Stupid amazon spoofing

Review of an exersaucer:
I bought this exersaucer when my daughter was 3 months old and had enough head control for an upright toy. We already had a jumperoo that I had received as a gift, and since she really enjoyed playing in that, I thought an exersaucer (with so many more toys than the jumperoo) would be even more fun. I also felt that the exersaucer would be a bit easier for her to use at first since at its lowest setting it's lower than the jumperoo and therefore better for slightly smaller children.

At first, the sheer number of toys was extremely overwhelming to my daughter. She would only stay in the exersaucer for a minute or two before she started to cry. We kept putting her in for a minute or two every day, and she quickly worked up to sitting in it for five minutes or more.


Review of a different model by a different reviewer:
I bought this exersaucer when my son was 5 months old and had enough head control for an upright toy. We already had a jumperoo that I had received as a gift, but it looked like my son was not really that interested in it,I really wanted something that would entertain my son for a bit so I could have a few minutes to do something I thought an exersaucer (with so many more toys than the jumperoo) would be even more fun. I also felt that the exersaucer would be a bit easier for him to use at first since at its lowest setting it's lower than the jumperoo and therefore better for slightly smaller children.

At first, the bright colors were a bit overwhelming to him.he would stay in it for a little while then start crying .Not wanting to pack and return this heavy item i would put him everyday in it for a minute or two then gradually working up to 10mins a day.


Maybe it's just copying - but it's also odd that both reviews are top-listed at Amazon.

it's funny, both my kids loved the exersaucer the first time. Our model wasn't as heavily festooned as many I have seen, perhaps that's the difference. Or maybe these parents just have really timid kids.

Rilkekind found himself in his cousin's saucer the other day and started furiously playing. After a little while he seemed to get overwhelmed though amd got upset, or perhaps he wasn't quite tall enough to manipulate everything or chew on something promising.

The festooning definitely offends my aesthetic sense, but are we going to deprive our child of any of the precious plastic stimulation offered to us by the benevolent toy industry?
