With a turn of the seat, you can soothe baby with two different ways to swing: side-to-side cradle-like motion or head-to-toe swinging motion. Six swing speeds, eight songs (soothing and playful), and two sound effects. Motorized mobile entertains baby from overhead. The toy tray is removable. The seat reclines to two positions and the seat pad easily removes for machine washing. Sturdy steel frame folds for storage. Power options: the swing has a plug-in option and comes with an AC power adaptor, to save you money on batteries; or, you can operate the swing using four D batteries (not included).
