Bumbo or....?

I can't believe that we are already using a bumbo chair :eek: weren't they just born last week?? Lol. I was wondering last night about the other versions of the bumbo. We have one bumbo that was Grace's, but with 2 boys, we'll probably get another one (or something similar). I was looking on craigslist last night and saw a chair that is similar, but has a play ring type thing all the way around - looked kinda cool.
I guess my question is - does anyone have or prefer one of the other types of little seats? If so, what do you like about it that might make you choose it over a bumbo?
Thanks Smile

We have a bumbo with a tray but haven't used it yet--still too little! He may be in it soon though--he's holding his head up more and more.

We have a Prince Lionheart one (I think?) it's from wal-mart.

I haven't used one for Caden yet. I bought one for Dylan with the tray, but he hated it so it went back to the store. So, I have no advice for you. Haven't decided about buying one this time around. Let me know what you decide.

I'm torn 'cuz we have the one bumbo - and Grace LOVED it (literally, she sat in it until she reached the point where it stuck to her when she stood up!). It would be easy to have 2 of the same thing (and, thinking ahead, less change for toddler drama over who gets which chair....) BUT some of the other ones are easier to get (less pricey on craigslist) and the one with the tray all the way around looks like it might be fun. Pamela, I was looking at a Prince Lionheart one online - you wouldn't happen to know if it's a little deeper than the bumbo would you? Jacob isn't quite ready for the bumbo - it's almost like he's too tall - there's not enough support until he has total head control I guess.
