Jumperoo style toy for older/heavier babies?

My enormous 5 month old baby is loving playing in his cousin's Fisher Price Jumperoo - but because my baby is so enormous - he's going to be over the 25 pound weight limit in no time. Does anyone have any recommendations for a jumperaoo type thingy that takes heavier babies?! I don't want to buy one for £100 if he's going to grow out of it in 4 weeks!

Thank you!

My DS is a giant too. We had this:

I got ours in Mothercare- not sure if they stock it now though, couldn't see it on their website.

He's now 11mo and 84cm tall and about 32lb and would still be fine on the highest setting (although we don't use it because he much prefers to scamper about).

Pros: suitable for a big child, doesn't take up quite as much floor space as the jumperoo, bit cheaper than the jumperoo, really easy to add your own toys to the loops so you can keep it interesting.

Cons: the seat is stiff. Despite being strong DS never learned to spin it around by himself, I always had to turn it for him when he wanted a different view!
