We are considering the 4Moms Mamaroo for our swing. However, we have some concerns. Some of the reviews that we have read have indicated that there are a couple of safety problems as the kid gets older. Namely, hands can apparently reach the ‘no fingers’ parts of the device, and older kids can lean forward and reach the controls.
This is a fairly innovative product. Rather than swinging, it mimics the motion of a swing by moving left to right and up to down, and has several different swing motions as options.
Our inclination towards this swing is pragmatic, as it has a very small footprint, allowing it to fit in small places — a distinct advantage over many of the larger swings. Do any readers have feedback on the Mamaroo product?
Here is a youtube video by a fellow blogger, illustrating how the swing works.
