 Bright Starts™ Sunnyside Safari™ Portable Swing Review

Having never had a portable swing for J-Girl and totally regretting not having one to use I was thrilled to be asked to review the Bright Starts™ Sunnyside Safari™ Portable Swing. We have had success with toys from the Bright Starts™  company but had never used their larger baby gear in our home before.   With Baby Boy arrival drawing closer I was so glad to find a cute, functional and portable swing to use from such a trusted company.

Assembling the swing was so easy!  I wanted to put the portable swing together the moment I received the shipping box so that big sister and our fur babies would get used to the swing being in the house.  After the quick 10 minute swing assembly was done all I needed to do was find 4 C batteries in the house (that took more than 10 minutes!). After a quick stop at the store to get batteries we were ready to test it out.  J-Girl was eagerly waiting to put her baby doll in the swing to practice for baby brother and I really was thrilled that she was so excited too.

J-Girl wanted to be mommy’s helper too!  You can also see one of the small yellow buttons that will easily fold down the swing for traveling etc.
After pressing the two small yellow buttons on each side, you simply fold the seat together and voila! the Sunnyside Safari™ Portable Swing is ready to go!


What I love about the Sunnyside Safari™ Portable Swing:

  • easy to assemble-just needed a phillips screw driver and 4 C batteries
  • cute animal characters for added fun for baby and home decor
  • easy to switch between the 2 reclining positions of the chair
  • user friendly panel located on right side of swing-large dial makes switching speeds a breeze!
  • versatility-for ages birth & up and to use up until baby is 25 lbs
  • lightweight structure makes carrying the swing around the house or to take upstairs easy
  • compact folding unit great for storing in closet when not in use or easily put into the back of the van or trunk of car
  • it is so quiet while on!  my FAVORITE feature!
