  • Don't know what my husband and I would have done without this. It is perfect for the first 4 months! Mar 16, 2017

  • My 2nd child lived in her swing like this she loved it so much even after she was too big for it she wanted to sit in it Mar 10, 2017

  • A little loud but my daughter loves to swing Jan 26, 2017

  • This is ok for an infant but the seat doesn't really get in a sit up position which would help it last longer as the child grows and no longer wants to be in a lying down position Jan 21, 2017

  • Both my girls loved the mobile and lights. Pretty noisy when rocking. Never had an issue with tipping. Does take up quite a bit of space. Love the speed and music options. Cushion could be improved. Dec 31, 2016

    Used it with my oldest and kept it in storage for 8 years. Now using with my newborn. I still love the theme. It cleans up nicely, and still works perfectly. The stars projection is my favorite part Dec 30, 2016

  • I love it but my daughter grew out of it really fast and now I have to get another one. It's a really good swing my daughter slept amazing in it. Dec 06, 2016

  • When the swing worked it was fantastic. I had 2 motors burn out. However, each time I called Fisher Price, they sent a free replacement motor with no problem. It is a must have! Nov 04, 2016

  • Such a lifesaver for new moms. When my girls were infants this was the only place I could put them down without crying. Must have! Oct 05, 2016

    Great for newborns, it lays back far enough so baby's head doesn't fall forward. Plug in is a must have over batteries. Sep 17, 2016

  • love it and so does baby the 2 directions it swings the light music everything for awhile lost the cord and ended up using one for the wall and worked good for a 9volt phone cord good for when sick Jun 06, 2016

  • My daughter loves her swing, the first few weeks that was the only place she would sleep other than our arms! Now as she's getting a little older the music and lights has her enthralled. Jun 02, 2016

  • Great features. Keeps baby cozy and soothed. Love the projection mobile. May 06, 2016

  • I loved it! The option to plug it up saved us so much on batteries. Swinging from front to back, or side to side, is wonderful for the bewitching hour for a fussy baby. lights & music = happy baby! Jan 19, 2016

  • My girls both loved this swing. They enjoyed the side to side motion and front to back. The lights helped calm them down and music helped them fall aslep. Many times they have napped in there Dec 05, 2015

    I love how the stars light up on our swing, it is really nice. Jul 14, 2015

  • I do love this, as it's cute & my daughter loved the music & the stars, & would often fall asleep comfortably in it. However, the motor wears out quickly & becomes loud, & it's somewhat weak. Dec 12, 2014

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE. My daughter was happy to be in this while I got laundry or cleaning done. Nov 11, 2014

  • Just love this! Oct 31, 2014

    I enjoyed all the features on this swing, the only down part was that seat wasn't adjustable and did not recline when baby was finally asleep, & the tray was hard to detach. Oct 30, 2014

  • I have used multiple swings and this is by far my favorite. Sep 30, 2014

  • my daughter loved her swing, i could put her in and she would just relax swinging away Sep 30, 2014

  • Best purchase we had. Could sleep for hours. Sometimes the only thing to calm them. Aug 21, 2014

  • Great swing that plugs in so you don't go through a pack of batteries a day. Aug 13, 2014

  • Got this as a hand-me-down and the little one loved it. He'd nap in it when he was little. Great for the first 4 months especially. Jul 16, 2014

  • This was a life saver for a colicky baby!! Jun 30, 2014

  • I want this. Jun 23, 2014

  • At 4 months our baby is just getting interested in this. But the way the neck cushion is (which is sewn in place and not removable) she slumps over really easily and doesn't seem comfortable. Jun 23, 2014

  • My daughter loves the lights! I just wish the seat reclined more for comfortable naps. Jun 23, 2014

  • Works for what it is. Wish it had a smaller footprint. We don't use the curtain. Jun 23, 2014

  • It was nice, but our baby never really took to the swing. Borrow one to make sure your baby is soothed by the swing before spending the money. Jun 23, 2014

  • Love Jun 23, 2014

  • This was given as a hand me down and we LOVED it! The only modification I did was to remove the netting and take out the infant "pillow" since it put her neck at a weird angle. Any swing is a must Jun 19, 2014

  • I have the coral swing like this and we loved it! May 30, 2014

  • Love this. While I'm not big into gadgets for babies, it was a blessing to have somewhere to put baby where he was happy for a few minutes when it wasn't feasible for me to hold him! Apr 29, 2014

  • My daughter hated it, so mostly it just took up space. Hoping my son likes it better. Feb 11, 2014

  • My little one didn't care for it. Feb 04, 2014

  • Think we got our swing a little too late. Didn't get much use out of it, we thought it would help with the naps/sleeping, but we wasted our money on this. Jan 24, 2014

  • Borrowed a friends as this is a large piece of equipment and has a short life span (in terms of baby liking it), but I couldn't survive at home without it. Oct 31, 2013

  • I loved this but went through two of them. My son was such a fan. They just wear out so quickly. Oct 17, 2013

  • Loved the star lights with this model. Takes up a lot of room though so not great for tight spaces. Jun 14, 2013
