Babies take a lot of work. Because, well, they're babies after all. But somewhere along the line, someone, somewhere created an invention that not only occupied babies, but helped them get exercise too. Maybe it even worn them out. Ladies and gentlemen, we're talking about the child jumper. Some would even call them mom's best friend, even though they're technically for children. 

We say child because though it may be most convenient to stick baby in there, some toddlers can still fit. Having them in a jumper prevents them from playing with things they shouldn't by giving them their own play zone to explore. And at the same time, they can stretch of strengthen their legs. Some are actually bouncy, thereas others are more like standing play zones. 

Yet all serve the same purpose. It's kind of like making them feel independent without actually giving them total independence. Because honestly, that's not quite safe with a little one. It's important to be nearby and check in often on babies in jumpers, but once that's taken care of, it's all fun, games, and bouncy for them. Mom might even get something done in the meantime. 

Finding the right jumper is a matter of personal style, what baby likes, and truly, what will keep the tot entertained the longest. It's better to have them in there burning energy than to chase them around. Whose the one getting the exercise then? Not that exercise is a bad thing for mom, but perhaps it's not quite the way she wants to get it done. 

We rounded up some of the most fun, engaging, and bounce-inducing jumpers out there (with a few summer and travel versions thrown in as options). Happy jumping!
