Boppy Swing- The Good with the Bad
, January 4, 2008
Bought the boppy swing for my 3rd baby because of the small size. Easily fits in every room of the house and folds up for travel. For everything I like about it there is something I dont like...
small/compact with every needed feature of a regular sized swing
batteries lasted 4 months with everyday use
has a timer and shuts off automatically in case mom/dad forget
music is peaceful and has 2 volume settings
lots of different swinging levels
neutral colors easily hide the swing
doesnt lock closed when folded so you have to hold it the right way or it springs open
seat was too mushy for newborn stage so I had to put a blanket under his butt/legs to even him out or else his head was compressed into his body.
i wish the pillow could be removed
toys are blah
when my little one began to grab the toys he ripped off the toy bar breaking the plastic clip-- he had this in his hand! Now the toy bar cannot be used at all.
the motor stopped working now that he is 6mos old. in other words, my swing is broken!
With 2 other children at home I know from experience that this is a great swing but they need to fix a few things for not only safety but quality.
