Long live the jumperoo

I came across a baby jumperoo today that had been thrown out because the pad was black with dirt/stains and the fabric was so mildew that the understraps actually broke off when you tried to bend them. I think it had been left outside in our Florida weather. But I noticed that the frame was still in good shape and the springs were good, and all it needed was new fabric. So I brought it home, and gave it life for my nine week old baby to enjoy.


Need:

An old jumperoo frame
1/2 yard of fabric
velcro/ or straps
Sewing machine
Bleach water
Screw Driver

Step 1: Clean and take apart

So I took off the old center pad, and the fabric was so rotten the straps just broke off, I posted a pic to show how old, stained, and rotten it was. Then I cut the spring fabric covers off. I took the jumperoo apart, and took it to the kitchen sink and washed it down with bleach water, to kill all the germs.

Next I took a screw driver and took off the main plastic center and disconnected it from the springs, and washed all of that with bleach water as well.

Cool! I have an old carrying packback that needs to be recovered. I've been avoiding doing it because it seems too complex, but this inspires me to try. :)

It is amazing to see the difference, and the best thing is, you get to pick the fabric!
Looks much better with the monkeys!
Thanks! The new fabric makes it look like new and these things are not cheap when you buy them new.
