“The Jumparoo otherwise fondly known as ‘The Circle of Neglect’ in our house is for sale as it has turned from a contraption that presented hours of fun filled jumping to a maximum if we’re lucky of three jumps before ‘let me out I want to shove one of my big brothers marbles up my nose/ in my mouth/ down my nappy/basically somewhere it shouldn’t be’ wailing ensues.”
Parents – sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
"...This pile of multicoloured plastic, metal and fabric can give your bundle of joy hours of restricted fun (when I say restricted i don't mean your child's imagination, on that front the sky's the limit. No I mean you having a wee on your own knowing your little one will be where you left them when you return, you may even be able to go crazy and have time to dry your hands and do up your flies before you leave the bathroom!)"
"It is with a heavy heart I let this parenting tool go from our household as it does prevent phrases like "mummy xxx has her finger stuck in Buzz Lightyear's helmet" (no mother wishes to hear her little girl has her finger stuck in a helmet!) however as I mention above our baby girl now views this piece of equipment on a level with a Tudor torture tool, so it will become another thing I don't have time to clean!
