Fisher-Price® My Little Sweetie Deluxe Cradle Swing
My daughter loves this swing and I would have liked to give this a higher rating, but the motor is not very good or reliable. At first this swing worked great but after only 2 months of using it the motor went. Not worth the money and truthfully, I think the swing moves too fast even on the lowest setting for an infant. I plan on bringing this back to the store since it's now useless. Note, this takes up a lot of floor space and the legs stick out very far. Many a family member have tripped over the protruding legs.

Daughter loved it
We used this swing for my daughter from the day we brought her home from the hospital up until she was 6 months old. She loved being in it. We had her in it for hours at a time while swinging. It did go a little fast when she was a newborn. As she gained some weight it started to slow down to a good speed. I just added some blankets on it to weigh it down when she was very light. Overall great swing and I hope it holds up in quality so I can use it with my next child.

Wish I could assemble it....
Absolutely love the look and sturdiness of this swing, however, I cannot even assemble it!!! There's excess metal in the screw holes and the screws WILL NOT fit! While trying to put the feet on the leg bars, the screws won't get past the first turn, so I cannot attach them. I don't know what to do because if I leave the feet off, it will lose the stability. Such a pain, and with my due date in less than 5 days, I'm not about to go to the store to exchange it. Especially when I'll most likely have the same issue again. Needless to say, I'm extremely disappointed that I can't even use the swing when I bring home my daughter!!

Best customer service
I received the My Little Sweetie Cradle Swing as a Christmas gift for my first daughter two years ago. It has worked perfectly fine for over a year. I then had my second daughter and proceeded to use it with her also because I loved it, and also both of my daughters. Unfortunately the motor in the swing stopped working and I had no clue what to do about it. I looked up the reviews and apparently I was was not the only person with this problem. So I called customer service and they were amazing and sending me a new swing I will stand by fisher price forever.

My 5 months old daughter absolutely loves this swing. She just loves to stare at the mirror above. Great for naps. Best swing ever!!!

Absolutely Love This Swing!
This swing is probably one of the best purchases we've made thus far, for our baby girl. Not only is it absolutely adorable, but the functionality of it is impeccable.
At first we didn't want to be one of 'those parents' who got everything girly, but after seeing it, we couldn't resist! It's ridiculously soft all over and has soft colors --perfect for baby. The cover of the seat comes off so it can be washed. It cradles her perfectly all around -unlike some swings that seem more like chairs, this is like a little baby cup. It has a gushy little head pillow for her comfort, and adjustable straps.
There's a little mobile with a mirror in the middle. When she was finally old enough to see it, this became her favorite entertainment. And there's nothing cuter than seeing your baby 'talking' to her reflection.
True to the description there are three different positions for the seat (forward facing, or facing each side) that are switchable with a single button; and two reclining positions (more sitting up, or laying down for little naps).
This swing has TONS of tones to play, from music, to nature, to water, to bird calls -all with adjustable volume. And while the music will eventually stop, it only does so after about 20 minutes, so you don't have to run back and forth putting it back on every few mins.
There are 6 different swing speeds - though personally, I've never had to put it past '3', since it's perfect speed for my little girl. When you set the swing up, it appears to take up a bit of space, but it doesn't. The legs make a circle, and the space it takes up is sort of like a big sphere - but, they give it a lot of stability, which is something we were concerned with when shopping for a swing.
I'd have to say the best feature though, that we were very hard-pressed to find with any other swing, is that it plugs in! Her bassinet had a similar sound /vibration machine on it, and after going through batteries by the dozen we knew, in the future, all her products needed to plug in. There is, of course, an option to use batteries, if you were bringing it along and didn't have a power source. The fact that it plugs in makes everything SO much easier. It not only saves a ton of money -which, as a parent, has become very important; but, it also saves us the trouble of a cranky baby who wants to go in her swing but we're out of batteries.
All in all I would definitely recommend this swing, or it's counterpart (the boy version) to any and all new parents/grandparents. It's so comfortable for baby, and now that she's around 4 months, she prefers to take her naps in it while mommy does work and chores. Just having a few moments to yourself, and knowing that your little one is snuggled up and happy is amazing.
The one downside to this swing -they don't come in adult size. :(

Baby loves it
As much as I think the swings these days are over priced and too big, I have to say it was a great purchase. I broke down and bought it, much to my own dislike. I love it because the baby is so comfortable in it. It is even very, very nice looking in the home, to my surprise. Hate the price, love my smiling baby.

Started out a pain in the butt to build. It is a great swing and love it's features though price was high. Now less than a month later the motor is slowing down. Awaiting a response from Fisher Price.
