My Review of MamaRoo Baby Seat - Red

Originally submitted at Toys R Us

Weve never seen a parent vibrate their child like a bouncy seat and hardly seen one swing a baby around like a swing. But, weve seen thousands of parents scoop their little ones up in their arms and bounce and sway. And thats what the MamaRoo does. It moves like you do. Some seats claim two motions...

LOVE this thing!

Pros: Multi-functional, Strong Construction, Stylish, Compact, Lightweight, Easy Use

Cons: Uncomfortable, Bad Mobile, Stiff Fabric

Best Uses: Daily Use, Newborn, Infants

Describe Yourself: Parent of Multiples (Twins etc), Parent of Two or More Children

We love this thing. Our son love sleeping in it. IT's so functional, but takes up so little space! Love all the movement functions and the ability to customize the intensity of the movement. We also love the built in sounds/white noise; this alone makes this product worth the money. The safety belt's design is also great. I like that I could strap my babies into the seat with a blanket or baby gown and they were still secure.
Our only complaints were:
-Wish it reclined just a little more
-The mobile is pointless and mainly just gets in the way
-Wish the the seat fabric was softer/more plush like the Fisher Price Little Lamb Cradle n' Swing

Those are only minor complaints though. I love this item and would not trade it for a swing.


My Review of Tykelight GloMate

Portable rechargeable night light and fun light. Led light creates no heat. 5 modes, constant blue, green, red, 15 minute dimmer, auto multi color change. Safely recharges automatically while on base.

Great but unreliable!

Was this a gift?: No

We own 2 of these. One my 3 year old sleeps with. It's easy to use and he loves it! We've had this one for about 4 months after upgrading from the old version. We bought another for our twins' room, but it stopped working after a few weeks of use. Unfortunately it is an item that we bought on our registry months ago and just opened it recently so it's past the store's 90 day return window and past the manufacturer's 90 day warranty. Very disappointed. IF you get one that works, this product is great! Needs improvement.
