My son was very big (9lbs 9oz) at birth. By 3 months he wanted to stand and bounce and this toy was perfect. On the lowest setting he could touch the bottom (he was 99% for height however). Nothing was necessary to keep him properly positioned, he could reach all the toys and to this day (he is 6 months now) we have not yet put batteries in it! It's entertaining without the bells and whistles and he plays in it several times a day. He loves being eye level with his big sister. This is incredibly compact and doesn't take up a large space. The seat is easy to remove and clean. I absolutely love this toy.
