrations so I think this is very unique. Lastly I have to add that we have had one major diaper blowout in this bouncer and the upholstery washed up great! The removable infant insert was all that we needed to wash. The only con that I currently have about this product is the music. I really like the music and all of the options but it is very quite. The speaker sits underneath the bouncer so the sound is much more muted then I would like. Overall this is a wonderful product and I look forward to seeing how my daughter enjoys it in the coming months ahead.

Love the look of the chair - the colors and hippos - and although I see why some people have commented that it's rickety, I don't have any concerns that it won't support our baby.Our daughter hated the chair in the beginning, but in large part I think that was because she didn't like being put down at all. :) She's now warmed up to it (happened at about 2.5 - 3 months) and we put her in the chair frequently with toys to amuse herself while we're doing other things.My big disappointment is the bouncing. I'm honestly not sure how much the chair is supposed to do on its own, but what it does is barely perceptible. I think our daughter might have gone into it more easily when she was younger if it actually bounced at all, but it just doesn't. The music and sounds are also pretty faint. We didn't feel the need to use them much, but if someone's looking for that feature, I don't think it really comes through.There are a few other disappointments as well. As another reviewer said, I also wish it plugged in rather than/in addition to taking batteries (although we've yet to go through a set of batteries because we so rarely use any of the electronic features - they don't do enough to warrant turning it on). Finally, it would be nice if the bar above the seat had loops or was thinner in order to be able to attach more toys. You're kind of stuck with the hippos that come attached, and now that our daughter's reaching for and grabbing things, I'd like to be able to hang rings and other toys from the bar, but it really isn't set up to do that.Overall, the seat now works fine as a place to sit our baby, but it's just that: a seat, and we could have paid less to get one of those. If you're really looking for a bouncer, seat that makes sounds, or something that's adaptable for additional toys, I'd keep looking.

Does not bounce.
Comments about Ingenuity Gentle Automatic Bouncer - Emerson:
Bought the bouncer only to find out it doesn't bounce at all. The only time it moves is if baby moves. Horrible buy. Don't recommend at all.

does it have to work?
from Brooklyn, New York
But this for my niece's baby after a month that I see the baby find out the bouncer does not work so I change the batteries thinking maybe the batteries we're not new. I went to the store and bought brand new batteries and it still does not bounce . I felt like I gave my niece a terrible gift.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I enjoyed(still enjoying) use of this gift. It has been of good use from about 6 wks to 3.5 months. Baby likes music and motion. Volume can be adjusted to near barely audible. Motion sound is tolerable...not too loud.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
BEST BOUNCER EVER!!!
from Blacklick, Ohio
I was given one of these... not this particular theme, but one that was a bit older. Still the best thing ever. A bouncer that actually BOUNCES!!! What a concept.

About Me First Time Parent
It's decent. The music function is nice but the bounce barely moves. I still ended up having to bounce it myself. For the price, you would expect a good bounce. But my daughter is comfortable in it so 3 stars.
Not bad for the price
from Lynnwood, Wa
I bought this bouncer on a whim. It's cute and soft and works pretty well. The heartbeat vibrations are just bounces to a heartbeat rhythm, I was thinking it would be more of an actual vibrating function. The base seems a little unsturdy and overall it seems a little cheap, but I feel I got what I paid for. The instructions were just pictures and were a little hard to follow along, but it only took took 15 minutes to put together, including distractions.The color scheme is great and gender neutral, it does automatically bounce, the cute little plush cows really grab my baby's attention, it's very light weight, it was affordable and my baby enjoys the bouncing.I probably wouldn't buy this again or buy it for any of my new mom friends. I question its durability and I think there are better products out there.

I love the design of the bouncer and my daughter enjoys playing with toys and napping with it. the bouncing and vibration is pretty weak, but my daughter doesn't seem to mind not having it on.

Great product. Baby loves it.
I don't recommend this product
from Carson, ca
I am not happy with this product. I recently bought the product 2 weeks ago at Toys R Us and the power button already broke. I called the manufacturer and the item was discontinued. Luckily, the company is going to send me a new unit. I hope the new unit that they will send me will be better than the one I purchased
