I was not seeing any issues with anything breaking on this swing.  On the contrary, parents comments voiced  that this swing is durable.  Here is one of the comments on the durability of the Fisher-Price Deluxe Take Along Swing and Seat,

"Even though I have only had the swing for a few days, I have taken it outside, to the kitchen, and even up the stairs to occupy my baby while I cleaned! It is so light (yet very durable) and is a breeze to set up one handed."

Ease of Assembly

The comments on how easy this swing was to put together were overwhelmingly positive. Here is just one of the many comments on assembling this swing,

"I assembled it myself in less than five minutes. It is easy to clean and is very light weight. I highly recommend this product."

This swing has a 5 point harness system to keep your baby safe.  Parent liked that this swing was safe for their little ones.  It also is close to the ground so even if an accident occurred, there simply is not a way for this swing to topple over like a larger swing might. Many homes have older kids and pets running around.  Accidents do happen, but with this swing I would think an accident would be minimal if the swing got knocked over somehow. Here is what one parent said about the safety factor of this swing,

"The swing has adjustable straps to secure your little one for safety and mine looked very comfy and was asleep pretty quickly.  Overall I highly recommend this swing, it's a great addition."

Ease of Transporting

One of the nicest things about the Fisher-Price Deluxe Take Along Swing and Seat is that, like the name implies, you can easily take it along with you.  This swing folds up quickly and can be easily carried.  This is nice for moving from room to room or taking it with you when you travel.

The manufacturer lists this item as weighing just 1 pound with dimensions of 20 x 20 x 6.5 inches.  This baby swing really is compact and lightweight compared to other swings on the market.   Here, a daycare provider comments on the size,

"This is a wonderful, portable swing! In my daycare the kids are always playing with the normal sized swing and it's too big to set out of the way... With this swing I can bring it to the room I'm working in and the baby is content to be near everyone but safe in a comfortable swing with toys he can reach easily. And when not in use, it can be set out of the way easily!  Highly recommend for people with limited space!"

Parents liked that you could use this product as either a swing or a seat.  By just inserting a little tab into the bottom of the swing, the seat will stay stationary.  Here is one of the comments on this popular feature,

"Another nice feature is that it isn't just a swing; you can also use it as a seat. It's very easy to take apart. It's "cushy" and appears to be comfortable.


For the price and compact size, this baby swing is a winner.  It is easy to put together and durable.  I can't think of what more you'd really want in a swing.  It has the features that other swings have such as sounds and vibrations, without the bulkiness.  I would think the compactness of this swing would mean that you could take it with your almost anywhere, and hence get more use out of it.  I can't see where you could go wrong with buying this swing.  Customers who bought it had a lot of great things to say about the Fisher-Price Deluxe Take Along Swing and Seat. I hope my review helps you as you think about purchasing a baby swing for your family!
