The Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer is made for babies that are 25 pounds and up.  It is like a classic baby bouncer, but elevated to sofa height.  It was designed to naturally integrate your baby into family moments without your baby being so low to the ground.  This bouncer starts as a traditional floor bouncer and can be elevated to sofa height or any level in between with just a simple turn of the knob.  This baby bouncer was designed to keep your baby in-sight, engaged, and safely supported.

The color is neutral so it will fit into any contemporary home.  Features include vibration, sounds, and a range of other baby-friendly interesting features.

This bouncer has a 5-point harness with a washable cotton-blend cushioned infant insert.  The Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer plays two melodies and also two soothing sound effects (heartbeat and ocean waves) with volume control.  There is an auto-off feature set to turn off at 20 minutes.

For safety, the base is steady and wide.  Included is a tuck-away toy bar with a baby-safe mirror toy.  You can also swap out the mirror for a ringed toy.  A big bonus is that you will not need to spend time putting this bouncer together.  It comes fully assembled and also folds for storage.

This bouncer takes three C batteries.

The dimension of the bouncer is 30 length x 20 width x 31 height.  The weight is 13.5 pounds.

Safety

When used correctly, this is a very safe baby bouncer.  The manufacturer recommends that you do not use it when flat.  Do not carry it with your baby in the seat or place it on a table or counter.  Also, do not raise or lower this bouncer with the baby in the seat.  Here is one comment about safety and this bouncer,

"The 4 point harness keeps babies in place, and more importantly, safe. All in all - we rate this bouncer top notch. It's a must have and I've already told everyone I know that this is worth every penny!"

Durability

The Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer is a durable bouncer.  It is a bit heavy at 13.5 pounds, but that is part of what makes it durable.  Here is one parent comment on the durability,

"We opted to buy this instead of other bouncers because of the quality and durability."  

And another,

"The build materials feel well made. The plastic is sturdy and durable, and the metal didn't feel cheap or unfinished."

Price

The price of this baby bouncer is right about in the middle considering the features and how well it is made.  Most parents felt like they paid a fair price for the Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer.

Size

The dimension of the bouncer is 30 length x 20 width x 31 height.  The weight is 13.5 pounds.  Some parents did find that this bouncer was a bit heavy, but they also realized that this made it safer.  Here is one of the comments on the size/weight,

 "...heavy!  The weight seems necessary for this thing to be safe, but it's not the easiest to move around the house."  

And another comment on the weight,

"There isn't much I don't like about this seat. The size and weight are a bit cumbersome compared to the average super lightweight bouncy seat. I'm used to being able to easily pick my bouncy seat up with one hand and place it down, ready to use, in another room."

Ease of Set Up

Listen this parents - The Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer comes fully assembled!  A round of applause here for the manufacturer is well deserved.  The last bouncer that I reviewed took most parents at least an hour to assemble. This is definitely a great selling point for this bouncer.

Parents who didn't realize that this bouncer came assembled were pleasantly surprised to open the box and find a baby bouncer ready to go.  Here is one comment on the set up,

"When we first got this, I let it sit in my front room for a day before I begged my husband to put it together. When he opened up the box, I was shocked. This thing came 90% assembled. A simple allen key to unlock the positioning, a snap of the mobile, and we were all done. Considering the 10 other items I purchased required full assembly, I was ready to return everything for SkipHop branded things."

Features

baby bouncers

The most popular feature of the Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer is the fact that it elevates.  With most of the other similar bouncers, the baby is close to ground level. This height adjustment feature was a big hit with parents.  Here is just one of the many positive comments on the multi-level height feature,

"With this bouncer, we can immediately see the difference. When we put her in, she starts kicking and smiling. I think she just loves being at a similar height as our seated height."

And another,

"We love the height this bouncer gives. Our little one can be table side when we need her, and lowered for playtime with her sister and dog with a few small twists - It's really a simple twist to adjust the height."

My Conclusion 

I'm surprised that the Skip Hop Uplift Multi-Level Adjustable Bouncer didn't have more reviews.  It seems to be one of the most well built baby bouncers on the market.  Parents liked that the bouncer could be raised so that their babies weren't at just above floor level.  The price is neither low or high, but rather right about in the middle for what you get with this bouncer.  I hope my review helps you as you look to purchase the best baby bouncer for your child.
