My daughter loved this. Any time I needed to do anything, clean, shower, make a meal it was her favorite go to spot. I love you can easily switch from side to side or front to back motion. My daughter preferred the side to side and loved the mobile.
LOVE this swing!!

We got this swing from a cousin who had gotten it for her baby and we absolutely love this swing. Our son was in it from day one and continues to swing in it now (4months old). Its quiet and we love that the seat pivots 180 degrees and he really enjoys the music too. We highly recommend this swing!!!
didn't even work

Wouldn't even turn on after we put it together and put brand new energizer batteries in it.

I love this swing! My son used it for 14 months and now my daughter will be using it soon. It has already been through a lot and still functions perfectly. And it always knocked my son right!
This swing is a great buy! I got it when my daughter was around 8 weeks old and it was a lifesaver! It has kept her entertained and happy when I need to get things done. (She loves to be held, so this was the only thing I found that was enough like "mom" the satisfy her!) She also naps in it every day for about four hours. (I know, I shouldn't, but it works so well!) My first batteries just ran out and she's 25 weeks now! That means that it ran on it's first batteries for four hours a day for 17 weeks! I was originally wanting one that plugged in to save money on batteries, but all of the reviews on those seemed to have problems with the motors, so I feel justified now going with this battery saving swing! It's great! The only "complaints" I would have are that the mobile doesn't turn, which would have kept her interested better. The toys on the tray are okay, but she doesn't seem that impressed with them. The music does turn off after about 10 minutes or so, which wasn't a big deal for me considering my daughter doesn't like it. She prefers silence or my music, which works great for me! :) The only other thing is that while this swing is most of the time completely silent, it does click sometimes when it's been running for a long time. Not a big deal, it's never bothered my daughter, but if that's something that matters to you, it does occasionally happen.

I love this swing, and so does my daughter. I wish I would have had this swing from day one. I had the swing delivered to my house and it arrived within 4 days. It took about 30 minutes for my boyfriend to set up by himself. I love the colors and the pattern. It looks nice in my living room. The lullabies and sound effects are ok. They are kind of digital, like most kids toys, but my daughter doesn't mind. The white noise sounds are good. I can't hear the motor when the swing is on, and the 6 speeds are nice. My daughter is 8 weeks and is on the 3rd speed. I have had the swing for a month and am still on the first set of batteries. I love the seat. My daughter loves to be snuggled, so the head rest and little insert that snuggles them is perfect. It reclines back enough for her to sleep in it without being doubled over. I like the harness. It has a lot of room and options for adjustment. The removable tray is great too, since she won't use it until she is older. The only things I don't like about the swing are the fact that you can't select a certain song or set of songs. It plays through the fast and slow at the same time. The swing is big, especially in my small house, and hard to move from room to room since it doesn't fold or collapse. The mobile and toys are the same light tan, blue, and green colors as the rest of the swing, so there isn't a lot of contrast and the babies can't really see them when they are young. I put some black, white, and primary color toys on it. She seems to like them, and it was an easy fix. Overall, I would highly recommend this swing. It is a great product.

We didn't want to pay $150 for a swing but we wanted the features of a cradle swing. We found this to be an awesome swing. We got this one only in the Briarcliffe pattern. It's an amazing swing! It is so plush and comfy and great colors so can be for a girl or boy. It was extremely easy to put together. I put it together myself in about 20 minutes. It is the quitest swing I have ever heard in my life! Our baby isn't here yet, but we ran it for a bit and we kept going to check to see if it was running and of course it was. The music and lullabies are very cool and they don't sound generic at all. It runs on batteries but a friend has the same one and she has been using hers for about 8 months now and she has not had to change the batteries yet. I also love the 5 point harness and the fact that you have 4 height positions for it so the harness truly grows with your baby...it's not just one size fits all forever. I like that the tray can open to either side or can be completely removed. My sister in law has a fisher price cradle swing and it's tray can't do that. And it's a pain she says. We are thrilled with this swing and can't wait to use. Our only complaint is that the legs can't fold up to move it around you have to undo the top piece and move it and then the legs. But we bought the matching travel swing and we can move that one around the house with ease so it's not that major. Also I wish the mobile would spin easier but again no biggie because the tray has toys and you can buy other toys and link them on there so I think she will be plenty entertained by it. I also wish that it had a more upright position option but from what I have seen by the time she can sit up like that on her own she'll be more interested in getting down and moving around so again no biggie. This swing was the first big purchase we made and I love it. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I do highly recommend this swing. You will not be sorry and it's worth every penney. We truly love this so much that we are buying the entire InGenuity Briarcliffe collection.
You gotta get this swing!!!!!!!

My hubby and I did alot of research on swings and everything else baby related. I knew I wanted a swing without a doubt. But honestly, once we got to looking we didn't really see a whole lot of options. Alot of our serious research was based on family and friends and what they have and what they thought. We weren't thrilled with any and neither were they really. So we were stumped. We were just looking around at the store and we saw this. We both really liked. So, we went home and got online and did our research. We haven't found one single bad review on this swing to date. That says alot about this swing. We bought it the next day. We haven't been in a rush to get things put together but I just couldn't stand it with this. We immediately started on it and it took like 15 minutes. We put the batteries in it and ran everything on it. It was sooooo whisper type quiet, and the music and lullabies don't sound cheap and generic-their actually soothing and mellow, the pillows are so nice and I really like that they can be removed if I want to, and it swings many different ways. I am 100% completely in love with this swing. I can't wait for my lil bug to get here so I can use it. I have really come to love all Bright Starts products. They are nice, and good quality, and most importantly they are affordable. I definitely recommend this swing!!!!
Love This Swing

I love this swing. Very quiet and I love how it will snuggle a little guy like my new gradson. As he gets bigger the snuggle insert can come out to give him more room. The color is great will go in anyroom. I love the toys attached to the tray that can not be thrown in the floor. The only thing I wished it had was lights and an AC adapter. But other than that I am very pleased with my purchase!
I would recommend

I love this swing. It was a little time consuming to set up, but works really well. It changes from cradle to front to back swing easily and so far the battery life is long. It is extremely quiet and the motion itself is very smooth.
This swing is very quiet. I wish they could take that feature and build on it though, because that seems to be the onlyl thing it has going for it. I did not like the music, the motion is very slow, and it is bulky. If they could change the music selection, make the swing faster and not function at just one speed no matter what setting you have it on, and if the swing could fold up, I would have kept it. It took a while to put together as well. I have the FP luv u zoo cradle and swing and like it much more. It does make a little noise but I deal with it because of the other nice features it has.
A Swing with Superb Features

I bought this swing for my 2 month old boy after reading a lot of reviews online about different swings and this one was the best. Now that I’ve used it for a few days I just had to get online and write a review on it too so more moms will know what a great product this is. First and foremost I love how comfortable my son is when he sits in the swing - he coos so much when he's in it and I just love listening to that! :D Back to the swing, it has a lot of great features like whisperquiet - the swing is so quiet (which adds more to baby's comfort), 2 directions so I can pick and choose what my baby prefers, and it swings so smoothly! Now, the only thing that I have to gripe a little bit about is the size of the frame - it's a little larger than I prefer, BUT not too large that I can't move it around if I needed to. All in all, the pros very much outweigh this one con in my opinion, and my baby and I both really love this swing!
This is the best swing!

We love this swing! My little girl has used it from the day she came home from the hospital. She is now almost 5 months and still loves it. I like that the tray is removable and the seat tilts to accommodate her sitting up or reclined. This is seriously a Wonderful buy. Well worth the money and it is cheap compared to the Fisher Price swings and others that are $160 and up! This swing can go from side to side or front to back so no matter how the baby likes to swing it works and the best part is that it's so QUIET! I could not believe how quiet it is, my baby girl would just fall asleep and for the first few weeks this is the only place she would sleep so you can imagine how much I love this swing! Now she sleeps in her crib but she still naps in this swing. There are lots of music and sound options as well and when she gets bigger I can take off the headrest, it's removable! I also love that you can wash the seat pad if you need to, that is a great feature. I would highly reccommend this swing to anyone!
