Apparently, these baby jumperoo contraptions don’t come in a muted, mid-century modern design esthetic. Believe me, I looked. And looked. The baby-toy-making people must have done exhaustive research and concluded that only bright-colored garish, crazy-looking plasticky toys will amuse babies, because it certainly seems true. Miri loves this thing. She reaches, she grabs, she stares, she bats at things. And today she’s just figured out how to bounce around, so double the fun! So I’ve set aside my design sensibilities for the time being, since this crazy thing amuses her so much. After all, she’ll only be a little thing for a short period of time…then I’ll have decades to enjoy my Eames chair.
