    the top one will be brilliant for you! Hannah has one (tho its different 'leap frog activity centre) keeps her amused for a good while so you can grab 5 minutes. Its been a life saver at times! i bought mine of ebay for £25. It was worth every penny.

    www.freecycle.org

    you give away things for free that you don't want any more but are too good to take to the tip, or too inconvenient to take to charity shop. so you can pick up things other people no longer have a use for but are in great condition.

    We were gonna get Ryan a jumperoo for christmas but I completely forgot about it til I saw this one on freecycle so I emailed the lady and because someone didn't turn up to collect it off her she said we can have them! :D So even though it's not a jumperoo, it's free and looks fab :D I was always a bit debatable on them, whether they are a good idea or not, but since it's free I'm happy to have it :) if we don't get on with it I can always freecycle it again to someone else :)

    Have you been on before? Only you have to apply and gett approved by a mod for your local group.

    I love Freecycle, it's been fab to get rid of stuff and when I asked for Enid Blyton books someone gave me about 50 vintage 1960's harbacks :shock: :cheer:

    will you put Ryan in it yet?

    Just like I said I was got Jack something very similar but when I put him in his feet don't touch bottom just yet, about an inch too short and he wobbles a bit. Do you think I should wait till his feet touch ground so he's more supported?

    No idea lol i'm not one for sticking to the rules usually anyway so I'll probably sit him in it and if he's all wobbly I'll leave it a bit til he can sit properly by himself. He likes his bumbo tho so he may well be alright in it.

    But regards your Jack, I have no idea..

    I LOVE freecycle :dance:

    We got a 3 in 1 printer/copier/scanner from there, a really good one too, all I had to get was a usb cable and hey presto!

    We've given away 4 fiat coupe wheels with alloys, a dvd surround sound system, and the most memorable was a family who had just moved to the area and had nothing for their house so we took them round a load of cushions, rugs, vases, cutlery and plates etc, and other bits and pieces we don't use anymore and they were sooo grateful. Really warms the heart :)
