  • Graco Open Top Swing: The Third Time's a Charm - For Swings

    Aug 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: no top bar, lots of speed, toys on tray, easy to wash padding
    Cons: lots of space to put together, tray doesn't stay up by itself for loading

    Summary: I've had 3 kids - and 3 different swings. My first one was a crank model. If my daughter fell asleep and I had to wind it up again, the mechanism was so loud that it often woke her up. My second swing was battery powered. I had no real complaints ... read more

  • Oh the Sweetness of the Swing

    Nov 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy; Comfortable Good Recline
    Cons: Bad Music; Unnecessary Extra Speeds WEAK MOTOR

    Summary: When friends of ours first gave us this swing we thought "that will be a fun little toy", but we have since learned that the swing is no toy but rather an essential parent survival tool. We have no idea how cave people got by without one of these. We ... read more

  • Not a Reliable Model

    Jun 23, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Music, various speeds
    Cons: It broke

    Summary: my wife got this swing at a baby shower. At first, we liked it, and our baby seemed to sleep well in it. But after about 2-3 months, it just stopped working. We had been using rechargeable batteries, so we thought the batteries might be faulty, and we ... read more

    Pros: My baby is temporarily distracted.
    Cons: Seat cover falling apart after just 3 years, very expensive charge to replace it

    Summary: I received a swing just 3 years ago. I rarely used the swing, and never even washed the seat cover. However, the seat cover backing is deteriorating and shedding all over the house. GRACO Customer Service is charging $19.00 for a replacement ... read more

    Pros: I thought the swing was cost effective. The baby loved it.
    Cons: concerned about safety issues

    Summary: Maybe my baby loved it a little too much! At the age of five months my husband went and put him in it this morning and the left side plastic round piece that the swing bar is attached to broke loose and the seat went sideways to the floor and the baby ... read more

  • A moment of freedom!

    Jan 17, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Open top makes it so easy!
    Cons: He cries when I take him out! Toy bar gets ignored.

    Summary: This swing has been a blessing for myself and my husband. Our son is a sweetheart, but when he's cranky, he's VERY cranky. Then, we put him in the swing and he's suddenly an angel again. The swing was ignored for the first couple months, however. He was ... read more

    Jan 8, 2003 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The colors of the swing really blends in with furniture. Sturdy construction.
    Cons: None

    Summary: We absolutely love this swing. In the five months that we have been using it, we only needed to replace the batteries once. The frame is real sturdy. A great feature of this swing is the 6 choices of speed. The Graco Euro is in beige/brown cloth, with a ... read more

    Pros: Wonderful timer to control the length of swing.
    Cons: Awful clicking noise as swing swings.

    Summary: This swing is great! It has amazing settings, from slow to fast. The fussy baby quickly becomes content and sleepy in this swing. Unfortunatly, it does make a clicking mechanincal noise with each swing. It has an easy slip off cover that can wash ... read more

  • Goes a Long Way on D batteries

    Jul 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: timer; 6 speeds; musical tunes
    Cons: takes up a lot of floor space

    Summary: For 4 D batteries, you get over 200 hours of swing time, which is AMAZING. This swing is well-built and nice looking, so it won't look tacky in your living room. It comes unassembled, but the instructions are good and I put it together myself quickly. ... read more

  • BETTER CHOICE THAN THE 2-SPEED

    Jul 5, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: 6 speeds, timer, music
    Cons: a little hard to move around even though it IS portable

    Summary: I was debating using a 2-speed vs 6-speed just because of the cost factor, but I never really had to make a choice since I received Graco's 2-speed swing before my son was born. When I finally used it, he didn't seem to like it unless he was REALLY ... read more

    Pros: Easy loading, smooth action.
    Cons: No 5 point harness.

    Summary: This is my third baby but my first swing and how I wish I'd discovered them before now. There's nothing worse then when you've feed, changed, bathed and cuddled baby but he still cries and you really have run out of ideas! Enter the Graco 6 speed swing. ... read more

    Pros: open top easy to use
    Cons: fell apart

    Summary: I was using a brand new swing when all of a sudden it fell apart!! I mean really fell apart and not because it was assembled wrong, a factory assembled part actually detached itself. This caused my 3 month old son to be violently awoken from his nap. ... read more

  • Graco 6-Speed Swing: some assembly required

    Apr 13, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: open top, six speeds, quiet motor, built in music, reclines
    Cons: assembly instructions

    Summary: Why a review on a Graco swing? While most reviews have dealt with features and likes and dislikes I thought about writing this one for the past couple of weeks and (obviously) came down on the side of "if you write it you'll be glad". (I was ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Open top, Reclining seat (for infants), Changeable toys, Battery operated
    Cons: Battery operated, low speeds don't work well on soft carpet, belt hard to adjust

    Summary: I wish I had read reviews on swings before I went and purchased one. I could have saved myself time and effort, coming home with my Graco gentle choice 6-speed swing instead of something inferior. My 1 month old daughter loves this swing. ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Open top makes it easy to get child in and out.
    Cons: Runs through batteries, Doesn't work well, music is loud, little difference between speeds.

    Summary: I didn't want a swing. I thought that if you used a swing it meant that you didn't want to hold your baby. I learned, however, that sometimes, the swing is just what your baby wants. But don't buy this one! After only 10 hours of use, my swing died. ... read more

    Pros: 6 speeds, reclines, music, toys
    Cons: poor snapping tray design

    Summary: We enjoy this swing. Baby will swing for up to an hour at times. She enjoys playing with the toys on the tray. The tray is poorly designed and must be snapped on very accurately or will pop off. I spend more time with the swing messing with this ... read more

    Pros: 6 SPEEDS, RECLINED POSITIONS, EASY TO FOLD UP AND PUT AWAY
    Cons: THE PLASTIC FEET HAVE A TENDENCY TO COME OFF.

    Summary: The Graco swing is very easy to use. Push a button, and it starts working. The music entertains the baby and the swinging puts her to sleep. When my daughter was 7 weeks old, she had a little touch of colic. When I put her in the swing at ... read more

    Pros: Baby's head no longer a target for the crossbar!
    Cons: a bit pricey

    Summary: My wife and I welcomed our little boy home in early February. My parents, trying to lessen the economical burden on us, purchased us a slightly-used crank-type baby swing at a garage sale. We were grateful and thought that we'd saved a bunch of money. ... read more
