Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier! We purchased this swing about 3 months ago. I did extensive research and read many positive and negative reviews for many swings. We are very happy with our choice. We use the plug-in option, and really like that it fits in a more compact space. We love the reclining seat positions. We tend to use it laid all the way back as our 4 month old son tends to fall asleep in it for his evening nap. But now that he's sitting up, he will probably use it more in the upright position. We've never had a problem with the swing not swinging. But having read many of the negative reviews, we paid special attention to putting the swing together and making sure the leg frame was fitted correctly. We only ran into one problem a couple weeks into the use of the product... the sound went out on it. As I had registered my product right away with Graco on-line, it was a breeze contacting them. I emailed them about my problem. Within 3 days I received a response telling me they were sending me a new motor. They didn't have the motor that matched my swing in stock; so they sent me one that didn't match right away so I had functioning sound and swing. They placed and order for a matching motor that arrived about 8 weeks later. I was impressed. Many of the reviews I had read said that dealing with Graco customer service was a nightmare. I didn't have any problems, Graco was great!! The only reason I didn't give this swing a 5 star review is because it's not perfect. Honestly, nothing is. Over time I've noticed the vibrating seat makes an irritating rattling noise. It's the same whether the low or high vibration is used. It didn't used to make the noise when it was brand new. But the noise is not very loud, and it doesn't bother my son. After all, there is a vibration motor that shakes a metal tubed frame. I think some noise when using the vibrate function can be expected. Overall we're very satisfied! And when I look at other baby gear products, I tend to look at Graco first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this glider! I bought this four months ago after trying at least three other swings/gliders and this one is by far the best. My only complaint is the toy bar. It is very flimsy and when you adjust it at all most times it comes unclipped and falls right off. I love that it plugs in so you never have to worry about batteries. I tried a couple much higher priced swings as well as neither compared to this one

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work! My personal Graco Glider never worked. Whether I used the plug in or battery option it would only swing for a few seconds & then stop. The music box sounds like it was hit with a baseball bat. The only option that works on the whole glider is the vibration part which only works with batteries. I am very disappointed in this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We really like this glider This glider has been great for us, we used it several times a day when baby was very little & it was great for getting her to sleep. She is now 7 months old & 17 lbs & it still works great & swings well. We don't use it as often as we did for the first 3-4 months, it is more for fun or to hold her while I do something, but still useful. I have never had any problems mechanically as some other reviewers have posted. The little toy bar with the hanging toys does fall down kind of easily but we don't really use it anyway. It also fit very well in our smaller sized living room, as opposed to some of the swings. Overall was a very good purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little guy loves it!! So I one of those people who reviews thing a lot before I purchase it because I want what I buy to be worth it. Well after all the non stop reasearch for the right swing I was going crazy, so my boyfriend decided to take over. He did very well with this he found this and did his research and decided to buy it. Our son love this he actually like to sleep in it more then he does his expensive bassinet we brought him. He loves the water sounds and the swing doped on either 1,or 2. We love that it plugs in but hate that you need batteries for the vibration to work. Since it does have a cord you doexpect it to be long but it really isn't and I hope in newer models they change that. We have had the glider for 3 months now and we hope we use it for a long time, and be a me to use it when we have a third child.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Target Broke it during shipping It was pretty easy to put together as far as baby items go. The music was awesome and not just a little piece of a classical melody but a fairly long segment. Our swing did not swing with the baby in it- she is only 11 pounds and well under the weight limit. I want to get this from somewhere else- every time Target ships me something they arrive broken or missing parts if at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy Swing We have two of these for our newborn twins. Once you get past the speed of 3, it really makes a lot of clattering sounds. I've double checked the assembly, seems that there's "play" in the rear arm that snaps together. I have a bad feeling that we'll be replacing these long before our kids are ready to be done with them. My other complaint, two different power sources needed. The AC for the swing and DC for vibration and the battery compartment is buried under the fabric... just a pain in the butt when time is short because of the twins.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

 

What it is: Graco's new line of gliding swings mimic the sensation of rocking back and forth in a glider chair. Unlike classic baby swings, which can be a bit jerky, the gliders move in a fluid motion that may be more appealing to sensitive babies. The Glider LX offers all the functionality of the Glider Elite – a very welcome plug-in option, six gliding speeds, two vibration modes, music, and sounds – but doesn't have a removable bouncer. (That's why the LX is slightly less expensive.) Like the other glider models from Graco, the LX is significantly smaller than a classic baby swing, so it's a nice option for parents with limited space.

 

What to watch out for: The difference between the speeds is barely noticeable. Speed six feels a little frantic and one barely moves, but the rest feel pretty much the same. While the sounds are okay (except for the waterfall, which brings to mind a running toilet), the music is awful – tinny, piercing, and annoying. (You can mute it, however.) Finally, if you like the concept but don't need all the bells and whistles, check out Graco's less-expensive gliders: the Glider Petite LX and Glider Petite.
