Easy and Awesome

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

My son and I both really love this swing. We had to buy it suddenly as a replacement for our other swing. (he got to heavy for the batteries to swing him) So of course the fisrt thing I rave about is the plug in feature. i have saved SO MUCH on batteries. It's been wonderful. Not only does it continuously swing, but it also plays music (with adjustable volume) and spins a mobile. The music and mobile are on a timer. i can't remember the exact amount of time, but i think it's about twenty minutes. It came with a detachable tray which also has a little something for him to play with on it. The seat is hard plastic with a removable (and washable) cover. The seat can be sat up or slightly reclined. Those are the only two positions. But I love the fact that we can spin his seat. he can swing side ways, back and forth, and diagonally. Even when he isn't swinging, it's helpful to be able to turn him towards me while I'm doing things around the house. I love this swing. Well worth the money!

FP Swing Waste of Money

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

Bought this swing brand new for my newborn baby and it stopped working when he was three months old. He was 16lb. The weight limit is 25. I tried returning the swing but, being that I had owned it for over 30 days, I could not. I was stuck with a broken swing and a sad baby.

Versatility
The swing has three positions and lays back which was nice for the short time that it worked. It also folds up easily for storage.

Durability
We did not get to use the swing long enough to really decide if it could take a kicking from a bigger baby. It just stopped working one day out of the blue. The motor just burned out and it was not used very often.

Ease of Use
Easy to use ( again when it worked) seat belt is simple and start button is easy to find.

Safety
I would say over all, this product was safe. I have been concerned about the day that the motor stopped and wondered if there had been a possibility of shock or fire. However, none of these things happened. So I would say it is safe.

Features
Great features, nice soothing music and several speeds of swinging. it also has a rotating mobile and a tray with an activity toy attached.

Best baby purchase so far!

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

I bought this for my second daughter and she loves it! I love the fact that you can plug it in so you don't have to spend a lot of money on batteries. The seat positions are pretty good too, it lays back enough to cradle a newborn but also sits up for older babies to play with the toys on the tray. I also like the safety harness, it is secure enough that baby will not fall out while swinging & big sister (who is sometimes too helpful) can't get it undone. The mobile part is great as well, keeps baby entertained with the toys & songs, but I wish the toys were plush instead of the hard plastic. Controls are easy to figure out. Love the rotating seat. Cover is easy to remove for cleaning. The most important thing to me is that my daughter loves this swing. Sometimes it is the only way she will sleep & its great that it plugs in so I don't have to worry about batteries going dead. All around great swing. I will definitely keep this one for any future babies we may have!

finally some sleep

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

When my daughter was first born, putting her in this swing was the only thing that would get her to go to sleep. If she was fussy I put her in the swing and she was out within a few minutes. I recommend this product to any parents. The swing plugs into the wall so no need for batteries.

Versatility
I love that the swing moves all the way around. I can push the button on the side and turn the swing whichever way I want my daughter to face.

Durability
Very durable. The seat is well put together.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use. Just buckle the baby in and set the swing however fast you want the swing to go. Then you can turn the mobile on or leave it off.

Safety
This swing was great for my daughter up until she was about 8 months old and she started using her legs more. Now she is 11 months and she can pull herself up with the mobile and stand in the swing.

Features
I am happy with all the swing settings. You can set it to go slow or fast or anywhere in between. You can put the mobile on but it does not have to be on all the time. There is a song button too.

Wonderful product!

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

We purchased this swing for our first son and he absolutely loved it! Was great to be able to let him swing in it while I made dinner, did chores, etc. He would swing for quite a while and be very content. The detachable tray is also helpful as the child starts eating snacks and such. I was able to use the swing as a highchair when we were on vacation because we didn't have room for an actual highchair. Our newest little baby is loving it as well. She will often fall asleep (and stay asleep!) in this swing. She loves watching the mobile and listening to the music. Very nice song choices. This is also a very safe swing. The straps and tray provide a great place for mommy to let baby swing without worrying about her safety. The pattern is fun and the animals on the mobile are very colorful and capture your baby's attention. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a little one!

Love this swing!

By 

from USA

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

This swing is fantastic!!! It has different songs and noises as well as a great little mobile (which spins slowly) and mirror. My son absolutely loves to looking up in that mirror and laughing at himself. He simply loves being swung in it. I'm pretty sure it extends his nap times too! I also love that it is electric and you do not have to worry about batteries for it.
It is convertible with two angles to sit. One more reclining and one sitting up (though still reclining slightly). The play tray is removable, which I like, because since we use it so often it would be too hard to put him in there all the time with it on. Just be SURE that all fingers and skin are clear before the tray is snapped back on. I can only imagine that would pinch terribly! The little bar has three little objects that slide back and forth on it, but there is always room for a couple toys.
It's a great buy!!

Versatility
Though if you want one to travel with, just get a travel swing.

A nice gender neutral swing that will never need batteries.

By 

from Nashville, TN

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

My favorite thing about the swing is that it plugs into the wall and will never need batteries. It is very cute, and it would work for either a boy or a girl. It does take up more room than I would like, and it is not easily portable from say home to the office or to the grandparents' house. It's easy to move around your house, but not to load into a Nissan Sentra. The only other problem I have with the swing, is the seat seems to be more upright than on other baby swings I have used. I think this makes it harder for the baby to fall asleep since he is basically in an upright position as opposed to reclining back. It would be nice if there was a way to adjust seating position.

Versatility
I like that you can make the swing go back and forth or side to side. Very easy to switch back and forth.

Durability
I haven't had any real problems, but it does lack an certain element of quality that I can't quite articulate. Maybe it's just because the plastic seat isn't totally covered by the cushion, or maybe it's because the cushion is not quite as soft and plush as I would like. It also has a tendency to squeak if you set it on the highest swinging speed.

Ease of Use
My 3 year old figured it out about as fast as I did.

Features
I do enjoy the music selections, and the turning mobile is a nice feature. I wish the seat was a bit softer.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE this swing

By 

from Shelbyville, TN

Comments about Fisher-Price Luv U Zoo Plug-in Swing:

I cannot say enough great things about this swing. It's awesome. We got this when our daughter was about 4 months old and she outgrew her glider. She is 9 months old now and still using it. The motor in this is wonderful. It says on the box and manual up to 25 pounds but she's over 30 and it's STILL swinging her like there's no tomorrow. She loves the mobile on it and the mirror dome in the center. The animals on the fabric are super cute. She loves them. It swings in 3 positions which I like. 6 speeds and songs she likes. I love that it plugs in b/c I hate battery swings. I've never used this with batteries so can't comment on that. If I want to use it outside I take it out and plug it in to an extension cord. She sleeps in this quite a bit b/c her reflux. There's a 20 minute timer on the songs and mobile. The pad is soft fabric and cushy. The tray doesn't get much use but I like that it comes completely off unlike some of the other Fisher Price swings. I will hate to get rid of this swing but we've gotten our money out of it.
