Fisher-Price Open-Top Cradle Swing

Updated on March 23, 2015

Fisher-Price Open-Top Cradle Swing

Secure your baby into the Fisher Price Open-Top Cradle Swing and let him enjoy the comfy and cozy seat while rocking softly under a canopy of an active rainforest. He will entertained by the animal's activities and the soothing sounds around him.

You need time to take care of some duties around the house or simply to take care of yourself for a few minutes. When the little one is particularly fussy, or just wants to be held or carried around, it can be difficult to get any work done. Babies demand so much attention, but at times, you have to put them down and get things taken care of .

That's when the baby swing becomes so useful. Babies will love being rocked gently and entertained by the animals. While baby is distracted by all the sights, sounds, and movement, you can tend to your duties or relax in a nice warm bath.

The baby swing has got to be one of the best inventions ever developed. When our children were infants, I doubt that we would ever have been able to get anything done around the house without one of these baby swings. Many times, we couldn't get them to sit by themselves for even a minute without the soothing, swinging motion from sitting in the swing.

This is a good overview of the features of this cradle swing. It is jam-packed with features despite is modest price. Compared to other more expensive baby swings, this one really does a lot.

      I really love the vibrant colors of this swing, and it would not bother me if the colors clashed with my home's décor. The motif of the toys on the mobile is really cute and I do thing a baby would enjoy watching them move around. All the other features also seem great, but I especially love the soft, cushy padding that surrounds the baby. Seems like this swing would be a great choice!
