It's plush comfort and swinging fun in one great product. When babies want to relax this is where they want to go.

The side inserts are perfect for delicate newborns but are easily removed when baby gets bigger. With two recline positions three seat positions and the choice of side-to-side cradle swinging or front-to-back the options are many. That's music to a new mother's ears.

Great swing but not durable
4 Star Review   By bostonmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 30, 2014   

My daughter lived in this swing for the first few months of her life, but then the motor died and it became no different than any other infant positioner. Would highly recommend this swing but the motor did not last as long as I had thought it would.

So disappointed!
1 Star Review   By Momto3fornow on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 30, 2014   

I am so disappointed with this swing. my daughter has to be in motion in order to sleep and she really enjoyed swinging in her plush, comfortable swing. Unfortunately, We got about 2.5 months of use from this product before the motor no longer worked & we couldnt use it anymore. The mobile still works but the swing wont budge.We are now in the market for a new, hopefully longer lasting swing. Very cute product, but not worth it for the amount of use you will get from it.

Swing No More
1 Star Review   By Skelly47 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 27, 2014   

We purchased this Swing in December of 2011 when our first child was born. Our little girl loved her swing. She was comfortable and loved to swing her way to sleep. It worked well throughout the possible usage time for our big girl -- approximately 3 months; and we used it nearly everyday. When her little feet were sticking out too far we diligently packaged all items in proper packaging and stored the swing in our front entry for hopeful; later use. We are lucky, having had to unpack the Snugabunny Swing and place it back into service. Unfortunately this service time has not lasted long this go around. The motor has fried after approximately 15 uses for our little boy. Which is very unfortunate. We've found this product to be very useful. However; its durability may only provide you with the undesired task of buying a new swing for each child.

My kiddos love it!
5 Star Review   By Timsmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 23, 2014   

We have this product, and have had it since 2011. Both of my kiddos loved it! This year the motor broke, although we got a lot of use out of it, we were disappointed since it was not abused or overly used. Then I called fisher price and they are sending me a new swing! Very nice customer support! We were on the phone for very short amount of time, we tried to trouble shoot and when it didn't work she said she would send me a whole new swing!

Amazingly Effective...Until it breaks.
2 Star Review   By zenbeetleben on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 17, 2014   

We got this swing as a gift and use it everyday. It's AMAZINGLY effective in soothing our son, in fact when it comes to naptime durning the day, its often the only way he'll fall asleep... A week ago I would have given this 5 stars, and I've already recommended it to a number of friends, but in the last week unfortunately - and this is after less than 4 months of use - the motor has gone out. Reading reviews now after the fact, I see this is a very common problem, which seems ridiculous considering the cost of this thing. At the very least a swing should be designed/made to last until an average child grows too big for it - but it died before our son was even 14 lbs. Very disappointed - and all the more so because when it did worked, it worked so well...

Don't waste your money
2 Star Review   By USMCWIFE22 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 14, 2014   

We purchased this swing & used it for our first son who is now 2 years old. I chose it because of the features & it was a bonus that it was quiet. I thought I could use it for our 2nd son. He was in it for 3 months then the motor quit & it stopped swinging. Because I liked that it was so quiet silly me purchased a 2nd one. I figured maybe the 1st swing was just a lemon. Well...last night the 2nd one quit. Same thing. The motor quit & it won't swing. I am quite annoyed & since my baby loves to swing I need to start my search over. The old swings back in the day could make it through a whole family. I rate it 2 stars because of the quietness. Besides the motor quitting I am also not a fan of how large it is width wise. It takes up a lot of room.

Sleepless nights
2 Star Review   By Chris713 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 10, 2014   

We received this swing as a gift and it was a life savor until week eight. Our son would not sleep anywhere else except in his swing but the swing quit working after only eight weeks. A great swing with a terrible motor! We did love the way the swing would swing both side to side and back and forth.

Great swing for four months
2 Star Review   By yodababygirl on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 7, 2014   

My first son was given the my little lamb swing. We loved it except for the speed with which it decimated batteries. So when he was four months old and it's motor died we got the my Lil snuggabunny to replace it. Similar design just a wall plug instead of batteries. Unfortunately, his died at Christmas so by the time the new swing came with the delay from the holiday he had transitioned to his bed and no longer liked the movement of the swing. We used it, or rather tried to use it for less than a week before packing it up. When I had my second son I figured great I have a brand new swing for him. Well he is now four months old and it doesn't work. That is 2 fp swings that have died after only 4 months of use! A 4 month old baby should not be taxing a swing that supposedly is designed to work till 25 pounds! Very disappointed.

Stopped swinging

if only it were more durable
2 Star Review   By KateE on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 19, 2014   

I loved this swing and my baby did too! It was very soft and easy to clean, I loved all the features....until the motor died. I guess it wasn't built for rigorous use. My child would sleep for hours in it daily which made my life much easier. If I knew I would get more use out of it but from the other reviews it seems I'm not the only one that had this problem. I wish I had done more research before buying this :(

1 Star Review   By megan90 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 19, 2014   

We received this swing as a gift. After only having it for 3 months,the motor has gone out. Our daughter only weighs 12 pounds. There is absolutely no reason this swing should be broken from 3 months of use,which I see is a very common problem. With as much as these swings cost,you should be able to provide a durable motor. Now we are stuck with a swing that doesn't work. We will steer clear of fisher price swings from now on.

Love the swing, Best Customer Service
5 Star Review   By ChristinaS on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 18, 2014   

We got this swing from a friend at our baby shower back in 2011. We used it for our son from birth to 7 months every day, nearly all day because he either wanted to be held or swung on the highest setting. After he started to try to always climb out of it, we had to say "goodbye" and we stored it in a closet for baby number two. Baby number 2 arrived in March 2014 and I was excited to pull out the swing again. It worked for about 3 months and then the motor in the swing started to die. After a few weeks of it struggling, it finally stopped working completely. The music and moblie still worked but it didn't swing anymore. After looking up other reviews about the motor dying, I pulled out our registration card that I had sent in back in 2011 and called customer service. The lady on the other end was EXCELLENT and she walked me through the troubleshooting for the swing and ended the call with her completely replacing the swing with a new one. It was over the 1 year warranty but Fisher-Price is amazing to send me a new one! I can't wait to get that swing in the mail so I finally have a place to put the baby again. Thank you so much!

Lacks Quality
2 Star Review   By Preemom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 15, 2014   

I was super excited about the purchase of this swing, however just after my baby became accustomed to napping in it daily, it stopped working. So, what good is a swing that doesn't swing? It was great while it lasted, but now I'll chalk it up to money poorly spent. It was too expensive for only 10 months of service.

Terrible Swing
1 Star Review   By sdm120 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 12, 2014   

We hadn't had this swing very long before the motor gave out in it. My daughter loved this swing, and it was the one place that usually soothed her when she was fussy. This is my third child, and I have always trusted the Fisher Price name... Sadly, not so much anymore.

Love product, but disappointed
5 Star Review   By Twinmommy14 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 10, 2014   

We received the swing as a gift at a shower prior to the birth of our twins. The swing is awesome. Except we have already replaced the motor once since May and it is going out again. It will only rock one direction. Our girls are 3 months old and weigh 9 lbs each. So it should not be due to the weight of the twin in the swing. Again we love the swing just wish the motor was more durable.

Great when it works
2 Star Review   By Ksmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 5, 2014   

I bought this swing and immediately fell in love. My daughter loved it and fell right to sleep when she was tired and would sit and look at the birds and mirror when she was awake. It was a safe place to put the baby for a short amount of time when I needed to make dinner or something and a place she enjoyed being. We had it for 3 months and it stopped swinging. I didn't have the receipt and couldn't return it, so I threw it away. This is not a cheap item so I was pretty upset but a broken swing does me no good. I couldn't afford to get another new one so my sister gave me her old Fisher-Price My Little Lamb Platinum Edition Cradle 'n Swing. She warned me that it has been going out on her and only works half the time that the motor is going out after only 5 months of use. I figured 1/2 time is better than no time. That swing have me about a month before it stopped working too. Now I am without a swing. The cost is way to much for only a couple months of use. This swing is great. When it works, which apparently is a very short amount of time.

Loved it and now sad
4 Star Review   By xandaith on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 1, 2014   

I was gifted this swing at my baby shower and immediately found it a life saver when we got home from the hospital with baby. It was used daily, any time baby needed a nap. Then it suddenly died yesterday. The motor stopped working. Music works and birds spin just fine, but no noise or motion from the motor. I was sad to read that this is apparently a common problem with this swing model. But a quick chat with customer support and they are replacing the swing for us. I couldn't be happier with the attention and support we got from the rep I talked with. So I'm sad the first swing died and am hopeful the next one lasts long enough to get baby sleeping in the crib regularly.

Frustrated!
3 Star Review   By MaisiesMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 27, 2014   

I'm very upset to post that my motor is shot. This is the second swing I've purchased, not knowing that apparently they just stop working. My child is only 4 months old and weighs 13lbs!!! This is the ONLY way my daughter will sleep during the day and the only way I'm able to put her down! HELP, I cannot buy another one, my husband will throw a fit! On the plus side, the straps to hold the babies in are AMAZING!

Terrible
1 Star Review   By rkattk on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 27, 2014   

I got this swing for my 3rd child 1 1/2 years ago. I used it for 6 months, and then put it away. I got it out for my newborn, in May of this year, and used it for 2 weeks before the motor went out on it. The motor is terrible, and to replace the motor is so expensive, it's almost worth it just to buy a swing that's not fisher price! I am so frustrated with the whole ordeal! TERRIBLE MOTOR for a swing!

Bad motor
2 Star Review   By Momof2inBoo on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 15, 2014   

This product was great for our 1st child. When we had our second, we found that the swinging motor stopped working. The sound & animal motors still worked, but they are pointless without the swinging. We found out the next week that friends of our had the same problem with their swing (which is 6 months newer than ours). I am pleased to say that when I brought this to the attention of Fisher-Price, they offered to send me another swing since they didn't have any motors or any of this swing to replace it with. At least that is an option. This product is nice for 1 child, but be prepared that it may not work for another. Be sure to register your swing & call Fisher-Price if you have problems.

Love the item but not the reliability....
1 Star Review   By Christmas on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 10, 2014   

So I have had this swing for about 5 months. It was purchased by my parents for my baby boy and it was a life saver! My little guy actually sleeps in it more than in his crib. Up until that is that the motor just died. Completely just stopped working. The Music and the mobile still work but the swing itself does not! I was just reading the other reviews on here and it appears that I am not the only one with this issue!!! I am going to contact Fisher Price and let them know and maybe they can get it fixed or something. I was completely sold on this swing and whole heartedly recommended it up until now and reading that others are having the same issue means there is a defect somewhere.

A must-have
4 Star Review   By Mikai on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 1, 2014   

This swing was a gift from my aunt, and it has definitely been a lifesaver. My son absolutely loves to lay in it and look at himself in the mirror. The rocking and nature sounds also help a ton when he's trying to sleep. The only downsides are that it takes up quite a bit of room, and we have to turn the swing rocking level up because the motor is too slow.

Motor Died after only a few months!!
1 Star Review   By NotHappyMomInCT on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 23, 2014   

This swing was great, until the motor just up and died! I've only had this for a few months and my baby by no means is anywhere near the weight limit for it. All the electronic parts work such as the sounds and the mobile and the lights light up on the top for the speed and power indicators, but the swing makes no noise and doesn't move at all. With how much this swing cost, the motor should last a LOT longer than a couple months. And from other reviews I have seen, this is apparently not uncommon. I've reached out to Fisher Price asking for a replacement motor or a replacement swing, so we'll see how good their customer service is. Myself nor my baby who LOVES his swing are very happy at the moment!

Life Saver
5 Star Review   By HeatherMonique on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 23, 2014   

I did a lot of research before choosing this swing over others, knowing it would be a piece of living room furniture for several months & I'm so glad I chose it. The colors are very nice & style has been pleasant to look at daily. We've rcv'd several compliments on it. The versatility of the swing moving front to back or side to side has allowed up to keep our daughter facing us whether we're in the kitchen or on the couch. The sound options are great. I use waterfall for sleepy time, birds for morning & songs for awake hours when I need a break or she needs a rest but isn't sleepy. Many times, it has allowed me to get her to sleep when holding & rocking wasn't working or an option (need to cook or have mobility). My daughter is going on 8 months old now & is about to outgrow it which bums me out. The shoulder straps have allowed me to continue using it once she became active. I wish there was something comparable to put her in for the next few months because it brings her such comfort & has given me peace of mind that she's safe when I've needed to leave the room and it still helps me get her settled down when she's fighting sleep. As a newborn, I added a thin folded blanket into the cradle for extra padding & support but she was 5lb, 3oz when I brought her home (pretty small). Despite the attached netting on the back or top, this has washed well in our regular sized washer & dryer. It was easy to take off & get back on for cleaning after a diaper leaked. I've loved this product!

swing.
1 Star Review   By sadiebaby222 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 15, 2014   

I received this gift as a baby shower gift yesterday. And we we put it all together yet the swing wont move after being plugged in. The little birds do move and does make noise but that is pretty much it. I asked my friend about the receipt but told me just return to store. Baby is due any day now. This was upsetting.

Good swing but motor just stopped working!
2 Star Review   By supercricket on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 15, 2014   

This WAS a good swing, up until tonight. My daughter who is almost three months had just fallen asleep in the swing and it just stopped swinging out of nowhere. It didn't give me any warning, wasn't making any loud noises or anything, just quit working. The music still plays and mobile still spins, but the swing will not swing. I am upset because we spent a lot of money on this swing. It had all the features we needed, especially that it plugs into to wall. I think that for the price we paid the swing should be lasting a lot longer then 1 month! Even the old school swings last years beyond this thing! Totally not happy right now, what a waste of money!

A must have!
5 Star Review   By whitedove on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 14, 2014   

I got this swing as a shower gift and my son loves it. The day he got sick all over his swing was the worst day of my poor little man's life. My son screamed his little heart out until I was able to put the swing back together again (the material does wash up nicely). If Fisher price sold extra covers I would by one in a minute. I hope my son never has to wait again to use his swing. This is also a must have for me as it will calm him enough when he is fussy to put him to sleep and he loves talking to himself in the little mirror above him. I will defiantly give this product an A +.

Awesome swing and customer service
5 Star Review   By K8k8 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 4, 2014   

I used this swing for my first born who was fussy and the swing with its nice (not annoying) music and swing speeds worked wonders, saving this first time mom from feeling totally overwhelmed. After my swing was used for basically an entire year by myself then my sister, the motor died. I called customer service and they sent me a new one! Excellent customer service, a company that stands by their product, and (aside from the motor dying) an AWESOME swing.

Mobile Doesn't Spin But Great Product
5 Star Review   By MorganDaddy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 2, 2014   

This was purchased for us as a shower gift, we put it together and noticed the mobile didn't spin, we initially figured it was due to dead or low batteries or not being plugged in, so we replaced the batteries and plugged the unit in, nothing. We still use the swing, however, we wish the mobile would work to give our daughter something to look at with movement.

AWESOME CS but Lousy Product
4 Star Review   By BStruertl on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 21, 2014   

I have 7 month old twins. My husband and I purchased the snugabunny and snugapuppy for our kids. They use them almost the same amount, same rocking, same weight and length of our children and we alternate who sits in which swing on different days. The snugabunny motor has died FOUR times in the 6 months we have used the swings. The snugapuppy has yet to have any issues at all, it is still going strong! Customer service for this product is SO amazing, even though it's a shame I had to call them 4 times in the first place! The have sent me new motors and even a completely new swing. No hassles, no issues and they were polite, understanding and the shipping was VERY FAST! Unfortunately we have gotten to the point where we are just fed up with the swing! CS is refunding our money. They sent us a shipping label and just asked for the swing legs to be sent back. We are going to buy a new snuggapuppy version.

Great at first, then DIED!
3 Star Review   By Esther on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 19, 2014   

We purchased this swing when our first son was approx. 3 months old. We used it for about 6 months. When our second son was born 9 months ago, we brought it out but did not start using it until he was about 2 months old. About a month or so ago, the motor became loud. I didn't think much of it. Then it died. The music works and the little turny-thing at the top works, but the swing does not swing. very disappointed since it has been used about 1 yr total. I checked the weight and he is still way-under the limit.

Amazing customer service
5 Star Review   By MarchMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 6, 2014   

I received this swing as a gift for my first child. My daughter loved it and we used it non-stop for about 7 months (and then she out-grew it). When she was about 6 months old the motor died. HOWEVER, it only took one quick phone call to customer service and they immediately sent a new motor without any hassle or making me feel uncomfortable. Customer Service also gave us a tip that you should manually push the swing to start it in motion before you actually turn it on. We now have a second child and are again loving this swing! We received another swing (not fisher price) for our second child, but prefer this one best. Unfortunately the motor went out a second time, but, again, customer service saved the day with one quick and easy phone call. I really love that Fisher Price stands by their product. Even though we have experienced the same quality issue twice, it was completely remedied by customer service both times and I would definitely buy this product again.

Very very good product
5 Star Review   By Santik on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 17, 2014   

This product is a gift from our friends, thanks them a lot! If you wanna buy it be sure you have enough space in the room, cause this swing is big. But you'll never regret about this product! It has sounds of water, birds and other sleepy music for baby. And it is so comfy and big and soft. My baby is cranky and he couldn't just fall asleep, but now I put him into swing and he is so quiet, he likes this swing so much. And of course I like it cause I can do a lot of things now.

Wonderful product, even better customer service
5 Star Review   By Rakalandy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 16, 2014   

I got this swing about 18 months ago for my son and he slept in it every night for about 4 months (judge if you must but it kept him asleep all through the night). It was a miracle product for us because he was a very fussy baby and when we were at our wits end the swing would out him peacefully to sleep. The motor died when we began using it for our daughter (let's face it the swing had been worked like a mule with my son) and when I called customer service they actually replaced the swing for us! They stood behind their product 100% and as much as I loved it before, I love it even more now. I would unhesitatingly recommend this swing to a friend. The swing has 3 positions which is nice for a picky baby and it plays music to calm them. Our son liked thr nature noises while our daughter prefers the lullabies. We never put batteries in ours because we always have an outlet nearby but it's nice to have the option.

Great Product, Great Customer Service
5 Star Review   By KFinSD on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 11, 2014   

We received this as a gift for our first baby. She absolutely loved it and spent a ton of time in it for her first 6 months. We started using it with our second baby who also absolutely loved it and slept in it all the time. The motor broke and it was no longer working. Contacted Fisher Price who agreed to send us a replacement swing for free. Best customer service I have received ever. Very impressed with the product and how much my babies love it. Very impressed with Fisher Price and them standing behind their product.

Do Not Waste Your Money
1 Star Review   By Craw2012 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 8, 2014   

I bought this for my son, who is now only 2 months old, he was in love with swinging, But after only 3 weeks of use, and it was used for maybe an hour a day, It No longer works. The swing will not swing, I pushed it to get it going and nothing, you don't hear the motor doing anything anymore. DO NOT purchase these swings. I am not the only one who has had this issue. Save your Money.

Excellent Customer Service
4 Star Review   By Caraboo on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 7, 2014   

I was given this swing by a friend as a gift and loved it. It was the only thing that would calm my baby down and put her to sleep, especially when she was cranky. Unfortunately, after using it for a few months, the motor went out. I called customer service and after they tried to help me trouble shoot the problem to no avail, they said they would send me out another swing. I'm very impressed with their customer service and hope that the second swing lasts longer than the first one.

Poor Swing that Motor Goes Out EASILY!
1 Star Review   By ABrowand on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 7, 2014   

I am very upset with this swing! I thought Fisher Proce had good swings that lasted, boy was I wrong! I have only had my swing for a year (half the year it was not even used) and now my motor goes out in it!!! The sound and mobile works and the swing makes the motion sound sometimes but nothing happens!!! This swing is not worth 150 bucks!!!

Great until.....
2 Star Review   By Chillmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 31, 2014   

I received it as a baby shower gift and it was my Go-to swing for two months. The music and motion kept my preemie entranced. Then the swing motor died. The music still plays and the mobile will turn but nothing happens on the swing.

Absolutely Wonderful!
5 Star Review   By GracesMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 28, 2014   

This swing has been wonderful. Our daughter is now 5 months old but we have used it every day since bringing her home. She takes naps in it sometimes and it just makes her happy when cranky. Being able to plug it in rather than use batteries has helped a lot. My in-laws have a swing that uses batteries and it's not convenient at all. Our Daughter loves looking and talking to herself in the mirror. We definitely tell our friends who are having kids they need to get a swing like this one!

Love this swing
5 Star Review   By AmyMG on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 11, 2014   

We got this swing at the recommendation of a friend for our first baby that was born in November. Our son loves to sleep in it and enjoys "talking" to the birdies as well as himself in the mirror. There is a great music/sound selection as well as the multiple positioning options. Overall we are very happy with our choice. However, just this past weekend it stopped swinging after we had noticed a general slowing of it over the last few weeks. I called customer service after doing some research to see what could be done. I am incredibly happy to say that FP is replacing our swing and it was shipped less than 24 hours after I called. While it seems they are experiencing motor issues with their swings that is not stopping them from providing excellent customer service in the meantime. Overall, based on the quality and options it offers I would definitely recommend this swing.

Best swing ever!
5 Star Review   By Minders on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 5, 2014   

My husband and I bought this swing before our daughter was born and can I say lifesaver? Our daughter would only sleep in the swing for the first 3 months and she still loves to nap in her swing. Pro's: -washable cover -music -swinging motion is a great way to help them sleep! Con's: -None that I've found so far! I'd recommend this swing to all new parents!

Not durable
2 Star Review   By SantaMonicanewDad on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 3, 2014   

Unfortunately we've only used this product for about 2 weeks now (about an hour a day at a time) and it's already showing signs of life. It only works on one speed and doesn't go faster than the #2 setting. My daughter likes to swing fast so this isn't sufficing. I was really hoping this was just a random issue, but after reading the reviews I see that the motor has major issues. This was a gift, but I probably won't re-purchase once this one completely dies. If it's any consolation, my daughter LOVES being in this swing and swinging sideways. The music and mobile are also a huge bonus...just wish that FP could figure out the motor issue - shouldn't be that tough to increase the quality a bit.

Great for 2 yrs
5 Star Review   By lewdal on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 28, 2014   

Got this as a gift from my registry for baby #1. He loved it, and it was a go-to when he was fussy in the evenings. Baby #2 also loves it. The motor finally died but Fisher Price's great customer service is sending me a new one. Great customer service! Very happy with this product and company.

Stopped working in 6 days!
1 Star Review   By cayla on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 20, 2014   

The swing stop swinging after 6 days of use! That's a joke for a 150 dollar swing! If this motor goes out, I think its pretty safe to say that the motors for all their swing products will likely do the same. Beyond upset! After reading the reviews, I see this is a common occurrence!

Baby's favorite!
5 Star Review   By CleosMama on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 20, 2014   

My sister had this swing for my nephew and when I seen how much he loved it, I knew I had to get one for my daughter. He literally used it till it broke (over a year of everyday use.) I got one for my daughter and although she rarely used it when she was born, (she is 6 months now) she's grown to adore it also. It stopped swinging the other day but the mobile and music continues to play. I just got off the phone with Consumer Service & after a ten minute phone call & a little trouble shooting they decided they would just send me a new swing! I am beyond satisfied with the customer service I received and how easy and painless the process was. Double thumbs up to Fisher Price! Although I had a little manufacture glitch, I'd still recommend this swing to anyone!!!

Great Swing
5 Star Review   By JennO on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 20, 2014   

First, our little one loves this swing. It's the one item that's a sure bet to calm him down. He loves looking up at the mirror and spinning mobile and the side-to-side motion is his favorite. You can imagine my disappointment when the motor in the swing began to die. It started by not swinging as much on the high setting to barely moving at all on any setting. I emailed FP customer service who quickly sent a replacement motor, which I was able to install easily. The swing still wasn't swinging like it was, then was back to barely moving on the highest setting, so I emailed customer service again. They sent a new swing! I'm beyond impressed with Fisher-Price's customer service and will continue to purchase products from them.

Outstanding Customer Service
5 Star Review   By Twinjay on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 23, 2014   

I bought this for my granddaughter off her parents' gift registry and saw it in use the first time after she was born. Several friends have used this and similar F-P products, but I was disappointed when I put the newborn into the swing and heard the motor groaning and using only one speed instead of the variable speed settings promoted. Thank goodness for this website and the high-quality customer service from F-P. I saw the chronic complaints about the motor and called the toll-free number. The customer service rep was personable and very friendly, and I will be receiving a replacement motor unit in 7 business days! Thanks Fisher-Price, for restoring my faith in your well-earned reputation for providing supportive relationships for new parents (and grandparents, too!).

Disappointed!
2 Star Review   By ColbyK on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 23, 2014   

My son is one month old today. He weighs 9#10oz as of 3 days ago. The swing used to really swing when he was in it, which he enjoyed. Recently, it no longer swings any faster at setting 1 than it does at setting 4. It says the swig is rated to 25 lbs, but I don't think that means while swinging, since it seems to have petered out and my child isn't even 10 lbs yet. I am really disappointed! We use the swing maybe once per day or less for up to one hour. I was hoping to get more use out of this hundred dollar plus item, purchased brand new, than only one month.

The motor is slowing and I am assuming will STOP
5 Star Review   By Stuart on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 14, 2014   

My son is now 9 weeks old and I noticed that the swing is slowing down drastically and barely moving back and forth. Granted my son is now about 13lbs vs the 8lbs originally...but this swing is rated to 25 (maybe 30lbs). I have just sent an email to Fisher Price and I hope they can help with this. I really would have to lose the $170ish spent on this swing. Stuart

Great Swing - I've had it for a year
5 Star Review   By CJRH12 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 14, 2014   

My daughter has used this swing since birth. She's almost a year old now, weighing 20 lbs and still uses it. My daughter swings in it about twice a day. The swing motor stopped working after 11 months of twice/day daily usage. (The music and mobile continued to work without any issues.) HOWEVER, I went to Fisher-Price website and did an online chat with customer service to advise of the problem. I provided the date code listed on the swing to the representative and Fisher-Price sent me out a new motor head. It literally pops into place with little effort. Swing is good as new now! The swing is good quality and Fisher-Price's customer service is perfection! The material on the swing cradle is super soft and well-cushioned. The music selection is pleasant and the swing has a wide range of swing speeds. I definitely recommend this swing.

Best Swing Ever
5 Star Review   By candymelton on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 7, 2014   

My daughter is now 7 months old, and she still LOVES this swing. I can not recommend this product enough! The fabric is so soft and she seems to feel cozy and snuggled in this swing. I love that I can turn it in 3 different directions. My daughter loves the birds and has watched them since day one. I don't know what I would have done without this swing. She can hold her own bottle now, and sits in this swing every morning to drink her bottle and watch her favorite cartoon. We will be so sad when she outgrows it.

Awesome Swing!
4 Star Review   By Chicky on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 6, 2014   

This swing has been great! We got this from friend's this past Summer & our son loves it! It has a great look to it, can be used for boy or girl & the music is nice & tasteful! The only thing is that the swinging started to stop and eventually did stop, everything else worked still just not the swinging. I called Fisher Price explained to them what happened and they said they would mail me another motor. They were great to me & my son is happy to be swinging again!

Love this Swing
5 Star Review   By KHill on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 31, 2013   

Bought this swing for my now 8 month old baby girl when she was born. We have used this swing so many times, I can't even count. For a few weeks, it was the only way to get her to sleep. I have never had a problem, and 8 months later it is still working great. The variety in swinging motion, sounds, and movement of the mobile are exactly what we needed. I have nothing but love for this swing (it has saved my sanity more than once). Thank you Fisher Price!

Awesome product
5 Star Review   By Pixiecat on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 31, 2013   

Received this swing as a gift at my baby shower. My daughter is now 9 months old and this swing has been an incredible product. My 72 year old mother put it together. I've not had a single problem with the swing and it gets moved from room to room frequently. Five more pounds and my daughter will be too big to use it. She and I will both be bummed and lost without it. She looooves napping in her swing! When she was smaller she loved looking up and smiling at herself in the mirror. Now she tries to catch the birdies (sometimes succeeding!) but I've had absolutely no problem with the motor. I've never put batteries in the swing as the plug in option is all we've needed.

Life saver, but has issues
4 Star Review   By adillon1027 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 13, 2013   

My 3 month old daughter has BAD acid reflux, so her poppa bought her this swing as a gift. She sleeps in it every night because that is the only way she can sleep comfortably. After about three weeks of using it, it no longer reclines (which she sometimes likes) and the motor is slowly going. We love it because she loves to talk to the birds and it gives us peace of mind that she's not in any pain, however, it's disconcerting that the motor is going and that it doesn't recline anymore.

Broken
4 Star Review   By Casey10912 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 8, 2013   

My son loves this swing! He loves the mobile and he loves the nature sounds. He fell asleep so fast and preferred to fall asleep in the swing first then I would move him to his crib. The only thing is that I've had it less than a year and the motor has gone out! I loved this swing so much that I bought one for my sister who was expecting about 6 months ago, but if I had known the motor was going to go out, when I haven't even had the swing a year, I would've bought myself, and my sister something different. The motors are expensive so my son has been without his swing for two weeks. Fisher Price products are built to last and I was hoping the swing would be able to last for more than one child and longer than 10 months. It's expensive to buy a swing every time you have a child plus a new motor.

Great customer service for motor replacement!
5 Star Review   By Mrsivicivi on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 3, 2013   

I love this swing! Both of my boys immediately calm down and nap in it. The motor began to die when my younger son was two months old, we had used it for over a year by then. I contacted customer service, they extended the warranty and overnighted a new motor. Could not have had a better experience, and only went 36 hours with swing not working. Fp stands by their product more than many other companies, I will continue to use their products.

Does not last- 2 months in and broke
2 Star Review   By jennyrlm73 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 29, 2013   

Received as a gift 2 months ago...loved it...until last night. The motor died slowly. First would only swing very slowly on level 5 and then just died. $75 for a new motor on top of the purchase price...hmmm- something is not right about this. Baby loved it and it was a real life saver when my 4 yo wanted some attention. Will think long and hard about buying a new motor vs another brand.

Good While It Lasted
2 Star Review   By DaneGarcia on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 25, 2013   

This swing was easy to assemble and worked great... while it lasted. I have had this swing for about 4 months. My son is 5 months and 17lbs now and he loved this swing. Went to turn it on and the swing will not swing at all won't even make motor sound. The swing turns on and can make the programmed sounds and the mobile will turn but that's it. Be careful reading reviews because most people will not come back after several months and write another saying it is broken.

Love this swing
5 Star Review   By grumpgus on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 23, 2013   

Since day 1 this apparatus has both delighted and grown with my baby, it is so cozy we wish there was one for every member of the family. The music is soothing, the optional direction of sway and battery backup make it versatile, the visual design makes it an attractive addition to the room.

Great but electrical issues??
4 Star Review   By Reviewer123 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 20, 2013   

My son (now 2 y/o) loved this swing. He was only able to use it for a few months before he outgrew it though, so we packed it away in our attic. We had our second child last month and were so glad we still had the swing. However, after only one use, the motor died. I read some other reviews about this happening and followed the suggestion to contact FP customer service. Even though our swing was no longer covered by the warranty, it was decided that a new replacement motor was necessary and would be sent out; we received it within a week. I was so very appreciative! My daughter loved the swing, and she spent quite a bit of time in it! BUT, after only a month's use of the new motor died, too! Again, I called customer service and will have another new motor sent out. I think it may be some electrical issue {the plug is not grounded)?? Now that I think of it, the first time the motor died, my husband was tripping breakers in the electrical box for some renovations, and the second time the motor died, the power had gone out. I recommend this product but with a caveat: make sure to use a surge protector unless you can predict power outages!!

My daughter's favorite!!
5 Star Review   By RileyDrewsMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 27, 2013   

We've been using this swing since my (almost 5 month old) daughter was born. She loves the swinging birds and the music. Those 2 are enough to entertain her while we eat. Plus, the combination of the 2 plus the swinging motion always puts her to right to sleep. We did have a little problem with the motor just about dying on us when she was 3 months old, but when I called, there was no hassle, great customer service, and a new motor was shipped out right away. No problems since! Thank you!

LOVE but it broke too soon
5 Star Review   By Canny on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 24, 2013   

This was the third swing we tried for new baby boy. He LOVES his swing. However, almost 2 months to the day after we purchased, it is no longer swinging. I do not know what we are going to do, he just loves it so much! I would recommend but with warning.. Overall, it's a nice comfy swing with great sounds, but be careful of the motor!

Other major baby company user who tried F. P.
2 Star Review   By MeemawsRosebud on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 8, 2013   

I only bought another major baby product makers products for my children. Well baby number 3 came and I needed a new swing so I wanted to try Fisher Price as my neighbor has one which my daughter loved because of the adjustable seat. I received one for my (late) baby shower gift as baby arrived much earlier than expected. I have only had my snugabunny swing for a few months and my daughter loves it but tonight the motor died. :( Not a happy camper as she loves to swing and it puts her to sleep right away. It started going slow and would need help to get going with a small push. It started to make a noise but that noise had quit for about a week and a half. I was not aware of the problem until the hubby walked in our bedroom and called me in there to show me that the swing was not moving at all. I turned the swing off and removed the blanket that covered her then turned it back on and still NO movement with no motor noise anymore! *Sigh* This is going to be a very long process to get her to sleep sitting still due to the government shutdown and no money to replace the motor or swing period! :(''''''

Great Swing, Motor Died
4 Star Review   By San731 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 3, 2013   

We got our Fisher Price swing as a baby gift for our son who wasn't much of a swing person. So we stored it and fast forward a few months and baby 2 was here. (They are very close in age.) She is very much a swing baby. That swing has given us hours of sleep that may not be been gotten any other way. Then this past weekend the motor died! We were so distraught. I waited until today when costumer service was open and did a live chat. They were so helpful. Even though my swing is no longer under warranty, they are still sending out a replacement motor! That is so nice. Maybe they could tell I desperately needed to sleep again but I couldn't be happier with the end result.....as long as a replacement truly comes. The swing is awesome! I looks great and we love that it plugs in. No having to worry about batteries. We love it and hope to use if for many babies to come.

I bought this swing for my daughter's baby shower. She is due in october. The box it was in was all messed up like it had been returned. I asked a store clerk if there were any more in stock and she said that it had been discontinued. This was the one my daughter wanted so i got it. Making sure i could bring it back if anything was wrong. Took home put it together and it worked. They got it home and it won't do anything. Will have to see what i can do. Have the receipt but the box was thrown away.

Good Swing - Motor Did Die
3 Star Review   By MichiganMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 24, 2013   

I chose this swing because I mostly saw good reviews. I received this swing as a shower gift. I loved all the options that came with it and once my daughter was born she we were grateful for those options. The multiple swing positions were great. Having multiple sounds to chose from were nice and not having to use batteries was a big factor. Unfortunately, after about two months the swing began to make noises. Over the next few months the noises got louder and the swing slowed down drastically. When we first got it we couldn't imagine putting a newborn in it even on the second speed, only to end up needing to crank up the speed to the max just to get it moving with the help of a push. My daughter just turned 7 months old and her swing motor completely died earlier this week. The sounds and mobile still work, but no absolutely no swinging. She only weighs 17.5 lbs and for the past two months has only used her swing twice a day to sleep in for naps. My daughter loves this swing (even with it currently not swinging she still sleeps in it for naps), and I love the features. My biggest complaint is the poor swing motor, for an item that costs just over $150.00 I would expect it to last longer than 6.5 months. Had it not of been for Fisher Price's customer service in rectifying the situation, I would of given this product a much lower review. I just want to say I was very pleased with Fisher Price's customer service. I did a chat with a customer service agent online and within 5 minutes had my situation resolved.

I chose this swing because it plugged in and after dealing with batteries with my other 2 children it was important to me that it plugged in. After 3 months the motor died. The mobile and sound still work but it won't swing. My son is only 11.5 pounds so I know its not because he is too heavy. Annoyed! I rely on the swing because my son has bad reflux. I sure hope its not going to take weeks to resolve the issue

Really great product!
5 Star Review   By MandaPanda32 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 3, 2013   

We bought this about a month after our baby girl was born. She LOVED it!!! She used it until she was too old to use it anymore. We still have it and are hoping our new arrival (due September) will love it as much. We did have to replace the motor twice--but Fisher Price has a year warranty. We just called their customer service department, told them about the motor going out and they sent us a new one. It seems that the biggest complaint with ALL swings (any brand!) is the motor, but really, if you have to deal with a motor going out, Fisher Price is probably who you want to deal with. They were really great. We own so many of their products and I just really believe they're a good company. I don't say that lightly--I'm actually pretty hard to please. They, however, have impressed me.

Great Swing
5 Star Review   By MimiG on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 31, 2013   

My husband and I bought this swing two and half years ago for our first grandson as he spent a couple of days a week at our house and it really soothed him when he was fussy. He loved the swing and he enjoyed the music. We especially loved the fact that it has an electric motor to keep the swing swinging. (We were used to the old wind-up swings for our children - wow loved this feature!). Our second grandson has been using the same swing for the past nine months and he loves it too. We have not had any problems with the motor or the swing components. I would highly recommend this product.

Motor Went Out...
3 Star Review   By AnabelleNDanielsMommy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 25, 2013   

I would recommend this product to everyone with a baby...if the motor didn't go out. The whole reason I ended up on this site is to see what the maximum weight was. It says 25lbs. but my son is only 14 lbs and it already went out. With my 3 year old daughter I had the "My Little Lamb" cradle and swing (basically the same thing, except a lamb) and I had the same thing happen! Around the same time. As soon as she turned 3 months, the age my son is now. So for the first 3 months of my kids' lives, this was a LIFE SAVER, but something that cost this much money, and only last 3 months is a no no in my book.

A lifesaver - where can I get the music??!!
5 Star Review   By KWEBER1978 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 21, 2013   

This swing is amazing and the best thing I purchased for my son as an infant. Now that he is too big for it, we still have it in his room because he LOVES the music. Does anyone know if I can buy a Fisher Price product which plays the same music?

The Motor Died :((
1 Star Review   By supermom2 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 21, 2013   

My son who is only 15 lbs loved the swing since he was just a few days old. We decided on this swing after reviewing many swings out in the market and also for the fact that it did not need batteries. My little guy would take naps on it until today when the motor broke. The swing is not swinging anymore :((

Great helper
4 Star Review   By Rocki on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 19, 2013   

We bought this swing when our son was about 6 weeks old to help him calm down in the evenings. He's now over 7 months and we still occasionally use it. As he got heavier we noticed the motor straining to start the swing. We found if we started the swinging motion before turning on the motor, there were no issues. This swing has been a lifesaver and I tell all my friends about it. All my Fisher Price items are holding together great.

Not Durable
2 Star Review   By Kayley on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 12, 2013   

My daughter loves the swings, we would always put her in the swing to help her sleep, but the motor went out when she turned four months. Not worth the money.

Not a 25 lb weight limit :(
2 Star Review   By clgulbrandsen on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 11, 2013   

I bought this swing in April it is now early July and it will not swing. My children loved the swing. The weight limit says 25 lb but I would say that's not correct. My son is not 25 lb and it stopped working. I would think for $160.00 it would last more than a little over 3 months.

Poor motor function and disappointed
2 Star Review   By WLE91013 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 23, 2013   

We really love this swing. My 4 month old daughter really, really, loves this swing. It helps her take a nap. She also just likes to sit in it without it being on. We bought 2. Our first on lasted a month before the motor died. So we just bought another one thinking we probably broke it. But the second one we bought was in April, it lasted until today. We bought this because we like all the different features and it comforts my little girl when she's having a fit. I hope this can be resolved.

Poor durability
3 Star Review   By Stacy001531 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 17, 2013   

I purchased this swing specifically because it had a plug. I had a fisher price swing for my son that is almost 7yrs old but is battery operated so I decided to get this one to save on the cost of continuously buying batteries. My daughter absolutely loved this swing. She is very colicky and the swing helped her sleep. After approx. 3 months of using it, the motor died. I was very disappointed and had to go back to using my battery operated swing.

Worth every penny
5 Star Review   By Lolo7007 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 13, 2013   

I received this swing as a gift from my registry. My baby was born in late January and I have been using it everyday since he was one week old. I have never had any complaint about this product except for that I wish the weight limit was higher. Meaning my son lives it so much I am afraid the day he outweighs it. As soon as my son needs to go down for a nap I put him in the swing and he is out within 10 minutes (max). The base is rather large in length but this product is worth it's weight in gold. It allowed me to cook dinner, do laundry or more importantly take a nap. I would highly recommend this swing to my closest friends

Best Ever and Good Warranty
5 Star Review   By Bert on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 22, 2013   

We received this swing at my baby shower after 7 months of use the motor died. I knew this was a possibility due to other reviews. I called fisher price that day and because it has a 1 year warrant from date of purchase I was able to get a replacement. The worker gave me two options to replace and I got to chose which one was best for us. She has now been using the new swing for 4 months and no problems. We Love this swing. We have had our friends buy it also

Best Purchase Ever!
5 Star Review   Fisher-Price_Reviews   

I have twins and My Little Snugabunny saved me! The first one I received as a gift. The girls and I both liked it so much, that I purchased a second swing. My Little Snugabunny was a second set of hands. Truly the best gift and purchase ever.

Hands Down BEST Purchase!!
5 Star Review   By SouthernGal on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 18, 2013   

We LOVE this swing! It's the perfect improvement to swings we have purchased in the past for our first two children. We chose this swing because we needed something portable our third baby could sleep in - since we don't have an official baby room. Our six month old baby girl has slept in this swing since she was two months old. We tried the bassinet we used for our first two babies - but this baby didn't want to have anything to do with it. She preferred this swing hands down! The seat of this swing cradles baby so softly. She actually gets really happy when we put her in her swing. She turns her head to the side and snuggles the bunny ears and goes right to sleep - it's the funniest thing! She LOVES this swing! And we do too because she falls asleep so fast with a big huge smile on her face. My first child never went to sleep that easily! I wish this swing was available when my first child was born - it would have made our lives so much easier - and would have probably helped to reduce our first child's reflux. This swing has a couple of different angle positions you can adjust the seat to - and it has several different swing speeds. The third speed is the highest we've used - not sure I would want to try the higher positions - the third position seems fast enough. The music is also very soothing and we love that you can change the volume. This swing also comes with a plug which is FANTASTIC! With our last swing we went through lots of batteries which added up quickly. With this swing - we've saved lots of money on batteries just by using the convenient plug. The only thing I would add to this swing is different "white noise" options. Our baby loves to listen to white noise when she sleeps - like a fan, rain, and an ocean sound from a baby white noise machine. Add a white noise option and this swing will be perfect! Oh - and it would be nice if we could buy an extra seat cover - since our baby sleeps in this swing daily it would be nice to have a spare seat cover to use while one is being washed.

A Must Have...Seriously!
5 Star Review   By fergthestudent on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 10, 2013   

This is an amazingly EFFECTIVE product that calms down our new baby girl. The three different swing angles are great because my little girl doesn't get used to one set motion. If I could improve it, I would add an iPhone dock that hooks into the swing's speakers (and charges the phone as well, duh)!

2 Star Review   By Tiffanylist on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 31, 2013   

I got this swing in November ad my son 12-21-12 and the swing stopped working two weeks ago, won't swing or play music anymore. And my son loves his swing, this is not a cheap swing and I seen on the fisher price website that you can buy the new part for $75 , why should I have to pay for something that is having a lot of problems with, fisher price should stand behind there product and replace with a new swing or money back!

It worked !!
5 Star Review   By prashious on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 27, 2013   

One of the good purchases I have made. Another quality product from Fisher Price. The fabric is very soft. I like all of its features. Very useful to make an infant go to sleep. Make sure the belts are ON when the baby is in it.

Poor Motor Capabilities
2 Star Review   By Potts10 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 23, 2013   

We purchased this item back in December (2012) and the motor just stopped working the day before yesterday. Our 4 1/2 month old loves this swing andso did we until this happened. She is only 14 lbs and the weight limit on it its 25lbs. We are very disappointed in this product for the price that we paid for it.
