Two nature sounds further enhance the rainforest atmosphere, while the overhead mobile includes a leaf canopy that gently opens and closes around three plush animal friends. The mobile also swings away to provide an open-top design, allowing you to easily get your baby in and out of the seat. The seat features a snack tray, a two-position recline, and an easy-to-remove machine washable pad.Fisher-Price Rainforest Open-Top Cradle Swing includes A/C Adapter or batteries can be used, 4 D (not included).

Since then, generations of children have grown up playing with Fisher-Prices award winning baby toys and using Fisher-Prices award winning baby gear. Currently, Fisher-Price is the umbrella brand over all of Mattel's infant and preschool lines.

Life saver for my wife...
5 Star Review   By AlbertaDad on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 29, 2014   

It can be very hard to keep a clean house with a new baby that doesn't like to nap (at all). But this swing would keep him happy for 30-40 minutes at a time, which was enough time to vacuum, or make lunch or clean the kitchen. Mostly because he could see her while she did it, but also because the mobile would entertain him and the swinging would sooth him. He never really liked the music, but he did like the 'rainforest' sounds. Our second baby loved it too, and his older brother would sit in front of it and tell him stories he would make up from pictures in books. Great investment. We gave it away to someone else and they are loving it now as well. 5 years later and everything still works.

Best Baby Gift Ever
5 Star Review   By Liseanne on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 16, 2014   

We received this swing used from a friend of the family. Our infant son was diagnosed with acid reflux at 3 weeks of age and it is impossible to put him to sleep in his crib. This swing has been a life saver! He takes most of his naps in the swing and he absolutely loves it. He even loves to watch the mobile prior to dozing off. The soft music helps to drown out background noise and lull him into dreamland. The ability to change the swinging motion from front-to-back to side-to-side is wonderful. We also really appreciate the fact that it is electrically operated. I would definitely recommend this swing to anyone!

Great swing, but can't take it apart for storage!
4 Star Review   By grammie2mimi on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 9, 2014   

A great little swing, lots of good features. The seat does require two hands to adjust so make sure it's adjusted before trying to put a sleeping baby in it. Everything washes up great. Taking it apart and storing it are the only problem I'm having now. I was only able to take off the base legs, everything else looks like it comes off with a screw driver, not a good option. So I have a bulky swing laying on it's side on the floor and I'm afraid over time that will damage it from not laying flat. Am I missing something here?! I hope so, because I want to keep it for the next baby, but I have to be able to store it until then.

Wonderful swing
5 Star Review   By Katusz on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 13, 2014   

We got this as a hand me down from my cousin who used it with one child. Mt child refused to sleep in her crib for the first 4 months and this swing saved us. The legs are rather wide, but that's to be expected. A bit difficult to move from room to room (it would be nice if there was a latch to hold the legs together for transport/storage). The mobile is cute and the animals wash well in a mesh bag as my daughter loves to play with them on the floor. The fabric liner washes well and dries quickly in the dryer perfect for liquid based accidents and a quick turn around to use the swing again. The lap strap us a bit difficult to use if your child sleeps in a sleep sack but you can make it work. I will be passing this swing to a friend. No issues here with the motor or functions just once and a while I need to give it a little swing by hand to get it swinging on the lowest setting.

5 Star Review   By fieldsoflove on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 25, 2013   

I absolutely love this swing. My one month old is so content with this product and allows me time to get things done. It calms him n rocks him to sleep during the times where he is trying to fight his sleep. The best money I ever spent. THANK YOU FISHER PRICE!

A MUST HAVE
5 Star Review   By taborca09 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 5, 2013   

We couldn't have lived without this swing! I LOVE the fact that it swings both ways and that it has the option of being operated electrically. SMARTEST invention ever. Batteries should be a thing of the past for stuff like this. My son loves the side to side motion. He takes most of his naps in this swing. He is also starting to enjoy the mobile at the top now that he is old enough to be taking notice. Awesome product.

Cradle swing
5 Star Review   By Granma on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 8, 2013   

I am a volunteer granny at st.peter nursery and toddlers program. We were donated a cradle swing (aquarium) and have used it every day to swing our babies. It is getting very tired out, and sometimes doesn't do it's job. We have four other swings of various styles, but none measures up to this particular swing. We have changed batteries regularly and have kept it looking just like new. I have been on line trying to replace this swing, but it is so costly for a small program like ours. I have been buying fisher price products since the 60's for my children and grandchildren and still have some for my great grand babies to enjoy from that time. Would it be possible for you to help us with a donation of the rainforest cradle swing? It most certainly would be appreciated. Thank you for your time. Granma

4 Star Review   By cheeta on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 18, 2013   

I really liked the openness of this swing and the mobile. It's leg span is not as big as some others so its a little more compact. I didn't like the seat.... it just seemed to small and crampy for my 3 1/2 month old. i returned it

Very disappointed
1 Star Review   By kckmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 17, 2013   

We bought this swing it worked for the first month. It will not swing & thats the whole point that it swings bc it is a swing. We have a very colic baby and she loved the swing when it worked. I saw on another review that it is $75 for a replacement motor and I could just buy another swing for that amount. Im very disappointed seeing that i grew up with fisher price toys myself. Apparently I am not the only one w this issue and the manufacture should replace the motor, not me. . I have the high chair, bounce seat, and pack n play. the pack n play have been recalled. Seems like alot of issues with this line of rainforest products.

Typical problems
2 Star Review   By Jere on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 6, 2013   

We have had this swing for over 4 years now. My daughter used it for around 6 months. Then we put it away in storage. This past October, my son was born so we got the swing out for him. Used it for a few weeks, then we started having problems. The swing would no longer swing in the low setting. Then it continued thru the other lower setting. The only setting that it will currently work in is high setting, but my son gets motion sickness from this one. I got a price of $75 just for the motor assembly. Personally I think that is ridiculous. I do not like to throw things away, but am considering throwing this away at that price. This should last for more than 1 kid.

This product is awesome
5 Star Review   By JSandersKY on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 5, 2013   

This was given to my daughter by a family with several children that used the swing. It was filthy and I wasn't sure it was even going to work. It looked almost new after power washing it in the drive way. This has been a most awesome swing and my grand-daughter truly enjoys spending time in it. The features like the swing away mobile really keep her attention as she is falling asleep or right after she wakes up. The ability to swing her side to side or front to back is a wonderful design. Thank you for such a well thought through and solid design. I don't know how old this swing is but am sure we will pass it on to someone else.

Disappointing Quality
3 Star Review   By JennyR on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 11, 2012   

I bought this For my Son who was only Born last year.. and We used it Rarely. But When we did he seemed to Enjoy himself and was in Awe of the Little Mobile that Spins and the leafs that go up and down. I am About to have another baby and want to us this for her. And to my DISAPPOINTMENT one of the leafs on the Mobile has stopped working. The Little Characters Still Spin and the other too leafs work.. just one wont lift back up and when the characters spin it gets caught on the leaf so I cant use this feature. I jumped online to see if it could be easily replaced.. but you Charge 50.00 .. Which sadly tells me since you even sell the Mobile/motor part you are certainly aware of some sort of failure issue.. I could not figure out where there was a contact so and so section about this issue so this is my review.. I was torn Between the swing I really wanted (Competitor brand) and this one and it ultimately came down to pricing.. now that I would have to pay $50.00 to fix it myself. I don't feel I made the right call.. This swing will end up costing me more then the one I really wanted Originally Cost :( you don't have to post this but I would appreciate a response

Worth EVERY penny times thousand (at least)
5 Star Review   By KatGC on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 24, 2012   

This swing is a total (work) life-saver! We got it when our baby was about 6 weeks old because I had to start working again and needed the baby to be on a reliable nap/waking time schedule. Ever since then he takes a long, peaceful nap every morning in it. He is now 5.5 months old and we will probably transition him to napping in the crib in a couple of weeks/month. A consistent napping schedule is essential for him (to be well rested) and for me or my husband (to get our morning work done). The head-rest is great because it allows even a very young baby to sleep comfortably. We use the recline position and only the front-back swinging motion. We also don't use the music or animal entertainment features. This swing is used only for napping and it works great for us! Definitely recommended.

A Cute Swing that Plugs into the wall!
5 Star Review   By NattyJ on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 24, 2012   

This swing is fantastic! It plugs into the wall, so we have never had to use batteries for it! The songs and rainforest sounds are nice, but we don't use them that often. I wish this swing had a little mirror up where the animal mobile is. The swing folds for storage, it is not tiny when it folds, but it fits well in a closet. The lowest swing setting is pretty fast for a newborn (under 7 pounds). The highest setting isn't enough to swing a 25 pound baby enough. We stop using the swing when our kids reach about 18 pounds, but by then, I'm ready to get it out of the family room anyway!

poor quality
3 Star Review   By JoyceMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 21, 2012   

I wish I had considered the negative reviews of this product Before I made the purchase. The music is not playing and the buttons hardly work. I called the customer service to get motor and mobile part replaced. Surprisingly, the issue does not resolved! I called again and they are sending me a new motor with mobile again. I do not understand the quality of the product. How come the new part is not working either?! It is unacceptable. This kind of baby gear is in use for limited time. People do not have months to wait for part replacement.

Buttons not working properly
3 Star Review   By j2d88 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 12, 2012   

I purchased this swing a couple years back for my son, the swing was hardly used, everything worked as it was supposed to in fact the swing still looks brand new. Now we've pulled the swing "out of retirement" looking forward to using the swing not to mention the idea of "getting our monies worth" when we went to use the swing we found that the music no longer works, all switches must be off for the mobile to turn off, the swing goes at the fastest setting regardless of what its set on, does not always "catch" that the swing has been turned on and also the contol setting for the music, mobile, ect also is controling the swing now... considering as much as we paid and it wasnt used much, im very disappointed that we're having this issue and dont understand why....major malfunction.

Great Swing
5 Star Review   By Rhyne on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 8, 2012   

I really like this swing. The fact that it moves front and back as well as side to side is great. My son didn't start to really enjoy the swing until he was about 16 weeks old. But, now he loves it. He loves to watch the animal mobile and sometimes even falls sleep in it! I also love that it plugs in, so we don't have to spend money on batteries. Totally worth the money!

Product lasts
5 Star Review   By MomofGrowingGirls on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 22, 2011   

Very Durable, a friend of mine gave it to me after her son out grew it, it is now on the 4th child to use it and never had any problems with it.. my 3 week old falls asleep right away and my 18 month old climbs in it and swings herself. motor still works like brand new. the only thing is i removed the tray in the front of the seat for it was more in the way than useful. after i am done i would pass this one on and recommend any parent to get this swing.

Does not work
2 Star Review   By CCMommy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 26, 2011   

I received this swing as a gift at my baby shower. I specifically asked for it because it plugged into the wall and I had had bad experienced in the past with other swings running out of batteries so quickly. My son just turned 6 weeks old and the swing has already stopped working properly. First of all it makes an extremely loud squeaking noise which wakes up my baby everytime I try to put him in it. It also stopped swinging. Even on the highest setting you have to constantly give it a push to get it to start swinging and have to keep pushing it in order to keep it swinging. My son is only 10 lbs so it can't be that he's too heavy for the swing. I am extremely dissapointed.

Good swing but some quirks
4 Star Review   By jessbbg3 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 10, 2011   

I bought this for my newborn son because he hated the papasan style swing I had bought first. He is SO much more comfortable in his Rainforest swing. It's a very attractive swing, and I simply LOVE the fact that you can plug it in instead of having to use batteries. My son had colic and spent a lot of time sleeping in here, and still prefers it. My only complaints would be 1. The music/sounds. They can be a little jarring (even the softer, "soothing" setting--but my son was/is extra sensitive so maybe it's just us and others don't find it jarring). 2. From about 16 pounds on I noticed it had to work much harder to swing him, taking significantly longer to get a good swing going and not swinging as "high" anymore. At about 17 pounds it took so long that I gave up and now I get it swinging fully and then turn it on. To its credit, it has a "smart" motor that can pick up the rhythm after the swing is in motion, something I didn't have with my daughter a couple of years ago! Ultimately, I'm very happy with my purchase--it is a really nice swing and has helped us out a lot, but they could have given at least one music setting without any sudden or jarring sounds, and with a weight limit of 25 lbs, I expected the motor to be able to handle at least 20 before straining. I doubt it will be usable at 25 lbs. Just hoping this little guy won't need it by then. Most kids don't, so I'm sure it's not a problem for the majority. Just something to consider if you are thinking about purchasing. All my friends and family love it, and so do I. Just a couple of quirks.

This product was a life saver!
5 Star Review   By doubletrouble on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 30, 2011   

Both my babies had colic/reflux and the only way for them to have a good sleep was to have their head elevated. This swing was great beause you can adjust how high or low you want them to recline, the chair pivots so they can swing side to side or forward and back, and you have the plug in or battery option. The motor for the swing and the mobile was a little loud but nothing I couldn't sleep through! I would recommend this swing to any parent!!

Son loves it!
4 Star Review   By ZeinMommy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 20, 2011   

I received this swing as a gift for my baby shower. My son loved it until the motor went out and the swing does not swing anymore. I called Fisher Price customer relations and the rep I spoke to is sending out a replacement motor. One complaint I do have is the mobile motor is really loud. Not soothing at all. All in all it is a good product, has many good features and is very bright and cheery.

LOVE IT!!
5 Star Review   By shamod on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 6, 2011   

We just got this swing for our 9 week old. It was easy to assemble, really cute, has nice music and nature sounds that won't drive you insane, and has 2 swinging options. The minute we got it set up we put her in it and she instantly fell asleep... so its pretty clear that she approves of the swing as well. The motor for the mobile is a little loud. The swing motor also makes a little noise, but not bad. My husband said he thought the noise the swing motor makes is soothing, he thought it might put him to sleep too. haha :)

Not Very Durable
2 Star Review   By tel222 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 10, 2011   

We got this swing when our daughter was born and used until she was 5 months old. We loved all that it had to offer as well as the theme which we also purchased the bouncy chair and pack-n-play in. This swing has been packed away since she last used it at 5 months. I took the swing out recently to use while I was watching a friend's 3 month old and the music/mobile no longer work. I used it approximately 4 times since then and the motor burnt up and smelt like burning plastic. For the price of this swing it should have lasted ten kids, not just my one!! I could have purchased 5 used swings for the cost of this one which probably would have outlasted this one , whom might I add is 2 years old and just 26lbs now. I'm thouroughly disapointed in this swing and the fact that the pack-n-play had to be sent back in. I don't recommend this product for it's price to anyone, and would sooner recommend buying a more durable used swing for much less at a rummage sale. You'll only be out $20 if it breaks.

LOVE THIS
5 Star Review   By HUTCH66 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 27, 2011   

Setting up this swing was a breeze. We love the colors and all of the "tunes." It's very sturdy and I don't worry about our baby. I love that it folds for easy storage, although we will probably have it out most of the time. The motor to the mobile is a little loud, but it can’t be overheard over the music. My husband thinks that it's a soothing "noise" it's not disturbing at all. I would recommend this product to anyone...we love it!

Some Times its work and some times it doesn't

Great Swing to own!
5 Star Review   By katielady on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 18, 2010   

I bought this swing for my son who is now 2 years old. He just loved it and it was perfect since he would only sleep most of the time in there. I just recently had my second son who is now 3 months old and it still is working. The music quit on it and I called fisher price they fixed the problem and replaced the motor - no questions asked. I am very proud to have this swing by fisher price. It's well over 2 years old and used and still works n' looks brand new! A++ Item. Thanks Fisher price :)

Best swing out there!
5 Star Review   By MommyDeb on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 17, 2010   

My daughter loves this swing. She loves to watch the toys and the unique sounds are soothing to her and myself. Not the mechanical music box sound that you get with other swings. I like that I can change swing possitions and that I can plug it into the wall. The only complaint I have about it is that the swing motor only has one speed (fast and big). This is the reason for the 4 Baby feet rating.It doesn't matter what speed I turn it on, it's all the same. I believe I may have a faulty motor. My husband didn't like me swinging her in it when she was a newborn for fear she would be thrown out. Other than that, I fully recomend this swing. You won't find a better one out there! Buy, Buy, Buy!

Very Disappointed
1 Star Review   By ncbusymom0226 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 9, 2010   

I purchased this swing because I was thinking the swing would work with either male or female because it has a cute pattern. I was hoping to use it in the future as well as with my current child. My son was not big on the swinging action but liked the overhead mobile and songs. After using this only a VERY FEW times, this product quit. No swinging action, no music. I intend on calling Fisher Price about this purchase.

4 Star Review   By Charlieman on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jun 19, 2010   

This was a good swing. It did everything it was supposed to and I used it for quite awhile. It is pretty big and bulky, and took up ALOT of room in our house though.

5 Star Review   By MomofCris on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 20, 2010   

My baby loves his swing. I have used it to sit him down to eat, to sleep, and to relax him. I cant remember a day so far that I have not used it. Its durable, fun and I have never had a problem with it.

1 Star Review   By Upset on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 2, 2010   

I got this swing when my baby was a couple of weeks old, he is not even 4 months yet and the swing will not swing him any more, he is only 13 Lbs, and has a max weight of 25 Lbs. I am very upset and not happy with this product. I would not reccomend this product for a friend to buy.

little upset
3 Star Review   By mom2two on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 11, 2010   

I recieved this swing as a gift at my baby shower for my 3 month old. I absolutely loved it at first. He uses it to take his naps in and he has a slight bit of colic and the side to side rocking seems to settle him down. I put him in it tonight and it worked fine, then I noticed the music sounded as if it were running on batteries that were almost dead. I have it plugged in, so thats not the case. Then everything stopped working at once. I am going to call customer service in the morning and I hope things get resolved as I was happy before this happened. I don't know if it just a freak thing that hapened, if the motor just went out or what. But I have noticed that it has happened to others and not just me. I just hope to get it resolved because the store won't take it back without a reciept and I really can't afford to go out and just get a new swing.

Perfect... even for a preemie
5 Star Review   By EJandMAsMommy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 8, 2010   

My little guy was already 4.5 months old when we brought him home, but at just two weeks past his due date, he was still the size of a newborn (6lbs). We were able to put him in his swing the day we came home, and he's loved it ever since. When he was still younger and smaller, the cradle aspect was perfect due to his lack of head control. Now that he's bigger, we can adjust the seat and he LOVES to listen to his music and watch the mobile above him. It has calmed him through some pretty major reflux issues; and being able to choose from a side-to-side motion or front-to-back has been perfect for that! He's now 11 months old and nearly 20 lbs, and he still loves his swing! I'm just bummed we are going to have to stop using his cradle swing in the next few months! I highly recommend this swing! It seems to be built well, as ours gets regular use and we've never had a problem. I'll even be able to pass it on to friends when my guy outgrows it!

Leaves Something To Be Desired
2 Star Review   By Bryony on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 25, 2010   

We received this swing as a gift when my youngest son was 3 months old. My son LOVES to swing but unfortunately, the swing died when my son wasn't even 6 months old. It just stopped swinging. Like the other reviewers, I thought maybe he was just to heavy for it, but the swing didn't even work empty. It seems like this may be a mechanical problem since I'm not the only one complaining of this problem. My last fisher price swing worked for years, and swung kids a lot heavier then 25 lbs. But I have to say I am extremely disappointed in this one. Also, I think the mobile is very uninteresting. They need to add lights and make the animals much more appealing to a baby (sparkles, contrast, etc.)

Great Product for First Time Parents
4 Star Review   By AlexandersMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 15, 2010   

Our son is now 4 1/2 months now and we have had a great experience with this swing. At first he loved the swinging motion (which would put him to sleep), but once he recognized the mobile animals, it made for alot of coos, laughs and fun. We are first time parents and were not sure what product to choose, but we really liked the rainforest collection for its colors and variety of animals. Honestly our son didn't like the swing in the first few weeks of life but once he started to explore, this was definitely a favorite playtime activity, and allowed me some hands free time. The mobile is very cute and goes well with the other Rainforest Products and I find the music to be upbeat and fun. We have had no motor issues or any other problems I have seen mentioned, and have kept our swing plugged in for over 4 months now. We have also used the swing for hours at a time with no problems. Our son is just now slightly over 13lbs and this has worked well and continues to work well for us.

Motor Trouble?
2 Star Review   By Robyn on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 5, 2010   

I agree with a recent post. My daughter was less than 3 months old (now 3 months old and 13 pounds) when it stopped swinging. We thought the swing could no longer support her weight but then tried to run it on the highest setting empty and it barely moved. Not sure if the motor burned out or what. We LOVED this swing and all the great features (especially the plug) until this happened.

Weight not right
2 Star Review   By Pepino on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 7, 2009

Best Gift I received!
5 Star Review   By VaNewMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 4, 2009   

I did not know a swing would be such a wonderful item to have. But the Fisher Price Rain Forest Swing is wonderful! My daughter takes most of her day time naps in it, and she loves the animals on the mobile that hang from the top. (Which can be put in a upward position for convenience) Another wonderful feature is, if the power goes out you still have a working swing, because it can run off of batteries. It is easy to vacuum under, which is a big deal for me. I highly recommend this product to everyone!

Best Purchase Ever
5 Star Review   By ira555 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 6, 2009   

I would recommend this swing to everyone.I also bought it after I reviewed many others. My son is 2.5 years old, 35 pounds and still sits in it and enjoys so much. Now he can belt himself, take off the toys and play with them.It is safe, comfortable, big+ plugs into the wall. Right now I am going to buy it to my cousin too. Irina

Excellent purchase
5 Star Review   By Tinkerbell on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Sep 26, 2009   

I just wanted to add that the only thing I didn't like about this product was that my daughter outgrew the swing in height not weight. Unfortunately this is a common occurence with my children, (outgrowing the item in height not weight.) My husband is 6' 2" and I'm 5' 5". So both of our children have been long. If your family is tall, then don't expect to get a ton of use from this swing. My daughter is now 4months old and we're having to pass the swing on.

Best Swing
5 Star Review   By MimiDaisy on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Aug 24, 2009   

My husband and I purchased this swing second-hand from some friends who were moving. It has worked wonderfully from day one. I LOVE the fact that the music is optional since my daughter seems to dislike it (most music on toys seems to be distasteful to her, so it is not a reflection on the music itself). I also love the fact that it can be plugged into the wall, we have saved a ton on batteries. The fact that the fabric part of the swing is washable was a wonderful thing. For the first few months of her life, our daughter would not sleep any where else. Now, at 6 months of age, she takes her daily naps in it and sometimes starts her night sleeping in it. It has been a life saver for us and we have not had a single problem with it. I do not know how much use our friends got out of it, but their son was a little over a year old when we bought the swing from them and we have used it daily for more than 6 months now.

Great swing
4 Star Review   By BeachMom08 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 27, 2009   

We love this swing! My 9-month old, 18-lb girl takes her naps in it on a daily basis. We took the snack bar off when she was 4-months since she was moving her legs around so much (remove the screws and springs). My only complaint is that the green mesh fabric on the backside has frayed off and she is now trying to eat the stuffing in the seat...I'm sure it's as easy as ordering a replacement part. At one point the motor started to die, but we turned it off and when we turned it back on later that day it has worked ever since. We love the plug in feature...we'd have bought stock in Duracell otherwise! Enjoy the swing!

Love this adorable swing!
5 Star Review   By MalloryMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jul 6, 2009   

We love this swing! It was one of the first items we purchased for our baby girl's nursery. Because of the swing, we elected to get most of her things in the rainforest pattern. When she arrived, she hated swinging in it... but after a few weeks, she loved it, and has loved it ever since! We've had to wash the seat a few times and it cleans up very nicely (either in the machine or hand washed). She's five months old now and almost 17 pounds but still fits in it nicely and loves it just as much as ever before. It does a wonderful job at pacifying her at times and she's able to take a quick nap quite comfortably. The only thing I'd change would be the snack tray... I'm not sure why a swing has a snack tray (she can't snack while swinging) but it is a nice place to sit a toy or pacifier for her to grab if she wants it. I do wish it were removable, however. It does swing out of the way to remove the baby from the seat, but doesn't completely come of. We do love this swing! It's super cute and fits our girl nicely! The sounds and music are so sweet and the rotating seat is nice for giving her a different view.

Not Impressed
1 Star Review   By Happymama on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 23, 2009   

The motor on this swing went out after my newborn used it for 2-3 weeks! I purchased the swing for it's looks, and I wish I had not made such an impulse buy. I had to order a new motor from Fisher-Price, and that itself was a hassle. I also had the same problem with the Precious Moments portable swing by Fisher-Price, which I purchased at the same time. Whatever you do, do not buy this swing!

Gone through 2 broken motors
1 Star Review   By spep16 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - May 6, 2009   

I purchased this swing because of the great reviews i read over the internet. However, i am not that impressed with the swing. i like that you could plug it into the wall, which is great. My daughter liked the mobile alot. After having it for less than i month, the motor started to slow down alot and would not swing my daughter. We exchanged the motor for another one at the store we bought it at, took it home and this motor too did not work very well. We called Fisher Price and they happily sent us a new motor, which we are using now. However, we have a larger 5 month old (18 lbs) so it doesn't swing very much. I just think for the price of the swing $180, is should last and be more durable.

This is the third swing I have used over the years of having four kids. It is by far the best! It is very sturdy and durable. My daughter loves the mobile and the music and I love that the volume is adustable and the unit has the ac option as well as battery. This is definately recommended.

5 Star Review   By MommyJacobs on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Apr 24, 2009   

This swing is the best. I love that its rain forest themed. I love that it swings all directions and is cradle and comfortable. My daughter LOVES this swing, its how we get her down for naps and night time. She is two months old and its the only way to get her completely soothed. I don't want her to grow out of it!! I will definitely be saving this swing for our 3rd child!

5 Star Review   By MamaK313 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 29, 2009   

We bought the Rainforest swing for our son for two reasons: price and the ac adapter. It was important not to have something that only ran off batteries, which would get expensive in the long run.This swing has more than met our expectations. Our son is six months old and he still enjoys swinging. It was a life saver after he was born, he would sit in it while I could get other things done around the house. I will definitely pack it away once he's too big for it and use it for the next child. :-)

Excellent Swing!
5 Star Review   By CKZR on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 14, 2009   

I love this swing because it can be electric or battery powered. I saved so much money on batteries. I think all swings should be this way. The battery option did come in handy during two power outages. I just wish they had something more attractive because I have a girl and it looks more boyish. I am saving it to see if I have another child. Well worth the money!!!!

Nice design, but
3 Star Review   By here2stay on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 9, 2009   

It is a very nice design and swing. It was nice for our newborn, but now that he is three months old the swing itself doesn't want to swing. He only weighs 17lbs at 3 months. We used the electric outlet instead of batteries.

4 Star Review   By gracie on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Mar 7, 2009   

My daughter loved this swing at first. She is now 9 Months and doesn't like to be in it. How ever when she was using it she loved it. She would laugh at the animals while they were spinning around. However the music stopped working on my and haven't been able to get it to work again. However I would recommend this swing to anyone you save so much money on batteries. It was great.

Is it possible to get 2 lemons?
3 Star Review   By CaptainHarrison on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Feb 1, 2009   

We received the Rainforest Open Topswing (purchased at a national retailer) for Christmas for our 3 month old daughter. It was a great product for about a month until the swing quit working. We exchanged it through the retailer, but the new swing we brought home quit working within a week as well. I don't know if this is common, but I based on my experience, I wouldn't recommend the product, especially considering the price.

Pretty good swing
4 Star Review   By Sylvia on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 15, 2009   

I liked the many options you have with the swing, like the speeds, different songs, and switching from front to back and side to side. I'm also glad that you no longer have to wind up swings these days. It it has an AC adapter so I do not have to use batteries. But the problem I had with my swing is that the music starting playing so soft you can barely hear it. Also, my son grew up so quickly that we stopped using it by 6 months, he got too heavy. Otherwise the swing was cute and went great with the whole rainforest theme.

I bought this at my local store and it was display item, it was price great but did not come with paper work on how to work it. I took the chance and bought it anyway and was super easy to use. Great colors, great style, LOVE the option to raise the leafs and animals out of the way to the baby out easy.

Very Nice Swing
5 Star Review   By racinggirl20 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Jan 8, 2009   

We got this swing because of the ac adapter option which was FABULOUS because all of our friends were spending sooo much $$ on batteries. The only complaint I had was the moblie went out onit after a month but I called customer service and they took care of it right away and were very nice. I am very pleased with this product, and so ismy son. I would definately buy it again.

MY DAUGHTER JUST TURNED A MONTH OLD TODAY AND SHE LOVES THIS SWING BUT THE CUSHION FROM THE HEAD IS NOT DEEP ENOUGH FOR HER TO KEEP HER HEAD UP,SO WHEN YOU LOOK AT HER SHE IS SIDE WAYS ON IT. THE MOBILE DOES SOUND LIKE IF THE BATTERIES WERE DIEING AND MINE BROKE JUST RIGHT AFTER I BOUGHT THE SWING, THE LITTE TOYS FROM THE MOBILE KEPT ON FALLING ON HER SO SHE IS NOT ABLE TO ENJOY THE PEAK-A-BOO THING OF THEM LIKE THE DESCRIPTION SAYS BUT OVERALL IS AN OK ITEM FOR BABIES.

Awesome but....
5 Star Review   By Jenerm23 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Dec 22, 2008   

The swing sometimes does not start up unless i turn the music on. I love the fact it can be used with the adaptor or batteries. I have SAVED so much money from this swing by not having ot buy batteries! My son hated this swing at first and threw his arms up in the arm everytime it moved but now at 8 weeks old he is starting to like it. He sleeps in it in the evening so i can have quiet alone time. I wish fisher price made the lamb swing with the adapter because if they did id buy that on as well.

The product looks great and can save you money on batteries. Also the music is not bad and the fabric can be removed for washing. But the mobile broke after 4 months of use. Also although it claims to have 6 or 7 speeds for swinging I didn't see much difference from one to the next. It's more like 2-3 speeds. I would have also liked if the seat alowed baby to sit up straight - my daughter was often trying to pull herself up. For me it's an OK pruduct, but not great.

Mostly happy
4 Star Review   By Blondie24 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 25, 2008   

I have been quite happy with our purchase of the swing; however, we have encountered some issues with the music. It sounds like batteries are dying on it but we are running it off the A/C adapter. I read a review and I will be happily contacting Fisher Price consumer assistance to have this issue sorted out. I am glad someone also posted about this issue.

Re: Worst Purchase
4 Star Review   By ravx25 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 17, 2008   

2Boyzmom, I can appreciate having a bum product, but it sounds like the motor went bad on yours. This happened to ours as well, but after one call to Fisher Price customer service, they sent out a new motor with no hassle. This has been a great swing to us and I would recommend it to any parent. Should you happen to get a bad unit (that happens occasionally) Fisher Price will gladly help you out. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 feet was the small hassle of getting a new motor reflected under quality/durability.

Worst Purchase
1 Star Review   By 2BoyszMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 16, 2008   

We bought this swing mainly because of the options for side to side swinging and front to back swinging. Another plus (we thought) was the outlet feature. Well this swing doesn't work. If the music plays nothing else will. The swing will stop swinging then 30 minutes later try and then fail. If anything is activated with the music, the music will play like its running out of batteries, EXCEPT ITS PLUGGED INTO THE WALL. I have never been more disappointed in a product than I am with this... I basically have to push the swing myself... My son doesn't even come close to the weight requirements either, he's only 3 months old...

Good Swing For the Price
4 Star Review   By m2boys on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 12, 2008   

Although this swing is pricey we got our money's worth. Not only does this swing have the option to run on batteries but also comes with an a/c adapter to plug in! It has a great variety of songs, jungle and animal noises as well as volume range and the mobile can be pulled down for baby's view or pulled up so baby can see around the room. And my favorite thing is that the seat turns to swing baby either side to side or front to back. In our opinion the only downside is that it only holds a maximum weight of 25 pounds or we would still be using it.

BEST Ever Preferred Over Ocean Woners
5 Star Review   By beachloving on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 10, 2008   

When my son was born 4 months ago, I purchased the Ocean Wonders Aquarium swing and was happy with the purchase UNTIL I received this swing as a gift. I like this one SO much better. Both swings have the great cradle seat that swivels, but this one has more seat position options. The aquarium swing has an immobile mobile that hits my baby in the face each time he goes in and out and the removable tray is a pain to snap on and off. BUT this Rainforest swing has a full range mobile that can be moved out of the way and completely back, it has a plug into the wall option and a great swivel seat and Attached tray/ALL wonderful options..I should have purchased this one right from the start!!

Great so far
5 Star Review   By LillieBugsMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 8, 2008   

We bought this instead of another Fisher Price swing and I'm glad we did! Our daughter is almost 3 weeks old and she already loves it. She follows the animals on the mobile and the music seems to soothe her. The music and nature sounds are great, there are 5 different choices. The swing away mobile makes it very easy to put her into and take her out of the swing. I highly recommend this product!

Pretty Colors..
1 Star Review   By MrsTatum on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Nov 7, 2008   

I purchased this swing for my 3rd child and I have to say that I was not very impressed. The colors are beautiful but there were a few things I didn't like. The seat is a frame that the cover slides on rather than a hard seat, There is only one visual stimulie for the baby. I much preferred the Aquarium swing, when the lights were off it had a globe with swimming fish that lit up as well as the carousel of plushies.

Love it, Love it, Love it!!!
5 Star Review   By VickiSt on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 27, 2008   

We LOVE this swing, it was a lifesaver for us...our son loves it...we got it when he was 3 weeks old..he is 6 1/2 months now and he still likes it...when we first got he napped in the all the time...he loves the bright colours and the music..I love that he loves it so much and I love the fact it plugs in..we use it on a daily basis and even too it with us when we went to visit his grandparents 8 hrs away! We have the Rainforest Melodies and Lights Deluxe Gym, as well, which he also loves, if I had my time back, I would have bought the entire collection! Well worth the money!!!!!

Great product
5 Star Review   By Justine on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 25, 2008   

We received this as a gift, and we love it! Our baby has loved it from the beginning and he's now 4 months old. We call it "his happy place." The mobile is very colorful, and we like that it has several different sound settings (so you don't have to listen to the same 4 songs all the time). Would highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a gift.

Could not live without it!
5 Star Review   By MotherTheresa on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 17, 2008   

If it wasn't for this swing, I don't think anybody would sleep at our house. Our daughter has acid reflux and this swing has been our life saver. Hands down our best purchase.

I'm Not Sure...
3 Star Review   By Momto2andbean on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 14, 2008   

I have a love/hate relationship with this swing.. It appealed to me mainly because it can be plugged in. I love that the mobile can be moved to reach baby, and my son enjoyed the leaves and animals. I bought it when my son was 2 months old, and I'd say 2 1/2 months after it was purchased it started to sound like the motor was being worked too hard. (Keep in mind my son was 4 1/2 months and weighed about 14lbs) If the mobile was turned on, the swing would rock slower.. Or sometimes just in general it would barely swing at all and I'm not sure why, but it was very frustrating. The music is okay when it's turned on and then will suddenly start getting louder at certain parts and sounding almost like bass being too loud in the car. I turned it on today and it isn't working at all. Mobile, music, swing, nothing works. My son is almost 7 months and is 18.5lbs .. There is NO way this would work until 25lbs. I had hopes of using this for our new baby come April, but it seems I'll have to buy something else.

A lifesaver!
5 Star Review   By kenziesmom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 13, 2008   

My daughter loved this swing! It is so adorable and since birth she has always been fascinated with all the animals that are part of the rainforest collection.The only way she would go to sleep most of the time was if I put her in this swing. I just wish the music was a little longer. She used it from birth to about 5 months old. The one thing I don't like about it is that it has starting making this terrible loud creaking noise, I don't know if maybe I used it to much or what but we can't use it any longer because it is to loud.

Great Swing!
5 Star Review   By californiaangel on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 11, 2008   

Love the swing and love the fact that the seat cover is washable, but the cover won't stay put... That's the only thing I don't like about it. Besides that it's a great swing!!!

Not for a colicky baby
5 Star Review   By Huntersmama on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 11, 2008   

Our baby had colic and we thought this might help her and us. We bought this for her when she was 2 months old and she couldn't stand it. The leaves and music drove her crazy. It sat in the corner until she was 4 months old. Her colic was ending and she loved it. She still didn't like the leaves and animals going 'round but she did like the nature sounds. She didn't get to use it very long because she out grew it. I would recommend this for anyone who has a normal baby.

Great at the Beginning
3 Star Review   By ReedsMom on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 9, 2008   

This was a good swing. My 8 month old loved the items that were hanging from above. He also enjoyed the sound. It was a great nap time go-to for me. However, it ate through batteries so we always plugged it in. After a few months, however, it started to show it's age. It you had the animals rotating at the top, the swing was slow, sometimes even coming to a stop. Very frustrating. It was also wide at the bottom. Made placement difficult.

It's a great swing!
4 Star Review   By BLTNinNoVA on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 8, 2008   

I really like the swing so did my son but I wished had a mirror so he could gaze and focus more and have different melodies or a way to hook-up mp3 player. Thx, that my rant.

Worth Every Penny
5 Star Review   By Becca515 on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 7, 2008   

My husband was convinced that we didn't need a swing, but after we bought it he agreed it was worth every penny and then some. We always used the side to side motion on this swing, and it always put my son right to sleep. My only complaint is that by 17lbs. the swing is straining, and very slow. There is no way it would work for a 25lbs. baby. However it was worth every penny while it lasted. I also love that it has a plug or battery option.

Amazinggggg
5 Star Review   By KaityBuggsMommie on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 7, 2008   

I loved this swing just as much as my daughter did!! It helped soothe her to sleep on late colicky nights. I love the fact the seat rotates. My daughter enjoyed swinging side to side when she was about 3 months and then front to back when she got a little older. It is study, easy to move around the house, easy to clean, and my daughter loved ittt!!!

AMAZING!!!
5 Star Review   By BonnieKatesMOM on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 7, 2008   

My daughter loves this swing! It is so easy to use. The flip up mobile is really nice for putting her in the swing. We love the fact that she can swing both directions. It is a nice change for her. She loves the music and watching the animals swing over her head. We love the fact that it plugs into the wall so we don't ever have to worry about batteries running out. This is a great swing to put on your registry! You don't want to miss out- highly recommended!

Excellent product!
5 Star Review   By Robin on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 7, 2008   

We love this swing, especially the fact that you have the option to plug in or use the batteries. Our daughter used this swing so much in the first few months. It was a life saver to help sooth her to sleep. I can't wait to use it again for our second baby due in March!

Best Swing Ever
5 Star Review   By TheMothership on Fisher-Price_Reviews - Oct 7, 2008   

With triplet girls, we would have been lost without this product. We simply could not have afforded to feed the battery monster, so finding a plug in swing saved our sanity as well as budget. We ran two swings almost contantly for several months -- the variable seating arrangements kept the girls well entertained and the sweet tunes always were soothing. Awesome product and very highly recommended. Don't even blink at the price . . . you will be overjoyed at the quality.
