4moms Baby Swings Reviews: Top in 2020
1. 4moms rockaRoo – compact baby swing with front to back gliding motion
Look at the appearance, you will find it is more modernize compared with other brands. And it is the character of all 4moms series products. It imitates the motions when mom soothing baby in arms and so it glides from front to back.
5 speeds settings on the control panel, but there is actually only one speed, and the swing speed is quite fast, suitable for fussy baby but not for all babies. The seat is fixed and no reclining option, suitable for napping but unable to sit up straightly.
The size of which is 3 times smaller than over size types, therefore it can be a good space saver. The built-in speaker is excellent and you can also plug your phone onto the machine for playing music.
The seat fabric is easy to move and is machine washable. But the creak clicking noise can be much annoying, the hanging ball is unable to rotate. It is plug-in operated, saving much money in buying the battery, and has no battery setting.
2. 4moms rockaRoo Baby Swing – Multi Plush
This kind of swing machine is actually the same as the grey one, but with a plush cover. And extra money is charged for additional plush cover. But the plush is quite thick and unable to hold the baby up.
Like classical grey, it rotates from head to toe, just like mom hugging on the chair. Plug-in set makes it more saving on buying battery frequently. But once you assemble the machine up, it may be hard to move.
This one is excellent for indoor use but can hardly be used for traveling, because it unfolds and not portable enough.
Because of the small size design, it is really suitable for small space, though owning all the functions full size types have, it only occupies three times smaller space. So if you want a good looking baby swing with small shape, this can be perfect choice for you.
