Do not buy this item!!! I didn't research this product before purchase and bought it based only on the good price. It says it's for infants up to 25 pounds. The swing swings fine when there is nothing in it, but as soon as we put my 10 pound nephew in it, it won't swing at all, on either of the settings. This was a complete waste of money and I will be taking it back.
My husband bought this swing for our daughter who was born 4 weeks early this swing Tuesday September 25th, 2012! I put it together on Wednesday September 26th. Says it has 5 Speeds That is joke, more like one.. My daughter only weighs 9 lbs and the swing would not swing her at all.. The only thing that worked wonderful was the music.. I thought it was the batteries at first so I replaced the batteries still the same thing.. It swung good with no weight in it.. Needless to say I took it apart and carried it back to Wal-Mart.. Very disappointed!!
At first I had the same issues that others had with it not wanting to move when my 4 week old son was in it. But I made sure that the seat level was exactly the same and then it moved a little when he was in it. So then I got out the WD40 and greased up the swinging parts on the legs and oh my god I love this swing. Once I did that it worked wonderful. I am so glad I thought to do that before I sent it back to the store. My son fits in it just fine with out his head going all crazy. The other person who said this must not have had it leaned back all the way. The only thing I don't like on this swing is that the mobile doesn't spin by itself you have to turn it for it to move. If it wasn't for this swing I would still be holding my son while he screams and trying to rock him. I put him in this swing and it makes him go to sleep almost instantly.
I wanted this for my 3 month old but it doesn't recline enough for him. He just falls forward. This would be good for older babies tho. I ended up returning it.
This swing has overall worked great the only problem with it is that the motor on it is soooooooo LOUD, at least on the one I bought I did however only pay like 38 bucks I'm wondering now if I got a returned broken one because of the motor being so loud. Needless to say my 10 month old does not fall asleep at all when rocking in it.
I have been reading the reviews for this item and I can say one thing, they are true! Please do not waste money on this product! This was a gift from my mother-in-law. She bought this with a lot of sacrifice and it was a total disappointment. My daughter was born at 8 months, so she does not weigh what the other comments state their babies weigh. My 1-month old daughter does not even weigh 8 pounds yet and it will not move with her in it! When I read the other reviews I had to laugh because I imagine all those mothers in my same position. I was shocked to see the swing move with absolutely nothing in it, but once I placed my baby inside it would not move. As for the 5 speed setting, it is also a joke. It does not matter in what setting you put it, if it moves at all it is very very very slow. My daughter barely even notices it. She will scream her little lungs out, and inside I am doing the same. I was so happy to receive it as a gift because that would mean less time rocking my baby to sleep, but because of this product I am still rocking my baby back and forth. The only thing that works great is the music, but she does not care. She wants to feel movement! I checked that everything was correctly put and that I reclined the seat correctly, but nothing. In order to keep her happy I have to manually move the swing while I sit for a little while or take a break to eat dinner. Taking it back! I hope this review helps many other mothers not to make the same mistake. I would recommend spending a few extra dollars for a better swing than having to go through all these troubles!
Wouldn't swing and music wouldn't shut off
recipient was very satisfied
Overall great purchase
speed control did not work correctly and also batteries did not last long. we returned the swing and they gave money back promptly. Which is a plus for WalMart.
Do not buy this swing! The swing will not swing with baby in it! Luckily the swing was easy to put together however it doesn't take away the fact that we wasted time putting it together and taking it back apart. The swing works fine as long as nothing is in it but as soon as we put our 10 lb. baby in it, it wouldn't move! Swing only operates off of batteries and the large expensive ones at that. We purchased Rayovac and then Energizer batteries but still the same outcome. We ended up finding a used older swing that plugged up for $40 at a local thrift store which works great! Don't waste your time!
that swing can,t even push my 6 pound 14 ounce baby that's ashames please take it off the shelf I should had read the comments first
It does not swing very good. It uses 4 D batteries, but that does not give it enough power to swing. Barely moves. I bought it for my granddaughter and she is less than 12 lbs and it would barely move and sometimes not even move at all. I took it back. I would recommend an electric swing.
Love, love the little swing, only wish the little animal mobile on top turned on it's own.
so far it is working well.
My son is almost 10th now and it doesn't swing him at all I even bought high dollar battery
I don't like it
