Age Range and Usage
you can use the Chicco Pocket Relax Bouncer from birth up to the age of 6 months. This is roughly up to a maximum weight of 9 kg or 20 lbs. Assuming you buy for a newborn baby, getting 6 months usage out of this bouncer is pretty much marked at the average usage in months compared to other bouncers on the market.
Value for Money
In looking at value for money, a great place to start is to consider the price you are paying against how long you will get usage out of the bouncer.
At the time of writing the cost of this bouncer coming in at almost £50 puts it towards the lower end of the mid price range (£££ on the comparison table) which is between £40 and £80’s. As indicated on the age range you should get at least 6 months usage out of the product and so, simply put, a cost of £50.00 for 6 months gives you a usage cost per month of £8.33 which is a middling usage cost per month score.
