Bottom line

Consistently one of the most loved baby swings on the market, the Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing receives accolades for the plush fabrics and three seat directions that can engage baby in upright play or promote sleep. Reviewers love the option of using battery or electric power, yet some found that the swing takes up a lot of space and wasn't fitted with a strong, reliable motor.


Supportive, with minor issues. The Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing features a plush head-to-toe body support pillow and five-point harness. The swing's wide, steel frame base is designed with sturdy grips, yet some parents say the legs can shift while the swing is in motion. Fisher-Price says the swing is suitable from birth until babies become more active, but some reviewers mention that the speed seems too fast for infants. The maximum weight capacity is 25 pounds.


Soothing and appealing. Reviewers find that the Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing offers a myriad of features to satisfy both baby and parent, including six speed settings, choice of side-to-side cradle or head-to-toe swing motion, and the ability to easily change the direction of the seat to one of three positions with the press of a button. Plus, parents note that babies love the 16 songs and two nature sound options. Owners are pleased with the design of the swing and agree that the circulating mobile and mirror stimulate baby's senses. It's reported as easy to assemble.


Motor life span is inconsistent. The Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Cradle 'n Swing has machine-washable padding, but a few reviewers mention that it can be hard to remove. Parents find the life span to be limited, noting that most babies outgrow it before six months of age. The swing can be operated by electric or battery power, but some owners say the motor stopped working after a short time. The swing comes with a one-year warranty, and although Fisher-Price customer service offered to replace the faulty motor when contacted about that issue, the part was often on back order, resulting in a long wait time.
