Best Basic Baby Bouncer

Morning Everyone,

Can anyone recommend good baby bouncers, hoping not to spend anymore than £50-£70 so probably one without lights/ sounds/ vibrations etc?

We are looking for a bouncer rather than a rocker as we have the Shnuggle Moses basket that can invert into a rocker, and are hoping for something baby can bounce themselves in as they get bigger & stronger.

Many thanks!


This thread is a little old now so some of the suggestions may be out of date, but if you’re looking for recommendations, we’ve recently updated our best baby bouncer page with lots of great options tried and tested by MNHQ. including some more budget-friendly options. We hope you find it useful. Flowers

The baby bjorn one is good. Expensive but lots of my friends had ones they picked up second hand if that’s an option. We had a super basic one with nothing on it, but three kids have been v happy in it. So no need to spend loads.

Another vote for the Baby Bjorn, we have it and it's still going strong for DC2. Great piece of kit. As PP said you can get them second hand. The fabric is machine washable and the frame is easily cleaned.

Had a chicco hoopla for DD and going to buy one for when DC#3 arrives in c10 weeks. Lovely and snug, sturdy, folds down flat.
They're £45-50 new so within your price range

Also recommend Baby Bjorn. It's above the budget you stated brand new but they are so durable and easy to get second hand via fb or ebay. Cover goes in the wash too

I've been looking at the chad Valley bouncers @ argos for £30. Basic but will do the job like ones we've had before.

baby bjorn all the way. Second hand should be doable in your budget and as PP have said, easily washable

We had a baby Bjorne one. In my opinion it’s cosy for small babies but not necessarily the best.

I got a cheap bouncer for DD2 for upstairs when I was getting ready and she much preferred this one.

We had a bog standard Redkite one, it played music and vibrated cam with a bar over and a couple of toys that dangled. Did the job and DD loved it

Second hand baby bjorn with toy bar. Best by far.

I'd second for the Chicco Hoopla, really cozy and my little one lives it. We got ours from John Lewis and it was £50 delivered home.
