But is there anything people don’t like?

Main Features of the Fisher Price Rain Forest Swing:
Baby swings and other baby seats can sometimes be awkward to use. But this swing makes putting baby in and out it a simple and easy job.
Because the mobile moves completely out of the way – you don’t need to get into any weird positions to get your little one into this swing.
Plus, there is no risk of bumping your baby on the mobile as you pick him/her up from the swing.
There is no doubt about it – a swing that plugs into the wall will save you money on batteries and you won’t need to worry about the batteries dying on you at the most inconvenient time. (That’s what usually happens, right?)
You do have the option to use batteries which is nice if you move the swing to a spot where the power cord does not reach or if you take the swing with you to a park for a picnic.

Who is the Fisher Price Open Top Cradle Swing best for?
Pros: If you are looking for a full size swing that is bright and colorful, plugs in, offers both side to side & front to back swinging options and has a mobile that moves out of your way for getting your baby into and out of the swing seat, then this cradle swing is for you.
Cons: There were some complaints that the mobile is loud and some said they wish there was a volume control on the music. Others liked the music, so this really is a matter of opinion.
Others commented that this swing was not the fastest/strongest swing. While other swings may swing faster (some have complaints about going to fast), as long as your baby is happy, then it shouldn’t matter how fast or slow the swing is going. I have always found it best to turn the swing on and then give my baby a push to get it going, rather than using the motor to get the swing going. A blanket hanging over the front can create “drag” and slow a swing down for a tiny baby.
Conclusion: this swing is a great choice!
