At first I loved my chair! I loved the fact it reclines and its so comfortable. But after being put in storage after the use of my first child I pulled it out and the material had all started to bubble on the bum and arm rests. Now just 2 months into being used again it looks like this. Absolutely atrocious considering the amount I paid for this product!
Purchased in February 2018 at Baby Bunting for $350.00.
This should recalled
when you try to stand up from lying position, it will come with you, it literally fell over my pregnant wife. The base has no weight and it turns over with you while get up
Purchased in March 2019 at Baby Kingdom for $269.00.
Pathetic excuse for material
I bought this chair in 2012 and used it for a maximum of 9 months. It was then stored in a room not being used for 4 years until we were blessed with another child. I went to use it and on the first day noticed the material had started to disintegrate. 1 week later and the material has peeled off that much it is unsellable. I had bought this item new thinking it was a good investment. I was wrong. I only wished I had researched this product prior to purchasing
You can contact Valco and they will over replacement covers at a price that is close to the original purchase price. Interesting that they should also need to sell replacment covers!
Do not buy. Chair is dangerous.
At first I thought this chair was great but after three uses it started making terrible noises when rocking. Bits of metal and eventually ball bearings fell out making the chair unusable and dangerous. The problem is the bearings can jump over the nuts on each of the joints (the nuts are too small and the design bad), destroying the bearings before separating entirely.

Poor quality, wears out within 2 months
At first we loved this chair - it was comfy & soothed baby to sleep. But within 2 months of normal use, the cheap bearings in this chair had worn so that they "clunk" with every, "glide" rousing baby instead. It can no longer be used for purpose. Don't waste your money! Or buy something better quality rather than having to spend your money twice to replace it!!
After only 3-4 months - I have the receipt, ball bearings and small Sharp metal shavings coming out of swivel bolts, recommend by something different with different swing assembly this us super dodge and going back to store. Hopefully we can get something different this time 3 more words here
It was comfortable but not reliable
Good only for the first baby
I can only say that it is satisfactory for its intended purpose. The glider has poor quality vinyl seat covers that break up over a few years. This material not only deteriorates to the point of being very unattractive but sheds tiny pieces of flyaway plastic all around the house. This is a worry for young children. Also, the glider mechanism is not concealed or protected and at the bottom, the scissor type movement could very easily hurt the fingers of a young child. The chair is not stable when fully reclined. There are no brakes or pin...s to stop movement so that when a child stands on either the chair or foot stool, they may come crashing off. The chair is very heavy and could cause damage to young children. At the cheaper end of market, smooth action Dangerous in certain situations, covers will not last (very expensive to replace), throw away like build quality.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I can see the quality of material on Valco Seville is not durable and will peel.
Does Valco, have the ability to replace the material? what is the cost to replace maaterial? (Sand)
They do, but I can't remember if it was $150 or $250 and I'm not sure if this includes the material on the arm rests. Hope this helps.
