    Some babies seem to take to rockers, some don’t...so it was a bit of an expensive gamble to she if my little one would like this.

    I had heard a few parents swear by them, that they entertained their little one for hours, or that they magically rock them to sleep. Unfortunately, she wasn’t overly impressed :)
    Maybe she was too young at only a few weeks old. It was very difficult to position her so that she didn’t slump head to chest. As she’s grown a bit, that is getting better and she is starting to get a little more interested in the hanging toys.

    It doesn’t seem to be something she finds easy to fall asleep in, but maybe this is a good thing as they are not designed for this.

    I use it to entertain her for a little while so I can get ready in the morning and it works in a fashion. Will keep her busy for a little while most mornings.

    Hopefully as she grows, she will grow to love it.

    My sister swears by hers, all three of her kids loved it, so probably worth putting on your baby list!

    Our favourite, my little ones loved the music and i specially like that you can set the swing how fast to swing the baby. It is very nicely designed product, we would not choose any other swing

    Found this to be a nice swing chair although my newborn could have done with a bit more cushioning as the head was not as supported as I’d have liked if she fell asleep her head rested on her chest which could have restricted her breathing, where as when baby gets a bit older they fit in it more comfortably and I was happy if she fell asleep in it. Liked the fact it could fold up to save space, the various swing speeds and the lullaby.

    I use this everyday after our morning feed while I get ready for the day. It soothes baby, and he often takes a little nap. It’s great with so many different seat options, three timer options and volume options, as well as lots of speed options! I wouldn’t be able to get washed and dressed without this everyday! It also folds up in half for easy storage too. I can’t fault this product at all. One of our best purchases.

    Had this swing chair for my son. He enjoyed it from the first time in it. The melody’s kept him happy. Comfy for him, he got plenty of use out of t before outgrowing it.

    This is a lovely little product. You can put your baby in it and it will be content with the soft sounds of the music playing, and the movement of the swing.

    We were gifted this (second hand) by a friend when her little one was done with it so I can't really comment on the price too much, mainly because I wouldn't pay this much however I do think it is brilliant & if I could afford to pay this amount I would consider it. The different settings are brilliant, generally I use the low to medium settings but if my little girl is really unsettled then I use the highest setting. The music has two volume settings which is really handy. It also has a timer of 15, 30 & 45 minutes. I honestly can't fault this product. We used a bouncer before hand & didn't find it as good as this.

    Although it's for a short period of time my little one is not interested in this at all. I have two friends with the same one and they don't rate it either. I think for the price its expensive, the vibration is a bit much and the music gets quite irritating. It's actually quite difficult to bounce too. I think it's a bit expensive for what the product offers.

    This product has been a lifesaver for us! My daughter has loved sitting in her swing from when she was a newborn and that's given me the jmento shower and eat, I couldn't have done without it! You can have this swing on a slow gentle speed to a faster speed, which I personally didn't use, and it plays soothing music. You can fasten your baby into the seat so you know they're safe and don't have to hover over them. This was one of the more expensive swinging chairs but was definitely worth the money. The only negative is I could only use it for about three months as the maximum weight limit it quite low.

    Used this product with my daughter from when she was around 3 months for around a month. She didn’t like it at all, the rocking motion that you can set was not very strong at all, even when on the highest setting. I changed the batteries and it still didn’t increase.

    This is a lovely swing, it has a timer that you can set or have continuous swing. After a while it has automatic shut off which is good as saves the battery. Seems comfortable and easy to use. Various speeds of swinging action.

    I brought this swing for my son as my first born little boy loved his swing!
    My second son is just the same, when he is having his angry spell, we place him in this swing and turn it on and he becomes calm and happy.
    It even sends him to sleep.
    He loves it on the fastest setting but it has so many speeds that we can turn it down when he calms down so he is on the slowest speed.
    I love how padded it is, he did look lost in it to start with so we put him some extra padding for more support but it isn’t needed
    It was just my own personal choice.

    I bought this 3.5 years ago for my first born. I wanted something neutral and not garish like other chairs / swings you see. The product was easy to set up easy to use and my little one loved it. It was well priced, easy to wash and looks brand new after a wash. It does fold up which is a plus point.
    Negatives: the melodies it plays are very ‘tinny’ I hated putting it on however it soothed my baby and that’s what counts!
    3.5 years later baby number 2 makes an appearance and he loves it just as much and even better it’s so easy to use that if he cries my 3.5 year old runs over and will put it on for me so goes to show how easy it is to use! Thumbs up!

    I love this baby swing. When I first brought my baby home and put him in the chair I found that the seating was too upright for him and he ended up being quite squashed up. As he got bigger he fit in the chair a lot better and now he loves it. It’s perfect for when he’s awake and when he’s going to sleep as the swing setting is perfectly for helping him nod off. I would absolutely recommend this but maybe when your baby is a few weeks old.

    It's quite big but it is a very easy to use swing and has multiple music and sounds.

    Bought this for my son when he was 3months old. I really struggled to get him to nap and my sister suggest a swing. I was drawn to this one as the colours are very calming.
    My son was very comfortable in it and very safe with the 5 point harness. The 5 point harness is a bit of a pain when baby is already asleep and you are trying to ninja them in.
    The music is very nice and makes for good background noise.
    The swing its self isn't very powerful, defiantly aimed at younger babies who prefer a soothing swing rather then aggressive rock. The timer is a blessing and a curse. The rare times my son would sleep passed the timer he would wake up as the swinging stopped.
    The toys on the bar didn't interest him very much, I see that as a bonus. The toys are just high enough to make his eyes tired without over stimulating him.
    Overall this is a wonderful swing. It folds up very nicely and it gave me some precious time to get some shores done. Defiantly worth buying is you have a fussy napper.

    We bought this product for my newborn son. It was easy to set up, and we started to use it within 20 minutes of opening the box and setting it up. The design is really lovely and simple, but still very cute and the hanging toys fit well within the design. It has an easy push button mechanism to fold it up so it can be stored stood up quite easily. The seat itself is like a standard bucket seat where the baby can sink down comfortably. My only issue with the seat is that on the more seated upright position, there is no lock to keep it upright and I find it is quite easy for the back rest part to fall back down to the newborn reclining position. It’s easy to strap baby in for safety and to adjust the straps, and comes with a head support cushion for newborns which is easily detached and I use it for other things too like when I change his nappy or in the pram! It has a few different songs to choose from and quite a lot of different speed options which is controlled with a dial on the side, a long with a handy timer so you can set it to go for 15, 30 or 45 minutes. Although the toys are sweet and well made, I don’t find them very engaging or bright enough and my son isn’t too interested in them, but that’s not a fault of the product. All in all I am impressed with the quality and sturdiness of this and the price is reasonable and on par with similar products in the market. Would definitely recommend, especially for people who don’t want overly bright coloured baby items in their home, but would be careful if your baby suffers with reflux as I don’t find the urpright position upright enough and my son did spit up sometimes when I put him down in it.

    This is definitely something I recommend to all new parents; a must buy!! You can securely strap your little bundle in and they are kept amused by the dangling animals and calm with the steady rocking motion of the swing!! My little boy fell asleep in this swing numerous times he was that relaxed!! You also have the option of changing the speed of the rocking motion! I can’t find any negatives to this product; it honestly was well worth the money spent!!

    Love this swing and actually miss it now little one is too big for it. It actually lasted her quite a while because she was small. It's soft, easy to clean, the animals are engaging and the music is soothing. My only criticism with it is that some of the higher swing settings are really fast which is a bit scary, especially with a tiny baby like mine was. Other than that it was definitely one of the most useful things we bought.

    Absolutely love this swing! My daughter spends hours in her swing, it is comfortable, entertaining and soothing. I lile how this swing has a small head rest as the one i had for my son didn't have this. It has many different speed settling so is great to use from early age and lasts till she's getting about. The music sends her to sleep within minutes! Easy to clean! Highly recommend! Very happy with this product.
