We are fans of Combi products. If you own Combi baby gears, then you know why. Their products are compact and well made. Having own a number of Combi products for baby G and DD, we are excited to have received the Yurikago Swing to add to our collection of Combi baby gears. When DD was an infant, we had a couple of baby swings for her. They were ok, they worked but they were not something that I would go out of my way to recommend to other moms. I got rid of them after DD became too big for them. Then when I was pregnant with baby G, I got a couple of swings as gifts. These were similar to the old ones DD used. They worked, but there were nothing special about these swings either.
The Combi Yurikago Swing is nothing like the average swing you see in the stores. I know they all look similar, but this swing is different from the rest. This swing comes with 6 different speeds and 9 songs. It comes with 10, 20 and 30 minutes timers. It also comes with a removable toy bar along with a 5 point harness with padding. But, what I like the most about this swing is that it comes with a remote control. That's right, it comes with a remote control! When my husband saw this, he commented, " Wow, this is a swing made for lazy parents." Alright, this when I threw my husband a dirty look and defended my awesome new swing. The remote control is not made for lazy parents (or moms), it is made for busy parents. There had been times that the music stopped or the swing stopped swinging because the timer was up, but baby G was still awake and he became extremely upset by this sudden change. There I was, across the room with a pile of cloth diapers on my lap as I was trying to put the inserts in, or I was busy helping DD with her books. Instead of putting down whatever I was busy with, I was able to just push the buttons on the remote control and the swing went to work. Happy baby with just a touch of a button!
The swing folds down to a compact size and it is light weight enough for me to carry. We travel with this swing (when we visit out of town family members) and it has been so useful to have around.
Baby G in his awesome new swing. His big sister wanted to be in the photo too, so here they are.
Baby G being very happy and content in his swing. He is so happy in his swing that it allows to get work done around the house :).
All in all, I am very impressed by the quality of this swing and we (the baby and myself) could not be happier.
To buy the swing we received to review, please visit the Combi online store.
Many thanks to Combi. The company has generously offered 1 Yurikago Swing as a giveaway prize to one of my lukcy readers (US residents only please). This swing retails for $100.
