A) My "kid" was literally 3 weeks old when she nearly kicked herself out of it. Though abnormal for that age, my point was that the shelf life for a Bumbo is significantly reduced because of the limitations on features. Once we switched to the bebePOD, we could use it on the floor as a baby chair/sit trainer, or strapped to a chair as a booster/high chair. My daughter is now 15 months old and still uses her bebePOD, I wouldn't be saying that with a Bumbo.
B) My child was a skinny-minnie (25th %ile) and fit in her Bumbo. My nieces and nephews all had "chunky" legs (50-75th %ile) and could not fit in the Bumbo. It is a fair assessment that many children will not fit in the Bumbo because of the legholes.
My only question to those that simply LOVE their Bumbo: Why not get a Bumbo that will last more than a few months for about the same price? Just saying...

Anybody else get theirs yet? How was the play tray packaged? Was it in the same hexagonal box as the Bumbo or in a separate box? Maybe I'm somehow completely overlooking it somehow?
The safety belt repair kit was inside but that was it.
