When it comes to baby products, I’m always on the hunt for something versatile, functional, and fun. Many baby products seem to excel in either versatility, form, or function, but not the Peg Perego Sdraietta Melodia Italian import bouncer; it has it all! This bouncer looks absolutely amazing, and then you try it out… and it is absolutely amazing! The Sdraietta Melodia is a one of a kind bouncer. Not only does it play music with surround sound speakers and have MP3 compatibility, it easily converts to a rocker from its stationary position and is adjustable for comfort with 2-position recline; it has a carrying handle and buckle closure; it folds for storage with a detachable toy bar and removable, padded seat; and it’s conducive to every situation, whether you are at home, going to a friend’s house, or even hitting the beach and taking advantage of the sun canopy. It may cost a bit more than the average baby seat, but that’s because it has so much more to offer.
Sdraietta Melodia is the most versatile bouncer on the market. The carrying handle and seat back each have three positions, and the leg rest has two positions. The seat goes from almost a straight line to a near right angle with lots of settings in between. The infant booster pad can also be removed once the baby gets bigger. The bouncer can be a great place to put the baby down to do work around the house, cook dinner, watch tv, and even take a shower. (Yes, moms need showers too.)
Another great thing about this infant seat is it is both a bouncer and a rocker. The frame allows the chair to gently rock or you can activate the non-rocking stabilizer that allows the seat to stay stationary but allows it to lightly bounce. Playing or needing to go down for a nap, the stationary base easily switches to a rocking mode and the adjustable backrest bestows contentment.
The seat is portable and perfect for everywhere use. It folds nearly flat for storage or transport. An adjustable, removable sun shade makes outdoor use a breeze and the breathable fabric seems comfortable, not hot or sticky.
Musical entertainment can be set to baby’s preferences. The seat has built in speakers located at the top of the chair for the baby to enjoy eight different programmed sounds, including four playful tunes such as This Old Man and four soothing tunes such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Keeping up with technology, the bouncer was created to play personalized music from your own MP3 player. Just plug your MP3 into the speakers and your baby can listen to your favorite music. Plus, by using a MP3 player, you will have total volume control. I love that you don’t have to hear the same music over and over; we all know how redundant that can be when it comes to baby gear!
The Sdraietta Melodia also sports a toy bar that offers some visual stimulation. The toy bar, featuring five interactive noise-making toys, is adjustable and removable. There are three hanging toys: a crinkly butterfly, a cow that moos, and a flower that shakes. There are also two toy spinners on the sides of the bar. The toys can be easily detached for washing or providing a less stimulating environment.
The Sdraietta Melodia retails for $169, but for a bouncer and rocker with surround sound, a solid construction, a great canopy, and a fabulously trendy look, if you have the extra cash, it’s definitely worth it. With all these options, you really can’t go wrong!
