BabyBjörn Bouncer Bliss Review – A Classic Baby Bouncer in New Styles
BabyBjörn is a brand that I grew up with myself, so it will always have a special place in my heart. The Swedish brand has been making amazing baby and children’s products for many years and they keep coming up with new ideas and design updates for their classic items.
I’ve always liked the sleek look of BabyBjörn’s bouncers— they look stylish in any home and also look very comfortable and ergonomic for babies. The bouncer provides proper support for your baby’s head, neck and back and provides a safe a comfortable place for your baby to play, rest and nap.
The BabyBjörn bouncer has a unique bouncing action that doesn’t need any batteries at all — it simply rocks gently when your baby moves their legs or arms. This also helps your baby to train and develop their balance and motor skills.
The bouncer can be used from newborn age (minimum weight 3.5kg) up to 2 years (maximum weight 13kg) which is great as most bouncer don’t last anywhere near this long. The secret to this is that you can take the cover off and turn it around so that the harness goes to the back. This creates a seat on the opposite side, where a toddler can sit instead.
“We wanted to create a new design as a tribute to our classic bouncer from 1961. We are so happy that so many families love our bouncer. We wanted to create a soft and contemporary look and feel that suits the style and personality of our customers, in colours that work in many homes.”
Lillemor Jakobson, BabyBjörn creative director and founder
The classic bouncer has had a new update with a new cover made of 100% cotton with a stitched pattern design and a grey frame to compliment softer interior styles. The cotton one is available in Black, Anthracite, Confetti Blue and Yellow.
There’s also a soft and airy mesh fabric option for your Bouncer Bliss and this is available in a range of stylish colours: Vintage Rose, Greige, Frost Green, Navy Blue, Lavender Violet, Powder Pink and Anthracite.
The soft fabrics are a great feature as they make a seat that distributes your baby’s weight evenly. Naturally, all the materials used are safe for babies and the cover is really easy to clean too as you can simply take it off and wash it in your washing machine at 40˚C. The mesh one dries really quickly which is handy if you have a sicky baby and need to wash the cover often. You can purchase spare covers separately too.
We have the bouncer in the Mesh Anthracite which is really nice and cool for your little one — perfect for summer. I don’t have a baby at the moment but will have a Baby No. 3 one day and this will be great for then but it’s also lovely for my toddler now to use as a chair. Above you can see that we’ve turned to cover around to create a toddler chair.
When you have a newborn or a young baby, a bouncer is one of the few items that I would definitely call an essential (along with a baby carrier!) as it provides a safe place for your baby to relax, play or nap nearby which you need when you need to get some chores done, cook dinner, work or have a shower. You can also use them as a seat for your baby to sit in when you start weaning.
The bouncer has three different positions for play, rest and sleep and it’s really easy to swap between these as needed.
Another thing that I really love about the BabyBjörn Bliss bouncer is that it folds flat which means it takes up very little space in storage and that it’s easy to take with you when travelling if needed. You can easily pack it into your car when visiting friends and family, for example. You can buy a separate travel bag to keep it protected in transit, too.
BabyBjörn has delivered again! The bouncer lives up to all my expectations and more! We love it and would highly recommend it to other parents.
I'm a mum in my early 30s with over 15 years of childcare experience working as a private nanny, babysitter and a few years as a nursery teacher. I am also an approved foster carer and now I've got my own family too! I love finding great products for babies, children and mums.
