We've had a few swings before this Monkey & Mouse one. Cheaper models have faded, frayed, cracked (plastic) and have had questionable manufacturing instructions written in broken English which had me worried overall about safety. Totally different experience with this purchase. It arrived in record time (well before when Amazon said it would), had some thoughtful packaging, and is clearly made of high quality materials with very simple to understand instructions. It took about 5 minutes to put together. BEST OF ALL was our daughter who is 18 months old absolutely LOVES it. Depending on the time of day, she either starts squealing with excitement walking towards it saying "up up", giggles to herself the whole time she's swinging, or gets heavy lids and has even fallen asleep in it around nap time! I'm new to Amazon and don't normally take the time to write these reviews, but really impressed with this swing and wanted to share my experience with other parents who are looking to find something similar.
