I received this as a baby shower gift from my Mother. I had never seen anything like it before.
This seat has a base that stays in position. The seat can turn in any direction you wish without having to pick it up. It has handles on each end of the cradle part that makes it easy to pick up and carryied I am very impressed with this seat. It really can replace the baby swing if you wanted it too. It runs on batteries, which I have only replaced once in a year. My daughter is petite made but has long legs. She is 13 months old and still uses this to take a nap now and then. It is definitely a much appreciated gift. I have taken this with us on trips instead of a pack-n-play or swing. This took the place of both. I also have taken it with me when I work at our Church fundraisers.
My daughter looks so cozy and almost "swaddled" when she is in the glider. I am on child 3 and really wish they had things like this when I had my 9 year old.
The color is very pleasing with neutral colors that would go well for a boy or a girl.
I have heard some people say that they have thm and thing the motor is too loud. I haven't had that experience with this glider at all.
