This is a very basic swing, but it has all it needs for a baby to be content. I bought this swing more than four years ago, but it is still in perfect condition.

My oldest son loved this swing so much, when he was a baby that we decided to bring it with us to Europe for our second child. I am very happy that we did, since my youngest son loved it just as much. Now that my youngest son has outgrown the swing, we have passed it on to my little niece who has been very colicky and difficult to soothe. Well, this swing did the job in her family as well. We have also let another family with a crying baby borrow it for a few months, and they loved it too.

The swing has three adjustable steps for its reclining back, which is an excellent feature, because this means that it can be used very early on for short periods time (15 minutes to begin with). It seems very calming and the babies love it.

My version of this swing comes with music, and two toys. A monkey and a mirror with rattling little balls on the one side, both toys have been a hit with my boys, and the lion with the turning hair has been a favorite buddy of theirs.

The seat cushion is very easy to keep clean, you can easily clean it off with a wet cloth, or you can even take the cushion off and wash it. I have probably washed it four times (it has been in use for a total of approximately 24 months), and the cushion still looks like new.

I think this swing is great for babies 2 months to 8 months, but it can be used for a bit younger or older babies. My boys did not want to sit in it though, from when they were about 8 months, since they were so busy with exploring their new found world.

This swing has been an excellent way for me to get some work done, because it would keep my kids busy, while I could work right next to them.

When storing it, you just take the swing apart, and put it back in the box or in a plastic bag. It has a great click in system, and it is easy to reassemble. We lost the instructions during our first move, but I have not had any problems assembling it without the instructions.

Although our swing comes with a music feature, it has still been very economical to use. I have probably changed the batteries (4 D batteries) two times for each of my sons.

I can definitely recommend this swing to all parents. I do not think it is necessary to have all the extra accessories, since it is the back and forth movement that does the job.
