Levo Baby Rocker Instruction Manual
At a glance
The Levo baby rocker is the modern take on an old fashioned rocking chair. Elegant and stylish it looks fabulous and is a rocker for parents who want style as well as substance.
French company Charlie Crane have produced the Levo rocker as a style icon of baby rockers. It has been designed by Parisian artists Erick Demeyer and Steven Leprizé. Built in France from responsibly sourced beech wood and coated with child safe varnish it not only looks fantastic but comes with its green credentials.
The Levo baby rocker is available in 5 different fabric designs and two types of wood, walnut or beech. This gives you a whopping 10 styles to choose from so it should fit with any home or nursery decor style.
It’s a shame Charlie Crane don’t make an adult version! Just looking at the deep bucket shaped rocker seat it looks super comfortable. Well cushioned, with a padded safety harness, this rocker scores highly on the comfort rating.
As you would expect the rocker has a standard three point harness to secure your baby. The wooden seat frame and legs are protected by non-toxic water based polish.
Ease of Cleaning
The cotton seat covers are removable and fully machine washable on a 40 degree temperature cycle.
Ease of Assembly
Age Range and Usage
You can use the Levo baby rocker from birth up to a maximum weight of 9 kg or 20 lbs. Charlie Crane say that is an age of seven months but all other manufacturers for this weight range predict 6 month usage so we will assume a 6 month usage for the Levo too. Assuming you buy for a newborn baby getting 6 months usage out of this rocker is the average usage compared to most other rockers on the market. See Baby Rocker Comparison Table.
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 £155 puts it at the top of the price range (£££££ on the comparison table) which is anything over £120’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 £155 for 6 months gives you a usage cost per month of £25.83 which is a very high usage cost per month score.
For those that can afford it and are happy to pay for quality and style the Levo baby rocker is definitely a rocker that sets itself apart the crowd.
- Its beautiful design
What to watch out for:
- It’s not cheap
- No play functions
The Levo baby rocker is beautiful in its simplicity. It’s a modern take on the traditional baby rocker that hasn’t changed for centuries but it would look the part in any contemporary home. The Levo baby rocker doesn’t have any frills in the way of music, vibration or play functions but for those parents that want elegant and simplistic design the Levo rocker is certainly for you.
