By Courtney Levesque on November 29, 2011
This swing is pretty awesome. It's very quiet when in use, and has a dial to find just the right speed. The seat is large and has two recline positions and can be adjusted while the baby is in the swing. The songs are nice and not too loud. Overall the swing is a nice size and doesn't take up a lot of space. It's really easy to fold and unfold whenever you want to move or use it. My only complaint is that the toys face away from the baby. While the toys are cute, I think the baby would get more enjoyment out of them if they faced the baby and not the parent. I was able to fix the problem by just unscrewing the end cap of the toy bar and rethreading the fabric sleeve so the toys faced the baby. It took maybe 5 minutes total to do and now the baby can see them.

*** Update *** : My daughter is almost 9 months old and still using this swing. She has been taking naps in it for the past few months. She is almost 20 pounds and the swing does not strain at all to swing her. I have washed the seat a few times and it has held up nicely as well.

My daughter has a large Graco swing that can be portable but doesn't fold down easy. I bought this to keep in my trunk for when we travel to friends and families houses. It folds down very easily which makes getting it in and out a breeze. My daughter loves this and actually falls asleep within minutes of being in it. The only thing I don't like about it is that, although it has a timer, it shuts off automatically after 1 hour. At first I thought the batteries died and I was actually mad because I thought this thing would blow through batteries but then I realized that it automatically shuts off. Overall, I like this swing and it was very easy to assemble.

We are very happy with this product. They colors are very nice and our baby loves it. It is small enough not to take up half of the room, and it folds up for storage. Excellent but for any little baby!

This swing is flat, so your baby is laying down, looking straight up. This works for our 7 week old, but when she's a few months old, she'll want to look out at the world, out up at the ceiling. Also, the mobile is very difficult to attach and the little toys face the opposite way from baby. This is very strange to me and my husband and I both tried to fit it the opposite way, but it only attaches with the toys facing away from the baby.

This swing only works if the legs are positions in a certain way so that the side bar of the swing doesn't rub on the connector joint. Sometimes it would take me 5 minutes to angle them so that the swing would move. Also, compared to other swings we have borrowed, my baby found the angle of this one very uncomfortable. I gave this 2 stars for the nice music and mobility of the swing.

I love this swing. The only problem we encountered the activity bar when snapped Into place the swing stops moving. So we don't don't use the bar. I like that the swing folds up. My baby is 15lbs 5 months. I think 5 more pounds she might be to big and long for this swing

The toys on the bar face away from the baby, this just seems ridiculous.
I don't have the bar attached anymore bc it is just in the way when trying to put baby in or take baby out of the swing. It is hard to remove and put back on.

I feel like the straps should be able to adjust higher. My baby is long and light weight and the straps wind up behind his shoulders.

I think the music should have a volume control.

The only time I wind up using this is when I need to shower. So it does the job for the short amount of time it is needed. But if you are planning on using a swing more frequently, I would look into one with more padding around the sides for newborns, volume control for the music, and a better toy bar.

The swing is pretty nice, it looks different in person the material is a lot lighter. The speed works well it doesn't go too fast or too slow, it is just right. I like the songs they are the perfect volume. The only complaint I have thus far is that the toy bar faces away from the baby and apparantly the way you put the toy bar on is dumb because my boyfriend broke ours trying to put it on so we don't even have a toy bar. Other than that it is a good swing easy to store and use.
