First Years Kickin' Coaster

Mommy's Lil Helper: First Years Kickin' Coaster

Some babies just don't like swings. I feel for their poor parents, but luckily there are other options for those picky babies. The First Years Kickin' Coaster ($70) is a baby seat that is similar to a bouncer, but has the added bells and whistles that usually come with a swing.

Instead of sitting in a stationary position, tots can use their wee feet to kick off a mesh screen and move up and down on a sliding mechanism. In addition to the horizontal motion, the chair also vibrates, lights up, and plays a few tunes. I am convinced that the same people who invented the Sharper Image massage chairs were also responsible for this creation. If there were such a thing as a baby mall, tots would be lining up to get their massage fix and entertainment value for the day.

To see what I wasn't so fond of,


It's a swell product, but I would have designed it with more decorative fabric so it would not clash so much with a house's decor. I don't mind a little plastic and color, but this certainly gets put away when adult company visits. But if baby is happy, I guess the aesthetics don't matter so much . . .

That baby is so little and looks so happy! I bet my busy little guy would have loved that when he was small.

oops, forgot to add trhe most important part! I would SO buy this.. my first would have loved it! She was never really interested in her swing, but we hit the jackpot when she got old enough to sit in the jumperoo from fisher price.. she loves bouncing. We will see how the next one is, and might get this or something like this

I dont find muted green and yellow to be that babyish, honestly.. i would think youd be more willing to put objects like the ranforest collection and such away then this.. This is downright subtle,,
