The Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Cradle n' Swing is another swing in the very popular line of Fisher-Price cradle swings. This unit swings baby in two directions; back and forth and side to side. All of the Fisher-Price cradle swings receive rave reviews from many professionals and parents. The Ocean Wonders version, however, has some different features that may be important to certain parents. First, like the Fisher-Price Rainforest Open-Top Cradle Swing (*Est. $120), the Ocean Wonders version folds up for easy storage and might be a good option for those dwelling in smaller spaces. Second, the swing is equipped with interactive toys, including a motorized mobile, flashing lights, a water globe, a bead bar and toy fish. Parents say their older infants really like these playful features, but as newborns, many of these babies were overstimulated or frightened by these toys. Parent reviewers recommend this swing for babies are old enough to play and interact and not for newborns.

Reviews at 3Luxe.com are very brief and entirely positive; the Fisher-Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium Cradle Swing is one of their top three picks for baby swings. There is little justification for why this swing makes the cut, but editors do echo parent reviews when they note older babies will enjoy all of the interactive toys.
