We loved this chair! Our twins both took turns using it. One of them was a very fussy baby that required a lot of stimulation - so the music and vibration were a must. Our other twin is a very big guy - this chair was one of the biggest we could find. It held him well until he was old enough to sit up on his own. The chair was very sturdy. The cloth held up well to washings. For the amount of time we used the music and vibration, it didn't eat many batteries.
