Parent Reviews and Comments

This swing is great!  It rotates so it can swing back and forth or side to side.  We used it with our first baby who is now three and have started using it again with our newborn.

It is soft and warm for baby and the mobile is a lovely soft coloured item to gaze at.  The music or sounds are relaxing and could make anyone relaxed enough to have a sleep.

The legs are quite wide, but it's the only thing that I can fault with it.


Love this swing, completely calms my Bub down... You can swing it side to side or click it sideways to go back and forth.  The best thing I bought out of everything! Wouldn't be without it 


I love this swing and more importantly, so does my baby.

There are times when he just becomes overtired and finds it very hard to settle, so i put him in this swing, press on the music and get it moving and usually he calms straight down. He loves the movement and looking out the window for entertainment - he hasn't had much interest in the mobile or toy attachments just yet.

I love how there are various settings, however, I do wish the seat reclined further as his head can hang forwards at times.
I keep an eye on him the entire time he's in the swing as a result.

But, all in all, I'm quite happy with this product.


We got the ingenuity swing before bub was born and in general have been very happy with it. It can swing back to front or side to side and has a wide range of speeds available. The battery life is great, bub is almost 7 months and we haven't changed batteries yet. It also will play music or white noise and has a timer. Dd has quite happily slept in her swing many many times.

the cons would be that it doesn't recline as much as I would like and there is a fair bit of head slump as a consequence, it is also quite big and bulky.
