My daughter loves to swing, and one of the swings we have in our home at the moment is the Fisher Price Aquarium Swing. A friend loaned this to us, and since baby swings are so expensive we really have appreciated it!

This is a very low profile swing, and the base extends far under the swing seat itself making it very sturdy. It also folds up very flat, making transporting easy as well. In fact, this is called the Fisher Price Aquarium Take Along Swing.

There are a few features that I really like about this model. It takes 4 "C" sized batteries and has eight different speeds with are controlled on the right side of the top. Our 7 month old weighs about 15 pounds and the swing has no problems moving when she is in it. On the left top side is a control for the music and the lights. You can turn on just the music, with a handy volume control near by. You can turn on music and lights, which randomly illuminate four bubble lights above baby, in colors of red, green, yellow and orange. If you switch it to the last mode the lights flicker and you get a gurgling or bubbling sound.

On each side of the swing are little plastic fish bowls filled with blue water and each one contains a plastic fish. Hanging down from the top are two plastic fish colored orange and green, and these are attached by a short elastic cord. These are just within my babies reach, but she gets frustrated because she can't grab them.

I love the low profile on this swing! There are straps to secure baby but if she were to fall out she would not have far to go. Overall, I give this product high marks.

Versatility
So many different features on this swing kept my granddaughter entertained

Durability
Handed down to three kids, I'd say it was very durable!

Ease of Use
Easy to set up and use, but the belt in can be an adjustment to secure

Safety
Very safe, low to the floor

Features
A lot of music, flashing lighs and other things to stimulate baby

I recieved this swing as a baby shower gift from my grandmother. It was one of the items I listed on the babies r us website for baby shower gift.. Went with the fish theme I had chosen for my daughter. When I had my daughter she spent hours in this swing. She loved it. The draw back is be prepaired to buy lots of batteries. I recently had another daughter and had saved the swing to use. When I went to change the batteries the inside where the batteries are replaced where corroded with rust. After my husband scubbed them clean with a wire brush it seemed to work fine until one day I decieded to move her to another side of the room. I picked her and the whole swing up and put her down on the other side of the room. Well the swing stopped working. I checked to see if all batteries where in place and they where. We ended up taking it apart and finally finding a lose wire. It is still working today.. But its a shame they made it so cheap... Also do not like the fact that you have to unscrew the clips just to cash them.

I love this Swing. It works great.

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

This swing was given to me by some church members and my baby loved it. I think it was all the bright colors on the swing it just made her so happy to get to swing it this swing. it has a few different settings, high, medium, and low. My daughter would usually fall right to sleep after I put her in it.

Durability
It can't really be used for much more than swinging, but I have tried feeding my daughter while she was sitting in the swing awake. That did not work very well because after all it is a swing and it moves so I got baby food everywhere that day.

Ease of Use
It is a very small swing. It doesn't take up much space and can easily be moved and closed up, when not being used. its also very easy to transport around. It fits in the car very well.

Safety
I never had any problems with the swing not being safe. the seat has a little safety harness in it that keeps the baby in place.

Features
The swing has different speed settings and also plays music and makes noises. My baby loves to swing in this swing. The batteries also hold up pretty good depending on what brand battery you buy. It usually last about 3 weeks if your using the swing everyday before the batteries go dead.

Not my favorite

By

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

We have 2 swings and I like my other one a lot more!

Versatility
This swing doesn't do much. The toys are pretty bland.

Durability
I bought mine used and it is in very good shape still.

Ease of Use
It is hard to get baby to sit up in the swing.

Safety
The swing tilts forward a lot. If baby is not straped in, she would probably slide right out.

Features
There is nothing really special about this swing. I have seen better features on almost all other swings.

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

We used this swing first in the hospital then once we came home as well. The hospital we stayed at had one and since we were there for 70 days my son got to use it a lot. My mother in law had bought us one for home and it is the best thing ever! We travel a lot in the summer and it is so nice to have a swing that I can fold and pack to take with us.

We Used It a Ton! Loved it!

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

I didn't start to use this Fisher Price swing until my daughter was about four months old. I wish I had started using it earlier, but I didn't think she'd like it, and she really liked to be held/carried. So most of the time she was wrapped up on me, but at four months she was getting heavy enough that I needed to put her somewhere while I made dinner, etc. This swing was perfect! She always seemed secure and I never felt unsure if she would slide out or it would tip over. She loved the lights and music, which aren't terrible as baby musical sounds go. The high setting of the swing is a little too much for a small infant, but the slower setting would put her right to sleep. Some swings have a timer and will shut off, waking the baby, but this one would go and go as long as I needed it to. We didn't have the instruction manual, so when I had to change the batteries (which was after a long amount of use) I could not for the life of me figure it out. I had to go online and find the battery hold, and it was still hard to get into. But thankfully this thing runs for an eternity on one set of batteries. The cover is not too hard to take off for cleaning, and it does fold down nicely if you choose to travel with it. Nice and compact, it fit easily in the kitchen (or bathroom to take a shower).

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

The Fisher Price Ocean wonders Aquarium take along swing is indeed a wonderful product. My 6 month old grandson really enjoys it. The bright colors and all the touch and feel items keep him entertained. And he even bounces himself in it. I can let him sit in this near my sliding glass door and he is able to see outside. He also sits in it and watches television with his older brother. The Ocean wonders is small enough to carry everywhere. Both my daughter and I have one.

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

I got this as a gift when my 1st son was born in 2005. I kept it in my garage until my second son was born, 2010, & it held up! music still plays (batteries were left in it and it still worked!), swings perfectly, lights all still work, easy to clean. Sooo cute!

My kids did not like the Ocean Wonders travel swing

By 

from Scottsdale, AZ

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

This swing is very cute and a great idea, so I gave it three stars. In reality though, we only used it a total of about three times over three children. My kids just did not like this swing. When we had our first baby, we had a rather small house and a regular size swing would have taken up a lot of the living area so we decided to get this instead. My son hated it and cried any time we tried to put him in it. We ended up never putting him in it and only used the Ocean Wonders bouncer chair, which he LOVED and never needed a swing. I thought this would be a great product to take along to Grandma's house if we needed to, but we never did. There's already so much gear that a baby needs and Grandma always wants to hold the baby anyways. We moved into a larger house before our second baby was born and ended up using a full size swing for him, which he loved. I ended up selling this swing to a children's resale store and can only hope that there is some baby out there that will love it.

Pretty good swing for occasional use

By 

from Lompoc, CA

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

We had this swing for our kids. It's great for occasional use, but not long term use. Mostly used for traveling or in the bathroom when showering where big swing wouldn't fit. Has really cute fish on it and nice bright colors!

Good swing for small living spaces

By 

from Raleigh, NC

Comments about Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Take Along Swing:

I borrowed the Fisher-Price Aquarium Take Along Swing from a friend to try out a swing before purchasing. I don't know if I would actually buy it, but I'm glad to have it on loan and it's been pretty good so far. It's a nice size - lightweight and easy to move from room to room, and doesn't take up too much space. For some reason, the swing function didn't work when we first got it from our friend, but the lights and music worked - and then a couple weeks later the swing started working, so who knows what happened. Anyway, the baby did nap pretty well in it, so for that we're satisfied. I agree with those who have said the faster swing speeds are too fast - I don't even want to try anything above the lowest speed. I also agree that the music is rather weird and annoying. No offense, Fisher-Price - I think you were going for soothing, but to me this music sounds depressing, so I try to avoid using that feature.
