I DO NOT recommend this swing!
September 16, 2013
I DO NOT recommend this swing! It could have been SO good, but missed the mark almost everywhere. There are only a few things I like about it: the seat is made of very soft material, which ds likes. I love the removable bouncy seat feature! It's the only really great thing about this swing. I also like the sounds and tunes. Last, the harness is really easy to get on and off. That being said, I HATE this swing for a number of reasons. The motor is SO LOUD. It's like it's not synchronized with the actual motion of the seat, because the motor kicks to push the swing with a loud knock after the swing already goes back the other direction. In addition, the seat-to-swing-arm connection is not solid somehow, so it adds an extra tipping motion to the swinging that startles ds sometimes because it seems like he's going to tip over. Also, THERE'S NO PLUG! It's not like this is a particularly easy-to-move swing; it's so bulky it doesn't even go through the doorways from room to room without difficulty, so the exclusive battery power is ridiculous. It's a stationary swing. It needs a plug. The vibrator would be nice if it weren't also crazy loud. The casing isn't well made, so it buzzes loudly when the vibrator is on. And the mobile isn't mobile, or cute even. The dogs (or bears or whatever they are) are gray, so I'm not even sure ds can discern between them and the ceiling. They're completely unremarkable. The whole colour palate is muted (not a bad thing, it's cute), but the patterned accent material would have been a better choice for the mobile. And again, it should move. It's called a mobile for a reason. They could hardly have made it less attention grabbing. And finally, the pillow that I assume is meant to help stabilize the head is completely flat, and therefore completely useless. And since the seat is so wide, it really needs a head stabilizer. So all in all, though it has a (VERY) few good points, it's an expensive waste of money.
