We bought this exersaucer for our third daughter because we had gotten rid of the one we had for our first two kids, and needed a new one. It's a great place for baby to play when she's no longer content to lay on the floor, and wants to learn how to be upright, so we feel it is an essential part of baby's first year. This exersaucer is priced reasonably, as far as exersaucers go, and we were able to get it for even less on sale before Christmas. So far we are very happy with it. It is nice and sturdy, and comparable to the first one we owned. There are lots of fun, colorful toys that offer different motor activities for baby to learn. It has three height settings to grow with baby until she's ready to walk, and this one even has a snack tray (though I don't really plan on giving her snacks in her exersaucer). The only downside is that it doesn't fold up for storage and travel, like our other one did, but since we don't really plan on doing much travel with it, it's really not a problem to just leave it set up in our living room. It gets used everyday, so it's just a part of our life right now! It holds up well, too, even with my to preschoolers playing with it. Definitely happy with this purchase.
