When I first found out my wife was pregnant first thing that came to me was how can I afford to buy all the stuff a baby needs, I don't want it having cheap stuff, it needs to be quality, so when it was time to buy the swing I saw this one at toys r us but the ziggy zebra version for a massive £99.99 which seemed incredibly steep even
For the quality and amount of extras you get with it. Anyway so after searching the web I found the hedgerow version for a mere £54.99 on eBay all brand new in box so I ordered straight away. 4 days later it turned up.
It comes totally flat packed and you have to put it up from scratch which I was dreading I'm one of those that delves in without reading the instructions, but this time I did and was I glad i did, after about 15 minutes me and my wife had it up and working, it was the simplest thing to put up ever, then just 3 D batteries in and away it goes.
I was amazed how good the quality of the sound is for the songs, one thing I was slightly disappointed with was the nature sounds, the one which I believe is meant to be water sounds more like a chainsaw.
The soft toys hanging on the mobile above are a great effect and the two toys in the tray stand are a great distraction for baby Kian, he loves playing with them as he's swinging, I also feel he is very safe in it as the tray opens easily but is secure when shut and it had a 5 point harness system in place. I love all the detail even down to the caterpillar on the head cushion.
When kian is in the swing he doesn't want to come out, I mainly use speeds 1 - 4 I find 5 and 6 are a bit to fast.
Overall brilliant swing, easy to put up, baby loves it and I would even say it's worth the £99.99
