The 4moms mamaRoo is an expensive, yet attractive and stylish, baby swing that has terrific curb appeal. From the smallest surface footprint (400 square inchest) in our baby swing review to an MP3 plug-in for your own music selection, the 4moms mamaRoo will appeal to the modern family who is apt to select high-tech over old-school. 4moms markets the mamaRoo as a having a more natural soothing mechanism, one that simulates a parent bouncing their baby up and down while swaying from side-to-side instead of vibrating bouncers and traditional swings. Although every baby is different, we aren't convinced that the majority of babies needing soothing prefer this over the tried and true front-to-back or side-to-side swinging motion of old standbys. After all, swinging is one of Harvey Karp's 5 S's.
4moms has released the mamaRoo4. This new version of the mamaRoo features 50% increased speed, a new LCD control panel (below left), and the and ability to connect via bluetooth to a handheld device so you can control both sound and motion and speed remotely (below right).
