Bright Starts 14 Days of Laughter: Automatic Bouncer Review & HUGE giveaway!

I told you about the Bright Starts 14 Days of Laughter event that was going on this week. Yesterday it took place at 3 Kids and Us. Well, today is my day! As many of you know my little Aiden is quite the fussy dude. He likes to be moving and shaking all the time. After bouncing his old bouncy seat until my leg was numb I knew I needed to find a better solution. He hated his old bouncy seat for two main reasons, a) the vibrating option did nothing for him and b) the toy bar in front of him was way to busy and it overstimulated him.

Bright Starts to the rescue! Finally someone created a bouncy seat that bounces itself. Yes, that’s right I said it bounces itself! We got to review the Automatic Bouncer and no more numb leg for me! Powered by Hybridrive Technology it gives a smooth, consistent bounce similar to mom’s movements. It has two speeds, low and moderate. My only suggestion for improvement would be that my little guy needs a high speed option. He really likes to be moving! It has more than 2 times the battery life of other bouncy seats so you aren’t going through batteries like crazy either. We haven’t had to change them yet!

Aiden is smiling away in his seat! I love that the toy bar easily pivots back to get him in and out easy. Another reason I love this feature is because he is easily overstimulated and doesn’t always want the toys in front of him. It is really easy to just push it back and make him happy. He also loves the music and nature sounds that the bouncer plays. They are soothing and not at all annoying.

The toys are simple and that is perfect for my little guy. He loves not having too much going on in front of him. It comes with a removable head rest and bolster for added comfort. The head rest, bolster and seat pad are all machine washable too which is a must for my little guy.

Check out the adorable toys attached to the toy bar. The Automatic Bouncer is perfect for at home or at Grandma’s house. It is great for sleep or play time. It would make an excellent baby shower gift too!

The Automatic Bouncer is very easy to use and operate as well. The buttons are big and easy to push with the power button being little which is perfect at deterring little fingers (like Danika’s) from turning it off unexpectedly.

You can buy the InGenuity Automatic Bouncer at Target for $49.99. You can find additional retailers HERE. It isn’t more expensive than many other bouncy seats and is well worth the price.
Here is a video clip of my son in his Automatic Bouncer. I think the video speaks for itself. He is a fairly fussy baby and you wouldn’t know it by the video! He loves his Automatic Bouncer. It also shows how the Bouncer bounces so you can get an idea of how it works. I had to show my hubby this video because he was at work when I filmed Aiden and he couldn’t believe how happy he was.

Now wasn’t that cute? 🙂

I would love the playard.

  17. The funniest dad and daughter interaction…

    ~ he usually puts her underwear on wrong. Most times the leg hole is around her waste and the waist hole around her leg. then she comes to me and says "daddy gave me a wedgie"

    it happens pretty often and it is always very funny. everytime i teach him to put it on correctly – he still does not get it…

  24. Happy to be a part of the 14 Days promotion!! Great review.

  25. We're expecting our first, so no great dad-child interactions YET, but I will share how I knew he was the man I wanted to marry.

    We were visiting family, and an emergency came up. Jason offered to watch my goddaughter, who was 2 at the time, so my cousin and I could take care of the issue.

    We came home, and found the two of them playing together. Alizah had taken all of her costume jewelry and was putting it on herself, then taking it off and putting it on Jason. When I grabbed the camera to take pictures, I captured huge smiles on both their faces. Seeing how good Jason was with my niece definitely helped seal the deal.

    Now I hope I can win the Portable Swing for our little one due in August!

    When our son was newly born, my husband was so scared to even touch him..he thought he would break, or hurt him. So I would have to hand him over to him, make sure he was okay, etc. He would jump/flinch if our baby even sneezed, yawned, drooled. Too Funny!

    I would choose that Cradle&Sway Swing!

  52. This story is about my brother and his daughter. He is a rough and tough motorcycle dude with the long hair and such. The sweetest thing is watching his little girl brush her daddy's hair and put pretty pink ponie tail holders and ribbons in it.


    I would pick the Automatic Bouncer you sold me, it sounds great!

  53. I am following you from MBC!
    your Blog is great! – can you please follow me back?


  54. Our son was rather large when he was born and had quite a pointy head by the time he came out. The first thing my husband said wasn't "it's a boy" or anything like that. He said "look at it's head!!" Needless to say after a day or two his head looked normal, but we still crack up about his "loving" first impression! I would probably choose the Cradle & Sway Swing.

  55. The funniest thing I can remember about my hubby and son interacting was when I ran out to go shopping and my husband was tasked with changing the baby. He thought my son might like some powder on his tush and accidentally dumped the entire bottle on him!!! He was so embarassed and tried to clean it all up before I got home, meanwhile my poor son is sneezing uncontrollably from the powder!

    I would love the automatic bouncer for our upcoming baby, due in May, thanks!

  90. When our first daughter was a few weeks old, we had some pics taken. DH had picked up our daughter, minus her diaper to sooth her. She peed on him then fell asleep. To this day he won't hold any of our other daughters without a diaper! But that snapshot is my favorite pic ever!

    I'd love the playyard.

  91. When Kaiya had the hiccups for the first time I heard my husband go BOO. I asked him what the heck he was doing and he said he was trying to scare her so her hiccups would go away. Yes, my husband was trying to sacre the hiccups out of our newborn daughter. I have the play yard and would love to add the swing or bouncer!

  92. I follow your blog.

  93. Even after 4 kids, my husband is so scared of "breaking" a newborn baby! You should see him treat babies like they are eggs….haha!

  113. Oh Dad afraid of poop. It washes. My husband made everything a game, including diaper changing. Sometime the clean diaper was a screen for a puppet show, sometimes a cape in a bull fight, sometimes a magic show. All were integrated in the diaper changing. A particually bad change and it was time for a swim. He was a great Dad. Now he is a grandpa with lots more tricks.

  121. My husband has been the #1 diaper changer since the second our son was born, I was down with c-sec and tons of drugs and then a spinal leak…no getting out of bed for me. For someone who had not been around kids at all (except for my nephew and niece) he knew what he was doing. He also fell asleep holding the baby (baby sleeping as well) and baby started rooting around and trying to nurse on him…he finally woke and came running holding our son about 20 feet away from him saying I think you should feed him. LOL it was hilarous! He can't wait for their outdoor excursions.

  125. Well, I think it's funny that no matter how many times I try to encourage Daddy to use real words and model more advanced sounds to our 9 month old, every time he picks her up, he will start growling to her like a lion… and of course, that's now her best sound! They just growl back and forth at each other!

  132. I love when my husband would nap while holding our infant, they would both recline the same way and cock their heads in positions that didn't look comfortable at all. Maybe not that funny, but it always made me smile. I also think it's funny how my husband refuses to change cloth diapers, as if the concept is really bizarre.
    I'd choose the playard.

  134. The funniest story I have is when my husband and daughter were brushing their teeth one night in the bathroom together and my daughter turned to him and said, "Dad you have a penis right?". He about died! He didn't realize that she had just asked me about private parts that morning. Poor guy! 🙂

    I would probably want the bouncer.

    every time my husband needs to change a puppy diaper he breaths heavily and that makes me laugh. I'd love playard.

  142. Sorry about deleting my other comment I forgot to put which prize I would want if I am lucky. I would want the cradle and sway swing.
    My husband really never did do anything funny with any of our children when they were little but he did when they got around 2. He took my son fishing and my son saw a fish and started crying because daddy didn't jump in to get the fish since it wasn't biting the worms. Daddy had to explain that, that is not the way to go fishing and after daddy held him for awhile he was ready to start fishing again

  143. anonymous says:

    The funniest time with all my kids was when they would learn to "kiss." Daddy always thinks it's pretty gross when they start slobbering all over his face!
    If I won I would probably choose the playard…or maybe the portable swing?

  159. First off your blog is awesome. 🙂 Im trying to get mine to be as awesome as yours. But don't know if I will make it there.

    Hmmm a funny story. Well actually this happened the other night. Dad was moving a mattress into her room and he must have said this a while back it is @$$%ing heavy, because DD said, "Daddy is it @!#$ing heavy?" She was so serious and we laughed so hard. It was hilarious.

    I would want the automatic bouncey seat actually! But I never win anything.

  160. When my daughter's first childe, a boy was born, her hubby decided he was going to have an active role in parenting. The second day at the hospital the baby had a messy diaper and daddy decided he was going to change it. He took one look at the tar-like mess and said I need some wipes!! & and when asked how many, he replied "The whole box!!!!" We all cracked up! The look on his face was priceless.

    I would like the cradle & sway swing if I win – for another new grand baby!

  191. We don't have any funny baby stories….yet!! 🙂 However, when we were babysitting our niece, she had an upset stomach from a new formula she was taking. While my husband was holding her up in the air playing airplane, she had a very messy accident…and it ran out of the side of her diaper/onesie into his lap. He was freaking out and everyone else was laughing hysterically!
    I would choose the Craddle and Sway Swing! Thanks so much!

  193. when my daughter was still a little little baby, about a month old, my brother in law kept her while my sister and i ran up the street to pick up the pop n pizza,we werent even gone 10 minutes but when i came back it was like a sitcom!! he had heated her bottle, but didnt twist the lid and when went to feed her he instead poured milk all over her, which only made her scream louder, and we all know how loud a baby can get when they are hungry, so there he sat trying to clean her, hold her, and shush her, all while just about crying hisself!!

    I'd love the bouncer. We currently don't have one.

  208. Hmmm…the most recent would have to be when Daddy fell asleep on the couch a few weeks ago and Gavin colored his face with markers HILARIOUS! Hubby was so mad he had green lines all down one side of his face. I about peed in my pants when it didn't come out on the first shower!

  215. My 2.5 yr old was calling for his Papa one day and was getting no response so, he started calling even louder. Then, all of a sudden, he yells out, "Cory DeBord!! Come here, please!" lol!! The little stinker had heard me call him Cory so many times, I guess, and knew it got his attention. Of course, he got attacked my the tickle monster Papa for that one. 🙂
    It's a hard choice, but I think the portable swing would be great since we are always visiting grandparents and could take it along! I love that smiley pic of your little boy. adorable!!

  230. We were preparing to leave the hospital after the birth of my youngest child. My husband was busy stuffing everything under the stroller and I was dressing the baby. My husband turned around to ask me something just as I lifted my son's legs to stick a diaper underneath and my son had an exploding poop that shot all over my husbands clothing. My poor hubby had to leave the hospital in an undershirt and poop covered pants. Funny how it took until our 5th kid for him to get pooped on.
    I would love the portable swing.

He was helping me with a diaper, and my son started peeing, and my Dad was holding his legs, and my son peed on his shirt and so he didn't want his shirt peed on so he moved the direction of my sons legs and so instead my sons pee shifted directions.. directly into my mouth. LOL. It was gross, but hysterical. I would choose the playard. 🙂

  235. Casey is potty training and does not like to wear a pull-up at night. My husband was chasing him around the house and stuck the pull-up on his head to be funny like a hat, Casey busted up and thought it was so funny he went and got a pull-up and put it on his head then Caleb my oldest went and did the same thing. They were all so giggly. So the next morning i went to get Casey out of his room and he put the pull up back on his head and the pull-up hat giggles started all over again.

  239. My husband & I are expecting our first child together, although I have a child I brought into the marriage. He's been an amazing father to my son – but he's only been around him since he was over the age of 1 – so I can't wait to see how he parents a newborn as currently he won't even hold one because he's afraid of dropping them! =)
    I'd pick the swing or pack & play.

  245. The funniest interaction to me was the time my husband was changing a diaper and forgot to hold something over our son as he was changing diapers. Needless to say he got a faceful of urine.

  246. I would love love love the portable swing! 🙂 Funniest dad and kiddie moment-there are so many!! My hubby is a great dad! I love watching them interact. They are so adorable when they wrestle. Our lil man is only 2 and so tiny compared to hubby, but they really have a ball rolling around on the bed jumping on one another. 🙂 Jenprincess88 at aol dot com

    My dad/child story happened when my husband kept jostling the baby on his knee pretending he was a bouncy horse. I TOLD him not to, she had just had her bottle. Well….she projectile vomited so much all over him that it even went BEHIND his glasses. He held her out at arm's length saying "Help me!" But I couldn't. I was on the floor laughing with my other kids, it was so darn funny.

    Elizabeth smiled sweetly, batted her eyelashes at him and said, "I can handle Mama."

    I'd pick the cradle & sway swing for an expecting mama that could desperately use it! 🙂

  275. I would choose the bouncer. One favorite interaction was the first time our son 'kissed' his daddy. You know, when the baby tries to cram your entire chin into their mouth, and suck on it really hard. Only, my DH was scruffy and not expecting it, and my son was used to my smooth chin. They both pulled away at the same time. The suction broke with a loud noise. They just looked at each other with those popped out eyes you see on the cartoons. I laughed. A lot.

  278. I have a story that is hard to beat. When my first and only child was about 1 week old my husband was changing her diaper while I laid in bed because I was so tired. My husband took off the diaper and my daughter pooped so quick and hard that it hit everything from her butt to the wall 6 feet away including our tv!!!!!! my husband hasn't changed a diaper since.

  279. Well we're currently expecting #1, so the only funny stories I have are of getting hubby ready for the baby. Sometimes when I'm not around, I hear him "practicing" talking to the baby. "Now son, don't put that in your mouth!" "Quit throwing your socks little lady." it's really cute and really funny.

    I think if I won I would choose the play yard.

  280. My husband was changing our son's diaper, and while he was changing him, my son pooped some more…my husband described it as looking like soft serve ice cream coming out of the machine :)~

    I'd love to win the swing, thanks for the chance!

    penelopesoasis at yahoo dot com

  281. The biggest laugh I have thanks to my husband is when he mixes up our identical twin boys. You'd think after almost 2 years he wouldn't mess them up at all, alas he still at least once a week. I will find them put to bed in the wrong crib, put in the wrong high chair etc. I ask him when this happened one time why he just didn't look at Baby A's birth mark on his shin. And my husband said he did, but it was that Baby B had a bruise in the same spot on his leg.

    When our first child was born my husband and I operated a family business and we brought our daughter with us. I was responsible for answering phones, scheduling service calls, etc. I left her with him for a few minutes one day so I could make a bank deposit and she had an explosion. When I came back she had poop everywhere and he was frantically trying to clean her up while handling a business call. It may not seem too funny, but the look on his face was priceless!

My son picked up his play phone and started mimicking everything my husband did, every hand gesture, facial expression. It was the cutest thing. When my husband noticed, he had to start laughing.

This morning he had put LO in a flip diaper and I still can't figure out what he was thinking with the snaps. He loves our boys and plays with them, but when it comes to the basics of dressing, etc. he is funny how he goes about it!!

    I so need a playard with my soon to be 6 month old. We are almost out of the swing:(. Time flies!!

  434. Hubby's always been strict with our son, but our daughter has him wrapped around her finger! (He would NEVER admit that.) The other day, he told her to put her toys away. She refused. He said, "You better pick those up or I'm gonna spank your butt." Her reply. "No you're not." And she walked off swinging her hips. Hahahahaha! DRAMA QUEEN! Did he spank her? NO!

  438. My favorite was the first time my husband changed our baby's diaper (okay, it was like, the 3rd time, but he was still new at it).

    Our son started peeing, and it went right in hubby's mouth. I'm sure this happens to every new parent at some point, but hubby's reaction was priceless. He gagged, he puked, and I almost peed myself laughing at the whole spectacle. Our kid's got good aim — I'm thinking he's destined to be an Olympic curler or archer or something!

    Also, I'd like to win the Cradle Sway and Swing 🙂

    Funny dad/baby moment: When my daughter was still very young, just a month or two, she really connected to her daddy (and she still is a total daddy's girl at 2). He cuddled with her and stuck his tongue out at her, and she surprised us by responding and sticking her tongue out at him! She was just SO tiny, it was really funny and totally adorable. 🙂

  445. no funny stories yet… baby is still too young, but an amazing one. While he was in the womb (and we thought it was a she!), he began to know who his daddy was. Initially whenever Daddy put his hand on my tummy, and then later even whenever Dad was next to me, he'd migrate to that side – this wasn't just a one time deal – it happened the whole pregnancy once he started being able to move like that!! And it was only his daddy he'd do it for – anyone else and he'd stay still… or move away!! wow. And he still loves his daddy. 🙂

  456. My husband cracks me up with our son, I thought I would be the overprotective one…but no way! For example when my son was learning to climb up and down the steps I would let him practice with me right there and he did it once when my husband was around and he freaked out and went and bought more baby gates…so then there was one at the top and the bottom…a little too paranoid!

  457. The funniest interaction that I can think of right now is when little man woke real early and my husband went to get him. He refused to go to sleep in our bed he was convienced it was time to wake. So they went to the living room. about an hour later I woke and went to see why it was so quiet. THey were asleep on the couch. or Little man was on the couch all spread out and my husband was on the edge I swear he should have been on the floor. He had no room whatsoever!! Little man takes up tons of space for such a little guy.

  478. My absolute favorite dad/baby interaction is when my husband gets home from work. I recently became a SAHM and Baby S has decided he LOVES to look out our front bay window. When he's fussy before dinner it's the only thing that cheers him up. So we watch for daddy. And when daddy's car pulls in the drive way, S starts stomping and gets all excited. And when daddy comes in the door and scoops up S, the squeals are too much. I love it1

  498. I would choose the Portable Swing. One of my sons and husband have been racing RC cars and my son has always gotten last place at the indoor track. Last weekend my son got bragging rights when he beat his dad. They were ribbing each other for days.

  517. This is really grandfather and grandson, but recently my son-in-law was on the floor with his grandson, who apparently had certain ideas about how they should be playing. The baby pushed him so that he would lay down and then climbed on top to play motorcycle (I would say horsey, but horses don't go 'vroom, vroom'!). He had the smuggest grin on his face!
    I would like the play-yard.

  523. Hubby's 1st time bathing the twins was a hoot. We all know how slippery lil' ones can be. After one time of bathing them we decided it wasn't the job for him. He was so nervous. I couldn't help but laugh. He hasn't bathed them since. He says he much rather prefers diapering & will leave the bathing to me.

    I'd choose the Cradle & Sway Swing.

  537. I came home from work one day and my husband had put together the toddler bed for our daughter. He took the box from the toddler bed and cut it so it looked like a huge fort for our daughter and had it set up in our basement. When I walked in he was crawling around in the fort, peeking out the windows with my daughter and they starting throwing her rubber blocks out the window at me, yelling and having a great time. It was hilarious to see them both playing together like that.

  559. Our son is either happy and all smiles, or he's screaming like he's dying, so we've learned not to over react to the screams. So one day, my hubby picked my son up from his nap – and he was screaming. So my husband decided to cry along with him. The expression on my son's face was hilarious! He immediately got quiet and just looked at his daddy like, "What's wrong with you?!"

  560. I would pick the playard. I remember when my daughter was born, my husband was changing her. She peed right in his face. He couldnt believe it! He thought girls didnt do that, but apparently our did! Thanks for the chance!

  561. my husband tickles our toddler who laughs uncomrtollably, even if you don't touch him. i'd like the playyard

  565. My son came home from work one day after many many long hours, his wife told him that Carley (my granddaughter) was teething and was crying all day and that she needed a break. My son laid down on the sofa with Carley on his chest, within minutes, both were sound asleep…we took pictures, it was adorable.

  588. I always laugh whenever I hear conversations between my husband, David, and my 4 year old son, Alex. Like one night during dinner, this is how their conversation went:
    Dad – "I like the name Al. Can I call you Al, short for Alex?"
    Son – "Ok. Can I call you Dave?"

    I would choose the portable swing for my baby girl.

    Well we haven't had our little one yet (just a couple of months to go!) so I don't have many stories. I'll just tell a cute one. When my husband talks to our baby he puts his face on my tummy and gets as close to it as he can. Most of the time when he talks to it(we don't know what the baby is) it starts moving around all over the place and sometimes bops him in the nose! I love to see him bonding with our sweet little baby before it has even arrived!

    I forgot to tell which product I would choose in my first comment. I would probably choose the automatic bouncer.

  610. I would choose the automatic bouncer. Okay, Dad child interaction. When my youngest was a newborn I had to go and run an errand downtown and left her with Daddy who was going to feed her some rice cereal. I left and was gone for about an hour. When I came back my husband had just finished feeding her and recorded the whole thing, an hour of her eating cereal. It was so cute to watch him sit there and spoon it into her mouth for an hour – although this was pretty boring footage except to new parents. THinking of him doing that makes me smile.

  660. I would choose the automatic bouncer.

    My funniest story is when my son was still baking. He was moving around and daddy wanted to feel it so he laid the side of his face on my belly and then our son kicked him right in the eye.

  661. My funniest dad and daughter moment occurs each day at noon. My husband will call during his lunch break to check on us and I put the phone on speaker. Our daughter is only four months and will "talk" to him while looking around to see where he is hiding. It always makes me laugh and is so sweet.

    I would choose the Cradle & Sway swing if I won. We currently have a hand me down swing that is sadly falling apart. We desperately need a new swing!

  666. My funny story is really only funny because the same thing keeps happening over and over. Any time our daughter has had a leaky diaper while being held – it has always been in my husband's lap. It's happened 3 times in the last month alone! I keep telling him that she's just making up for having squirt-pooped on me when she was a week old and to be happy it's only been pee so far!

    If I win, I'd probably ask for either the play yard or travel swing…

  669. My favorite funny story of my daughter and husband happened when she was probably 2 days old. My husband was changing her diaper and she peed on him. He immediately laughed with joy and said "Oh sweetheart, you're so wonderful!" lol, his exuberance over being peed on has certainly faded over the months.

    Picking one of those great Bright Starts products is difficult, but I think we would have to go with the automatic bouncer.

    Hope I win!

  671. My daughter has had so many funny moments with her dad! One of the funniest was when my husband was trying to help our daughter get more tummy time. He laid down on his back and put the baby on his chest. I tried to warn him that she had just eaten and that position might not be a good idea, but before I could say anything our daughter had spit up on his glasses and in his beard! Yuck!

    I'd choose the automatic bouncer if I won (I think – it's hard to pick!).
