Overall I like this swing very much. My baby likes the music and the mirror above. She likes to watch the bees move around as well. the only complaint is that the cloth for the seat is hard to put on. It seems it needs to be about a quarter to half an inch longer to make it easier to take on and off for washing purposes. Other than that, its a great swing.
I just wish that the seat was adjustable. It only stays in the reclined position, so I don't know how good it will be when she gets older and wants to sit up more. For now she loves it...she is in it about 4-6 hours a day. It puts her right to sleep.
We bought this swing once our first child was 3 months. We originally bought one that plugged in thinking we could save on batteries, but it didn't have many features. We love the fact this swing lays back, has comfort features with the head rest, and swings like a cradle as well as forward and back. The set-up was very easy, it was probably the easiet set up out of every baby item we have bought so far. My only complaint is the noise it makes when swinging, although if you have other noise in the background, including the music, you may not notice it. Overall it was a great purchase and our baby seems to like it as well.
My baby does like this swing. When baby swings side to side the lowest setting still seems a bit strong. I expected the swing to turn in both directions not just to the right. Songs are so so and stop playing to soon.
This is a great swing! It does the trick when baby is so fussy! I only gave it 4 stars for a few categories because it does use batteries and does not plug in. I would recommend going with one that is 10 dollars more and plugs into the outlet. Overall though, not bad!
Swings are definetely a lifesaver! My son sits and sleeps contently in this swing all the time. He loves to watch the toys rotate around the top and it also plays a few different tunes. Unfortunately the first music option was our favorite and after 2 1/2 months that tune doesn't play correctly anymore, it sounds as if the batteries are dying, but they aren't. Otherwise this swing is perfect. We use it quite often and the batteries last about a month.

Loving his handsome refletion in the overhead mirror! :)
I love this product because my Baby Girl loves it. She loves the music and the insects at the top, but does get bored after awhile with them. But since it rocks her side to side she falls asleep. My co-workers told me to get this kind of swing because it helps Baby not spit up so much as to swinging front to back.
My baby girl likes the swing a lot. The side to side motion is a preference to her. I have a forward swing and she would much rather be in the papasan swing. She likes the mirror mobile. I wish the mobile had lights with it, though. That would make it better. Be sure you fasten the belt in it even if your baby is very small. The swinging motion moves them - especially if you have a wiggle worm like mine.
this swing has helped me out a lot! I just had twins and one likes to be held and the other likes to swing. the only down fall is there is now power cord to run it you need 4 D batteries and that adds up when one swings as much as mine does! other then that i love it!
My husband and I actually purchased two of these swings, one for the bedroom (where our baby sleeps) and one for the living room. From birth, our baby did not sleep well laying completely horizontal so this swing is a lifesaver! She literally sleeps in the swing at night which is reclined to its full papasan position yet still keeps her a bit vertical. She also loves the mirror and watching the mobile. I also like that the tray is removable and the piece that goes between baby's legs is built into the tray, not the seat. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars? It only takes D batteries and I wish it would have an electrical plug. We had been going through about 4 D batteries a week which can get very expensive. We finally purchased a charger and rechargeable batteries so we just switch them out every other day, but a cord would be even better!
I love this swing! We first had one of the swings without the craddle part and he didn't like it. After I bought this one he loved it. He loves looking at himself in the mirror and listening to the sounds. It didn't seem hard to put together either.
My daughter is 9 weeks and we've been using this product from the beginning. She loves it. The only problem is that the batteries die very quickly. I recommend leaving it on a lower setting. She likes it going fast and on the highest setting, but buying batteries are costing more than the swing itself.
When I bought this swing when my son was 3 months old, he loved it! It was the first time he would let me put him down. He is now almost 7 months old and I am having to retire it. I would say that for me, it will not last until 25 lbs. My son weighs just 16 lbs. right now, but he is too big for the swing. He can reach up and grab the toys as they turn around, and at his current weight, the batteries wear out really fast. I wish I had bought it when he was first born. I had a regular swing then, which he hated. While it fit my son, it was great, but after only 3 and a half months, I am having to retire the swing. That makes it a little bit expensive in my book. Also, I thought it was pretty hard to put together, unlike some reviewers.
This swing gave me a mental break! My newborn son wanted to be held 24/7 and as much as I wanted to hold him, I just needed a break. We purchased it when he was 9 wks and I wish I would have got it sooner. He loves the mirror. This is a must-have for every mom.
I T was great except it didn't vibrate! I couldn't put up the bouncy seat we had b/c she wanted 2 vibrate at times. I would have loved it if it vibrated!! It would have been great if it went all around or in 1 more direction. the colors r fantastic if ur tired of pink, blue, or white!!! after 2 & 1/2 months ( she's 4 months now. ) the batteries had 2 be replaced in a shorter time. plus u have 2 give it a start, which i don't mind. She likes the mirror. A Tip: if u get this swing for a child under 25lbs, & they can sit up, then strap them in!!! when & if they fall asleep u might want 2 turn everything off. Imean everything!!!! the music/sound swith, the mobile switch, E-V-E-R-Y T-H-I-N-G!!!!! UNLESS U WANT 2 BUY BATTERIES!
Very pleased with product. Swings in 2 directions- easy to turn even when in motion. Sounds are good, although all music would be better than nature sounds. Very easy to set-up and does not take up a lot of room. Very helpful with a fussy baby who wants to be held all the time. Would recommend to anyone.
I recently purchased this swing for my newborn. We got the swing home and put it together and it was great, looked great. We put the baby in it, turned it on and nothing.... The music and the mobile were the only things to work. The swing would not swing. We really like the looks and the benefits of this swing, so we returned it and have ordered a new one. So hoping the next one is better:)
I like the swing and the fact you can change the direction from swing to cradle very easily. It was easy to assemble and I like the safety straps with the covers on them. The only thing I do not like is that is runs on 4 "D" batteries which don't last long. It would have been better if this item plugged into an outlet.
The baby swing does it's job. It's running as expected and the baby is getting good naps and enjoyable rides from it. Only caveat is that while swinging it makes somewhat loud clunking and squeaking noises which can wake a lightly sleeping baby. But, if your baby can get past that, it does a good job. Note - my first child hated this swing and screamed until removed. My second loves it. If you're trying to figure out if this is the right thing to buy, swing the child in a car seat using your arms first. If the child likes it, this swing will probably be popular. If not, skip the hassle of buying it, assembling it, finding this out, disassembling it and returning it to the store.
So far we really like this swing, our baby isn't due till April. But compared to other swings that swing side to side and front to back this swing is a great value. Also we really like the features. The only thing is it is not that portable.
