It's a God Send but not if you need portable!!!!,
This review is from: Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Cradle Swing (Baby Product)
I was given this item as a present from my Mother in Law as my child had very bad colic and would not sleep for anything or anyone.
This was the only thing my child would go to sleep in and even after the colic passed at 3months my child still likes to be put in it to have a nap!
If he get fed up swinging from side to side i change it and he swings like a proper swing and within 5mins my child is asleep. He loves watching the changing lights in the globe and the stuffed toys that spin around like they are swimming and are bright and eye catching.
I can change it from music to rain noises or crashing waves this has made this item still usable as he doesn't know what he will hear next and because its all like white noise apart from the music side he just drifts of to sleep.
I will be lost when my son is to big for the item which is quite soon.
The down side to this item is my son was not able to reach the sliding toy bar on the removable play tray until now(5 1/2 months) and he has only a couple of weeks left before he is to heavy for item( max 20lb )also the item is is very bulky and does take up some room in the house but it can be folded(only side ways)
So if you need to have something portable that doesn't take up much room this is not the item for you, buy the smaller folding Fisher Price swings that will be better if you need something a bit more portable but the down side to them is they do not have as much options to keep your child occupied as this one.
