My little boy is on the move! He loves to bounce and tries to walk–he always has a place to be. We wanted to let our son try a walker because it seemed like something he would really enjoy, so we chose to try out the Combi All-in-One Mobile Entertainer which is not only an awesome baby activity walker but also a jumper! Put this on your list of baby gear must haves!
What I Love
This Combi baby product is a walker, jumper, entertainer, and high chair all in one. This means you can buy one product, save some money, save some space, and get a lot of use out of it! Having more than one large baby item in your house can take up a lot of room and look messy, especially if you live in a small house or apartment. I like to have walkers and bouncers available for my son to enjoy as it is a learning experience for him so I love that this one product can do it all!
On the bottom there is a button that you can lock into place for when your child wants to stand and walk around. The swivel wheels allow baby to move forwards, backwards and side to side around hard, smooth surfaces. This product can be used on carpeting as well, but it will not move as easily as on other surfaces like in the kitchen, garage, or patio. The seat adjusts to three height levels to grow with your child. My son is able to comfortably touch the ground on the lowest level whereas he was a little too short for our old walker. Set him in his Combi Mobile Entertainer and he zooms around the linoleum! I love watching those little feet go; he really enjoys walking.Custom Canvas Key Holder)
You know that nifty button I mentioned earlier? Well you can turn it and it will unlock the sides to allow the car tray to bounce up and down. To say my baby boy likes jumping would be an understatement…he is crazy about it! He’s a little Tigger! Anytime you try to hold him in a standing position, he starts to hop. While this builds up Mommy’s muscles, I need breaks and the Combi All-in-One is the perfect solution. Little man actually will crawl over to the jumper and kick his legs to let me know he’s in the bouncy mood. The adjustable height comes in handy here as well because he is able to reach the floor with both feet flat and his knees bent enough to jump properly.
The Combi All-in-One activity walker feeds both the imagination and the belly. With its classic car theme, your little one will have so much fun pretending to drive around! My older son loves to push his brother in it and pretend they are cruising. This product comes in several colors and designs including red, pink, purple and black colors with white racing stripes, a black or blue police car, Flower Power which is pink with a peace sign and flowers, and silver with flames. Click here to see all the color options. We chose the silver because it looks like a hot rod. When we have visitors, my son’s Combi Silver Flame is a huge hit with the kids–even the big kids wish they could get inside and go for a ride. The design is sleek and clean and looks good in our house without standing out too much.
The removable electronic play tray on top has a cute steering wheel and two rear view mirrors. The wheel turns and moves little toys in the dash and it also has a little horn and colorful buttons that light up and play music! My older son loves to press the songs for his baby brother over and over; they are quiet enough that it does not usually bother me like some other toys we own. Because the steering wheel is clear, the lights are not vibrant enough during the daytime to catch my baby’s attention, but they make his face light up when it is a little darker. On either side of the steering wheel there is a rear view mirror where your little one can look at his adorable face. The piece around the mirrors spins and has knobs that are fun to grab hold of and even more fun for teething babies to chew and goo on.
The entertainment system detaches easily to reveal a silver tray for baby to eat snacks on a clean, toy-free surface. This means easy clean up! The tray does not have a cup holder which I actually like; my son does not drink from cups right now so the flat surface is a lot easier for me to clean. We took the walker out on the patio and we all had dinner outside! Remember, the walker rolls so make sure you block any openings to stairs if you bring it outside. I would also recommend locking the base when using the snack and drink tray so your baby is less likely to bounce while trying to eat.
As an added safety measure, this baby walker and entertainer has anti-skid brake pads. The seat is hung securely and made with a soft material. It has a 100% polyurethane foam filling so the seat is cushioned to provide added comfort and security. The seat can hold up to 30 lbs. and itself measures 28″ L x 26″ W x 21.5″ H and weighs 14 pounds. This product is recommended for babies who can sit upright, unassisted.
What I’m Not Huge On
I do wish the Combi All-in-One Mobile Entertainer folded up compactly for storage. If I do not feel like breaking the walker down into pieces each time I would like to hide it away, I just have to leave it out in the open. Fortunately the car walker is pretty cute so I do not mind it sitting out, but we do not have a whole lot of living space so sometimes I feel the house looks cluttered with the larger baby toys in view. We decided to have some fun with it, however, and made a little parking sign to give it its own place in the room.
While I love the simplicity of the toy dashboard for entertainment, I think I would have liked to see a few more activities included…perhaps a key that spins and spins or a shifter with a textured shift knob for teething babies.
Overall, the Mobile Entertainer is a cute and smart baby product. With it’s numerous uses, it will save you money and a little floor space in your house and it converts quickly and easily. This product is a huge hit with children and their parents when they visit our house and my kids love it as well! The quality is great and it is made by one of my favorite brands! As an added bonus, the box has an outline drawing of the walker/jumper which makes for a fun coloring page. I would definitely recommend this product to parents looking for a walker and bouncer as this product is both in one.
