  • Of all swings, my son loved this super inexpensive one the most! I liked that it didn't have to be plugged up to use and only has a battery option. You just have to buy bulk C batteries from amazon. Feb 24, 2021

  • My son didn't really enjoy this swing as it goes back and forth. We registered for this because we could take it places easier. It was easy to fold and put in the car. Feb 24, 2021

  • Barely swings and kills battery Jan 18, 2021

  • We got the elephant one of these. Best thing we ever bought. Life saver for getting our son to sleep and for calming him down when he was super cranky, using with our second now and still amazing. Dec 22, 2020

  • Love this swing! My child loves to sit and look around as it swings back and forth! Easy to fold and compact for travel! Battery operated makes so easy to take to the park or on a trip! Nov 21, 2020

  • This was great in the first couple months of traveling with baby. Easy to fold and pack in car or out of way once home. Double uses as converts into seat. Con is it only runs on batteries. Nov 17, 2020

  • This was great for taking baby to the babysitters house. Sep 22, 2020

  • This is a lifesaver while I do dishes or laundry. She loves her large swing but it’s just inconvenient to move from room to room. I also bring this to friends houses as it’s easy to transport. Sep 13, 2020

  • My baby never liked this swing. I tried many times and she was never into it. I think it is a nice product and well made but didn’t work for my little one Aug 24, 2020

  • Had for last baby. Worked ok not a little loud when running Aug 14, 2020

  • I really appreciate having this for travel. It fits easily in our luggage and is easy to assemble. It obviously doesn’t have as many features as a full swing but it works well! May 17, 2020

    Its simple and compact easy to travel with! Apr 29, 2020

  • It’s kind of boring, no lights, mobile doesn’t move. Just swings back and forth. My baby didn’t like it. It’s nice that it’s portable, but just all around not a good purchase Mar 17, 2020

  • Eats batteries like they’re candy. Feb 12, 2020

  • Loved this I could take it with me to grandparents house or sports games for our other children Jan 17, 2020

  • Easy to bring this swing everywhere. It was always in my trunk, easy to set up. My son loved this portable swing, brought on many vacations. Dec 29, 2019

  • This is what I wanted: a “regular” baby swing. It folds flat and is easy to move out of way and load in the car. I have twins so those things are important to me. Reasonable cost as well. Nov 14, 2019

    I like this swing because it was much more compact than others, and in my little house that’s super helpful! I also like the folding aspect for storage. Neither of my boys liked swinging though... Nov 06, 2019

    Couldn't seem to handle my average baby's weight. Sep 30, 2019

    I love the ability to take it with us easily since it folds up and is light weight! Easy to clean! Love the timer for motion and music! LO loves it too! Sep 18, 2019

  • It was just a nice and simple baby swing with many different settings. It worked for its purpose, nothing more nothing less. Sep 10, 2019

  • Portable swings are great space savers! Baby things seem to take over and thus helos to eliminate that. Aug 20, 2019

  • My baby did not like this. The batteries don’t last long and the music stopped working after a couple weeks. Jul 29, 2019

  • Folds up - great for storage. Has a timer and multiple swing speeds. I purchased shoulder strap pads separately for added comfort. Jul 14, 2019

  • Like it. Just not much adjusting to set. Apr 14, 2019

  • Review pending Apr 08, 2019

  • This was great because it was compact but it really wasn't sturdy. The music mechanism broke on the first day and the attachment for the hanging toys was broken. Mar 29, 2019

  • I purchased this item, and ending up returning it. I don’t regret purchasing it, as I think it would work if absolutely needed, and it is an affordable option. We just decided to go a different route. Mar 26, 2019
