I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this swing. It has so many great features:
It is larger than the smaller portable swings, but not so huge that it is too cumbersome. It folds up nicely and doesn't take up too much space.
The colors and design are very cute (adorable insects and such) and gender-neutral.
The swing is comfortable and sturdy. I feel like my baby is safe and snug and has plenty of room (she is 7 months old).
The moving images that are projected on the canopy are actually pretty neat! I was skeptical about that, thinking it would be over-the-top and too much stimulation for my little one, but it is subtle and nice.
The music is GREAT. I have definitely heard my share of annoying baby toy music (and I am a harsh critic, being a classical musician and piano teacher), and this is probably the best I have heard on a baby toy. It is definitely still synthesized but is very subtle and is a nice assortment of classical tunes (Beethoven, etc.). I don't mind listening to this music!
The swing works great and can actually go pretty fast - it has more power than my small portable swing. So far the batteries have worked great.
I can't really think of anything I don't love about this swing. Highly-recommended!
