abunda_amazon_reviews Ok folks!....So based on all the problems listed in multiple reviews...i was SUPER skeptical about purchasing this swing. So skeptical in fact...that i decided NOT to get it, but then a family member got it for us. So here's the lowdown so far: -Shipped on time. -No missing pieces, and all the pieces are in good shape. -Super easy to put together...im a 5ft tall woman and i did it myself with children in tow in under 15min. Instructions were common sense & easy to follow. -It's not a compact swing, but im actually surprised how well it fits in our small apartment. It's an airy design, so doesn't really disrupt our open floor plan. -The patterned part is that soft plastic-type fabric, easy for cleaning spit-up off of. I am a little disappointed with the other fabric. It looks minky, but the feel is actually more like a rough felt sort of. But does feel like it's made to last at least. -The little bears are cute and i was surprised that he immediately fixated on them and seemed to like them. -He's been in there for mere minutes and is already asleep...i can't even believe it. I'm just sitting here watching him in awe that he's sleeping without an hour and a half of me having to walk him around...breaking my back. -It does sway ever so slightly when it's on the max speed, but it's a safe, reasonable and minimal amount imho. -It's not silent...it does make a side to side noise like all swings do, but again, I find it to be a normal amount...isn't waking baby up, and i think we'd sleep through it fine, as it's steady white noise. -There were complaints that's the seat tilts to the side, ours doesn't. -There were complaints that the legs don't sit flush, ours do. -There were complaints that the seat is too shallow...i find it to be an appropriate standard shaped seat. My 5 week old fits fine and seems will grow into the seat well enough. -So far it doesn't make that horrid creaking noise I've heard in videos...but that seems to start afterwards, so I'll update this post if it starts. -I'll also update if the motor slows or dies like others have said has happened. So! ...as of right now, it's looking good, and hoping it stays that way! UPDATE: Baby is now 10 weeks and has gotten big and heavy. We've had to upgrade our go-to speed from 4, to now a 5. So the people with BIG babies who say the machine barely swings...I TOTALLY believe them. I'm guessing we'll be maxing out the speed soon ourselves. The machine makes the occasional clicking now, not super often, and I think I know why. One day the machine was swinging and baby was in it, and my daughter leaned on the swing (which was stopping it from moving, while the motor was still running) to put the baby's sock back on. THAT'S when the slight clicking started. Couple weeks after that...my daughter got a basket ball stuck under the swing while it was moving...and the clicking got slightly worse. I constantly have to remind my husband to TURN OFF the swing first...because he makes the swing stop when he deals with the baby, and I cant imagine thats good for the motor. The sound is getting worse each time something like that happens. So im willing to bet that a lot of the people who say they get really bad clicking after a certain amount of time...might be harming the swing in this same way. Has the swing been worth it? YESSSSSSSSS. Omg. It has SAVED us on some really bad days. So worth it. UPDATE: Baby will be 12 months old in a couple weeks. It's finally happened...the swing is making that loud, continuous creaking noise. Loud enough to wake baby up if there's no music or white noise to drown it out. Such a big heavy baby now though, it's no surprise that the swing finally can't quite keep up. The heavier he gets, the more wobble is in the motion of the swing. But overall, we're not only happy with how the swing has helped us...I wish I would have bought a second one for Grammy's house. After all the stress of deciding whether to buy this thing in the beginning...turns out it was the #1 best thing we got and the one thing we couldn't live without.

However, when I am up at 4am on baby duty and simply just want to watch the news while sipping my coffee in peace, this machine is so loud that I can’t hear the TV. I decided to take it apart one morning to figure out why it clicks so loudly. I found that the motor rocking the swing is not fixed to anything and relies on the molding inside the plastic housing to hold it in place. This wouldn’t be much of an issue if the motor fit was snug, but there is unfortunately a tiny amount of play causing the motor to “click” against the housing with each rock. The motor must be the same motor used in other models because it has bolt holes around it for mounting, but they were not utilized for this model, probably to save manufacturing costs. I went out to Lowe’s and purchased M4 bolts, washers, and locking nuts. I drilled holes in the molding with the housing and was able to fix it in place with 1 bolt.

Decent, but creaks loud after time.
This worked great, but after six months of use it creaks really loud when it swings. Luckily it seems to be consistent enough that our kid is still able to crank out a power nap in it. Attached a video to show what I'm talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars

Fisher-Price SUCKS. This Graco should have 'Beastmode' as one of the speed settings. Worth. Every. Penny.
I have three kids all of whom were swing babies. With each baby we had two swings - one for the bedside and one for the living room. Needless to say, we have way too much experience with infant swings. After dealing with the crappy engineering of various Fisher Price swings, specifically, Little Snugabunny, Starlight, and Zen Models, I was not going to make the same mistake with my third baby. All three had super loud motor clicking sounds, the metal frames all creaked and could never find a proper balance even on a hard flat surface, and the motors all pooped out after just a couple months. So, we have technology to build particle accelerators and stealth bombers but making an affordable plastic swing that has one main function is too much to ask. I read that the new models inexplicably have auto shut off features which, to me, is confirmation that the R & D folks are all either male and childless or just plain sadistic because what kind of monster creates a machine to sooth a cantankerous baby by is rhythmic motion and sound and then suddenly shuts off at 3am thereby waking the beast and causing mommy to inch one step closer to wrist restraints and confiscated shoelaces? I digress... This swing is far and away the best of the bunch and actually does what it advertises. This thing is a beast and has even survived my 3 year old trying to swing from it. It is quiet, never gets out of balance, and has good speed variability. The pad is easily removable for the many times that your baby will have a diaper blowout or puke or both. Worth. Every. Penny.
