Not all baby bouncers are created equal. There’s a significant difference between the best and worst baby bouncer brands, according to parents in the latest Which? survey.
We recently asked parents with children under five about their experiences with using baby bouncers/rocker chairs, so that we could rate the best and worst brands. There was a big difference between brands, with the top brand scoring 76% and the worst scoring just 56%.
Find out which brand came top, and which one to avoid, in our best and worst baby bouncer brands guide.

Best baby bouncer brands
We asked parents about a range of baby rocker chair brands including Fisher-Price, Mothercare, Babies R Us, Chicco, Bright Starts and Mamas & Papas.
Fisher-Price was the most owned brand (27%), followed be Mamas & Papas (11%) and Mothercare (10%). But where do they sit in our table from best to worst?
Parents rated each brand on the ease of getting their baby in and out, ease of cleaning, how comfortable their baby looks, ease of assembly and value for money. Each brand was given star ratings for each of these factors as well as an overall customer score.
