I have used this with both of my boys, however mine plays music instead of the sliding monkey thing. It's a very basic entertainer, and little ones seem to tire of the toys quickly as they age. I don't like the bungee platform, I definitely wish I had purchased an actual bouncer or something that allows the child to move instead of them just pushing down against a surface. All in all, well worth the price, however. If looking for entertainment for baby on a budget, it's great. I would not, however, say this design is space-saving, it still takes up a lot of room in the home.
