WATCH: Jolly jumping baby gives Riverdance stars a run for their money

Kali Jazz: The baby Jean Butler

Katie Mythen-Lynch

The Jolly Jumper, a bouncing baby seat that affixes to the door frame, has been amusing parents for years. Thanks to a little clever editing however, one proud dad has turned his cute family footage into a viral sensation.

Little Kali Jazz likes to sit in her jumper and leap about to music but with dad’s Riverdance-esque soundtrack, her random leaps are transformed into a carefully coordinated dance routine.

Mum Stacy-Ann commented: “Kali Jazz has a lot of favorite games but she loves the Jolly Jumper and actually crawls to it and points at it and laughs when she wants to go for a ride.

“One day I had to go out for an hour or so and I left my hubby home alone with our princess and he thought it would be fun to film her having a good time in the Jolly Jumper. When it was nap time he looked at what he had shot and thought that she had pretty excellent dance moves and decided to edit the video and create Kali of the Dance. I laughed so freakin’ hard when I saw it almost peed my pants.”

We’re inclined to agree.
