2.0 out of 5 stars MY BABY GOT HIS HEAD STUCK!, April 23, 2009
This review is from: Fisher-Price Rainforest Open Top Take-Along Swing with Music and Mobile (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Baby Product)
We loved this swing because it was small and the baby would sleep in it for hours. This swing was recalled in May 2007 due to an entrapment issue, but the model we had was produced AFTER the recall. However, my 4-month old son has gotten his head/neck entrapped between the seat and the frame in a "post-recall" Rainforest version of the Open Top Take-Along Swing, TWICE! It was purchased at the end of 2008 and my son was tightly strapped in but able to use his feet to push himself sideways and get his neck trapped while it was swinging. It is dangerous and was terrifying to see. Although our model was not included in the official 2007 recall of this swing, the problem has still obviously not been fixed...don't buy this swing, it is dangerous and not worth the risk!

Thank you I had no idea there was a recall on this product. So sorry you had to experience that. Must have been scary.

I have the same problem! My model starts w M and they only recalled some K models. I want to know what they did to improve it.

Evee, do you mean your baby got stuck as well on the M model? I just bought a used M model and want to make sure it is perfectly safe for my grandson to use.
