Fisher Price EZ Bundle 4-in-1 Baby System Review

 Fisher Price just released a new baby system: the “EZ Bundle 4-in-1”. It’s designed to give you all of the basic infant and toddler sitting equipment with an interchangeable design that saves space and, may I add, also works with your budget by having the entire package cost the same as one of these products could cost separately. My family lives in a 1,100 square foot home which gets pretty tiny when you consider there is one toddler and one baby (equaling way too much space-consuming baby equipment) and two adults (one is an artist and one is a musician, thus pianos, drum sets, and guitars fill the basement and living room while what could be a bedroom houses an art studio). Needless to say, we need to simplify things as much as possible space-wise so that we can walk through our home. 🙂

Basically, you get a box that contains one seat which can snap in and out of the supporting units to create the following apparatuses:

EZ Bundle swing compared to our regular one
EZ Bundle high chair compared to our regular one

Infant Swing
• 6-speeds for variety
• 3-point restraint
• Comfy stain-resistant seat pad
• Approx. 0-6 Months, Maximum weight: 25 lbs.
• Use Swing from birth until child becomes active and attempts to climb out of the product.

High Chair
• 5-point restraint
• Comfy stain-resistant seat pad
• Approx. 6-24 Months, Maximum weight: 50 lbs.
• Use High Chair only with a child who has enough upper body control to sit up unassisted.

Newborn Seat
• Great for feeding or napping!
• 3-point restraint
• Comfy stain-resistant seat pad
• Approx. 0-6 Months, Maximum weight: 25 lbs.
• Use Infant seat from birth until child is able to sit up unassisted.

Toddler seat
• Holds toddlers up to 50 lbs.!
• Comfy stain-resistant seat pad
• Approx. 18 Months & up, Maximum weight: 50 lbs.
• Use Toddler seat only with a child capable of getting into and out of the product unassisted.

The EZ Bundle impressed me on a few different levels. The first is that I thought it may be of rinky-dink quality because of the price, but I’ve found it to actually be very sturdy. In fact, I had to read the directions to put it together (which I normally refuse to do). Another thing that I like about it is that it’s aesthetically pleasing with a modern but not overpowering print for the seat, and nice curves and lines for the seat bases. One of the best things is that I can use it for both my son (8-weeks-old) and my daughter (21-months-old) thanks to their weights, and it’s quick and easy to switch the seat back and forth between the baby appropriate and toddler appropriate bases. The seat really does just snap into any of the units, and is no problem to get back out of that unit when you want to again.

Some things I’d like to see in this system is a musical component on the swing, and a dangling toy option that clips to the bar above the swing so the baby has something to look at (I remedied this by attaching my own toys we have). It’d be great if they could also find a way that allowed you to set the swing to move either forward-backward or side-to-side, but I imagine such a thing would have to shoot the price up. And lastly, of http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=life0fd-20&o=1&p=8&l=bpl&asins=B002OOWABM&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=000000&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifrcourse, I’m always up to finding alternatives to plastic. Again, though, you’d have to sacrifice cost and flexibility which are two integral things to the EZ Bundle 4-in-1 Baby System. One thing to watch out for when you use the system is that the swing seems to lay and swing back pretty far. Be sure to ALWAYS buckle your baby in, because I think it’d be possible to fall out the back of it if another sibling pushed you too far or something.

The EZ Bundle would be something I suggest people get because it’s just as good as many other similar products but costs a lot less. If you don’t have all of the pieces assembled all of the time, it does also save on space and is highly portable if you want to use it on a road trip. Rarely is my husband excited about me receiving something in the mail to review (“takes up space”), but this time he actually said “great! Now we can get rid of all of our baby clutter!” after I explained the system to him. 😉

This review is based on free products I received with no other compensation. I was under no obligation to give a positive review and the opinions are all mine.
