Bright Starts Springin’ Safari Bounce-A-Round Review

 Em’s Glorious New Addition


Bright Starts Springin’ Safari Bounce-A-Round

This lovely bundle of joy arrived at our door.  Yes- I mean that.  

The Toddler was all too happy to join in on the building of the Bounce-A-Round which made set-up harder, not impossible, but infinitely harder. Of course I could have been smart about it and waited for nap time to put this beauty together… but I was too darn excited.  Plus, he really does try to “help” me with anything and everything during the day and watching him listen to me as we put together Em’s activity center was priceless.

All packages are clearly labeled-obviously someone knew what they were doing-and set-up was headache free.

The only tool I needed was a screwdriver and some good ole fashioned hand strength!  Please note that I have arthritis-at 29 no less-but was still able to man-handle all of the pieces together with only the assistance of my little man.  He didn’t actually put anything together-but he did help arrange the toys and pieces on the floor and handed me each piece as I went through the instructions.  

Oh yes.  The instruction book.  I have put together many, many toys over the past couple of years. So I believe I can truly appreciate a simple-step-by-step instruction book with plenty of helpful pictures.  The little things in life people. Little things.

I did not have to call-but I like the fact that they take care of their customers.

Em started in the Springin’ Safari Bounce-A-Round when she was just four months old!  FOUR MONTHS.  I was hesitant, although Bright Starts states that this product is for 4+ Months, and she LOVED it.  LOVED. 

Taken right after The Toddler and I put the activity center together.  The Toddler is leaning in to kiss her head.  Such a sweetheart.

I was singing. I was not in choir if you know what I mean.  But I had to partake in a happy dance, sing off after putting this baby together.  She was not amused.

BUT… at just four months old she was able to play with all of the toys by herself.  She could not pivot at that time nor push the lion down but all of the other 12+ activities were immediately available for her enjoyment.

You see that green base?  It acts as a sort of trampoline-adorable-just enough bounce at this age.  I am sure when she gets a better hang of “standing” the real jumping will occur.

That butterfly is one of our many Bright Starts toys that we have in our arsenal.  I love being able to switch-up one of the toys whenever I want to!


After two weeks of exploring this toy Em is getting more adventurous with her surroundings…. at four and a half months she can pivot around AND use all of the activities available.  I love watching her learn and explore.


I can not say enough good things about this activity center.  There are A LOT of them on the market.  The Bright Starts Springin’ Safari Bounce-A-Round is high-quality, features multiple textures and can literally GROW with my child as she gets bigger, stronger, AND wiser.  I whole-heartedly give my stamp of approval on this.  If you do not own an activity center go out and get this one-right now.  HERE.
