BabaBing Rock Out Rocker, Teal
Got better as son grew older!
This was ok with our newborn, although he looked a little lost in it and didn't seem that comfortable. He's just started to enjoy this a little more at 13 weeks old and is transfixed by the dangly toys! The toys can be removed too, and we hang them on the pram and playmat. He sleeps in this now during the day. My main criticisms would be that my son cannot rock the seat himself and he gets quite hot against the fabric.

Good but some serious design flaws
We had a pretty good experience with the rocker for the first few months however there have been some issues as she got older so I've split everything out:
Smooth rocking motion, wonderful for getting the nipper to sleep early on. 2 seat positions and it's a deep seat so baby fits snuggly and can't roll out of the side. Main part is machine washable and colour doesn't run. Flat packs well if you're short on space.
The toy bar slides easily and my baby would end up pushing/kicking it off. The velcro straps aren't very adjustable, you can attach it higher but once you move velcro up there isn't enough sticking together to hold the straps securely. My biggest issue is with the velcro straps in general, my baby could peel them open at 3 months - I spent so much time re strapping her it was ridiculous. At 5 months she managed to undo them, reach forward and fell head first out of the rocker with only the harness to hold her in from the waist. Thankfully she only bumped her head lightly and I was there when it happened to grab her straight away but I can't help but think that this is a pretty bad design fault - it should have a full 5 point harness clip system like other models. I know it's not recommended to leave a baby unattended in any rocker, but realistically you shouldn't have to put a baby in the cot every time you need the bathroom/want a cup of tea for fear that they will fall out of a rocker/bouncer they are strapped in. If/when we have another child I'll be purchasing something far more secure... this one is going in the bin.

We had this bought for us and we loved it! It rocked my little girl to sleep when tired and she could sit more up right when she wanted to be nosey. The fact that it is collapsible was a real bonus and it meant we can could hide it away when not in use. The stability legs were handy when weaning when she wasn't quite ready to sit up in a high chair. We washed the covers and they washed well without running. The toy bar was fine, but she wasn't too interested in the actual toys. We have passed it onto my brother, and he has been positive about it too. Would recommend!

practical and comfortable
bought 2 of these for twins. like how it easily stores away and is easy to alter height. its very sturdy and comfortable. both girls suffer from reflux so putting them in the rocker helps to keep their food down, easy to clean though when they don't ! nice smooth rocking movement but has the flexibility to be a solid platform for feeding. very pleased with purchase and would recommend.

Bought this bouncer based on the positive reviews. I ordered two for twins, not yet born. The toy rail for one is hopeless, it moves far too much and would cause a riot as it would end up sliding down the frame, it's too wide for the width of the chair. The second one has a much better toy rail, there's the movement you'd expect from the instructions but it also stays put where you want it, but there's a dent in the metal frame. I so wanted these rockers to be perfect as the style is great but it looks like we will be returning them.

Being first time parents we researched every type of rocker and the market and we couldn't be happier with our final choice! Our daughter absolutely loves this and has done from being about 2 weeks old.
Getting her in and out is done with ease, and once she's in we have peace of mind that she's not going anywhere as she's safely secured by the comfortable harness. She loves playing in the rocker with her little hanging soft toys on the toy bar. But also it's great for mums and dads wanting to rock baby to sleep, once asleep the rocking motion can be stopped by releasing the 2 legs securing the rocker into place.
All in all a fab product which I can't rate highly enough!

Bought this rocker the other day and I am really pleased with it. My little boy is only 4weeks old and though tiny, fits really securely in it - the harness seems safe. There is a good smooth rocking motion which sends him off to sleep in no time (hooray!) I really like the fact that the toy bar can slide up and down so that it is close to him. I also like the idea that I can put it more upright for when he is older and wants to have a look around or for feeding which will come in very handy. I have also collapsed it easily enough and it slides under my drawers out of the way when not in use as believe me, with all the baby stuff I have enough clutter!! Overall, very impressed with the product and I'd definitely recommend it!
