  • Too bulky and doesn’t stand up while folded up. Feb 07, 2019

  • This is a godsend! Our tiny man loves swinging in it, and it collapses nearly flat and therefore is amazing for travel! We don't travel overnight anywhere without this! Jan 29, 2019

  • We purchased this swing to keep at Grandma and Grandpa's house. While it is a space-saver, my LO isn't a huge fan. It will keep her occupied for a little while, but she prefers the larger swings. Nov 08, 2018

  • My son is still not sure about this swing. He is only 5 weeks only so I will continue to try it. He does seem like his head is at an uncomfortable position not sure if it is because he is too small. Oct 25, 2018

  • Compact, easy to travel with! Oct 20, 2018

  • Love this swing my baby loves it and I can easily move it where ever I want it !! Very useful ! Oct 04, 2018

  • 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. Oct 04, 2018

  • Was back and forth b/t this and a rock n play, got this and hardly ever used it. Baby didn't take to it as an infant, later on would tolerate it while I got ready in the bathroom but by then was 2 big Sep 16, 2018

  • Good small swing but my 4 month old has almost outgrown it Sep 06, 2018

  • The swing takes up minimal space, has multiple settings and is easy to move! I'd even bring it into the kitchen so I could be hands free with her safe & happy. Totally Worth It!! Jun 20, 2018

  • I love the little songs it plays! The only downfall is once the timer is off and the swing stops swinging my son wakes right up! Wish the timer would set for a longer period! Jun 18, 2018

  • We got this for grandmas house. It’s very easy to use and the way it folds is nice for storage. I dislike the knob used for increasing speed because it can be noisy and wake baby Jun 09, 2018

  • My baby falls asleep in ithis and I can actually get a few things done! It’s a nice alternative to the bouncer that I have to keep moving manually! I don’t like that the music only has two volumes. Jun 07, 2018

  • We loved this, along with both babies! It's easy to setup, batteries last forever, folds pretty tight for out of sight storage! May 30, 2018

    Absolutely loved this swing. Love how portable it is and took up minimal space. My daughter slept in this for 4 months. Music and speeds were perfect for us. Feb 02, 2018

    Decided to register for this from a friend rec. Not super clear instructions on how to put together - had seat wrong for a while. Now babe loves it, super lightweight & portable - cute music & toys Feb 02, 2018

  • This is amazing. When my 3 month old needs to be in sight I put her in this and she loves it. I love the timer feature and that you can select the swing speed. It folds up thin and fits anywhere’s Feb 02, 2018

  • Baby loves this swing. The music is soothing and it’s a good place to hang out after being overstimulated from daily activities. I like that it has two seat positions also. Jan 31, 2018

  • Love! This product is great for soothing a tired baby! Aug 24, 2017

  • Bought on clearance, easy to transport, and fit our needs perfectly. Kept baby happy and was the right price and now it is stored and out of the way unlike larger models. Jul 27, 2017

  • Had this for 2 days & returned it. So flimsy, felt like it was going to fall apart with my 7lb baby in it. Plus her head wasnt stable bc it wasnt reclined enough. And the buckle was too big not tight! Jan 18, 2017

  • This is a necessity if your baby loves to swing! This soothed my baby from day one. I love how easy it is to fold up for storage or travel. I highly recommend it! Dec 06, 2016

  • It's cheap and small - my son actually hated it though. He would scream every time. My niece loves it though. Puts her right to sleep. Nov 22, 2016

  • My son loved to sleep in this, but it takes giant batteries and ran out of battery power really quickly. also can only stay on for 15 min so had to keep restarting it, and he would wake up. Sep 02, 2016

  • We bought this for our shore cottage since it was portable. Worked so well we bought one for my moms. Lent it to my friend, she bought one too. It is the best small, easily portable swing! Jun 23, 2016

  • Got this as a gift, it was nice to use for maybe 2 months but now she tries to scoot out of it even when buckled. Feb 07, 2016

  • Easily stores. Multiple speed settings and music. Good for travel Feb 07, 2016

  • The weight limit should be higher only used first 3 months. But it was a lifesaver when nothing else would get her to go to sleep. Jan 14, 2016

  • Nice neutral swing that doesn't take up a ton of space, but the design is a bit clunky. It turns out my son isn't crazy about swings so I'm glad we didn't spend a fortune on the 4moms swing I wanted. Oct 07, 2015
