The Graco Glider Swing is a unique gliding swing that soothes with the same gentle motion you use when cuddling and comforting baby in your nursery glider. For your convenience, this innovative gliding swing has a compact frame that uses 40% less space than other leading swings, and for flexibility you have the option to plug-in or use batteries. A plush, roomy seat with removable infant supports and vibration will keep baby cozy, while music will keep baby entertained. With the Graco Glider, you have all the features you want in a swing, but with the gliding motion baby loves!

Reviewer’s Opinion

I was very excited to review the Graco Glider Swing chair as I have trouble settling my 6 week old baby down for naps. I loved the look of the chair as I like neutral colours. Two months in we have found some good and bad points. The chair is quite compact and doesn’t take up too much room and it seems to be comfy for us both; my little one relaxes when she is sat in the chair.   like that the chair can be battery powered or plugged in – personally I have the chair plugged in most of the time to save on batteries since they are in quite an obscure place!  The music is not very pleasant to listen to, though. I think if the volume went down lower it would be better as it is just a tad loud to be soothing. We struggled to get the chair to swing properly, but after a lot of fiddling about and studying the instructions we have eventually managed to get it to swing with a bit more power.

Essex Baby Rating

Despite having some really good qualities, the problems that we have come across – combined with the fact we don’t think it is the greatest value for money – have resulted in the chair dropping a couple of points! We have rated the Graco Glider Swing a 3 out of 5.
