REVIEW: Bumbo -- Wonder Seat of the 21st Century

In the past year, the Bumbo seat has become a hot commodity! They've been known to sell out at most mass retailers and can earn a pretty penny on eBay. The supply has gotten better as the demand evened out, and I was able to get my hands on one a little over a month ago.

The seat is made from a low-density foam material. It has a deep middle that the child sinks into and the back wall helps support them in a sitting position. I couldn't believe how grown up the LLB looked in hers. It is easy to take with you and can be used on ANY flat hard surface. Best of all, it's super-easy to clean, just wipe it down!

They make a great on-the-go highchair, just pop it in place and feed. They now have trays for toys and feeding, so the seat is more versatile then ever. I can't even stress how amazing this seat is and what a true helper it is.

The bad news is your child will outgrow it pretty fast. Once they start arching their backs or become mobile this seat will lose it's luster and join the pile of retired things! All in all, for the price you really can't beat it. If you're smart you'll get it before your child turns 5 months and get some REAL use out of it! Also, as I stated the resell on eBay is pretty good and there's always craigslist, too!

LLB enjoyed it when we first got it

Then she learned to do this!
