Graco® Glider LX Gliding Swing in Peyton
Great Swing, but motor needs work
I bought this for my son about 6-7 months ago. Recently, the motor died. I contacted Graco and they sent me a replacement motor, free of charge. No hassle. I will admit, I was wary of the Graco brand because of the stroller recalls 4 years ago, but they have won me over.
The swing is great, and my 15 month old son lives it. It's the only way I can get him to nap. It has the option to run on batteries (good of outside) or for the included a/c adapter (perfect for long time use). The assembly was easy (once all distractions where taken care of). The different sound choices are really nice. 16 songs and you can choose white noise, waves, rain, Mommy's heartbeat, or night time sounds. All very soothing.

best thing ever!
Love this glider! Glides so smoothly it puts me too sleep lol. Only flaw is the bar with hanging stars comes off easy otherwise it works great and I haven't had any issues with it what so ever. My daughter is now 4 months old and 14lbs. Had it since I was 3 months pregnant. Great for helping to put baby to sleep on those restless nights.

Motor went out fast!!!
I purchased this swing new one year ago and absolutely loved the gliding motion. I have used the product with a couple of newborns as I am a foster parent who cares for substance exposed infants. The gliding motion was super comforting to each of them. However I went to turn on the swing the other day and the motor was gone. The swing still looks brand new and I am very careful with the products I purchase. I would love to give this 5 stars but for the amount that you pay for it I feel it should last longer than a year, especially when the use was not constant. If you are certain you will only need to use this a couple of months and don't mind the price then this is a great product, just don't expect to use it with more than one little one.

My twin daughters love these swings. The foot print is smaller than a traditional swing, so they worked great for having 2! They have a lot of features, that we didn't even use; music, vibration etc. Also, Graco has great customer service we lost the hardware to build on and Graco sent us the hardware at no cost!

revisiting my one star review
We simply returned the defective glider and the new one worked perfectly! Our now 5 month old son has been soothed by this product since he was born. He was 8lbs and 22in at birth, big boy! And he is now 17lbs and 27in and still enjoying it. The swing range is notably less (4"-5" each way on level 6) now that he's heavier and longer but it's still sufficient enough to soothe. Basically, if your glider is only moving at most, an inch in each direction, return it and get another one! A properly working glider made this mama very happy. And one more thing, it was too cute when he became old enough to notice and grab the hanging hedgehog and stars (we have the Happy Hedgehog print).

We received this glider as a gift for our first baby and we have loved it so far! Sure, little things like the bar not staying in place are annoying, but she never really had any interest in it anyways, so we just have taken it off and left it off. The glider itself is pretty great, swings like a dream. She falls asleep in it during the day for her naptime and it really soothes her with the vibrations. I love the height of the swing itself, not too high that it's obnoxiously big, and not too small that it's barely off the floor. It's a perfect height and size for our very small one bedroom apartment. We had to be pretty picky with the items we chose to have for her and this is one we definately have not regretted!

Awesome For Small Spaces
We got this as a gift and love it. It's easy to put together and our baby loves it. We use the seat regurally by it's self and the glider every day. At level 1 it glides our 14lb baby with no issues! Love it!

I bought this collection before my son was born. The only good thing is the glider still glides but hes only 11lbs so we will see.
-Bar with stars falls forward or backward does not click into each position which is a giant design flaw since this is a glider so with each gliding motion it sends the bar further forward or backward.
-Bar does not stay clipped on well.
-Sound at lowest level is still ptetty loud.
-My swing DOES NOT work without being plugged in
-The vibration doesnt work, never has
Im hoping I can get a refund or exchange from the store I purchased it at because its not worth the money I spent
