What reviewers didn't like

In swing time making noise
There are reports that this swing makes loud creaking noises after normal everyday usage
Mobile doesn’t move independently
There isn’t much newborn head support. There’s a chance your smaller baby could have their head tilting to one side while they sleep.
The vibrating sound seem too noisy
The mobile. The attachment is very bulky and awkward looking. I know that this is really a non-issue, but for some reason I couldn’t get past it.
Some complaints of the swing creaking loudly when in motion
A buyer of the swing set said that after just 60 days of use the motor started making some very weird sounds.
Takes a lot of room space
Boring colors
Some users complain that the noise level of the motor is too high, especially when the swing is on the full speed. There seem to be lots of rhythmic creaks and humming, though this seems to be something that bothers parents more than the baby.
It's pricet and the swing takes up considerable floor space
It produces loud noise when swinging
The product’s music is a bit too loud for a baby swing and rocker and stands a chance to wake the baby u immediately after soothing him into sleep. It could also be disturbing to the baby making him uncomfortable on the swing and rocker.
It’s pretty heavy to carry.
