View Full Version : Evenflo Soft & Sturdy Swing - TERRIBLE!

All I wanted was a simple swing that perhaps played music and blended nicely with the normal furniture/decor - no duckies or bears.

The Graco swings were either heavy on features I didn't want or were downright ugly. I thought I'd hit the jackpot with the Evenflo Soft and Sturdy swing in Woodland.

Until we put it together and used it, that is. The thing doesn't swing well...you have to give it a push to start and it eventually comes to a rest when it's on. And I can't tell any difference in the speed settings, either.

The worst part is the noise -- the swing mechanism is terribly noisy...this isn't just low-grade noise, it's can't hear yourself think kind of noise and definitely not something to calm a baby!
