VERDICT

The Sassy Seat Doorway Jumper is a great developmental toy that’s especially useful if you don’t have enough space for a stand-alone jumper. It accomplishes the same thing but is much more compact and easier to store. Just be careful when installing and removing the clamp as it can chip off wall paint.

The Sassy Seat Doorway Jumper is a bouncing seat that attaches to any door frame that’s between 3 and 6.5 inches. The jumper features a secure clamp that uses the weight of your baby to produce the clamping force that keeps it secure clamped to your door frame. This means that the heavier your baby is, the more force will the clamp produce. Pretty clever design if you ask us.

The jumper itself is tethered to the clamp with a single strong strap, which connects to a horizontal bar for extra stability. While the jumper can rotate around—which is what you want—it can’t tilt from side to side, so you can rest assured knowing that your baby won’t fall out.

The sturdy seat comes with a machine-washable cushion that provides great comfort and encourages your baby to jump higher and stronger. The more your baby jumps, the faster he or she will develop strong leg muscles. Included with the doorway jumper are five developmental toys, all of which are chewable and easily cleanable.

Before You Purchase

How can I remove the seat?

The seat has an all-around zipper and Velcro strips on the sides. But before you can disconnect it, you have to remove the ropes from the inner metal circle. We recommend you take photos as you disassemble the doorway jumper so that you know how to put everything back together. It’s not a complicated process, but it can be a little tricky the first time you do it.

Can I clamp the jumper to a wooden beam?

The clamp requires some kind of support to keep it from sliding down. Typically, this support is provided a door frame, with the clamp being clamped to the wall above it. You could create a similar support, for example, by screwing a piece of wood to the wooden beam. Just make sure to triple-check that the support can hold the weight of your baby.

How high should the jumper be?

You should set the jumper so that your baby’s feet are just about touching the floor. You don’t want your baby to have his or her feet above the floor for obvious reasons, but you also don’t want your baby to be so close to the ground that jumping would require too much energy.

How should I wash the include toys?

You can toss them in the dishwasher but keep the temperature low.
