I really wanted to like this more. Let's start with the positives. The fabric is bright, cherry, uplifting. Since baby items, especially furniture, is out and not tucked in a closet how it looks matters. I LOVE these colors! They make me happy. As far as assembly goes, I had to check the directions a few times for some steps. I think I was distracted since I included my 2.5yr old daughter in the assembly process that my focus was off. Word to the wise, don't let a little one hold the screws. While attempting to help, she put one in an open area and it got stuck. Had to fish it out which took awhile and some creativity on my end. So seat is lovely, has a vibrate option which is pretty common (but much more quiet than others on the market which I appreciate), easy buckle to keep little one in. I'll add though that my daughter, now almost 6 months, does really push up on her feet while bucked in and then tries to lean over the side. I'm sure she's NOT going to fall out but she doesn't always like being in this one. The arch feels a little flimsy and came out of the box looking not perfectly shaped when attached to seat. After some time, the plastic seemed to relax and it looks shaped correctly but still feels a little flimsy. The toys are cute but kids can only "bat" at them. This one doesn't hold my 6month olds attention for very long. Back to the fabric for a second....I love how it attached with plastic snaps that just pop right in. My 2.5yr old LOVED helping with this step. I'm curious to see how my 6 mo likes it as a toddler rocker. Right now, my actual toddler doesn't seem very interested. As far as baby seats go, this one is pretty straight forward. The real seat winner we had in our house was one that had an arch with lights on it. That one was golden!
