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 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!
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! :)
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!
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 purchased this swing used but I love it. I was given a regular sit-up style swing but could not get my newborn to sit safely in it. I saw this swing and thought I would give it a try. My daughter seems very content and sleeps soundly. The music, sounds, and mobil are a great thing to have while she is awake. And she can lay in it now and sit up in it when she gets bigger. If I had not of found this one used I would pay full price for it.
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.
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!
I bought this swing used for my granddaughter and she loves it! My daughter uses it every day for her, sometimes for hours as she naps, and only has to change the batteries about once a month. The only complaint my daughter has is now my granddaughter is trying to sit up more and the seat only reclines. Overall, though, this is a wonderful swing.
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.
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.
This product is very helpful, as it gives me some time to do other work. But i am not totally satisfied with the product because i got this 3 weeks ago and now it's mobile is not moving. and on the product it is written two way swing but it is not in the same swing. you will have to choose from either of the two type. I was unaware of this fact and came to know only after i bought this product.
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 papasan swing has features that I was unsure if it was going to be worth anything, but my daughter loves staring at herself and music. Switching from cradle to swing is very easy and not as difficult as I thought it would be. I love this swing and would recommend it to others.
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.
I have only used this swing for a couple of weeks so I cannot comment on durability. My baby loves this swing and falls asleep in it every time allowing us to do other things like make dinner or clean the house. Thus far the only negative design flaw is the lack of ac power. It is powered only by batteries. I still have the initial batteries installed and I am hopping that it will last a long time.
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.
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 like everything about this swing, however the tray is a little hard to latch and unlatch. You have to use both hands which can be hard when you're holding a baby in one arm. We sometimes just don't attach the tray, so it's not too big of a deal.
