Discover n Grow SpaceSaver Swing & Seat Review (Fisher-Price)

What It Is

The Discover 'n Grow SpaceSaver Swing & Seat can be used as a swing or as a play seat with removable toy bar. As a swing, it will play music and parents can choose between five swing speeds. As a seat, parents can attach the toy bar with spinning toys. Parents can also activate calming vibrations that can be felt throughout the seat. Music will also play in seat mode. Making the conversion from swing to seat is easy. To convert from swing to seat, pull down the seat post on the bottom of the swing and slide the seat latch on the front bar of the base up and over the seat post. This keeps the swing from moving. To remove the toy bar, press the latches on both ends of the bar and lift. To reattach the bar, just snap it back into the seat. The Swing & Seat includes a five-point harness to keep baby secure.

Why Is It Useful?

Parents will like that the SpaceSaver Swing & Seat is a two-in-one product. It is easy to convert and lightweight for portability. The toy bar will keep babies entertained as they sit and bat at the toys. And the swing is a great way to soothe baby to sleep.

Who It’s For

The SpaceSaver Swing & Seat is designed to be used from birth until the child is able to sit up unassisted. The maximum weight limit is 25 pounds.

What To Be Aware Of

Adult assembly is required. It took us between 30 and 40 minutes to assemble.

Four C batteries and one D battery are required but not included.

The pictures and information on the packaging seem to imply that the vibration feature is to be used in swing mode. The instructions say that the vibrations will not work in swing mode. The vibrations worked for us in swing mode, but the vibrations did cause the swing to make a mechanical sound.

The seat pad is machine-washable and dryer-safe.

When using swing mode, give the seat a light push to start the swinging motion. It may not swing unless there is a child in the seat.
