Disappointing: not very good quality for the cost
on 30 April 2013
I'm quite disappointed with this item as, while less expensive than some alternatives, at £40 it's not exactly cheap. It is very papery and rustley and feels fairly cheap quality as a result - certainly not luxury as described. It seems that under the 'luxury' (very thin) fleecy bit the baby lies on there is a papery layer of material so it rustles every time the baby wriggles on it. The harness is also very plastic feeling - like the plastic binds you get on parcels really, not like the harness straps you get on most baby products. Plus - and this is a big downside - you can't take the cover off to wash it, so I expect it will be imbued with baby vomit and smelling of sour milk within the week. The is a random zip on the back but it is sealed when you unzip it - don't understand why the zip is there at all as this negates the very purpose of a zip!
In addition the beanbag is supposedly good for p to 6 months - my 8-week-old daughter already nearly fills the length of it so I don't think it will last more than another month.
Not to mention the fact it took ver a week from dispatch to arrive.
All in all, I wish I'd bought some material and some beanbag stuffing and made my own for half the price.
