Product Specifications

There are 6 swing speeds in total available with the Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing, so it can be adjusted to swing according to your baby’s tastes and needs. The seat can be reclined into two different positions and the restraint has three points for added security.

With its classic and sturdy two footed design, the Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing will stay stable even at its fastest swing speed. The cute little veil hanging from the top, gives your baby a sense of privacy and safety.

Meanwhile, a mobile, decorated with soft star shapes, keeps them enchanted and entertained. This mobile is battery powered, too, so it will turn round of its own accord, in time to the music.

The maximum weight that your baby can be when using this swing is 25 pounds. Be aware, too, that heavier children will slow the swing’s speed slightly. Once your child is situated inside the swing and you have selected the speed and music settings, you will need to give the swing a light push to get the motor started.

There is the option to plug this cradle into the mains instead of using batteries to power it. If you are using battery power to operate the Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing then the mobile, swing, and music will all switch off after approximately 7 minutes.

This can be an asset, though, if you are using the swing to lull your little one to sleep: the fact that it switches off automatically means that you do not need to turn it off manually once they have drifted off.
