A BETTER EXERSAUCER
Babies used to use walkers to practice standing and moving around. Walkers, however, can be dangerous. Most
standard walkers don't offer much support or any entertainment or educational value. The potential for babies to
use their new-found mobility to get out of a parent's sight, and possibly into a dangerous situation (like a fall
down stairs!) is one reason not many people use standard walkers anymore.
An ExerSaucer is the modern answer to a baby walker.
Although "Exersaucer" is the brand name of Evenflo's play saucers, the term has come into common usage to refer to
any stationary play center, baby activity center, baby play saucer, or stationary play circle like the one from the
award-winning Bright Starts company.
Bright Starts Tropical Fun Around We Go Activity Station is one of the best improvement in
exersaucer-style play stations to come around in a long time.
HOW IS AN EXERSAUCER BETTER?
An exersaucer style product is a safer product than a walker and it can entertain babies who are not yet
independently mobile. The Bright Starts Tropical Fun Around We Go Activity Center
features a sturdy round base and an attached seat for the baby. ExerSaucers and other stationary
entertainers let babies remain upright so they can practice standing and play with available toys while
taking in the action around them. Play saucers do not allow babies to move around a room, which eliminates the
safety concerns present with walkers, but because the seat of the Bright Starts activity
station can move all around the table, the baby can still practice walking and strengthening the legs while moving
all around the entertainment table.
Aside from the safety advantages of an exersaucer, these modern-day walkers can
entertain, educate, and stimulate a baby who would not yet be quite ready for a standard, old-fashioned walker. The
Bright Starts Tropical Fun Around We Go Activity Center can keep a baby busily, and safely, entertained
while not permitting the unlimited mobility that an old-style walker might allow.
Exersaucers and stationary entertainers like the ones from Bright Starts should only be used
once the baby has gained control of his/her head and neck.
