Fisher Price Open Top Take-Along Swing
I purchased this swing after my second child and i am so glad i did.
With 2 children under 2 it was often a real challenge and this swing made my life so easier on many occasions - i used for day sleeps sometimes and being able to have my baby rocked by the swing when i was needed with my older child was heaven sent.
The swing is quite light, which was handy as i moved it all around the house. I will say though that on the box it makes it appear as if you can just carry it one handed using the side handles - you really can't. In saying that it is still reasonably easy to move but i found i did need both hands.
The music is your regular kiddy music - i didn't find it overly annoying but if you did it can easy be turned off.
Very colourful and cute and my DD enjoyed the dangly animals it comes with.
It does require battaries to run but i found it lasted a reasonable amount of time before the battaries needed replacing.
My only major issue with this swing is that the swinging motion can be quite strong. It was still useable though and an absolutely useful thing to have.
Overall a very handy item that i would absolutely recommend.
This swing is awesome! It allowed me so much freedom as it is lightweight and so portable. I could take a shower, cook dinner and do other chores knowing bub was safe and entertained! We used it from the day we came home until my son outgrew it and will be used if we have any more.
The only critical point I could make is to make sure you keep an eye on it if using with a newborn as the lack of weight of a newbie meant it would sometimes "take off" and swing quite fast, but this could be fixed by draping a blanket over bub & down the sides.
