Think it was a US recall and them issuing straps to keep leg straighteners in them - but a large part of the issue was idiots putting babies on tables in them etc etc... similar to the baby walkers at the top of stairs stupidity leading THEM to get banned in Canada.
I never had one - they looked like a hell of a price to pay for something resembling a polystyrene potty. Jumperoos - don't have the space in the house for one is the main reason we don't have one of those.
We never had a bumbo either. I don't like them.
We had a tiny love playmat/gym thing - half the price of the fisher price one, but DD loved it.
I know this is for the first 6 months but once you get to 6 months and start weaning, I recommend the Antilop highchair from Ikea. Very cheap and very easy to clean. I bought a huge Fisher Price highchair with my first. Horrible to keep it clean, wish I'd never bothered and had the Ikea one from the start.
:rotfl: this is a joke, right?! We've just sold ours on eBay, was an absolute godsend - somewhere safe and fun you can put bubs while you nip to the loo? Um, yes please! We had him in it from just over 4 months, once he could hold his head up it was fine. From my experience the age guidelines on a lot of toys/baby equipment is massively conservative and designed to protect the manufacturers from idiots sueing them after putting a newborn in it or something equally unsuitable. You just have to use a teeny bit of common sense.
For a newborn I think the bouncy chair was a lifesaver, somewhere comfy for him to sit while you glug a cuppa/rest your arms for 2 minutes!

Tbh it was more the circle of neglect bit that I was referring to as a joke I haven't heard anything re hip dysplasia and jumperoos but if that's right I stand corrected. However my small person isn't showing any signs of damage from bouncing his little heart out on a regular basis

It's a well known description of those sorts of things.
