1 Star Review   By katlin on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 7, 2011   

we purchased this swing for our baby girl, and were very disappointed in the quality. it looks great, and is super cute...however, it never worked! it swings for like 30 seconds, and then just clicks without moving. would not recommend.

Not so good
3 Star Review   By kelbel on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 7, 2011   

This swing is very attractive. I live on a farm so I love the How Now Brown Cow design. Besides the easy portablility, this is about the only thing it has going for it. I keep the swing at my parents house 1 1/2 hours away so that he has something there when we visit and I don't have so much to pack. My son has used it all together for 3 visits so far. Right from the start, it seemed to have one setting which was FAST. No matter where the switch was set at, it was swinging very quickly. The longer my son sat in it, it would slow down and speed up on its own. The second day that he was with my parents, they changed the batteries in it because it started to swing very slowly like the batteries were dying and it was not on the slow setting. This doesn't make a lot of sense because the other batteries were brand new. I also wish that the swing had music you could play while he is swinging. I add my own music sometimes with his other musical toys but it would be a nice additional feature that would help to soothe the baby.

Love the cute design and the open top. But as others have commented the swing doesn't swing. We have only had ours for 3 months and haven't used it that often! It statred out with 5 speeds. Now it only has one--SLOW. And my LO likes the faster speeds, so he'd no longer interested in this swing at all! Yes, we have changed the batteries (TWICE!) and checked the weight limit (25lbs.)

just ok
2 Star Review   By nm2010 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 24, 2011   

found this swing ok for the price and purpose. Not as good as a full size swing (ofcourse), but good enough for a take along. Use it at friends houses when we visit. Recommend for occasional take along use, but not for daily regular swing.

Do not Buy this Swing!!!
1 Star Review   By mommyintraining on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 6, 2011   

We were given this swing once our child was born. Actually I had put it on my wish list because I thought Fisher Price would be a good swing. We only had it about 3 weeks and had to "exchange" it as the arm did not swing anymore. (yes we put new batteries in it) And even the "exchanged" swing doesnt work... it wont swing at all now! I wish I could exchange it again for a different brand TOTALLY!!! We are sooo disappointed with Fisher Price and this swing!! Whatever you do DO NOT BUY THIS SWING!!!!!

Love This Swing
5 Star Review   By Scout on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 7, 2011   

We needed a swing that was lightweight, easy to fold and ultra portable to use at our house and my mom's (she keeps him during the day while I'm at work). My son, who is now 4 months old has used this swing everyday. We take this swing everywhere! It is extremely durable, the cute pattern hasn't faded a bit after multiple washings and I've only changed the batteries in it once - about two days ago. The swing did slow down when the batteries were almost dead, but it was obvious what the problem was. This swing has been a lifesaver for this first time mommy.

SLOW SWING SWINGER
3 Star Review   By DEBO on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 27, 2010   

We were initially very pleased with the swing. But after using it for less than a month we noticed the variation in speed decreased tremendously. Now, after using it for less than 3 months it has one speed - slow. Very disappointing but to be sure, SLOW GO is better than NO GO so we'll continue to stay in the swing of things!

Not Impressed
2 Star Review   By Wensycal on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 24, 2010   

I received this as a gift for my little one who is almost 3 months and about 11.5 pounds. I was not impressed with the swing because once assembled, it is rather wobbly. I get that once the baby is in the swing, the baby's weight stabalizes the swing, but I just believe it should be stable, period. Its just for the babysitters, but I'm seriously considering getting something else considering the cost of the swing. Find something else Moms.
