This swing both eased my daughter to sleep when necessary and also kept her entertained when I needed to have my hands free. The option of plugging it in or using batteries was extremely helpful...we didn't go through a thousand bucks in D cells! You can easily bring this swing along with you when visiting family. The musical and sound choices are great, and when the speaker in my unit blew out, Fisher Price replaced the entire motor housing at no charge to me. You couldn't ask for better customer service!
The swing folds up somewhat for ease of storage. You can turn the swing so it swings sideways or front to back, which is a nice feature. The mobile is adorable and very bright and colorful. You can also swing the mobile up and out of the way if it is too stimulating for the baby.
The animal theme is fun and brightly colored. This can be used up to 25 lbs., or until your child tries to sit up and climb out of it, as mine did! She truly enjoyed being in this swing. I almost wish she hadn't grown out of it so soon. :-)
