Fisher Price Power Plus Plug in Swing


This swing is a must have for any new parent. I spent $119.00 on a Graco swing that ate about 20 D size batteries a week!

With a baby who has colic and the swing is the only thing that quiets them you will gladly dole out that money for those batteries every week.

But my mom found this one and picked it up for me and I was hooked. I gave my Graco swing away because I just didn't think it was fair to charge someone for it. I must have saved over 200.00 in batteries over the life of the swing.

Now when one of my friends has a baby I tell them not to buy battery operated swings but to spend the time and find one that has a plug in instead.

In fact I would go so far as to say that if I could only give one piece of advice to a new parent that would be it "Don't waste your money on battery operated swings." The first time your batteries die at 2 a.m. and you are left with a screaming baby and walking the floors until something opens you will know exactly why I say this.

Fisher Price has this corner of the market. I have not seen any other manufacturers producing swings that plug in.

I know some of you are wondering about safety as well, so I will say this: the Graco swing also got warm where the batteries go and I have never had this issue with my Fisher price swing ever.

Baby swings have come a long way but these manufacturers need to stop lining the battery makers pockets with gold and start making user friendly and cost conscious products.

I don't know anyone who has $30.00 a week to spend buying batteries, but when that's the only way to soothe your child then you just find a way.

We were taking battery donations from friends and family, anyone who was willing to donate even old batteries. We were buying a huge pack every week at Sam's club. It was just ridiculous.
