  • Such a loud motor and made a clicking sound. Was so annoying we returned it. Baby wouldn’t smooth because of the sound and the jerking it made! She was only like 8 pounds so not like she was too heavy Nov 30, 2022

    This swing is fine. It's a bit noisy, which gets on my nerves, but aside from that no real complaints. I like that it works either electric or with batteries... for those of us whose pets chew cords Nov 30, 2022

  • Waiting on baby to arrive to try this out! Oct 07, 2022

  • I think the set up was nice but my daughter hated being placed in it. I had to give it away. Sep 08, 2022

    Simple swing just left to right with different levels but we usually just kept it at 1 and played decent music which you can adjust volume or turn off. Bulky but light and stars don't spin, you do it Aug 09, 2022

  • Could not get through the first few months without this. Baby loved to swing. Jul 28, 2022

  • Our little one doesn’t find this swing comfortable. Spend more money for a better one Jul 25, 2022

  • Rocking gets pretty slow to get going after a month or so of use. Overall it fit baby well and was quiet when in use. The music was nice and the vibration. Jul 02, 2022

  • My daughter loves it now that she's 9lbs. The bucket seat wasn't great when she was smaller because it squished her. It could be a bit more sturdy. Very lightweight and can run on batteries. May 27, 2022

  • I love the variety of speed settings. My baby loves to swing and stare at the mobile! May 03, 2022

  • I do love this swing, as does my daughter. My only complaint is that it is very large and hard to move around. The mobile on top is also stationary which isn’t as engaging. Apr 27, 2022

  • THis is a great swing! especially for a larger baby! love that it vibrates as well as swings Apr 20, 2022

    My grandson loves his swing. It is great for when my daughter has to make bottles or clean up and it helps sooth him when he is overtired and can't go to sleep! Apr 05, 2022

    Okay I don’t know what I would do without this swing!! Is a life saver to be 100 % honest. My baby uses it every single day. It soothes him and helps him fall asleep during nap time. Mar 29, 2022

  • #1 baby recommendation is a swing. My baby spent so much time staring at the stars and hanging out in his swing. It would always calm him down! The pads are so easy to wash. Mar 13, 2022

  • First baby could live in this thing. She would sit happily for hours. Does take up a lot of space and is hard to store, but worth it to have a great spot for baby to hang out when my hands are full. Feb 17, 2022

    Super inconvenient to move from room to room and takes up a large amount of space, baby doesn't hate it but doesn't love it. Feb 04, 2022

  • Loved this swing made it easy to put the baby down and it has 3 different settings also like the music and natural music !! My daughter was very comfortable in it she slept like nothing !! Jan 28, 2022

    I love that it has so many different speeds, as well as different sounds and music. My newborn really loved the music. We even bought a second one to have on upstairs and one downstairs. Jan 11, 2022

  • My baby likes to swing in this product. Was a little difficult to put together initially and wish the star mobile actually moved but a good swing for the price point. Jan 05, 2022

  • I was hoping for it to keep him occupied for a bit while I cleaned around the house, but he screams when we put him in. Its too inclined to be comfortable for an infant and the straps are too rigid. Dec 07, 2021

  • The seat is somewhat odd, I felt like it was oddly round and the incline was off. And just that my baby looked uncomfortable in it. We had 2 swings and she did not like being in this one at all. Nov 24, 2021

    The straps seem to be uncomfortable around the neck, but baby really likes it. Vibration freaks me out, but baby loves it. The music is great classical music. Relatively small footprint for a swing. Nov 06, 2021

  • Extremely affordable and just as useful as the more expensive baby swings. Sep 23, 2021

  • My son loved this swing, hopefully the new babies do as well! Sep 13, 2021

  • My son spits up every time we put him in this regardless of how long after he ate Sep 10, 2021

  • We wanted something simple and didn’t want to invest too much money into a swing. This fit the bill and was easy to move around the room to move out of the way as needed. Aug 18, 2021

    This has been an absolute lifesaver. I have twins and they both love it. I definitely recommend getting a swing if you have multiples. Aug 03, 2021

    Doesn't hold the baby In position. Neck support is missing. Maybe better for older babies. Jul 23, 2021

  • This is objectively a nice swing with solid construction, but my daughter hated swinging side to side. We ended up buying a swing that can go both side to side and front to back. Jul 16, 2021

  • Kids never used it. Sits newborns up too upright so I was uncomfortable putting them in it Jul 06, 2021

  • One of the few swings that could swing hard enough to soothe my baby. May 08, 2021

  • Awesome swing! We used it for my son and now are using it with my twins. They have all loved it. Apr 28, 2021

    Didn't use this very often Mar 12, 2021

  • I’m neutral. It was too big for my newborn it’s a huge bucket type seat. Also thought it would be quite smaller, the base is really wide. Swing settings get quite fast! Feb 24, 2021

  • Baby loves napping in this swing Feb 05, 2021

  • This swing is nice. It rocks back and forth, changes directions and vibrates. However it did not have enough padding to keep my little comfortable. The straps are a little sharp on his neck and should Jan 29, 2021

  • This swing worked very well for us! Our daughter usually slept in this during the day for naps. The music and vibration are fine but we mostly just let her swing without them. I’d recommend to friends Jan 24, 2021
