With my other 2 children a bounce was one of the highest items on my must have list when they were infants. They spent hours in the bouncer happily cooing away. Of course when you have an older child who tends to want to try things out beloved items such as bouncers get broken. I have searched high and low for the perfect bouncer for my upcoming third child and am thrilled to report I have found it with Mamas & Papas.
Mamas & Papas is a brand built on a passion for style, quality and innovation. The business was founded in 1981 by one of the UK’s first female entrepreneurs, Luisa Scacchetti, who has redefined the modern approach to parenting, whilst also inspiring a new generation of mothers to realize their own ideas and bring them to market.
Luisa’s original vision is one that still underpins our business today – “Every product and collection in our range must not only look good, but also add simplicity and assurance to a parent’s daily routine. We are about sophisticated, yet simple, solutions, with unprecedented attention to detail in everything we do”.
We are hugely excited about the future of Mamas & Papas – a female design dynasty that remains committed to delivering the highest levels of quality, innovation and passion for parenting. We hope you’ll enjoy exploring our world.
MAGIC Astro Bouncer
The Mamas & Papas MAGIC Astro Bouncer is the ultimate baby entertainment system.
Compatible innovative MAGIC card technology, the MAGIC Astro Bouncer has 4 entertainment settings to provide hours of fun for your baby. Your baby brings the bouncer to life by interacting with the toys, and is rewarded with sound and soft unique light shows to encourage sensory skills. The interactive kick pad responds to your baby’s movement with extra sound and light shows.
The multi positional toy arch means you can create the perfect view for your growing baby, whilst the two speakers provide high quality stereo sound for great baby entertainment throughout the day – you can even connect your MP3 player to play your own music or stories. We’ve also included a safety harness, detachable head support and machine washable soft seat fabrics for extra comfort. The MAGIC Astro baby bouncer has an easy adjust gentle vibration function to soothe, or a gentle bounce option with three speed settings which acts like mom’s heartbeat to provide familiar surroundings for your baby.
Use the Mamas & Papas MAGIC Cards with the Astro bouncer to get the most out of the interactive features. MAGIC cards are sold separately.

My take: I don’t know who was more excited to put this bouncer together my four year old or I. He happily handed me the screws needed for the parts and in no time at all the bouncer was assembled. The only problem I had with assembly was that I didn’t pay attention to the different sizes of screws and had to replace a longer screw with a shorter one.
I like how high off the ground the Astro Bouncer sits because I remember having to crouch way down low to place my other children into the bouncer which sat low to the ground. I also love how interactive this bouncer is with an infant, you can add the kick pad and the baby can activate the sensors. There is a very neat light show which I have never seen available on a bouncer and the MAGIC card has over 45 sounds and lights which leads to hours of entertainment. Don’t like the music you are hearing? You can plug your MP3 player right into the bouncer (there is even a hidden pouch for storage). The sound quality is phenomenal not muted like most I have tried. Unlike my former bouncer there are 3 different speed settings for vibration or bouncing which will help soothe the baby. The colors are fantastic and can be easily used for both genders. I can’t wait until my third and final child arrives in July!!
