Skip Hop vs. Baby Bjorn
We already had bought a Babybjorn baby bouncer when we learned about the Skip Hop Bouncer. We decided to purchase it so that we could compare both bouncers. Price-wise, they're pretty similar.
(Note: this is not a sponsored feedback; I paid full price for both items)
Pros: Easy to use; 3 recline positions; very light (you can lift it with one hand); compact so it's great for home and travel
Cons: Sits low on the floor; you have to remove the baby to change recline position; I wish there was a way to attach some mobile toy to entertain the baby
Pros: Adjustable height; easy to use (no assembly needed); looks good; comes with detachable toy to entertain baby (although very basic)
Cons: Recline position is NOT adjustable and it's too upright for a young infant (I'd say baby < 3 months); difficult to move from one room to another because it's too heavy to carry with one arm (while you're carrying the baby with the other)
My baby looked equally comfortable in both bouncers, although I didn't like that the Skip Hop's sit position is way too upright. My guess is that this bouncer would be perfect when he's at least 4 months old, by which time he'll be ready for a normal high chair anyway. Because it's heavier and it takes more space, we decided to return the Skip Hop bouncer and keep the Babybjorn. We use it mostly to keep the baby close when we take a shower and at dinner time (we put the bouncer on the dining table, which is something you are NOT supposed to do, but our dining table is very big so we have a lot of space and we never leave him alone on the table--obviously).

No Assembly Required!
This is ready to use straight out of the box. We did not have to assemble anything except the little mobile that just latched on and insert some batteries. This is a wonderful bouncer that we purchased to use at the dining table and kitchen so that baby can be around family. We opted to buy this instead of other bouncers because of the quality and durability.

good product if you are looking for something at a higher level. however be certain its not an automatic bouncer. nicely made. ran too small for my slightly tall baby. but i used it aplenty!!

Got this for my twins when they were about 6 weeks old. Really like it. I was worried it would be too much sitting up but it is just perfect for them.

It doesn't bounce like they say it does
It doesn't bounce like they say it does, but it's a nice chair. It goes up and down. I like thet fact that it can be adjusted to different levels.

Good but way overpriced. You really don't need that much and you won't use it long

This is a great bouncer. I love that it is adjustable for multi-levels, you can be on the floor, or sitting on a couch and still have your little one handy. this also works well for times when you have your hands full, cooking dinner, taking a shower, etc. baby is safe and sound strapped into this bouncer. There are a few settings, but I find that baby is most entertained with her/his own legs moving up and down and making it bounce a little.
very nice, well made, love the new fashionable color.
Awesome, awesome, awesome. only thing missing would be locking wheels, to move this around more easily, otherwise, perfect.
Update: Having used this about 20 times from infant age 3 - 6 months old, the straps are already coming apart. This was unexpected, the straps are just sewn into the seam of the thing and not through the back with an anchor. It is coming apart on both sides. (see pic) the weight limit is 25 lbs and the infant is clearly under that weight limit.

It's nice but...
This thing is nice but the design is flawed. It is hard to get my baby in and out of it.

Just as described
