Doesn't live up to expectations

published

This seemed like the ideal product for us but I regret my purchase. Baby doesn't mind the seat, however will often startle awake and hit her hands on the hard plastic toys, waking her up. Silly design because they cannot be removed.

Purchased in April 2019 at Target Australia for $99.00.

Swings too fast

published

I bought this swing after reading reviews thinking it was going to help settle bubs. It was the opposite.
The slowest swing setting is still too fast. I felt like she was going to get thrown out of it!
I do like the fact how easy the cover is too wash and the beautiful rainforest sounds, but other than that, nothing good to say.

Great Swing, Save your Sanity

published

This is a great swing, it will save your sanity and worth every cent. There are lots of rockers on the market which can be very expensive but this rocket is everything you need at a very reasonable price. Can be used for newborns. Don't bother getting a bouncer this is all you need. You will probably only have use of it for 6 months up until baby gets too heavy for it (Max. 11.3kgs) or baby is able climb out of it but it's worth it.

Fantastic little swing!

published

This battery powered little swing has a lot of power. The music is ordinary and the vibration is a bit strange.... But for a baby that loves to swing, this is excellent!
The music turns itself off after a while, but it keeps swinging swinging swing!
This swing apparently has one of the most comfortable seats because my baby prefers this to sit - over the larger swing, bouncer, bumbo, or high chair.

I wrote this review for the Newborn to Toddler Rainforest Rocker not the above item. Not sure why this has changed?

Great swing

published

My baby loves his swing. Have been using since he was a newborn and still using at 5 months, he loves to look up at the mobile and tries to reach the toys. Batteries seem to last a decent amount of time but found it went too fast when he was a newborn. Folds up well and can be moved around easy
Colourful, folds easy and doesn't take up too much room, batteries last a while
Swings too fast for newborn.

Okay but there are better swings available

published

I used another swing set prior to this one and have to say that I was dissapointed with this swing. My son is 3 months and likes to be able to grab hold toys hanging from above. With this, the toys (which were really cute and colourful) were too high to be able to reach. I also did not like the angles of the seat. It seams that you can alter the heights but the more seated position did not lock in for me. Unfortunately my son's time was shortened greatly in this swing. He lasted 10mins max, while in the other swing he would last 20-30mins.
colours and animals/print
toys not reachable, seat on awkward angle.

Put my boy to sleep!

published

Love this swing, easy to pack up, move around and is light weight. The swinging motion puts my boy to sleep with ease and also has great soft tunes to fall asleep to. My boy is big and heavy and we need to use the fastest speed for it to move him well so wont last him much longer unfortunately but great investment. The seat is a great size and a good shape to hold him in nice and snug (like he is being cuddled)
The shape, colour, easy to pack up to take with you also for packing away, the music is good too
The fastest speed is almost not strong enough to swing my boy

Love it!! couldn't live without it

published

Loved it!!!!! My bought this for my newborn and put him in it from 8 weeks onwards. It was very handy for when i needed to cook tea or hang washing as he loved to be held and rocked. I think i nearly cried when he grew out of it. I will defently be using it for our next one.
Inexpensive, Colourful, Lullaby music and 5 speeds

Music melody to baby's ears

published

This fisher price rainforest swing is good because it has five speed, seven songs, and its portable. My little girl loves the slow speed,and calming music, where as if you had a heavier baby you would put the higher speed on. I use it for when i'm cooking and don't have hands to hold her. Its great tool to soothe my baby with music in the living room where i can keep a close eye on her. The toys that hangs above the swing is a really good distraction and gives them something to focus on.
Reliable swing
Abit expensive

It has been a saviour

published

Has helped settle bubs from time-to-time. I didn't use it at first because it would go too fast for him and I don't think he liked it very much but as he put on weight it was better and it helped settle him and get him to sleep. It is a little bulky so it wasn't something I took anywhere. It would be better if they actually had rainforest music as an option.
Didn't have to change the batteries. Good for soothing a grumpy baby.
The music certainly isn't the best.

Not as compact as the title would suggest

published

I thought this was OK but didn't use it a lot. My baby didn't like it much so it was only useful when she was sleepy but wouldn't go to sleep - it would lull her into what looked like a kind a of trance. Still, a lot of people swear by swings so I think my feelings about it have more to do with my baby than the product itself.
Looks nice; the music isn't too loud; sometimes bubs would fall asleep in it if she had a dummy; deep seat so it didn't feel as though she was going to roll out when she got a bit older
Expensive; the music gets annoying after a while; when folded it's still pretty chunky so I can't imagine actually "taking it along"; only has a three point harness

I am finding now my baby is 4 months old he is more comfortable to stay in this swing, he has more weight which keeps it at a slower pace, I've never gone on more than the lowest setting. I think that needs reviewing.
The product looks great, quite sturdy and folds nicely so it becomes portable. The mobile attachment can really grab my sons attention for a while.
The lowest setting is still far too fast. I had a little 6lb baby and it use to go way to fast for him. I would have to prop a cusion under it to slow it's speed. Is quite expensive, a bargain if you can get it on sale.

OK

published

This has been a very useful item to keep baby amused. She loves watching the toys as she swings and usually falls asleep after not too long. I have to keep it on low though as the seat is not particularly supportive for small babies and she tends to slide sideways and slump over. I have to keep an eye on her in case this happens. It is quite bulky although it does fold for storage and transportation.
Keeps baby amused while mum gets on with other things
Not great for new babies because they tend to slide sideways and slump over. Quite bulky but does fold a bit for storage or transportation although even folded its quite large. Music is very irritating after any length of time

The strongest point that I feel about this product is that it is so plasticky for something so expensive. It is quite sturdy and safe, however the metal frames do wobble a little bit. It just screams out 'made in China'.
It is good, however, for bub to sit in while mum is cooking or cleaning or having dinner.
I have a bit of a clingy baby and until he was 3 mo he refused to sleep on his own during the day, however placed in the swing he would nap for 30 minutes which gave me extra time.
I alternate with the bouncer to give him variety.
Great mobility and folds away easily.
Great to amuse bub for mum's much needed time-out. Folds away easily and can be taken places.
Way too overpriced for the quality.

This is a great swing it keeps my baby im emused, and rocks her to sleep most of the time, hence the boring music. The only bad thing are the toys that hang to high. My baby trys to sit up and reach out to them and cant. The Rainforest tree swing is easy enough to esemble and It hangs low to the ground. Its convinient to take out to friends or families houses it folds up easy and packs away easy in the boot of the car. The carry along swing is resanoably priced and I would definatley recommend it.
Easy to put together, nice eye catching design, its convienient and folds up to take away.
Toys are hanging up to high, the music is boring.
