This is the kind of reader mail that gets us excited! Faithful reader Craig sent in this bouncer makeover:

Our daughter Stanley really likes to bounce, so we were psyched when a friend offered up her Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders bouncy seat. Sadly, we weren't so psyched with the design—it didn't go with a single item in our home. With the expert seamstress help of my mother-in-law, we were able to turn some sale-rack Target bedding into a neat modern slipcover. Couple that with some white gloss spray paint and a magnet-turned-on/off switch, and there you have it. The Fisher-Price Baby Bouncer Remodel.

We love the ingenuity at work here and agree that the remodel is a vast improvement. Now why can't Fisher Price get a clue that parents want simple, not-so-loud designs?

Thanks for sharing this terrific project with Ohdeedoh, Craig!
