  • Excellent swing!

    5 stars

    4/8/2015 by Avanzi

    I've had it for both my children and it does help with having a place they can sit and swing and sometimes fall asleep while mommy/daddy do other things. Funny thing about the motor, to me it now seems to have been a synchronization issue than failure. The swing was having issues getting started when I first got it so Graco was nice enough to send me two motors. It seemed to work but it wasn't swinging. In any case, I had left the first motor in and it ended up working fine to this day 4 years after I bought it.

    We used this for five months with our last baby. We got it back out for baby#2, used it for three days, and the plug just stopped working. Now we have to power it with batteries which it drains in no time.

    This swing really is great, my baby constantly wants rocked so when she is in this on setting 6 and the music playing she falls asleep everytime.. Lovely little swing. Only downfall it should be electronic instead of battery powered eats the batteries very quick :)

  • The PERFECT swing!

    Love, love love it - the seat reclines for different needs, the tray is removable(we've never used it), and the padding is just right for tiny babies & easily removable for bigger babies. But of course, the best bit is that it plugs in! We've been using this swing for a year and have had absolutely no trouble with the motor (and our kiddo is 26 pounds, so I'm sure it's working hard).

    Thank God I was able to find this swing because I don't trust these new swings because they aren't sturdy as you think they are the price. I'd rather pay for this swing than the new ones.

    I recvd this swing at my baby shower, and it was a complete life savor ! I wish it could hold more weight because my son is a big baby weighing about 25lbs now but he doesnt fit in it anymore. I most def recommend this swing for other moms ! I never had an issue with the motor stopping or anything, the only thing I had wrong was even with batteries I still needed to have it plugged in.

    I originally bought this swing for my day care and when I got pregnant used it for my oldest daughter its been a total life saver every baby I have placed in this swing has instantly fallen in love with it! here I am 4 years later buying it again because we wore out the motor on it from so much use it has been though abuse from my daycare it ran almost 24/7 for the entire time we had it. and considering it just now broke down id say its very durable!

    I initially bought my daughter a portable swing and I ended up returning it, at max speed it barely swung my 9 pound baby. I started to look around for a full size swing that was easy to store and didn't take a lot of space. I received this swing within three days of ordering it, which I loved. Putting it together took me about 30 minutes and it was easy. The design and colors on this swing are beautiful. My daughter has been a fussy baby from birth and I had to carry all the time. As soon as I put her on the swing she loved it! Giving more time to do my chores around the house. The mobile on the top entertains her every time. The AC connection is great because she spends a lot time on the swing, saving my money on batteries. She currently weighs 12 pounds, I put it in speed 2 and it's perfect. I love this swing and would definitely buy it again, it has giving me some sanity back.

  • Great swing, great value.

    1/19/2014 by cloverbaby78 from San Diego, Ca.

    This is a great buy. Especially if you have bigger/older baby. My 8 month old daughter will only sleep n her swing, and got to big for 1st swing. I looked at this & a Fisher Price swing, bought Fisher Price first (cost $ 40 more). Didn't like it at all. Was not sturdy, seemed unsafe so Returned it. Got this one & LOVE IT! Love fact that it plugs in, never have to worry about running out of batteries in middle of night again. Only negative is wish it had toys on the tray. If you are tryig to decide between this & another swing gwith this, wont ble disappointed.

    Assembly was pretty easy. But once I got it together I was disappointed to see that it did not swing. The motor does not work. The music played just fine but what's the point of a swing that doesn't actually swing. I contacted graco and informed them of the issue. I've been told another motor will be sent to me. So now I'm waiting on a new motor in hopes that the new one will work.

    I just received the swing a couple of days ago. I lived the design and was in anticipation to have my little one enjoy it's features. But the swing does not swing at plays the music but that's about it. I called the 1800 number and was told I would receive another motor so now I'm waiting hoping the new motor will work.

    1/11/2014 by Lolitalia

    In the course of 6 months i have been given two of these. One i got at my baby shower and one a few months later after the first one straight up died. Both New in unopened in package but bought a few years ago so out of warranty. And both died with in a month of using them. I didn't use them a lot, And both had a snapping sound in the motor before dieing. One died so bad the sound didn't play while the other played music. I thought Graco was a grate brand but after going threw two swings all ready it has made me think other wise. Other then the fact that two of these i had died i LOVED them before the stopped working. Plus the print is way to cute.

  • Bad Motor right out of the box

    2 stars

    1/7/2014 by Mandy123789 from Maine

    So we bought this swing despite the bad reviews about the motor being bad. We were hoping we wouldn't have a problem and sure enough, right out of the box the motor for the swing didn't work. Also this says up to 30 lbs. My daughter is about 17 lbs and I can barely get the shoulder straps around her and they're completely extended. We really wanted something that could grow with her as it says this product is good up to 18 months and our daughter is only 4 months now. We contacted Graco and they are sending out a new motor. In my opinion this company needs to seriously address this issue before continuing this line. It' obvious problem. They said they test all the motor before they ship them out but I can't believe that is true with so many people having a problem with this product.

  • Decent swing

    I have a 5 month old and she absolutely loves her swing she plays with it and falls asleep in tit. I like the different sppeds because I was able to use it when she was a newborn. The only problem I have with is that she's so wrong now she keeps pulling out the hand toy in the little tray. Other than that I highly recommend this swing.

    This swing was pretty spendy at the store but hasn't let me down. I have used it for 2 of my 3 kids after my battery operated one died and couldn't be fixed after very little use. So I tried this one and loved it! Uses batteries while on the go or plugs in at home. No more making a weekly trip to the store for swing batteries. Would definitely reccomend! And just ignore the negative comments about the tray. My kids had no problem at all with it! Great product!

  • Nice swing, love the power ac adapter

    3 stars

    9/30/2013 by catlover7171 from taunton, ma

    This swing is nice. It runs on ac power which is nice. what I don't like about it is that it has a tray which I removed which doesnt really add any value. It is just in the way and makes it awkward to put the baby in and out of the swing. It isnt needed by an infant that small. The music on it and sounds are somewhat disappointing. They dont sound very good and I often dont use the sounds only the swing.

  • Very cute but Poor product

    My fiance & I bought this product the end of June had our daughter the beginning of July. We brought her home placed her in the swing and it seemed to have problems swinging . I exchanged it for a new swing when I received the product it had the same problem. I will never buy another swing like this. It's made very poorly. The positive side is the pattern its in. Very cute! If i could have that pattern with a different motor i'd LOVE it!

    I purchased the swing when I was still pregnant. It was one thing on my list that I had to have. A swing was my lifesaver with my other two children. I loved the fact that it could be plugged in. The music and the swinging puts my little girl right to sleep. She is now old enough to use the toy bar. She likes to move the circles back and forth. Again the swing has not failed me. This one is better than the last one I had because I don't have to replace the batteries. The seat seems pretty comfy and I like that it has three reclining options. She can play or I can recline the seat for a little nap.

    9/10/2013 by JasMommy1313 from Greenville, MS

    We ordered this swing in the end of June and didn't take it out of the box until one week before I had my daughter in July. When we put her in the swing it would swing for about 10 minutes and then stop swinging. We could put it on #4 and it would move slower than on #1. The motor isn't good at all. We returned the swing for another and this "new" on is acting up as well. I wouldn't recommend this swing at all. Now for the "theme" and seat I absolutely love it! just not the "motor & swinging issues"

We added two more so we would have enough for our triplets. I would definitely buy a graco swing again and recommend to friends and family!

    After one child and going through several D batteries I begin looking for a plugin type of swing. I stumbled across this one at Target & had to purchase it! The only thing I wish about this swing is that I wish it was more of a cradle shape. My daughter prefers to be cradled more like my so did. Other then that GREAT PRODUCT!

    4 stars

    8/15/2013 by KateB

    We rely heavily on this swing!! We bought it when my daughter was 5 days old and at 10 months we still use it at nap time and some evenings. The only problem has been the motor, which was quickly replaced all 3 times by the company. The fabulous response to my need for a replacement was more than I expected. If a product is going to have flaws it's best to deal with a company who puts your satisfaction first, so for that I am grateful! BUT... it does stink that the motor and subsequent motors have all died within less than 2 months of use :-( Hopefully they have gotten those kinks squared away by now.

    I bought this swing because I wanted to save money on batteries. I do not believe this swing ran off electricity at all though because I had to replace the batteries every month or so. I also had to purchase a new motor as the one it came with burned out over a few months. The new motor only lasted three months before it burned out as well.

    My wife and I received this swing as a gift from a family member when our fourth son was born. We have thoroughly been convinced that this is a must in every home! If we could do it all over, we would have bought one sooner! Our last two children have enjoyed it tremendously and we don't feel so bad about leaving them in it while we are working! It is safe, entertaining for the child and over all...fantastic!!!

    8/15/2013 by Nonny

    My little guy has 3 different styles and brands of swings, but this is the only one he will use. I think the way it cradles him makes him feel like he's being held. I love the 5 point harness, because he started rolling over in his other swings and this prevents him from doing that. The different speed options are great too. He likes to go faster when he is awake and playing and we switch it to a lower speed to gently lull him to sleep. I just love everything about it, and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

    7/25/2013 by ADS6

    My 4 month loves this swing! Uses it several times a day & takes all his daytime naps in it! When he was a newborn it was a life saver as it was so soothing to him he immediately stopped crying & fussing when we put him in it. I like that it swings back & forth some of the modern swings go side to side which isnt really a swing & it is not as soothing to a baby. Only complaint that I have is that if we swing it at a speed lower than 4 it does squeak quite a bit, it is not a real problem for us since we have never used the lower speeds but it may be an issue for others. The music & sounds are a bit odd for us adults but somehow they worked for my son, he is immediately soothed & typically falls asleep in about 10 mins.

  • Assembly Issues

    1 stars

    7/4/2013 by osas

    Well, i believe assembling a swing should not be a rocket science, but my experience with this product so far has been distasteful. First, all the various parts are not distinctly named, thereby making it difficult to figure out which is which.Secondly, the manual had to be downloaded and its quite voluminous and to me it hardly served it purpose.Thirdly, i may be returning the product if i cant get to assemble it in the next couple of days.I called customer care and the technical support has not helped either.Personally, i got stuck on page seven of the manual because i could not get to insert the arm with something at the top on the right side.

    I had a Graco swing similar to this when I had my first baby 7 years ago. The design was almost identical and I've loved it, but 4 babies later it finally broke. I use my swings heavily and babies sit in them to watch me make dinner and watch siblings play up to one year of age. I borrowed a different style swing from a friend until this one arrived at my house a week later, and I couldn't wait to get rid of the borrowed swing. The "can't live without" features of this swing include: heavy plastic bar that goes across the front of baby (swings without this that only have straps just feel so unsafe to me), the fact that the plastic bar has a one hand opening so you can be holding baby and open it with one hand, the one handed very easy recline latch, mobile above head easily adjusts so you can push it out of the way, easy push buttons that allow swing to fold up for more efficient storage and moving from room to room, cradle that swaddles baby in a perfect position (especially when baby has a cold and needs to sleep on an incline), great "white noise features", super easy to use control buttons, and BEST FEATURE EVER: the plug in option! I can't say enough about this swing. I love it so much I was willing to pay the full price even though I'm on my last baby and she is already a few months old! I wouldn't even consider other brands, or other Graco models.

    I bought this swing in 2009 for my oldest daughter. Never had 1 complaint then. I just had another baby at the end of 2012 and am using it again. 4 years after I bought it, it still runs great. I was concerned about the motor being older, but I have had no issues. Great workmanship.

    Another Graco disappointment. Used it for our newborn, who only weighed 8lbs, and after two uses the motor had died. The music plays, and the swing starts to swing on setting 3 but after 5 minutes it completely stops. The assembly also took awhile and was a little confusing at first. Spend your money on a different swing that actually works!

    The swing was awesome but after 3 months the motor went out. I contacted Customer Support though the Graco baby website and told them of the motors shot life span. They contacted me back on the same day and said "A new motor unit has been sent at no charge. Please allow ten business days." It only took 3 days for the motor to arrive. I am giving this swing a perfect review because I am blown away by Gracos Customer Support! Thank you Graco!

    I never got nor bought a swing for my baby until she was 3 months old. Wish I had this sooner! I love everything about the swing. I has an easy one handed recline button, tons of different sounds/noises and 6 great speeds. My baby loves the mobile and it will move out your way too. The material is very nice and easy to clean. The straps adjust to your baby's size. Also has a tray with food/cup holder and is removable. Well put together with durable material. But the best part about this swing is that it PLUGS INTO AN OUTLET for non-stop swinging! The video really helped me make my decision. 110% satisfied.

    This swing was a gift from my grandmother. I barely used this swing and yet the motor died after the first couple of uses. I replaced the batteries only to realize that wasn't the problem. I do not recommend anyone wasting their money on this swing. I will be purchasing another brand. When I googled the swing, the first thing I saw was a bad motor link.

    I had very good intentions on purchasing this item, but once I started building it I was upset. I tried reclining all the way back and it wouldn't work, It seems as if it had been screwed on wrong and too tight. I then used the metal bars and it wouldn't stay without going all the way back. I really did like the look of it and the fact that it had an adaptor for the wall. I'm still undecisive if I will go ahead and try reordering it again.

    My daughter was the type of baby that ALWAYS had to have movement to get to sleep. She slept in this swing at night because it was the only place she would sleep. She slept in this swing from about 6 weeks old to almost 6 months old all night. From about midnight to at least 8am. So it was VERY USED. I love that it has the option to plug into the wall because otherwise we would have spent a ridiculous amount of money on D batteries. This swing exceeded my expectations and other than the diaper genie was the best purchase of baby items made.

    Got this swing when I had my daughter. Love that you can plug it in instead of drain lots if batteries. My only qualm was with the motor. After 4 months of normal use, the motor quit. Since it was under its factory warranty, it was replaced swiftly.

    Our daughter loves this swing. She is about five weeks old, so she is just now noticing the elephants above her head, which seem to entertain her. She also has a hard time falling asleep in her bassinet, so the swing helps her to fall asleep so we can put her in her bassinet. The classical music and most of the white sound noises are soothing. There's one weird white noise sound that sounds creepy, so we choose not to use that one. Overall, we love this swing!

    This swing helped me accomplish more during naptimes. He was secure and the music/sounds helped soothe him. My baby was a mover from the start so he loved the different speeds. Now that he is a little but older he crawls to it and enjoys being put in it for the fun of the swinging.

    If you choose this product, ask your shower guests to give you lots of D batteries, because this swing uses them up like they are going out of style. I gave up trying to keep our swing operative and now just use it as a stationary seat for my baby to sleep. Do the wise thing and go with a model that give you a plug in option.

    We used this for our daughter for over a year, mostly during the later part of her first year. It has a timer and speed setting and has music and sound with volume control. It was only when I got a new swing for our second child that I noticed how loud this swing was. It clicks when it swings, but you really get used to it. The only con to this swing is that it is SO bulky! It takes up almost as much space as our crib!

    This swing is a complete waste of money. It will eventually after 2-3 months just stop swinging. I put brand new batteries in my sons swing and put it on speef 2 and it wont budge, so i tried other speeds and still nothing. The only thing still working properly on it is the sound of whats supposed to be water but just sounds like annoying static. The melodies are to upbeat and thor nature sounds sound so unrealistic. Save your money!!

    12/12/2012 by Shelly

    I loved the swing, it worked fine, my son enjoyed it and was very comfortable. I used it all the time with out the music playing. But when I actually tried the music system out it was horirible! It scared my son right out if his sleep. The songs played and the tunes were great but there was a terrible scratching roarinf sound it let off as it got to certain parts in songs. I has to use the music system from his playard if I wanted him to hear somethin soothing. I emailed and called graco many times asking for help, but no one assissted me. Unfortunately I purchased the set in the states because it was a lot cheaper and I couldn't return it. If all the swings have horrible music I would recommend to everyone not to buy, but from what I heard and read in reviews it was my bad luck. Great swing overall though did its job very well

    I bought this swing for my daughter to help her fall asleep at night and she absolutely loves it!! The lullaby's are great and with two different volume settings we can cancel out the background noise which helps her sleep a little longer. It's very sturdy and machine washable. I also love the fact that it plugs in. No need to keep buying batteries. Great purchase, highly recommend it.

  • Motor dying

    3 stars

    10/5/2012 by An anonymous customer

    I received this swing off my registry 2 months ago. My baby is 7 weeks old now and the motor is dying. The speed settings are 1-6. We never used it on one because it barely moved and the motor sounded like it had a hard time. Initially we found that 3 was a good relaxing speed. We moved up to, we have to put it on 6 to get the swing to move the way it used to when it was on 3. It wasn't until after I started using the swing that I read other reviews on this product and found that the motor was a common problem. I Always gave the swing a little push to help it get have to. Other reviews stated that they contacted Graco and got a new motor. I have contacted the company with the hope that a new motor won't die just as fast. I WOULD NOT recommend this product.

    This is a beautiful, durable swing. But if you buy it, make sure you stock up on batteries! The swing takes 3 D batteries, and the vibration on the seat takes C batteries. This swing goes through batteries really fast. But it's worth it regardless of the inconvenience.

    If you have this swing at home and you still have the box, I would return it to the store before it breaks. It was expensive and it has been impossible to fix, and chances are that yours will break too... My son was born in December and the swing stopped working in March. I called Graco to get replacement parts and it is now June and the swing still isn't functioning. Buy this product at your own risk and do not think that you can let your baby get comfortable napping in the swing because you won't be able to get Graco to fix this swing quickly if it breaks. Here's my story: Graco made all sorts of promises that they would send parts and it would work but nothing has been honest - and according to them this never happens, but often it takes 20 min to speak with a rep due to high calling volume... so they are seeming pretty busy to me. They have been back order on these motors for the plug in swing because the chip for the control panel fails and then they make a farce of sending out other parts not admitting that this is bad product. *** Do not buy the Brown model. Despite my having the original warranty documents, they sent me a motor for the battery only swing and pretended to be surprised when called saying the swing still didn't work when plugged in. Then they sent a plug, and then another motor (for the battery only option) and a pole. They can't say that sending the wrong motor was because they didn't know my model had a plug, because they have also sent me the plug and pole... So to date they have sent 4 shipments of parts and weeks of waiting and I have had to waste time calling them over and over again. They are now sending me a third motor but in the wrong color. I asked for coupons or to speak to a manager (come on, it has been over 3 months and 4 shipments...) but they said that it wasn't their policy. So I told them I would tell you guys... as it's the only thing I can do.

    I bought this NEW at Walmart in Bremerton Wa. It was the last one and on sale! It was so pretty and just what we were looking for. Got it home, Husband put it together. Songs are great only problem is the swing motor doesn't work. Then I see the one we have (Carina collection) is no longer being made and they no longer have replacement motors. I just don't understand how all the reviews on the same model swing (different colors same parts) saying how the motor breaks so fast (or in our case broke before we got home) how come Graco isn't doing anything to fix this issue?

  • Awesome Swing - Must have patience to assemble

    4 stars

    4/10/2012 by Mommyof2kidos from Houston, TX

    The swings now days seem to be a one child and done thing. They do not really last for more than one any more. We bought a Graco Silhouette swing when we had my son who is now 3 1/2. We used it every day and worked well till about 4 months old and it started squeaking like crazy. It is so annoying and there is no way to fix it. I read that the motors in the Graco swings go out frequently, but the company will send you a new one if you call. The biggest selling point with this swing is that you can plug it in. It's a real money saver. We spent soooo much money on battery's the 1st time around that we could have bought another swing. This swing is quite complicated to assemble. My husband was a homebuilder (project manager) spent a pretty long time assembling this swing. Graco is not descriptive with the directions. The parts should be numbered or something because it's a bit of a challenge and you end up using process of elimination to find the correct part. It should not be that hard. There weren’t even any directions on the mobile part of the wing. Once assembled the swing looks and works perfectly. Just pack your patience when you open the box. Good Luck!!

    I am very disappointed in this swing. My daughter is not even 5 months old yet and the vibrator on this swing has stopped working. My daughter use to love this swing but without the vibrator it's pretty worthless to us now. The $160 bucks spent on this is down the drain. I am very dissatisfied with the quality of the vibrator to stop working so soon.

    We've had this swing for a year and it still works great!!!! No problems whatsoever--not with the motor, no squeaking, no nothing--it works as good as it did on day 1. Considering how much we used this, even the battery life exceeded my expectations. This was the only place the baby would nap for the first 7 months of his life. I honestly don't know what I would have done without my Graco Lovin' Hug Infant Swing. I highly recommend it!

    I disagree with all the reviews of this swing. I have had no trouble with the motor at all. We bought this swing for my daughter for Christmas and she still loves it...5 months old, 18lbs, 8oz. We have only had to change the batteries once and we use it just about every day. The pattern is lovely and goes well with most neutral decor. A little expensive, but it should last longer than most swings with the weight rating of 30lbs.

    I picked this swing after months and a few returns of other swings I have tried out for my 20 pound 8 month old daughter. This swing ( I was told) should last and is better for bigger babies. I dont' have a problem with the miblie like I read in other reviews. IT's within my daughts line of vision and it stays over her. I love that it plugs in and I'm not buying batteries all the time anymore. It is a loud swing. there is a clicking sound almost the whole time the swing is on. The nauture sounds are quite loud and you can't turn them as low as you can the music. Doens't bother my daughter, neother does the clicking. I have found ALL swing click after your child is over about 10 pounds. The swing looks like it would be good for a little baby as well. I havent' put the tray on, as I think it would just get int he way. I have read things saying it's loud when it clicks into place and that you have to watch the babies fingers # umm common sense# We use the swing for nap time. I love the easy one hand seat adjustment! There is no way I could put this swing in the bed room, it's loud. But for 99 bucks, the open top and the plug in feature I love it. I do prefer the fisher price craddle and swing swings, but my aquarium swing # 6 years old# is eatting batteries and my daughter our grew the my little lamb. again the only bad thing I have to say about this swing so far is that it clicks and the motor is a bit noisy.

    I purchased this swing in June of this year. I had done some investigating on this product and I had read in several places that this specific swing does have a problem with the motor going out. I bought it anyway, so when it started messing up I wasn't surprised. Mine hasn't completly gone out yet. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. BUT, the motor has a 1 year warrenty on it. So all you have to do is call the 800 number on this website and they will send you a new one NO CHARGE!!! Yes, it is an inconvience and yes, it should have been fixed, but I LOVE this swing and I am still happy with it and the costumer sevice was great!

    My husband and I purchased this swing for our daughter before she was born, this March 4th.. We wanted a gender-neutral swing for future children.. The most important reason why we chose this one is because it comes with an AC adapter, not just battery operated. My daughter absolutely LOVES this swing, she is 9 months now and has used it basically everyday since we brought her home.. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone interested in purchasing a HIGH QUALITY PRODUCT. By the way- the mobile isn't mechanical, you wind it by hand and in fact you don't need to because it moves with the motion of the swing itself, consumers should PROBABLY read the owner's manual- thats why they include it with a product that is purchased ;]

    While my child is six months old now she has not yet met the weight limit for the swing. I had a Graco swing for my two older children and never had a problem of this sort. When the swing is turned on now you can hear the motor working and it will swing for about 30 seconds, after that you can see the arm mechanism move in and out of place. I have read other reviews on this product and it is apparantly a problem with the design. Is there a replacement part that can be bought and if so please dont say it's gonna cost half of what I paid for the swing since it was through no fault of my own that it quit working.

    I bought this swing 4 months ago. My daughter loves it but over the weekend I unpluged it to move it to another room and then plugged it back in and it just quit working. The motor sounds like it is working but the swing will not swing. I have done some research on this problem and it seems to me this is a common problem with this model. If you look at the reviews on the Walmart website there are several reviews saying the same thing. Is there a recall on this swing or a replacement part we can get? I payed $100 for something to work longer than 4 months. my daughter doesn't even way 15 pounds yet so its not like she exceeds the weight limit.

    We received this swing for a gift and have overall been happy with the product. Our only complaints are that the music volume is very loud (I wish we could turn it down a bit more), and our swing "squeeks" if the speed is greater than 2. If I push the chair back together a little bit the squeeking will stop for awhile, but it hasn't bothered my son, so we're still using the higher speeds. We just turn up the TV if it's on! Otherwise, we are very happy with the swing and our son falls asleep in it often!

    I don't understand the problems everyone has had with this swing. I have the Winnie the Pooh Nice to See You model and it's lasted through 2 kids. I've only had to change the batteries twice and I use it ALL the time. My first had colic and this swing was the only reason I had any calm for at least 3 months. The instructions that came with it were HORRIBLE! So maybe people just don't know how to use it properly?

    This swing has been great for our family! A great investment! My son loves sitting in this swing during the day. He is in it EVERY day! It has 6 speeds so when he was a newborn I just put it on speed 1 or 2 to gently rock him to sleep and it did its job wonderfully. It is soothing and really does cradle him well, especially his lil head. The safety harness is great because it makes sure he can't fall out yet, isn't so tight that I have to worry about it strangling him when he moves around. Now that he's about 5 months old I can put it up to speed 6 when he's awake and he loves it. He laughs as he stares at the elephants hanging from it! The music and sound effects are great too. When he was a newborn he liked the "beating heart" and "ocean" sound effects and then started to like the music. Sadly, the sounds all stopped working on it (which is why I gave it a 4 star rating). However, I called Graco Customer Service and they were very nice and courteous about getting it fixed. They asked me some simple routine questions about the product such as model number and manufacture date and then asked when I bought the product. They took down my info and then sent me a replacement motor for the unit so that the music would work again. I didn't have to beg or hassle with a million questions with them and I really appreciated that they just took care of it so quickly and politely. I will recommend Graco and their products to my family and friends. I do have other Graco products and it's a comfort now to know that if anything else goes wrong that Customer Service will be polite and take care of it, instead of hassling me about it like some other companies do when you say something stopped working. Also, to the moms who have girls, there are some really cute girly designs for swings too!

    I received this swing as a gift about 6 months ago. The motor has already gone out. When a swing costs $80+ you do noy expect for the motor to burn out in 6 months and have to keep replacing it. It would be a great swing if it weren't for the motor problem.

    it was very easy to assemble, the picture we saw on line was very helpful in helping us decide that we wanted the actual colors & print on the actual set. Now awating for our arrival to put it to great use! Love that we don't need to purchase batteries for it: ) We have not used the product however we did test it out for our little one to use once she arrives!

  • Pretty good, BUT

    I love the harness and variety of soothing sounds/melodies. However, I strongly dislike that it stops after being on for awhile, I have to turn it off and then restart it after several minutes, sometimes after an hour. Graco should know that some babies require constant ongoing motion. Part of why I purchased this swing was because it plugs in, I knew I was going to need it for several hours at a time, so I like the plug in feature which saves on batteries.

  • Great swing until the motor died

    My daughter loved this swing and sometimes it would be the only way to get her to sleep. It was great until it died about a week ago. We had it for 6 months. We are going to try and replace the motor but it was a gift so I'm not sure if we will have to pay to do so.

  • Very nice- top quality

    I've used it for the past 7 months. My daughter was a premie and since the day she was born she has loved it. Thee buttons arre touchy, but it's no big deal. THe plug in option is a money saver. My daughter loved the laying back position at first, but enjoys the sit up position now that she entertains herself. I love this swing!

    I didn't like how we put it together and some parts were not in the Instruction booklet, but after we called and they helped out I put my son in it. He loves it! He has been using is almost everyday since we got it as a gift. He is now 3 months old, still puts him to sleep nicely! : ]

    We bought this swing online in middle October and it has quit working December 10. The 1 and 2 gears were not working right for the last week and now nothing comes on. I have thrown away the box and hope I have a way to contact either Walmart or Graco to have it replaced. I guess there are lemons in all products :(

    I got this swing as a gift, and my baby loves it! I always ran out of batteries with other swings. While this one takes batterise as well, running out does not result in the annoying call to my husband asking him to pick up batteries on his way home. Oh, and the motor is still going strong :)Thanks Graco!

    I received this swing for my baby shower. When my son was 3 weeks old the motor burned out(and we were in the hospital for a week for a C-section). Only after using the swing for 2 weeks, I called Graco and they sent me a new motor. I received some of the parts quickly, while one part was on back order. Once all of the parts came in and we were able to put it back together, the motor burned out again within 2 weeks! I feel terrible that someone actually wasted their money on this to give as a gift to me! I would never recommend this swing to anyone!!

    i called and the box and the manual showed 2 toys in the tray but when i called them they say you have to purchase them separately. They are sending plugs for them to me. They should not show pictures with toys and should not show in parts list. No plugs shows on parts list

    We bought this swing for our now 11 month old when I was pregnant with him, because we liked the convenience of it plugging in instead of having to use batteries, son liked it so much the motor went out. It was a good swing and I would recommend it to anyone.

    I bought this swing for my week-old granddaughter and am very impressed with it. The music is soft and it has different swing speeds. The only negative thing I can say about it is that it does make a SLIGHT clicking sound when going back and forth; I didn't expect that. All in all, I'd buy this product again in a heartbeat!

    mobile never worked from day one, and swing motor burned out on the third time using it. Do like the fact though that the seat is adjustable and that my daughter did like being it in, too bad it only lasted us 2 weeks.

    I have this swing and use it with my twin girls. It is very comfortable, quiet and I love the music and sounds. I wish the seat reclined a little farther back, but it works great. Replacement parts can be ordered and are easily available on the graco sight. The five point harness makes me feel very confident that the babies are securely attached.

    My daughter actually slept in this Graco swing for 5 weeks because she didn't seem to want to sleep any other way! It is a nice swing, but it looks and feels cheaply made. Also, the power cord that came with it has a short or something because we had to tape the cord to one of the legs of the swing in a particular way so that it works. Pros: 1. Six different swing modes 2. Eight different sound settings 3. Easy to put together; everything pretty much snaps into place (you still need to read the directions, though) 4. Buckles so baby cannot slide or wriggle out of the seat 5. Four reclining positions (but none of them lay totally flat) Cons: 1. Sometimes the swing modes do not consistently work (often pressing one of the swing buttons is not enough... I usually have to give the swing seat a push to get it to start its normal rhythm) 2. I find the sounds annoying! Even the musical settings sound strange! I'd say out of 8 sound settings, two are tolerable... 3. The swing makes a lot of noise... there is a constant clicking sound as the swing rocks back and forth and this is not one of the sound settings 4. Again, the power cord that it came with has a short in it 5. It looks cheap and feels a bit cheap... Overall, I am reasonably happy with it and it actually has helped me get more sleep (lol). My daughter sometimes doesn't like to be strapped in, but when she has been changed and fed and still she's fussy, we will put her in this swing and it will soothe her and keep her quiet for at least an hour to an hour and a half at a time.

    I loved the swing, right up until the day that the motor stopped working. I am by myself while my husband is serving overseas. The swing gave me time to do what was needed. It is upsetting that something my son and I really enjoyed stopped working after 4 monthes of use. Nobody buys a swing for their child to sit stationary in. This Item would get 4 or 5 stars, but the most fundamental part of this item is clearly defective.

    We have twins and have had NO issues with these swings as of yet. They work as intended and are GREAT with respect to not needing batteries to swing. Very satisfied with this perchase of TWO swings so each would have their own. Also like how you can select 6 different swing rates by push button.

    I love this product i have the travel system and playpen with changing table. i love that it plays music so does my daughter and the other sounds. the speeds are awsome and the fact that its electric and batter operational i can move it around my house. unfortunately not even a week after having it home after waiting two weeks for it to arrive the motor died. you have to tap it to get it to work. from what i hear the motor is on back order so im going to try to exchange it so i dont have to wait.

    However Like the other reviews for the hug swings, this one also had problems with the motor. When I brought my daughter home she was 6lbs and 14 oz she is now around 8 lbs however since the 3rd day of me using the swing the 1 and 2 gear wont work and I was using the 3 gear last night and woke up to the swing still on but not swinging at all. I though because it was a new design they would have corrected this before coming out with it, Wrong! So now I am going to try to take it back to the store and see what they say. If you want something that wont have problems stay away from the hug swings.

    I like this swing alot, all the features are great. The colors are nice because they aren't too pink, it's more on the purple side. It's really easy to wash and change the seat pad. The tray is nice. The plug in is great, saves money on batteries. We love it.

    When we first bought this product I was 7 months pregnant with our third child who is now 3 weeks old. The instructions for this Swing was very easy to follow for I put it together myself. Once it was together, I HAD to try it out (of course). This swing has 6 speeds and a variety of sounds and music. Very nice. As soon as we brought our newborn form the hospital he started using it. He loved it. He would swing away. Now. ... i bet you are wondering why i gave it only an Average score, right? Because after only 2 weeks of use, the motor died. I had to call Graco to order a replacement motor. Apparently there are lots of problems with this because its on back order ..... so what does that tell you?? Thank god the music still plays. I believe this is my sons favorite part of the swing. lol. BUT, other than the motor dying ..... its a great thing to have. Just hopefully you will have better luck than we did.

    I had my first child in December of 2009, after my baby shower I took my gift cards & purchased this swing from babies r us. I just fell in love with the design when I went and made my registry! The first couple days the swing kept my daughter very happy :) after about a week of use it makes a annoying squeaky sound coming from the left leg of the swing. My boyfriend has tried MANY and MANY times to fix it and it still squeaks...We have no clue what to do! Also, this swing eats batteries like CRAZY!

    Graco has some great ideas for infant gear but lacks the mechanical realability to back those ideas up. My daughter absolutely loved thia swing and it was a lifesaver for me. Sometimes it's the only way to get her to sleep, and I LOVE the fact that this swing has an AC adapter. That said, this swing's motor died not even a week after we got it. I took it back to Target and they exchanged it 5 different times and I decided to try this swing again. Haven't had it one week and the motor died already it was making the same noise as before right before it died the last time I am so mad now target doesnt even carry it anymore so im just out 120.00 This is not a good swing if the motor slowed and died with a baby that only weighed 5 pounds what do you think will happen if you try to put a bigger baby in it . I would not recommend it to anyone i know just the opposite i am telling everyone about what I think about Graco baby products in general i have had good luck but not with this item

    My daughter loves this swing. She spends every nap in it and it has been in constant use since she was born 6 months ago. Motor recently died and I didn't have the receipt since it was a gift, so I called Graco and they're sending a replacement motor free of charge. Great customer service! If they hadn't fixed it I probably wouldn't of ever bought a Graco product again, but since they did I'm a customer for life.

    This is another investment that I am glad that I have. I am currently enrolled in school and I have a need baby. She needs to be held all the time. I have my computer right in my room because it is nice to just come in here and put her in the swing. It is very hard to type and hold her and this swing sooths her to where if she is in the swing and can see me she is just fine.
