Good product info.  I did some parent research on the Babies R Us Website befiore I buy and one parent reviewed the Baby Einstien Exersaucer and said her child almost choke on the ribbons that were on top of a toy.  She reccommended that all parents cut them off - since they fray ad cause a choke hazard -  and when I went to the store - I looked for the ribbons and they were gone.   They are pictured on the boxbut the toy is now made without the ribbons.   It was nice to see that a serious issue had actually been addressed in a timely manner.   So another great reason to but the Baby E or any great saucer out there.

I have to admit to having never heard of an exersaucer....

Are they the same as a babywalker? As in do they actually move across the floor? Or are they stationary and it is just the plate that moves in a circle...? :)

Sorry for being a bit thick! I'm not sure they had these when DS was a baby....  ::)

Jo,

  no the exersaucers are different than the walkers. Really, "they" say the walkers are not very safe to use these days. Evidently there have been tons of accidents in past years w/ the walkers so the exercaucers is like a stationary walker. They just allow the baby to stand and turn around, but not move anywhere.  You are not thick at all! Things change w/ baby gear all the time!

They are worth it depending on when your child gets mobile.  Cheye walked at 10 mos so I got a couple of good months that it was a life saver.  Toby walked at 7 mos. and I think I put him in it like twice.

Thanks for clearing that up!

I too had heard that walkers were dangerous and refused to get one when DS was little, which is why I wanted to clarify what it was. I quite like the idea of a stationary version though so may have to consider it when this little one arrives!  :)
