Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing - My Little Lamb

The Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing is phenomenal! I am giving this a HIGH five-star rating! We used to have the older version of this swing, the Nature's Touch Papasan and loved it. We purchased that one five years ago and the motor just went on it and we needed a new swing for our five month old.

We tried another swing from Fisher-Price, see review of Ocean Wonders Swing, but were very disappointed. The My Little Lamb swing is a wonder for any baby. It surrounds them in plush softness and has so much width and space for them to get comfy! This is what a REAL papasan swing is meant to be! It has plenty of music options, a rotating mobile with a mirror, and the ability to swing either side to side or front to back.

Literally, the only drawback to this swing is that is doesn't have an A/C adaptor option. Invest in a lot of batteries, buy them in bulk if you have to, but don't miss out on this sensational swing which your baby will hardly ever want to leave! I want to get in it and snuggle up myself! Do they make these in adult sizes????

Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Cradle Swing

When our Fisher Price Nature's Touch Papasan swing's motor recently burnt out, we were faced with the immediate need to purchase a new swing for our five month old. Keep in mind, we bought this swing for our, now, four year old when he was a baby and it's lasted this long.

However, we needed a new swing and FAST. So, we read some reviews and decided to purchase the Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Cradle Swing. In all honesty, the only reason we chose this particular swing was that it came with an A/C adaptor and we liked the idea of not plowing through batteries any more.

We made a HUGE mistake. I am giving this swing a two star rating. The swing seems very cheaply made first off. I was very surprised as I am normally a huge supporter of Fisher-Price products. When I went to put my son in the swing, it is extremely narrow. So much so, that his arms hung over the sides. On top of that, there is a bar which MUST be between their legs which isn't at all comfortable. When I turned it on, I had to use the highest setting for my 14 lb. baby and it barely swayed. The weight limit is for babies over 25 lbs., so this didn't make any sense to me. Needless to say, we took this swing right back and purchased the Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing - My Little Lamb, which we should have purchased to begin with. Back to batteries, but well worth the switch back. Please see our review of this product.
