Let me start by saying that this was probably the best thing I could have bought for my baby. Everything about this swing was great, particularly the fact that it can plug into the wall. The swing operated very quietly, and the music's adjustable volume let's you set it to the perfect level. My daughter loved the swing, and we could not have lived without it.
That being said, I can NOT recommend this swing to a friend. The swing is barely six months old, and the motor quit working today with no notice whatsoever. It worked fine all day, then suddenly, BAM! The swing is motionless. I checked the lights and it was still turned on. The mobile and music still work fine. I've read dozens of reviews from people who have all had the same problem. I understand that nothing lasts forever, but for the price of this swing, I expect it to last more than six months. My wife and I plan to have another child, and we were looking forward to being able to reuse this swing.
Overall, the bad outweighs the good with this product.
