Pros:don't need batteries, great lights and music, rotates
Cons:canopy is within reach of child
The Bottom Line: GET THIS SWING!!! I haven't seen anything like it on the market. Babies love the lights and music and anything that is this interactive without batteries is a must!
This swing has been a lifesaver for us! I dread the day my little guy gets too big for it! From the first day we brought him home from the hospital, he has loved it. At night, I turn on the light feature and stars fill the room, which keeps him entertained for quite a while. The music is honestly the best quality sound I have heard from any baby item (most of them have that tinny sound), and the mobile is great. Other than the lights, my favorite thing about this swing is that it rotates so the baby can swing side to side or front to back. At first, I didn't think that would be a big deal but as my house got more and more taken over with baby toys, pack and plays, and jumperoos, I am thrilled that this can be flush against the wall, taking up as little space as possible and he can be face out, swinging side to side and watching everything that is going on in the room!

Most importantly, I owe the few hours of rest that I got during my baby's first couple of months to this swing. My little guy is extremely active and hates to just be sitting for more than 20 seconds! I constantly have to be walking or dancing around the house with him and he was the worst sleeper (at night when he would wake up, he would want to be up for hours, which of course meant yours truly was also up for hours!) Well, with this swing, I was able to feed him and change him at night, then put him right in the swing while I would pass out on the couch. So now, instead of crying, he would just entertain himself until he fell asleep. This helped get him used to the fact that night is NOT playtime and now he literally falls right back to sleep (in his crib!) after he's fed and changed.
Finally, one last great feature that this swing has is the fact that you can choose if you want to use batteries with it, or if you want to just plug it into the wall, meaning, you NEVER HAVE TO SEARCH FOR BATTERIES AGAIN and it won't ever stop when you need it most! Why aren't more kids toys like this?!
The only negative thing I have found with this swing is that the canopy is within reach of the child and my little boy, now at 4 months of age loves to grab on and pull.
