Doesn't live up to expectations
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
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
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!
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.
A must have item!
I was given this rocker as a gift and initially didn't think we would use it much as we had a baby swing as well. How wrong I was. This rocker was wonderful for my newborn for day naps with the vibrations on. As he grew, the hanging mobile (which is removable) provided great entertainment. Initially he would just look at the mobile but then titis aided his development to reach and grab. As he got bigger again, we positioned the rocker slightly higher to make more upright and again my little one still enjoyed playing in it. The rocker moves arou...nd our house, inside and out and is so handy to put baby in while I am needing to get a few things done. I would thoroughly recommend to any new parent. Not just a standard rocker for newborns. I love that you can get so much use from the one item.
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
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!
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
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
Sanity saver for a limted time.
When baby #2 came along we found we couldn't get anything done because baby wouldn't stop crying unless he was being held, pushed in the pram or rocked. I decided to invest in a Baby swing, although i was a bit unsure of how effective it would be, especially when they are so expensive.
I could have got a cheaper model, but went for the Fisher Price Rainforest as i loved the cute design and it matched other items we had.
They are not cheap, around $160 at the time, i was fortunate to buy a floor model for around $120 which was about my budget....
Good but needs a few improvements
swing is good and works, my baby likes it especially now that he is 3 months old and can reach for the toys. First improvement is that the toys need to be on longer strings as he will never be able to reach them the way it is. Second thing, I manually swing the swing for him because even the lowest swing speed is way to fast, this also could be improved. Lastly, we bought this swing because it says it has rainforest sounds but acutally it has annoying music that has nothing to do with the rainforest. Also would be nice to be able to choose whic...h song of the 7 we would like to hear, not hear the same song first and have to listen to 5 songs each time before we get to the one we like the most. great for entertaining my baby while i get a few things done, esp now i have put longer strings on the toys needs longer strings, slower swing speed, rainforest sounds and option to select songs.
Music melody to baby's ears
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.
It has been a saviour
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
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
My Favourite product!
By far my favourite product! We got this given to us as a gift and it was the best thing! We had looked at swings while i was pregnant but i refused to pay that much and instead got a bouncer which was very good! We were then given this swing when bus was 4 weeks old and im so glad we have one now! I would definatley reccomend paying that bit more for a swing rather than a bouncer (we never use our bouncer now)
When baby is in it, the weight slows it down so it doesnt swing as fast and i actually didnt have a probelm with the speed, bubs loved...
