"I do not generally write negative reviews, but I feel it is important to tell others that this cute little seat literally sucks the batteries dry in just a few days! It is a very well designed seat otherwise. My son absolutely loves it, but we were running through batteries weekly. It is very wasteful, not to mention bad for the environment. We ended up buying rechargable batteries, but we are constantly taking them out to recharge them. We had the rainforest chair for my other son, and it did not have this problem."

I like that it elevates baby without over doing so. It will allow your LO to sleep sound if they don't like being flat on their back, has gas, or acid re-fluxed. Even with elevation baby can stretch and kick comfortably. It doesn't bounce so you can put baby in it after meals and won't have to worry about spit up.
What I don't like:
Dragon fly overhead doesn't do anything, like spin or light up. If it was a working mobile overhead I would rate 5 stars."
"We used this seat since the day my daughter came home from the hospital. She fits in it perfectly and the vibrations and music help keep her calm so that I can get some things done while she watches me. I love the fact that it's lightweight. I had a c-section and couldn't lift much for awhile, but I could carry my daughter around comfortably in this from room to room. I did experience a little problem with the vibrating part not working at times. This is the only reason I gave it an average rating- other than that, I love it."
"I got this seat as a gift at a baby shower in May but didn't end up setting it up until recently, as I had originally purchased the whole Rainforest Collection bouncers, swings, etc. for my twins. We needed extras for Grandmas house...so we finally took the Zen Collection seat and swing out of the box and set it up at Grandmas.
The Zen collection swing was great (other than a weird clicking noise as it swung)...but the seat was very tempermental. From the moment out of the box, it decided to have a life of it's own...it would work if it felt like it. We put batteries in and it was great...for a few minutes. Then it just stopped working. At first I thought my batteries were bad, even though they were brand new and came straight from the store, so we changed them. After we changed them the vibration and sound and music worked fine for a few minutes, but after turning it off and then later turning it back on it wouldn't work...AGAIN.
I decided I would replace the motor, since it's replacaeable piece through Fisher Price. I've rated it negatively because I feel like you shouldn't have to pay to replace a part on a brand new item that really didn't work from the get-go. After the new motor comes in ($20 with shipping!!) we'll see how it goes."
