Is it true they stopped making doorway jumpers?

My cousin gave me the one her kids used, but now I'm hesitant to use it because I heard they were taken off the market because they are unsafe.

  • My MIL just bought a "Jenny-jump-up" for my daughter a few months ago...I never heard anything bad about them. But since she just bought it recently I am gonna go ahead and say that no, they did not stop making them...

  • You can buy the at the Exchange. HOWEVER, my daughter was jumping in one and it slipped off the door frame. We were so scared. She busted her head open above her eye. She only cried for a little bit but I was terrified. I threw it out. I wouldn't even give it away.

  • I think people aren't really using them anymore- they have the Jumperoo and things like it that seem safer. Dd had a Jumperoo and loved it. No accidents with that one.

  • nope they didn't stop making them, unfortunately. IMO I think they should. They're so dangerous. I would rather put my child in a floor-standing jumperoo or something rather than being suspended from the middle of a door frame. What if the frame itself happens to break? Or the spring fails on the jumper? I shudder to think about it.
