I got this swing from a second hand store. My son loved it at first and would sit in it for ever if I had let him. Then as it wasn't new anymore, he started to lose interest. I was sad because I really loved the swing. Only bad part about it was that it was terrible on batteries. I had to change them (4 D batteries) about once every 2 weeks. It got really Expensive. THe dome mirror above the baby really let them see themselves and a lot going on around them. The swing had many different types of sound and music options. (birds chirping, music ECT.) The swing also could swing from front to back, or side to side. My son only liked the side to side option. The legs folded in if you ever wanted to store it in the closet or whatever. We just kept it out at the end of the couch. It doesn't look tacky or anything like that. If my son was screaming, we could put him in the swing and within a minute is was relaxed and cooing again. The tray had a few toys to play with on there, nothing too special, my little one just slapped the tray around really. Overall this was a good purchase and I would consider getting another if I have another baby one day.
