Babies love moving around a lot so a Jumperoo, otherwise known as a bouncer, is an efficient tool to keep a baby from wandering off and it also enhances a child’s motor ability.

Crawling helps to improve the curves of the back bone and strengthen it but jumperoos reduce the time a baby spends crawling around and hence its effectiveness.
