I got this swing as a gift at our baby shower.
Even then I was not thrilled with the colors...they are very bland, all beiges and light yellow and blue..even the toys that hang down are these pale colors. Don't get me wrong, this is VERY cute, just not what I prefer. I prefer something that attracts the baby's attention more...bright vivid red, blue, green, yellow..you know what I mean!
It is a nice travel size, easy to fold, carry and pack. I really like the music that it played, it wasn't twangy like some of the others I've heard.
The speeds are adjustable ( theres a dial) and theres a timer you can set..I did keep having to turn the music back on though it doesn't play for long.
The fabric has a nice feel to it and is easy to clean.The papasan style seat holds baby well and seemed like it was more comfy for him than the swings I have used before(with my other kids). The seat reclines to a few different positions also. It has a five point harness type "seatbelt" which also made me feel safer about putting my son in the swing.
When my son was 2 months old he really liked it, after that he wanted more to look at...and he HATED the straps/harness. He would only tolerate being in it if it was nap time.
I noticed that sometimes the swing would barely move even though the batteries were new. And the music started to shut off and the swing would stop for no reason.
Another issue I had with this swing, if the toys were attached and the swing was going the toys got kinda close to baby's face! He didn't like that.. So most of the time we used it with out the toys. Even when the swing was NOT rocking and baby was just sitting in it...the toys seemed way to close.
I don't know what the exact weight limit for this swing is(I keep thinking it was 20-25lbs)...but when my son was about 17 lbs the swing just would not rock anymore...You know...Boppy has such a reputation, I guess I just expected ...MORE...I was not impressed much with this swing.
So the music was soothing and pretty, it is a convenient size, if you like the pale colors then the colors are ok, it was comfy for baby..the actual seat has a good design...this swing just wasn't my favorite.
