  • Plays MP3s and is bluetooth-enabled for remote motion and sound control
  • Mobile toys and seat fabric are removable and machine washable

This is a high-tech bouncer that is designed to simulate the motions parents do when comforting their newborn, and the popularity of this product speaks to its effectiveness. This swing can simulate a range of motions—a car ride, a tree swing, a gentle wave, or the bounce of a parent’s arms. It can play built-in sounds or connect to an MP3 device, and the motion, sound, speed, and volume can be adjusted with a phone or any Bluetooth-enabled smart device. Also, it got enough votes from parents to win its way to the top of our Best Bouncers and Swings guide.

The seat keeps babies secure in a three-point harness and can recline. A mobile toy hangs above the seat, with removable, machine-washable plush toys attached. The seat fabric can also be removed and washed.

What's the difference between a bouncer and a swing anyway? Swings like the mamaRoo have machine-powered motion where bouncers like the bounceRoo respond to your baby's movement and are powered by inertia so they have fewer bells and whistles.

P.S. This seat is the talk of the town, but a potential downside is the price tag. 4moms makes a less expensive but less full-featured swing called the rockaRoo.

While my baby really enjoys this machine, the price tag is still simply too high. Also, like many other reviewers, the mobile bar doesn't fit in the hinge correctly and hangs extremely low...about 6 inches from my baby.

We tried to put my son in this multiple times for nap time or to chill, and he screamed his head off every time. I've heard that others love it so we'll keep it just in case the next baby is a fan, mostly because it was expensive and a gift. Right now it's packed away because it took up so much room.

This was the only way my little would sleep for the first two months, unless we held her. It was a godsend. Do yourself a favor and just spring for it. Out of all the items we bought/received, this was by far the best thing. I would pay full price all over again had I known how invaluable it would be.

Motion didn't always soothe baby, and grew out of it pretty quickly for the cost.

Our daughter loved this and slept well in it as a newborn, it's nicely made and looks good in the home. Only con is that our daughter only used it for a short amount of time-- maybe 4 months or so.

It doesn't have a natural swinging motion. This was a bummer because it didn't soothe my daughter. It has a modern look, saves space, and is easy to use; however it is missing a few key components. You have to buy the infant insert for it to be "comfy" and it doesn't provide a natural swinging motion that many babies love and need for soothing.

I loved that it doesn't take a lot of space. We have a very limited space in our house and it was such a great fit! Loved how it moves, and love the sounds. I would recommend getting a newborn insert as I found it a bit uncomfortable for a tiny baby to lay in it without anything tucked under him. Great product overall!

You don't need it! It's useless for a colicky baby! Save money and buy a cheap bouncy chair instead.

My favorite feature on this swing is the bluetooth control. It was amazing being able to adjust the speed without having to bend down after my C-section. This thing is amazing and it has a small footprint - great if you're limited on space.
