There are few things that make babies shriek with joy like jumpers. These seats attached to elastic straps let your tyke use their toes to push off the ground and get a little air.

The result: Huge smiles and peals of laughter. Stand by and capture it on video or use your child’s preoccupation with bouncing up and down to get a few things done around the house (always stay within eyesight though).

Jumpers come in two versions:

  • Doorway jumpers have straps that clamp to the top of the doorway. They take up less space but can be inconvenient if you need to walk through the doorway. (Tip: If your house has really wide moldings or other unusual features, doorway jumpers might not work with them.)

  • Freestanding jumpers have an all-in-one structure with straps that attach to built-in rods. They can be placed anywhere in the house, but they tend to take up more room.

Both designs require that your child can hold their head upright unassisted before being able to use it. Kids enjoy jumpers most between six months to a year old.

Let your tot exercise their toes and legs and feel the thrill of being able to propel their body with these jumpers.

Built-In Buffer

Your little one can bust all the moves they want in this doorway jumper without damaging your doorframe, thanks to a bumper that surrounds the entire seat. And, the door clamp—which is a cinch to apply—won’t scuff your moldings. When baby’s not bobbing around, there are two clip-on toys to play with and a built-in toy tray where you can place their favorite plush or plastic friends. When playtime is over, the plastic dome keeps straps from twisting so you can easily remove your baby.

Classic Go-To

This classic jumper relies solely on your baby’s fascination with bopping up and down to keep her entertained. And it does! The triangle-shaped seat keeps your little one safely encased, and the seat material comes in nine different color patterns. Two bungee straps make swinging side to side less likely, too.

For Minimalists

Making kids smile since 1948, the Jolly Jumper also makes parents happy with its slim profile. Unlike other doorway jumpers, this one doesn’t have a molded seat but instead has a fabric saddle that provides a safe and snug fit. It’s perfect for those who need something that doesn’t take up too much space and can be easily stowed away. Jolly Jumper also makes a stand version.

Ultimate Entertainer

The freestanding Fisher-Price Jumperoo costs more than simpler doorway jumpers, but that’s because it doubles as an activity center, too. When your tot isn’t bouncing up and down, they can reach overhead for hanging plushies and spin the seat in a full circle to reach all the toys built into the tray. Lights and music go off when your baby bounces up and down or spins a toy on the tray.

For Busy Babies

Like the Fisher-Price Jumperoo, this Baby Einstein jumper is also an activity center. It surrounds your baby in a full circle of toys with a seat that rotates 360 degrees so they can access all of them. Toys like a spinning frog bead chaser and rattle drum filled with beads delight children. But what babies love most is banging on the piano that has lights and three modes: classical melodies, piano key tones and language discovery in English, Spanish and French.
