I spend a lot of time in kitchen (don't all mums) cooking, baking, washing, faffing...My 18month-old loves to get up to my level to be part of the action and after a scary incident on a chair I bought this & haven't regretted it. Several times a day Mollie will pat her FunPod so I put her in it & she is so happy watching me and 'helping' or eating a snack or 'colouring' whilst able to keep an eye on Mummy.
Others have said it is heavy to move around, and maybe the makers have listened as I have a newer model than pictured and it has round feet that make it very easy to drag around our laminate floor. Also easy to clean & good solid feel.
Well worth the initial outlay - think how many expensive baby gadgets do you have that you never use? This won't be one of them.
