Editor's Notes

March 19, 2019:

While most parents seek out a portable swing to take with them out of the house, we included the Graco Glider Light because although it doesn't fold, it offers one of the plushest, cozy seats available, plus it has a lightweight frame that's easy to move from room to room around the house. The Fisher-Price Take Along took the top spot because the base feels extra sturdy and it offers the versatile option to be a stationary seat.
